    So i thought i'd start a diary, no secrets, just the truth so here goes....

    Last June i had a gastric bypass surgery. Unfortunately for me the weight loss fairy had the day off on that day so it didn't all miraculously fall off me as it has with some of my friends... But by November last year i was approx 4 stone down and there it has lingered. Not through my surgery failing but with myself, who researched thoroughly, who got complacent and started having too many 'treats'.....

    So about 6 weeks ago i joined w/w but with work and commuting before my relocation i never went after that first week. Three weeks ago this Tuesday i headed over to my local group, as i've now relocated and have more control over my food, and weighed in exactly the same as i was the first time. Stopped to class, brought a calculator and fell in love with the pro points plan.... I'm blessed that i can't eat huge amounts, although amazingly crap goes down quickly and easily, and am finding living with my pro points and the odd treat is working well. I've never felt so in control, especially now i've brought a new battery for my kitchen scales and discovered my 60g of muesli i guesstimated each day was in fact closer to 100g's...

    So my results? First week weigh in left me 4.5lb lighter, week 2 only a 1lb, but with my mis weighing i can't control....

    So this week i've started riding my bike and trying to walk more, and Just Dance 2 on the Wii is fab :)

    I'm looking forward to weigh in on Tuesday although my point counting went haywire and i lost track at a family bbq last night. I don't think i was bad enough that it will impact too much. And if it does then i've learned a lesson about mathematics....

    So anyway, good luck to you on your w/l journey, i hope i haven't bored you too much xx
