    Hello everyone! I've ummed and aaahed about doing a food diary for a while... and have decided to fight the bullet and go for it.

    I'm in a happy relationship and have a little boy of 17months. My starting weight was 20st 9lb and as soon as my son was 3months old I joined Cambridge. I got down to 16st 4lb and was elated! I carried it well as i'm 5ft 10 and for the first time in ages I was happy. Then... due to the fact I couldn't afford the 56.00 per week that Cambridge was costing me, i decided to quit..... and join slimming world. Big mistake :-( I was niave to the fact that my body would adjust to another diet just like that and after a week of following green days (cheaper) I put on 4lb (and i was religiously good in fear of putting on!).... so I've tried slimming world to fail and then because cambridge has screwed my head up i've since tried slim fast, tony ferguson and recently atkins. I am such a mess and i'm sure my body doesn't know what's going on!... So I've come to the conclusion there is no quick fix, there is no cutting out food groups and if I had of done ww from the start and only lost 1-2lb a week, i would be at my target by now... instead i am out of pocket from cambridge and back up to 18st 8lb!! :-(

    Sorry to waffle guys, just wanted to give you some background. I lost 4lb last week on atkins from 18 12 to 18 8, but I couldn't stand the restrictions so i'm back to ww basics... doing the discover plan!! Wish me luck xxx
