    Day one

    Well this is it, the beginning :) of hopefully a slim new me. A bit of background info - ive been here many times before, slimming world, weight watchers, cambridge, cabbage soup. But i always give in . last year should have been one of the best years ever , i got married ( size 18 dress :sigh: ) didnt have a honeymoon, never wanted to think how hot i would be in august, started university ( look like a whale in the uniform ) but it wasnt happy, i never realised before how much my weight affects my life. This year i want it to be different, we take my son to Butlins in April - i want to be able to do things with him not wonder if i look like the daft fat woman, or will i fit in that seat on the ride ?. He also starts school in September and i dnt want him to be embarrased of me like i was of my mum.

    So here goes !!!

    Interesting, I've always slept like a log since I started Atkins, I had bad night sometimes prior to that but I can't say I've had a problem since.
