    Hope your all doing well! have been lurking around the board for a few days planning my re-re-re-re fresh start!
    Hope you still remember me? Iv tried a variety of diets since the beginning of the year (as per usual) lose a few pounds then put them back on! Also tried to stick to minimins and then getting lazy or not having the time! So basically ive been quite crap. I'm at an all time high in weight and low in self esteem and its time to turn that around. Im hoping to drop 1 stone at least by 27th September when I leave for Saudi Arabia to perform pilgrimage.

    Ive tried and failed all year so really need to make a diff in the next month and a half will appreciate all the help and encouragement I can get to stay on track and keep updating diary just to MAKE me stay on a good eating plan.

    I started my low carb eating yesterday.

    Today I have had:
    b- 2 egg omelette and mushrooms with a seek kebab
    s- chicken tikka and 1 seek kebab
    l- broccoli, celery and carrot soup with cheese
    d- chicken with a beef burger (no bun)

    Been really hungry this evening. plus TOM so that doesn't help.
    Need to start exercise but on Monday
    Will be doing daily: 100 crunches, 20 backward crunches, 20 leg lifts, 20 pushups, 20 plank twists, 20 squats.
    I am looking to start the 30 day shred again but 2-3 times a week and alternating through levels as I keep doing 5 days and then getting sick of it or lazy.

    Ive got about 8 weeks or so will tick them of in my signature as I go along to encourage myself.

    Start weight is an embarrassing 14.5 stone :-( soo unhappy with that but its my own fault.
    Ramadan is behind me now so I have no excuses.... except for my mums 60th B-day and maybe my bday where I will have a slight cheat meal but the good thing with the food we have is that you can still enjoy without eating carby food just gotta be clever about it n stick to meat based starters with salad.

    Most of this is a rant to myself.
