    Hi all!

    Weighed in for the start of my slimming world journey this morning and am at 10st 11lb, which wasn't as bad as i thought as i'm under 11st! haven't been there since 2008 when i was losing weight for my last trip to America!

    Since then i have gained pretty consistently, and when i reached over 12st and a size 16 decided to call time and do something about it :) Unfortunately i chose the unhealthy route of a very restrictive plan and even though i've lost over a stone this year it's been hard work, not sustainable in the long term and left me hungry and miserable!

    So I am hoping that SW is not only going to help me lose the excess weight but also teach me how to eat better FOREVER and keep it off.

    And I'm taking my time over it as i have approx 10 months to lose just short of 2 stone because if i try and rush i will resort to silly tactics and I'm determined not to go down that road again :)

    Looking forward to getting to know you all and reading your diaries for inspiration xx

    First day done was 100% and feel nicely full right now!!! Found it relatively easy though getting calorie counting out of my head completely may take some time.

    Am starting with a couple of green days as am skint until thursday when i can get to Tesco for a big SW friendly shop........and am sadly quite excited bout it ;) Seem to have eaten quite lot of pasta which is unfamiliar to me but am putting my faith in the plan! 11 syns as well which is ok i guess

    Well, onto day 2 and had a mug shot for breakfast..........strange choice i know but forgot to buy eggs yesterday-oooops! vegetable hotpot with potato slices for dinner, not sure on lunch yet probably pasta with tuna as my hexb as it's what i've got available :)

    I had an activia yoghurt drink too because they help my stomach issues, will have to find out if this can be a hex or synned! don't want to give them up as they really make a difference.

    Off to work this afternoon again so got plenty of superfree snacks ready and waiting-very boring job and i'm a terrible nibbler when unoccupied :D

    Hi Melissa, just came across your diary and noticed you are the same weight as me, my target is 9st10 but I will probably reduce it to 9-7 when I get nearer, was thinking we could maybe push each other along the way? What day do you weigh in? x
