New Year's Resolution diet group- please join!


I wanted to start a group for those of us who will be making a new year's resolution to lose weight or get fit. I thought we could all support and encourage each other, and post our progress regularly to keep ourselves accountable. Who's in? All welcome.

My name is Erin. I am 39 (40 in February) and have four kids (10, 8, 5 and almost 2).

I need to lose around 30 pounds. My first goal is to lose ten pounds by Valentine's Day. I think that's reasonable, it's a little over 6 weeks.

I'll post my weight and measurements on January 1.

Also wanted to add that I live in Alberta, Canada. I do intend to post regularly and reply to others but please be aware of the time difference.

Count me in!!!

I'm 24 but currently on prednisolone steroids so it's making me gain weight due to increase in appetite. I've gained a stone in 12 weeks I intend to lose that asap! Slimming world works well for me.

I'm currently around 11stone5 and I want to be around 9stone 7

Does anyone else's belly stick out ? Lol! I look about 5 months pregnant due to bloatedness x

I'm in! I was able to lose a good portion of the weight after my daughter was born, but I've slacked off after a series of events derailed me, so I'm pretty sure I've put on some more pounds. My goal is 15-20 lbs depending on how much I've regained (been too scared to step on the scale). I calorie count on MyFitnessPal and use a Fitbit Flex to track activity/calorie burn.

Good luck, ladies!

Yay! Glad to have buddies!

I was doing well for a while- lots of exercise, eating well, managed to lose around 12 pounds. Then a series of events happened. Chief among them was my grandfather's death (he was 93 and went peacefully in his sleep, but still sad) and I responded with emotional eating. And then all the goodies of the holidays contributed. I have put on around 15 pounds and lots of it is in my stomach. I don't think I look pregnant- just very flabby with a big spare tire. It's at the point that most of my tops don't fit. They pull up revealing my belly rolls. Yuck. Must take action now (or tomorrow, ha ha).

I'm in! I keep saying I'm going to diet but always find reasons not to.

So I'm Michelle, I'm 28 and want to lose around 16lbs. Plus start exercising to attempt some toning up! I currently weigh 10st2lb and I'm 5'9"

I am also looking to loose weight and get fit. My DH is doing it too which should help. I need something easy to stick to so am looking into slimming world. I also need to find a form of exercise that suits me.

I am hoping to loose around 1 stone. Maybe a few pound more.
