Hi, i think keeping a diary will really help me so here goes, well i have been big all my life, well insce i can remember, i was 10lb born so i guess it has been all my life lol i have been through it all being a fat child bullying, starving myself, depression, self harm, counselling etc etc. When i was 15 and around 14 stone, i got together with my partner, we had known each other since we were 11, my confidence soared, i didn’t think anyone would want me being like that. When i was 18 i was around 15 stone, i decided i wanted to lose weight, in a month a lost a stone, and then i got a big shock, i was pregnant, i was elated, young yes but we were both sooo happy, my pregnancy went fine, and the birth went fine, painful but the most amazing experience i have every had. After all of the hype of a newborn died down a bit, i looked at some photos and noticed a difference, i faced the scales and to my shock i saw 18 stone, i kind of forgot about it and being so busy with the baby i ate whatever i could get my hands on whenever i had time. 2 years later i faced the scales again 20st 10lbs, how could i have got to that, this was last November, i joined this site and started to lose weight with healthy eating and excercise. In 2 months i went down to 18st 13lbs. Then xmas and my 21st birthday came and started binging again and eating crap. At this moment i am 19st 13lbs and i am back to it again. I now have 2 incentives, my partner proposed on valentines day and we hope to get married in 2012, i don’t want to be a fat bride. We have been trying for another baby for a year and i think my weight is holding me back.
Anyway i will be logging my food and my feelings and also when it goes wrong as sometimes it does.

Hi Assj,

Just wanted to wish you good luck! You sound very determined and I'm sure will succeed.
I can so relate to the baby weight and after baby weight. ;) With both of my pregnancies I put considerable weight on and more after births! All the hype about losing weight while breastfeeding and caring for your baby/toddler just wasn't true for me. I remember being so tired all the time that any food any time of the day would do just to keep the sanity.

Anyway keep at it and keep us posted.

i am doing really well havent posted for a couple of days as my internet had been cut off due to some problems, but i am back today and will be posting my food diary later, i am going to be weighing in on friday and will post my loss too. it is my oh's birthday tomorrow so we will be going out for a meal eeeekk lol i have just about every restaurants nutrition page in my favorites though so should be okay lol.

i am half wondering whether to give myself one day every couple of weeks to have what i want and loosen up, atm i am getting low cal crisps and choc and stuff and eating it most days, now i am thinking if i am stricter every day and dont have any stuff like that, then one day every 2 weeks i can have that stuff and maybe a takeaway for dinner and a drink, etc. i think it will help keep me sane and the strict days will hopefully give me a better loss on m weigh in days.

yesterday's menu was.

B: Go head yogurt breaks (just one biscuit)
L: crumpets with low fat butter
Mid aft: 1 piece wholemeal toast with low fat butter
D: extra lean Minced beef and spinach in wholemeal pittas.
Snacks: Small yazoo choc milkshake, Muller light yogurt.

Weighed in today, and lost 1.2lb in just a couple of days, so really glad.

Tonight is going to be a true test as my other half will be at work so thats when i get bored and usually eat loads of crap, hopefuly tonight i wont.

Hi Assj

Welcome to the board and have just caught up on your diary :) I love a good weeding me hehehehe i can help! :) im a newlywed six months

The thing about eating bad on one day, you need to try make sure it doesnt go to two to three, im one of the people who have been doing this type of diet for the last few weeks and sticking to weekend eating only and cambridge on weekend and i was pretyt strict, but i went on holidays and have prob put on a few pounds.....will know at WI tomorrow hehehe

Either way , i say do it how you feel it will suit you best, only you know yourself your motivation and how you can yeild to temptation, there is no right or wrong way per se, you just need to find 'the way' for you and stick to it.

Keep up the good work and well done on the 1.5 loss! :)

hey thanks for your message, yeah i sent an application to prestwood but not heard anything as of yet.
My eating plan seems to have gone haywire again! ggrrr its sooo annoying, last year when i started in september, i stuck to it religiously and benefited and saw the results, but since xmas (dreaded time for dieters gr) i keep starting but cant stick to anything. doing my head in now. I think i am stressed aswell which could be why its so hard so i have started taking kalms today hopefully its going to mellow me out and let me think a bit more about what i chose to put in my mouth. As some days are just such a blur i dont really know what i am eating. So i took the first 2 tabs this morning and going to take some more now. They worked for my driving lessons and test so hope they will help with this.

ahem i am back and with a slimfast vengance lol
doing very well so far have been on plan for a week and had my first weigh in this morning with a 8.6lb loss EEK! i am ecstatic about it, it is only working though because i am being totally strict and trying to change my mind set as well as my eating habbits and i think the 3 litres of water a day i consume has some part in it aswell. this week i am going to introduce excersize aswell so hoping the losses flow and i can be a bit more comfy on the plane to tunisia on 26th sept lol i will try my best to keep a food diary too to help me keep on track and hopfully help others.

B: slimfast choc shake
L: weight watchers hearty vegetable soup
D: 4x mini chicken breast fillets, 3 boiled jersey royal potatoes.

that'll be all from me :)
