I have just started healthy eating again - and hope to lose at least 3 stone this year and more next. I have at least 10 stone to lose which has crept up over the past 30 odd years! So am aware that it wont disappear overnight (as much as I would like, I have not got a magic wand). I hope to have encouragement from buddy's alike. Taking one day at a time.

I wrote this back in January 2010 - I have nearly achieved my 3 stone marker in just 6 months - which is unbelievable! I have literally taken ONE DAY AT A TIME - dont think of yesterday's wrongs or think of tomorrow - today is the important day.

Now it is 2012 - a new beginning. I wanted to lose weight for my Silver Wedding Anniversary - I achieved this, not as much as I would have liked but 3 stones (42 pounds) is a hefty amount to lose. I have put back quite a lot in 2011, having had a shock family bereavement could not motivate myself. But one year on and its time to take stock and take care of me! I still have the aim of not being in a wheelchair. Having been diagnosed with arthritis in both hips and at some point being replaced - oh gosh I dont like the sound of that one bit. So to lose pounds and take the pressure off those poor hip joints and ankle and knee joints too. I have found the Chair Exercise Team - how wonderful and cannot wait to get started and show my exercise minutes creeping up.

    Sounds like you are doing exactly the same as me - although I don't always have the 2 snacks or I use them for my dessert cals and eat that later! Bit naughty I know emoticon

    Chinese New Year banquet was yummy and I could have made worse choices. Had hot and sour soup, shredded duck and pancakes, scallops with ginger and spring onion, egg fried rice and a small banana fritter. Okay so the last two - not so good - nor the complimentary Baileys they brought round afterwards!! The Lion Dance was fun too. emoticon
