Journey to a new me Calorie counting

After many years of yo yo dieting I am currently the heaviest I have ever been. When I stood on the scales and they stared back at me saying 18st 11lbs I was devastated, but it has really given me the shock I needed to start the journey to a brand new me. I have tried a lot of diets in the past and they seem to work for a while but never seem to last so this time I am going to follow a healthy calorie controlled diet. Also I hope this diary will keep me on track as I will update my meals and weekly weigh ins to keep my motivation going. I am off to Ibiza on 05/10/2015 so this is my goal date fingers crossed xx:):):):)

Thought I would try to start adding in some exercise this week but I am so unfit at the moment it is unbelievable!!! Thought I would try and start walking to work instead of getting the bus (bearing in mind it is uphill all the way). Took me 25 minutes and was a very bright beetroot colour by the time I got to work but my god am I glad I did it, felt so much better in myself for the rest of the day and I know the more I do it the easier it will get. Food still going well and no real cravings yet to speak of

Breakfast: Boiled egg on toast
Lunch: Tuna salad
Snack: Apple and orange
Dinner Oven fish with brocolli and carrots

Breakfast: Boiled egg on toast
Snack: Go Ahead bar
Lunch Boiled egg and salad
