    Can the party girl finally slim down??

    ‘This is it! Im going to do it this time!’ Heard it before? Ive lost count of how many times ive said it, but this time something has really shifted in me. Cant pin it down to one thing but i really do want this – and for the first time ever i want this more than i want to pick up the phone and get a Dominos (my all time favourite food – i could live off the stuff!) or go out and get wasted and dance like an idiot and get a burger on the way home (which i do/did on a far too regular basis!) or sit and gorge on a box of chocolates after a bad day.

    Partly ive finally realised that its not just going to disappear without me really making a conscious effort. Ive always set big targets before and if after a week or two i hadn’t lost at least half a stone id be annoyed and hit the fridge and give up. But now ive realised that it actually is possible. I want to lose 2.5 stone by my 30th (July) and working it out, thats just over a pound a week and is actually doable as long as i stick at it. Plenty of people in the forum have done it and have really inspired me and its finally clicked that having the ‘odd day off’ or ‘forgetting’ to write down a few syns is just silly, i have to stick at this if i want it.

    Anyway! Thought id use this space for my random mumblings and (inevitable) struggles and (hopefully) successes.

    So my aims? 2.5 stone as i said which will take me down to about 12 ˝ stone. Unimaginable right now. Currently at 14.9 which is the lightest ive been in my adult life. Cant remember ever weighing less than this. Being tall with big boobs means i (apparently) carry it well and im a 16/18 depending on the shop. Decided to break my goals down into clothes as i love fashion but just cant really do it at the moment. So first stop, Topshop size 16. Then Reiss (which only go to a 14). Then a bikini. Which I have NEVER ever done but is something i can focus on eventually getting to.

    My biggest obstacle is going to be the partying. I love it! Love wine, love dancing, love getting dressed up. Dont love the calories that come with the wine and the inevitable hangover food tho! So im making a conscious decision to ease up on the partying. Managed to go to the pub 3 times so far and only drink soft drinks which has been tough but also feel really proud of myself.

    Love the gym so thats pretty handy i guess! Gives me a chance to clear my head and get some aggression out. Been going for about 7 months now but not combined it with the right eating so now hopefully SW and gym together will work.

    Anyway, im rambling now so ill stop. Feel free to say hi/comment – and thank you to all the people who have put me right already/answered my questions/inspired me everywhere else in the forum, really appreciate it all! x

    Welcome. I felt exactly the same way when I started 3 months ago - I'd said a thousand times that I wanted to lose weight but just never did enough to actually get it done - this time, something was just different in my head and 3 months later (and 18lbs lighter) I'm shockingly still in that frame of mind! My start weight was almost exactly the same as yours too

    Good luck, I hope you continue to feel motivated!

    I too used to be a party girl. I can go to the pub and not have a drink these days but it infuriates me when so-called friends push me into having one.

    Admittedly, life isn't as fun as it used to be but I can actually remember sunday happening these days!! I used to miss a lot of them. Good luck xx

    Ahh thanks everyone! I think throwing my thoughts out there might keep me a little bit more on track - and it's good to hear it's not just me!

    Yesterday was TOUGH. Saturdays always are for me. Bf and I used to get a takeaway and chill out in front of the tv which would ruin all my hard work in the week (6 days on SW and 1 day eating pizza and ice cream and god knows what and I would happily moan that it wasn't working!). But yesterday I had 14 syns (flora light and chocolate - oh how I wanted more choc!) and dinner was a huge bowl of SW risotto. Filled me up but I'm still trying to change my mindset - no I don't 'deserve' a takeaway for being good all week, it doesn't work like that love! Saying that tho, I think for each stone I might celebrate with a couple of slices - the thought of 6 months otherwise might push me over the edge!

    So that was my first really testing day and 3 weeks in that's not such a bad thing - thought it would hit me much sooner but it didn't and I managed it. So if I can do today too that will be 3 weeks - the first time I'll ever have managed that! And Sunday's are a bit easier too - I'm thinking SW 'fry up', lots of superfree nibbles and then a SW chicken burger and chips today. I look at those posts of ppl doing meal replacement plans on here - I could never manage that, I love food too much!

    Hope everyone has a great day! X

    oh don't - I'm dreading that! Quite easy at the mo as everyone seems to detox in January anyway. But will get tricky when ppl start asking as I don't really talk about SW as I'm quite private. Do you drink at all now? I'm tempted to try just having one glass but a) 1 is never just 1 and b) I'd rather use my syns on choc! X

    Ah good job! Wow! If I can stick at this 3 months and get the same kind of loss I'll be super pleased! It's always so good to hear others have done it, esp from a similar weight! X

    At the beginning of each month I sit down and look at all the ocassions planned then decide if i'll drink at them or not. At most i'll have one drinking night a week, or 2 one week and none the next kind of thing. If I decide i'm not drinking then that's it- I don't. For me, 1 turns into 11. Plus, there is always someone who will buy you a bottle instead of glass citing it's cheaper, or will get you a double instead of a single without mentioning it and your syns will be up the wall.

    But I don't like flexi synning just for ale- I really enjoy meals with a few syns in coz I think it's more appetising, so if I save up all week to drink, then I get drunk and go way off coz I feeel like i've starved myself! So more often than not, I just don't drink.

    Good luck xx

    So 3 weeks in and still going strong! Tomorrow is weigh in day which in a very bizarre way I'm looking forward to. Weird huh? I think it's because I used to weigh everyday and get obsessive whereas now I'm looking forward to seeing how I've done - aim is 0.5kg a week (I know everyone else does pounds but mentally kg is better for me). And, despite feeling positively fat for some reason, I figure I must have done well - 92 syns last week out of allotted 105, 4 hardcore gym glasses and all but one meal was at least 1/3 if not half superfree (still feeling bad about the one failed meal though!).

    We shall see tomorrow! X

    good luck for the weigh in tomorrow! Looking forward to hearing how you got on. Don't feel too bad for the one failed meal..imagine it on a see-saw against all the really healthy meals you've managed , or compare it to a week of how you were eating before and don't be too hard on yourself.

    fingers crossed for a big smile from you tomorrow !!
