    This is my second and definitely last attempt at a diary - cos this time I'm definitely going all the way!

    About me: 4th Jan 2013 I started doing SW from home. That day I weighed myself and came in at 25st 10lbs and I swear I almost broke down. At 5ft 7 I was morbidly obese, couldn't walk far without my legs and back aching, stairs were impossible, finding clothes was a nightmare. Enough was enough. I started the plan myself at home and by early September 2013 I had reached 19st 10lbs. I was over the moon.

    And...that's where complacency stepped in. I was by no means at goal but had lost so much that the benefits were already fantastic. I can walk miles, smaller clothes, feel better etc and I was in a new relationship.

    So, since then I've tried several times to start again with little success because my heart just wasn't in it.

    This week something has finally clicked and I am back to it! For real. So I bit the bullet yesterday and weighed myself and I am 20st 1lb. I am angry that I've wasted the past 9 months or so in terms of how much more I could have had off, but am massively relieved that I've only gained 5lbs.

    My target this week is to lose that 5lbs and get myself back down to my lowest weight on this journey. So my weigh in day will be a Friday.

    Thank you to whoever takes the time to read this and hopefully we can help and support each other along the way.

    I've finally decided no more excuses, I want results and you only get one or the other! Let's do this

    So today I woke up late and had to rush to meet a friend for a catch up then a movie.

    Our meeting place is Starbucks which usually holds a whole host of temptations for me ...but not this time! In the past my favourite thing was a caramel frappacino with cream and a muffin. Today I was super good and had a fruit salad and a spearmint green tea - feel sooo good for it

    Came home and made a big pot of SW chilli, was absolutely lush. I made it my own way with the following:

    Extra lean mince
    Mixed beans
    Sweet corn
    Chopped toms

    Lots of chilli garlic and cayenne pepper! Can just about feel my tongue again lol. Lots left over for tomorrow's tea as well.

    Might have some fruit salad and muller light later - if I've any room that is!

    Yeah I still can't quite believe I managed to say no to the bad stuff! I really mean it this time though.

    I actually just found out the old gym I used to go to is closing so I'm looking around pricing a new one. That's phase 2 of my body fat attack - exercise lol. Just need to find a gym close by that doesn't cost the earth lol

    Morning Jojo!

    Thanks so much, I managed to get 2lbs off this week :) Initially I was like "aw is that it!?" But hey ho a loss is a loss and so long as I'm heading in the right direction I don't mind. Plus it takes me into a new stone bracket :)

    Aw STS isn't bad at all, especially if you've been a little naughty. You never know though you could be surprised by Wi I've my fingers crossed for you to get a loss! Sometimes the scales can surprise you ;)
