Feels like a long wayto go.
I am joining you guys over here as although I have started on Slim Fast (5 days ago) I am subbing the shakes for meals on some occasions, so am predominantly calorie counting.
I started Slimming World back in January and lost a stone but for the last couple of months have re-gained some and haven't managed to get back in the zone at all. I was 14st 0.5oz when I started and as a shorty at 5ft 2, I need to weigh around 8st 7. I am currently weighing, as of last Wednesday, 13st 7 so that is still 5 stone to lose I feel like this is such a huge task and completely unachievable :(
Anyway I feel that I need a bit of a stricter regime, hence slim fast/calorie counting. I am following the Slim fast calorie allowance of 1360 calories and have found it to be ok. I haven't felt overly hungry at any point as I am also following the structure so am snacking plenty.
I hope I can achieve some of the great losses I have been reading on other people posts as they are so inspirational. My husband and I will have been together for 18 years in September and I would like to lose a bit of weight before then, plus it is my 35th birthday in October. My main aim is to lose as much as possible before this time next year. As I am going into my final year at university and would love some nice graduation photos :cool:
