Please join me and hold my hand.

I have two stone to lose and it is making me really miserable. I feel awful carrying this extra weight.

I have finally had enough and have decided to do something about it.

Tomorrow is the day!

My plan is to stop binge eating junk and just eat sensibly and to control my portion size.

I am 51 and 5'4.

Not sure of my exact weight but it will be around 11 stone. I will weigh myself in the morning when I shower and will post my starting weight.

Please please join me.

Yeah, me. Sick of the sight of myself. Have been sugar binging recently & I'll keep gaining if I don't stop... Tomorrow it is!
5"4 / 11.7 stone / Age 41. Two stone to lose. I'm with ya, cherrylove!

cherrylove Mon 26-Jun-17 17:12:58

Juicy cake we have a plan then.

I've really been overdoing the sugar and feel so crap and tired. I don't know why I do this to myself.

Still, having a plan is better than no plan at all.

We need more recruits...walk this way lovely wobbly ladies. smile

I'm in. 5"1 and 12 stone. Big birthday in 5 months and desperately need to lose 2 and a half stone. I keep starting again and then failing so desperately need to be held to account.

Peaceandl0ve Mon 26-Jun-17 19:24:09

Me too, can i join?
5ft 4" and 12 st, have already lost 5lbs feeling quite determined. Also got a big birthday on the horizon....

cherrylove Mon 26-Jun-17 19:29:48

Ive got a little bit more than that left to probably, but I've been cutting out sugary and processed foods since mid January and have lost 23lbs so far - slowly but surely. I'd love some company..

cherrylove Mon 26-Jun-17 19:50:46

Honey welcome. 23lb weight loss is fantastic well done.

Me. 49 (50) in December. 11st 11lb this morning. Lost 3st with slimming world a couple of years ago and slowly put 1.5 stone back on! Was going back to slimming world tonight but couldn't find any free joining vouchers so didn't go 😂. Holiday in 7 weeks. Feel sluggish and also need to exercise!

cherrylove Mon 26-Jun-17 20:10:32

Can I join you? Am 49, 5'1" and 10st8lb. Was quite slim until the last 4 years or so and have piled on weight due to work stress and redundancies, perimenopause and probably just bad habits and eating crap (and drinking wine blush). Rejoined the gym in April and lost 10lb since being at my heaviest ever just after Christmas (which I thoroughly deserved through overindulgence) but have hit a plateau and really need to get my eating in hand. If I can just lose half a stone before my holiday in 4 weeks will feel better, but realistically need to lose 2 stone in the long term. Since hitting 45 can't seem to lose weight the same though. What plans are you all following?

cherrylove Mon 26-Jun-17 20:45:41

Hi Clarice.

Your story sounds similar to mine. My plan is to cut all the crap out of my diet and just eat healthy. I really miss being slim and I no longer recognise myself.

Last time I lost weight was a couple of years ago, took 6 months to lose 32 lbs. All I did really was cut sugar & say no instead of "gimme all the cakes!"... Put it all back on slowly. Definitely down to sweet things!
Looking to get back to long walks, as well. I'm out & about daily, but I need to step it up big time!

SKYTVADDICT Tue 27-Jun-17 06:28:05

Ok. So 11st12lb this morning with AF due tomorrow so feel worse than normal! Had a half arsed plan to get up at 5.30 and start couch to 5k (again 😂) with DS1 who is 10 but it didn't happen. Weather dependant I have started tennis for fun on a tuesday night called slice girls which involves cake but I have just been having a cuppa. I plan to roughly follow slimming world as I can't r go hungry 😂. Hope you all have a good day. I work 7.30-4.30 so won't be back on until tonight

cherrylove Tue 27-Jun-17 07:08:31

Day one here we come.

I've just got on the scales and I weigh 10'8. This is a little less than I thought but must be the result of having a full on cold last week with zero appetite.

I've recently purchased a Fitbit so I aim to do 10,000 steps a day to start with, it also tells me how many calories I burn daily which is usually around 1400. I easily consume that amount of calories eating chocolate and cake everyday!

Good luck to you all smile

12'3 here which is worse than I thought but I was away last week and eating constantly so hoping it will settle in the next couple of days. Fitbit is on so no excuse not to do my steps- just need to avoid the work biscuit tin

teaping Tue 27-Jun-17 08:39:06

Morning, can I join you?

I was 10st 8 eight weeks ago (still a bit podgy then) after losing a stone and a half but a holiday followed by eating everything under the sun has put meant I've put a lot back on.

We want to TTC towards the end of the year so I should be looking after my body, not stuffing my face!

So, 29, 5ft 4 and 11st 4

ClariceBeanTuesday Tue 27-Jun-17 11:58:22

A lot of us in the 10stone 8 club ( though I am shorter and therefore sadly fatter at this weight blush )

Good luck today everyone. Have just done an hour and 15 mins of classes at the gym and eaten a really odd brunch of carrot soup, mange tout and Turkey slices ( I work from home a lot so mealtimes a bit random around deadlines). I am doing a combination of moderate low carbing and generaĺly controlling my portion size and cutting out mindless munching. Several nights out on the horizon though which always ruins my plans confused . What are you all doing?

JuicyCake Tue 27-Jun-17 12:00:06

Feeling good today. Just a the end of AF, so energy levels will improve hopefully!

All Bran, milk, mixed seeds, almonds & prunes for breakfast. And tea, of course. And an apple just now.

Will move in to sugar-free breakfast (porridge / Greek yoghurt) once this box of All Bran is finished.

I've never counted calories or done points, so mostly I'll be trying sensible eating. I know what not to eat...

cherrylove Tue 27-Jun-17 12:01:26

Welcome Tea. smile

Hello can I join in? I've had DC2 and my weight loss has stalled. I'm currently doing C25K and trying to eat better. When I look at myself in the mirror it's like some sort of fairground distorted reflection looking back sad
I really just want to fit into my clothes, and have a bit of confidence. I hate going out in public worrying my buttons might pop. Hardly anything fits me. My aim is to have a December where I look nice for festive events.
Not entirely sure of weight- will weigh myself in the morning. I have about 16lbs to lose to get to "reasonable" but probably 25lbs to feel good.

cherrylove Tue 27-Jun-17 12:43:51

Hello Beep

Your buttons popping open made me smile. A few weeks ago I was at the airport saying goodbye to my son and I reached up to give him a hug and my bra burst open under the strain. 👙

Can I join too? I'm 5ft 6ins and reckon I'm about 13st 7lbs, although my scales are broken so am getting some new ones afternoon so I can weigh myself in the morning.

I was about 11st pre children (eldest is 5) so have loads to lose confused

cherrylove Tue 27-Jun-17 12:50:21

Dolly welcome to day one.

I'll join you ladies!
5'6 and 10.13 (I'm holding on to being just under 11 stone).
I've done a week of the three S's but I put a lb back on this morning so feeling cross with myself. Must have been Sunday's roast dinner.
Also just realised I have IBS and I can't eat lots of the healthy things I used to like nuts and seeds, whole grains etc.
I think I might need more drastic measures than the three S's.
