MummyClaire's Diary

Welcome to my SW diet thread I will start my diary from yesterday when i started the diet.

Please feel free to comment and advise and give tips on other things to try, ect. All help is appreciated[FONT=&quot] [/FONT]!

A bit about me and my goals:

[FONT=&quot]My Name is Claire, I am 25 years old, and I weigh 99kg / 15.5 Stone. Just over 3 Years ago I had my daughter Phoebe, and I gave up work. Since then the weight has just piled on, I went from having a job where I was on my feet for 8 - 10 hours a day and usually went out clubbing 3 times a week so was fairly active ... to sitting at my computer or in front of the telly for 8 - 10 hours a day :(

[/FONT] [FONT=&quot]I cant believe what I have been eating for the last few years, no wonder I have gone from a size 16 (the day I left hospital after having my daughter) to 3 years later being a size 22 (a 20 if they are stretchy trousers)[/FONT]

[FONT=&quot]Now it is time for a change and a new start to a healthier (and slimmer) life

I have decided to do Slimming World’s Extra Easy diet plan.
I know it might seem ages away but my deadline is .... 1st September 2011!

[FONT=&quot]There are many reasons for choosing this month, my best mate gets married (and has asked me to be a bridesmaid), my daughter will be starting school and I will be going back to work.
So lots of motivation which should be good!

I will be doing my diet in 3 stages:

My First milestone doesn't have a target weight just want to be slimmer and healthier by the end of this year! I'm going to take it 1 day then 1 week then 1 month at a time!

My 2nd Milestone will start in January next year, once I have my head around the diet and am used to a healthier lifestyle, I will start to give myself a target weight to achieve for my September deadline!

My 3rd Milestone will be to get down to 12 stone (or less) and keep my weight down! Hopefully this 12 stone milestone will be the same time as my 2nd milestone if not before, but if it isn't and i am happy with my weight then i wont mind :)

[/FONT] The reason I am writing my weight in kg and stone is because I am using "The Biggest Loser USA" on my wii for my exercise so will take my weight as what it is when I weigh in on there (which is done in kg) and then will also convert it into stones so its easy to understand.

Hi hun im also 25 and mum to sophie who is nearly 7 months! Like you i have piled the weight on! Anyways im by no means an expert but i believe from what people say on here is that you must have your syns (unless say you are saving them for a night out) as they are a important part of the sw way of life. Also i think you may need to eat more lol ( i know shock horror!)...loads of fruit and veg and snacks of yogurts etc then you could have some syns in the evening on something you enjoy? Emx
hi, thanks for the advice :) i know its not good having no syns, i will get some more syns in, i am kinda saving some of them as i am going to have a bacon bagette with ketchup at the weekend!... i was planning on having some in those 2 days, i just found i ran out of time to eat anymore before i went to bed lol

i was on the go nearly all day yesterday and the day just flew by ! .... i didn't have lunch till about 2:30! lol

i am making it up today though ... i had a yummy cocopops cereal bar for breakfast :D .. well worth every syn :)
i think i don't snack much as i have quite big meals ... i try to get some fruit and veg in every day ..... i didn't even eat all my yoghurt yesterday morning so i did finish that as my evening snack :) .... i will have to look at more peoples diarys for other ideas, i have been so busy syn valueing everything in my cupboards i forget to actually eat sometimes ..... maybe i need to write myself a meal time plan! :)
