hi can i join i really need the help

i would love to be able to join in the diet thread - pls

i joined ww 2 weeks ago and am going for my 2nd weigh in tonight

first week went pretty well and i lost 3.5lbs tonight i am hoping for another loss but getting through the entire day is oh so hard when you have a night time class

i have had a sneeky peek on my scales and it's looking positive but i know that can change throughout the day

in total i'd really like to lose about 2 -2 1/2 stone so i am realistic enough to know it's going to take some time

do you think 5-6lbs target a month is sensible? as that's what i was thinking off settting myself mini targets

Thanks guys, I felt proud that I'd done so well and that my dad noticed and was really pleased about it. I've got about another 2 and a half stone to go and I am going to get there and more importantly - stay there

Good luck to every one this month, if any of you are struggling at the moment, don't focus on what happened last month, or last week. It's a new month and you can do it.

Aargh!!! I can't believe it's May already!!!

Just quickly calculated I have 7 weeks until my birthday when I want to be at my target weight so time to get serious!!!

I so wish I'd worked that out before I had a MacDonalds brekkie and about a gallon of fruity Pimms but hey, it's a bank holiday!!!

So, fellow members of Nat's Fat Club, good luck for the rest of the month!!!

And a round of applause for Jakki on being April's Slimmer of the Month!!!


You're making your Dad so proud, hun...

Welcome
You'll be made very welcome here on the DIS diet thread
Many who contribute are dieting with WW so you'll get help and support that follows along with the WW program

I personally think it's a great idea to set mini targets for yourself, but always having the bigger picture at the back of your mind. 5-6lbs a month is a really sensible target

Good luck with your second weigh-in

You've done so well Jakki - congratulations

I have just weighed and I have lost 2lb - very happy with that Even though I had my six week diet break I have now lost a stone since Jan
Another six pounds before DLRP in three weeks would be great.

Good luck going foward everybody

Hi Guys

Well it's taken 1 year and 1 month, but I'm back. I lost 4.5 stone last year before my holiday to the world in April 2008. Since I've been back I've managed to put 1 stone and 4lbs back on so starting tomorrow I'm back on my diet as enough is enough. Over the weekend I visited Endsleigh Garden centre just outside of Plymouth and they had a fantastic range of Weightwatchers food, so I stocked up and decided to get back on the diet.

Good luck everyone

Tina

Welcome and well done with your weight loss so far - sounds like you're off to a great start... Your monthly target sounds pretty sensible to me - I'm a big fan of the slow and steady approach... Good luck for your weigh-in later!

Hi Tina! Good for you getting back on that dieting wagon - that's always the toughest part IMO... I'm sure you'll lose the extra pounds in no time as you were so successful before. Best of luck for the upcoming week!

Welcome to the diet thread, I'm also following weight watchers. Your mini goals are a great idea and easily achievable. Well done on last weeks loss and good luck for tonight.
