    Well every single year, I lose a pile of weight, only to put it back on again and then Im back to square one:crazy2:

    So yet again I have started Slimming World in the hope to lose a few stone in time for Christmas this year.

    Anyone else on a diet? any hints or tips, feel free to post them here!:thumbsup2

    Well this is one thread Im joining in with.
    Im the same Sue I lose it then pile it back on again. So Ive started today on a healthy eating plan - sort of following Slimming World.

    im trying to cut out bread altogether if I can.

    I also like some of The Hairy Bikers diet recipes

    OOh welcome aboard Gill, I have also given up bread, my weigh day is going to be every Saturday morning. I have started walking to and from work as well these past couple of weeks and Im really enjoying it. Its about a 3.5 mile round trip if I go the quick way and a 6 mile round trip the long way. I try to do both a couple of times a week. I listen to a podcast on my walk and it clears my mind and gives me a great start to the day.:thumbsup2

    I need to have a look at the Hairy Bikers recipes, dont think I have seen any.:goodvibes

    Well Im taking 3 steps forward and 6 back right now on the Slimming front, I just dont seem to have any will power to follow a diet plan at the moment. I have however increased my exercise and Im walking back and forth to work now so Im covering about 6 miles a day which over 5 days is good going for me. I also feel a lot better in myself with the extra walking as I do suffer from Asthma, and its def improved my breathing:dancer:

    Well doing quite well, lost 4.5lbs last week but that was after my 8th attempt to start:rotfl2:

    Health wise though I have to do it, as Im feeling really uncomfortable so Im determined to stick at it this time.:goodvibes

    Lost 22ibs so far since May and down 4.5% body fat. I'm not doing any set plan but following a programme called MPC which is mainly about an changing your lifestyle and getting active. I have gone from barely doing any exercise the past few years to doing 4 days of exercise routines, Zumba lessons and training to run the Disney World 10k in December. I have another 30ibs to lose which I'm hoping to lose before April when I go to Australia for my sisters wedding.

    Well done and good start. Starting is always the hardest bit for me I often manage a day or two then give up!

    8th attempt to start in a week???

    I know what you mean about feeling uncomfortable - I have a lot to lose (again!) but I'm not quite ready for a restart yet. However reading about your great loss in one week might help to motivate me. Well done to you Sue!!

    Jackieleanne 22lbs is amazing! Good luck with the 10K.

    Right Im on track here, re joined Slimming World and had my first weigh in last Thursday and lost 6.5lbs:yay: Thrilled to bits with that, although Im aware the first week is normally a higher loss. My next weigh in is Thursday this week so I will report back.

    I bought that new lo dough yesterday and made a pizza with it last night, it was amazing. Its not cheap £5 for two bases but I dont think thats any different to ordering a take away pizza.:thumbsup2
