 Hello everyone!

Welcome to Losing with Lou! 

Have you ever had that moment where you are looking in the mirror and just feel so helpless and lost and annoyed with yourself? I have personally had it thousands of times and every time that I have it I feel worse than I did the time before. I always react by going on some fad diet, losing a ton of weight and then putting it all back on again. I have been doing it for twenty years now. I honestly must have lost 100 stone in my lifetime. 

Last month, January 17th to be exact, I had a moment. It wasn't a pretty moment. There were tears, ugly crying tears, snottiness, flab pinching, self hatred, oh the whole shebang. In hindsight I think it was a combination of things: another lockdown, the postponement of our wedding, guilt that I had put weight on during the last lockdown etc...

So I decided that I was going to do something completely different this time! No more restrictive diets for me! No more shakes and bars, just simple calorie counting and exercise. The weight comes off slower, but I calculate that 2lbs a week can equal over 7 stone in a year, which is five months before my wedding! 

So three weeks in, I have lost 10lbs, which I am very excited about. 

The purpose of this blog is to share my journey, hold myself to account, and if anyone would like to join me on my journey, please do and share your progress with me!!
