    So a little history:

    I started weightwatchers after my 20th birthday last february in an attempt to ditch the weight I had gained since joining uni! It all went very well and I lost two stone taking me down to 10st.. at 5ft3 i was just about happy with this but wouldnt mind loosing a little more. Just about the time I reached 10st I went off travelling for two and a half months to SE asia and Canada which involved a lot of beer and a messy break up resulting in me gaining one of the stones back over the travelling and following few months.

    However now I am back again fighting!

    I rejoined WW and lost about 5lbs but can't afford to keep up the membership anymore. I have learnt enough to stick to the WW propoints plan without a membership though and am now down to 10st 6lbs.

    I've just started studying for my final exams which means long days of sitting and reading, craving chocolate to make me feel better about life, which is why I have started this food diary! I'm hoping it will help me keep better track of what I'm eating and maybe prevent binges too when I am feeling down about exams, so here goes:
    I'm on 26 propoints per day, and my final aim would be between 9st7 and 10st.
    I also generally exercise between 4-5 times a week, but this will depend on my workload over the next 6 weeks.

    I would also love a weightloss buddy with similar weekly goals to me (1-2lbs a week) !

    So today I headed home for bank holiday weekend, which makes things harder because I can't plan my meals very far in advance while I'm here! Also easter means chocolate and that I can eat cheese again which I gave up for lent! One of my friends bought me a chocolate egg (grr) but it was a kind thing to do :) I have split it up into 4 portions which I worked out are 5pts each to try control myself a little more, I also turned down the offer of a meal out (curry) tonight which I'm proud of myself for :).
    Here is today's food diary:
    Apple: 0

    Wafer thin ham: 4
    Salad: 0
    Salad dressing: 1
    Pinapple chunks: 0

    Sweet potato wedges: 4
    3x Fish Fingers: 4
    Mushrooms: 0
    Light Mayo: 1

    Easter egg portion: 5
    Cube of dark chocolate: 1
    Milk: 2
    Tunnocks Caramel wafer: 4
    Total: 26

    Haven't managed to do any exercise today due to travelling home, seeing my fam and revision but the plan is to go running in the morning and rowing on sunday morning to try keep to my 5 times per week aim!

    xx :)

    After a fire/calling 999/lots of panicking/stress/crying situation I just ate a piece of shortbread and two pieces of dark chocolate. I know its stupid dealing with it like that but theres no one in and I feeling quite worked up and distressed :/ one of those things you do and instantly regret. Although it could be worse then that. Not sure about the shortbread but the ww forums seem to think its about 2-3pts and the chocolate will add on 2. Annoyed with myself but it is only 5pts over.

    Grr :(

    Argh its been a hectic few days with bank holiday weekend! But I'm back. The weekend was ok, I did ALOT of exercise and pointed my days fine other than sunday when I ate lots of cheese because thats what I gave up for lent! However yesterday I weighed in at 10st4 :D which means I'm 2lbs down! Im so happy about it! Can't wait to get under 10st because I've only been there once before for a very short period and it will feel like a real achievement. Im also trying to not concentrate to hard on my weightloss at the moment though because I have to prioritise my finals and if that means eating a bit more chocolate to make me work harder I'll do it!
    Here's yesterday and todays food diary:


    Banana - 0
    Jordans frusli - 3
    Low Fat Yoghurt (50g) - 1

    So I went quite a bit over yesterday, I had a bit of a revision related breakdown in the evening and ate more chocolate than I should, but Im going to the gym and today is a new day! I also have my weeklies which I'm not really planning on using many of this week (other than a few drinks on friday) so its not the end of the world :)

    Ugh, I know how tough it is to keep healthy when exams are looming and you just sit all day with your nose in a book and sky high stress levels! So impressed at how much exercise you do! That's must be good for you both physically and mentally, well done! :)
