Didn't think I would ever be doing a weight loss diary or be choosing to lose weight over a long period of time. I always look and go for quick fix. I've done exante for three weeks before my holiday last year to lose a stone and half in 3 weeks. I've done crash diets where I've barely eaten for a week to get a quick result of half a stone. Juicing before big nights out, but the end result has always been piling the weight back on plus more so when I weighed my self 2 week ago I weighed the heaviest I have ever weighed at 14st 5lbs. Since then I have made dramatic changes and ditched as many sweet treats and unhealthy foods from my kitchen as possible. (which is easier said than done when my OH loves sweet treats and has no need to ditch them). My intention now is to change my eating habits. No more not eating all day then having a massive binge in the evenings! I'm now calorie counting at around 1200 calories a day. This will go up as my weight goes down. So far in two weeks I have lost 7lbs bringing my weight down to 13st 12lbs. I'm not going to set unrealistic goals, I'm just going to try and eat as healthily as possible and get into good habits so when the weight comes off I can maintain it and not pile it all back! Sorry if I've wrote a long first entry but my motivation always wanes after a couple weeks and I'm hoping by writing a diary and posting my achievements and such will keep me going so much longer than doing it by self. I plan on weighing my self on Saturday to see if I've lost any more weight. But as a serial weigher I'm finding it really hard to stay away from the scales. May have to get the OH to take them to work with them haha.
