I fell off the WW wagon around October time but went back to my meeting on Wednesday (2nd). I was pleasantly surprised to find that I'd 'only' gained 6lbs in that time. However, it takes me back to July 2012 so I've basically wasted 6 months.

I'm taking it half a stone at a time so my first goal is to lose the 6lbs I've gained plus one more so that I'm losing new weight again.

We're back to Florida in August so I've got 7 months to shift it. I haven't got an end goal in mind but I think I would need to lose around 3.5 stone to get to an ideal weight. I can't see me ever reaching 'ideal' but 2 stone would be good.

So far I've been surprised by how quickly I've managed to get back into the swing of it all.

Good luck to everyone, lets hope we all reach our goals this year.

OK, I'm really, really, really joining in with this one! I have to lose about 4 stones and am a WW clerk, so I get lots of help and encouragement at my meetings. I can always use more to keep me on track. I go to the gym 3 times a week and put on 2 1/2 lbs over Christmas, so as above, first target is to get 3lbs off! Next Disney trip is November and I've pledged to lose just 2 stone this year - of course I'd love to lose the 4 stone, but I'm such a loser (but not in the good way!).

Hi Pam

Firstly, I'd like to say, you're not a looser at all, please try not to think that way, I'm sure you're great! Welcome to the Dis dieting thread, I hope you find some extra encouragement here...everyone is very friendly!

Through the year you'll pick up different tips and things to try and you can come on for a moan or celebrate when you reach a little target. I hope you reach where you'd like to be by the time your trip comes around! Looking forward to seeing you on the thread

Well due to over-indulgence at Christmas and not being able to exercise after an major op on my abdomen last year I need to loose 28 lbs.

My goal is for the beginning of May, and I'm just going to cut down on calories and get back to running.

Weigh in day for me will be Friday.

Good luck to every-one

Thank you Rachel. Spoken like a true Lancashire Lass! I feel better already. In fact we are off to the cinema and all I'm having is a cup of coffee! I'm impressed with myself!

Fantastic....and well done! Not the easiest place to go and resist temptation! I'll be going maybe next week with my Mum to watch Les Miserables and I'm soooo going to struggle with no popcorn or treats! Eeek!

Count me in AGAIN !!!!!! I am back up to my highest weight ever and need to sort my life out big time. I found some photos of myself from 6 years ago or thereabouts and I was shocked as to how I have allowed my acceptable weight to creep up like it has. I will never get back to what I was but I need to lose at least a stone and a half and would love to lose 2 stone.

Our niece is getting married in Venice in August and I don't want to be the fattest one there either .... so I need to start healthy eating and regular exercise as soon as possible ... and I am going to shop for healthy food today and try and go for a walk each day aswell.

My life has got to change and there is only one person who can change it

I plan to stick to a healthy diet ... mostly based on Slimming World plan, but will try to stop eating after 7pm ... and I will also use MyFitnessPal to keep track of the weight loss. I will weigh in on a Tuesday at work.
Exercise ... will try and take a walk every day and go back to Zumba class. Fortunately we don't have any holidays booked until the wedding in August so that should help.

Please come and find me on My Fitness Pal .... SarahTony2002 ... I need all the support I can get : )

Good Luck Louise, I think taking it 1/2 a stone at a time is a great idea, as you will be celebrating reaching your mini targets along the way

Good Luck Pam. You've done so well only putting on 2 1/2 lbs over Christmas, and you've already got an exercise routine in place. I think you've got the right mind set to do it

I have just weighed in this morning, and I am thrilled/shocked to only need to lose about 1/2 a stone for my next holiday

I know it's not a lot, but I'll still be here to encourage/motivate you

Good Luck Everyone !!!

This week I've STS but my fat percentage has dropped and my muscle percentage has gone up water and bone percentages are steady so a step in the right direction at least for me. I'm using lots of upbeat music when i work out, trying to keep up my positive vibes and remember why i am going this every day. Good luck to everyone stay healthy and let's look forwards and I will pop back next week for another weigh in.

Well done wifey!!

Mand, that's great! Hopefully all that Zumba-ing won't take long and the half stone will be done before it's trip time!

It's my first weigh-in in the morning I have to say I'm nervous. Even though I've logged everything on My Fitness Pal, I still am convinced it won't work for me and I'll have either put on or not moved at all! Oh well, all will be revealed in the morning!

Good Luck with this week everyone!

Well done everyone!!

Weighed in this morning and 0.5lbs down........was a bit disappointed but tbh honest sitting Uni exams until the 15th so Im totally out of any sort of routine and having ridiculous amounts of tea/coffee late in the evening. So im honestly not being very well behaved on my diet at the moment.
Roll on the 15th when I can get into a routine with getting out for walks etc.

But you know what, posting here is defo helping me to keep on track as I was so tempted to not even update/face the scales this week. knowing that that I really "had" to post here helped so much. Thanks guys
