The Chronicles of wish

#1
Hi everyone, after reading some of the diary's on here i've been inspired to start my own! hopefully this will help me stay on track and get some support at the same time. I did cd in May 2008 and lost 3.5 stone, however after ending up nearly as bald as kojack :cry:I stopped! Since then I have gained weight but weirdly I stay the same weight until periods of binge eating such as xmas and studying for exams and holiday where I can easily put on 7lbs in a week :eek: (Dublin August 2009 a prime example of this!) I then tend to stay the same weight until next xmas, holiday etc... Anyway long story short I have gained 2 stone of my 3.5 back :eek: and would like to lose most if not all by this August. Might as well also tell you a bit about myself, i'm a mature student:giggle:compared to most anyway (old enough to get funny looks when i pull out my NUS card in topshop) i'm in my final year and will hopefully qualify in September as a midwife. Sometimes I am on placement where it is easy to stay on track, apart from the boxes of chocolates which are always around! and other times I am in the classroom, writing essays etc.. where it is not so easy. I am on 21 points a day and for exercise I am currently attempting Hannah Watermans workout, which at present I can only manage 1 section of but am doing it every other day and will hopefully soon be able to complete a burpie with as much style and grace as Ms Waterman.

So here goes with day 1. I worked a night shift last night and will be tonight which kind of always throws u a bit but..
BREAKFAST: nothing I was sleeping :p
Lunch: 0 point veg soup, 4 slices 50/50 bread (2.5) extra low fat philly (1) cucumber (0). Squares (1.5) low fat yogurt (1) weetabix cereal bar (1).

So that's it 7 points so far, don't know bout dinner yet I try to eat before I start work and then have a snack about 3am so will update later. :D

Hiya. Firstly, well done on the midwifery (sp) - That is one thing I have contemplated dabblin in a few times but never had the courage to get up and do anything about it because I always think people will laugh at me for even thinking it in the first place.

Secondly, welcome to the diaries and good luck on your journey. I'll keep popping back to see how you are doing. xxx
Hi thanks for wishing me luck! And if you have thought about becoming a midwife do it! I was the same, thinking about doing it for ages, didn't know where to start etc...but i'm so glad I did. People wouldn't laugh at you i'm sure, but what if they did? you just go and show them how amazing you can be. :D

I think it is a good dvd, like all of them you have to have the motivation to do it and can get repetitive, however I can see why this dvd works it is unlike any I have ever done before and the sections are kept short enough to combat any boredom. I actually thought I was quite fit until I tried this dvd, how wrong I was! Let me know how you get on with it if you decide to get it, and if you can achieve more than 1 section at a time then your a better woman than I am.X

You know, you're actually right! I mentioned it to my husband yesterday, and even though he raised his eyebrows in a "Oh here we go, another career idea" He did actually say "Go for it!" - You have really inspired me to find out more about this now. Thanks, for that little push I needed! :)
