Happy New Year everyone! Since I haven't really been on here much over the past few months and now that we’re into the New Year I thought best to start completely afresh with a new diary. For anyone who might be interested in the old one you can find it here. For anyone who can’t really be bothered reading it (and I can’t really blame you!), here’s a quick summary..... I started my Slimming World journey in November 2012 weighing 13st8lb. My main aim was to get fitter and slimmer for my 30[SUP]th[/SUP] birthday in July 2013 and for my holiday to Florida in October 2013. I’m really pleased with my progress and at my last weigh in (27 December 2013), I was 10st6.5lb which means I’ve lost a total of 3st1.5lb in just over a year. Admittedly I’ve over indulged slightly since then so I’m preparing myself for a bit of a gain at my next weigh in but hopefully I’ll be able to get myself to my target weight of 9st10lb fairly soon. Although I’ve only got around 10lb or so to lose, I’m not going to set myself a target date. I think it may be a long journey as I’ve got so much going on just now I don’t know how well I’ll stick to plan. As long as things move in the right direction, however slowly, then I’ll be happy. As well as losing that last little bit of weight, I really want to get fit and tone up this year so I’m joining the gym next week with a friend. I’m really determined that I won’t end up being one of those people who join in January and stop going by February though! I almost completed Couch to 5k last year so I’m hoping to start running again. Since it isn’t great weather for running outdoors (particularly here in Scotland!), I want to really focus on that at the gym. Food wise, I'm usually pretty on plan during the week when I'm at work but things can go off the rails a bit at the weekend. I'm going to try my hardest to at least keep my SW head on at the weekend and make reasonable choices even if it's not always totally on plan. Surely 5 days on plan is better than none???? I'll try and post my food on here daily at least during the week then I'll confess my sins (or should that be syns!!) on a Monday morning...! Please pop by and say hello. The support of other Minimin-ers on my last diary was invaluable so it would be great to have that again.
