Six Stones to loose, will NOT fail.
Started SW on the 15th Feb at 16 stone 4
lb loss first week, a little disappointed but then Husband did take me out for a meal and also just getting head around what I can eat and getting the shopping in.
Bad headaches all week, screaming kids at WI so could not stay for group.
Tried making soups with some success.
So, 16 stone 3 and I am going to stick at it this time, starting new job on the 1st March and I am terrified, have been a stay at home and hide away housewife since being made redundant two years ago and that combined with a back operation, and moving to a new town has made my weight Balloon, have never been slim but never this big.
Goal is to be thinner and fitter to enjoy my music festivals more this year, and of course some new clothes
Exercise, started going for a walk every evening after tea with Husband and also started swimming but not sure if I will fit the swimming in after starting full time work, looking into buying a Wii Fit with my first wage packet, or asking Mr Hat (Husband) to get me one!
Starting this diary to hopefully keep me on track.

I too had 6 stone to lose when I started SW 6 weeks ago. Like you I lost 1 lb in my first week and was disappointed. Keep going though because in 6 weeks I've now lost 10lbs - including a maintain week and a gain week due to drinking too much. The headaches will go away soon - I promise! It's just your body getting used to natural sugars and foods instead of processed ones. You'll feel great in a few weeks x

Hi rootsfran and others here,
I also had 6 stone to lose (and a bit more !) when I started this just over 6 months ago. And now suddenly it's nowhere near that and I feel great. Stick with it and try not to be too impatient (easy for me to say but I've been there) and think of this as a new way of life not a diet. Hopefully in 6 months my post will be your post to a newbie here :-)
Good luck to all of you.
August '10 -May '11 - 75.5 lbs

August '11 - 4.5 lbs

I have about 5 to lose seems so much but going for one stone at a time,
together we will do it, good luck with next WI
been very naughty today and weighed myself on boots scales, pleased with what they say but from experience they are different to SW scales, still fingers crossed on the right track. Struggled yesterday as a friend bought be some chicken and ham pie (pork pie pastry sort that you eat cold) my fave food in the whole world, luckily the butcher she got it from is miles away and you cannot get it round here!
Making a big pan of watercress soup now, starting new job tomorrow and terrified, new job provides free fruit and drinks and a free healthy lunch option, if you want un-healthy you pay, don't know what the food will be like though till I get there, at least I don't have to take a pack up!
Good luck with the new job hun and well done with finding a company who take healthy eating seriously. My place do free fruit, but its delivered on a monday and usually gone by Wednesday - still better than nothing.
if it m,akes you feel any better, I had a massive off the wagon moment on Saturday - fell foul of the out too long in town scenario and ended up eating 2 slices of pizza in pizza hit - 40 syns in total when i checked later(somehow managed to order the most synful pizza on the menu). Then last minute going away party for OH nephew meant no dinner on saturday night and there was a buffet full of pastry, bread and deep fried food - not a carrot stick in sight. Not hopeful for weigh in tomorrow now but if I do gain I will definately know why.
Good luck Kingleds, with it being not a diet but a change of eating habits I am sure you will get back on it easy and even if you have a gain don't give up.
i definately won't!! I paid for a 12 week countdown course up front to make sure I stuck to it and still have 5 weeks left plus I feel SO much healthier and fitter already.
Well the job was horrible and I gained 2 and a half pounds due to anxiety and stress, it is finished now so back to being a house wife and have already ditched the gain so am back on the wagon and 15 stone 13 pounds, determined to loose more than two pounds this week and get my half stone award.
Need to learn to love fruit! and get some excersise.
Discovered ryvita thins, multi seed ones are 2 syns each and delicious, satisfy my savoury nibble cravings .
Back on plan 100% now, and yesterday I joined a local walking group, only one a week and beginners level but I was somewhere in the middle throughout the walk so something to aim for to keep pace with those up front.
Need to find another form off exercise or activity now though as once a week is only a start.
Really Really likes to post!
