    This is going to be my weight loss diary. I have never really tried to diet before, just always buried my head in the sand :-(
    Tipping point was this week, noticing the Size 20 work trousers are now too tight.
    So, Slimming world it is. I love food and am lazy and don't really cook much but have the help of my husband who does love cooking!
    Its our 10 year anniversary Sept 2015 and I would love to be the size I was when I meet him, Size 10.
    I have been given print outs of the syns, healthy extra and free foods. I can't commit to group because of work and Online is a tad expensive at the moment for me. So going it alone.

    So here goes with my food from my first day yesterday and today.

    I first weighed myself last Saturday, need to use the Wii as scales not working. Came in at 15st7lb. Have been eating healthy all week and started the plan on Friday. Weighed this morning and it says I have put on 6lb:mad:

    Very disheartened. Will be buying a set of scales today, hoping in the Wii is inaccurate.

    Hi :)

    It does sound that the wii scales were inaccurate! At least with the new scales you have a proper starting point. Try to only weigh at the same time each week as your weight does fluctuate- and sometimes scales can change weight just from being placed in a different position :mad:. I do say try as I am awful for weighing during the week and sometimes when I see the scales going up despite being 'good' it can put me off plan!

    Your food so far has looked great, and it's great your getting the water in- another thing I'm awful for!!

    Hi Ally and Thank you.

    I am going to be weighing myself on a Sundayonly now, same scales, same place and no clothes next time lol.
    Food wise ,I am really enjoying the plans so far, great that I am not limited to how much I can eat. Alchohol is going to be the hard and I spend a lot of time at work so need to plan what I eat for lunch to resist the office supermarket dash!
    Always have drunk lots of water, so no real change there for me.
    Hubby is cooking roast dinner now. He is being very supportive and is not doing his 'special' cabbage (braised in loads of butter with lardons!) Roast potaoes being done in Micro then in Fry light.
    I have to do this… So fed up with being fat and feeling so unhealthy.
    I go on holiday in 5 weeks and want to feel a bit more happy. x
