Or just encourage me? grin

I have a wedding to go to in 3 weeks, I know Im not going to loose alot, but If I can just loose a few Lbs it will probably make me feel better.

I just got a bike yesterday so will go riding everyday on that.

Plus I got myself a lovely new Mac coat in a 16, and Ive sent it back and re-ordered a 12! Positive thinking, (Im not trying to get to a 12 in 3 weeks! haha thats more of a long term goal!)

So anyone else want to loose a few lbs over the next 3 weeks?

Am tempted to put my weight now and see what it is on OCt 15th but am scared! lol

I need to lose one lb by wednesday grin as its my birthday and I'm just one pound away from my '5th' silver 7 at weight watchers and would be great to get it on my birthday and then be able to go for a pig out. Unfortuntely everytime I get on my scales my weight is either 1lb more than last week or just the same. Can see me starving myself on tuesday.

Okay, we are going away for half term and I need to get a grip of myself. Would like to lose half a stone by then.

I will eat sensibly and not snack in the evenings.
Might even try the gym again - haven't been for ages.

Personally the buying smaller clothes thing has never worked for me - I just feel like I've wasted my money!

If you post your weight I'll post mine!

hi dis

I will join you if you will have me?

I have been trying to shift the weight since having DS in May and I still can't quite get my 2 stone. I'm 2lbs from it but wanted to have 3 stone gone by the 31st of October!

I think my weight is 15st 3lb blush and im now hoping DH does'nt read my posts!

I need to get remotivated. Any tips on how to keep going sarahken as you have been doing great?

terri3 Tue 29-Sep-09 10:35:51

hi x

i will join you too!

i've been trying to lose weight for what seems like forever!
i'm now the heaviest i've ever been. my weight is 15st 1lb
i really want to lose at least a stone by xmas (more if i can).
am doing weight watchers diet. i lost 3st before doing it but have now put it back on plus a bit more blush

need to get motivated!!!

whyme2 Tue 29-Sep-09 21:24:04

I am feeling motivated now and ready to post my weight, ahem, 15st 2lb eek.
Earlier in the year I lost 1.5st but have put lots back on and got really discouraged.

Please post any tips, I need all the help I can get.

sarahken Tue 29-Sep-09 21:51:37

hi again * jigglypiggly* no tips really, just know I need to be at my target weight of 10st 1 lb by January as I can't go to a weight watchers meeting when I'm back at work. So need to become a gold member by then so I can attend for free when I'm on holiday from work.

Currently 11st 10.5 lbs, so got 1st 10lbs to go, and 4 stone down since May. If I have a day off (usually every wednesday) then I always make sure I get back on it the next day as a way of damage limitation as its so easy to pile it back on even quicker.

Hopefully I will have lost my 1lb tomorrow and I have some gorgeous choc tartlets from Tesco finest for my Birthday which are over 500 kcals each shock Think next week will be a bad weigh in as I'm away for a night out with hubbie , first one in 18 months so will probably go mad on alcohol and food grin

teadrinker Tue 29-Sep-09 22:38:11

OK I'm going to come creeping out if the 'fat cupboard' I've been hiding in

Can I join you in your weight loss campaign? I weigh 16st + and am horribly disgusted with myself to be honest.

Any ideas would be welcome!

After 2 kids I really don't want to be fat any longer.

terri3 Wed 30-Sep-09 00:04:33

wow sarahken! 4st since may.........thats fantastic!!! well done you! good luck for tomorrow hun x

well i've been really good today. i find that drinking a lot of water helps, although it does mean your running to the loo quite often lol.

teadrinker....i know what you mean. i'm sick of being the fat mummy. after 3 kids its time to get my body back to somewhere near where i'd lke it to be (although the chances of getting back my pre children body are about zero)!!!

sarahken Wed 30-Sep-09 21:47:07

Turns out I couldn't go to WW after all that as I had double booked with the doctors -all my hard work wasted. So will have to wait till next wednesday now. Will probably out on weight as had my 500 kcal cake and been to my local all you can eat chinese buffet for lunch. Away for the weekend also. So will be on bread and water between sunday to Wednesday- wish me luck grin

< holds hand out to teadrinker as she emerges from 'fat cupboard' >

Hi all, Wow 4 st Sarahken, am totally impressed. That is about How much I have to lose. How long has that feat taken you?

I think my motivation is my dcs really. I watched a tv prog about how much damage you can do to your kids with a crappy diet and setting a bad example. I want my kids to grow up healthy and fit without food issues (thanks mum).

teadrinker Thu 01-Oct-09 15:43:25

here here whyme2 grin I think I saw that show too and am on guilt trip not so much about what they eat but about the garbage I do.

To give some idea of what I need to do I was 14st when I got married (my 'ideal' is apparently 12-13st which is silly - I'm a tall gal)

Any ideas welcome

sarahken Thu 01-Oct-09 18:00:37

whyme2 I was 15st 10lbs in May, but that was when pregnant. My dd weighed 7lb 2oz, but when I came out of hospital and weighed myself a week after I was still 15st 2lbs. I managed to lose another stone in the follwing 10 days by eating healthy, and joined weight watchers in June (2+ weeks post birth) and weighed in at 14st 2.5lbs. Now I'm 11st 1lbs. Hoping to get to 10st 1lb by January 10th as that's when I have to return to work.

terri3 Thu 01-Oct-09 23:18:05

my 'ideal' weight is somewhere between 8-9st. i'm a shorty!!! am finding it hard to keep the motivation going at the min keep nibbling at things all the time. you've done great sarahken..........how do you keep yourself sticking to it?

JigglyPiggy Fri 02-Oct-09 10:35:16

Dis how you getting on?

Sarahken you are doing fantastic and deserve that cake! just make sure its WW bread & water from sunday grin

is everyone else following a set plan like WW?

maxybrown Sun 04-Oct-09 15:14:05

Oh gawd, wish I hadn't seen this. I am also the biggest I have ever been. Just can't get motivated. have some knee/feet issues that are stopping me from exercising at the min, (sounds likely but true unfortunately) but it also means I am in the house more and stuffing my face. Well not really stuffing my face actually. Just eating wrong things! I am about 12st 3 I think but very short so not good hmm Think I may have to get my brand new only ridden once bike out blush though I may need a knee replacement after that! hmm

paranoidandconfused Sun 04-Oct-09 15:42:18

ooh can I join?

I've joined ww the other week and so far have lost 3 1/2 lbs and am due to go tomorrow so fingers crossed

How do you become a gold member at ww, I was really shocked to find out you get charged even if you didn't go shock

I'm just outside of my BMI so only need to lose about 2 stone (as if it's that easy, only been trying for 4 years) but it's all around my middle so I resemble a higgly town hero at the mo grin

terri3 Sun 04-Oct-09 22:15:05

well done paranoid! and good luck for tomorrow x

i'm following ww but not attending the meetings. moneys tight at the min and just can't afford it. not lost any this week but then again went out for a curry at the weekend so not really that surprised. have stuck my tracker on the kitchen cupboard where i can see it all the time, i find its easier if i write down what i'm eating.

hope everyone else is doing well x

paranoidandconfused Mon 05-Oct-09 12:16:11

thanks terri haven't lost anything this week <boo> but then I haven't gained so just got to be better this week! grin

dinkystinkystein Mon 05-Oct-09 12:24:25

Count me in - am aiming on losing 1 kilo by my birthday next month. Have about 4 in total to lose to get back to baby weight but taking it slowly.

whyme2 Tue 06-Oct-09 12:56:46

Okay, I've lost 2lb so far and I'm feeling quite positive. I am focusing on no snacks/leftovers and sensible meals. I've also cut out alcohol.
Welcome Dinky, I'm going for a stone by the end of the year.
Got absolutely drenched this morning as I insisted on walking to town and back - good exercise.

paranoidandconfused Tue 06-Oct-09 13:28:02

yeah the weather's crap isn't it? grin

I was going to go for a walk this morning but just couldn't bare it will have to tomorrow though

JugularPiggy Tue 06-Oct-09 20:55:44

hi everyone

well i have finally done it - I got my 2 stone grin

I just need to shift a pound this week and im 14 stone something and not 15 woohoo!!!

whyme2 - i will join you in the getting rid of a stone by the end of the year if thats ok?

well done on the weight losses so far. Hope everyone else is off to a good start this week, I am going to do as terri3 says and write it all down and see if that helps.

sarahken Tue 06-Oct-09 21:29:54

Didn't even end up going to WW last week on my b'day as I'd double booked with the doctors. By my scales I had definately lost my 1lb I needed to get my 5th silver 7. Anyhow after my wedding anniversary, my birthday 'all you can eat chinese buffet' and cake, and then 8 alcopops and 2 takeaway teas on Friday night, I managed to put on 4lbs midweek. I think it has all come back off in the last few days. So who knows may have lost that stubborn 1lb, but probably not. At least I had a good time, and I haven't been out for 18 months, so definately deserved wink

paranoidandconfused you become a gold member when you are within a healthy BMI and have lost at least 10lbs. My weight should be between 8st 1lb and 10st lb- so 10st 1lb is when I become a gold member. I know its shocking they charge. I text our leader last week, and my sister who attends said they put me down as sick last week, so hopefully I won't owe £11 tomorrow hmm They always try and get me to sign up for monthly pass, but I know if I had prepaid I would be encouraged to have bad week and not attend.

sarahken Wed 07-Oct-09 12:39:00

Finally lost my pound and got my 5th silver 7- unfortunately now have sinusitis- so have had jumbo battered sausage and chips to make me feel better after the meeting grin
