    NB Also you need to look at your actaul diet, you currently eat a HUGE amount of saturated fats which need to be kept to a bare minimum, your body needs a lot more protine at this will help aid your miscles and therefore add you body in converting fat to lean tissue, plus you have a lack of vitamins and minerals due to lack of fruit and veg. if you simply eat the same sort of food you do but in smaller quantities you will be seriously malnurished. Plus even eating a small amount of what you currently eat will still prob mean your eating your full RDA of fat and calories due to the fattening nature of them. You could actaully eat more food than your currently eating a day but still lose weight, just because it would be healthier food.

    way to much

    sugar
    carbs
    saturated fat


    a diet isnt about how much you eat its about what you eat and what time of the day you eat it and how much water you drink.

    there is loads of ways you can approach it but you will have to change your diet big time and probably your lifestyle to match. if you want to lose wieght its better to be healthy with it aswell.

    you need to balance out your calorie intake with excercise and watch your fat,carb, sugar , salt intake. might take a while to get it how you want it , but it will be worth it. coz if you dont diet properly you will just put the weight back on again.

    sorry if cat said some of that , was to much for me to read :rofl:

    i no i just eat crap all the time

    i have ate like that for yrs i moved out at 16 and had no idea how to cook lol

    im planning on just eating fruit and veg every 2 hours through the day and loads of water. after a month should be a huge difference.
    then once i have lost some weight i should have lost the graving for junk food and my stomach should have shrunk.

    i walk loads any way
    i walk about 2 hours a day with the kids in the buggy and i going to drink loads of water

    Have a read of this before you start. Paying attention to point number one for when you start your walking!
    http://www.standapartfitness.com/uploads/howtogainbodyfat.pdf

    Also be sure when you do weigh ins that you weight yourslef at the same time of day, as your weight can fluctuate throughout the day. Best is to weigh yourself first think in the morning when your running on 'empty'

    If your not good at cooking, all you need to do is prepare a salad each night (no cooking their) and have it with new potatoes or cous cous (which you can buy in packs where you just add boiling water and stand for 5 mins) or brown rice, then grill a bit of chicken, pork or fish.

    For lunches if you normally have sandwiches, repace this with wholmeal pita breads, you can get assorted weight watchers tinned tuna in diff dressings (asda have on offer at the mo) or chicken and salad or turkey bacon or all sorts. Just aviod most cheese's.

    For breakfasts opt for a wholegrain cerial, oats are best as they are a super food and will help your digestive system.

    Drink loads fo water (aim for 4 pints a day), plenty of fruit, now is the season for strawberries, and you can always have them with low fat icecream.

    And if you want to have a night of munchies with a dvd or something, opt for microwave popcorn, very low fat, and a nice sweet inocent smoothie.

    You need a goal to aim for , not something that will upset you and make you feel worse.

    if you think like that you wont get anywhere with your diet , think of another reason to do it.

    There is plenty of exercises you can do aswell , mixing it with looking after your 2 little ones

    If you are doing a lot of excercise Rach then it could be because you are building up your muscles .. apparently muscle is heavier than fat so if you dont feel like you have put on weight then that may be why. Also you have lost a lot in the first two weeks anyway and i was always told that if you lost a lot one week then it is sometimes hard to lose again the week after.

    Am i making sense or just rambling .. lol.

    I have been doing slimming world since october 2005 and lost just over 2 stone but then stopped losing weight in august last year when i stopped smoking. Havent put any back on but fed up with staying the same so started weight watchers on tuesday and have lost a pound and a half already this week so hopefully i will be able to lose another 2 stone now!

    Good luck to everyone who is trying to lose a few pounds .. i have been on diets since i was 11 ( so 15 years :wacko: ) and know how hard it is :cry:

    the reason you lost so much the 1st week is because you lost the water from your body and the bloatedness.

    you might not be doing enough excercise to match your calorie intake , its a hard question to answer unless you know your diet , excercise routine , weight , height , lifestyle etc etc

    and depends alot on what excercise you are doing (cardio , muscle etc etc)

    and yes muscle weighs alot more than fat

    Wobbs and I have been talking today and will be looking at putting in more of a dieting section to the forum, so we can track weight loss, and I have some other ideas so we can help motivate each other.

    Watch this space!
