Well, this is my all new weight loss diary....which is needed LOTS at the minute!

I started SW over 3 months ago now, and I've fallen off the wagon BIG stylee...I really need to get back on track but I've been struggling a lot for the past two weeks, putting on 4lbs and just not feeling motivated to stick to plan.

I did have a food diary, but I think it's time that I draw a line under it, and don't look back on the past two weeks and get back on plan from tomorrow.

I really need to do this. I feel like a complete barrel after all of the food and drink I have consumed recently. I know it's gonna be hard to get back and stay on the straight and narrow, but after today I am determined to do it!

I don't go to group, but wouldn't say I go it alone as everyone on this site is amazing help. I usually WI on a Sat morning, but have decided that I'm restarting from tomorrow, so Friday will now be my officially WI day from now on.

I'm super excited to get back on track and hope these lbs will melt away. I really want to get to target (I want to be 9st and I'm currently around the 10st mark) as soon as possible. I know SW if for life and not a "quick fix" but I want to be slim so bad it's unreal (think it's cos most of my mate are super skinny...and the fact my Dad keeps saying I'm over weight!!)...so...here we go...tomorrow is day 1 of my SW restart..wish me luck :)...there's no looking back now!!!

Sunday 8 August 2010

I had a great night last night. I was quite good with food & drink at my friends house, so synning the night at 40 syns :) still hungover today. We had a lovely celebration for my friends 22nd and an engagement of my other friend. Made me feel all lonely and pathetic, being the only single gal there. Sigh.

So kinda went off plan last night. And I stayed at my friends so kinda off plan today. Her Dad made me quorn sausage, egg and toast for brekki and she's having her birthday Indians later which we are all invited for. Don't know whether to pass or go.

Hi there!

Well done on getting back to plan! I have only been doing this for a few weeks but currently doing EE, might try some red and green days so your plans really help, thank you!

Glad you are feeling better today and that you are looking forward to going to the gym.... MMmmmm dont think I will EVER say that! Not been to a gym for a long long time and do need to increase/start exercising, been thinking about getting a Wii :rolleyes:

Anyway, have a good day and "enjoy" the gym :D

Hope you enjoyed the gym and good luck on restarting the plan. Keep posting as it is dead helpful to read about you and what you're doing. Loads more people read this and don't post back so you may have a following in cyber space:D:D:D!
C: 10st11lb G: 9st4lb
Thanks guys :)

Well, didn't end up going to the gym. Had all my stuff at work with me to walk down the bank to the work gym, then at 4:30 it absolutely chucked it down with rain. And I didn't wanna get soaked as I had no coat or brolly...so I came home. Considering going on my own home cross trainer later, but off to Asda to pick up some food, then to Uncle's to type up a report for him. So if I get time, I WILL exercise, if not, I'll defo go to the gym tomorrow!

Had a random day today. Been sooo quiet at work, done hardly anything but had a good catch up with some of the high up staff :) and also bought more stuff for my Mam's 50th. I've officially spent faaarrr too much on her, and am in my overdraft and have had to increase it from £200 to £350...she better appreciate it!

Been considering my future a lot these past couple of days. I know I'm bored of my job. It's not what I want to do, there's no challenge and I love something to get my teeth into. I've applied for loads of jobs but I'm not sure what exactly it is I want to do. I've always had office jobs. I loved being a legal secretary, found law soo interesting, but it's hard to get back into as nowhere has any vacancies. My first love is travel/tourism/aviation/airports...but even that's hard to get into without qualifications. So I've been looking at the UK Open College's website...they do a travel and tourism course that you can do from home (kind like the Open Uni)...and was thinking about maybe doing that when I get some money behind me. I really want to progress and do something I love. Right now, I don't dislike work, it's just....nothing. All I seem to do is photocopy, file and make teas and coffees....a long way away from the responsibilities I used to have. So now I have decisions to make...

Friday 13 August 2010

Eekk Friday 13th! I should honestly not go out today, I'm accident prone enough on a normal day - I should be wrapped up in bubble wrap! I'm don't particularly buy into the whole 'Friday the 13th' thing but even people I work with are teasing me. I hate being so accident prone!!

Friday at last though - cannot wait for a lie in tomorrow. This week has been sooooo long. Roll on 4pm. Was going to try for a half day cos I feel rubbish - got a headache and feel all achey. Hope I'm not coming down with something!

Dunno if I'm going to gym tonight. Got my stuff with me but it's raining again and if I feel this rubbish later, I won't want to go. We'll see. Supposed to be going out for my friends birthday tonight. Just to the pub, where I wouldn't be drinking, but even considering giving this a miss (mainly cos I am super skint - anyone know how to make some money fast? I've got the lottery on!) and just popping round to my Auntie's to see my cousins new puppy. Guess I'll decide all of this later. I really need to be a recluse this month. I'm waayy into my overdraft already with all the presents I've been buying, and I've got to have about £100 to go to London at the end of the month, so the best thing for me is to stay in now and save money, not spend...roll on pay day!!

Anyhoo, I WI this morning. I lost 1lb. Which I am actually really chuffed with. Chuffed because I drank loads on Sat night, and had an indians and crisps and crap on Sunday, and it's * week (almost TOTM..maybe thats why I'm feeling so rubbish?!) yet I still managed to pull it back to lose 1lb. So I'm happy with myself for now :)

Green day today. Really enjoying green days again as you can see! Prior to my restart, I did lots of EE days which I did enjoy, but it's nice to have a bit of green :)

Breakfast: 28g of Special K Sustain (HEB) with Milk (Part HEA) and 1 Banana and Custard Mullerlight

Lunch: 28g of Special K Sustain (HEB) with 1 Raspberry & Cranberry Mullerlight, Blueberries, Raspberries & Strawberries

Dinner: Smash Pizza using Smash, Passata, LCEL Cheese Triangles (HEA), Peppers, Tomatoes, Onion & Garlic with 42g of Chips (4 Syns) and a Jacket Potato with 1 tsp of Margarine (1 Syn) and 2 LCEL Cheese Triangles (2 Syns)

Drinks: 2 Cups of Tea with Milk (Part HEA), 4 Pints of Water with NAS Squash, 1 Can of Diet Orange Fizz, 1 Diet Coke

Snacks: 2 Mikados (1 Syn) and 2 Chocolate Mini Meringues (7 Syns)

Syns: 15

Well done on the loss! Bet it's given you a boost for this week :)

Good luck with today. That whole Friday the 13th thing is nothing to be worried about. And I hope you feel better!!! *hugs*

In my case however, it is, as I'm out for lunch with my Aunty (something I totally forgot about) and then I'm throwing a picnic style evening for my friend's birthday...I'm trying today make it as SW friendly as possible, but with tortilla chips and cake, I think it's going to be hard! Though I'm off to the gym this morning (maybe it will counter-act it!)

I'll try to pull it back, I really need a good loss to counter-act last week's gain...

I'm probably going to follow suit and give more red and green days a try. I'm not entirely sure EE is for me, though it's great for those days where you need flexibility.

Essay over - hope the accident-free day goes quickly for you and have a wonderful and restful weekend!

Well done on your loss :happy096:

Hope you feel better as the day goes on. Pouring down here and it is sooooo depressingly dark I also wish it was 4pm and I was on my way home :rolleyes:

Hope you feel well enough to go out tonight but know what you mean about being skint!
C: 10st11lb G: 9st4lb
Thanks both of you :) I'm still flying high off my 1lb loss on * week! It's unheard of for me!! Especially after my boozey Saturday and my Indian filled Sunday!

Still raining so missing the gym. Still haven't decided whether to go to the pub for my friends birthday. On one hand I feel really guilty and want to go because there's only 4, possibly 5 of us out and she missed her 21st with us last year because we were at a different 21st party, so this year we were supposed to make up for it. On the other hand I still have a busting headache and I'm tired and still skint (lol)...dunno what to do! Going to Auntie's to visit Lilly-pup at half 7/8ish...so I suppose I could get ready first, go visit puppy then go to the pub for a few hours. Ugh. I really cannot be bothered but I know once I get out I'll have fun..hmm....

Saturday 14 August 2010

Happy Weekend everyone :) sooo happy! Had a long lie in this morning and feel good!

Did go out last night for an hour or so. Felt bad about missing my friends birthday night out so popped up with another friend. Stayed on the diet coke though. Very proud of myself! Also feel a sense of closure. The guy I knew that was going to be there was there. And I'm still not talking to him after the whole situation that went on (I know I'm not being specific but don't want to think about it all again!). I've done amazingly well cutting him out of my life and not speaking to him. It's a shame cos he was a good friend. But friends don't do that to friends. I completely avoided him. He did come over to talk to my group but he didn't look/speak/anything to me, so I think he gets the picture :) and I'm glad. I thought it would hurt more, but actually, it was okay. A bit awkward because when he came over I just quite simply couldn't even look at him. He caught my eye once at the bar but I just looked away. I'm happy. Maybe it means I'm finally over it all! Woo! And it was nice seeing my friends, even in their drunken state :) first time I've been sober in the pub for a while...it was odd!!

Quiet weekend for me I think. Going to do bits and bobs in the house today, maybe some exercise...quiet night in watching DVDs tonight.

Another green day today :)

Breakfast: 28g of Special K Sustain (HEB) with Milk (Part HEA) and 1 Mandarin Mullerlight

Lunch: 28g of Special K Sustain (HEB) with 1 Cherry Mullerlight and some Blueberries and Raspberries

Dinner: SW Classis Chicken Curry from the SW Curry Heaven Book, but using Quorn Chicken with Tinned Tomatoes, Tomatoes, Pepper, Garlic, Onion & Spices. With some SW Chips, 2 tbsps of rice. With 2 WW Malted Danish (5 Syns) with LCEL Cheese Triangles (HEA) and Garlic made into Garlic Bread :)...STUFFED! It was LUSH :D

Snacks: Ham Slices (2 Syns), 2 Belgian Choc Mini Meringues (7 Syns), 2 Mikados (1 Syn) and a tub of Onken FF Natural Yogurt with Sweetener

Drinks: Tea with Milk (Part HEA), 1 Can of Diet Orange Fizz and Water

Syns: 15

Feel like I've been a total pig today. I've really enjoyed my food though. Always seem to eat more at the weekends cos i'm at home with not much to keep me occupied!
