I'm on my own - DP is away on a contract in Salisbury and DD is at my parents. I'm onlates for the next two days so thought it better to start sooner than later and get into the habit of not eating in the works greasy sloppy and tasteless canteen.... Razz

I want to slim down and get back to the sexy curvy me i was when i met DP - not the oversized backside like a shelf hippo i am now! I know DP loves me like crazy - but i want to do it for me. Ideally a dress size at t time is what i'm aiming for! But to be a 12 would be ideal...

Soooooo here goes:

[color=cyan]Friday 28th December[/color]
Brekkie: Alpen High Fruit, Semi Skimmed Milk, and cup of tea

Mid Morning : Twinings Pineapple Greeen Tea and a satsuma

Lunch: Two slices of wholemeal toast, with baked beans and sprinkling of cheese.

Dinner (pack up for work) SALAD - Bacon, Turkey and Boiled Egg with Lettuce, Tomatoes, Cucumber and Reduced Fat Salad Cream

Followed by fresh chopped Pineapple and Honeydew Melon.

Going to drink water and fruit tea only at work this evening!

Well my food diary starts today, as I think it is the only way I am going to lose my weight. I'm going to the gym pretty regularly now, but that doesn't help me lose any weight. But to be fair I am burning off the fat in certain places and generating muscle in others.

Problem is the beer belly is the one thing I want to go, and it is the one thing that doesn't seem to be going anywhere. I know I must be doing some good as some people joked about me being the bouncer at my mum's New Year's eve party.

nothing wrong with a beer belly- good for hugging (well I think so anyway)

Im starting my food diary (and Slimming world- again) on Monday. I want to loose some serious weight this year before I go on holiday in Oct.

I would start but it is probably somewhat pointless as i'm still troughing my way through xmas chocolates and the temptation is too great Embarassed

I'm aiming for Feb to start losing the weight, we are going on holiday in May so I want to make sure I've lost some at least.

Cuckoo Cuckoo Cuckoo Forgot to put the Ham in the oven and have only just realised! It's a huge joint - so now will not be ready for Dinner! Not sure what i am going to have now!

For Lunch i had one slice of toast, topped with 2 slices of bacon (fat and rind removed)and one soft boiled egg. It was yuuummyyy!

I've also drank some green tea and plenty of water today!

Plus DD has had me dancing around the kitchen for half hour!

Hey hun, hope you don't mind me saying but I would spend that little bit more on some scales and get some electronic ones as they are a lot more accurate for weighing. I found them a god send when I did my WW's. xx

Aw out he is trying to stop you getting down to the next dress size so he doesn't have to pay up Wink

I'm sure he meant well really and one pizza isn't going to harm xx
