    Hello all fellow dieters,

    hmmm introduce myself, i'm not very good at this typing malarcy but here goes

    My name is Paul aged 33 i am now into my second week of my new diet plan seams to be going really good, but after struggling for a few years now i am weel used to it starting good and ending just as fast.

    9 days ago i was 15st and 9lbs
    I hit the scales on monday morning and never get on until the following monday.
    On monday gone the 18th i was 14st 13lb

    my diet used to be lots of pasta dishes and random pizza/kebab nights and weekend beers

    My new diet is 1 meal a day plus snacks
    the meal is a big salad and snacks are anything from the fruitbowl

    I also started jogging 3 times a week 4 miles or 6.5k i like to say 6.5k it sounds longer :)

    well guess i have rambled on more than i thought, hope I haven't did this in the wrong place im not very good with internet sites.

    Hi Paul, Welcome to the forum.
    What a fab start to your dieting days... (makes me want to spit!! .. :D) Typical tho' as men always lose their weight a lot quicker so stick to it and you will soon be to your goal weight.
    However, having said that.. it is not really reccomended having one meal a day and especially as you are doing a lot of exercise. No doubt that is why you find it hard to keep it going. Better to have even just two medium sized meals a day and perhaps a protein drink as well.
    You don't say what height you are so 14st may well be a good weight for you..Have you looked online to see what your correct weight should be? ....Worth checking out perhaps?

    Take care .... :)
