I will join with yall ladies! Last night when my hubby was sleep I ate a bowl of chips and popcorn! I know it is horrible! Twenty minutes later I went to sleep. I have to get out of this bad habit. I have been drinking plenty of water today to curb my appetite. I also love the fast foods too! My hubby is bad also, When he eats fast foods he gets 2 double quarter pounder with cheese, and fries! He said today, it seems like everytime I eat 1 thing my stomach gets bigger! I told him that he need to lay off the pop and fast food. His response was I am going to try. Today he told me that he went to taco bell for lunch! I made him a healthy lunch: a sub, a apple, 2 ganola bars, with 2 fruit juices. He told me that he was not full from that! LOL! I have a treadmill in my living room but I am not getting on it until our air conditioner gets fixed! I will try my best not to eat nothing tonight!

frsttimemama - I think my issue with eating out is that I think well if I'm paying I want it to be nice, so I refuse to go for a salad or something equally healthy because I don't like salad. When Im dieting I just avoid eating out, I find it easier...but then you can't put your life on hold for a diet so I think I need to find a happy medium.

MomWife - its not easy when your hubby eats unhealthily, at the moment my hubby is going to the gym and eating better so thats really going to help, probably the only unhealthy thing we'll have in the house is biscuits so our son can have the occasional one. There have been plenty of times where I've been dieting and my hubby just eats rubbish, and despite him knowing full well that Im dieting he will try and encourage me to eat badly. One year when I had been dieting for a while, was doing sooooo well, had lost about 28 lbs and was going strong...for our anniversary he literally bought me a bag of chocolate, he went to Thorntons (a chocolate shop we have over here) and bought me a ton of different chocolates, literally filled a carrier bag. Not to seem ungrateful but I wasn't happy, he's so lazy I know why he did it, he went shopping it was the first shop he came to thought that will do and grabbed chocolate and went home. Pure laziness. Talk about sabotage.

I stand by my previous comments about my husband, if he supported me maybe I wouldn't be such an horrendous yo yo dieter.

I think we all need to focus on why we are doing this, so lets list our reasons...mine are:

To improve my PCOS symptoms
To help me conceive
To feel good about myself
To be healthier
To prove to myself that food doesn't have to rule me
To be a good role model to my son
And I need to be able to run around after my son, he's getting faster and faster lol

Cookie, I can agree with that! I'm not a huge fan of salad, but it is growing on me. I do prefer raw spinach to lettuce though.

Why I Want To Lose Weight:
--To help me conceive a healthy baby!
--To increase the odds of having a healthy pregnancy
--To help regulate my cycles (if they aren't)
--To be healthier and reduce my risk of things like diabetes and heart disease
--To help my blood pressure stay normal
--To look better and be more comfortable in my own skin

So I don't really understand how weight can fluctuate and increase when you eat less than the allotted calories.. not fair! Haha. Just saying..

I'm such an idiot. In cd1 today, so feeling down anyway and in the middle of a run of night shifts, so instead of cooking something healthy, I ordered pizza for lunch! On the upside, I hardly ate yesterday and probably won't eat much during my night shift, but I'm still an idiot.

I'll be better tomorrow!

You aren't an idiot; you're just human. It's okay. We all have off days. And just because you ate pizza doesn't meant that you have to eat junk the rest of the day. And you're working.. I'm sure you'll burn some of it off. Hang in there and keep up the good work!

@Cookie, my husband is not a good diet buddy either! When I first met my husband I had just lost quite a bit of weight and was only 20lbs from my high school weight which was so good! But in the last two years I have gained it all back and then some. He's good though now a days because I tell him I won't get entirely undressed in front of him again until I lose weight. Haha, when I say I want to eat out and I know I'm not supposed to be, he actually tells me that he doesn't think I should. And I know, it's not because he wants me to be healthy haha he just misses nakedness, dork.

Okay, so I want to lose weight because...
-To look and feel better.
-To get my cycles back without having to stay on medicine.
-To get pregnant, have a healthy pregnancy, and a healthy baby.
-Cuter clothes, because, yes. I love clothes.
-To save money, because if it were not for eating out I'd never eat bad. I'm not even remotely a snacker or a sweet eater. And eating out a lot is expensive!

Okay so I still haven't started yet even though I keep saying I'm going to. See what I mean!? Anyway, when is/or has everyone already started?

For me it will be no carbs, no fruits, no dairy, no processed foods, drink lots of water, and try to have similar meals over and over. That's how I lost the weight before.

I'm considering putting up a before picture...!

@PinkDragonFly you are not an idiot! I totally agree with frsttimemama.

My hubby ate some fast food this morning while I cooked a small breakfast for myself this morning. I did not do well last night since I had a small bowl of ice cream. I walked to the store today instead of driving, which is a great thing for me, but the heat was killing me. I wanted to go back home to get in my car and then drive to the store. My hubby daid before he went to work that he would lay off the fast food. I hope it can since it will be better for his health.

The reasons why I want to lose weight:

To have a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby
to look better in clothes
I do not want to keep wearing bigger clothes to hide my bad areas
To keep my blood pressure down
To be able to wear some of my clothes that I used to fit
To let my kids see that I am eating healthy
To be able to run longer than 3 minutes
To have more energy for my kids
Want to be comfortable when I am out in public

Hiya!

I am in the same boat as you are ladies, so I thought I'd join you, especially after reading pretty familiar things. Cookie, I ordered a similar meal replacement pack called Booosh because it was half price on groupon... I thought I'd give it a go and it had really good reviews. It's absolutely disgusting!

They must have paid the people who gave the good reviews. But then again, I also don't like slimfast etc. Because I paid 20 quid for it though, I will try and "indulge" myself with these shakes in the hope that it helps to loose weight at least. I have PCOS and tried forever to loose weight and instead I kept gaining 3 stone in the last 5 years. I started taking Metformin 1500 mg daily and after feeling bad for 2 weeks, I think it really helps now, I have hardly any cravings or snack attacks anymore which helps immensely and I feel that I have hardly any problems anymore to eat healthy. Have you ever considered asking your gp for metformin, cookie?

My plan of action> to eat as much fruit and veg as I like, no sugar, white bread, pasta... to walk half an hour - 1 hour a day or cycling, to throw the chocolate back in the face of my unsupportive boyfriend who keeps offering me unhealthy things

My reasons for loosing weight:
1. NOTHING FITS ME ANYMORE! I want to wear my lovely clothes again ...
2. to get pregnant and have a healthy pregnancy, fingers crossed
3. it would be lovely to have a cute bump instead of flabber, right?

So, new week, new luck! 3 1/2 kilogramms lost so far in the last 3 months (half a stone, 7 pounds) only 20 more to go, puh! Good luck to all of yous! Keep us updated about your strategies that help you loose some weight, pleaseee.

I have done SlimFast before, but not very successfully. I guess in my mind for those 200 calories I could have real food.. like a salad or sandwich or something. I have not eaten the best this weekend, but I haven't been as bad as I could be, either.. step at a time I suppose!
