Want to Lose Weight?

I was reading Diminishing Lucy's Lose Weight For Free Post and thought I'd jump on board too.

Given that I should lose about 25kg, I figured why not use the new year as a starting point? Yeah, yeah.....we've all heard that before. We've all tried that before. Only to give up within a few days. That's why I haven't made any New Year's Resolutions for the past few years. I always give  up.

One of the reasons I give up (apart from I can't be bothered anymore) is that I struggle to find recipes that we will all eat. I am not that great a cook. I can cook you a baked dinner or meat & three veg (sometimes even 6 veg). I can cook plain food whereas my husband seems to throw anything from the pantry into the pan & it comes out a masterpiece. The downside to this however, is that it is neither waistline nor budget friendly.

So I have signed up to My Special K & they are going to send me a customised eating and (dare I say it) exercise plan. Their recipes sounded tasty, shopable (is that even a word?), and cookable. The kids' tastebuds will be experiencing all sorts of new flavours.

2012 is my year. BRING IT ON!!!!

Join in - the more the merrier!

Happy New Year Everybody!!!!!!
