Over the last 7 years I have been on so many diets.
I lost 3 stone at one point and got to a size 12, by eating a daily diet of 1 slice of bread (crusts cut off) topped with low fat Philadelphia and cucumber slices, diet coke and chewing gum. I was 15. As you can guess it piled back on quickly.
Since then I have tried various diets or attempted to eat better and whether for a lack of time, money or willpower, any weight I have lost has returned.
I am hoping that if I post what I am doing every day or every few days then the wiser, more successful weight losing individuals out there will be able to offer me some advice on what to change or what to keep doing.
I am 21, miserable about how I look, desperate for the confidence I had when I was slimmer and tired of not being able to wear what I want to wear. I don't want to feel embarrassed when I go food shopping, imagining people are looking at me and scrutinizing the contents of the trolley. I don't want to hate clothes shopping. I want to look back at pictures and think 'that was such a good day' rather than 'I look terrible'. I don't want to be skinny, just healthy for my size.
Anyway that is enough rambling.
Today I have eaten:
3 caramel flavoured rice cakes.
A salad with 3 slices new potatos and an egg, with a little salad cream.
2 handfuls of crisps (chips) - salt and vinegar kettle crisps.
I have drunk a glass of water and a bottle of coke zero.
I also walked (albeit very slowly) for about an hour.
I've eaten badly today (this isn't a typical day for me), but I'm too tired to prepare something better. I think I am going to have some rice and chicken for dinner. I use a diet plate to control my portions at dinner time.
Any advice will be welcome
