  • I know I feel the same at times, at the moment I feel motivated and am looking forward to some sunny weather, a change of clothes, and a chance to get into the garden. The main thing is that you are making at start and you are lighter than you heaviest.

  • I am a picker/snacker it's so difficult when you haven't got the will power with temptation :-( this week I tried to be organised & got some veg in the fridge ready to eat I got carrot battons, sugar snap peas & baby corn. So instead of crisps I've ate veg it's been ok . But has worked as I've lost weight this week. Good luck healthy eating it is never easy but stick with it & you will make progress x

  • I really understand where you are coming from shakirafin.I have been on diets for as long as I can remember.Every new year I want to weigh less.I did Slimming World a few years ago and lost 1.5 stone but the hardest part isn't losing the weight but maintaining it.All diets work but only if you can accept that is how you need to eat forever.Unfortunately I just can't do it as I love food too much.I have now tried to reduce my portion sizes and have changed to danish style bread and only have half a packet of low fat crisps etc.To not deny myself anything but eat in moderation as I think this is easier to maintain.After doing slimming world I went on a cruise for 2 wks and put on 9lbs of the 1.5 stone I lost and have not really lost it again since.However I could not go on holiday and be miserable trying to follow my diet rules.I also find eating out is a nightmare too.It's a matter of working out a happy medium for you that you can stick to indefinately.Good Luck and keep us posted :)
