    Hello, I have just joined the forum today and am going to start a weight loss diary so I can record my progress and motivate me to keep going. I am a yo yo dieter of many years and this is my upper weight and I am just starting to feel really uncomfortable with myself and in my clothes. In the past when I have put weight on it has been evenly distributed but now I have got most on the belly, which is very noticable and I am stuck to wearing certain clothes and cover ups to disguise it. Anyway this is my first day and I hope doing this helps me stick to it.

    Well done my first day was pretty easy, I just have to make sure that I have food in that I like to eat. I got out for a walk and managed to do some cleaning in the house, I have to keep busy when I am doing this. I feel much better this morning I sleep a lot better without alcohol and less food. I stuck to about 1200 cals.

    Hi Velvet!

    The first few days are definitely the hardest. I always try to keep something in like celery and low-cal hummus (savoury) and bananas or ice lollies (sweet) in the house so if I find myself really craving, I can use up 50 - 100 cals and it gives me a bit of a boost. Having a food diary really helps.

    Well done for staying active. Hang on in there!

    Well I have made it through too today and stuck to it and I have been away for a couple of days. Its been hard cooking a bbq for the kids and just sticking to a piece of salmon and a big green salad for me. I find sticking to the diet easier if I keep some low calorie ready type meals in stock and I always have a muller light yog with lots of fruit for afters. It does not feel as if I am burning yet though losing weight is much harder the older you get.

    I know exactly what you mean about keeping ready low calories meals in stock ... I've relied on them a lot this week, and they have been a godsend. What with those, and a huge supply of fat free Activia (half the calories of muller light on average!), and my favourite treat ... Alpro Chocolate Soya Dessert (110 calories per pot), and I feel like I can stay in control. Keep strong, and you will get there x

    Feeling a lot better for cutting down on food and alcohol, I have been sleeping really well, before I was waking up about 2am with terrible indigestion. I got really stuck into my garden yesterday and made a mark, I just have to keep busy when I am doing this.

    1 x oatibix with milk sugar and piled with fruit
    2 x toasted granary bread with 1/2 tin tuna on
    chicken breast grilled with new pots and a large green salad with dressing
    muller light yog ( I will try activia)
    loads of coffees during the day
    diet coke( replaces the alcohol)

    Landie - Glad to see someone else who loves the chocolate soya pots! They're yummy, aren't they? Sometimes I give them a quick blast in the microwave to turn them into a hot pudding :)

    Congratulations on your weight loss, that's brilliant! :D

    We're both about the same weight and height, so it's really interesting reading your diary and comparing... you're doing so well! *jealous* lol
