    Feels like a long wayto go.

    Hi

    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

    Hi Mel *waves*

    Here to sub, well done on your loss so far and for being so dedicated, i think having clear goals help you to stay as focused as possible (we all fall of a little sometimes) x

    What are you studying? x

    It's not unachievable at all, hon, and you've made a fantastic start! I had at 10 stone to lose when I joined this site, and it's been a huge help. Have you checked out the WEMITTS section, under Slimming Clubs? It's for people with a lot to lose, and it's a very active and supportive part of the forum. All the best! xx

    I'm doing a literature degree. I absolutely love it, even though it can be extremely stressful at times, it is one of the best things I have ever done
    I am hoping my goals will keep motivated to keep going when times are tough.

    Wow you have done amazingly well I will have a nosy over there as soon as I get a chance, thank you


    I am determined to lose this weight even if it takes a year or more. I will probably assess how I am feeling once I get to the 9-10 stone bracket. It may be that I feel comfortable by that point.

    Day 6 today and I am feeling positive again today. I need to grab some fruit from the little co op on the way back from the school run as I have nothing to snack on.

    Have a good day everyone

    You can do it!!! I'm proper rubbish and I'm 5 stone down and counting.

    The only way you will fail is to give up... so remember to keep going and don't give up. Xxx

    Thanks for all the replies.

    I think the key is definitely dont give up... I will definitely keep going. Thankfully I am finding calorie counting pretty easy so far and dont feel too deprived yet so that is a bonus

    A year is a long time, slow and steady wins the race as they say and like everyone says keep at it don't give up you will do it!! Im sure by your graduation u will be looking and feeling fab! Are you doing any exercise to speed up your weight loss? I know I havent had a massive amount to lose but exercise as made sch a difference to my figure honestly, ive been going about 6 months now and I can see the difference I first started with zumba, body balance (yoga,pilates,tai-chi mixed into 1) then kettle size (that toned me up so much!) now body pump (hard) bit of gym when I fancy it as I prefer classes. Kettlesize hurts at first but it burns body fat and creates lean muscle its ace I love it. Anyway just a thought for you xx

    Hi Laura,

    Did you find your weight loss slowed down or gained when you started with exercise?
