ok have been dieting on and off since 8 years old...have a thyroid problem which is now being [hopefully] sorted out with thyroxin...my problem is after spending most of my life dieting have problem getting motivated...found the you are what you eat book [never saw the programme] and it looks like healthy eating which is what i am aiming for ,,,what i am asking for is each day first thing i will come on here and say ..another day another step towards the real me...and if i dont then i would like someone to cyber shout oi you !!as i am scared i wont carry on with it .....so thank you...oh also im not brave enough to say how much i have to lose but it is a lot....so this is a long term thread thank you in advance ...,aaa

Morning you You won't believe how effective it is having an online diet diary - makes you feel guilty if you do anything wrong because you don't want to come back and post it!!

It's really done the trick to keep me going - I'll keep an eye out for you too to make sure you don't give up!!

Ooh - forgot to say you will feel so much better when you get on thyroxin. My mum has taken it everyday for about the last 13 years and has to take it for the rest of her life but it makes such a difference

Also if you're interested there's a website i'm joining this week where you type in your details, add what foods you have eaten from their database and also what exercise you've done and it automatically works out all your calories for the day and your allowance - is also a good thing to keep you going

morning thank you i have been on the thyroxin for a couple of years but it doesnt stablise am on 300mg now! but i thought im not just going to wake up x stone lighter without giving this a final kick up the arse so here i go! it was so down hearting when i was on quite a low calorie diet plus gym 3 or four times a week and weight would stay the same!! so this time no calorie counting...im not going to say how many stones i am but i am 4 3/4 pounds over the stone im on if that makes sense so my first goal is to get under that stone...

swiperfox Mon 25-Apr-05 09:14:25

yep makes sense - I've been stuck on 13st 2/3/4/5/6 for bloody ages now and my first goal is to see a 12 on the scales lol!!

THe low calorie thing doesn't make much sense to me as you can still eat crap - just less of it!! This week i'm trying out the cereal for breakfast and lunch diet

almostanangel Mon 25-Apr-05 09:18:54

see we dont each much "crap" any way ..exept last week when mum was in hospital and i was usless and we had loads of takeaway "crap" tonight its fish and a stirfry...actually it was probely the fact i was on such low calories i didnt lose weight when i was going to the gym,,as my body said ok your not eating and your exersising im holding on to everything i cam ,,but at the time that doesnt help!

Im new on mumsnet but am finding it really hard to cope with, im only 18 and b4 i had dd i was a size 8/10 i used to go out clubbing every night and enjoyed my teenage years. Iv stopped the clubbing/drinking/smoking now as dd is too important to me but whats getting me down is iv gone from 9 stone 3 to 13 stone....i couldnt believe it im up to a size 16/18 and its really getting me down, i know il probably never get back down to aq size 8 but i cant even buy the clothes i long for in my size they just dont make them....over the past few days iv just stopped eating coz dieting hasnt worked....i know dd is only 6 months old but it feels like iv been huge forever and i cant stand it!!!! any suggestions to help would be gladly welcome!

almostanangel Wed 27-Apr-05 19:06:24
