    Calorie Counting
    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 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:
