    Cool sat pondering ?? whats the answer ..

    Hiya all I have a huge annoying yoyoing problem going on, I am half way through a paid up 6 week pass in slim world but bored silly with the plan and really don't think I can face going back even tho the consultant is a close friend and I have many friends there, I have been stagnant at 20st 11lb for weeks I have gone back onto WW plan for 2 days and scales are moving again obviously this is telling me my body reacts to this plan better, the easy way would be to rejoin WW which is a Thurs am and very local a 10 min walk away after I have dropped my son off in school, but the consultant there bores me to tears so a huge dilemma stay miserable in SW attempt group again at WW or weigh with my hubby once a week put the fiver in a savings pot instead ??

    Is anyone doing similar or are you all having success at group xx My goal is to lose 6stone7lb I have lost 7 stone between the 2 plans over the years..
    My first goal is to get into next stone -3.5lb.
    My second is to lose 7lb

    My third to get to 20st 7lb -

    Hi Karen

    As you've seen from my diary, I've just started CCing and really like the freedom it offers. Others here have had amazing success with it, so maybe consider that? I've ummed and ahhed for the best part of four years - Atkins, Harcombe, SW, and so on - but always come back to CCing

    All the best whatever you decide hun, we're here to help x

    Well first of all well done on the 7 stone weight loss so far, that is amazing!!

    I am calorie counting using myfitnesspal (it's a website and you can get the app on your phone) and it's going great

    If you get your hubby to weigh you just think of all the money you'll have saved!
    No-one can make the decision for you of course but I know what I'd choose (weigh in at home)

    You can use mfp to track your calories and stick around here for support because we are all awesome






    Week 1) -8lb Week 2) -5lb Week 3) -3lb

    Just because you go to a particular meeting doesn't mean you have to follow their plan. I am a member of weight watchers and have lost weight using the points system. But recently I have been using my fitness pal and counting calories that way. Counting calories is so much easier than having to calculate the points value of everything.

    However I do find going and getting weighed helps, one because I feel their scales are more accurate than the ones I have at home, and I also think having someone else weighing me makes me that bit more determined to make sure ive lost weight that week.

    So maybe you could try using my fitness pal but still go to the meetings to keep track of your weight loss? Because I know for me personally if I dont have a formal weigh in each week then I will go off track.

    But congrats on the weight loss...and I hope you find something that suits you so you can enjoy your weight loss journey

    Thanks everyone you all make total sense, I will def join mfp in work later lol, (boss is away haha), and probably mix WW and CC for a while to be honest I see them as identical really 40pp=1600 plus fruitn veg this is where I dont like SW fruit and veg still has cals no matter how they butter it up..

    I am going to be brave and weigh with hubby on a Sat am for the next few weeks he is as good as gold to be honest never a critic then will decide if I want to rejoin ww when kids go back to school.

    Alex your exact weight is what I have been chasing since last August I have probably wasted hundreds and hundreds all year the last time I was 19.13lb was last week of AUGUST LAST YEAR !!! so exactly what I have been doing isn't working is it Time for work.
    My first goal is to get into next stone -3.5lb.
    My second is to lose 7lb

    My third to get to 20st 7lb -

    I think you will find my fitness pal really helpful. I certainly did. I found that if I didn't know or couldn't work out the pro points for something then I would just have it anyway and not count it. Calorie counting gives you a lot more freedom and you really can fit a lot of food into one day if you plan and choose the right foods...but you'd be amazed how fast they can disappear after a few snacks!

    And with regards to my weight loss. I have been struggling for ages to get under the 20stone mark. But now I've done it...ive never been so motivated to carry on!
    Good luck!

    Can't you attend one group but secretly follow the diet of the other?

    Alex mentioned calorie counting which is what I am doing.

    Please look at this it's what I ate today. It is my diary from MFP I have a 1700 allowance but have only used up 1200 and am not hungry so am going to bed now, leaving it at 1200. And that included a chocolate bar! So take a look at the attached.sat pondering ?? whats the answer ..-14aug.jpg

    In 2010 I weighed 366lb (26 stone 2).
    By 2014 I had only lost one stone.
    Started current diet at 352lb on 9th August 2014

    Minigoal 1 Get under 25 stone ~ HIT!
    Minigoal 2 Get into the 23 stone bracket ~ HIT!
    Minigoal 3 Reach 324 = two stone lost since August
    Minigoal 4 Get into the 22 stone bracket
    Minigoal 5 Reach 299lb = in the 200s
    Minigoal 6 Get into the 21 stone bracket
    Minigoal 7 Reach 19 stone 13... so I am no longer in the "20 stone plus" range

    366 lovely,you REALLY need to eat more. It's not a lot to sustain your weight loss - you might find it tailing off and probably stopping all together at that level. I know you were worrying that you were overeating before at 1700 when it wasn't really enough for you when you were hungry even though MFP set it - they're always on the little low side.

    Karen, your BMR is approx 2070 (i estimated your age at 30, hope that's ok - you'll need to tweak it if i'm over/under)
    With excercise (again, I estimated you at little exercise just as it's the one I usually use for people so again you may need to tweak it) it's 2847

    Even eating at 2000 would give you a 850ish deficit so you can eat a lot more

    Not a problem, you don't look it at all lovely

    Your BMR is 2010 and with exercise (Still keeping you at little exercise as you do do the walking and try and keep mobile) so 2010 x 1.375 is 2763 so IMO you can still head for a good 2000 and still have an almost 750 calorie deficit every day. We don't want it to slow to a stop - we're here for you hun
