    Right well this is very hard for me and i guess kinda really personal....

    Please dont laugh or make fun or judge me in anyway as this is a big step for me to own up to this...

    Ok so i wanna lose weight, well not so much weight but i guess what im trying to say is i want to drop a few dress sizes so i can be back to how i was before i got married to my violent husband... i wanna be back to ME. I also want to lose weight for one of my brothers as its his wedding in june next year. I want to look nice for it.

    So yeah anyway I weighed myself last Sunday 09.05.10 and i was EXTREMELY SHOCKED to discover I weighed.......... 14.8 stone (I'm a size 14/16 atm, i wanna be a reasonable 12 which is what i use to be before i got married.). I mean where the fuck did all that weight come from !!! Arghhhhh well I guess one could say its a number of things.... Having a child and having sever depression and being in a violent relationship.

    So I didnt wanna post this last week as didnt feel comfortable but I do now as all week ive cut back on my food loadssss and ive cut out unhealthy crap basically and ive just had a lovely shower and weighed myself again and guess what...............


    Ive lost 5lb in a week!


    Im going to try keep up with the diet as much as possible! And i'll post in here as much as i can throughout the week on my progress... Then every sunday ill post how much i have lost in the week...

    So yeah here goes and :eek:) Wish me luck xxxx
