    Getting back on it!

    So my weight is 9 stone 13 as of 21/06 (not as bad as I thought but still a way to go!)

    Here are a list of small goals. I need small ones because I'm not looking to lose weight in a big rush.

    Lose that first pound!
    3 pounds lost (9st 10)
    5 pounds lost (9st 8)
    Half a stone lost yay! (9st 6)
    9 pounds lost (9st 4)
    11 pounds lost (9st 2)
    13 pounds lost (9st)

    I'll add some more goals as I start achieving them but this looks quite doable for me at the moment.


    Hello!

    I'm mainly just writing this so I can keep on track of what I'm eating. A couple of years ago I went from 13 stone to 9 stone in about a year. The past year I've found it hard to maintain my weight and it keeps creeping up but I'm too scared to weigh myself!

    With it practically being Summer I want to wear whatever I want but am struggling to fit in my nice clothes

    So here is my motivational picture to keep me on track (taken about a month ago). I know I'm not 'massive' but still bigger than I'd like to be. I'll hopefully weigh myself tomorrow!

    Day one!

    Oh by the way I estimate calories a lot because trying to find exact calories is so time consuming and boring.


    Weetabix, banana + milk = 250 kcal
    Leafy rice noodle salad + balsamic vinegar = 150 kcal
    Curried vegetable soup + soya cream = 500 kcal
    Soya yoghurt = 100 kcal
    Marmite rice cakes = 100 kcal
    Baked beans & Linda McCartney sausages = 350 kcal
    Piece of toast + marg = 150 kcal

    Total cals: 1600

    Hmm.. was aiming for lower than that but have been super hungry. I did go to Zumba class for an hour though. Maybe weighing tomorrow will shock me into doing better!

    Oh good for you getting back on the wagon so to speak!

    Do you have a smart phone/blackberry? Calorie counting used to frighten me half to death until I downloaded My Fitness Plan which has nearly ever food and portion known to man on there

    Hey, and welcome. You don't need a phone to use myfitnesspal. I haven't got it on my phone (because its not a bloody android (whatever that is) but thats another story). If you have got the internet then you can join. I highly reccomend it. It was introduced to me when I was on minimins saying the same thing as you. I couldn't work out how everyone was so accurate with their calorie counting and thought I was stupid, then I realised how they were doing it. Have a look and join up, then we can all add you as a friend.

    myfitnesspal.com

    Nothing is impossible. The word itself says, "I'm possible".

    So how can you do it too?

    You don't get it by
    Staring
    You don't get it by
    Wishing
    You don't get it by
    Drooling
    You don't get it by
    Hoping
    You don't get it
    Easy

    You get it by
    Getting off your ass
    Working for it
    Every second
    Of every day
    For the rest of your life.

    So I'm starting at 9 stone 13lbs and feeling motivated today.

    Porridge + raisins = 250 kcal
    Baked beans & Linda McCartney sausages = 350 kcal
    Tomato soup = 200kcal
    'Chicken' and vegtables = 320 kcal

    Hey, I know this is quite a personal question, but I'm nearly at my goal weight and I'm a little curious about maintenance. I know you said that you too reached goal, but then put a little of the weight back on - where do you think you went wrong? I'm just trying to get as much advice as I can
