Need some weight loss motivation!

Help!

I need some motivation. I am 2-3 stone over weight and I really need to get it off.
I have tried SW - lost 3/4stone, very slow and I got bored of it.
Tried low carb high fat for a few weeks but it's just too extreme I think for me.
What can I try? I think my main issue is sweet things, so perhaps cutting down on sugar might be a good start.
I just need a good kick up the backside! Some one come and shout at me Blush

Lori - I'm assuming wrong thread, but incase you're reading, for food stains sometimes drying the item in sunshine helps. Has got tomato soup out for me before!

My vice is takeaways :(

If you cut down sugar for a week (to start with) I'll not have a takeaway for a week!

Deal?!?

I'm seriously struggling with motivation too!

I read a book about food addiction recently and it really struck a chord so I've made a list of my "trigger foods" (stuff that I can't just eat, I have to binge on, or unhealthy things that I feel I can't live without) and I'm planning to gradually cut them out of my diet.

I've had no bread since Monday as I know I can't just have a slice, I need to eat half a loaf. This Monday I'm quitting all bread based things eg crumpets, wraps etc. Future weeks will be things like chocolate, wine etc. Can't stick to a full diet but maybe this way I can improve what I'm eating and lose weight gradually!

Yes Rockchick, I reckon cutting down on one thing at a time is maybe a good way to not get overwhelmed.
And also the notion of 'trigger' foods is interesting. I feel like once I have one sweet thing I can't stop. I need to be able to control myself. It's funny because I have smoked and found it relatively easy to stop (many years ago now) but stopping sweet things is much much harder!

I found that cutting back alcohol really helped - not just saving the calories in it, but also not becoming so relaxed that nibbling (especially cheese) seemed a good idea.

Ahh this is the place for me. I need/want to lose 1.5-2 stone. I have so many good reasons to do it on paper: to fit back into my old and lovely clothes, to feel confident at some family dos I have coming up and ultimately to prepare my body for TTC #2. Despite this, I have no motivation.
I've been binging on chocolate and bread. I just need a big boot up the backside!

Ppandj - you kick mine, I'll kick yours?

Since starting this thread I am no further forward. I really need to address the sugar - it's a real issue for me. I'm on the hunt for some good books on quitting sugar....
