    Hey All,

    Thought I would start my first offical food diary on here.

    Although today is Sunday and therefore treat day I am only going to put my gym times in today :)

    Burnt 705 cals today at the gym, very happy with that! When we started going 6 weeks ago, I was struggling to burn 200 cals per session so really happy with what I am acheiving now.

    Will start the proper food post tomorrow... :)

    Thanks both :)

    I am going to stick to 1500 cals a day especially if I am going to be burning 700 cals off per gym session. If/when my weight loss slows down, I may drop to 1200 cals a day. :)

    Full fat coke, I'm soooooo jealous! I used to be so addicted to that stuff, I miss it sooooooo much! I have tesco flavoured sparkling water or sprite zero now to fulfill my fizzy cravings... then I don't have to sacrifice any food... if I ever get to goal I'm gonna make such a crap thin person, lol!!!

    How are you finding this week?

    Same here hun, used to drink gallons of the stuff! Really cut down now and just have one or two cans of it as a treat a week. Also cut out having any tea at work so drinking water all day now.

    Been a bit tough this week, have been eating rubbishly and not going to the gym as much as I like all because of work issues. Happy with my 1lb loss though :)

    How about you? x x

    Well done on the loss, even 1lb is blooming hard work!!!

    I've been good on the gym front, but my food choices could have been much better, my weigh in is tomorrow, so fingers crossed!

    I hope work goes back to normal soon so you can get to the gym.

    Keep on trucking

    Going to Chester for the weekend tomorrow, so that will involve lots of eating out, hope the walking about will counteract some of the things we eat and will be back at the gym on Tuesday!

    Thanks chick, I will be back on it on Tuesday! Keep up the hard work at the gym, your doing great, and you do need to eat a bit more because of the energy you will be using. Well that's my excuse! :)

    Good Luck for WI tomorrow x x
