following: J9 Clark's own diet
performance: gaining 0.4 lb a week

I live in North Wales (UK). I'm a 44 yr mum of three. I am tall (5'11"), and have always been happy with my weight/size - until now!

Basically in the last 4/5 years my Weight has gradually crept up and up and up resulting in me gaining 2 stone and going up two dress sizes!

So I decided I can't carry on gaining weight it is time to loose weight and stabilise it where I am happy with it. I am counting calories and making adjustments in what and how much I eat.

Bloaty Tummy
Hi - I'm quite a newbie at this dieting - started two weeks ago tomorrow.
I only had a salad for lunch today (although it was in a cafe) so larger than my ones at home.............. I've got a really bloaty gurgley tummy feeling..............I ate the salad over 4 hours ago - does anyone have a suggestions why or even better any cures?

Am i eating too much salad? Is that even possible?!
Should I just have a light snack for tea tonight?

Many thanks for anyone who can make suggestions!

Hi Karolina
I think Sasha-Anne is right - you don't really need to loose any weight just when your at the gym next get some advise on exercises that can flatten your tummy.
You've done the right thing cutting down on fast foods so just eat healthy but eat well.

Sharing my Weight etc
I'm new on the site - it seems to be saying I'm not sharing my weight - not sure if my journal entries are being shared or not - I've gone into the profile page and it says I'm sharing with everyone...............has anyone else had this problem - does anyone know how I can fix it?
