Sophie's Journey

I thought I'd start a diary so I can keep track of all my weight loss.

I always had 'puppy fat' as a child but managed to lose some of it by the time I'd reached the age of 14. I was a size 14 but looked pretty good. I began my first long-term relationship when I'd just turned 14 and by the time I was 16 I became very depressed and lost all my self confidence and started putting on a lot of weight because I'd sit around all day and eat junk. Most of my meals were either takeaways or restaurants and obviously I kept getting bigger and bigger.

After 7 years, just before my 21st birthday, I split up with my first love and it hit me really hard. I couldn't eat because I was so heartbroken so I ended up going down to about 14st 10lbs (from 17st 5lbs - my heaviest weight). I felt really good about myself and 6 months later I fell in love all over again. I managed to keep my weight in check but then it started creeping back on again when I started a new job with weird hours and before I knew it I was back up to 16st 4lbs.

This is why I have decided to lose weight, get down to a healthy size and BMI and KEEP IT OFF! I know that if I carried on as I was I would've been back up to my heaviest weight again and I really don't want that.

So here goes... It's time to take control! :D

I've been Food Optimising perfectly for two weeks now and had my first bit of naughtiness tonight. My Dad and I went to Bingo and I hadn't eaten and all they serve there is junk so I had burger and chips... the only thing I'm proud of is deliberately leaving half of the chips and not having as much ketchup as I usually would - every little helps and all that!

I'm not too worried about it because I haven't been having many syns over the past few days. Lets hope my naughty nibble hasn't affected my weight loss too much!
Today's Food:

Wholemeal (HEXb) Ham Sandwich with Mustard
Burger and a few chips (no idea of the syns) :mad:
Fizzy flavoured water x2
Diet Coke x4
Week 2 weight loss: 5lbs! :D:D:D
Week 3 weight loss: 3lbs

I've had a tough week. I have eaten a bit of junk but had 3 whole days where I didn't eat anything at all because I was feeling really down. So... I'm happy that I've still managed to lose 3lbs taking me to 11lbs loss altogether. Going for the stone next week!
I didn't quite make it to the stone this week. I lost 1lb so that makes it a total of 12lbs. I can do a stone by next week definitely!
Well done on the weight loss so far! 12 pounds is fab! Keep up the good work xx
