Stuff that's going on with me.

So, a friend has lost a stone recently,
And completely inspired to loose a few myself, I signed up.
I am so nervous of faliure, and planning, and all sorts of jazz, I'm excited, but I just want it to work, I thought that perhaps If I told you all about it I would be more likely to keep it going.
My twiglet of a mother lost 5 1/2 stone on this plan more than 20 years ago
And she looks pretty darn good.
I am feeling very apprehensive, I know it isnt a quick fix its a lifestyle overhaul, I want to be healthy.
What do you say my sweethearts, any of you in it with me? any pearls of wisdom to share? who shall be cheering me from the sidelines?
Until next time my sweethearts,


We're in this together- through thick and thin and double chins, though the idea is thin.
P.S- I thought all of my lovelies from overseas might want to know that there are 14 pounds in a stone, for example my goal weight is around 10 stone *NOT to loose 10 stone! to end up there- that's how we talk about big chunks of weight in England, rather than in pounds- unless it was something like 4 or 5 pounds xxx

Good luck, girl! Allow yourself permission to cheat occasionally. It will happen anyway, but this way you won't feel awful with the guilt.

I'm in the same boat, I need to get rid of the "freshers fifteen" that I gained last year, but simply trying to control what I eat doesn't work with me because I have very little willpower (as demonstrated by my Burger King meal for lunch, urgh).
Good luck, and let us know how you get on to spur the lazy so-and-so's like me into actually doing something about their weight!

I've been signed up to the cult of WW (it's an affectionate name) since the beginning of May and have lost 2.5 stone so far. Ruddy love it even though I was a big anti-WW person a long time ago.

Words of wisdom? Stick with it. It is a complete pain in the proverbial at first but once you get used to counting the points and you learn how many points are in different types of food it becomes much easier.

And do not beat yourself up if you slip. It's supposed to be a lifestyle change and sometimes, in life, there's a week where you have to eat out multiple times and there's a hole that only a massive bag of monster munch will fill. As long as you don't do it every day, you'll be sorted.

Oooh this comment is way too long. Apologies.

I lost 65 pounds in roughly 7 months on Weight Watchers. The awesome thing about it is that because of the bonus points, as well as the way it doesn't start you off super restricting, made me never really feel like cheating at all. I ate all the time, never felt hungry, and didn't feel like I was sacrificing much. And I've kept the weight off since April. You can do it! It's really easy, I promise.

Maddy,
I think you adorable no matter what! I'll be rooting for you! I know you can do it!

Good for you! Being healthy makes you feel so much better, I'm a 'curvy' girl and after 4 children my weight seems to not want to budge. I walk 6 miles three times a week and I feel so much better for it (running is out of the question when you have a excessive bust!) so if my body wants to not lose weight, at least it's getting fit!

My Dear Girl- I signed up myself two weeks ago, though I fought the idea, I have been throughly happy with the results thus yet. I have lost 4 pounds in two weeks (not sure about the exchange into stones and too lazy right now to google it). Best of all, though it took a both of those two weeks, my sugar cravings (addiction to all that is cake and cookies) has subsided drastically. I did it for health and because I could no longer tie my shoes. Take it easy, I can't cross an ocean (and a really large continent) to walk with you everynight, I will be cheering you on.

wow! Way to go to your mom! Keeping 70+ pounds off for more than 20 years! That's like my mother-in-law, she lost 70lbs the old fashioned way, eating less, walking more...and has kept it off and is a skinny-minny like your mom. I'm in with you! I remember with Holland I was for sure back to my ideal weight 9 months after...maybe even before but I can't quite remember. Anyway, that's my goal with Graham, be back in shape by the time he's 9 months old. I'll do it if you do=) I love your vanity by the way, I hope you kept that in your room renovation=)

Heather Lee said...

ps. thanks for clarifying for us American's, we take it one pound at a time. Sounds like more you know, like I lost 70 pounds! Instead of 5 stones.

It's a deal!- you always make me giggle, I love how your comments always come in two's, it always makes me smile. If this (and it better had) works, I am looking at a good nine months to get where I want to be, so You will most likely beat me, but I will keep you all updated, and I did keep my vanity, will definetly show y'all the room when it is done(er) we are stages people :)

Hey sweety, I started Weight Watchers almost 3 years ago and I lost over 40 pounds. I've completely changed my lifestyle, and I still count points to stay at my goal weight. It's the most effective diet I've ever been on, I would suggest it to anyone. Good luck, I know you can do it.
