I am bursting out of all of my clothes, I have decided to lose the offending stone.

Just weighed myself and I'm 10'8.

I could probably do with losing 1.5 stones but I'm setting a goal of one stone which will get me back into my clothes.

Fancy joining me?

Yes me too please!

Hello you two. Thank goodness I have you. I will need serious motivation.

Me! I’ve been trying to lose the same stone for about a year I’ve lost a whole two pounds so far.

@sweetkitty hi, let's lose it for good this time.

It'll be good to have some people to keep me accountable!

Would everyone be up for a weekly weigh in?

Yes, as much as it pains me to look at the number on the scales I think it's the only way blush

NeedsMotivation Fri 24-May-19 09:43:53

I'm starting out at 12st 4lb sad

teneight Fri 24-May-19 09:45:07

@NeedsMotivation unfortunately the scales are a necessary evil.

I weighed myself this morning but I'm guessing no one else did so maybe we can post our weight tomorrow morning.

@teneight good plan

Just found myself reaching for the biscuit tin. Then I remembered that I'm not allowed! This isn't going to be easy. I'm such a pig for junk food. grin

I’d like to join.
I’ve been going for about 5 weeks and as off tomorrow hopefully I’m 7 pounds down.
Want to lose a bit more than a stone but a group to keep me going would be good!

I was eyeballing calories but it was making me obsessive (have had eating disorders in the past) so relaxed it a bit now - I gained the weight through binge eating and hoping that by choosing generally healthy food and extra exercise I will lose it.

It’s my weigh day tomorrow so will see how it went!

I'd like to join as well. I have been a bit over weighted for a few years now, have lots of clothes that even though I can wear, don't feel comfortable in them. I have already lost (nearly) a stone since February, I would like to get rid of another one, it would actually be OK if it is a bit less than that.
My current weight is 67.5kgs (yesterday)
I think this is 10st 8pounds
I need some motivation

I'd like to join. My weight is so embarrassingly high I'm not going to use real numbers, but suffice it to say that 7 years ago I was 4 stone lighter.

I've been trying half-heartedly to get a grip on what I'm eating, but it's not really working. There is so much going on in my life and I think I'm probably peri-menopausal, that I eat to stay awake and keep going.

My clever plan is to start by trying to eat fruit or veg with every meal and avoiding grains, which don't suit me at all. Just Eat Real Food and all that. Good luck, everyone.

Can I join please? My motivation and self restraint is almost non-existent but I can’t even look at myself in the mirror anymore so I need to do something about my weight blushsad

Namastbae Fri 24-May-19 19:39:44

Yes I'd happily she'd a stone. 10lbs would even do nicely. I'm in.

Olliphant Fri 24-May-19 19:41:03

Me, indeed 1.5 to go, but 1 would-be excellent.. are you doing a weigh in every Monday or something?

Peabody25 Fri 24-May-19 19:51:36

Me! 11st 7lbs, so a stone would be brill. What meal plans/ diets are you all doing if any?

I keep losing the same few pounds all the time, getting down to 11st ish, over indulging then putting it all back on.

hopeful31yrs Fri 24-May-19 22:14:41

Been dieting on/off since January but seriously since the end of April. Have lost 1 stone and have another to go! 66.3kg and want to be 60kg come July.

Can I join in? My starting weight was 10.8lbs this week but I have been doing 16:8 and lost 4lb.
This includes a few fitness classes and walking places rather than taking the car.
I've been exercising for a while and although my muscle weight has increased I feel my body shape didn't change much.

I'm hoping for a stone then maybe another 7lbs because nothing fits and I've never been so big in my life other than during or after pregnancy.
I'm so uncomfortable and it's affecting my self esteem, not to mention my joints Hurt and I'm constantly bloated.

I'm a binge eater with a history of ED so I think some support would really help.

So I started this week. 16:8.
Swapped coffee for herbal tea
Fast until 2 (I'm a night time picker, never bothered about brekky)
Ive found that in my eating window I'm not overdoing it.
I'm keeping tabs on my calorie defecit on MFP, this is set at 1200.
So far this week I've had enough self control to walk right past the quality street yoghurts that were on offer in Asda, I've not had a bit of chocolate, and I've not had any crisps or lattes and no late evening bowls of cereal.
I've also stopped drinking glass after glass of full fat milk.

All the conflicting advice out there about what to eat has puzzled me so much in the past but the 2 things I really want to address are my sweet tooth and drinking calories in the form of lattes/ caramel Iced frappes etc.

I've been so tired with this diet but I know this will change as my body adjusts, plus serious heartburn. I'm in this for the long haul and according to a guy I follow on YouTube this will go away if I persevere.

I have went over my calorie defecit today but I'm not beating myself up.
Tmorro is a new day and I will push through.
I've taken a picture of my body and weighed myself on Monday and I pkan to do this every Monday morning to track my progress.

Good luck everyone.
Here's to fitting comfortably into some nice summer clothes and not hiding under cardis. flowers

This is just the thread I was looking for. I could have written the OP except for being a stone heavier. Just over 2yo who hasn't slept through the night for more than 2 days in a row ever and a job i am not happy in has led to some serious comfort eating and I am my heaviest ever not including pregnancy.11st 5. Change starts today! (Although of course my inner saboteur is whispering 'you could start on Monday! Just enjoy the weekend' Spoiler alert : Monday never comes.) Good luck all.

Good morning all,

I'm so happy that you are joining me, hopefully having this thread will keep us all motivated.

As I started this thread yesterday I will be having my weigh day on a Friday and my starting weight was 10'8.

My problem is chocolate and sweet food, I have no cut off point, I just eat until it's all gone and then I just buy more.

Have a good day, and be good!
