    Hiya! I'm Eileen and I'm 30. I'm married with three children (2, 7 and 8) and am in first year at university.

    I've done SW a couple of times before and I always end up giving up! But this has been a big year of change for me and so I'm hoping I'll have the determination to stick at it and actually see a difference.

    I've been a veggie for years (about 20!) and so I always stick to green days.

    Please say hi if you pop in! Comments and conversation are very welcome.

    Eileen ;)

    Thanks for the encouragement! I really hope this time I stick to it but I think you are right, it is about mindset and I've made a lot of big changes this year so hopefully this will be part of that.

    Yep I'm the same - good luck with your journey, hope you manage to stick to it! I'm the same though, over the years have tried this and that and never really managing to do very much! Hopefully this time my head is in a better place for it though - definitely feel quite determined this time!

    Feel like yesterday went well, I used all my healthy extra's which I sometimes struggle to.
    Tonight I'm spending the evening with my sisters - having a wee qni/girly night. One is on SW with me and the other has done it before so the plan is to have lots of healthy snacks however if I go over my syns I'm not going to beat myself up about it. I might have a go at the flexi-syns thing. Am I right in saying I just set myself a limit on syns over the normal 5-15 and stick to that instead?

    Just in from a run - actually feel amazing after it! Never thought I'd say that about running but there you go. Still slow but a definite improvement from last weekend.

    Not had the best weekend. After an ok Saturday morning I went out at night and had a few pints of cider. But Sunday I was in uni library studying and ate terribly! A whole bag of m+s jelly babies! *shame* and loads of bread too. Ah well. Back on it today!

    In the midst of essay writing and stressed to my eyeballs about it so to be honest not the best day food wise. Taking a rest day exercise wise but planning to go out for a run tomorrow at some point and if my 30 day shred DVD comes I'll try and fit that in too.

    Thanks for the encouragement!

    Had a couple of rubbishy days foodwise on Thurs and Fri topped off with *a lot* of wine on Friday night but on Saturday morning my 30 day shred dvd arrived so I'm hoping being good for the rest of the week until WI on Wednesday combined with some extra exercise will help me minimise the damage.

    So I'm just about to do day 2 of the 30DS and then if I'm able I'm going to do a wee 20 min run.

    What a terrible week! I have WI tonight and I'll be lucky if I STS, however I am resolving no matter what the scales show tonight I'm back on plan 100%. I really think I need to remember to do good diaries, they definitely help keep me on the straight and narrow.

    Well as suspected I gained 1.5lb tonight. Not surprised at all, but not letting it get me down. I still have my half stone achievement (just) and this has hopefully given me the kick up the backside I needed. My plan this week:
    keep food diaries all week
    try and do 30 day shred every day
    go for a run twice this week

    And I'm going to aim for a 2lb loss.
