    Hi all...
    I am new to this forum and as I am determined to lose weight after so many times I have done "THE DIET"... and lost my will..

    Firstly my name is Nikki... 33 years old and 5ft 7.
    At the moment I am weghing in at 15 st:cry:

    soooo... I decided to do a diary as this forum has made me even more determined to fight my flab!:eek:

    I started to put a lot of weight on after I lost my 6 year old son in 2005.. wont go into detail but it was sudden and very tradgic. To then I drank 3 bottles of wine a night and ate and ate ( the tablets the doc put me on did not help) they made me want to eat:(

    anyway... after a year since my son passed I was up to nearly 20 stone.. heaviest I have ever been.

    I decided I needed to lose weight and after stopping drinking ( not touced a drop in over 4 and a half years) I lost some weight.. then got pregnant twice (everytime I started a diet!:eek:)...

    sooo now I am totally devoted to losing weight and I am now 15 stones I am proud that I lost what I have but want to lose a lot more and would love to make new friends on my weight journey!!!

    so thats the low down on me..and I shall be doing my diary daily!

    And nice to meet you all!!!!:eek:

    Hey Nikki, 5 stone lost you must be so proud :) you're moving even closer to your ideal weight every day now by the sounds of things. One thing though try to have low calorie foods like fruit or something in your house so you can eat if you fancy eating, your comment about nothing else passing your mouth sounds like hard work, and if you had very low calorie snacks you probabally could eat if you wanted to :)

    From reading your posts you sound like you're eating very healthy. Bet you're feeling good for it, even aside from your great weight loss! Also well done on stopping drinking alcohol too :) sky's the limit now!

    Well done on losing 5st Willowniven, thats an amazing achievement in itself. You sound very positive despite all the awful things you have been through, im sure you will get the better of your weight, and you are halfway there anyway which is fantastic.

    Good luck with it, will look forward to reading your updates!

    30 mins of low impact for 30 mins
    and an hour on my walking machine
    so all in all it burns over 1200.. wth!!!! when I checked my diary it said I had earnt over 1200 extra calories becuase of my exercise!! dam I couldnt eat anything else! so we will see how it goes...

    breakfast : small bowl special k skimmed milk, apple and a banana.. ww yoghurt
    green tea
    water
    xenical

    lunch will be : 1 tin of drained tuna..red onion, cucumber, tomato, red pepper with a tiny bit of low fat ceaser dressing.
    apple and a ww yoghurt..xenical

    tea will be: chicken breast.. teryaki marinade.. small baked potato.. and salad.. with fruit after...xenical

    Hiya Willow!
    Nice to see its all coming along well. Shame about the disappointing weigh in but I think you have found out why! I love Myfitnesspal too, its my best friend at the moment I swear. I find it really helps regulate when and what you should be eating, and its so handy how it has a lot of normal branded english foods on it. When I first got it I thought It would all be American.
    Good luck! And fingers crossed for next WI, I bet its massive.
