Hi All,

Joined in September and then with one thing and another, haven't been able to get here. Its a New Year and time to take stock and get in control. I have been reviewing my weightloss for the last 2 years (with a club) and find after an initial period of loss I now weigh exactly the same as when I started!! (tho am £'s lighter). The leader whilst friendly and enthusiastic seems to be brushing this under the carpet telling me. you've lost weight before, the plan works, stick with it. So although doing a beautiful job of maintaining but not actually losing, it obviously isn't working for me. I think my problem is portion control so time to give calorie counting a go, not something I have tried before as its always seemed a lot of weighing and measuring when trying to cater for a family. I shall try to get here every day to support other people too. Any tips would be appreciated.

Agree try new ways but don't give up as your trainer says but agree with you that new ideas. I have found that trying new ideas all the time keeps me maintaining and losing over last two years. I found the blood sugar diet book really good as it really helped me understand the health issues and motivate me as I have children whereas I tried to lose weight more for how I looked. See what works for you and motivates you. So much on iTunes and keep talking to us and this equally helps me just replying to you. Keep believin... 😊

Thank you Manjeet14. I started yesterday and had what I think is a good day, I checked out the calorie recommendation/BMI yesterday which seems quite a lot, so aimed for the lower amount, looked everything up and wrote it all down. So far, so good............

Hello Hidden ☺ Happy New Year and welcome back to the forum ☺ Have you signed up for the 12 week plan? The weekly emails are very useful ☺

With regards to counting calories and feeding a family, I count for the whole dish then work out per portion. There is no need to cook separate meals ☺ You are probably right about portion control, that is the downfall of many of us ☺

Best wishes

Thank you Anna. Happy New Year to you too. Where do I sign up for the 12 week plan? You are right, I think if I was eating differently to the rest of the family my resolve would crack, so reading some of the posts on here think I might treat myself to the hairy dieters book and get some ideas ready counted, then go from there adapting my own recipes. I did write everything down yesterday going for the lower amount recommended for my BMI as the top figure seemed quite a lot. I booked a holiday yesterday for September, so hopefully that will add incentive.

Best wishes to you too

April
