    Hiya!

    You can do it! Just got set your mind to go, set yourself small goals, small challenges.

    Like do 20mins exercise 3 times a week, then up it to 5 times a week, then up the minutes to 30mins 3 x a week, etc, complete little stuff will make you feel miles better, give you the drive to go for it.

    As for food, dont cut out everything you love, dont refuse yourself anything you want. Everything is fine in moderation.

    Swap bad habits for better ones, fizzy drinks etc for water, green tea.
    White carbs for wholemeal/wholegrain.
    Watch your soduim intake.

    Take photos, watch your body change.

    Ive lost 5st, you can do this too xx

    you can do it, i lost 3 stone a couple of years ago, i have managed to keep it fairly stable , i did it my eating a healthy breakfast of all bran with soya milk, a yogurt and half a grapefruit, the at about 11 on morning break i'd have a banana, then had home made sop for dinner and tea as i normally would, whatever i fancied, just cut the portion a little, if i was peckish i'd have some fruit or much on celery or carrot! i didnt really eat bread and i also went swimming for an hour on a morning for 5 days a week, that all stemed from having physio from a broken femur in a car accident 4 years ago!

    i seemed to of plattoed ever since tho as i ride my bike 5-6 miles a day goin to work , stand all day in my job and eat healthy but no more ever comes off! still could do to loose 4 stone!

    Hi Sparkle05, I have 5 stones to lose, i'll be your diet buddy! Like you I end up giving up really easily and have very little willpower so having a buddy to keep each other on the right track sounds great! What are you planning on doing?
    I went and bought myself some good electronic scales yesterday (i dont weigh myself usually, but thought I better commit and do it if i'm serious), I'm also going to try the biggest loser shakes, to kickstart my diet. I've heard they are quite good, so I'm going to give it a go. I'll be having a shake for breakfast and lunch, with healthy snacks in between and a healthy dinner.

    I've also measured myself and i'm planning on taking pictures today. Would you be interested in doing the same and we could share our results? We could always pm each other or email rather than post it here if you're not keen on everyone seeing!

    I want to lose a couple of dress sizes by august as we're planning a holiday and for once I dont want to look like a hippo in a swimsuit. I'm a size 16/18 (more an 18) now so would like to be a comfy size 14 for the holiday.

    Here's to a great start to our diet today :winkwink::thumbup:

    Hello chetnaz :hugs::hugs:

    Thank you I would love you to be my diet buddy :thumbup::thumbup:

    I am starting the slimming world today. I have joined on line and also have the books from around 2 years ago. I have tried other diets but always end up feeling hungry, with the slimming world there are lots of free foods so i can munch away all day lol.
    I thought i might set myself some exercise goals weekly as well. One of the ladies above suggest it, so i think i will aim for 20 minutes 3 times a week this week :dohh:
    Do you do any exercise all ready ?

    I am a size 18/20 and bulge out of everything :blush: I am happy to post on here in the hope we may help someone else. We can also PM and email as well if you like :thumbup:

    I will go and weigh myself when little one goes down for a nap in a while. I have never measured but i will do this too and let you know the results. I don't think i can bear to take a photo :blush:

    Thanks so much for jumping aboard, I all ready feel like i ive been empowered to do this lol.

    I have about 4 and a half to lose in total but have set myself a short term goal so it doesn't seem so mammoth! I have also joined slimming world so hopefully we can motivate each other! I'm also in the thread 28lbs later as that is my short term target!

    I'm off shopping today to stock up on "free foods" :)

    Morning Sparkle! That's great that you've joined Slimming World. I was going to SW a few months back (well I went for a month) and I lost just under a stone but I quit because I was BFing the twins and was ALWAYS craving naughty things and the last two weigh ins i gained or stayed the same so I didn't think it was worth going until I stopped BFing. I also have the books at home and the plan is to start on it in a couple of weeks but I wanted to try the biggest loser shakes first as I thought if I lose quickly the first 2 weeks, it may spur me on to continue (well thats what i'm hoping!). I had my first shake about half an hour ago and I have to admit, I didn't like the taste to it, but I will do it for this week and finish off the sachets I bought. Maybe go on SW next week and just do the shakes for a week.

    Ok here's my statistics (I am cringing as I am writing this!)

    Start Date 6/5/11

    Start Weight: 15st 9lb

    Measurements:

    Chest: 44 inches
    Waist: 39 inches
    Hips: 52 inches
    Thighs: 27 inches
    Arms: 12.5 inches

    I will post photos in a bit.

    I didn't buy any of the cookbooks as I wanted to make sure I could get on with the diet, but it looks good (unlimited pasta! yay!) so I'll probably buy one next week :)

    I'm all motivated now lol woooo :happydance::happydance:

    Also wanted to share this pic. I was n a diet before I had the twins and went from a size 20 to a size 16/18. Took this pic then and I was well chuffed with it - I had a waist again! So this is the pic that will be inspiring me that I can do it again!
