    Getting my mojo back!

    Started lurking in the past few days as I know I have a lot to lose again. Did so brilliantly for ages then it all went to pot. Then kind of gave up and have been all over the place. Haven't weighed myself yet but I feel horrible - all wobbly arms and thighs and tummy. I've planned to go back on sns to get back to goal again - but am totally dithering about when to start as the house is full of yummy things and new year will shortly be upon us! Feel a bit rubbish really

    Hi. I know how you feel, but I decided to bite the bullet and restarted yesterday. The food will always be there in one form or another, I just decided I don't want to be wearing it anymore. However, this diet is as much in the mind as it is physically, so you have to have your head in the right place to start and that may be in the new year. Whatever you decide we are all here to offer support.

    Me too, been promising myself for weeks will get on the diet I am starting today, have put on 9lb in the time I have been waiting for the right day, have just got a new order, I am going out to dinner on 30th and I am going to try and just have meat and veg but we will see . If I dont start today It will be more to lose.

    Bit of a rant this sorry.

    I know how you feel. My OH thought I was mad starting now and said I should wait till after New Year, but I could have gained another 7lb in that time. There will always be events and challenges along the way, I suppose it comes down to what I want the most. A healthier body or a quick fix of food. Lets hope I still feel that I want the healthier body further down the line.

    Thanks for the replies! It helps to know I'm not alone. Just feel like a big blimpy failure at the moment. I thought I'd learned stuff on LL but it seems the old behaviours are still there. Ugh. Was going to start today but am dithering because I have a few days of holiday left.

    I find it difficult cooking for the family to be honest and sometimes get really fed up at holiday times because it's a holiday for everyone else except me. I need to work on this martyr thing I've got going on. It's not helpful!

    Hi Spangly, my lovely twin!!

    I know exactly where you are coming from! Weighed myself today, wished I hadnt. I'd had breakfast, water and 2 coffees, fully clothed with jeans on and I'm 40lbs over my target weight. Even allowing 5lbs for the clothes and time of day etc, still 2 and a half stones over. Eurgh. How did I let this happen??

    Nothing fits me...luckily I found some clothes in the attic when we got the Christmas decs down. Otherwise I'd be wearing jammies all day.

    I really dont kow what to do. We go to Lanzarote 2 weeks today and you know how we love to celebrate New Year up here. I've got about a weeks worth of packs. Not sure whether to start them on Wednesday or do Scottish Slimmers and then onto the packs when we get back from holiday?

    Decisions, decisions...














    Goals

    1 Lose 7lbs
    2 Lose 14lbs
    3 Lose 21lbs
    4 Lose 28lbs
    5 BMI under 30
    6 Lose 35lbs
    7 Lose 42lbs
    8 Lose 49lbs
    9 Lose 56lbs
    10 Lose 59lbs

    Hi daisy! And Debbi! So sorry to hear you're in the same predicament, Debbi, - but also a bit comforted to know it's not just me that's lost their way a bit, (and lovely to see a familiar face too). I haven't weighed yet... Drum roll.., but will be facing the music on Wednesday, when I go back to work and my holidays are officially over.

    I know I've got lots of 'issues' (sigh) but it's also that bread and biscuits and chocolate and cheese (not necessarily all at the same time) just taste so darned good. Oh and wine.

    I want to prevent this happening again but have felt quite helpless and a bit lost this year. My LLC said some of it might be because the 'strokes' from other people stop once your goal weight becomes normality for you. (I haven't seen her in a couple of months and am embarrassed to go back - though I will do - because I've stacked all of this on in about eight weeks!! :-o)

    I reckon it will be about 40lb for me too by the way, from the way my body looks and feels right now.

    Just discovered there's a new Zumba class started a few doors down my road. I've never been to one but people say it's great fun. I'm going to try it out on Wednesday

    Oh spangly sorry to hear you've had a rough time with food and you were doing so well.

    You done it once you CAN and WILL do it again.

    Don't be embarrassed to see your LLC she will understand.

    Good luck you can do it.
    If you want it enough you won't keep finding excuses to not do it.

    What fits your schedule better -- Exercising 1 hour a day or being f** 24 hours a day?”

    "I don’t think there’s any excuse for women not to stay in shape. We just need to stop gorging, put on our trainers, and use some self-control. No one else is going to do it for us." Linda Barker

    “Eating crappy food isn't a reward -- it's a punishment.” ― Drew Carey

    Paleo since Apr 2012 9st 9lbs got to 8st 7lbs October 2012 and with focus,exercise and motivation have stayed below 9st since.
    Hard work and dedication pays off.No time for excuses if you really want to loss the weight.
    I can now enjoy special occasions without having to worry about what the scales will say after.
    Loving life,Loving my body.

    Zumba is supposed to be good fun, although I've never been. I think my leisure centre do it on a Friday night. I went to BodyCombat today for the first time in weeks. It was horrible, could just feel all my fat jiggling about. Yuck. I need to schedule my fitness classes now. While I'm on holiday, I'm going to do the Couch to 5km plan. I need to train the dog to run with me, that could be tricky lol. Of course, Wednesday is a public holiday for us, so no classes (or work )

    Need to menu plan for the rest of the week and miss out tomorrow and New Years Day

    That's the thing I'm hating most at the moment too: the jiggling flesh. Ugh. Arms and thighs and stomach. I'm trying to focus on the positives: it's there because I allowed myself to have a great time and I also know that if I focus it will be gone well before Easter, but it's not nice.

    Been spending some time this week sorting out the clutter in our house. Feels much better already, although there is more to do!
