    I thought it might help me and inspire me to actually loose some weight; If I keep an online diary as such.
    So here goes:

    I'll title each week and just keep editing the thread until the start of the next week. Rather than creating loads of endless new posts for everyday.
    This way I can put my measurements/weight at the start of each week to compare improvements easier!

    I am 5'3. Female. 19.
    I used to be 8 stone, a competitive athlete, slim and toned. I used to lift weights and exercise for 2 hours daily.

    Now I am a straight A college student with no time for exercise. I buy cheep unhealthy food cause I am too busy/poor to get something healthy. I have gained about 2 stone and I am not fat really... (a size 10)... but I am not slim and I do want to get back to how I used to be.

    So hopefully within the next weeks/months to come I'll start to see improvements

    PROGRESS:
    As of 10th Feb, friday.

    WEEK 1:
    weight: 10 stone 5 pounds.
    BMI: 27.83.
    Waist: 32'' / 83cm
    Chest: 38'' / 99cm
    Under chest: 31'' 82cm
    Top of arm: 11'' / 29cm
    Thigh: 23'' / 60cm
    Ankle: 8.5'' / 21cm
    Wrist: 6'' / 15cm
    Hips: 40.5'' / 103m.

    WEEK 2:
    weight:
    BMI:
    Waist:
    Chest:
    Under chest:
    Top of arm:
    Thigh:
    Ankle:

    Pics please :yep:
    I'd rather not post pics if that's okay. I just want this to be a personal blog... to keep me determined since Its online. I might post pics soon, but I'm not completely sure, since I don't want real life friends/family to know about this... so I'd rather not post anything just yet.

    This is a great idea!

    Im also not fat but recently have started to gain a little weight. So I just feel that I need to start watching what I eat and start exercising..

    To keep me determined stick to my routine, I signed up to do the sport relief 6 mile run. It'll help me do something good for charity as well as help me to lose weight and become a fitter person.

    It's definitely worth taking pics, if only for your own comparisons(I don't like putting pics online either, so rarely do). Best of luck also!

    Thank you for commenting! Thats a really awesome idea! I might sign up to something, I do race for life most years... I think I might sign up to a more frequent thing though, maybe start one of the sports I used to do again, not competitively again, but surely I'll find a non-competitive club somewhere that will keep me motivated

    Yes I know, but I still don't feel comfortable about it. This is just for my self satisfaction, so posting honest measurements weekly will be enough to keep me motivated if I can see them going down

    Can i use your diary to also report my own progress?

    Maybe we could compare ourselves to each other, and it could help us to both stay motivated.

    Cool,

    I'll start posting on what I've ate from tomorrow..

    I'm 20 year old boy, 5, 11ft tall. I weigh 11 stone and one of the main reasons I'm starting to watch what I eat is because I'm starting to get a big pregnant looking belly of fat which I think looks horribleee!!

    So yeah, from tomorrow onwards or I'll start my food diary.

    Yeah, it's only been 1 day and I'm finding this really useful. Agreed with the motivation thing, its actually been on my mind today.

    Your doing really well, keeping up with your exercise. I really need to start doing more of that.

    Sunday:
    Breakfast: Omelette with 3 slices or toast, cup of tea.
    Lunch: Chicken soup + bread
    Snack: 1 pack of skittles (again)
    Dinner: Fish & Chips

    Exercise: 20 Minute run

    There might be more to add later, the super bowl is on and i suspect I'll be junking on a lot of food later in the night..

    Thanks lizziefree! To be honest i didn't have my lunch or breakfast in an attempt to be healthy. They were just thing that i wanted and the good eating thing just worked! lol

    I had a pretty bad night of eating whilst watching the Superbowl.
    > 2 whole packets of oreo biscuits
    > 4 glasses of milk
    > 2 Muller yoghurt's
    > 3 Milky way chocolate bars.

    Now that I'm writing it down i'm actually amazed at how much i managed to eat! Pretty surprised at how I'm not fatter!

    You've had a good another good days worth of exercise, Keep it up! I've only managed about 20 minutes with a skipping rope today! Eager to get my bike out once this snow and ice clears the streets.

    MONDAY:
    Breakfast: Krave cereal, one glass of milk.
    Lunch: Kinda skipped lunch today.
    Dinner: Chicken Karahi with naan.

    Might have a little something before bed also

    Also had a Martini at around 6ish, before dinner. (Yes, I've just learnt that it's definitely NOT a good idea to have reasonably strong cocktail on an empty stomach! Felt very tipsy ish for a while afterwards )

    Sounds like you did better today though Zeesh
    Looks like we both kinda skipped lunch :P Which isn't too good as small regular snacks actually help keep your metabolism going! But you had a good breakfast which will have kicked it off anyways (:

    I had temptation to buy a chocolate bar a couple hours ago and then stopped myself!! So I'm quite happy about that lol :P
    I almost drank a summer fruits koppa berg cider that I found in my fridge earlier, but then decided on the Glitter Berry J2O instead lol.
