A little bit about me.... I am 23 and used to be a very happy size 8, this was however 5 years ago :sigh:, I then worked in a bar, unsociable hours and alcohol on tap meant the pounds piled on! At this stage I had reach 10.5 stone and was getting worried . After 4.5 years I left bar work and moved into an office job, sitting down, cake runs, breakfast butty's and all the rest meant another 2 stone hit me like a bus in only 10 Months!!! :cry: At this point I decided enough was enough. However I lacked motivation and needed inspiration...Inspiration then cam in the form of a break to Mexico in September. so after my little story.... I need to loose at least 2.5 stone to feel comfortable on Holiday, I need to do this in 17 Weeks!! I managed to loose 7.5 pounds in my first week , so my diary starts at week 2! Please help me! I will appreciate all feedback and help you can give me, or even alternative foods, recipes. Thanks in advance for your help!
