    Minus 117 :)

    Hi everyone

    Long time lurker here, but finally joined today.
    I have 117 lbs to lose and I am so excited to be a part of minimins now and get started on my mission to shed those lbs.
    My head has been in the wrong place for a while now, but now it's in the right place and I'm sooo ready for this.

    I would like to get to 200 lbs to start with, then take it from there, so as of today - Monday 14th October 2013, I have 117 lbs to go.

    I've always been bigger, and over the last few years, I've slowly been piling on those pounds.

    My partner and I both work for an oil company and we work long hours - leaving the house at 7am, getting home at 6.30pm, so we are always eating out (it doesn't help living in the city centre and having take aways and restaurants at our doorstep!), and cooking is the last thing on my mind after a hard days work! But no excuses now.....

    My photo was in the local newspaper last week and I was disgusted with the way I look. It was a full body shot, and that made me realize that I have to do something about my weight NOW


    My plan is just to watch what I'm eating - healthy, plenty of fruit and veg to begin with, protein, and cut out all the rubbish esp alcohol!
    I'm 100% ready now to change my eating habbits and to get more exercise....

    I have the willpower!

    Hello!

    Welcome to WeMITTS - I was one lb less than you last June and now I am at 21st. I haven't been in the local paper like you but I also work long days and have been big since my high school days (I'm 28 now).

    It is hard to get your head round some aspects of losing weight, even now having been on WW since June 2012 (with a break when my meeting closed) I can, without thinking, easily pick up something very unhealthy as that is what i have always done for many many years. However, I am on a journey to re-educate myself and now take time to think about what I will have during the week and go to Asda and stock up. There are so many healthy foods (and dead tasty) around now too which make it easier.

    So good luck on your journey, when the weight starts coming off it gives you a proper buzz. I went to WI this morning and lost 4.5lbs - I did have a weird 2.5lb gain last week which I didnt understand (thats another thing that can happen - you can gain weight and you wont know why) but it's come off with more and I feel like I am on a high

    Tina xx
    Previously tried Weight Watchers and got from 22st 8lbs at my heaviest but SW is the best

    Hi Tina

    Thank you so much!
    That's exactly what I'm doing, re-educating my self and taking time to think about what I eat.
    Can't wait to get on the scales on Monday and see a loss - this will motivate me even more.
    We can do this : )

    Day 2

    Well yesterday was my first day on plan and it went well!

    Breakfast in the office
    Bowl of Special K cereal with a tiny bit of milk. (I really dislike milk, so when I say tiny, I mean tiny! Just enough to make it not dry)
    An apple
    Green Tea

    Lunch
    Tin of Weight Watchers Chicken soup
    An apple
    Green tea

    Afternoon Snack
    Banana

    Dinner at 7.30 pm
    Bag of Asda veggies done in microwave - broccoli, cauliflower & carrots (so delicious and easy!)
    Weight Watchers lemon & chicken risotto

    So drinks was 2 cups of green tea and water.
    I am lucky enough to have a water cooler in my office, so I just kept filling up my cup. (And peeing every 20 minutes!)

    Bring on today x

    Good luck - I am sure you will do really well on Monday!

    I also work long hours and know how easy it is to fall into the habit of picking up crap. But if you actually look quite a lot of places do offer healthy options. Also the occasional chicken kebab without sauce is OK (at least in my head)! I figure I have to have occasional treats once a month otherwise I won't stick to it.

    Keep drinking

    Thank you for the kind comments everyone

    I've had a terrible headache from lunchtime yesterday. I've been guzzling the water constantly.
    Before, I would drink perhaps 3 cans of Pepsi Max in the office, then pints of Diet Coke in the evening.
    Since Sunday, I haven't had any fizz.... just water and green tea so I think my headache is to do with that! Who knows, but it's my mission to give up the fizz!

    Yes, that definitely sounds like caffeine withdrawal! I got that when I went cold turkey from the mega strong black coffee I drink, lol. I still drink it, but in moderation now! Maybe just allow yourself one or two, or a coffee? No point being in pain needlessly. xx

    I thought it was something to do with that!
    I got into such a bad habbit with it, infact that's all I would drink. I am not a fan of tea or coffee, so cans of fizz it was

    I'd maybe cut down more gradually then, if I were you. I used to drink a lot of fizz, but now only have it when we eat out. But I'll never give up my coffee, lol. xx
