    OOhhhhh hello to my new diary. I'm starting a new WW diary as I kept one while I was on CD and found it really helped me stay focused and on track.

    Two years ago was when i last did WW. Until then WW was just a way of life for me as my Mum followed the plan while I grew up. It all got a bit stale with me and I was tired of yoyo dieting. I then read a Jason Vale book on eating healthy and it got me out of dieting and let me maintain my weight. So I had a year out of dieting before starting CD. I lost 2 stone in the first 2 months and then kept on the plan for a further 8 months with the next half stone going on and off. Completly my fault as I was faffing about with it.

    Last Tuesday night after a lot of thought and a chat with my CD lady and my fiance I decided to start WW the following day. I am SO glad I made this choice. I feel free being able to eat and point again.:character00148: I also have energy to exercise again and plan on not using my exercise as bonus points to eat more.

    It's been fun reading up on WW again, buying the magazine and doing a proper shop. I've missed cooking and eating normally with lots of choice. My other half eats a healthy diet and we can start cooking and eating together again now.

    It's important for me to remember down the line how happy I am to have food back in my life. I know a time may come when I take it all for granted again and end up going off track. This is why i need this diary to help motivate myself even if some days all I need is to log my food diary.

    The main reason to get rid of this last stone is so i feel fantastic at my wedding dress fitting on 23rd April. Apart from this to focus on I love fashion and can't wait to go on a massive shopping spree when I reach goal before my wedding in Mexico on 20th May. :love047: I would love to have a new wardrobe for the week in Mexico and our honeymoon in New York. So I have lots of reasons to shed this weight and get to goal. I also have 6 weddings coming up between April and November! My main motivation while I was on CD was being chief bridesmaid for my sister in November and that goal kept me focused and kept the weight off.

    I can't wait to get to my goal weight and as long as the scales move in the right direction I will be a happy bunny. So far so good this week. I will add my losses on Wednesdays.

    *This diary is for me to log my daily food and exercise when I need to.
    * To tell myself off if i slip up
    * To keep me focused on what I really want
    * To stop me boring my family and friends with diet talk
    * To get me to my goal. It will be the first time I ever get to my goal weight.
    * To keep track of my weekly losses.
    * Probably a whole load of other reasons too :)

    Stay focused and enjoy Sunshine :)

    I really enjoyed the fresh pasta, smoked salmon and philadelphia light with black pepper yesterday. So quick and easy...felt like a real treat actually.

    Foodie log so far-

    Breakfast - rice krispies, skim milk, water - 2pts
    Lunch - 2 ww toast, smoked salmon- tiny bit, philadelphia light, pepper, mug of tea - 3 pts
    Exercise - 30 mins on gravity strider
    Dinner - ww chicken pie and salad with light dressing - 6.5pts
    Treat - hot choc options- 0.5pts[/FONT
    ....... Zero point veg home made soup
    Water - 2 lites

    12pts by dinner. I'm on 17pts but thanks to over eating on ww icecream cones yesterday I'll have to save points all week. I'll have 1-2pts to play with later. x

    Thanks Shanny hun. I feel like such a stranger here so it's SO lovely to hear from you. Everyone seems really lovely here in the WW section tho :) CD was a lifeline for me and I knew everyone over there. But I am keeping this diary for myself.

    How are you getting on? It was fab seeing your pics a few weeks ago. Are we really the only Shrinklies left on Mini's? It's weird. Wonder what they are all doing now? I don't hear from Fattyfattybumtum these days. xxx

    Flip just realised I've posted on the food diary section so I have asked for my thread to be moved to the weight loss diary section instead. I'll get there eventually. Right off to get the housework done :) x

    We really did have a special support group. Youve done really well and it's fab to see that you're enjoying your new body so much. I can't wait till I'm there with you. My little clothes are just too tight so I stuggle with what to wear right now. I threw my bigger clothes out and I don't want to buy more so making do at the moment. I'm more relaxed now about taking my time getting to goal but so looking forward to that day when it arrives. I'll be screaming it from the roof tops lol xxx

    Gosh I just looked at the ww chicken and mushroom pie. It's tiny ! And 6pts. Not sure I'll have that tonight. Hum...... I'll have a rethink. Seems like a heck of a lot of points. I could have a breaded hadock for 3.5pts with a jaket potato 3pts for that or cook fresh. Choices choices. So nice to have choices. Talk about a lazy day. Needed this x

    Hiya.

    Good luck for this week. Yeah it's def a good way of keeping on track by logging everyday. I'm in a very eaty mood with totm due! Amazing how 17 pts some days seems loads and days like today seems so little! Odd as compared to Cambridge diet it Is loads lol

    the wedding should be a good incentive but it's not working so well as 2 months have passed since I bought my dress and um still the same weight. I've yoyo'd through the 2 months.

    Oohhhh you'll look fab in august on your holiday. Xxx

    Not a great day I must say. I could eat a house right now. I'm really due on and it always makes me want loads of food. Should be weighing in first thing tomorrow as its a week since I started. I don't feel like I've lost anything. I shall keep going tho and hope for a big loss next week. If ive put on, even tho it's totm, I know I'll feel disheartened.

    Eek x

    Hahah. I'm a foodie alright lol. I'm not gonna give in but I'm so bloated. If I feel this bloated in the morning I may put off weighing myself. I need to up my water and boost my exercise really.

    Note to self-
    * rivita are too more-ish so don't buy them.
    * watch portion sizes
    * favourite meal so far was smoked salmon pasta
    * looking forward to seeing girlie film soon with 3.5 pts popcorn
    * need to work out work lunches - didn't actually enjoy jacket tuna today

    Keep on track

    Oh dear :( I thought even tho I'm so bloated and feel heavy that I should weigh myself so I know where I am. I'm 2lbs up at 138lbs. Exactly what's happened weight wise the last two months on cd I've gone up and down all week from 134.5-138lbs. ??? I just feel sad. Less than 7 weeks till my dress fitting and yet another week has passed by. I've been putting off going to see the doctor but I think I'll have to go. This can't be right. You go on a diet to lose weight not yoyo for no reason up and down. I knew weighing and seeing a rise in the scales would upset me. I know i'm due on a d retaining water but there has to be more to it. I was stressed and upset this last week but what the heck is going on.
