09:57 am - sensible choices
1400 cals on thurs
1400 on friday, we had takeaway and I chose boiled rice and chicken and pineapple instead of the usual fried rice and satay option.

Going away for the weekend to a car "do" which involves 3 course dinner tonight and big picnic tomorrow, will make sensible choices where I can and stick to one glass of wine....or maybe two.....

I'd like to be slim NOW please, but will settle for slow progress.
I've booked my tattoo in for the 4th Sep, I'd like to be 10lbs lighter by then.

03:49 pm - Make a difference in 8 weeks
Hi all... or maybe no one depending if anyone has this on a list anymore.

I still weigh what I did three years ago...fuck it.
I weighed a stone less for about 6 months but then I took my eye of the scales and here I am again.

So I'm going on holiday at the end of September and I'll be turning 35, I really want to look different by then. Not unachievable I think...

I'm going to count calories 1400 a day.
I'm going to stop snacking because I'm bored.
I'm going to get on the wii fit three times a week.
I'm going to stop drinking mid week.
I'm going to stop biting my nails
I'm getting tattoed again

None of this is to recapture my youth, but I honestly feel like I've been asleep for the last two years. I need an actual kick up my hoo haa.

05:02 pm - Summer Lovin...
I've found a really good diet so far - It's called e-diets and it gives you menus for breakfast, lunch and supper throughout the week, it really helps and so long as you are happy making lots of meals yourself. 

I love it because I rarely feel hungry on it... It splits the calories up through the day so you have the same for breakfast, lunch and dinner, meaning I have a comparatively huge breakfast and feel great and that carries me through.

I also swim once a week and go bellydancing (well it has to be good for something!) and walk at least 2 miles a day.

I also give in to sweets, pudding and temptation from time to time.

I have gone from 13st 7 lbs to 12st 5lbs in a month and a half(ish)

It's working for me so far so I am happy...

Not sure I'll get to my goal weight but here's hoping

04:31 pm - Diet stuff
This keeping a food diary thingymajig is most helpful. Not only can I record honestly what things I am scoffing, I can see when and why I have certain things, and what times I rarely eat, and what sort of day I am having. Tis very good. 

I have also come up with another cunning plan, TM. My original plan was to put £1 into my Fat Dragon (don't chide me for the F word - he really is ROUND! Heh.) every time I lose 1lb. Then when I reach goal, buy myself something special with the contents of the moneybox. (Monsoon, here I come. Or the Brummie antique jewellers that I can never remember the name of - Scrof showed it to me on our last shopping trip.)

I have also decided on another track. Kia Faerie bought me a lovely box for my birthday with ivy on it. Paul may have also chipped in. :) I've used it for storing OSPs, which is a huge waste of a pretty box. (No jokes, ye smutty-minded.) So, on every day I do NOT buy a treat at work, I will put 50p into the ivy box. (Our vending machine takes 50ps for crisps and chocolate.) I am allowing one designated (and carefully monitored) treat a day, such as a weight watchers cake slice (2 points), or one bag of low fat crisps, or two pieces of 85% or higher cocoa content chocolate. I can have this at either lunch time or in the evening, but never both. So if I have my crisps at lunch time, as I did today (*checks book* yes, I did) I can't have anything choccy-based or treatified tonight after tea. Naughtier treats, such as a small bottle of cider, or a piece of cake which is non weight-watchers (like if it's someone's birthday) etc are relegated to weekends, in which case I may have one, so long as I cut the other treats out and balance things accordingly.

AND today is the first day I can put 50p in the ivy box. Go me. :)

This week the same weight again! But I am not disheartened because there are perfectly sensible reasons. I would explain all but, some of you are boys, some of you are family and some of you may be eating. 

*Scrof draws a discreet veil*

Apart from the icky reasons,  ( for which I have tablets ) this week has been a complete fecker with regard to sensible food consumption because we are having a new boiler fitted. The kitchen is a complete mess and I really can't face cleaning it to cook, only for it to be skanky again the next day..so we have eaten ready meals and last night a fantastic indian takeaway. All in all staying the same weight is damned impressive under these circumstances.

Right, how is everyone else doing, glittermouse I'm looking at you!

09:01 am - 13stone 12, -6lbs in total!
Well it seems that posting here every week is working, I've lost another 2 pounds this week. I'm now in the 13 stone bracket, which sounds much better than 14 something. Having to confess to you guys is keeping me on the straight and narrow, I'd be letting you down if I gave up or fell off the wagon. 

Mind you, losing weight in colder weather isn't easy ,I'm craving dumplings and stew and treacle sponge and custard.

To reaffirm my goal, I'd like to weigh 11 stone and just like glittermouse vital statistics of 40-30-40 would make me a curvy and happy scrof.

10:08 am - slow but steady
Another week and another pound off. So that makes 4lbs in three weeks, which is better than a kick in the crotch. The GP said it might be a slow process, something about post partum hormones..still I are the pleased! Especially as the birthday weekend involved lots of cider, bacon sarnies and a mammoth curry. Begone vile muffin top ;)

week 2 highs and middles
Week 2 and I've stayed the same, but I'm not disheartened because it's the week of the bloat so it'll all be gone by the weekend :) In other flab related news I can fit into my pre pregnancy jeans, which has enthused me no end. I'm determined to shift the remaining spare tyre, to the extent that I've gone through my wardrobe this morning and am charity shopping all of my maternity clothes. So I have to lose weight else I'll have nothing to wear :)

It's my birthday on friday and we have a house full over the weekend, could be a challenge to stay on the straight and narrow.

Sooooooooooo anyone else weighing today?

01:22 pm - good news and bad news
'Ey up, as we say in the North, first week of dieting and we have a result. I've lost 3 pounds yeeeeeee haaaaaaaa, and you know what? It wasn't difficult. I have changed my plan though, I'm using weightlossresources.co.uk which is cheaper than WW and for me is a better fit because it's calorie based and I like the message boards more too :)

Ok, so the bad news, I went to the dentist today, double whammy hygienist appt and the dreaded dentist too. The receptionist says "obviously you don't pay for your treatment, when is your baby due?" cue much mortification from me and a sputtered " no, she's a month old"

Ack, I still look pregnant then?! Bollocks, I'd thought I was looking kinda foxy in a still a bit heavy way. I came home and told the Markins, "she thought I was pregnant!", he smiled ruefully and patted my hand.... the unspoken, "yes dear that's because you do".

Oh well 3lbs is a really good start, how's everyone else doing?
