Anyone want to join me?

I've only started 3 days ago and think it may be good to have someone I can do this alongside. If there's anyone who is trying to lose 2-3 stone and fancies having a buddy to support you and visa versa please let me know.

Hi

Well done for joining the forum. This is a great place to give and receive support. Lots of people are in the same position as you. Like you I've got a a few stone to lose. I'm on week 3 and I've lost4kg of the 10kg that is my first mini goal. I need to set myself little goals that seem obtainable.

Good luck.

Congratulations on your decision!

I'd love to join you. I'm six days into juicing. I'm looking to lose around 5 stone give or take if I can. I seem to be well on my way so far but it's hard considering my partner isn't super supportive (I've watched him order take out twice this week).

Let's do it. My name is Helen. I need to lose 2.5 stone. I've done it before but it's crept back on over the last 3-4 yrs. how about we message each other to keep ourselves motivated?

My name is Dani and unfortunately sitting at at BMI of 37. Ideally I'd like to get it down to 23 and that gives me about 5 stone to lose. A scary goal!

Definitely Helen.

A bit of motivation really goes down the right way to remind you why you're doing it and hold off the chocolate cravings!

...Tragic but I spent Thursday googling cakes. I don't even like cake. I actually had to meditate for half an hour just to stop myself walking into a restaurant and ordering half the menu! LOL.

Ok today's goal- no cake and at least 15 mins exercise -ok? I have scoliosis of the spine so am limited to what I can do but got Pilates class later for an hour

Do you enjoy pilates? I thought about trying as I have some problems due to a sports injury in my lower vertebrae.

And definitely getting at least 1.5hrs. I've got my two puppies to walk when I get home and they take some walking! Lol.

Have fun at pilates though!

It's brilliant if you have back pain. Try it

I'd love to join you. Today is day 1 for me & I have about 6 stone to lose to get to a healthy bmi (which is really scary). I slipped a disc in my back about 2 years ago & became depressed due to the pain I was in, I comfort ate & piled on the weight. I'm still in constant pain and have decided enough is enough, I need to lose the weight to help my back (I've got to stop feeling sorry for myself).

You're situation is similar to mine. You have to break the circle. Constant pain is awful but I try to concentrate on the positives. Try Pilates

I've never tried pilates but I will keep my eyes open for a class & give it a try. I try to get out for a walk everyday but I'm very slow & can't go far.

Pilates is slow and all about core strength which helps your back. If you feel too fat to do it a class, there a plenty of dvds

Hi I would like to join all the new starters on the quest to loose weight. I want to loose about 2 stone. I have previously joined weight watchers and rosemary conley classes both of which I have been sucessful with, but sadly I always seem to think I am cured and then put on the weight again. It is never over a short period of time, but then nor is losing it. I haven't yet weighed myself today but I did try on some summer trousers and shorts which are far too tight to wear. I am going to start using my fitness pal as a record of what I am eating. I am not going to allow myself to put this off any longer. The weight wont go unless I actually take action. After writing that I am feeling very scared. One good thing to remember is if you have a bad moment don't let it ruin the day/week. It is a SUMO - Shut Up, Move On moment. All the best Angela.

Looks like im jumping on the bandwagon! Looking at losing around 2 stone, I have a big family holiday coming up and i would like to feel a little bit more comfortable in my own body before i go! My willpower is shocking and more than likely will need lots of help and shouting at lol, i could do with a buddy, ill be starting this tomorrow!

I would absolutely enjoy joining you on this hard journey, We all need the support that is where I am lacking.

Feel free. Just back from plates and was starving but grated 2 carrots and got hummus instead of biscuits and crisps

Keep strong, good job.

How are you getting on?

Today has been super hard. Got a tummy bug and the last thing I want is vegetable juice. Would kill for plain rice but it's not in my list. Nevermind. How is everyone else doing?

One day at a time. I've just been to tennis and back not too sore
