Wow ! It's June, where has this year gone ? So how is everyone getting on with their diets ? I hope those couple of lovely weeks towards the end of May encouraged you to start wearing your shorts, summery clothes and to eat a bit healtier

Please share how you're getting on, whether it's good or bad. Let's see if we can give each other a little bit more encouragement and motivation now that the Summer is almost upon us

:wizard::wizard: Good Luck this month everyone :wizard::wizard:

For me, May has been an emotional month with extreme highs and lows. It started with my last minute holiday (which was amazing) and ended with hubby's dad's funeral yesterday

I've been to one zumba class this week and I've kept away from the scales, I now have my holiday weight and whatever I've put on over the last week due to comfort eating to lose. I will be back on track next week, but whether it's Monday or Wednesday due to the Bank Holiday, I'm not sure, but thankfully zumba is on over half term

:wizard: Good luck everyone :wizard:

Mandy, hope all went well yesterday :hug::hug:

We have brought our holiday forward from September to August, so I am trying my best to keep on track now as I have around 12 weeks to lose 2 stone, 1 stone will be great to lose before the holiday though,but i'm not going to put too much pressure on myself as that always leads to my downfall and I start really going off the rails!
good luck everyone for this new month hope you all do well! :wizard::wizard::wizard:

was thinking of you yesterday Mandy, hope it went as well as these things can:hug:

Good luck Jeanette with your goal, nothing like an upcoming holiday to focus your mind! Luckily I have over a year until my next trip.

As you know, I'm destined to be one of life's plodders so all I'm hoping for is that by the end of June I will have lost my first stone - that's only another 3 1/2 lbs so highly do-able. Next weigh in as usual on Wednesday and, thanks to working all day Sunday and Monday, not too much time to do any damage over the long weekend that everyone keeps talking about!

Well I feel like a beach whale not beach bod:sad2:I was doing really well then this week put 4lb on. Don't know why either which is why I'm down. Wouldn't mind if I had been out and raiding the chocolate but I haven't.
Charlotte lost one of her friends last week suddenly he was only 7. So tragic and tht has made me not eat so perhaps it's fluid.
Anyway Jeanette when are you in August? Mandy I don't know what's happened but :grouphug: from us to you.

forgot to say I have been missing for a little while as life got in the way however the last 2 weeks have been really good. Hubby and I signed up to my fitness pal and have been keeping a food diary, aiming for 1200 calories a day (hubbies is higher) and I have lost a 1lb each week.
The really good thing for me is when you update your days food it tells you what you would weigh in 5 weeks time if you keep up the work . good luck to everybody this month :wizard::wizard::thumbsup2

I am looking forward to my holiday in October to WDW and I really need to lose some serious weight and to get my fitness levels up as all that walking about carrying the extra weight is just awful.

So I am going to come here and look for some support when the chocolate is a calling.

Hi all,

Im back! and annoyingly have gained back 6 of the 10 lbs I had lost :( Darn it!
Was sitting exams all through May and I just fell right off the wagon! Getting back on today, so if anyones off the wagon use today to get back on with me :cool1:
Completed the womens mini marathon(for the irish cancer society) yesterday and gosh am I sore today! Anyone got any remedy's for sore muscles??

Also, just wondering what everyone is doing? I had been going to WW but I just havent got the time (or money, its 10 per week before you buy some branded goodies at the meeting) so as of this morning, I have downloaded a free calorie counting app........so my question is to count calories or points?(cue silly question of the century) does calorie counting work? What method as such, is everyone using? :banana:

Counting calories can work but its really time consuming. If you know how much weight watchers points you are meant to have for your size extra then you wouldnt have to go to the classes as such because you can work it out for yourself. Also asda and morrisons do eat smart foods that are ww pointed. Good luck.

Personally, I just try and cut back on the things that I know are bad for me. Eat a bit more healthily and try more excersice. Its not going to have the weight falling off me but it wont make me lose hope every time I have a chocolate bar either.

Hullo everyone!

I'm so glad I found this thread.... Sometimes, it feels as if I'm living on the UK Trip Planning Forum!

We're off for our first holiday to WDW for three weeks in August 2013 - and I want to loose about 6 stone by then (eeeeek).... so quite a bit of serious slimming needs to be done!

I've lost 1st 12lb so far, but loads more to go! It's a relief knowing there are others out there with similar goals :)

Well done on completing the womaens mini marathon, and for such a good cause too ::yes::

When I'm dieting I tend to just cut out sweets, biscuits, crisps etc (though allow one treat a day, like a Milky Way), and before I went on holiday I cut out bread too. I do zumba 2 or 3 times a week (which I love) and I have a treadmill too, which I need to get back on again

:wizard: Good luck :wizard:

Iv been doing SW but don't know whether to try WW. Trouble is I like my normal food not just the rubbish which I'm cutting down on and worry tht WW wnt be enough food. Anyone have any views. I don't do exercise which I know I should but have bout a AB pro trainer . I would live to try Zumba but worried abt my neck problems.

Weigh in Wednesday (it seems to come round so quick!). Lost 1lb so that's me up to 11 1/2lbs now. On course for the first stone to go by the end of June.

I follow WW - I tried SW but for me it was all about portion size. SW lets you eat as much as you want of certain foods (including potatoes) and I did so I didn't do very well. WW puts controls in place around portion size which is what works for me. I think both plans will work but you have to find the one that works with your particular issue(s).

I have done both and found both very restrictive but in different ways I think ww was better than SW though and their new propoints plan is more flexible than the olds point system. Good luck for the week :thumbsup2

well done to everyone - it sounds as though we're all on the straight and narrow for now. I'm happy to report a 2lbs loss this week which takes me to 131/2 lbs in total - and definitely on target to hit the 1 stone mark by the end of the month. It also puts me down into the next stone which feels so much better!

Well done everyone. You're all doing so well.

Count me in I need extra motivation and support. Been trying to lose for a while now but I've been up and down like a yo yo! I lost 1 stone on Slim Fast before I went to London in April but then three London trips later I managed to put it all back on. Lost a further 7ibs the past two weeks but from Monday I will be going on the South Beach Diet.

I ideally want to lose 2 Stone before October (my sisters wedding) and a further stone before next September when we go to Florida.

I go to the gym five times a week and also do Zumba and jogging (when the weather is nice). So hopefully I should start to see the weight drop off. :thumbsup2

For the first two weeks it is carbs/dairy and Alcohol and then after the first two weeks you are allowed to introduce them back in but in limited portions.

I actually love getting the exercise usually helps me unwind after a hard day's work and Zumba is so much fun. :)

Hi ladies :goodvibes I'd love to join in please as I feel motivated just from reading these pages. You're all doing so well and all support helps doesn't it :hug:

I'm going to Disney in September and I'd like to lose about 2 stone by then. It feels like such a big aim but I hope I'll get there if I stay focused.

Diet wise I'm a juicer! I follow the Jason Vale juice plan which means getting up early every morning and making a right racket in the kitchen juicing down all the fruit and veggies for the day. I have 3 juices during the day (really filling) and a healthy dinner. The first week I did it I lost 7 lbs!

Exercise is always a battle for me. I love it when I start but it's the getting started! I zumba and go to the gym a few times a week. DH is also teaching me to play squash at the moment. Really tiring and I'm covered in bruises but hopefully worth it!

For the first two weeks it is carbs/dairy and Alcohol and then after the first two weeks you are allowed to introduce them back in but in limited portions.

I actually love getting the exercise usually helps me unwind after a hard day's work and Zumba is so much fun. :)

:wizard: Good Luck Jackie, I will be very interested to hear how you get on over the next few weeks

Well done on all these weight losses. I'm saving my weigh day for later in the week as I only jumped on the scales on Thursday. I find it hard to resist the urge to get on them everyday.

I had my first real squash coaching session today (not just DH telling me what to do!). It was great but ooh do I hurt now. I just keep thinking about getting a peachy bum and toned thighs lol!

sorry, I've let the side down this week! Weighed in yesterday to find I'd STS. Not a disaster in itself but I feel such a failure as it means I haven't reached my goal of shifting the first stone by the end of June (only 1/2 lb short). There is no pattern to my weight loss. Since I started in April I haven't had any gains but losses range from 1/2 lb to 2lbs a week with a few weeks of STS in between. I basically do the same thing week in week out so I'm not sure why it's so erratic.

Was so fed up yesterday I had white bread and butter (well Clover Lighter) for my tea. Managed to get it all written onto my tracker and it's not done any damage. I did enjoy it but am paying the price this morning as I have had a bit of an achey tummy since I got up.

At least we'll be due a new thread on Sunday so I can put this one behind me!

Hello everyone!

Have been so inspired reading this thread so I'm taking the plunge and joining in (while eating a Belgian waffle just to get rid of it for starting to be good tomorrow:lmao:)

I joined SW in November last year and found it really suited me - I lost a stone and a half by January. Not long after that I relocated from Scotland to the West Midlands and it took me until May to join down here, luckily for me I had managed to stay the same. Since I rejoined I've had no motivation, have lost 4 1/2 lbs in 2 months and got another 11lbs to go to target! I've not following the diet very closely and have been just managed to maintain most weeks or lose 1lb here and there.

So to motivate myself I bought a beautiful pink weighted hula hoop to try hula-hooping some pounds away! Has anyone tried this? A few of my friends swear by it!

Weighing in on Thursday so fingers crossed for at least a half pound off!

Good luck everyone, looking forward to reading all your updates!

I can't hula hoop to save my life, but I have been known to use my dd's skipping rope (much to the amusement of DS!)

Alyson, I follow WW and sometimes I think I'm hungry but it's usually when I'm not doing anything constructive (like watching tv). You can always eat fruit at these times. Since April I've started eating a bigger variety of fruit and currently in my fridge I have blueberries, raspberries, melon, kiwi, strawberries, apples, pineapple, green grapees, red grapes and cherries! Costs a fortune but it's working. My other saving grace is rice cakes (which I eat in place of bread and it's very rare that I now have bread).

Not sure if I'm going to weigh in this week as I have my diabetes check up Wednesday morning so I'll be tight for time. Hopefully my blood tests will show a vast improvement to my blood sugar levels.

Hi :goodvibes

I don't seem to be losing any pounds but I'm definitely getting more toned up and losing inches. Still learning squash which is really working my muscles and going to the gym is helping too. Learnt how to use kettlebells last night as apperently they are really good for working your abs and tummy area as well as bum and thighs.

Everyone is doing so well and it motivates me reading all your posts.

lost another 1lb last Wednesday which takes me to 15 1/2 lbs (and have managed to either STS or lose every week so far, no gains since I started at the beginning of April).

Also really pleased to say that my diabetic check up went really well - I don't think the nurse could quite believe how far my blood sugar levels had dropped - she just kept shaking her head and saying wow! Having been at a high level (in the 80's or almost 10 in old money) I'm now down to 61 (which is around 7.7 in old money). I need to just reduce them slighty more (into the 50's/7.0) to get into the expected range. However in 4 months that is a brilliant result and I won't be going onto insulin again anytime soom!

Another weigh in tomorrow!

As I am now heavier than I was in January due to yo yo dieting for the past 6 months and as I now actually have a holiday planned ( a week in Disneyland Paris in October ) I am hoping to kick my butt into gear and am staring on the Slimming World plan today. I have at least a stone to lose and ideally a bit more.
I haven't done SW before but I hope it works for me as it seems to work for lots of people :thumbsup2

Thank you :thumbsup2 I did MFP for a couple of months and really found it worked but was rubbish at sticking to it. Once I have lost a stone I may well go back to it as it is more flexible than SW. Well done for dropping to a size 12 ... I look forward to being a 14 again :thumbsup2
