I have been feeling quite pleased with myself for sticking with my plan to lose weight and get fit. I realised today that when I posted a message last (4 weeks ago) I was saying I wanted to try to lose 14lb in 7 weeks. I have only lost 5 despite working really hard. I am sticking with my diet and going to the gym 5 times a week. I have lost 2 stone 9.2lb now but it is coming off so slowly. I am eating approx 1350 cals per day which is on the low side of what is recommended. I am not going to give up but the realisation that I will not achieve my goal by the time I go on holiday in July is making me feel really miserable. Short of eating a ridiculously low amount I don't know what to do. Is it because I am now attempting to lose weight that has been with me for some time (I think it may be claiming squatters rights!) I am generally a really positive person but not at the moment
