Oh deary deary me! I am rubbish at dieting, I have absolutely no willpower! Will never be slim, and even if I could be slim, i'll never be able to maintain it!!!
I've been doing slimming world now for 7 weeks and only lost 11.5lbs. I should have lost double that, surely! My last weigh in was the 28th December, not getting weighed again until Monday (usually always get weighed on Mondays but obviously with it being NY things got a bit messed up so we didn't weigh in on NYeve)
This week I have eaten ok- most of the time, but then drank quite a lot NYeve then had a takeaway NYday.. And today, I am so tired and lazy, had fish and chips out the freezer and had pancakes with lemon and sugar because i fancied them and feel sorry for myself. This is no good! I need a right royal kick in the bum! Please someone kick me up the bum! :( I will never be slim!
One bad day - draw a line under it and straight back on tomorrow.
Slimming is not easy and anyone who tells you it is has never had a weight problem.
Visualise yourself at your target weight - how do you feel? What can you do now that you couldn't do before?
Everything worth having takes work unfortunatly.
My mother said something to me the other day which struck a chord - being big is hard and dieting is hard, you just need to choose your hard.
Good luck - you can do it!!

Wow MrsWilsoncroft - I've never thought of weightloss like that before!
:) thanks guys. I have lost the equivilant of an average house cat! I think I'll keep that list, MrsWilsoncroft! I like what your mum said flabtofit, very good way of putting it! I hope that when it gets to weigh in on Monday, i'll get my motivation back!!!
Keep smiling hun! Let us know how you get in x
Sometimes I don't think we appreciate the lbs we lose but when you think about the weight in another form it really surprises you...
Here is a thread I just made which you may like.....
I think that's a great weightloss! You should think of what you have achieved rather than what you haven't. You're doing great, just keep going. My worry used to be the opposite - if I lost it too fast it would just go straight back on - slow and steady is the way to go for me. I know not everyone is the same though. Good luck for your next weigh in.
MrsWilsoncroft - love that list! I've lost the weight of a Chihuahua! Definitely going to keep a copy of it.
Lol - Apparently I found an average human brain over the holiday period. Not sure my OH will agree with that - he thinks it's the other way round! :D
And congratulations on the loss of your cat. I agree with the other advice. Draw a line under your bad day. It's one out of 365 this year. I think you're doing great!
Thanks guys!! Feel a little better after a pep talk! This site is great! Will let you know how I get on Monday! xxxx :)
You will be fine. Good luck!
Good luck and let us know how you get on xxx
