I'm not sure what can be done in the space of 24 days but I'm lucky in the fact that I don't have any Xmas nights out or anything lined up (who would have thought there was at last an advantage to being skint !)

I lost around 11lbs during the summer doing the 5:2 but have put it back on and then some - not because it doesn't work but because I've been eating anything and everything. I'm 5ft6 and 10st 6lbs according to the scales this morning. I'm going to log on here every day to keep a record for myself.

Will also record my measurements just as soon as I've found the measuring tape grin

I lost 5 stone this year low carbing/paleo

It's creeping back on funnily enough because I seem to be over dosing on carbs! Bread,pizza,mince pies

I've also got a job! So my exercise regime has all but stopped. It's depressing but I know what I need to do

Right, just dug out the tape....

Waist: 29" Hips: 39"

Not too fussed about my bust as I don't have particularly big boobs so hoping I won't lose too much from there anyway.

Just had breakfast

2 boiled eggs and 2 kallo rice cakes

Lunch: 2 X gluten free oatcakes and hummus & a pear

Dinner: Prawn & veggie stir fry with 45g rice

And lots of water...

Also aiming to cut out all wheat, sugar and dairy. I did this a few years back and felt so much better. I know this obviously cuts out calories too but there are about 8 of my relatives who have been diagnosed with celiac disease in the last 10 yrs (Mum is also lactose intolerant).

I was just thinking about this today.

If anyone is interested, I found I lost lots of weight before by cutting out all the junk and eating carbs at only 1 meal.

I did porridge for breakfast then no carbs for the rest of the day. Snacks were natural live yoghurts if I was desperately hungry (sort of Zoe Harcombe style)

I've cut out wheat recently and started sticking to 3 meals a day but I've hardly lost any weight so I'm going to do the above til xmas when we have a big family get together.
I really don't want everyone to see me this fat. Even losing half a stone would make a difference to me as I have a big belly and I'm not very tall.

don't forget lots of exercise too!! and water...

Morning all...weigh in this morning and I appear to have lost a pound. Down to 10st 5lbs. Did 10mins of yoga to get me moving and will do the full dvd later. I'm trying to be realistic...I've swore blind that I'm going to do The Shred every day and after 2 or 3 days I'm in agony (my knees can't take it).

Have a good day everyone.

Have had a pretty crap week. Not been feeling well and woke up the last two morning with my eyes stuck together because of conjunctivitis and my period is back after only about 12 days. Hormones are all over the place just now. Weighed myself this morning and I'm still 10st 5lbs. Could be worse, but could be a lot better.

Breakfast today is porridge with some blueberries and raspberries

Lunch is banana and small serving of sushi

Veggie chilli with rice

And lots of water.

I'm weighing myself on a Sunday. Was good yesterday and have been good so far today....will allow myself a wee glass of wine tomorrow as a treat. I need it by a Friday. How did you get on this morning ? My friend has lost about 1.5 stone on WW so it can definitely work.
