    Re-starter

    I'm starting again almost from scratch. I did weightwatchers for 2 years, lost 31lb in the first year, then our leader changed and I gained 29 of the 31 back. (New leader was all about the filling and healthy and well, i certainly managed filling, but the 29lb gain suggests I screwed up on the healthy!)

    I've decided to try calorie counting and rewarding myself with non-food treats this time.

    I've downloaded some exercise sheets and trackers from the NHS website and am hoping to have a bit more success this time.

    First challenge is to lose 8lb and drop under the stone barrier back into the 20s not the 21s. Have promised myself a new pair of earrings for that one.

    Wish me luck?

    Good luck! Have you checked out the WEMITTS part of the forum, under Slimming Clubs? It's for forum members who have quite a bit to lose, regardless of what plan you're on - it's really good for motivation and support. xx

    The best way to start again, is by making a specific plan of action of what you want to active by a certain time frame. Set monthly goals, which you need to measure, and adjust as you among. Be as specific as possible.
