Hi, I have a diary further down the page but I feel like this new start calls for a new diary At my last attempt I managed to lose 24.5lb but in the last year I've managed to put on all but 4.5 back on . I've also struggled with depression which hasn't helped and the tablets I'm on don't seem to be conducive to weightless either-great! BUT-here's my new inspiration, my reason for starting again and sticking at it this time. In recent weeks my gorgeous little nephew has been fighting leukaemia. Thankfully his treatment is going well and there's no reason why he shouldn't make a full recovery, he came home yesterday and has a lot of treatment ahead of him. The hospital and all the staff have been absolutely amazing and all the family in our own ways want to do something to fundraise and give something back. So I decided to give a pound for every lb I lose. I've not asked for sponsors, just doing it myself. DH is on board too so we are spurring each other on. So that's where I am basically. This is my first week on it and I've done pretty well. Been to the gym a few times (I love the gym!), cut out the wine, crisps, sweets and cola. My weigh in day is Tuesday so I'll see if it's paid off then. Food today is 2 scrambled eggs, 1 crumpet and some mushrooms for breakfast. Lunch is ham salad with a pitta and hummus. Got roast beef for dinner but I'm only having a couple of potatoes and piling my plate with veg. drinking lots of water today too, as last night was our night off so we had a takeaway curry and wine!
