It’s been ages since I made an update on my weight loss – in fact I think it was a year ago, after little man arrived! I have been keeping up with it though; well, on & off. As you know, I use MyFitnessPal. Since I joined in January 2010, I have got on really well with it, and before little man arrived, I lost 50lbs, so I know I can do it. The thing is, just lately I’m getting a little bored of calorie counting now. I’m a very OCD person in certain areas so weighing and measuring everything is one of these, and it takes up too much time for me, and is a bit monotonous. 

After doing Live Below The Line, I now know that I used to snack more for comfort than anything, and just the fact that the food was there, not due to the fact I was hungry! Since LBTL, I snack a lot less, and after losing 6lbs during that week, have only gained 1lb back, so I am trying my hardest to maintain it, then lose. 

I’m currently looking at different diet plans which I can do online – I would prefer to do it on my own rather than go to a group, I know I can, I’ve done it before – such as Slimming World, Weight Watchers, and Tesco Diets. I know which most people would recommend, and I’m keeping it in mind, but like somebody said to me earlier, I have to find something that works for ME. 

I’m joining in with The Naked Mum’s Wednesday linky, so I will update you again next week!

  1. Good luck with your weight loss 🙂

  2. I find I snack more just by having it there too. It's much easier to just leave it in the shop isn't it?

    Good luck with your weight loss and see you next week 🙂
