    Ok. It's day 0. Tonight I'm joining SW, and starting my C25k. I'm also taking on the water challenge to drink 2l per day. I'm hoping that by starting all three things together I'll have far more likelihood of succeeding in at least one of them! That may be a negative way to look at it, so on the flip side, if I succeed at all three I will be slimmer, healthier and have better skin very soon. Here's hoping!

    So, why am I doing this? Well, I've been overweight since my early twenties, and every year or so I go on a diet and lose a few pounds, then it creeps back on again. Up until my early twenties I was a skinny Minnie. So I have the feeling soooo many people understand. I'm a thin girl stuck inside a fat girls body! But I've also started to realise that the only person who can do anything about that is ME. And by joining a SW group and keeping a diary on here, I'm hoping for some positive peer pressure to keep me on track.

    So, day 0 and I don't actually even know what I weigh yet, but I have seven hours in the car today, and five hours in meetings, so I'd better go!

    I did it! First achievement today... I joined SW! And I stayed to group, which I'm very impressed at myself for. So well done me.

    Oh, and it provided the all important starting weight..... 12st 3lb. Seriously, that's not a weight I want to be, so, here goes nothing!

    Well done for joining Charmel!! That's the hard part!!! Looks like you've not eaten a lot today though - id be starving (but hey I'm greedy!!!) I never thought this diet would work because you can eat so much but it's completely changed my outlook on food!! Don't deprive yourself too much and massive good luck vibes coming your way!!!

    Thank you! You make a good point on what I've eaten... Joined last night and haven't been food shopping yet so need to get sorted with some meal plans! I'm shopping tomorrow after work, so hopefully will improve a bit then.

    Quick update on C25k too... Just back from W1D1! Soooooo proud of myself for doing it, but have to admit it was harder than I'd expected. I'm seriously unfit :-(

    C25k W1D2 done! Very proud, as I didn't want to go. My legs were still hurting from first time and it's really windy. But I did it! Yay me!

    Hmmm, bit miffed really. Had a sneaky mid-week WI (I know!) and have only lost 1lb, and DH has gained 1lb. Seriously not fair! It is our first week, and we have stuck 100% to plan.

    Need to pick ourselves up now. Both sat here feeling a bit angry.

    Don't get angry! It's happened to me before and by end of week at actual WI I've lost! Mid week WI are not good (I still do it though! Lol!) stick to plan and I'm sure you'll find a bigger loss xx

    Thank you for the kind words! We are having a good chat about it, and know we were really foolish doing it midweek (and straight after a huge chilli and fruit salad) but it's still soooo disappointing on our first week. Especially for hubby.

    Anyway, we are sticking with it, and will not be foolish enough to try midweek WIs again :-(
