    Hi

    Ive set myself a goal I think is achieveable.
    Im 5ft 5" and 13 st. Id like to lose half a stone by Christmas or a lb a week over the next seven wks. Im going to weigh in every Sunday.
    Last weigh in will be Sunday 23 Dec. I will update every Sunday night.
    I will be using My Fitness Pal (name: puffin2nuffin). I am on 1200 cals a day, but I can get back cals frm exercise - using this method earlier this yr I lost a st. I know it wont be 1200 every day but thats what I want to average over the week. This is about 300 cals for breakfast, 400 cals for lunch & 500 cals for dinner. Breakfast is porridge ir fruit, lunch is usually soup & dinner varies (but lots of veg). If I snack then I need to do more exercise :)

    Im LTTTC and on waiting list for IVF/ICSI so thats also my motivation.
    Feel free to join me :)

    Hi girls! Have room for one more?:flower:

    I have no idea how much weight I am trying to lose, but one pound a week sounds doable; I figure I'll see how I feel each week for now.:thumbup:

    I've tried Weight Watchers, but the damned thing only gave me 19 points and that's not enough food...I can't even graze in my front yard for that.:haha:

    Slimming World appeals to me and I have the books, but it's been a little difficult bc I am too lazy to convert the measurments for my American brain.

    So, for now I'm just going to make small changes and better food choices. And I am totally open to suggestions!

    Good luck ladies!:winkwink:

    Hi everyone :wave:

    Hi MrsP14 Ive added your starting weight to the first page. Now we're all in this together we have to support each other :) avoiding the snacks is my weakness too - so if you know you are going to cave in best to have healthy snacks on hand. Lets get healthy :) :thumbup:

    Welcome onboard :hugs:
    We should all be able to manage a lb a wk if we stick to it and share our sugestions. Are you on My Fitness Pal - its a good way of recording everything you eat & your exercise but you can also look at friend's daily diaries to see what they are eating & how many cals - can get good ideas that way. My name in My Fitness Pal is puffin2nuffin.

    Good luck!!

    Hi Dylis - spinning classes sound great!
    I live in the middle of nowhere so I have to find my own ways of keeping fit. Ive just had a snack bar and ok it was a healthy one with lots of nuts & seeds but it was still 278 cals so thats some wiifit time for me now and a brisk walk later on!!

    Good luck x

    Hi all :wave:
    Had a good day so far- ate an apple instead if a biscuit when I was hungry- a good start. It hasn't helped that I have put a rhubarb and custard scented air freshner in my car though- I just want to eat some ;)

    Have Zumba in a while, then will be having fish and veg for dinner...

    Do you like my new ticker???
