Hi Everyone I am new to this forum but definately not to dieting. I am hoping that by keeping a diary for everyone to read that it will keep me on track. A bit of history about me - I was never thin nor fat growing up and never entertained dieting until 2001 - looking back now that was the worst thing I have ever done in my life. I joined WW and quickly lost 2 stone to take me to target and found it very easy until I put it back on 2 years later. Bring on SW - again lost 2 stone very easily and maintained for 4 years with no problem - then came a house move, a job change and the death of my Grandma and the weight piled back on along with another 2 stone! I have been dieting all year and am a whopping 3lbs lighter than at New Year and I am completely obsessed with anything to do with diets. I feel I need to clear my head of points, calories, syns etc as I really beat myself up if I have a bad day and it turns into a bad week/month etc (I am sure you have got the picture) anyway I have decided that I am going to try to eat healthily and exercise and hopefully not get obsessed again. I am a fan of the Paul McKenna book and think his ideas are good if only I could forget about formal dieting and just try to be heathily. Sorry to rant on my first post but already I feel better for getting all that off my chest. If anyone as any tips that will help me I would be grateful to hear them. Seeya Soon.
