Well done on that loss Sammie - a fantastic weight loss for week one. Great getting a sticker eh?
I am very much a yo-yo dieter and have been for years. I keep going to class whether weight is up or down. It does help me get motivated but don`t always last. It`s me not the class. They are all lovely people.
Will pop in sometimes and see how you doing.
I usually weigh on a Friday, Sometimes Thursday sometimes Saturday. Depends where I am and how much I have lost or put on.
I have been doing SW for a very long time. There is nothing wrong with the plan I must say but I am not good at sticking to it, I really lost most of the weight I have lost on red and green, but find them harder to do now since extra easy.
I am a foodaholic as are most of my family. One of my brothers has just joined Overeaters Anonymous. Don`t know yet if it helps him at all, they don`t talk about diets apparently but the problems people have with food. He has been to 2 sessions and bought lots of information about the classes. Never does anything by halves my brother. I have thought about going to one, ut not sure yet. I know I am not the only person like myself who has something in the head which tells you to go and get some food. Sometimes it wins, sometimes I do.
(hope that makes sense.)
My doctor said to me that I need to understand it is an illness to want to eat most of the time, esoecially when not hungry. He may be right who knows.
Try and stick to it if you can otherwise you could be `dieting` for years. I think we have to change the eating habits we have developed and eat more healthily.
Do your best Sammie and I am sure you will find your man. Great about the apartment in Spain. What a thing to give you a push eh?
If you want to take a look at my food diary this is how you find me.
Go to the top of the page - on the blue line on the LHS it says Most Popular Diets. Click on that and then choose Slimming World. It will fetch up another page, choose the thread that says FOOD DIARIES as appopsed to weight loss diaries. My diary is called My Daily diary no matter what it is.
It may help, maybe not,
Hello Sammie! Welcome! I am rather new here too) Only few weeks. You have such a great result already! My congrats.Great job!! Keep going;-) Wish you good luck! Will be glad to talk any time! Let's make friends and support each other;-)
Well i have been hungry all day today for some reason although still been completely 100% slimming world good... Having a think on what to eat later i have a choice..... What ever cooks the fastest i guess it will be fillet steak and stirfry....
I know what you mean Doreen, I love food but i love anything bad for me, why i am so big, but no more, i am unhappy about it my mind flicked like a switch very strange i guess i had enough of buying tents! I want people to look at me and say "wow you look fantastic" Id love to be on the otherside... I will check your food Diary tomorrow as i have no internet at home - BT havent connected me yet i moved into a new build and been waiting 7months!!!!!!! As i am leaving work in 30 minutes thank god!!! With the boyfriend thing, i bloody hope so i am so lonely and fed up maybe i am meant to be on my own The apartment thing is lovely. Fingers crossed now they buy it!!!
Hi Ginger, Thank you, its not actually as hard as i thought it would be just some huge changes and bang! I am hoping for a 2lb Loss on monday to give me a new number so fingers crossed... How long have you been on slimming world? Have you got much to lose? My target is 11stone 10lbs but i think id like to be in the 10s... See how i go i guess... I just cant wait to get there but i have come to terms with its going to take time, its not a "quick fix" as most diets i do are for a quick fix but they never last sadly as you revert back to your old ways... Well i did mind you i havent been below 15stone 5lbs since i was like 14 ish so to get below that number will be lovely as it means i have finally pushed through my "stop" barrier as when i diet for some reason i lose my willpower at around that amount and pile it all back on... I hope this is for life now.. Anyway sorry to go on, Im going to get ready to leave work thank god!!! Sun has gone in now typical!!!
Have a lovely evening both xxx
