Hi Decided to create a diary so I can track my progress and hopefully identify what works for me and what causes slop ups. (Hopefully won't be many of those) I'm A 44 year old female , who at my heaviest weighed 18st 6 lb's. Have been a yoyo dieter / binge / emotional eater since my teens . At my last attempt , I Managed to get down to 10stone 3 and kept it off for a while however over the last year it has crept back up to 12st 7 argghhhh. This is mainly down to working away , being lazy and just basically slipping back into bad habits. I'm now at a stage where most of my nice clothes don't fit me and I'm dragging out some of the old ones )0: Started this diet on Saturday, so far so good , but know the challenge will be when I go back to work tomorrow - I have a pretty stressful job and work daft hours !! But know if I don't nail this now in another years time , I will be we in my way back to square one !! So things I need to do :- Prepare food for work - too easy to grab 'rubbish' between meetings Eat proper food - fresh veg instead of ready meals Get my backside back down the gym / swimming. Again - I have no excuse, it's open til 10pm Keep track of my progress in diary Weigh in s will be Friday mornings - so best get off my backside and borrow my bruvs dog and go for a long walk - it's a start and gym is shut today !!
