My Weight Battle Begins NOW!!

Im looking for some inspiration and advice from all of you gorgeous girlies now and I really hope that you can help me.
In the last year, ive gained roughly 2 stone and its making me miserable. Its down to the form of contraception that im on I think but I also dont eat that healthily, ok hardly ever!!
I know thats really bad but I just dont like vegetables or salad so although I eat fruit, I also eat a lot of junk. 

 Ive got so many exercise DVDs (this one being my most recent) and all the exercise equipment you can think of but I just find it so boring and even though I really want to lose the weight, I just cant stick to an exercise regime.
I cant afford the gym but I do have a cross trainer and a rowing machine at home although ive found that my Jillian Michaels DVD works better than any of those!! Its only 20 mins a day for 30 days and theres 3 levels to chose from, im still on Level 1 and it hurts, trust me!!

Here is a comparison for you, me about 4 years ago, I know its a while but id LOVE to have this figure back!! And me now, although the hair and make up is better (what did I used to look like) im not happy with the thighs and bingo wings!!


The recent photo also hides well my main problem area, my tummy.
I basically just wanted to know any useful hints or tips from you guys or what motivates you to stay in shape?!
Ive tried Weight Watchers but as I work shifts, could never get to a class and the Dukan Diet was just too bland.

I want to lose 2 stone but my lovely boyfriend has told me that, if I lose a stone by christmas, then he'll buy me an iPad yipeeee!! Talk about an incentive!!

While on holiday this year in Greece with him, ive never felt so self conscious about my body and its a shame as it was our first holiday away together. I wore swimming costumes the whole time instead of bikinis and hated the way I felt.

This is the photo that made me decide that I HAVE to do something about it, my legs look awful!!

To end this rant on a positive, ill include a photo from our hol that I DO like :)

I hope you guys can help me as I really want to shift this weight and get myself an iPad!!

Current Faves

So I thought id start with my returning to my blog with a post on my current favourite products. These products ive been using pretty much everyday for the last month or longer and I love all of them!!

  •  Palmers Cocoa Butter - This is probably one of everyones beauty staples but ive only recently tried this and I love it. A friend reommended it as a great after tan moisturiser and its perfect at keeping my St Tropez looking good.
  • Samy Fat Hair "0" Calories Amplifying Hair Spray - If you havent tried this, you need to!! Its THE best hairspray that ive tried and its really great for backcombing as it gives great volume and lasts all day.
  • Clarins Water Purify One-Step Cleanser - Ive got through bottles of this stuff as its so quick and easy to use. I normally use a cleansing cream but this is so much easier to use and it keeps my oiliness under control pretty well.
  • OPI Sparrow Me The Drama - From The Pirates Of The Caribbean Collection, this is the perfect shade of pink and ive had a lot of compliments on it at work!!
  • Chloe Eau De Parfum - I wore this on my first date with my boyfriend and so it brings back nice memories :)
  • Mac Dazzleglass in Love Alert - I got this from the Bicester Outlet Village about 5 months ago. Id never tried one before but loved the colour and now its my most reached for lipgloss, definately need to get another one soon as ive not got much left!!
Have you tried any of my faves?! 
What do you think of them?!
