As we get older it can be harder to keep our weight in check. Its easy to decide to have an extra piece of cake, glass of wine, skip the gym session and before you know it you are a stone or more above where you want to be.
Ive previously lost over 10 stone in weight (147 pounds) but since breaking through the 12-stone barrier in December 2013 I continually battle with gaining a stone and a bit and losing it.

Ive got choices, and you do too – relax and feel happier, heavier or decide to make a change that will last.
The way I lost most my weight, following a Paleo diet – low carb, real food, one treat meal every 5 days worked for most of my weight loss but it didn’t work for the final 14-20 pounds, and this is the weight I struggle with.
But, ever determined, and having tried meal replacements, and the 5:2 diet, I’m now on a 30-day fat loss challenge, led by Scott Baptie. As he says, its what we look like whats most important, and how we feel, not a figure on the scale.
I started on Monday 13th March 2017 and next Monday Ill provide a review of this first week. What I can say is I’m eating well 3 meals and 3 snacks, of proper food. Today I had
Avocado on 2 slices of wholemeal bread for breakfast
Chicken and salad for lunch
2 oat cakes with peanut butter for lunch
Pork casserole with rice and green veggies for tea
Yoghurt with blueberries and linseed for supper
Plus, I have a further snack I could have had, but as I only went for a walk rather than do a weights session at the gym I’m aiming to skip this.
I feel tired, probably due to cutting out sugar. Ive also not had alcohol or cheese or butter.
I’m determined, and a weekly post will hold me accountable. Till next time, Denise x
