    Some folk just don't think before they speak, and usually are the ones who have food issues themselves. I've had support and concerns expressed. My best friend who has her own weight issues won't acknowledge that I've lost weight, but one of my work colleagues couldn't be more supportive and encouraging. Takes a bit of getting your head round at times!
    Doing it for myself!

    Iv gained back from every diet i did, and they were all different But i understand why. I was as greedy as ever, got to goal and felt invinsible, thought i could get away with odd things, got too scared to weigh, then avoided them with fear and gained more. Takes me to get uncomfortably fat to then realise and start again. I never once learnt anything though and was ignorably clueless about nutrition and calories etc. Its shocking looking back really, how much work id put in to shift 5st and then go straight back to old ways.

    This time iv addressed my issues and mentality, Totally feel a different person its almost strange. Its going for good xx

    Oh I know ED.
    The scarey thing is, I do know about calories and nutrition, and it still happened portion control, I do struggle with
    Its too easy to become complacent about gaining the odd pound.... then they stsrt adding up.....
    My diary for all of last year shows it creeping in.... and becoming acceptable... because I didnt buy bigger clothes. ...
    I know I will always have to watch my weight. Always !!!
    But I will keep trying to be a healthy weight for ever
    I can't really do any more than that eh ?

    I think the reason people say losing weight slower is better is because for the majority of people it takes a long time to get rid of old habits and learn why they overeat and how to control it. I think being on a faster diet is fine, but you need to be mindful of these things as when you come off you don't want to be repeating old mistakes. I put on a little bit after I finished exante but it was over a year and managed to not go anywhere near my old weight because I could recognise when I was about to repeat the same mistakes. It's hard, it'll probably be a lifelong battle for me, and most other people that have been very overweight but it's possible and I have faith that all of us will get to the point where we can happily maintain around our goal weight, or at the very least not put too much back on xx

    Exactly.
    Im going to have a lower clothes size and weight cut off point. I didn't have that last time
    Size 16 jeans that I have at home just now from next is the size
    The weight will be more difficult to judge for me as I know if I exercise I will be smaller than if I don't. ....
    That's where I want to be just now... but it may be down scaled when I get there

    I havnt really known what clothes size i am for a long time, because i will continue squeezing myself into my size 12's until it becomes unbearable, then into my 14's intil i cant breathe. This helps me not address my weight until it is out of hand i guess. I see people dropping dress sizes on here and cant really announce any of that because im so muddled up with it all i dont know what i was and what i am.

    I have XL jumpers, 16, 14 and 12 and i wear and size 14 and 16 bottoms. I am almost 2 stone down and was wearing them things at the start... big case of denial was one of my problems! xx

    I think it's confusing too due to the different sizes in different shops and even in the same shop but different items. I can't fit into dorothy perkins jeans size 16 but I have a size 12 dress i can comfortably fit into by them. The majority of my clothes though are one size so I just class that as 'my' size. I seem to be a smaller size than others my weight which is strange, like at 17-18stone i wore size 18. around 15-16stone wore size 16 and now since last weigh in at 14st 3lbs and some of my 16s are getting too big. My friend is around 16 stone and wears size 18 and 20

    Sizing is difficult between the shops..... actually its more like a total minefield !!
    Anyway, I know what I want to get to, and that will be the biggest I will be, when I get to goal

    I managed to get to the gym in the end, last minute cancellation, so I was able to do an hour of spin
    I have a busy night now, so a quick catch up, then get on with my chores

    Hey Ladies, great discussions! My friend taught me to always take several sizes into the changing room and also at least two of the right size because they all fit differently and she is so right. No one at work knows I'm on a diet and I haven't had enough loss to be noticed yet but omg they never shut up about diets. They are all super fit MEN. I've had the Paleo diet crammed into me for HOURS, then there is the gym and fitness and walking, climbing, canoeing..... It's exhausting
    And don't even get me onto clothes and shoes... You think women can be bad...

    anyway, great attitude Marge and kudos for getting a last minute gym spin. Roll on those 14's !

    You know what Angel, your post has just planted a teeny tiny seed in my brain
    I think the next time, which will be every day for eternity , I going to start going on about very unhealthy food, or lazyitis , just to noise them up .... a wee bit of sport, and see who cracks first amoungst them all.... I know it wont be me
    I know I will get bored of doing that eventually, but sometimes ya just have to be a little mischevious (sp) eh ?

    Okay, off to torture myself now, as I need to make pancakes
    Good job its WI tomorrow, and I dont want to not have a loss at all !!
