    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!

    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 :sad2::sad2:

    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 : )

    :wizard: 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 :)

    :wizard: 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 ::yes::

    Well said Rachel :thumbsup2

    :wizard: Good Luck Stacey, have you set a mini target ? Good luck at your first weigh-in

    :wizard: Lots of Luck hun, I like you're way of cutting down will help you save for your next trip too ::yes::

    :wizard: Good Luck Sarah, the wedding will be a great incentive to lose weight, I hope you'll be feeling fabulous for 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 :banana:

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

    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!! :yay:

    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 :eek: 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! :goodvibes

    Well done everyone!! :cool1:

    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 :thumbsup2

    Can I join?? :)

    I only have 1/2 stone left to lose but it's always the last bit that's the hardest :sad2:

    I've been following the 2 day fasting diet since September and seem to loose about 1/2lb a week but at least it's coming off not going on!

    To date I've lost 8lbs as I had 2 weeks of DDP during that time which was not good for the scales! :rotfl2:

    My weigh in is usually a Thursday mornings

    I've gotten into the habit of having vegetable soup for lunch.

    Nice and healthy and tasty. :)

    I do have to have a bit of bread with it as I am super hungry otherwise, but I've changed my work snacks to banana and apple juice and sometimes a yoghurt with granola if I'm starving.

    Well done on any losses this week so far! :)

    I'm pleased to report I got on my scales this morning and I've lost 3lbs! :thumbsup2 I was super pleased, even though it's only week one for me and the majority will most likely be water loss.

    Onwards and downwards I say! Good Luck to anyone yet to weigh in this week!
    My loss has spurred me on now, must keep it up and going! :hyper:

    Can I join please?? I'm going to be fifty in November, and have decided that I'm not going to be fat and fifty!! Joining Slimming World tomorrow (lost 4.5st with them 3 years ago, let it all creep back on!!) Not going to let it happen again.
    In reality, I need to lose 6st, but 4 is my target by November, then the other 2 later. Will see how it goes.
    I'm not good at fitness - can't run, hate the gym, but am going to aim for 2 brisk 30 min walks a week for now. OH has downloaded Garmin Fit onto his phone for me.
    Fingers crossed for tomorrow.

    :cool1: Well done on your 0.5lb loss, that's great considering you're probably so stressed at the moment :wizard: Good Luck for your next weigh-in, and with your exams too

    Off course you can join in too Janet. Yes that last half a stone can be a pain to shift, but slow and steady wins the race :) :wizard: Good Luck with your next weigh-in

    It sounds like you've got into a healthy frame of mind Victoria ::yes::

    :dance3: Yay ! Well done Rachel, that's a great loss, keep up the good work

    Welcome to our dieting thread Eliza. I'm the big 5 0 next January and plan to be the healthiest I've ever been, especially when I was at my worst for my 40th ! :wizard: Good Luck at Slimming World, I hope you reach your target for November ::yes::

    I'm back on the diet too. I started 6 weeks ago but took some time off to enjoy Xmas and new year.
    I'm also doing WW from home, managed to lose all my baby weight with them last time. This time I'm aiming to lose around 3 stone which is a combination of baby weight from my 2nd (now 13weeks) and I gained a lot of weight when I was in hospital with Sepsis as I was given Steroids.

    So far I've lost 13lbs so nearly at my first 1stone :) I'm going to Centre Parcs for my birthday in Mid march so I would like to lose another stone by then. Hopefully off to WDW in Sept (have a Disney cruise booked) so want to be at goal before then.

    Good luck to everyone else :) xx
