    Well wanted to start this today as I truly believe that this diary will be the most helpful tool in enabling me to achieve my 5 stone weight loss goal! Originally wanted to aim for a 4lbs loss each week but after speaking to some lovely people on here have since decided a 2lbs loss a week is more realistic therefore anything extra is a bonus!

    Am going to post my food/exercise log each following day so nothing to report today other than my start weight (and the last week I will ever be this weight lol!)

    Weight as at Monday 18th April:
    14stone 0pounds

    This is for myself, my gorgeous boys and my fantastic fiance xx

    Ok so yes I am one of these annoyingly impatient people who find themselves weighing each day, well today I am glad I did as I am -4lbs! Very pleased and it has made me even more motivated for the rest of the week. Although I am only counting each Monday as my official weigh in, I just felt I had to note this down somewhere for extra encouragement and motivation! Just hoping that by that time it hasn't all crept back on :-(

    Thanks Shazza, I did think about taking photos but was too worried about someone else seeing them! However I have just found an iPhone app that allows you to take private photos that are protected by a pin number! so there is no stopping me now lol! x

    Food/exercise log for Tuesday 19th April:

    Breakfast:
    Special k oats and honey with semi skimmed milk

    Mid morning:
    Granny smith apple

    Lunch:
    Tesco light choices cup of soup, one slice of granary bread and a ww vanilla yoghurt

    Mid afternoon:
    A cracker with a little grated cheese ;-)

    Dinner:
    Quorn fillet with baby new pots, brocolli, leeks, carrot and sweede mash. 1x Tescos light choices orange and carrot slice.

    Another good day I think, was so surprised at how full I felt after dinner as it wasn't a large portion. Am thinking it could be to do with the water I have drank today (alot!) or maybe the fact that I am now eating more during the day than before? Either way feeling full after such a healthy meal is such a good feeling and I just know I can keep this up now- there is no going back! Yay!! Bring on tomorrow!

    Forgot to add my exercise doh! Only 15mins workout today due to ankle pain but boy did I make the most of those 15mins! Both my ankles are particularly achy at the minute (due I think to me exercising without footwear) so I am going to give the workout a miss tomorrow I think so they have a while to rest. I will be walking to my mums tomorrow which is about 10 mins so that sort of counts!!

    Hi, yeah it's just my own- looking at it as more of a lifestyle change than a diet which is very exciting and scary at the same time! Yes I agree exercise is the key and just the rush you get afterwards is worth the pain alone! Will get back on it on Thursday :)

    Food exercise log for Thursday 21st April:

    No exercise today :-( due to ankle pain :-(

    Breakfast:
    Special k with semi skimmed milk

    Lunch:
    Tomato and basil cup of soup

    Mid afternoon:
    Cheese and cracker

    Dinner:
    Quorn fillet, baby new pots, leeks, brocolli, sprouts, carrot and sweede mash. Carrot and orange slice

    Don't really feel I have ate enough as I should have done today, purely through time not choice! Am feeling a bit low today like this is never really going to happen for me or not ad quick as I want it to. Therefore I am considering Exante, I really think I could do it as I know the results will be worth it and quick! Then I think once I get to my goal weight I can just maintain with the diet I am on now of healthy eating. Trouble is telling family and friends as I know they will all tell me not to do it but then they are not the ones with 4 stone to lose. I could possibly keep it a secret for a short while from them but not from OH. I just know he would say there is better things we could me spending money on than milkshakes lol! What he doesn't realise is that if I were able to achieve this loss then I would be a much better gf! More confident and happy and much more fun to be around. Think we will have to have a chat! Also I am unsure as to whether to get down to 13 or 12 stone first and then start exante or whether to do exante first and shift a substantial amount before going on a healthy plan? So many decisions, will have to have a long think over easter and decide what to do from here :-(

    Ashamed that I have not been on for 4 days due to easter! Well I have a 2lb loss which is ok but due to my habit of daily weigh ins that could have been a loss of 6lbs as last Thursday I weighed 13st 8lbs! Gutted as I should have maintained that over Easter but family meals and BBQs got the better of me :-( back on it today though, should be able to restart my exercise tomorrow as ankle is feeling better each day. Anyway I suppose 2lbs loss is better than nothing, time to start again and try not to think of those 4lbs I lost and put back on :-(

    you are doing really well. try not to worry about thoses 4lb cause weight can fluctuate day to day.i know its hard not too as i do the same thing so i should really take my own advice lol.a 2lb loss is still really good especially after easter family meals and bbqs. well done.
    keep going and keep positive.
