    Hi, so after being on many different diets, for as long as I can remember, I have decided to join a local slimming world group (along with my mum and aunty) in the hopes of losing a fair bit of weight, and getting my confidence back.

    I'm Jess, and 24, living with my partner and 2 girls. I have just had my youngest who is now 5 weeks old, she was born via C-section, but 1.5 weeks after I developed necrotizing fascitis and was rushed for emergancy surgery to remove it before it spread any further. I was stuck in hospital for 12 days, which was hard, and am attatched to a machine thats making the big hole in my tummy close up. But in the 4 weeks, from having the baby and the day I came out of hospital, I had managed to lose 30lbs! This spurred me on to want to lose more, aswell as the fact I have a deformed looking tummy, so hoping that losing more weight will improve the overall look.

    I am hoping that by keeping this diary, recording what I am eating, and just having a place to come and moan, will all enable me the best weightloss success.

    So my starting weight as of 16th April is 22 stone bang on. I came home and spent a good hour reading the booklets, and creating a weekly food plan, ready to go shopping the next day. I feel if I am more organised in planning my meals, then I will be less likely to cheat or fail somewhere. I've also taken photos of myself, and will continue to do so every 3 weeks, so fingers crossed there will be a noticeable difference.

    I know this will be a long journey, but I feel like now is the time I make big changes!

    Day 1

    Very hectic, as had planned a big shopping trip to get all my food for the week, but we never ended up going until 4pm. Also was driving around trying to find a chemist who had some dressings I needed for my hole in my tummy (district nurses come out every 3 days and change it, and they needed the bits at my house ready for sunday)

    Breakfast: Scrambeled egg (2 eggs) made with a bit of water and some baked beans

    Lunch: Nothing as was too busy

    Dinner: 2 Quorn peppered steaks with a tomato mugshot, cucumber and sweetcorn

    Snack: Orange chocolate muller yoghurt with strawberries and kiwi

    HEA: 250mls of semi-skimmed milk

    HEB: Never got this in, as was planning to use at lunch

    Syns: Half a kinder egg suprise = 3

    So for some reason nonw of my photos have worked... Ill try and go back and edit those, see if I can get them in again.
    ETA: Think its because I dont have enough posts maybe. Will have to keep posting, and add when I can... would like this a visual diary!

    So it's easter... I was given a massive box of malteasers and a lion easter egg.... still resisted and havent touched I dont plan to either, despite BF's brother teasing me and my oldest daughter kept asking me do I want some. Boyfriend can have the lion one, and Ill keep the malteasers for when I want a chocolate fix and use my syns.

    Been making some good meals these last few days. I think when you find one that works, it really spurs you on to keep going.

    Thank you... Im not sure.. I'll just keep going and see what info pops up at the top.

    Had a lie in today so totally missed breakfast, not good. Nipped into Tesco, and managed to get the fry light garlic for £2 a bottle, so picked up two. Also found the old alpen light bars (70 cals) 2 boxes for £3 so picked up 4 boxes. Never actually tried them before, but know I can have either 1 or 2 as my HEB, or just 1 and it will count as a speed food. So about to tuck into one of them now, see what all this fuss is about on the cherry bakewell flavour! Will update later with my daily food diary.

    Starting to wonder if im eating too many carbs, or over eating so wonder how the WI will go tomorrow. Im hoping for a good 4lbs lost, but not sure if that is optimistic or realistic. Will be attempting to make homemade onion bhajis later to accompany my dinner. Will also try and write out a new weekly food plan ready for shopping on thursday. Hoping to try fanta chicken and rice, and maybe some quorn and rice stuffed peppers. Think I need to find some variety in my healthy extra B, as all I use for it, is porriage oats or bread!

    First WI tonight at 7.30pm... really hoping that I have done well! TBH I think I will be disappointed if I only lose 1 or 2lbs, even though I know thats still a good loss... just feel ive done so well this week and eaten lots more fruit and veg them normal. Only time will tell. I am also taking in my homemade onion bhajis for everyone to try... I have yet to try them as not sure on this whole chickpea thing. I never got round to making mushy pea curry in the end, so made a quick stir fry with whatever was in the fridge and cupboard, was really tasty so deffo going to do it this coming week with some courgette or something thrown in.

    I also have another insentive for losing weight. I have brought a baby carrier for the baby, and im not sure if it will fit me just yet. I love the design of it, and would love to babywear but never feel confident because of my size, so sticking to SW should give me with confidence to wear it with pride and not worry.

    So I did so much better then I thought... lost 6.5lbs! So happy :D... Just goes to show if you do stick to it, and make sure you get your super free in then it can work. I lost the most in my group tonight, but because its my first never got SOTW... so thats what Im gonna try and go for next week, as well as my 1/2 stone award.

    Came back and wrote my meal plan out for the week. Includes baked bean lasagna, stuffed peppers and a chow mein for dinner. As well as attempting my first soup... curried parsnip (only seem right when parsnips are in aldis super 6)
