A tick or not a tick

I have put on a good 1 1/2 stone in the last few months....Not good but so easy done.

Needed a plan, so along with a work mate we have a tick and cross system. Each morning based on the day before we give ourselves a tick if we have stuck to 'dieting/cutting down' and a cross if we haven't. We have a white board in our office and only known to us, under our initials we put the said tick or dare I say cross. Then we put down each week how many pounds we have lost.

I must say it is working......I had the thought at the weekend...'if N can do this then I can'.....

Believe me it works all you have to do is be honest and if you can't be honest with yourself then well.....

A little bit of competition helps...

Good for you, miamia! It's definitely easier to keep on the straight and narrow, if you have someone there with you :)

Great idea, I like. Definitely others, pointing you the right direction helps. The forum has really made a big difference to keep me motivated. I also have a sister who eats healthy, she lost weight in her twenties, now in her forties keeps to slim size 8 to 10, which is a healthy size for her as she's petite. Five years ago this was my size, have a long way to go.


Great idea miamia and glad you've got someone to help keep you focused.
