Hello all! Well I have decided to start my diary to help me stay on track to lose this last half stone to a stone or so. It feels very self indulgent but I am not going to lie, I have been looking forward to starting one of these! A bit of background on me, I won't bore you too much, promise. I am 24, and have ALWAYS been big. I can remember going to the dietician when I was 12 and being nigh on 15 stone then, so being this weight is totally new to me. My heaviest was over 20 stone (eek!) and I got to that weight when I got into a relationship and my portion sizes went completely out of control. I had always hovered around the 17 stone mark before that, so not exactly petite! I was at this weight for a couple of months and then decided I had to do something about this before the only option open to me was a gastric band. I lost a stone on Weight Watchers last year, stopped to go on holiday back home to Australia and never really went back. Stayed at the same weight (God knows how!) and then one day in December of last year, went to my hairdresser and she had lost a massive 9 stone on Lighter Life. I looked into it, found it too expensive and then someone told me about Cambridge and I started in January. I am now down six and a half stone from the beginning of the year. Started a clothes size 20 on top, 22 on bottom and am now a 12 on top and a 14 on bottom. I don't think this last little bit will make much of a difference in clothes size, but I am going to take up jogging to tone up and build lean muscle, so hopefully I can lose the last flabby bits that way. I am now on SS+, have been since Wednesday and plan on being on it for the next couple of weeks depending on my losses. The dreaded scales haven't moved since Wednesday, so I am a bit annoyed at that but I will keep chugging along and see how it goes. I don't expect it to fly off but it would be nice to see some scale movement. So today I am having/had the following Chicken, Salad and Cucumber for tea Bar Choc Tetra Choc Shake and at least 4 litres of water as well. Off to work in the pub tonight so I hope that will burn some stubborn fat off! Am going to try to stay off the scales, hopefully I will see a couple of lbs loss by Wednesday. After all, SS+ is still well low calories! Thanks for reading my rambling, if you got this far! Hope everyone is having a great day and has some fun planned for the weekend!
