    Hello :)

    Hi Everyone, Im Kim, Not quite new to MiniMins just haven't been around for a little while.
    I'm really lacking in motivation at the mo And could do with some friendly support to push me further,
    I'm on diet recommend by my doctor and so far so good!
    Its not your usual diet - but still within the calorie counting section, so i think i have come to the right place.

    A little bit about me - well for the past 8 years i have gone between 9 stones, up to 11 stone 7 lbs then right up to 14 stone 7lbs
    i Have probably been on every diet known to man! mainly faddy type diets, with as you can imagine no success.
    Over the past year I have just started to give up -
    Christmas was a nightmare for me as there was 12 people there and i was fattest everyone else being size 8 - 10.(The Girls i mean)
    (which far outnumbered the boys)

    It upset me, but gave me some much needed to motivation to not be the biggest one next year!
    I went to see my doctor - the only place i haven't been for weight loss advice!
    And he suggested something which shocked me - But told me to do it and so far i Have lost 6lbs,
    So for now ill stick with it, and i am just introducing some mild walking into it - which i started yesterday
    I would love to get to 13 stone by my birthday 27th February - which i haven't seen that on the scales for at least 3 years
    Looking forward to meeting you all and following you on your journeys
    Kim xx

    Hi Kim

    Welcome back. I've only been here a few weeks but there's lots of help and support as you already know.
    I'm calorie counting for the first time and am doing ok but I do lack in motivation sometimes. This might sound nuts but I get up and look in the mirror. I dont like looking at myself so looking in the mirror reminds me why I'm watching what I eat and walking on my treadmill.
    Doesn't always work tho! Lol

    Hope your having a good day
    Sharon

    I really only walk for exercise, although currently day 4 in to 30 day shred.. I try and do at least 100 minutes of walking a day.. Aww bless you, I hope your feeling 100% soon, not the easiest being ill at the start of a diet! Xx

    Hi SuperGroovy Thanks for the welcome!! xxx
    I dont really want to say what my doctor suggested - as i think i may get slammed for it, And i really dont want to get into an argument with anyone..... ...
    I know people have firm views & opinions on it - and i dont really want to promote what im doing either -
    But if i could lay it down before i tell you what it is, well fingers crossed people dont go to mad,
    I find its working for me - i feel happy & healthy with weirdly much more energy than when i started it, Im taking multivitamins and drinking my taps dry!
    And Im losing weight which is the main thing & above all im happy with what im doing..... so here goes.
    My doctor isnt one to mince words he doesn't believe in the starvation mode myth He basically said eat less do more.
    its not rocket science..
    So he suggested intermittent fasting or only eating one good meal a day. But ive still been eating a toffee crisp every night too!
    Ive stuck with only eating one meal a day.
    He told me to come back in a month & he bets ive lost a stone - 6lbs off already and over two weeks until my appointment.

    I have my own views and opinions on eating i realise that breakfast is the most important meal of the day to some people .. but not to me.
    I also find it sicking how the cereal company's make billions every years promoting how important it is too.
    David blane lost 56lbs in 44 days not eating stuck in a box - so not sure where the starvation mode things fits in there,
    In a nut shell i feel happy with what im doing and feel something is finally working for me.

    And if i can add too, My partner did also join me and has also lost 1 stone he was 20stone hes now 18st 13lbs

    So the diet is 1 meal a day? Someone on my MFP is fasting every other day, and my friend eats 300-400cals a day as her diet, although i find she struggles extremely with it. Do you think the doctor will ask you to go up in cals after this 'honeymoon' period.

    Anyhow, hello! Have you lost a stone now?
    I've been on SW, WW and calorie counting, I've tried other diets but SW and CC worked best for me, SW though right now can't work as I'm agoraphobic and going to a meeting is too 'traumatic' for me and I work shifts so can't always guarantee I'm free and I don't think swapping classes all the time will help me. So CC it is I struggle with motivation, for exercise and eating, I tend to eat out of boredom and emotional issues. xx Will keep popping in. x

    Hi PandaNate Im sure he probably will ask me too - but tbh im quite happy doing as i am, for the moment - But i do realize that i might struggle committing to it long term. But im just going to see how it goes for now & take each day as it comes
    I'm with you with the motivation thing - especially with exercising,
    My troubles have always been with the scales - i hate them darn things.
    especially when Ive been working hard all week stuck to diets and done 1hrs of exercise a day - ill weigh myself at the end of the week & gutted to see i haven't lost an ounce - Thats a huge motivation killer for me - i'm really looking forward to following you on your journey,
    Ive just noticed you've lost 3lbs already that's brilliant ! you must be chuffed - Thats over a bag and a half of sugar already! well done xxx

    I think extreme diets can work to kick start your diet enough for you to keep going, but tbh as long as your body IS getting what it needs, people go on about how much you should eat when really what I just said is all that matters. Fuel for the body is what it is haha.

    Just made my first meal from The Hairy Dieters Gorgeous...! I lose pretty quickly the first week, 3lb is about average for me, I have gained 1.5lb back due to the stress I've had the past week but it'll come off if I'm good over the weekend. It's when I hit 7lb loss that my body then struggles. I'm considering doing a binge day once a month, a lot of gym instructors have told my friends who go the gym that having a day where you actually go over cals by say 500/1000 can shock your body into losing after a month of strict on target eating. We'll see though, it might not suit me but it's about experimenting I think, I'm not on any timeframe.
