    Hello everyone. This is my first diary so I hope you all like it. Im hoping this will help keep me on track!

    A little bit about me. Im a SAHM to 2 girls. I start College in September and I want to be slim and confidant not shy and frumpy so I started sw on 1st July at 14stone and a size 16. I am currently 13 st 4lbs and a size 14. I can't wait to get into the 12 stones only 5lbs to go!

    Last year I lost a lot of weight (about 2 1/2 stone) by calorie counting and then I did a mixture of calorie counting and the fast diet. It worked but then I piled all the weight back on over winter :( Im hoping by following slimming world I can keep it all off this time!

    One thing I hate is exercising but I am going to get myself a bike and im thinking that that will be some good exercise for me and the kids will be able to join in then too.

    So know you know a little about me I will start on the food diary!

    Today is a red day.

    BREAKFAST: quorn sausages, roasted red onion, roasted tomatoes and scambled egg

    Hi Danielle, here to sub, food looks great so far.
    I'm similar height and weight - lost nearly 20 lbs last year, but piled most of it back on over winter thru comfort eating/drinking and lack of exercise. Still having trouble getting re-motivated, so will pop back here for inspiration! :)

    Im really excited I think its going to be fab! How old are your kids? Mine are 2 and 7.
    I dont really do many green days but I definitely find I lose more doing a few red days rather then all EE.
