Hello all,
As of today I have started calorie counting.Yipee!!

Here is a little about me -
I'm 25 and started dieting in March 2010.
I have been trying to loose weight forever and eventually bit the bullet about in March. I lost 7lb in 2 weeks with exercising and eating better then I started Cambridge Diet which I was on for 3 months and lost 35lbs. I loved the CD diet and it kick started me into loosing weight but now I need to start living abit and toning up.

I am joining the gym 12th July and as of today I'm going to be aiming to have 1200 calories a day.

I am goign to use this diary to keep a track of how I do, what I eat and what exercise I do and hopefully make some good friends.

I WI on a Saturday morning, so the weight on my ticker is what i weighed this morning.

Well lunch wasn't too bad ay all. I served up my own plate full of food and even left my roast potatoe...I think it may finally be sinking in!!

I will update later with my day's food diary looking good at the moment...thinking about having scrambled egg on toast for tea, Mmmm.

Well done for resisting the call of the roast potatoe! I managed it today as well - my mum had done a Sunday roast but I ended up just having the veg in a wholewheat pitta.

How are you finding the after effects of CD, I think if I ever tried a similar diet I would end up binging once off it!

I'm so greatful to be eating again and savoring every mouthful. When I was on CD I had days when I would binge and thought it would continue once I finished CD but it hasn't. I know it's only day 2 of CC but loving it.

I can not believe I manage CD for 3 months. It was hard but now it's time to enjoy life, food and drink. I have joined the gym today start on 12th July so looking forward to keep loosing and toning up.

Before I started dieting I would buy cheap food ie/basics (super markets own brand) and whatever was on offer, Now i'm going to buy quality over quantity.

Sorry for the rambling post. Ha ha, hope it makes sense.:)

I find calorie counting is good as you can work round your cravings, If I deprive myself I always end up over eating.

Unfortunatly I'm mostly living on tesco market value, I do pay more for healthier options but still on a pretty tight budget

Hey

I don't think your day should have to much on an effect as long as your good the rest of the week.

I would imagine you have around a 250 deficiet for today so its really not to bad :) and as you said you were on a course today and had a bday party so you controlled yourself well when you think how much you could have eatern!

Thank you Naomi. The 35lb was thanks to Cambridge diet :)

Shanny I was nervous about joining the gym but I'm looking forward to it now :D

WI is Saturday morning, in all honestly I know my calorie intake has been low this week but nothing like it was on CD so initially I am expecting a small gain :confused:
