Week 1

Hi everyone. Week 1 done. 4lb lost. I'm feeling good about it. It's been a challenging week and my default would be to turn to food...but i didn't. This week i'm introducing exercise. I plan to walk 4 times this week 30 mins each time. More if i feel comfortable. Made soup this morning - chilli corn chowder - a SS recipe. Roll on lunchtime. I'm feeling ready to eat at mealtimes, not hungry just ready and actually tasting my food, too. This is a feeling i've rarely experienced as i have either not eaten, binged or grazed all day & night.

Thank you to all the people who gave me words of encouragement & advice. Here's to all of us staying positive and celebrating success. Have a good week.

Wow - well done you thats great. I am staring today so this has given me some encouragement. Keep up the good work.


Good luck, andie. Have a great week. ;)


Four pounds is fantastic! Four 30 minute walks sounds like a great idea. I was going for a 30 or so minute walk every evening at the start of the year and combined with healthy eating lost a stone. Unfortunately some unhealthy eating habits crept back in a I stopped walking, and have put the stone back on. I'm going to follow your example and start doing some walking again.
