    If you could give one piece of advice

    If you could give one piece of advice whether it is to do with SW or just life, what whould it be?

    Mine is:

    Keep a food diary. I have found a SW food diary which can be printed off or filled in on line. Go to the thread planner to get hold of it.

    Mine would be to not set impossible goals and thus set yourself up for failure. Getting fat didn't happen overnight so neither will getting slim. Enjoy the journey, however long it takes and you will get there in the end.

    Dear Fatty, I really like that one. You are so right. Trouble is we always want instant results and thats just not going to happen. You are doing extremely well judging by your ticker, so your positive attitude obviously works!

    My advice - keep off thise scales as much as poss. I have gone off the rails too many times just because the scales have jumped up a lb for no obvious reason!
    Love Barb xxxxx

    May 17th 2011 - The fight back to health.:
    May to December 2011 28lbs lost.

    Weight gained between December 2011-March 2012 = 9lbs
    March 26th - Back with a vengeance!

    New day for weigh-ins- Mondays.
    Start weight 15.11
    April 2nd - 1lb lost = 15.10
    April 9th - 2lbs lost = 15.8
    April 16th -1lb lost = 15.7
    April 23rd - STS = 15.7 = acceptable!

    The Return! Monday 1st July 2013 - start weight - 16.7 Ouch!

    Be honest with yourself! If you've cheated hold your hands up and then draw a line underneath it and learn from it.

    Get straight back on plan if you've had a holiday or a 'blip'.

    Don't let a lapse become a relapse!

    Lost nearly 7st when I did SW back in 2009/10. Then moved to Canada.
    Have tried and failed at many other plans. Now I want to get back to my roots and do SW again.
    I love this plan!

    Don't beat yourself up for being human. I've learnt the hard way that worrying about something you cannot change doesn't help. What does help is to acknowledge the problem, face it and fix it. xxx

    Try to break the daily weighing habit - it is worth it just to see a loss on WI day when you least expect it.

    Keep a food diary, and carefully plan out each day's menu - I have found mine to be invaluable.

    Take each day as it comes, each day is a day nearer to a slimmer you.

    Keep posting on the forum, it keep's me focused and I have made so many lovely friends too.

    Life is too short to worry about the little things, take each day one day at a time. Work is an end to a means. In 30 years time you will look back and wonder where your childrens' lives have gone, where your life has gone.

    Live it now!!!! Live life.....

    If you're being tempted by naughty things like chocolate, biscuits, cakes etc, focus your mind on all the great foods that you are allowed to have in unlimited quantities that will fill you up just as much and leave you feeling much better.

    For example, if I'm out at a buffet lunch and there are all sorts of naughty goodies there to tempt me, I just remind myself of the lovely, satisfying slimming world meal I'm having later that will fill me up. Why give in to temptation when there is so much other yummy food that I'm allowed to eat? Also, the best thing is if I really want to have something naughty, I can use my syns to have it.
