After a couple of weeks adjusting to my new inner voice which was determined to lose weight I decided to get back in control of my eating. I signed up to the foodfocus website (what an absolute godsend that is!), nearly a couple of weeks ago, and haven't looked back. With 4 stone to lose (ideally), and failed attempts at different commercial diets in the past, I know that re-education and 'change for life' is the solution. I've eaten whatever I wanted (some portions smaller, some larger), and kept a close eye on what calories are in different foods. Despite a gentle target of 1lb weight loss per week, I've lost 5 lbs in just under two weeks. :talk017: I'd always resisted dieting in the past, as I thought it was going to be such a slow process to lose 4 stone that it wasn't worth starting. Crazy logic, but I guess that's how we end up in this mess in the first place! But, get this, with a target of 1.5lbs per week, I might meet my goal by Christmas. Wish me luck!
