    Here goes :)

    I've been on CD for a few months and have been faffing for the past few weeks, so I'm here on WW (starting tomorrow!)

    Going to keep a diary/food diary on here to help me stick to it and so I can finally get to 9 stone!

    :sigh:

    Why can I never stick to a diet?

    I had my 4 points at cadets, then afterwards I had melba toasts, iced gems, and a choc mousse :eek:

    Total overeating: 6 points :eek:
    I'd have to do 55 mins of high intensity exercise to work that off! :(

    I'm adjusting to fact that I can eat low-fat rubbish! :p
    ANYTHING is allowed!

    Though I'm staying away from high-point chocolate bars, I don't have a huge allowance (19 points) so a dairy milk is more points than my lunch today (!)

    Been swimming, so my points allowance is 22 today.

    Today:

    Breakfast
    CD shake with milk: 4 (not the 5 I originally thought, apparently!)
    Egg: 1.5 (Calculated this evening and is definitely correct for my eggs)

    5.5

    Lunch
    Melba toasts: 2 (pack of 10, Asda)
    Ice Gems: 1.5
    WW Fruities: 0.5

    4

    Snacks (pre dinner)
    5 marshmallow/wafer things: 2.5
    Half pack melba toasts: 1
    Small amount low fat soft cheese: 0.25
    Half pack Fruities: 0.25 (I'm seriously going to have toilet problems if I keep eating fruities so much! :p)

    4


    I think I've missed something, because I'm sure I have 8 points left, not 9 :confused:

    Did a bad thing :(

    I'm thinking of dropping Chemistry (it's my 4th A Level, totally unnecessary apart from to make up for my GCSEs) and I told my dad and he had a go at me, said I was stupid for dropping it (haven't even done it yet!) and I was going to go to a cr*p uni blah blah blah.
    So I reached for the (low point) food :doh:

    Don't really know how to NOT comfort eat. :sigh:

    Had dinner and couldn't eat it all, I felt sick halfway through :confused:
    So only 3.5 pts there.

    Breakfast: 5.5
    Lunch: 4
    Dinner: 3.5

    13

    Snacks:
    Mallows: 4.5
    Melba toasts: 2
    Cheese and fruities: 0.5

    7


    Total: 20.

    Me and my sister can't decide how much our swimming was worth.

    I did 40 lengths in 1 hr 15 mins, she did 50 lengths in 1 hr 30 mins.

    Any ideas?

    Today:

    Breakfast
    Milkshake with skimmed milk: 4

    Lunch
    Melba toasts: 2
    Ice gems: 1.5
    Fruit Pastilles: 2.5

    Dinner
    Chicken noodles: 4

    Snacks
    2 Highlights mousses: 2
    Crabstick, bouillon and half pack Fruities: 0.5 (they're all about nothing, so add them all together and I get about 0.5 :))

    I have 2.5 points left, and will probably eat a pack of Fruities or the choc and caramel melts by the end of today, so will have just about made up for the crap I ate on Monday :eek:

    Hey jennikay, don't fret about the Chemistry thing...I'm from Ireland so I don't really know how GCSEs translate college wise...Would you get much more pointwise or opportunity wise if you did it? If so do it...If it is unnecessary and dropping it would give you more time to concentrate on other subjects and do better in those then dropping it is a good thing!x Best of luck with whatever your decision! :)

    I need 3 A levels to get into uni, and I'd have 3 if I dropped chemistry.

    Me and my mum are meeting with my head of year on Monday to discuss things. :eek:



    On the food front...

    I had a few marshmallow things earlier and had enough points left to finish off the packet.
    Then I thought, hmm, I'll just have 1 more, only 0.5 points :)
    Then another, then.. well, I've overeaten 4.5 points, but I think marshmallows have a laxative effect so things may 'sort themselves out' :eek:

    It's funny because on days I've done this, I always seem to lose an lb, lets see if I can keep it off this time :D

    Hope meeting goes well on Monday. And remember you are the one who has to do the hard work with your courses not your mam. It will be interesting to see what head of year says. They will have your best interests at heart.

    Good luck
    and with the diet

    To be honest, the head of year will probably have the school's interests at heart (i.e. more money if I keep it on.)

    I don't think they understand how difficult I find chemistry, and how much more work it takes to get a B then it took to get 3 As in my other subjects. :(
    My dad completely doesn't understand, as chemistry is *his* subject - he was a chemical engineer for 30 years, and he can't understand how I find it difficult.

    Plus, if they make me keep it on, I'm going to put all my effort into my other 3 and will probably end up with a C in chemistry, which would just be humiliating because that was what my brother got! :p

    Haven't eaten yet today, so will be updating the food front later.

    Make sure you tell them how hard you find chemistry then and remind them that you will therefore need to spend many many hours on the chemistry which is hours taken away from the other 3 subjects.
