    Hiya... Im a serial dieter.. Weight watchers, slimming world etc but then i seem to loose motivation but i know i need to loose the weight as im the heaviest ive ever been. I was really successful with weight watchers years ago but my bf at the time wasnt happy i lost weight and put me down comstantly so the weight crept back on.. And then some! My current partner is much more supportive but i still cant seem to stick to any diet for more than a month...

    I tried sw there but My job as a support worker doesnt really help as my service users are always wanting to go to mcdonalds etc and although theyre not the healthiest i thought maybe calorie counting would be easier to work around?

    I calculated calorie allowance on mfp and it says 1470... Would this be about right? (Im 5'7 and 245lbs)

    Im pretty skint untill the end of the month so my diary probably wont be the best untill next friday when im paid!

    I slept in today (first day off in a fortnight whoop whoop!) so i didnt have breakfast

    Lunch: chicken mugshot (204kcal)

    Snack: 2x coffee with skimmed milk amd sweetner (30kcal) pack of cheese and onion french fries (84kcal)

    Dinner: weight watchers Jamaican curry (308kcal)

    Snack: 2x satsumas (60kcal) and I ate some of my friends minstrels I will check calories in a bit

    Feeling quite positive today... Went over my calories yesterday by 50 which I think is not bad for my first day... I'm working today but brought a packed lunch...

    Breakie: 2xweetabix with skimmed milk and a cinder toffee flavoured coffee

    Lunch: 2x brown bread with asda light sweet chilli soft cheese, a few grapes, an apple and a satsuma

    Dinner: quorn bolognase with loads of veg through it

    Me and my service user went a 30min brisk walk which I've added into mfp and we are spending the day walking around a shopping centre but not adding that in!

    Total kcal left: 800

    I'm trying to fit in my 5 a day... 4/5 so far

    Hiya and welcome to the cc section :)

    I'm also a serial dieter and tried everything in the book. I like cc as I can basically have what I want within reason.

    Good luck :)

    Thanks :) yeah i like the sw recipes but sometimes if I'm doing 13hr shift with a visit to mcdonalds in the middle it's just too hard to resist lol! X

    Oook not the best few weeks! I mess up one day and that's the willpower out the window... I NEED to do it though... The most embarrassing thing happened the other day... I was out working with a service user and I bent over and my jeans ripped... I had to walk around like a penguin before racing home to change into a pair of (too small) jeggings! So here goes....
    (Ps I can never remember calories so I will just put total at the end as I'm using my phone and that's where I use mfp... And I upped my calorie allowance to loosing 1lb a week so I get 1800 surely I can't go over this?!)

    Yeah and my bf didn't get why I was so upset :( guys just don't understand lol! Anyway I ended up spending the last few days eating all the junk I had in the house... I shall try AGAIN! I'm working 12-9.30pm today with a mcdonalds trip I might not be able to resist with a service user (what's annoying is I don't even particularly like mcdonalds I just can't seem to resist!)

    Breakfast: 2x wholemeal bread with egg and (extra light!) Mayo

    Snack before work: grapes/strawberries and new coconut/lime muller light/bring grapes for work

    Dinner: happy meal

    Snack after dinner: rocky road hifi and packet of crisps (I go to a disco for people with learning difficulties and they hand out cake and crisps!)

    As I'm out the house I hopefully won't come across anything too naughty!

    Whoops slight change as my first service user wanted to go for lunch and there was nothing healthy so lentil soup and lasagne... I will try my hardest not to have a happy meal later (I'm so stuffed just now anyways!) and I will be under my calories still eek x

    At the moment I feel so sick I'm not sure I want to eat... I didn't get to sleep till about 3am so coffee is defo in order! I got a new tassimo machine yesterday so I'm testing out the caramel latte this morning yum! Today's plan is I go out for breakfast with another staff member and a service user (every Wednesday and Sunday!) I morrisons so that will be quite high but I'm out till 10pm with a wee gap in the middle so I will try not to eat much else later...

    He works in a call centre and a fraudster called up and he gave them details (they knew security password) he has a meeting on the 14th which is the end of his months suspension and they will tell him then! He's also went to doctors cos he had a bit of a breakdown at work and didn't tell me and he's been getting up in the morning and pretending to go to work and just walking about and sitting on busses all day!

    That sounds unfair .. If the caller knew the security details then hardly your bfs fault.

    Hope it all gets sorted soon xx

    I know I feel sorry for him but annoyed that he lied... He's applying for other jobs anyway incase he doesn't get kept on .... My diary today has been nothing but junk but I still have 1000kcal left...

    Crispie cake, a packet of crisps, two biscuits and two tassimo drinks! X
