please if anyone is reading this please feel free to post, feel a bit lonely writing to myself all the time!

so this week seems to be better, i'm managing, most days, do drink 2 litres of water (with teas on top)
have finally found myself a low fat healthy (!!!) chocolate fix - Alpro soya desserts - organic, made from soya, dairy free, and only 2% fat and SSSOOOO nice! and they so hit the spot in terms of chocolate cravings.

exercise is down, clocks going back has really forced me to cut back on the snacks, due to lack of light at night to get my exercise in.
so the last 2 days at work i've really forced myself to stop snacking in the afternoon or have fruit or an alpro soya instead.

so today i weighed 176 which looking at my last post, is the same, but i'm feeling much more positive about this, unlike my last few posts. i'm just taking this all a lb, well half a pound, at a time. planning to lose slowly and KEEP IT OFF!!!!!
no i have around 1500-2000 a day anyway but wonder how much to drop by now exercise is less. perhaps 1250-1600????
today = 176

breakfast - half porridge half meusli (250)
alpro soya (115)

lunch - bread bun toasted (135) with 3 eggs scrambled (270)
alpro soya dark (110)

bit of tesco ready made pasta (100)

so total so far = 980 cals. haven't had tea yet though, and am fancying some chocolate whilst watchin x factor!
today i was 175.8 12 7.8

got down to 12 5.4 10 days ago - want to be there again for this thursday for sw weigh in

sun 12 7.8
mon 12 9.4 WTF!

congratulations on your engagement!!! What a great incentive to stick to your weightloss. x
16/01/11 = 12 1.8 = 169.8 :)
Your doing really well x I'm calorie counting too, I've found a boiled egg mid afternoon fills me up and stops me feeling tired.
Also I have a cs shake for lunch if I'm busy 210cals and fill you up better than the SF ones x
