    Well hello!

    I've decided to start a diary here to record my progress and more importantly, be held accountable. I am sick of starting 'diets' or calorie counting, following it for 6 days and the going out of control.

    I lost a lot of weight 5 years ago, from 14st 7ish to about 10st. I have managed to maintain pretty well but over the past year I've crept back up to nearer 11st and I really need to get a handle on this now before I really start to spiral. I was never 100% happy with the 10st, I have tried for years to get down to 9st 7 and a few times made it there, but always shot back up again. For now I'd be happy just with the 10st again.

    Anyway...I have no excuses anymore. I no longer work in an office (constant cakes, chocolate, biscuits to avoid) and can have all my meals at home. I am currently studying in a different city to where my BF works so I'm not doing that relationship thing of eating out a lot and large cosy meals in together (although I think that's what got me to this point).

    So, I will be calorie counting with exercise and a focus on healthy foods. I need to cut down on diet coke, mullerlights and those artificial low calories hot chocolates, I swear I could get through about 5 sachets a day.

    My start weight is 10st 10.

    Here goes!

    Thank you!

    Well Day 1 is done and went quite well...

    B: oats so simple (addicted to these) + yoghurt
    L: chips using a baked potato the SW way + roasted broccoli, garlic and cauliflower with a bit of low fat cheddar sprinkled on the chips - lush!
    D: had to be quick so had covent garden soup, the meatball and pasta one

    S: options hot choc x2

    I also managed a little 2 mile run.

    Total cals today: 1,216

    Amazing considering I feel like I've had loads. Might have something else later if I'm hungry as due to the run my total allowed for today was 1,515.
