    xJoanneJJx Well-Known Member we are! Like many others I'm starting this diary to keep a record of my days and I'm positive there'll be a few rants along the way :p

    I'm 20 years old, I joined SW on Tuesday evening and weighed in at 16st 4lbs. I'be been overweight probably since the age of..10 maybe. I've always hated myself because of it and have tried many times to loose weight but evidently I haven't kept it off! On New Years Eve i decided "This is my year" and it is going to be a year of change! I hate looking this way, feeling this way and not having the confidence to show the real me. I've lost 4lbs since the start of the month on my own and using a running app on my Iphone (Go Running) I now do a 30 min walk/run every other day and have signed up to run my first Race for Life in July. Going on 2 holidays abroad this year..i WILL looks good! :D

    Attached is a picture of me taken a couple of months ago (on the left..obviously!)


    I'm not very confident with working out syns yet so feel free to correct me if i mess up!

    My food today...

    Brekkie- 2 Weetabix (HEb) with milk (HEa) and a banana

    Snack- Grapes

    Dinner- Homemade brown rice salad with tuna, cucumber, peppers and mattesons (6.5) Dressing of olive oil (2) white wine vinegar and lemon juice

    Tea- SW mustard chicken and swede mash, brocolli and green beans

    I've just had an alpen light bar (3)

    Edit: Got the munchies! Hartleys jelly pot (0.5)

    Total syns- 12

    30 mins run/walk
    30 mins regular walking
    A good day i think!

    In quite a good mood today! Got myself organised and treated myself to a couple of nice notebooks from paperchase (Sure i have an obsession with that shop!) One will be a general diary and the other I'm going to use as a weekly planner for my meals and such.
    Just been to the supermarket and was very good and stuck to my shopping list 100% (A little victory!) only thing "Naughty" was a bag of those snack sized chocolate bars which i will use for my syns a couple times a week.

    Yep I'm going to classes and on the extra easy plan! My first meeting was on Tuesday :)

    Unsure about my group atm..the one i chose is in quite a student area (I work very near to it) and i'm going with my brothers girlfriend who lives there. It's a small class..20 people if that and all students i think. There was a new temp consultant who says she'll be there for 3-6 months and she gave me a bit of a background to the group saying it hasn't had a permanent leader for years due to low numbers and they can't cover their rent in the summer when the students go home etc. Anyway, will be sticking with it and there's plenty nearby if i need to change! x
