Hellloooo there! A good few of you fine fellows might recognise me from flying about boards and giving my 2 pence on everyone and their wife's diet! I've been calorie counting since December 1st 2010, and to mark the 6 month mark of dieting I've decided to start writing a diary. I'm 60 pounds down from last December (whooppee!! ) and I'm only 7lb away from my goal of 8 stone (double whoopppee! ) The weight is now coming of slower than a week in the jail, so I'm going to write a diary as something I can keep me on the straight and narrow until I reach goal. I hope this diary will also serve as a little 'keepsake' that I can look back on - after all losing 67lb, nearly 40% of my body weight, is life changing! :happy036: I'm going to update every time I eat and every time I fancy a ramble, so be prepared for this to be updated a zillion times a day Feel free to add comments, or ask me for any advice. I'm just your average joe who has lost a bit of weight so if you've got a problem, I've probably been there myself and will be more than happy to help you out. In that same point, because I'm just your average Joe (or should that be Josephine?) I do make mistakes so don't be afraid of telling me if you think I'm going wrong. Ok, so down to the nitty gritty of food. Today, so far Breakfast - 8:30am Baked potato and cheese - 400 calories Okay, so it's not the most conventional breakfast. But in my defence I'm not going to be able to eat until later in the afternoon so I needed a good fill up to keep me in tip top form and plus when I opened up the fridge it was looking at me (perfectly acceptable excuse I think) Running calories total: 400 Will update when I eat again! Hope you all have a lovely day.
