Daring to join in!

Well I've been "dieting" for around 2 years and 7 months and have lost 4 stones.Sounds good but have lost nothing for around 6 months. Last week I weighed in at 16st 2lb and decided to Log all my food and exercise to see if my weight loss would kick in again.

So far it's been 10 days. I now need to pluck up courage to get on the scales...I'll go on Monday.

Good Luck with that, logging is definitely the way forward in my opinion that way you can keep track exactly on what you are eating and adjust as necessary.

I did not calorie count or log when I lost all my weight but I have found it an almost essential tool since I have been in maintenance.

I fond not only logging but weiging portions of rice, pasta etc essential. Good luck and hopefully you will get a good result on Monday. If not just keep at it and you will get there eventually. Let us know.

I've just started using myfitnesspal and c25k again as I also hadn't lost any weight for over 6 months (and had been gradually putting it back on for the last month!). Weighing things like rice and pasta makes such a difference. I cooked enough rice for 4 servings last night and it looked like almost nothing in the pan! When I served it though I could see that I had the right quantity for sensibly sized portions rather than my usual over-estimates!

I was the same weight as you when I weighed in this morning. I hope your weigh-in today is what you're hoping for. Best of luck.

Thanks Legion.

I did weigh in...not too happy.

I'll try to stay positive though and continue with the running and myfitnesspal.

Fingers crossed for next Monday.
