And that will only just get out of the 'overweight' bmi. I thought if I write it down it might shock me into doing something - maybe like loosing 100lbs in 100 days - holiday time - I'm going to need a seatbelt extension on the plane - I don't want that. So, what to do?
I just really enjoy food and cooking, and eating, and meeting for coffee & cake, and going out with friends - such lovely stuff on the menu, and takeaways. This is going to be really bloody difficult isn't it?

I need to lose 56lbs. It's shit. I hate it. I love my food. I'm a great cook and ryvitas are the work of the devil. But my knees are hurting and my cholesterol is startlingly high. Plus I look crap in fancy frocks which puts me off having fun and makes me feel self conscious. So I'm going to change my habits and lose as much as I am able. It will be worth it because if we manage it, by next Christmas we can buy lovely frocks and be healthier and more fabulous than ever. You are not alone fgrin

100lbs in 100 days is simply not doable in any sensible healthy way.

Pick a way of eating that you can manage, set a start date and go for it, whether that is Slimming World, low-carb, 5:2 or whatever

I need to lose about 100lb too and I am trying but it is very slow progress

Have you had a diabetes check up? Finding out you are diabetic really changes your attitude to food. Not that I've lost any flipping weight since July when they told me... they insist I have three meals a day? How mad is that? Anyway, I'm being a good girl and trying to amend my diet accordingly. Eventually it should lead to weight loss. Good luck, OP.

I have had a diabetes check - it was part of the overall health check MOT type thing in the summer where bloods are tested and questions asked etc etc. I came back with the lowest 'risk of death' percent (it's not called that, but you know what I mean) that nurse had ever seen. Which is both reassuring - I'm not totally fucked - and worrying, as it seems to make a mockery of the test and the obesity risk threat death thing.

100 pounds in 100 days is not doable, but 2 pounds a week for a year is. Put your mind to it and look forward to pretty dresses next Christmas. Slimming World helped me lose 4 stone .

We're away at easter, so plenty on time to loose enough so that the seatbelt won't be an issue, but I always say yes to the biscuits with a cup of tea, cook things that I love to eat, and can't resist the nicest choices on the menus. I sometimes wonder that if I filled the freezer with frozen crap that I don't enjoy, and ate fish fingers and oven chips and frozen pizza that it might actually work as a diet.

Slimming world works and you get to eat lots of lovely food. Not fat or sugar laden food, but lovely all the same.

I have about that to loose too. Im planning on thinking about it again in January.

You can do a stone a month, I've been in your shoes, and steadily lost a stone a month for the first few months...its so doable! You can do it....just dont beat yourself up and eat soup or drink water if you're struggling with portion sizes
