1st weigh in – Happy Heart

Drum roll please! This morning was my first weigh in on the Happy Heart Plan and I am pleased to say that I have lost another pound. As always with me this could have been more if I could just rein it in a bit at the weekends.  This Saturday I had friends round for…

Online lectures – Happy Heart

When you sign up for the Happy Heart course you are given access to a large amount of online content; recipes and rules of the plans, along with online lectures. New lectures are released each week and tend to consist of a five minute video on the topic, presented by Stephen and David, some text…

First impressions – Happy Heart

Two days into the Happy Heart programme and already I feel so much more comfortable with the plan than I did with Weight Watchers.  This is in no small part because it is designed by Vegans (well 99% Vegans) for Vegans and because you can eat as much as you like (within the guidelines) which…

12 diets, 12 months – Happy Heart

So today I must leave Weight Watchers behind me and start the second of my twelve diets in twelve months. This month I have decided to follow the Happy Heart plan.  This is a four week online course which was originally designed to help reduce cholesterol but now claims to help with the reduction of…

The autopsy – Weight Watchers

My month on Weight Watchers has come to an end and I can report that I have lost 3lbs, 1 inch and 4% body fat.  Not an earth shattering amount it’s true, but it has been a funny month for me (birthday weekend away and a weeks foreign holiday) so I cannot honestly say that…

When did life get so hard?!

I like to think that I’m a positive person, I don’t tend to have ‘downers’ or dwell on the negative stuff.  I’m the optimist who signs up for crazy sporting challenges, because of course I’ll be fit enough and thin enough to run a marathon or cycle 100 miles in six months time because this…

2nd weigh in – Weight Watchers

It was always going to be a big ask ….. Saturday was my birthday and, as always seems to be the case, the celebrations started on Wednesday with a meal out with a close friend and didn’t end until Monday morning when my hubby went back to work. Therefore I should probably be happy that I…

Night time nibbles …

This post is not as exciting as it might first appear!  Instead it is the confession of a night time snacker, or perhaps it would be more accurate to call myself an evening nibbler as I haven’t yet resorted to raiding the fridge while the rest of the family sleeps. It is fair to say…

Portion sizes – part two

Further to my post about Portion sizes, I started to wonder if there was such a thing as a Portion Size Diet, after all there is every other type of diet out there. A quick Google search led me to the Beach Body website and their ’21 Day Fix’ diet: It’s not another diet. In…

1st weigh in – Weight Watchers

Today saw my first weigh-in on my “Twelve months, twelve diets” challenge and my first weigh-in on the Weight Watchers plan. I am pleased to say that I lost 2lbs.  Pleased because if I could lose 2lbs every week on my challenge then I would hit my goal weight before the twelve months were up…
