Last week I started the 12 week plan and I already think it's amazing! The weekly chart gives me the motivation to keep going and to stick to my diet as everyday I have to update it and my family can see it. The tips each week are a great help, I don't feel like I've been thrown in at the deep end. The list of actions for every week are brilliant (although I am late in signing up to the forum as I was supposed to do it last week, oops). The structure has given me the motivation I needed to stick to a diet and also telling my family and friends what I'm up to. If they know, then I'll be really embarrassed if I just give up!
At the end of week 1 I lost 5lbs which I am over the moon about, and I lost an inch off my waist. I'm trying to keep in mind that the weight loss won't be like this every week so that I don't feel down if I only lose 1lb during a week, or nothing at all. My biggest challenge now is starting the exercise. I do TaeKwon-Do and having weekly classes is what motivates me to go, doing exercise off my own back though... not so much motivation. I've tried writing down what I'm going to do and when but that doesn't seem to work either. Does anybody have any ideas or tips that they've found works for them?
Good luck to all those other dieters out there. Keep going, we can all do it
