Well, as title says really.

I am the pround mummy to 2 boys, DS1 2 DS2 10 weeks, and have 2 stone to lose by christmas. I think with your help and support I have more of a chance of doing it.

Anyone care to join me?

Glass of Wine OK, (Just not the bar of chocolate that usually accompanies it!!! )

I've been abit naughty today, cheese sandwich and chips for luch, BUT was at Soft Play and had run myself ragged with DS1 so deserved it, then Sausages and Mash for tea.. (no Breakfast, naughty me)

I'm still within my WW points though, so not that bothered

I've only ever done WW, it's great as it makes you keep a food diary (a tracker) so you are aware of what you are eating, and as it's points based nothing is out of bounds, your just find yourself making more careful choices. This way you can also 'save' points for something special, so a meal out or an extra drink etc. You also can accumulate points by exercise.

Not sure about Slimming WOrld, never done it.

slimming world is different as you dont count what you eat, you just eat certain things on certain days, and there are syns for naughty things approx 15 a day

so today 'green day' limited meats lots of pasta, rice, pots, veggies, eggs, beans, pulses,

on red days limited pasta but lots of lean meats, eggs, fish, dairy, most vegs (not pots)

i like it

Had cereal, juice and a cup of tea for breakfast! Have started well and off to join WW on Friday!

Hi Snoopdog - I do remember you also! Infact I had been wondering how things went for you and was worried...so glad it all went well. Congratulations on your dd. It is just so overwhelming and unbelievable when you deliver after miscarriages.

Feeling motivated...at this very moment, subject to change
