    How ambitious is your goal?

    My goal has always been around 11 stone because that takes me into the normal weight range, but it's the top end. I've decided there's nothing stopping me getting lighter, if I stick to this diet, then I WILL lose weight, so I can choose whatever I want.

    I think I'm going to aim for 9 and a half stone. What do you reckon? Crazy or achievable? The lightest I've ever been is 10 stone 10lbs.

    I've got a lot to lose so my initial goal is to get to 12 weeks on SS without falling off the wagon. Today is day 1 so that's about 1st week in April!

    Don't want to make my goals to ambitious incase it's too distant I lose sight of it.

    Your goal sounds achievable if you stick 100%. That's the great thing about CD, we know if we stick to it the weight will come off.

    Good luck x

    I have 9 stone to lose to get to the upper end of my weight range.
    My first goal is to get under 40 BMI - so that's 16 stone, I think 3.5 stone sounds a more realistic goal than straight for the 10 stone!!
    The lightest I've been was 14 stone when I was 21, 15.5 stone after having both my children at 30 and the last 4 years it's piled on. I've no idea what a size 12 would even look like on me lol

    I like the idea of splitting it down into achievable goals. Goal one for me is 'not obese' which is a depressing goal but never mind!

    I just wish I could stop being obsessed with the diet and the end goal. If I could just see it as a way of life for the time being instead of wishing it away, then an extra 4-6 weeks wouldn't seem that impossible. Stupid brain! It's like I see it as putting life on hold, why do I think like that?

    I swear I spend 90% of my waking time thinking about it, it's insane! I'm only on day 5 so hoping as I get used to it then it'll just be life.

    My downfall last time, was people 'warning' me that I'd lost too much while I was still overweight. They said I was gaunt, which was an insane thing to say, given my weight at the time. People thinner than me were telling me I was too thin. Too thin for who?

    I need to find a way to live while on the diet so I can last longer on it. It means I might need to be ruthless about who I spend time with, I can't be around saboteurs feeding my inner doubts!

    I think other people is the hardest thing to cope with. Please tell me it isn't just me!

    Here is my new mantra. Thin people resist temptation all the time, the 'I want that but won't' feeling will never be over. There is no end date unless I want to be fat forever.
    "If you're tired of starting over, stop giving up!"

    Next goals:
    Get into size 12s (very nearly!)
    Get under 13 stone DONE!
    Get under 13 stone at the end of the day, fully clothed. DONE!
    12 week mark! DONE!

    First 12 weeks

    Week one DONE!
    Week two DONE!
    Week three DONE!
    Week four
    Week five

    I know exactly what you mean - my CDC said goal one was under 40 BMI, then 30 which would make me just 'over weight' lol

    I haven't told many people because the negativity is horrible - you shouldn't lose it too quickly, you'll only put it back on blah blah blah!
    I've switched off to all of this and decided to go with the people on here, who've actually done the diet so know what they're talking about.

    I'm on day 5 too - what day is your weigh in? I haven't looked at the scales which normally I would do, when I step on the scales on Friday day 8 I know I'll have done 100% and nothing to deter me from it.

    We can do it!!!!

    I haven't weighed myself, I can't face it! I started in July and then took a break but haven't put it all back on yet so I'm taking that as my start weight. I'll start weighing after 2 weeks to allow for initial big losses so I don't get too depressed.

    Hi all, I am on day 1 of SS my overall goal is to lose 5 stone but that seems so far away. My first goal is to lose 2 stone before I return to work in 7 weeks after maternity leave. My second goal is to stick to SS for a further 10 weeks, I start a new job on the 28th April and hopefully I'll be very close to goal...It does not seem so bad now I have broken it down a bit.

    Hiya FunnyFarm (great name by the way and I think i'm actually from there too lol)

    Being in the 'not obese' category is not a depressing goal at all hun. I think many on here are striving to the 'obese' category.

    I also think many will agree, being obsessed with the diet and the end goal is very normal. I think we obsess to keep outselves on the straight and narrow. 4-6 weeks isn't that long! Just think of a time such as a holiday when you had 6 weeks to go until you flew off to the sun. Before you knew it, I bet you were saying 'OMG I go away tomorrow' - it will fly by. In some ways were are 'putting our lives on hold' - how many people stop socialising, refusing invites and saying 'I can't because I don't want to go off plan?' I know I do because it's too much of a temptation.

    90% wow - you're a mere beginner lol - I must be nearer 99% and if it's not thinking about the plan, it's thinking about food. I'm on day 7 and I will shortly start 'sniffing' bread - how mad is that?

    The old 'people thinner' syndrom. Listen hun the chances are they feel threatened! Competition for them!! To thin for them is what they mean.

    Sorry to say this but the only person who can sabotage your plan is YOU!!! I totally understand you not wanting to spend time with people who are negative about the plan, I feel exactly the same but NO-ONE forces you to eat - only YOU have control over what you put into your mouth (hope this doesn't sound too harsh because that's the last thing I want).

    Other people are definitely the hardest to cope with. I know as I start losing weight the worst person will be my HUSBAND. I think it's because he is worried I will start getting attention from other men (OMG I can't wait lol). I love my husband end of!

    Actually, thin people don't resist temptation, they are just more controlled the rest of the time!

    You will do absolutely fantastic on this plan, just remember that and get yourself on here for brilliant support.

    My normal BMI would be between just under seven stone to about 9 stone. I haven't decided what weight I want to be as I am more bothered about my how I look in my clothes plus being 49 I need to make sure I don't overdo it lol

    I think chopping in into bite size chunks, like many on here, is a great idea. I just want to see a 12 at the front of my weight, I will then look to getting below the half stone mark and then under 11 and so on.

    I've not worn jeans for about 4 years now due to my size and I can't wait to get back in my jeans.

    I break it down by 7lbs increments and get a small reward at each ( not good!) works as you're only looking a 2-3 weeks before you're next reward based on an average person losing a stone a month. Really helps me keep focused.

    Good luck everyone x

    Rewards are good. When I did LL, I lost 7 stone and every stone I lost my boyfriend bought me a silver sterling bracelet. I intend for the same thing to happen this time, but this time I think my reward will be REALLY good skincare products (serums, acidic toners, exfoliating lotions, moisturizers etc) . I like to really research my products before I decide what one to go for so instead of obsessing about food I can obsess about my next skincare treat until I lose each stone.
