    I'm on day 3 of the healthy eating plan.Going well but i have decided not to even go near the scales.I will go on my last weigh-in and take it from there.I get too obsessed about numbers and i think thats where i am going wrong.I am just concentrating on eating healthy foods,and feeling good about myself.I walk about an hour aday,and when i feel fitter i will start at the gym to boost the weightloss.Hope you are all doing well i will stick at it :)

    Well done on keeping at it. The scales is the divil for me too, it can really dictate how I feel about myself and lead me to making stupid food choices. The only time I find it benefits is when I feel I've had a gain and the reality check is useful. I hope you are enjoying eating good food. :D

    Hey - how are you getting on?
    Don't not do it just because Christmas is coming up - that's an even better reason! We all tend to put on a pound or several - if you just choose something healthier a few times, you are reducing the amount of weight you have to tackle in January.... I'd rather have to lose an extra couple of lb than 7, which is what I put on last year over Christmas!
    So stick with it - this is the best time of year to do it!

    hello,well things where going well until one of the customers at work brought in some ferrero rochers as a late christmas present.It was a big box and i shared them with a workmate,even so i could of kicked myself.Then everything was shovelled into my mouth :'( Today is a brand new day,and i have been good so far having tomatoes on toast,and 3 weetabix with a sliced banana.I am feeling a little hungry,and i need to go shopping for some healthy snacks instead of sneakin anymore bread.I have been suffering from bad headaches and i am sure its because of my rubbish diet so i really need to stick to this.I have walked 20mins this morning with the dog and will do the same in a couple of hours.Turkey tikka for tea with vegetables,will be ready for it,back soon :)

    Day 2,yesterday went well.Got 30mins walking in this morning before it rained :).Went to Morrissons and got some healthy foods loads of muller yoghurts.After putting the shopping away i had 2 eat smart hot cross buns with half a banana in each one and a unsweetened cappuccino, but i put hermasetas in.Bought some WW desserts after reading one of them is 180 cals,so really they WILL be a treat.Back later :)Went for a well earned sleep, up early.Just polished off a eat smart lasagne and some salad,rather satisfied.At least i have some yoghurts to fall back on if i need a sweet cravin' :)

    Here we are another day.Felt hungry about 9.30 last night so i had a small apple and an apricot yoghurt,i did'nt want to give in to bread.I think i will have some porridge this morning made with mostly water the cool down with skimmed milk and i have hermasetas for the sweetness.Think i will get some more salad stuffs today, enjoyed it last night, although not had salad in a long time.I plan to get in a walk in sometime today,just hope the weather improves,back later.In the end did'nt fancy porridge,so i had some scrambled egg on toast,no butter and skimmed milk.Need to get my ass movin.Sunday is the only lie-in i get so i tend to be lazy,will have to change :/

    Another good day yesterday :)Teatime,I ended up having a large ham salad with reduced fat coleslaw and some crushed pineapples with a vanilla yoghurt.Just come back with the dog and walked 35mins listening to some pumpin' sounds.Rather hungry so had some brown toast with tinned spaghetti and a handful of reduced fat cheese,no butter:)Had another 30mins in the park with the dog.Before i left i put some stewing beef in the oven with some mushrooms,garlic and leeks and oxo.The smell when i walked in the house was devine.Thickened it with granules and had some broccli and sweetcorn.Still have some pineapple left from last night so if i feel peckish later will have that :)

    Thanks Ammeh,I am just going from when i got weighed about a week ago and perhaps once a month get weighed.Like you said you can tell by your clothes and even in myself not feeling bloated and uncomfortable due to overeating :( Thinking of starting the gym again tomorrow.I do enjoy it when i get into it,will start off gently.I do walk the dog an hour a day,so it's really sorting the willpower out :/
