*** Rachel's Maintenance Re-Start Diary ***

Ok. So I reached target in November last year and up until about a month ago had been finding it relatively easy to maintain at a pound or two under my target. Since then I don't know what's happened and I just seem to have totally lost my SW mojo. I only have about 3/4 pounds to get back to where i'm happy but think a food diary on here will help me to find the motivation to finally lose it and keep it off.

Any comments very welcome :)

** Note to self ** Must get some variety into my diet! Lunches this week have been a pain because i'm on work experience so variety will be easier there next week but I seem to eat similar things at the same time. Must remember to vary things a bit!
haha posts crossed! Yes I do. Got loads of great recipes for main meals for dinner that I love and eat varied all the time because I cook with my mum but lunches and snacks are a nightmare!

Ok so the weekend was a tad of a disaster. Friday and Saturday ate and drank copious amounts as my parents took me out on Friday for a posh 5 course meal and them my boyfriend took me out on Saturday as a treat after my exam results. Was good on Sunday and kept a diary on paper but then today my best friend took me out for afternoon tea so there was no SW friendly alternative at all! This morning I was showing a 1lb gain which to be honest i'm pretty pleased with. I did do a 4 mile run yesterday and then power pilates today though. Anyway, i'm back on the wagon as of now and (other than the afternoon tea of course) haven't lost control today so feeling oddly pleased xxx
Thanks :). I was pretty amazed to be honest, wasn't expecting it at all! Anyway on with the plan today and am back to where I was after my indulgent weekend!
