    No More Monster Munching ... [Week 7: 10lbs lost]

    Hello all,

    I've been a member here quite some years. I started several weightloss journey threads several years ago, including one which was to lose weight for my wedding, which I was determined to do, but never did, at least not properly, and I'm pretty ashamed of myself when I think about it. I lost about 1.5 stones but then put it all back on in the subsequent weeks/months.

    However, lots has obviously happened since then (almost 4 years ago), the most amazing thing was, at christmas time, becoming a father for the first time. This, like never before, has crystalised things in my mind and I want and need to lose weight to be the best dad I can be, which obviously means being a healthy, slim dad who is around for as long as possible.

    So, almost 3 years to the day since I last posted on here, I'm back and want to make this the start of the new healthy me. I'm currently 19.5 stone ish but will post accurate stats on Tuesday which is weigh in day. I want to be at 14 stone as think that is a healthy weight for me. I am going on holiday at the back end of August to Spain, so I have a real target to aim for. I would love to be 16st something by then which I think is achievable as it's 4 months or so away.

    A healthy and slim version of me should be very achievable, I'm a pretty active person - I completed the London Marathon last weekend (albeit slowly - in 5hrs 38 mins) - and enjoy walking, cycling and other outdoorsy type pursuits. So my issue is obvioulsy with what I eat...

    I have been trying Weight Watchers for years, and whilst I do like it, for whatever reason, it obviously wasn't working for me. So this time around, I'm going to be doing Slimming World. I have bought the books from eBay and they look really interesting. I'm really keen to start it as several friends have had super results with it. I will be doing it 'at home' as I'm not sure I fancy the groups, so I will no doubt be around the forums for advice etc.

    I shall be keeping this thread updated with my progress and I will post up a starting stats below on weigh-in day - which is Tuesday.

    Thanks for reading!

    Update - Start 19st 8lbs
    Week 1 - 7lbs off
    Week 2 - 5lbs off
    Week 3 - 2lbs on

    Week 4 - 2lbs off
    Week 5 - STS
    Week 6 - STS
    Week 7 - 1lb on

    So, that's it, my weightloss adventure starts today ... Tuesday 22nd April.

    Jumped on the scales and I'm weighing in at a whopping 19st 8lbs.

    I have also taken some pics but don't worry, I won't be posting them as I'm stood in my underpants!

    Looking forward to giving this a proper go ...

    Thanks very much.

    The first morning has gone well enough, scrambled eggs for breakfast with a syn free mug shot for lunch. May have to supplement with a packet of crisps though. I will be well within my syns as got healthy meal planned this evening.

    Wow amazing work with the London marathon! You must be so proud of yourself!

    It doesn't sound like you're eating much today so just be careful that you don't try to deprive yourself. It will only end in eating something you shouldn't and no one wants that

    Good luck on your journey. Sounds like you have real determination so I'm sure you'll do it

    Thanks Pippa, yeah, it was a great day, very emotional!

    I agree, I haven't eaten much today but it's been awkward as was away all weekend so not been shopping - doing that tonight!

    Thanks for your luck.

    As long as you're aware it's not much then you'll be fine. I think instinct tells us not to eat much when we start a 'diet' which in my experience leads to a curry and a bottle of red because I'm feeling so pissed off after a week of nothing! That might just be me though

    First day succesfully completed. Been shopping this evening so have stocked up on lots of nice fruit, alpen light and muller lights which are enough of a treat to keep me going!

    I actually had two muller lights tonights - even though I had two syn free ones, are they still syn free? Seems a bit odd. Everything like that used to have a points value on WW.

    Nope all free. Not all Alpen lights are a hex b now. If they are 70 calories it's fine, if it's the new improved recipe of 89 calories they have to be synned

    So, three days in and going OK so far. I've used slightly more syns than I thought I would but it's still manageable. I was severely hungry the first couple of days but haven't been so bad today. I've not been starving myself but just think my body has been getting used to eating different things. I.e. Not crap.
