OK, so I have to do this. DD is 9 months old and I'm around 2.5 stone overweight (and short, so it looks even worse) I feel shit so I do want to do it.

Anyway, decided to start tomorrow, so for last few days have tried to stick to 1200 a day, which is the amount myfitnesspal set me (BTW anyone know how to change this, have tried to find a way, so far no luck)

I have failed miserably and feel that I have eaten fairly heathily, e.g Greek salad for lunch and then a mugshot, weetabix for breakfast yeasterday etc and a gallon of Pimms last night!

So now I'm dreading managing tomorrow, to top it off I'm doing the food shop and will then be indoors as too hot for DD, I will be going mad!

Sorry I've gone on but my main question is, what are the tips and motivations I can use to keep myself on the right track tomorrow, I'm a bit scared I will fail and then think, sod this, eat, feel worse - sure you al know the cycle! smile

Also, am I allowed 2000 a day on NF days??

no need to feel crap vulva, you've done 2 fasts this week! 5:2, right? Feel good about it. I usually stick to new eating plans for about a week before I just give up but feeling good about sticking with this one for 2 weeks so far. See the positives and all that.

Almost ate crap today as been in with DD but managed to stop myself, hooray!

One good thing about us being in - I was bored and purchased the 30 Day Shred on Amazon - eek.
