I realised I should start my own diary because I was just bombarding everyone else's I never really felt the need to have my own diary before, but Ive always slipped up and failed and restarted so maybe this will keep me in check! and keep me off everyone else's diaries, moaning about my own issues! So a bit of background... Been mucking about with VLCDs and GI since 2008 when I was just 16 stone, found myself all the way up for 20 stone in Nov and thought something has to change! Been up and down like crazy and never sticking to anything. Going for a slightly different approach this time of anything is better than nothing. I know its not to everyones taste, but I doing a bit of this and bit of that. Losely following a celebrity slim plan of 2 packets of meal replacement, 1 small low carb meal and 3 snacks. I am going to eat out and Im not going to hate myself when I break the rules. I am going to be sensible and find work arounds. Be proud of myself when I simply eat a smaller portion of the bad stuff. I know this might upset people but I have finally found something workable and realistic for the long term! I am also going to accept that I am not going to be a size 14 in 10 days... A bit about me... I am 24 and have just returned to education to be a mature student for a year. Which is really useful as it has taken me out of my working routine and allowed me to change my food related habits. I also live alone, with no pesky bf/family to scupper my dieting plans! So because Ive done/am doing ever diet going, everyone is welcome to come along for the ride! Im interested in VLCD tips, healthy eating/cooking, investigating SW/WW for future reference, calorie counting and exercise! Mostly, if you want to have a moan about being a fatty and putting the world to rights, you'll fit right in with me! haha Lastly, I do have a very sarcastic sense of humour and I do worry that isnt conveyed well in text, so please dont take anything I write too seriously! and anything I write about diets/my dieting is not always the company line... dont be offended, just my 2 pence!
