This new to me mini Malden has started its organiser life as a diet and weight tracker. I aim to lose some weight and this baby is going to help me.
The first section shows which weight range I should be in for my height. I'm only a little overweight but I aim to be in the middle of the healthy band.
After that I aim to have my own graph charting, hopefully, a downward trend in my weight. The weigh-in will be weekly. Any upturn will influence my future goals. At the moment it is eat fruit for afters, no biscuits, chocolate or any calorie laden food and no alcohol.
Next section houses any recipes that I come across on my Internet travels which will help me fulfil my goal.
In order to make the ideal meals I need a list to remind me to shop for the right ingredients.
Finally the last section houses a pull out week on which ...
I can record my meals. From this I can set myself the next week's goals and tell myself off if I fail to keep on track.
I also have in there somewhere a body measurement chart (waist, thigh, arm, hips etc) which will graphically show my changing body shape!!!!!
Another incentive is a page promising me small treats or presents if my weight loss stays on track. My first 5 lb loss will give me permission to buy some coloured Pilot Frixion pens. It's early days yet but I aim to get there.
