Getting healthy and losing weight through the power of MOTIVATION

Motivational Monday - where we are motivated to stick to our diet and exercise plans for the rest of the week.

Right, sorry for the disappearing act, have had a lot on again.

I've joined my local Slimming World group. Went today, and the consultant lady and other members were really nice. Just going through all the stuff now, there's a lot to get my head round!

Was weighed at group. It was not good - 13st 6! But to be fair, I had had breakfast beforehand.

Hopefully the scales show a loss next week!

Hello ladies,

Have had a super busy week and no time to revisit before now. Ive been mostly really good, well mostly..... Apart from the Rolos i had at the cinema while weeping to Les Miserarbles! Despite that i think i made good choices, these last few weeks have made me so much conscious of just what im eating. I stop if I full and decide whether I want it and if I have the calorie capacity for it.

However despite all that, shredding 3 times and a 2 hour country walk I've only lost a 1lb.
Gutted really. And feel cheated!

Here?

That's a great nsv. Well done reastie. smile

Kato bet you'll look fab in the dress. Love the fact someone walked right past you!

Hair also grin at cardigan shaped! Excellent on fitting into the jackets.

IMST love the comment about thread reaching capacity and your clothes grin

I am shock at the thought of a person size 12/14 being obese, even if they are short.

Today has been quite good. Went to the gym on the way home and been good food wise. I noticed today I was running up the stairs at work with a big spring in my step and feeling like I could keep going with lots of energy when I got to the top - this time last year I used to be all hot and bothered and find it hard work getting up those same stairs. NSV for me. Feels great to be feeling fitter and a healthier weight.

Which one is it?

High Five hair laughing at 'cardigan shaped!

I was toying with the idea of replacing one of my pax wardrobe doors with a mirrored one, they are like £25 or something. As a rule all my mirors used to be from boobs up, and now i have to stand on my bed to check myself! H&S nightmare!

X post by loads. Sounds like a fab dress Kato. Well done on your NSV. smile

Anyone can start a new thread but not me because they die a death and I need this one. smile

I think I'm free either day too. Kato, dh is curious about you. I think he's been a little bit in love with you since you introduced the concept of a Munchy box to him (not that he's ever had one). grin

NSV for me today. I was out with my mum on Saturday night and we were talking about weight. She is the same height as me but a slightly different shape. It turns out that we both weigh the same. I've always thought of her as slim.

Anyway today I got out a couple of jackets she'd given me that she didn't wear anymore. I'd been saving them for when the weight came off. One is a size 12. Not only could I get them on but I could do them up without them gaping. Yes!!

I think this is more to do with how I view myself than anything else. I said to IMST that maybe people will stop thinking of me as a fat person soon. She said they didn't anyway but I am a bit cardigan shaped. I am never without one. grin

Big up for my self esteem and maybe it's time to invest in a full length mirror. I seriously need to get a grip on what I actually look like.

I think it more shows that the system is wonky at best! It'll keep me motivated though, and I have a rare night out on Saturday so I'm going all out glam with a hot pink lace overlay bodycon dress! eeeekkk

Met a client today who I've not seen in over a year and she walked right past me! nsv!!

Mine is 27, despite my weight being 9st 12! Height or lack of it really makes a difference in BMIsmile.
Well done Kato.

Just thought I'd recheck my BMI... 26.6!! Nora, when did that happen?

Go on spb or imst! You're the original biggest losers!

I'm free either day

No...scrap that, prob not a good idea

Hi everyone. How's everyone doing? I'm still ok...nit brilliant but managing to not binge smile
Imst, hair and Kato, would it be possible to meet up on the 11 April instead of the 10th? Still looking at all the options and trying to work out whether it makes sense for ne to stay over before the thing or after it.

Is it about time for a new thread? This one's nearing capacity now unlike my clothesgrin

Well done everyone, what a good week. I've had quite a good weekend except for a few drinks on Saturday night and will again tomorrow but will hope for a maintain as it's so soon after Friday's surprise loss.

And Kato have you been sneaking into ny fridge? I thought the big pile of billy bear ham had been going down when I wasn't looking? grin

8020 I was in 12/14 jeans while still obese, I think it's because I'm so short, "obese" goes down to quite a low weight. If I could face going to a shop I'd find out what size I am now, perhaps next month. I slightly begrudge buying new clothes that no longer fit after a month or so. Especially those gap jeans I bought in November, which now hang like sacks, and are held up by a belt, but I won't ditch them until I reach my target weight, then I'll buy long lasting decent quality clothes to last me years.

Well done all. Great results!

1lb off here. 3lb more to get out of obese. Weirdly I am def a size 14 bottoms. 14 doesn't sound as if it should be linked to obese. But suppose I am at least at the bottom end.

Well done everyone! High fives all round.

A special mention to our first ever member of the 9st club!! May that Wii fit sort out its tone once and for all!!

Ooh well done imst. And you definitely deserved that cake!
