  • Good luck. Perhaps focussing on what you are actually eating will help. It certainly did me. I found planning meals, not getting too hungry, smaller plates and weighing things helps. I also have a protein based breakfast to ge me thriough the morning. For a change of exercise perhaps try the C25k.

  • Hi,

    I have started the 12 week plan today too. I need to lose a stone but I also seem to lose a few pounds and then put a few on. Had lost half a stone but weighed myself this morning and have put 3 lbs on so here I am! Hoping this plan will get me to my goal of one stone.

    Good luck

  • Hi Doll.

    It sounds to me that you are eating healthy and that you might have similar problem as I do. I need some boundaries and limits and if I don't have them I start to gain weight even if my diet is healthy. So I think that 12 week plan might be a perfect for you. Just stick to it and in 7 days or so you will see the results (don't forget 150 minutes of exercises a week)

    Good luck and let us know how are you doing...

  • Good luck, I am two weeks in. I still feel like a newbie, as this is a complete lifestyle change.

  • Ask yourself why? Portion sizes can easily creep up, and remember to drink enough, I find a great herbal tea helps at times.

    I always buy cheese, crisps and choc in portion packs, helps mentally, I also buy small wholemeal rolls for lunch, it just for me makes life easier, and I try to plan my main meals too
