    Calorie Counting
    Hi guys,

    I started calorie counting just over four years ago and managed to lose almost two stone in about three months the first time around.

    Then I went to uni and managed to pile every single last pound back on to my body without really even noticing.

    I've been back on CC for two weeks now and have dropped 7.5lbs already. I'm finally feeling motivated enough to actually sort my weight problem out once and for all - and I think keeping a diary will help me to genuinely evaluate what I'm doing. I'm the queen of lying to myself about portion sizes, calories, exercise, haha! :rolleyes:

    I'll update this post as the day goes on, and update my stats weekly. Hopefully, actually writing down the change will keep me on track!

    Sammii :)

    Current Stats - Start of Week 3
    (07/07/14):
    Weight: 161.5lbs (11st7.5lbs) (-7.5lbs from start)
    Height: 5'3"
    Chest: 39" (-1" from start)
    Waist: 31" (-2" from start)
    Stomach: 40.5" (-3" from start)
    Hips/bum: 44" (-0.5" from start)
    Arms: 13.5" (L); 13.5" (R) (-0.5" each from start)
    Thighs: 26" (L); 27" (R) (no change)


    Food Diary

    Breakfast
    Bran flakes and skimmed milk (200kcals)
    Apple (60kcals)
    Lunch
    Beef Broth Soup (180kcals)
    1 Slice Wholemeal Bread (110kcals)
    Dinner
    Ocean Pie (350kcals)​
    Water
    2.5 litres
    6 cups of tea with skimmed milk (90kcals)

    Exercise Diary
    30 Day Shred Level One (Day 9) (130kcals)
    Jogging - 20 mins (100kcals)

    Total Daily Net Calories:
    760kcals

    Generally would eat more than this, especially after exercising, but I've felt a little bit nauseous all day - I think my IBS is playing up again! At least I've got a little bit of a calorie buffer for later in the week now though! :p

    Welcome to Calorie Counting Forum. :wavey: Well done on the weigh loss already. I find it easier if I write everything down - if I don't I eat more than I think I have..

    Hi! Thanks for the welcome! I'm exactly the same - if I don't write it down as soon as I've eaten it, it's like my brain blocks it out! I swear that's one of the biggest reasons why I've gained weight - I could eat a chocolate bar and completely forget about it within an hour!

    Congrats on your weight loss so far! You're doing amazingly! We're the same height and we've got very similar start weights - definitely going to check your diary out for tips now! :D

    Thanks :)

    I think that's the right attitude to take. Most of us will have sts weeks through no fault of our own because bodies sometimes just do their own things. Just have to keep it in mind that staying on plan will make the scales go down eventually!

    Thanks!!

    The steak was amazing! They're half price in tesco at the moment so I've saved up calories to have a bit of a treat! So worth the days of bland food, haha!

    Congrats on your weight loss so far, you're doing so well! :D

    It looks lovely! Does the salad have peas in it though? I'm really allergic to them, which I know is a completely random allergy, haha! :p

    It's mainly inconvenient - it's not a common allergy so I have to really read ingredients! You'd be amazed how many things have pea starch or vegetable oil in them! I'm very jealous of your food though - it looks delicious, even if it would kill me, haha!

    It's really bad! I carry an epi pen, and if I eat anything a pea has touched my throat starts to close up.
