Welcome back, Chepsol.
Like you I have fallen off the waggon (badly!). Lost over 8 stone in 2016 to achieve my goal with Weight Watchers. Kept within target range for about 18 months then gradually all the bad habits crept back. Now scared to get weighed but determined to get back in control. Maybe we can support each other?
Yes we can! Am determined this time to get it right.
Great, well I got off to a good start over the weekend. Planning recipes for week, shopping and cooking healthy on Sat and Sunday. I find it difficult during the week as I travel for work but am determined to try and stay in control. What is your approach?
I too plan for my meals(and cook) on Sundays. My weekdays are extremely busy. Planning also helps me stay on course and not get distracted as happened in the past.
I hope you have a great healthy diet day. Shall we check-in later to see how it's gone?
Yes you can. Have a healthy day too!
It's great to see you buddying up for the journey How about you both post your plans on the Daily Diary and get involved with sharing ideas there, too?
Hi BridgeGirl, agreed. I will post my plans. Thank you.
You'll find it a very sociable place
Thanks - I will take a look, haven't seen that section of the site yet.
It's a great help with planning, as well as getting to know people
Thanks - just reading some of the posts now.
Hi Chepsol, sorry I didn't check back yesterday - got back from work late. Really happy that I managed to stick to my plan, despite being in a situation where I normally fall off the waggon - long drive, stressful sessions to lead at work, long drive back and no time to cook. Luckily, I had leftovers from my WW meal the night before so that was fine! How was your day?
Hi JLos, great to hear from you. Being day 1 of course has its challenges especially on portion management and keeping cravings at bay. I managed well though by sticking to my meal plan. One day at a time..
Fantastic - hope today goes just as well!
Hi, I know how you feel it’s so frustrating trying to lose weight, and I’ve been on so many diets, I’ve joined on here today, to get support and advice from others in the same situation as me.
Hi, welcome to the club. To say it's frustrating is an understatement but am positive that this time I will hack it a day at a time.
Hi and welcome, Hopefulslimmer
Diets are not the answer, it was this post that made the change for me, so I hope it will help you as much healthunlocked.com/nhsweigh...
Please follow all the links I've given Chepsol and I'll look forward to seeing you become an active and successful member of our community.
Onwards and downwards!
Agree that it is really hard - but it is do-able! I wish I had the magic key that unlocks the door in my head that keeps me on track.
Hello would you like to join our weigh in? Here's the link, hope to see you there! x
Thanks Lytham, my weigh-in day is Friday (if I pluck up the courage to do it!) so will post then.
Thats brilliant, go for it on Friday, you won't regret it! x
Hi Lytham, I just weighed-in on the Friday weigh-in. Was hard to get weighed as I haven't been near the scales for months! Anyway, not too bad - I am 13.9 and have set a goal of 10.7 by Christmas!
Hope your week is going well.
Oh that would be amazing to get to 10.7 for Christmas! x
Hey Chepsol, Hope your week is going well? I just got weighed so now I know what I'm dealing with........................Good to face reality and set a goal.
Hi JLos, great to hear from you. I can see you are on the right path. Have been traveling a lot this week so my plans have been inconsistent. My first weigh in is on Monday. Hope to see good results. Enjoy your weekend!
Hi Chepsol, did you weigh in yesterday? Hope so, and hope you got a good result!
Hi JLos, yes I did weigh in last week and today. Total loss so far is 1.5Kg. One day at a time.
