Lianne's diary


Silver Member
Hi, Is there a thread for writing food diaries or am I ok to plonk it here? I am getting married on May 3rd and have about a stone to lose with a 2inch loss from my bottom and waist to fit into my dress which comes in the beginning of March. I'm planning on doing lots of excercise and eat 1400 cal a day.

Day 1

Banana, tomato soup and brown roll.

Do exactly what suits you Liannisso, it's a good idea to have your own diary i think.
Congrats on your upcoming wedding....how exciting!!
1400 cal is very sensible, especially as you are adding exercise.

I remember the seamstress having to take my wedding dress is too as i dropped a couple of dress sizes.

It looks like you're doing really well! :)

The only suggestions I can make is to maybe swap some of your fruit for veg and up your calories by about 100-200 at least when you're exercising? I'm trying to have a 200ish cal protein shake right after I exercise.

You really are doing so well, better than me lol! xx

Hiya. Thanks for your comments - I haven't been on the excercise as yet but was thinking about eating 200cal about 2 hours before my runs just so I have a good amount of energy. How are the protein shakes? If not those is there something that would be good to keep up the energy levels enough for excercise ?

I havent chocen one yet but I've heard they don't taste the best and it's good to make them with yogurt and fresh fruit!

Otherwise, muesli bars (watch sugar) or homemade fruit smoothies etc. Most snack type things are good.

The reason I'm going for the protein shakes is that the high protein levels supposedly help to prevent muscle loss while exercising or something lol! Saying that, a 1 egg chicken omelette packed with veggies could be good before exercise!

hth xx

I was thinking eggs would be good - pain is I would need to have them in work and I haven't the means to cook with here. Perhaps a couple of boiled eggs and chicken would do the trick.

Good luck with your journey!! Are you keeping a food diary? x


One day at a time :)
I have a written diary and am posting on the What have we eaten today thread.

Today I've had:

B: porridge made with a sliced banana and cinnamon and nutmeg
L: Tuna salad on 1 x slice bread
S: chocolate mouse
D: cod, potatoes & broccoli
S: homemade lentil soup :)


totals around 1400 inc the soup :)

Got stuck out in the snow on Wedneday night - took me three hours to get home and by that time I was so fed up that I went off the diet. I'm going to write down what I ate and calorie content so I know exactly how off track I went.

3 x glasses of red wine (510)

2 brown toast with butter

Large double choc chip cookie
3 x M&S swiss chocolate
1 x chocolate digestive
handful of dry roasted nuts
1/2 special chow mein
1/2 portion of crispy beef

I will calculate this later, I'm so depressed now that I've written it down! How can I rectify this? I need to lose the weight to get into my dress. I still have a cough and runny nose so can't do any more excercise than just walking


One day at a time :)
you can rectify it by drawing a line under it and moving on as though it never happened sweetie - learn from it and move on, there's no point dwelling!
