I'll join! Right now going to start nightly walks and.cut back on processed foods. But in the next few months I'll be starting a heath program through my doctors. Its either a gym and weight watchers or just weight watchers...both with a nutritionist, so I'll lose faster then. I need to lose about 30 lbs to be back in the weight frame, id love to lose 50, but I'll set my goal for 40 for now. I have already lost 77lbs since coming off a medicine I'm also going to try my fitness pal! Good luck ladies!

So glad to be here where we can vent, share and hold each other accountable!

My first day went... "Meh". Too much sugar and a smidge too many calories though still in the weight loss zone. Didn't get any exercise though, missed yoga thanks to work. But I'll be burning lots of calories later this week helping a friend move so that will be good.

How did everyone's first day go?

Hi ladies
Would it be ok if I joined you too? I've got approximately 3 stone to lose and we're hoping to start ttc next cycle. I keep starting dieting then come crashing off and comfort eating. I could do with motivation and support!!!

So 13.5lb to go!
Another amazing loss! I have been really inspired and motivated so far by you all. Slimming World certainly has some success stories! I will add you to the list with a goal of 13.5. x
Thanks Yes SW is the best ever 'diet' Its my lifestyle of cooking/eating from habit now. best thing i did. Last pregnancy i was like 292lbs this time i wont be when we do get pregnant i also hope to STS or still lose as realistically got about 4stone left to lose! x
I am not sure where I went wrong with SW :/ I was advised to do green as I do not eat meat or fish but people doing the new version were losing loads! I must look for my pack. You sound like you have really turned a corner, like you say it is about lifestyle change. x
Yeah i do the Extra Easy one. (meats aswell as potatoes etc allowed together) thats how i lost it x

I never heard of slimming world till I saw it mentioned on a thread a few weeks ago and there aren't any (that I know of) in the country I live in. I decided 2 weeks ago that I really needed to make some lifestyle changes, so I've started by replacing two meals with just fruits and veggies, drinking "slim fast" in the afternoon, and having a 'normal' dinner... but after 2 weeks I'm struggling again and feeling the desire to eat everything in sight!

It's so tough

I want to lower my BMI and get into better shape as I've been told that could reduce my risk of having a 2nd c-section (and I'm desperate for a VBAC!) so I really need to get my act together.

My BMI is 34

In a perfect world, I'd like to lose about 45 lbs (to start). But on my TTC journey I'd be happy with starting at 15 lbs (last time I was pregnant I lost another 10 in the first trimester due to 'morning sickness'). It feels impossible

Thats the US one
Good luck all x
Thanks! I've seen the U.S. website (I live in the Netherlands though) but I keep hoping I'll just get the motivation to stick with it on my own

A few years ago we bought an elliptical (which broke last week ) so hubby will be looking at it this week to see if he can fix it...

My DH (and his entire family) are super fit... they all eat seriously 2x as much as I do and are like half my size. DH is REALLY supportive and willing to make any/all changes I want in our lifestyles to make this easier for me (i.e. no chips/cookies in the house, buying fresh veggies and eating less processed foods) but all he has to do it LOOK at the elliptical and he loses 5 lbs. Since we started eating healthier he's lost 7 lbs by doing NOTHING! He's thrilled, and I'm happy for him, but it's frustrating!

Do you mind if I join you ladies?

I've got a stone to lose to get back to near my pre preg weight, would like to be there before getting preggers again!

I've been doing Diet Chef, but then I started going to the gym as well and found I wasn't getting enough calories for the exercise, so it all went a bit wrong, as I ended up starving and then stuffing my face

As of this week I've started my 30 day shred DVD which is 20 mins every day, so hoping that will give some results.
