New Year New Start!!

I originally stated the 12 week plan back in October but completely lost all my motivation. I have still been watching what I have been eating most of the time during the day but not been so good in the evenings and weekends which has always been my downfall.

I weighed myself this morning for the first time in about 6 weeks and was surprised to see that i have only put on 2 pounds. I really thought it would be much worse and I would have undone the hard work I had put in, so that was a bit more motivation to get me started again!

I am hoping to lose 2 pounds a week over the 12 weeks which will take me up the end on March

Looking forward to catching up with all your progress at the Monday weigh in!

That's amazing that you've only put on 2lbs in 6 weeks well done you


Hi Jude, sounds like you're starting from a good point then, its like you've done the rehearsal, now is the real event. Hope you find some good strategies for evenings/wknds, a problem time for lots of us here too. Good luck for your 12 week restart :)


Hi Jude,

Pleased to hear that your weigh-in went better than you anticipated this morning. Gaining just 2 pounds over the past few weeks - especially with Christmas indulgences etc is not bad going at all.

You're sounding more motivated again, which is a great way to feel, and hope to catch up with you at the Monday weigh-in. :-)

Lowcal :-)


You obviously learned how to eat healthily better than you thought Jude and that minimal gain of 2lbs is proof of that fact :)

I'm convinced that it's being active on the forum that keeps us on the straight and narrow, so by being involved with the Monday group weigh-in and the Around the World challenge, you're setting yourself up for success :)

Here's to a slimmer, healthier 2016 :)


Hi Jude,

Good news all round, a minimal gain and feeling ready to move on, it's great to hear.

Have a lovely week
