    Hello, my names Leah. I started weight watchers a few months ago but due to work I missed my first 2 weigh in so sort of gave up. I did however lose 4lbs in my first week :) Since then I've been calorie counting and managed to lose a stone.
    I've got a holiday coming up in 5 weeks with my bf (our first together) so I'm trying really hard to lose as much as I can buy then because I don't want to feel self conscious and ultimately have a rubbish holiday because of it.
    So I'm going to start a diary here and hopefully you guys can help and support me and vice versa. I've been a member of minimins for a while as I used to do sw ( lost a stone and half...then put it back on!) and found it really helpful.
    So this is my first week back on it and I'm really determined to make it work this time
    Sorry for the long rambling post lol
    Hope you're all well :)

    Thanks guys. I've set myself little mini goals to work towards otherwise I would find it too daunting. My first is to lose 8-10lb by my holiday :)
    Does any one else do this?

    Karocal...I know what you mean about getting bored with the food. That's what happened to me doing sw. I find it helps to look through the mag and online for recipes and inspiration. Though I do struggle with lunches and always have the same thing. Well done or your weight loss x

    I had old measurements from october from when I attempted to diet but it didnt work and and from a month ago so it was nice to see a difference in those even if it was small. I was thinking about doing measurements every month as I currently weigh myself every fortnight, if I do it every week I end up jumping on the scale every day and then losing the diet lol. I have to buy a measuring tape though as I lost the other one hahaha :D

    Yh every month would be a better idea because you might see more of a difference than from week to week. I don't know how you manage to only weigh in every 2 weeks. I'm a compulsive weigher lol but I've tried really hard not to jump on this week until Monday so its going to be a complete shock

    I'm another fan of mini-goals. Overall I hope to lose approx 3.5 stone (ish) from my starting weight but I always set my goal at half a stone at a time. I'm use WW online and find that works really well for me. Thinking about 3.5 stone is just too overwhelming, 7lbs at a time is achievable and I LOVE the feeling of meeting it.

    Well done for avoiding the scales - I'm a nightmare and my compulsion seems to be increasing lol.

    Good luck!

    Hi,

    Yep I think mini-goals pretty essential! I joined up to 'May challenge' thread to lose 8lbs in May- great support. Best of luck for starting again! Sounds like you've got excellent motivation :)

    7lb goals are really good :) very achievable but enough to make a difference :)

    I might have to join that thread too as that's my goal before my holiday in June :)

    I've just been watching supersize vs superskinny...it makes me so sad. It's so strange that we depend on food to help us deal with things x

    Saturday :(

    Breakfast:
    Cheerios - 5pp
    Cereal bar - 2pp
    Curly wurly - 3pp

    Lunch:
    Zero point soup
    Curly wurly - 3
    Vimto lolly x 3 - 3pp

    Not a great day food wise. Just wanted to snack all day hence the 2 curly wurlys and Vimto lollys and the soup really filled me up.
    I then went out the see john bishop perform so sort of forgot about tea and by the time I got home it was too late to eat.

    Dailies used: 16/29 :/
