    :sign0144: I've been inspired to start a weight loss diary on here by reading those of others so thank you guys!

    I'm fast approaching my 51st birthday and after a traumatic couple of years (oh had heart attack then multiple bypass surgery, I had emergency hysterectomy, Mum died) I finally decided in June to stop procrastinating.

    Losing weight and getting fit were always things I was going to do "at some point" - like I was always going to sort all those (pre-digital) photographs into chronological order and put them into albums. (They are still there on top of the wardrobe.)

    There was no final thing that made me decide to do it now. It was more a combination of minor health issues, frustration over clothes looking yuk and not wanting to look a complete fright at various 'do's' that are happening next year.

    So here it is. It'll probably be tedious for others to read but hopefully cathartic for me to write. I'm the sort of person who relishes structure and order. I'm the saddo who loves entering their details and seeing the updated version of their weight loss statistics.

    Your comments are welcome at any time.

    Lunch of fresh salmon, cous cous and mixed salad plus an apple followed by an hour walking the dog. :doggy: Hoping to join a local badminton group this evening so I should probably try and save some energy for that!

    Thanks hells. It was. Been snacking on fruit this afternoon. The drawback of playing badminton in the evening is it means eating late... and weigh in day is tomorrow....in a quandary now...

    Well I went along to the badminton club :eek: I hadn't played for a few months and then it was against someone about the same ability as myself. Last night I went with a fellow SW lady who hadn't played since she was at school. The folk there were very friendly and encouraging but oh my goodness - all male and mostly far more proficient players than us! We played doubles, one match after another until (after about the 6th match) I was on the point of collapse. Seriously, I felt SO sick and as though I was about to pass out! I think it was because play was so relentless and I am very competitive.

    When we got outside the club we realised we had played for over an hour! We agreed we had enjoyed the evening and will be going back next week. When I got home and looked in the mirror my face was bright red :ashamed0005: I must be so unfit!

    Dinner: jacket potato with tuna (plus small amount of extra light mayo) and lots of salad. Muller Light vanilla yoghurt.

    I was completely wiped out after the badminton and was in bed by 10pm.

    One big ache today after last night's exertions - I'm sure it'll get easier. It'll be interesting to see how I go with the Wii Fit today!

    Breakfast: scrambled egg, bacon medallions and chopped tomatoes. Going to visit my Aunt for lunch today. She knows I am doing SW so hopefully will bear that in mind. :)

    Did 40 minutes on the Wii Fit before going to visit my Aunt.

    Lunch: jacket potato, ham and lots of salad, tbsp coleslaw - that was okay.

    2 large glasses of red wine :sign0007:

    Weighed in tonight and had lost 1/2lb. I know that's okay but I can't help feeling a little disappointment. I've not gone mad this past week and have done more exercise than usual.

    Dinner: cod, green beans and mashed potato

    Tomorrow is the start of a new week.

    Don't worry too much, I'm
    Not sure when you started, but my first week I was sooo good and only lost 1lb, then 2lb, 1.5lb, 4.5lb then 0.5lb, but it still averages out at 2lb per week, it just seems to cone off all at once!

    Thanks hells. I've lost 19 1/2 lbs now in 13 weeks. I did think it might come off faster as I was so overweight but I s'pose we're all different. I want to try and tone as I go along so maybe slow and sure is better.

    *trying to keep a positive outlook :fingerscrossed:

    That's about 1.5lb a week right? That's not bad at all, are you in the Xmas challenge? If you lose an average of 1.5lb per week from now until then you'll be nearly 2 stone lighter by Christmas and New Year :)

    Hi, just wanted to say hello. You have done so well so far, so well done you. And............. it's good to meet a fellow Wii Fitt-er. One and a half pounds a week is great - just keep going as you are, and keep posting your food diary if it helps you.
