Me! I am also 13 stone (well maybe a few pounds over ). And would like to be near 11 by xmas I will also be calorie counting as it is the only thing that works for me and I can't be cutting out carbs or treats. What exercise are you going to do? I am going to walk the kids to and from school on the 2 days I don't work, do an exercise DVD on my two free mornings and also start running again at the weekend (just a mile or two to start with - I am majorly unfit).
Me please. I am starting on Monday once the kids are back at school.
I have put just over 2 stone on since last christmas and I now weigh 11 stone 3.
I'd like to be 9 stone. I struggle with motivation, but I am being bridesmaid in a years time and I do not want to look like this then.
Calorie counting never really works for me. In march last year i lost a stone by cutting down on carbs (not out, cant do that), smaller portion sizes and exercise. Trouble is, I had the motivation of having to get naked in front of a younger man then and so it was easy, but I don't have that now LOL.
I am planning on starting on Monday too. I have a bike and trailer, so intend on walking the boy to school whilst pushing the bike, then going for a ride with DD every day. Just keeping it fun to start with, not counting or making firm plans that way. Once I can do that without really struggling, I may take up some swimming when DD starts nursery and fancy a Wii game to do with Zumba for a bit of fun.
I prefer calorie counting to cutting anything in particular down. I eat the same, just less, and I start off only cutting down a bit and then week by week trying to find the best calorie intake for weightloss.
I'd love you both to be my buddies on this, need the encouragement really.
