Louise's Diary!

So after having a read through lots of peoples diaries, I thought I would start my own! Please excuse me if I ramble on a bit - its nice to be able to let it all out! :p

So a bit about me, I am a married mum of one very nearly 5 year old boy (he is 5 on 19/12/09), I am 24 and we live in Hertfordshire. I have struggled with my weight mainly for the last 5 years - I never lost my pregnancy weight and I got very bad post natel depression and basically used to eat and eat and eat! I tried several different diets through the years, lighter life, cambridge diet, weight watchers and never really stuck to anything or found one that suited me!

I have decided that I am actually going to do it this time and loose weight! Mainly because of health reasons - I have developed asthma since my weight gain and it cripples me at times tbh, over the last 2 years I have probably had courses of steriods 20+ times. I also would love to have another child and as I have Poly cystic ovary syndrome the doctors won't help me until I have lost weight and am at a healthy BMI.

I have been put on reductil by the doctors and at the moment it seems to help, I am also following the slimming world diet and trying to up my exercise to daily.

I was 19 stone 2lb in June last year, so I lost some weight prior to joining Slimming world on the 11/11/09, when I was 17 stone 12lbs. I lost 5lb in my first week and 2 in my second.

Thank you for reading, and I will try and update daily to help keep myself on track!
