THE diet. Week 1.

So, I have decided that I want to shift 14lbs (1stone) OR become a size eight, which ever happens first. I have also decided to blog about this so that I have more motivation. I cant just start this and not finish it, right? Well, I hope not!

Starting figure:  Proving to the world that we don't all look like the girls in magazines. 

I'm going to follow the Weight Watchers diet. Therefore, I am allowed 29 pro points a day. And if you're unsure of the point system, each portion of food you eat can be turned into points by using the Weight Watchers calculator, or if you buy Weight Watcher products it will have the points on them (I know that Tesco and Morrison do a healthy range which also has the pro point system on them). The system calculates the points using the amount of protein, carbohydrate, fibre and fat in the product.
Here is a calculator I use for free on-line, be sure to use the UK calculator (second one down):

Age - 19
Height - 5ft 2in
Starting weight - 9.6st
Starting dress size - 10

So, here goes! This is week one! (Mon 26th Sept) Wish me luck!

So this was day one, the day your supposed to be most motivated. It went okay, UNTIL I met my boyfriend for dinner! I decided to have a pasta dish, Bacon Carbanora, thinking it was quite healthy. Anyway, all was good. Then I got home and went on the restaurants website to get the nutritional value to calculate the points. I was mortified!! Sooooo many calories and fat!
Overall, the day went well EXCEPT that stupid  pasta dish! Better luck tomorrow!                            

After the rubbish start I had on Monday I thought I'd do really well today and I did. The only down side, I ate a piece of cheese cake be mistake! A gentleman at work gave it to me, I said thank you and starting eating. Then all of sudden, half way through I remembered I was on a diet. What was I supposed to do!? Say it was horrible and stop eating? Nope, I just had to eat it. But I went online after to find the values and APPARENTLY its not too bad.

Well, today has been okay. But I am now realising that there is more calories and points in food than I thought. So I am now having to change my eating plan a little. I am going to cut down on the carbs, they are no good! And I am also going to calculate calories and points BEFORE I eat the food. Why I didn't do this before I don't know, I think I just assumed the calories/points but then after calculating it, I was shocked. Never mind, tomorrow is another day. 

Overall, today was good. I took oxtail soup to work for lunch (5points 160 calories WINNING) but turned out to be disgusting. So not having anything else to eat, I drank an energy drink that I had in my drawer. Not so winning. But hey, I only had 28 points :) However, I know that I have to do some more exercise but I only like going to the gym and without a car its near on impossible. Good news though, I get my car next week. I get gym next week :)

Well today was quite good. I did end up having a fattening dinner but I didn't eat a lot throughout the day so I kind of saved up my points/calories for my dinner. Therefore I didn't go over my 29-point-allowance :)
I also had a sneaky go on my scales and I weigh 9.3st, meaning I've lost 3lbs so far!! So happy! :D

Today went very well as I stayed at my boyfriends (he is a fitness freak!) and we went into a local town, he went to the gym and I had my nails done, done some shopping and just stayed busy. This always helps me as im a boredom eater! However, his dad did cook us tea and I have no idea how many calories or points it had it in. It was a pasta based meal so I just had to guess. Hopefully tomorrow is a good day! Its the ending day of my week and the weigh-in!! 

Well, today is weigh-in day!! I just weighed myself and I weigh 9.2st!! So happy that I have lost 4lbs! I had a rocky start, haven't been as strict as I should have been and the level of exercise was non-existent! However, I always find I lose the most weight in the first week of any diet so we will have to see what next week is like. So far, so good! :D

Weight on 26th September: 9.6st 
Weight on 2nd October: 9.2st
Total loss: 4lbs!!! :-D
