    Here starts the diary of a serial dieter...
    I'm 9 months off the big '50' (how the heck did that happen?) and reckon that I've pretty much started 2 diets a year since I was about 17, hence my 64th diet, and - famous last words - hopefully my last. Over the last couple of years I started out with slimming world, moved onto 5:2, and now with 1 stone to go am trying calorie counting with MFP.

    I would really, really, REALLY like to be at goal for my Birthday, so, as you do, I've had a major pig out today, and tomorrow I start. Hopefully by keeping a diary I might actually stick to it.

    Here's hoping...

    Welcome & best of luck to you!!

    9 months is plenty of time to drop that last stone. I think keeping a diary does really help :)

    Looking forward to following your journey x

    Aw thanks for the welcome, having a bit of support will make things much easier.

    I got weighed this morning and was 10 stone 10 pounds, so I've slightly more than a stone to lose. Scary as it means that I've managed to put on half a stone since giving up 5:2 three weeks ago! Today should be a good day as my husband is on a fast day, so I tend not to overdo it for our evening meal.

    It's too hot to be at work!

    It's horrible and muggy here now.

    Right, I've been on MFP and I'm to have 1290 calories a day, so that's not too bad.
    Todays food is

    Breakfast - McVities breakfast biscuits

    Lunch - Warburtons wrap with ham

    Dinner - Haddock, new potatoes and peas

    Snacks - Slice of toast and half a Mullerlight with some oats mixed in

    Calories - 1174
    Steps - 5836 so far

    Off to fathom out how to put my URL in my signature...

    Day one successfully under my belt. I managed 7500 steps and came in a few calories under target.
    I really hope I can stick to it this time.

    Todays plan

    Breakfast - Breakfast biscuits

    Lunch - Ham wrap

    Dinner - Pasta bake

    Snacks - Toast, Mullerlight with oats and maybe a chocolate hobnob if calories allow :)

    Hello there, Good luck with your new diet - don't worry about going a little bit over - 1200 is quite low in my opinion. Hard to know where to set your limits though. I have gone quite high and even so I have lost weight when I have stuck to it!. Trying to regain some motivation just now so that this can be my "last" diet too!

    Hi Nettee, hope you find your motivation! If you do can you let me know where to look cos mine might be lurking there too
    :)
    I afraid I've blown it today
    *hangs head in shame*
    All we can do is keep trying....tomorrow is another day x

    yes, one day at a time. Keep drawing a line and starting again. I have been off for a fortnight but have begun to reign myself back in by making myself come back here and posting.

    Have a good day today
