I am starting this blog to help to motivate myself even more on this weight loss journey. I started just after Christmas 2009 and I know it will be a long journey but one I lknow will be worth it in the end. This has been a long time coming....

Bean has now been cooking for 16 weeks, and according to the fountain of all useless knowledeg that is the internet,is now approximately the size of an avacado... So far my cravings have been pretty mundane. I've "needed" orange juice, melon, grapes, marmite and orange tango over the past 4 months, so nothing exciting at all! The new ones I have developed a need for over the last couple of days are chilli doritos, chocolate in any way shape or form, and now tuna mayo. More specifically jacket potato with tuna mayo, but I'm not fussed how it comes to be honest! I cannot stop thinking about it and its driving me insane! I escaped work earlier on to pick up some veg for in tonights curry, and didn't make it past the sandwich fridge in the entrance in Asda as the tuna was calling me! I really don't think I have EVER eaten fish of any variety before 10 am before today... The healthy eating is going much better so that's one thing off my mind, I have even planned to make a WW red thai curry tonight which I'm really looking forward to making. Healthier options are worming their way back in I'm very pleased to say, yesterday I chose an apple juice instead of a scrummy hot chocolate in M&S Cafe, and then a little pack of carrot sticks and humous instead of a yummy giant bun. Please excuse me whilst polish my halo...... hahahahaha. The one thing I am really struggling with is my ever increasing size. I am wanting to embrace it and be proud, but in actual fact I find myself feeling frumpy and thinking that I look like I've just put weight on rather than having an actual bump. I know that it's due to me getting used to shrinking in size and celebrating that, and now growing in size is going completely against all that thining that I'd conditioned myself into. I just hope that my head catches up soon.... Right I'm off for a cup of tea, as I have also developed a liking for that too! Lex xxx

    BTW, I meant to say on your last post that if there are any specific recipes you want from the WW site let me know - I can send them to you via Facebook or summat.
