    I have never been on a diet before... I guess I never had to as I was such an active child. Uni did it for me; all the midnight snacks and fizzy drinks in the mad rush to finish another essay.

    Uni has ended and now changes have to be made. So, here is my first entry. Im not sure what I should be writing and what I shouldn't. But here goes...

    Im sure there are many threads that say 'I'm a chocoholic' well I'm another one. The creaminess of it makes me happy; or I thought it did. Keep your friends close an your enemies closer; well I think I kept it too close! But now is the time to change!

    I have been dieting for two nearly two weeks and so far I have had two curleywurleys, which in comparison to my 3 or 4 bars a day plus deserts etc, is an amazing milestone.

    I have also started walking my fiancés dog and doing lots of fun exercise on the wii fit . Which is another change for the better.

    So here is to Tuesday and my first weigh in at 'manor munchies' and hopefully the more weight I loose the more confidence I'll gain...

    Love n stuff

    Saturday has always been my biggest downfall, and being new to dieting I think I have made a bad turn today. What do you think?

    Breakfast: fruit salad with muller light yoghurt (2pp)

    Dinner: fried chicken wrap with BBQ sauce and cheese and a small portion of chips (arghhhh) (18pp)

    Tea: ham and mushroom pasta with tomatoes and cucumbers (11pp)

    Snacks: maltesers (my weekly treat for being so good all week) (7pp)

    29/29 pro points
    10/49 pro points used 39 left

    Not the best day I have had so far but hey it's the weekend.

    Hey chickie

    If u feel bad on by eating that then just be really strict with yourself tomorrow it makes me feel better anyhow,

    Don't restrict yourself from things you enjoy you can still eat what u want just be more sensible about things for example my fave Saturday tea is fajitas I normally eat until all The tortillas are gone,
    So tonight I had 2 with reduced fat sour cream and reduced fat weight watchers cheese ( n ovbs smaller portions of them to ) I realised I was fall after that and that was 3 hours ago and I'm still full,
    I find that restricting myself from things I want makes me give up easily ive lost 8 lbs. In just over week, and I am not giving up this time. :) good luck xxx

    Thank you, if I think back a few weeks I would have easily eaten a big share bag of sweets but I had no wish to today... Smaller portions of everything and less bread will hopefully see me on the way to a slimmer me... Fingers crossed for Tuesday and getting weighed!

    I have only been a member for about 7hours and already I feel as if I now have the confidence to rock this dieting... the support on this site for everyone is amazing and I know it is going to help me get down to my target weight of 10 stone.

    My fiance has just commented that he can see a difference in my shape already, personally I cannot see where he is looking: the support from him however is very nice and again will be another help in shedding the pounds.

    I am so nervous about getting weighed on Tueday, I will be devistated if I have not lost, but only time will tell. I am looking forward to my Sunday dinner tomorrow though, even if it means I have to use some of my weekly pro points for my gravy and yorkshire pud hehe.

    I am now sure I can do this for the long haul...

    My mum dropped all her weight and dusnt really listen to me When I talk about it n I go on about it so much to my partner I think he's lost interest it, so ive become addicted to this instead ( EVEN WORSE as I have The app on my phone lol )

    I am doing the weight watchers pro points, a few of the girls from work have started 'manor munchies' and apparently the last time they did it there was a lot of people who lost a lot of weight. It means that I have a lot of support at work too.

    My boyfriend proposed on Christmas day and although we know the wedding won't be for 3 or 4 years I want to loose it now and keep it off so I can feel amazing in a wedding dress hehe. Thats my long term goal but for now I would be happy to buy a nice pair of river island jeans and not have a huge muffin top hehe.

    HAHA that made me laugh so much... It would be good to look like rhianna I agree but a skinnier verion of me will have to do. Im sure my fiance would still look at rhianna, although unless I was a semi-naked Uma Therman look a-like then anyone on tv/in mags are gorgeous because of the full team they have to make them up and the airbrushing haha.

    Manor munchies is just a club at work (we work in a school called manor) a few of the members go to weight watchers so it is a way that we can get the information while only paying £1 a week hehe.

    I want to be about 10 stone, however I have not been that weight (or anything close since i was a teenager) so I am going to take it month by month. I think I will know when I am the right weight (a size 12 river island jeans will do lol)

    Yes i am a teacher, I also trained in primary however I am teaching one-to-one maths in a secondary school at the moment (so rewarding) it is quite frustrating when half of my 7 and 8 year olds from my final placement had better maths skills than some of the 13 year olds I teach at the minute.

    Are you a TA in a primary or secondary school?
