    I'm bex, 31, mom to twin boys who will be 5 next month, and this is hopefully the last introduction I'll do on this site.

    I've done every diet. I've been dieting for 8 years. I lost all my weight on Cambridge but regained. Have switched half heatedly on and off sw since then.

    So I'm back, but this time I'm giving weight watchers a go. I normally avoid ww, the idea of counting everything stresses me out. I'm starting to accept that this is probably because I'm scared of it on some subconscious level. I've decided to do ww firstly because I need the portion control in some way. Secondly because it allows for me to stick to plan on the days I've not been prepared, such as forgotten a packed lunch etc.

    I'm walking at the moment, not massively but we've had a dog who I walk for at least half hour every day. I've also ordered the Vicky Pattison DVD. It's had good reviews but I like the fact it's only 10 minutes, hoping I'll be able to fit this in.

    So I have about 5.5-6 stone to lose. When I lost my weight on Cambridge I got to 10.7 and tbh I think now looking back I was happy with this, so that's my long term goal. Short term, I'm going to Disney world in May with the kids and hub. I would like to have lost more than 2 stone for this, I think that's doable.

    I've not weighed in properly yet, I'm not starting till 6th when kids are back, tho I am tracking bits to get used to the app. I'm an online member rather than groups. I can't decide about weighing yet, I don't really want to weigh at home in the morning as I get obsessive and don't sleep properly etc, so am thinking about weighing somewhere else. Maybe I could see about the local chemist or doctors at some point this week.

    I'll also be giving up Pepsi max.... God help me lol

    So there I am. I need and want to crack this properly and for good this year. I need to for my kids. I need to for me, I had high blood pressure at last docs appt and have been told to monitor for a week before going back in April. My dad had a heart attack when he was 34, I'm 31 so not far behind and don't want to go the same way..

    Would love for anyone to buddy up and help keep each other focused xxx

    Hi bex. I saw Vicki on mailonline. Omg she looks fab. On a similar vein for a 10 min workout have a look at Jillian Michaels shred. Its hard core but equally quick. Good luck flower on whatever you decide.

    Thanks guys!! I've done the shred before, well most of it, I just can't bring myself to do it again yet lol.

    Today has been good, I'm within points and took a good 40 minute walk with the dog this morning :). Had porridge for breakfast, beans on toast for lunch and then roast beef for dinner. Yum. Fighting the munchies but I will persevere lol.

    Shez, thanks chick. Will come hunt your diary now x

    Not such a good end though, we were all starving last night and food delivery not till today so ended up with chips and rolls in bed. So I'm over points for the week but still time to bring it back. Though I'm not overly stressing as Monday is my official start date. In the mean time, off to walk the pup to get some points back lol x

    Morning :)

    Hmmm see this is where the problem lies. Instead of thinking "chips in bed, just wrong!!" I am thinking who would know that its only 10 am and I am wondering where to get a bag of chips and if my bed is still warm lol. Now all of you know.... so I won't do it!!

    Lol there was something naughty about it!! I wouldn't normally but had the kids with me and it's fresh bed Friday today so not so bad.

    We're off to the cinema shortly and then to a party so I'll check in later. Not going to be a great day food wise but this is the week to enjoy my family x

    Similar minds Shez... Lol

    Morning em :)

    So today is preparation day... Soup to make, kids to get back ready for school, lunches to do, and work to get caught up on... Gonna be a busy day I think.

    Also I made a decision that I'm Not going to weigh myself. I figure there's enough to stress over so I'm just going to focus on sticking to plan and making sure I at least walk the dog every day. My DVD has arrived too so i hope to give that a go tomorrow!
