    Hi Marina,

    thanks for your good wishes and well done on your weight loss so far. I hear you about getting back on the wagon. I have bad days too especially the evenings when I seem to get the munchies which is my downfall.

    Are you following any particular diet?

    hiya no im just using myfitnesspal to count calories and make more sensible choices with food also if i have enough calories leftover i will have a chocolate or glass of wine-as when i try to cut it all out thats when i tend to binge. a typical day is granola with semi skimmed milk lunch is usually salad or soup or eggs and dinner is just a smaller portion of whatever we eat as a family-snacks tend to be hummus or crisps that are no more than 100cal or a yogurt treats if i have enough calories are small glass of wine or 2 finger kitkat or 5 chewy sweets if i have a sugery craving. this seeems to be helping so far:thumbup:

    Marina, your plan sounds great. I am not good at tracking (as proven by past failed diet attempts :blush:) so this time I intend to go day by day, trying to stay within a calorie allowance for that day. I am going to eat what I feel like but stick to the calorie allowance.

    I have already given up chocolate, sweets, ice cream, cakes, biscuits and crisps since the beginning of June. It was soooo tough at the beginning but now I think I might be able to stay off them for good.

    Gonna try to get the exercise in now while baba naps.....fingers crossed she sleeps till I'm done!

    Thanks for popping in; it really is great motivation for me.:thumbup:

    subjected my poor baba to watching me do the last 10 minutes of my cardio dvd when she woke from her nap before I was finished. Red faced, dripping sweat and out of puff...must've been scary for the poor child!:haha:

    Hi august I'd love to be your buddy :). Congrats on your progress so far. I've had days where bad choices were made but I managed to pull myself together and still lose weight that week.

    I've been watching what I eat and walking everywhere I can for 6 weeks now. I started at 110.2kg as of today I weigh 103.5kg.

    6.7kg down and I'm stoked!!!

    I want to lose at least another 13.3kg by Christmas. I think it's doable lol

    Overall though I want to get down to 60-62kg.

    Hi there, surprisepg

    Sorry it has taken so long to reply but had no internet for the week Yay for a buddy!!! :happydance::happydance:I hope we can share the ups and downs together and spur each other to keep getting back on the horse. Well done on your loss of 6.7kg so far. Totally doable to get to 90kg for Christmas, imagine how gorgeous you'll be on Christmas morning :winkwink: How have you been getting on since? So glad it is Monday again - I always find the weekends the worst for temptation.

    I have cut out bread (which I loooove!) and it seems to have got the scales moving. Although to be fair it is probably not just the bread that does the damage but all my favourite toppings - mayo, peanut butter, jam, butter, cheese

    Exercise
    Davina Body Buff Cardio and Arms - this is getting a bit easier
    Pilates DVD main programme
    30 minute walk

    The Bad
    .........

    The Ugly
    AF is imminent.....must stay strong.....must stay strong!!

    Tomorrow is a new day!
    Up the speed while walking

    Weight this morning
    165.8lbs
