    Thumbs up Claire Bear's shrinking mission

    Hi everyone.

    Im Claire, and today I stepped on the scales for the first time in many years and saw a big 27st staring back at me. That hurts. but I want to channel the emotion into getting a good start in the diet.

    i am all stocked up with slim fast, and today was the first day of my diet.

    choc shake for breakfast, meal bar for lunch with banana and apple as a snack. I have had Cornish pasty for dinner. I'm not going to be too strict on the evening meals just yet, as I need something to look forward to!

    in terms of timelines, I'd really like to be at 20 by 21st March 2015, in time for my holiday for Mexico. To be track for that,mill need yo I have lost 4 stone by Xmas. A tall order but when I'm THIS MUCH overweight, I'm hoping if will be easier to shift in these early days.

    so wish me luck on My journey! I'm going to post daily on here, and would welcome and support or positivity along the way.
    xx Claire Bear xx

    Welcome aboard Claire, just take it one day at a time is the best advice and don't get too hung up on what the scales say. 4 stone before your holiday is definitely acheivable.

    Wow, thanks so much for the welcome!! You are all so kind.

    Day 2, strawberry shake for breakfast, Spent all day sitting on an interview panel, and actually felt more hungrythan yesterday. Probably less to distract me, and think I probably wasn't drinking enough water. again had an apple and banana as snacks, and didn't get to my meal bar until about 4pm.

    had a slimfast choc bar snack on the bus on the way home. They are sooooo good.
    in fact, I'm finding the meal bars really sweet too, which appeals to my sweet tooth, but I wonder in the long term if it's a good idea or not in terms of trying to re-educate myself on healthy eating. having lasagne for dinner

    I've got an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon tomorrow, A couple of weeks ago I finally plucked up the courage to go to my GP about my painful knees, as she has referred me on. Feel much more confident about telling him I have started a diet and my plans to stick with it. still dreading that look on his face when I walk in though...

    There are a few other people at work dieting too, although none of them have anywhere near as much to lose as I have. one of my work friends kept on telling anyone about her dream in which she weighs herself and she's 13 stone. She kept on telling me the story, and waiting for my reaction, and I swear I honestly couldn't work out whether this was a good or a bad dream!! I THINK after a lot of pondering on this, that she was trying to say it was. BAD dream... But how ironic, that 13 stone would be my absolute DREAM

    Hello and welcome, Claire! I have dodgy knees too, so I can sympathise - I've had two ops so far, but am hoping to finally get a replacement soon. Losing weight will definitely help with the knees - every pound you lose apparently equates to four pounds less strain going through your knees when you stand or sit, so even a little can make a big difference. Good luck! xx

    Thanks, That's good to know.

    i finally just hot stuck in a situation where I was trying to increase my exercise (just starting with more walking really) and every time I did I would pull or tweak something in my knee and end up hobbling around and having to rest up for a few days. GP was actually really good about it, I openly declared "clearly my weight is a big factor here" and she nodded, knowingly...

    Also so faced my fear or disapproving healthcare professionals (which is ridiculous considering I am a nurse myself!) and booked in for my cervical smear last week too (sorry if too much information!!) so really pleased that is that done hopefully for another couple of years. !!

    Hi Claire really love the positive outlook which really help when on these types of journey's. I remember when I was younger I would swipe my sisters Slimfast Shakes and drink them because they where so good. Stay strong, consistent and just never settle until you reach your goal.

    Ha I have friends who cry about getting on the scales and being 10/11/12 stone and they think they're huge.
    I would be quite happy at 12 stone!

    Keep up the good work hun, sounds like you're doing well so far.

    Thanks for the positive vibes!! Lol at stealing your sister's shakes!!!!

    and speaking of crying... Just saw the knee doctor, and basically got told that my knees are hurting because I'm just putting too much weight on them, and I need to do something because it's only going to get worse. He was actually a really nice doctor, and explained it well, and I do appreciate his honesty about the whole situation. He has recommended physio and a personal trainer. He is also going to do an MRI scan, but... Cue embarrassing situation... Wasn't sure if I would fit in the MRI scanner, so I had to go and meet a radiologist for them to 'check me out'. I cried all the way home....

    SO on the subject if positivity I'm going to look at this horrible horrible situation as the kick up the ass that I need, and every time I think of sneaking a biscuit, I am going to remember how it felt, sat there hearing about what my weight is doing to my body, with that ever so ominous lump forming in my throat.

    day 3, and another busy day starting with a choc shake, banana for lunch and now just grabbing a slimfast snack bag of pretzels and an apple. Think we've got home made curry for dinner.

    waiting for boyfriend to come home, cos I need a cuddle badly and he is always really supportive
