Oh ghostie we have all been there.
I would say do a for and against list of reason for losing weight. Also plan your meals fir the next few days. I know princessstevie really found a reward chart where she have herself a star fur every meal she was on plan really helped. Good luck and hugs x
We have indeed all been there, and I know how insurmountable it can seem. I too found it helpful to try and not think about the day or the week ahead, but to literally concentrate on one meal at a time. Also, it helped me to only have plan-friendly food in the house (I was living alone at the time - I know this isn't always possible if you have children or a partner).
Mini targets for 2014:
12 st. Achieved! 7/05/14
11st 7lbs Achieved! 28/05/14
11st Achieved! 9/07/14
10st 2lbs (target)
been there too. I have re-joined yesterday after lots of soul searching to loose weight.
I did a for and against list too. Make sure you are truly honest with what you write. it made me re-join. Am also trying to drink more water and am having a drink first if am hungry. Also going to try and plan my meals in advance.
Good luck. we are all here to support you on your weight loss journey.

You need to attach some emotional anchors to being fit and healthy, and negative ones to staying overweight.
Just sit for 5 minutes and think of how terrible you feel because of being overweight. Then, spend 5 minutes thinking of everything positive you will feel when you have reached your goal.
Trust me, visualization techniques and attaching anchors to feelings will help massively.

Thank you all for your advice I really appreciate it.. I've got to stop coming up with excuses and feeling sorry for myself.. I'm glad I've got your guys on here that actually understand how I feel.. My partner tries to help.. But he's 13 stone 6'3 and eats what the hell he likes and it doesn't effect him one bit so it just annoys me when he gives me advice as he's never had to diet a day in his life and probably never will lol...

Its a snowball effect. Start with one day on plan, just one meticulous day. Then another, and another....once the weight starts to come off it gives you all the incentive you need. A year ago my stats were similar to yours. To within a lb. A year seems a long time looking forward and a blink of the eye looking back. I fell off the wagon, more than once, but the overall trend was still there. You can do it. I set mini goals the whole way through, not always weight related either. Work to half a stone increments or pick some occasions and choose an attainable goal for then. X
One day at a time....dont set big goals that seem too hard...and dont dwell on bad days...take every day as a new start

Ghostie, the extra-easy plan is more family friendly so you can make meals you and your other half will like and not feel like it is a "healthy eating plan" per-se.
Have you tried looking at meals on Mininins and the SW website? You can make things like Imitation KFC or even Doner Kebab so you can feel like you're being naughty when you actually aren't!
It may be worth seeing if you can both eat the same thing and cook only one meal, even if your partner is very tall and fairly slim, he will be a lot healthier after eating some slimming word meals rather than just eating junk all of the time plus it would be a great way for him to support you. You may even see your shopping bill decrease if he's not having separate junk-meals.
