Diet Time

I am normally not a big fan on dieting.  I have to admit I love my food and growing up my Mum was always on a diet.  I felt I didn't want to be like that for years.  Always watching my weight but due to a health scare I thought I should really look at losing some weight.  I am a large cuddly woman and have become larger over the last 4 years.  Four years ago I managed to give up a 40 a day cigarette habit but I think that was the start of the weight gain.  Instead of craving for nicotine I replaced that addiction with sweet, creamy rich foods. I have decided to try the meal replacement meals.  I know alot of people have tried them and had loads of success but I know some people say they don't work.  What have I got to lose only weight.  Any way I have at least 40 kg to shift.  I am on day 2 and feeling pretty good.  I have started exercising.  Nothing major.  Thankfully my daughter has a treadmill and this amazing machine that I call the Fat Wobbler that I use.  She only lives a street away.  The weekend is here I am determined not to buckle under the pressure.  I have just finished my shopping and have loads of fresh fruit and vegies to tied me over.

Each week I will blog on how I am going and any failures I have had over the week.  I have put up a picture of what I look like now.  The photo isn't to old.

Wish me luck.
Have a great weekend.



  1. Good luck Sue, You can do it, I have lost 10kg this year so far, I am a bit off track at the moment and still have another 5 or 6 to go but we'll get there !
    Its the exercise that does really help too.

  2. Sounds like you are ready (in your mind) for this and that is half the battle. All the best Sue; I'm sure it won't be long before you start seeing the results of your efforts :-)
