    Wow...just been sent some holiday snaps from two weeks ago and I don't even recognise myself! I'm mortified, I can't believe I've got like this..I feel like staying in my room and never coming out. I just don't feel like myself, it's really getting me down. I keep losing, then putting back on. I have never been given a stone award and I've been doing this diet for months! I really need to get my bum into gear!
    I've decided to start a fresh diary and religiously write in it..and i'm going to be 100% honest with you all as well so here goes...

    I've had a total off plan today! I was weighed this morning at a different slimming world class (I normally weigh in on a saturday) & i gained 1/2lb! It is star week but i suppose that's a bit of an excuse right?

    Tomorrow i'm going to stick to plan in the day and I am going out to a friends house to have a couple night and they are doing a buffet so i'll be off it then!

    Then it's full boom after that! I'm going to plan my weeks and meals and hopefully i'll do well! I never want to be this size again!

    I currently weigh 13st6lb and i want to get to 10st then i'll see how i feel

    I'm currently a size 16/18 and i would love to be 12/14

    I would love all your support and guidance, feel free to comment :D
