    Hi everyone.

    I am Josie and I started SW for the first time just after Christmas. I kept a diary on this forum and went from 11 stone 1 to 10 stone 3 in about 4 months. Unfortunately after about May I fell off the wagon and some of the weight has crept back on and I think I am now about 10 stone 9. I can certainly feel it as my tummy and sides feel fat when I sit down, I am apple shaped and do not carry weight well!!
    So tomorrow (Mon 25 July) I will restart my food diary and hope I have the willpower that I had after Christmas.
    I will weigh tomorrow morning and start posting my weight loss journey and food diary from then.
    Say hi if you're reading and I love reading other's diaries for inspiration too!!
    I really hope I can keep going and won't fail this time.

    Hi Josiecat

    Good luck - sure you'll do it this time! It's easy to give in when you haven't got heaps to lose.

    I too am "appley" - big fat tum and sides but reasonable hips etc. I wish I could push a bit up into the boob area; that would even it out rather nicely! Sadly, the only way is eating less.

    I have just had 2!! bowls of porridge to try to avoid pigging out and realise that even with skimmed milk and splenda, it comes to about 500 cals!!

    Yaaa, I'll settle for a Jaffa Cake next time I need a sweet fix....

    Good luck Pomooky XX

    Hi Valerie, sorry for the late reply! The diet coke chicken is lovely. It has a chinesey sort of taste and everyone I've given it to loves it.
    The kebab is also delicious. I tend to use beef rather than lamb as I can't get under 5% lamb anywhere. The beef can be a bit dry so I tend to use low fat yoghurt,garlic and lemon juice to make a syn free topping which takes away the dryness!

    Oh dear, well I did so well for a week of my diet and then family came down for a week then star week after that so the last two weeks have been pretty bad.
    So I am back to it today. I have just weighed myself and I am still 10 stone 11.5 which is what I was at the start of the diet three weeks ago.
    I am pretty gutted as I had gone to 10 stone 3 after dieting the original time between Christmas and May.:sigh:
    But I have 2 weeks off work now which will make dieting easier as I can plan my meals and I am making my first mini target to reach 10 stone 5 by 29 August. So 2 weeks to lose 6.5 pounds!!
