Dear Diary, My name is Jodie, I'm a vegetarian, and I'm fat. I have always been the not fat - but not skinny girl. Through my late teenage years (16-18yrs) I struggled to be happy with my 5ft6 and 11 stone body, this resulted in many weeks of starving myself, making myself sick, and crying myself to sleep. I had always been sporty - badminton, horse riding and rowing. Which I all stopped to stay focused on my a-levels, this and the new boyfriend - who eats nothing but crap, yet somehow keeps a six pack!? - made the weight pile on. When my boyfriend and I first got together I weighed 13st, 3 and a half years later I have piled on 4 stone. "but your vegetarian" I hear you say... Yes a diet of carbs and a wide variety of cheeses. I previously did weight watchers - started at 16st9 in jan and dropped to 14st7lbs in time for my sister in laws wedding in April. None of the less I put more on, and here I am doing exante. I have a hen do in June and I made it my goal to get down to 14st. I know - 38 days to go, to lose currently 36lbs, call me crazy! I started exante on the 1st may 2014 and have currently lost half a stone, but i am finding it challenging. I have started the diary to keep me on track, monitor my process and keep me inspired. I will be aiming to post once a day, so we will see how this goes! Wish me luck!
