I'd love to lose a stone...

Classic case: been dieting for 10 years on and off, have a hubby who is probably a little underweight, have a 8mth old who needs stuff to be mashed, and I'd love to lose a stone. Saw a picture of me at a wedding yesterday, after I'd lost my pregnancy weight (only put on 6lb), and I nearly cried, looked massive.

I'm 25, a size 12-14, 5 7, and 11 st 8lb so a little chubby. I work 3 days a week and work in retail gardening so run around a bit and do lots of lifting.

I'd like to know if there's anyone who's managed to lose that last bit and if there's any tips?

Thank you

Defo hard to do - once you've started you can't stop. I always feel guilty so I tend to have something I really want instead of having the fattest thing because I can

Am having few days off because of various meals out but had salad at restaurant last night and didn't drink wine so hopefully not too much damaged caused

Chinese not too bad really - I had takeaways every night last week and still lost 2lb, the trick is portions and getting something not too bad to start ie instead of korma I had tandoori chicken - good luck

Well done daisy! I'm also looking to lose another half stone or so to give myself a birthday buffer lol

DancingInTheMoonlight Tue 12-Feb-13 19:15:24

I've ordered Chinese tonight-first takeaway since new year! Normally its one a week at least. Going to split it over two nights to limit the calorie damage!

:-) fantastic! I think the challenge well be to stay in then definitely in my case

Bought some size 10 jeans today for the first time in probably 7 years. When I looked at them I thought these are way too small but they're like a glove grin

I'm going with my sister who is a size 8 but she hasn't had a child so i don't compare myself to her anymore lol. Besides she's way more self conscious than me! Ds is fine, its an ongoing condition so its becoming the norm now :-( previously tho it has lead to seriously crap food being eaten...

daisydee43 Fri 08-Feb-13 10:20:35

Dancing - I'm sorry to hear about your DS, can't imagine how stressed you have been. Great news that you are happy with your new size that's really positive. I remember going to a spa day with my friend who is size 8 and I only wished I was slimmer then. Keep it up!!

DancingInTheMoonlight Fri 08-Feb-13 08:31:36

Hi sorry I've not been about! We have had a bit of drama as ds was rushed into hospital on Mon. All out and fine now tho.

I've been reasonably good considering, avoiding takeaway even tho i really wanted one! Don't think I've lost any weight but def haven't put any on... The good news is I'm now a comfortable size 12 so have ordered myself a swimsuit which will fit (rather than one two sizes too big) do i can go to a spa for my 30th birthday celebrations :-). Still going to lose another 4/5lbs tho!

Ednate- yes I have been following 1200 cals a day but not low carb (although you tend to cut down on carbs anyway cos they're high cal) so far I am 2lb away from losing a stone since 1st jan!!

Have lost 2 lb this week!!! Have lost 11lb so far and hope to do the same again. How's everyone else doing?

daisydee43 Mon 04-Feb-13 11:16:09

Amothers- that's great, have you managed to keep it off? I'm same height and trying to get to 10st as I think 9st 7 will be hard to maintain? I weighed 12st 8 last summer after having dd and lost a stone by end of year by low carbs. Since jan I have managed to lose 11lbs by cal counting and was pleased not to have put on any weight after this wknd away which shows I'm changing my ways with food now and picking better options, remain confident for weigh in 2moro

Last May I got on the scales and was utterly horrifed to find I had crep to up 12 stone 1 lb. I am Five foot seven. Eight months later and I am at my goal of nine and half stone, through eating less and moving more and sheer bloody willpower! Remember, the chair is the enemy so keep moving!

daisydee43 Sun 03-Feb-13 21:38:18

Well I do it everyday just to keep a track on if but my official weigh in is once a week and I enter that on calendar. How about you?

freerangeeggs Sun 03-Feb-13 16:09:14

Daisydee, how often do you weigh yourself?

daisydee43 Sun 03-Feb-13 16:08:46

Been away this wknd and was my challenge not to eat for sake of it. Did have few extras like cookies from the snack bag but apart from that I didn't do too bad. Made pack lunch on sat and i had tuna salad and nutrigrain bar, sat eve had the low cal pizza range at bella italia and had egg on toast at little chef (don't go there btw it's gross, even my dustbin baby refused the toast), and now I'm home I'm enjoying a nu-me couscous pot. Hopefully it all pays off

Just discovered that ice cream isn't that bad cals - morrisons soft scoop mint choc chip is only 99 cals and you get a big bowl for it, yummy smile

daisydee43 Tue 29-Jan-13 09:29:13
