Well...here 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 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! 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!
