    4 stone to lose.. come oooon!

    Ok. So I've been on this site before and tried exante but that was soo difficult. I will openly admit that I'm addicted to food so cutting it out completely was too hard!

    After being lectured by a mate on the 'science' of losing weight, I have to agree that calorie counting is the most sensible option that will work long term. So here I go. Calorie counting it is!

    I've put myself on 1200 calories a day and have allowed myself a treat once a week. I don't drink alcohol very often so my biggest battle is going to be portion size and not binge eating on crap!

    Wish me luck people ;-)

    I'm the same... 4 (maybe a little more) stone to shift. Love my food... Use it for comfort. I'm also tired thanks to my 16 month old being a really bad sleeper.., when I'm tired I turn to carbs!!! I also am studying towards a degree and like to have study snacks! So need to find healthy alternatives.

    Good luck! I've got about the same to lose.

    Snacking is my downfall, but I know from last time when I'm focused calorie counting really does work. You can do it!
    My weightloss diary

    Lost 5 stones to reach 168 lbs in 2011, but have managed to put 3 back on again! Let's not talk about that!

    Current goal:
    Lose the first stone (Feb '14)
    Lose the second stone 11lbs gone...

    End goal:
    Slim size 12, somewhere in the 10-11 stone ballpark.

    With 4 stone to lose you need to start your calories at around 1600 a day. Starting at 1200 gives you nowhere to go really as your weight reduces and starts to plateau

    Give that a go, keep n eye on your carbs and you'll see good results

    No.

    If you start on 1200 calories with 4 stone to lose, you'll eventually plateau and stop losing . You don't have a lot of adjustment room on 1200 cals a day

    I'd recommend you start on 1500 for the first few stone. Watch your carb intake and you'll see a good loss
