Today was the first day of the diet and daily exercise routine (and boy were those ab crunches HARD!).
Hey Loodles! :wave Of course you can join in with us, everyone is welcome, no matter what time of the month it is. Weíll have a new May thread started by Mandy soon too, so youíll be able to hop on there too

Which diet are you doing? And well done on your exercise! Iíve been doing My Fitness Pal on my phone, which is calorie counting and it seems to be working great. My partner also left me last year and I also needed to shift my baby weight from last year also, so I know exactly how hard it is after that happens. I hope youíre in a better place now and can focus on yourself more

Looking forward to seeing you about on the threads

Only you girls (and the men) can relate to how frustrating this can be. Our next vacation still seems a while away yet and I am sticking in with my college course which can often be frustrating too ( little things always going wrong week after week) and I am not looking forward to the final exam in June (kids get 2 years of study before they take it we cram it in in a few weeks ) eek:/ I will keep trying to lose some weight but we will see...
Ah wifey, sounds like a tough month But we all have them and Iím sure if youíve put some back on, then itíll come off again soon enough once youíre sorted. I totally relate to how frustrating it can be though, my weight has always been a constant battle for me from being in my teens, I can put it back on so easily without even realising. Iím hoping doing it the way I am now will help me keep it off in the long run this time.

Sounds like youíve got pressure months coming up too with exams and college, which never helps, as you just grab things in between cramming in all the revision. Still, least you have a holiday to look forward to at the end of it all and Iím sure, whatever weight youíre at, that will be a fantastic trip!

Hereís hoping you can remain positive and weíre always about on the group if you need some encouragement and a little vent if itís a bad day. Hugs to you!

Well I managed to lose 2lbs over the past week so I'm happy.

This week hasn't got off to a promising start though as I've now got Tonsillitis. Forgot quite how much it hurt! So definitely not up for exercising at the moment as I'm feeling lousy. Hopefully in a day or so I'll feel better and in the mean time maybe the fact that its painful to eat will prevent me eating too much

Well done everyone that has lost weight in the past week, I have been really struggling, I gave up smoking 18 months ago mainly because I couldn't afford it, however 6 months after quitting I was diagnosed with Asthma and subsequently a mild form of COPD.

Whilst smoking I never had problems breathing or ever had a cough but I fell into the unlucky tiny percentage of people that develop Asthma once giving up smoking, but I would never ever go back.

Im now on daily steroids which doesn't help with the weight and to top it off I absolutely love my food.

However I have recently discovered walking, I now try and walk at least 12 miles a week and I'm trying to increase that as time allows. Ive lost 7lb in the last 2 weeks and I'm loving it. Ive seen some lovely areas around my home town that I haven't seen before even though Ive lived here all my life because I always drove everywhere.

Im doing this mainly to strengthen my lungs but the losing weight part is an added bonus for me, and I just thought I would pop on and share this with you

Well done on the giving up smoking! My MIL did a few years back and like you had a few health problems as a result. Unfortunately she didn't have your determination and went straight back to smoking.

I suffered with mild asthma as a child and exercise really helped me, so fingers crossed it gets you good results xx
