Saving for a new wardrobe as a REWARD

Hey lovely people...

As you know I started on Friday weekend wasn't really my get up and go ... but today is, my paperwork is completed, my fit bit is on and I de-cluttered my wardrobe to see what I have and what I don't need. That was very empowering - I have decided that I WILL LOOSE THIS WEIGHT, I am not going to be the fat sister in law on my husbands brothers wedding and that I will be treating myself to some new outfits...

I've also set up a standing order £30.00 for a new wardrobe in jan 2018 - I have worked out that I can really have the body I want and feel good for me and that my husband will match it so not bad... if I really give this 12 week programme everything I HAVE

Loving the support and the forum

Is the app any good?

Hi , don't forget to buy some new clothes as you lose weight as this will make you look and feel so much better


hey Ella... well I have clothes which no longer fit me a normal size 12 but then loosing the weight will allow me to fit into them..

Thank you

Good morning mannikaur and such a lovely uplifting post 😊

It's a great feeling being empowered and in control. I love the idea about a standing order for clothes, very motivating. Especially with a wedding coming up ❤️

With regards to the app. There are two. A HU one and NHS 12 week plan one, both are useful but limited, I've reviewed them in the pinned posts section.



Hey Anna

Thank you so much

yes ... need to get control of this!

ok will have a look... also where is the best place to see where to measure the waist??? as different sites are saying difference places what do you use here?


Brilliant idea! Good luck 🤗

ooh I might try that, would love to have an amount for every lb lost but what would I even decide!?🤔

I started Friday, had a good day, Saturday went off track, yday back on and today been good and within Cal count of 1750 with a 3 mile walk this morn and I hope to try some form of strength later.....any suggestions moat welcome as all I really do is walk/stationary cycle and swim very occasionally....😊

you will have such a great time choosing outfits in January, I hope to have kicked 3stone by July of next yr, more if possible but really want 3off.....holiday will be booked soon so I have no option!😆


hey mcc13

well im in the same boat ... im not able to walk at the moment but weight creeping no.. what ive decided was £1 for every 1lb lost.. and £30.00 as a bonus! I have a weight loss jar that I got from another post!!! nothing in there yet lol...

I'm 12.9stone and I should be around 10.5 too so we can definitely do it.

would love a walking a buddy too... but not many people from where I am
