    Hello!! :D


    So, I've decided to create my own weight loss diary. :eek: I've been putting it off for a while now but I think It will help me stay on track!


    So a little about me...


    My name is Hayley, I'm 27 and I live in East Yorkshire.


    I think I started putting weight on when I left home. At home my mum always cooked. She wasn't the best cook but it was always healthy. My parents didn't drink and didn't like alcohol in the house really, so up until I left home I rarely drank. Well, when I left home it was great thinking I could eat and drink whatever I wanted, and thats where my story begins!!


    Upto now I've tried weight watchers which I really couldn't get on with and Slimming World which I :heartpump:!


    I started SW in June 2010 at 12st 9lb and by September 2010 id lost 16lb. I was so excited when I started to feel my clothes getting bigger but then I started to get complacent. I missed a few meetings and the wrong foods started to creep into my diet then xmas came and I completly lost the plot!


    I started SW again in May this year. Gutted wasn't the word when I found out that not only had I put on ALL the weight I had lost but I'd also gained another 4lb. :cry: I was so mad with myself when I thought about all the hard work I had wasted and that I'd have to start all over again. :raincloud:


    Upto now I've lost 9lb so I'm pretty pleased with myself and I know this is it. With my determination and hopefully a little support from you, :) I WILL atain the slim healthy body that's hidden under all this fat!!


    Anyway, sorry to have rambled on and on and on, I will stop now lol!
    Thanks for reading this, hopefully I haven't put you to sleep!! :snoopyhouse:

    Hi Hayley

    Your first post made me giggle regarding the alcohol :)

    You've done really well since your rejoin in May and your head is certainly in the right place.

    Good luck.

    2 slices WM bread HEXb
    Eggs and Bacon w/ fat cut off
    just remembered I also had a clementine this morning

    I knew I was out working all day so I had a big breakfast to keep me going so I wasnt tempted to stop off at a shop for nibbles!:party0051:

    Lunch
    Nothing :(

    Dinner
    Pasta with a free pasta sauce I made myself. Dont ask me whats in it because I really couldnt tell you!!

    Drinks
    Coffee w/ milk HEXa

    Syns

    Spirits are lower in syns than wine so move onto the hard stuff :)
    Only kidding - I don't wanna get blamed when you're a skinny minnie attending AA meetings :8855:

    Also with EE don't forget to have a third of your plate with superfree foods.

    How did you cope without lunch - think I would have fainted :8855:

    I know I just dont like lower syned alcohol! :cry:
    My pasta had lots of onions, mushrooms, chicken and bacon in so can I count the veg in that as part of my sf food? Im not very good at that part of the plan!

    That did make me smile re the leaving home and the alcohol bit too. I now have visions of my eldest leaving home and stocking up on booze :8855:

    You definately seem in the right frame of mind which is the biggest part.

    Goodluck, you can do this xxxxx

    Hi jackieN, thanks for visiting, I do feel in a good place at the moment and I have some things coming up later in the year that I want to be slimmer for so thats a great incentive.

    I think im coming across as a raging alcoholic lol! :7834: :D

    Not at all :) it just made me smile as actually reminded me very very much of me when I left home. It was like suddenly I didn't have to be in by a certain time, could eat what I fancied, and drink what I like :D

    Having an incentive is good . OH's work are having a do at christmas this year and I hate christmas do's when so fat so it would be lovely if I had lost enough to be brave enough to go this year :)

    Hi hayzl,

    Smiled too at the drinking after leaving home. If you swapped the alcohol for chip butties, that would be my story, too. :D
    Dad banned cooking after after 7pm, as he hated cooking smells in the evening so once I left home it dawned on me I now made my own foodie rules. I revelled in the freedom of making chip butties at midnight....night after night. :eek:

    I'm now off to look up the syns for the hard liquor. :gimi: Thanks for the tip Tilly.

    Another day another dollar! Off to work today, not a bad day but I don't like working Saturdays. No plans for this evening so hopefully there won't be any naughty food temptations! Weekends are always the hardest don't you think?

    Plan for the day, no doubt it will change!
    Breakfast: Poached eggs on WM toast HEXb
    Lunch: Ham salad w/ new potatoes
    Dinner: some sort of :turkey: dish, possible the diet coke chicken, I am in love with that at the moment!

    HEXa Milk for coffee

    Hi Crumble, sorry I missed your post last night. Thanks for poping by! I think everyone has a particular vice when it comes to food or drink! When your young and your let loose all sense flies out the window and you go mad!
    At least we can do something about it ay! :eek:

    Poor you having to work.

    Your food sounds nice today. I love seeing what other people are eating cos it gives me new meals to try :)

    Weekends are harder. I think it's because there's no set routine. You'll get through it though by thinking of how your gonna look when you see your dad in September
