So it wasn't as bad as I expected ...

I'm still a stone and a pound down from when I originally embarked on this diet in Jan 2007. Yes, its shit I've put 2½ stone back on, but I'm at a better starting point than I was before. The WW leader I've got this time seems really good too. So here goes. My goal (that I've set myself) is a stone by Christmas.

Here we go again ...

I'd given up dieting. Returned to eating whatever-the-hell-I-liked whenever-the-hell-I-liked. Last night a friend texted me and asked if I'd like to go to WW with her. I replied, "No, it would be money down the drain for me at the moment". Then I thought about it. She could be my diet buddy! I've not tried that for a while. I haven't even got on the scales since May. I think I've probably put back on ALL the weight I lost before. I know I've returned to feeling like a big fat slug who can't be arsed to get off the sofa.

So here we go again. A new WW meet, at a hotel on a Sunday morning. Not sure how this will work out.

I've been swimming

The diet's not going too badly, but I do feel rather empty. I'd love to stuff my face with crisps, Onion Rings would do nicely!

I went to Crown Pools (did they give the cleaners the day off cos its a Bank Hol). It stank of piss more than it usually does. I did 20 lengths and had a float about with the boys. They enjoy me being more active, that should be incentive enough.

At what point does exercise become fun?

I only have myself to blame. Jan 07 I decided not to be fat anymore. Within 6 months I'd lost 3 stone. Then I started to go up and down only a pound or 2, then I got back on it and lost another ½ stone. Then I gave up.

Now I have regained 2 stone. I guess I'm not starting from as bad a place but it feels like it.

I started dieting again yesterday and cycling to work again yesterday. Today I rejoined Weight Watchers.

My little car isn't as far along as it was but I'll get there!

I lost 2 pounds this week, so that's 9 pounds now in 3 weeks, which I'm reasonably pleased with. I'm still trying to eat mostly salad, but I've had pizza a couple of times in the 3 weeks and chinese once.

Katie's still doing fabulously. She only lost a pound this week, which was probably disappointing to her after losing 5 pounds each of the last 2 weeks. I think she's doing great though, that's 11 pounds in 3 weeks!! Well done Katie :)
