Default Time to Lose 10lbs

When 1 January rolled around, I wanted to lose 5lbs as one of my New Year goals. I got off to a good (ish) start, but after about a week life just sent my diet out the window. I'm in a new relationship (now of three months) and it's been a cycle of romantic dinners and skipping the gym for cosy nights in with my new man (not that I'm complaining! I'm very happy!) and I also had some unexpected careers changes which have been stressful and sent my eating habits a bit hirewire - and that's just for starters!

But in short, that 5lbs I was meant to lose is now 5lbs I've GAINED!!! So now I'm looking to try and lose 10lbs instead. I have an important event on 1 May, so I would like to have lost a few lbs by then, even though realistically I won't be able to lose the lot by then.

This post is really just me declaring my intention to lose weight so I can share my story and be accountable.....And to say, nice to meet you! =)

Welcome! It's always good to say it out loud. What approach are you going to take to get rid of this 10lbs?

Thanks for your support!

With my lifestyle at the moment (e.g. new relationship, being in a job where I'm often eating at courses and with clients, etc), I know that I'd struggle to stick with a strict diet plan, so I'm focussing on just making sensible choices (like bringing a wholegrain sandwich or salad with me to work, instead of grabbing a bagel from the cafeteria - a bad habit of mine!) and trying to fit in more exercise.

Have you ever thought of taking an evening walk or go hiking with your new hunny instead of one of those cosy nights? Or go on an active date (skating, bowling, miniature golfing)? You can do this! You can wear a pedometer, too!

Great ideas! We actually do a bit of that already, especially hiking, but I'll definitely be encouraging us to do it more often! =)
