I'm 5ft 5 and am currently 10st 6lb. My clothes are feeling tight and I have stopped wearing jeans in favour of elasticated trousers which is a slippery slope for me.

To cut a long story short, I lost 3st after my twins were born 2.5 years ago. I felt a lot happier and more confident but it's beginning to creep back on as I lost the weight during my turbulent pregnancy so never had to address my bad eating habits. It's catching up with me now and I've put a stone back on and know if I don't address the problem now, it won't be long till the other 2+st is back.

I wondered whether anyone fancied buddying up and we can give each other a nudge, check in on how each other is doing?

I'll join you. I'm 5.5 and about 10 stone. tried slimming world last year but it made me obsessive about food. I only want to lose a stone but it's just so hard!!!

I'll join you. I'm 5.4 and 10 stone 9 pounds. This is the heaviest I've ever been (including when 9 months pregnant!). Was around 8.5 or 9 stone most of my life but in the past couple of years an extra stone just crept up on me. I'd love to be back to 9.5 stone by the summer - it should be doable.

My plan is reducing carbs like bread, cutting sugar, tracking with MFP and walking an hour a day.

I'm in. I'm 5ft 4 and 11st 3lb. I'd like to get to 10st by July. I'm going to be tracking on MFP and exercising 5-6 days a week. I'm hoping a combination of running and some Jillian Michaels arse kicking will do the job!

My problem is plain old greed - huuuuuge portions of crap with wine on the side are my thing.

About 11st 6 ish I think (too scared to weigh). Would like to lose a stone, 10st is just not doable for me sadly, I literally have to starve myself. So 10st 7 will have to do for me.

Short at 5ft 3 and fat at 10 st 8lb. Ideal weight for me 9st. Have been fat for about 4 years now and really getting me down, another summer hiding fat.

mondaymadness Sun 01-Feb-15 19:12:26

I'm in. x

5 4" & 10st 2lb so count me in, I want to be able to wear fitted clothes without the tyres. Looking to get to 9st ideally.

HeffalumpsnWoozles Sun 01-Feb-15 19:18:55

Forgot to say am signed up to WW but I'm awful at the whole tracking malarkey, either forget or can't be bothered to weigh things.

FiloFunky Sun 01-Feb-15 19:40:11

ok i have signed up for my fitness pal. can someone add me? Filofunky is my user name i have no idea how to add people!

Woahbodyforrrrm Sun 01-Feb-15 20:46:10

Wow, brilliant responce! sorelip you basically described me, I am a very greedy girl, I need to sort it out. I would really like to be slim for spring.

I'll add you on map now, I'm pink_lilytree if anyone else wants to add me.

I'm going to plan and log my food for tomorrow now, I definitley need to keep track of what goes in my mouth as I'm good all day until 4pm when the savaging starts, I must be gorging on a lot of extra cals between 4pm and bedtime. I'm planning on going for a nice long walk with my twins once I've dropped my boys at school.

Have been considering the Fitbit, has anyone got it?

TallulahTwinkletoes Sun 01-Feb-15 20:52:32

I'm in. We are approx the same weight and height op so should be similar in terms of weightloss. grin

HeffalumpsnWoozles Sun 01-Feb-15 20:58:22

Can't seem to add anyone to MFP without an email address? Sure you used to be able to do it with just a username before....if anyone can or even wants too I'm Jolie72

FiloFunky Sun 01-Feb-15 20:58:36

just dragged dp out for a walk with me. feel good. im lazy and i snack too much. will have to ditch the car for a few weeks!

Woahbodyforrrrm Sun 01-Feb-15 21:02:11

heffalump If you click on the add friend by email, you should be able to add them by username in the box on the next screen.

Hi Tallulah smile

Me too Filo, I wish my DP would come walking too but he won't. He has a manual job so can get away with his bad diet for the time being envy

HeffalumpsnWoozles Sun 01-Feb-15 21:02:14

Filo can you try adding me again, I accepted but it said the request was invalid.

FiloFunky Sun 01-Feb-15 21:04:17

i tried. says we are friends but i cant see you sad

HeffalumpsnWoozles Sun 01-Feb-15 21:06:30

Ah thank you Woah smile love your username btw.

HeffalumpsnWoozles Sun 01-Feb-15 21:07:11

Filo I can see you, let me have a look at my settings.

itiswhatitiswhatitis Sun 01-Feb-15 21:09:34

I'm 5"4 and 10stone would like to be 9 stone. I'm pretty good during the day and I've started running again but I can be really disciplined all day and then in the evening I just can't seem to help myself and find myself eating cereal and toast all the time. I cannot seem to live without a ton of carbs

FiloFunky Sun 01-Feb-15 21:12:29

i see you! grin what a good looking bunch you are!

HeffalumpsnWoozles Sun 01-Feb-15 21:15:40
