I had my first weigh in on Friday, so almost halfway through my first week. I've got 3 stone to lose, but set a goal of 18lbs by the end of April

I'm on day one (again). Lost five stone six years ago but I found it again, mainly over the last two years. I set up my own business and I've been so busy that convenience food has seriously crept I to our diet along with regular missing lunches and snacking on crisps and snack bars.

I've not joined a group as I know what I'm ment to be doing just need to find my routine and cook fresh more.

I'm hoping to be quite strict for the next few weeks as I need to get a routine going.

Me!! Iโ€™m the heaviest Iโ€™ve ever been 5โ€11 and weighing in at 100.7kg. At my lowest weight I was 74kg. A series of poor food choices under active thyroid giving up smoking and not being accountable has led to this so here I am feeling pretty determined although it is only day one Crown Blush I have also started a sw Instagram account if anyone wants to motivate/ encourage one another sw_weightlossathome

I started again yesterday but so tempted to start next Monday as we have a houseful of food, chocolate, biscuits and cheese to finish from Xmas.

I've restarted a quite a few times. The first time I lost a few stone and got pregnant. Second time I lost 5.5stone but have put it back on because I love chocolate, bread and biscuits

I have set my self a target of 5 st and a small target of 2 stone by April - Easter.

I find it so hard with the kids around when they are eating chocolate and treats

Day 2 has gone well but I've felt hungry and had to stop myself a few times. Tuesday night is homemade pizzas in our house so I had a jacket potato with tuna and lighter than light mayo plus lettuce and tomatoes. White bread/ bread dough and I don't mix. I love it but it has quite a big effect on my loss, way beyond calories.

I've walked out to town and got lots of nice fruit in plus plenty of eggs. I need to get a selection of go too foods for when I've been too busy to make lunch and to stop me eating other easy to eat foods that are in the house with two energetic teens and soon to be nine year old.

Anyone else have some go too recomendations?

I'm wearing a size 18 so I don't need to look at the number on the scales to know I need to shift a fair bit. Last time I comitted to this, I became scales obsessed and at one point weighed myself morning, sometimes during the day and before bed. This time I planning on just seeing how I feel in my clothes and when they get baggy enjoy getting the next size down.

Yesterday was a nightmare as I spent so much time running around with my dc. But I did manage to stay on the plan, but only because I'd pre-made some leek and potato soup and put pasta in it, so when I came home at 3 starving I could heat it up.

Oh good idea about the burger, I might do one of those on the weekend

Re Christmas food, I took a load of unopened stuff to the food bank otherwise I'd still be eating it now.

I want to lose 18lbs by the end of April. I'm going on a biking holiday and if I don't my leathers will be so uncomfortable and I won't be able to put my heated clothes underneath.

After that I want to lose another 18 by the end of July for my summer holiday, that them leaves me a further 7 to hit farther

@RippleEffects I've put my scales away otherwise I get obsessed too. I'll have one weigh in a week at SW and then that's it. I'm already starting to obsess about wearing the same thing each week Hmm

Hope everyone has had a good day.
I had a very stressful day at work but being prepared with tons of food has really helped. So been good. No syns yet except a mint and some chewing gum to ward off the smell of my eggs for lunch and breakfast!

I rejoined for the fourth and final time on Tuesday.

I lost 3st originally with SW and have gained off and on since. I weigh 14st 12.5lb so have almost 4st to lose and keep off.

When I'm in the right mindset I'm fine. I've stuck to plan since weigh in and am feeling determined and confident.

Planning meals definitely helps.

Day four has had its challenges.

Taken my youngest to look around a new school then out with her friend for lunch. I had a jacket potato no butter but grated cheese, quite a bit of cheese. I ment to not eat it all but then the dish was almost clear.

I had a small bowl of rice with eggs, diced chicken and peas for tea. Not enough veg in that but its a quick family forkable favourite, so I need to work out what to add to the essentially healthy dish to make it more on plan.

I had a diet coke too today. I was only going to have coke in lieu of alcohol as a treat when I wanted it at the weekend. I think I need to try some flavoured teas to add variety to my drinks.

Shopping tomorrow am so need to write a list.
