    Hi Lucy! I also have 4 stone to lose.. I'm sitting at about 14st right now (probably a bit over now since I ate like a pig over the last week). Really NEED to get down to 10st by summer 2012 as I am sick and tired of feeling like crap!

    Let's make a point of checking in once a week to report how we're doing and maybe we can shed these pounds together!!

    That sounds great - thank you for your support; have decided that I will weigh myself first thing on Saturday morning every week so will let you know what the scales say on Saturday which will be my official starting weight. I know how you feel - I know I would have a lot more energy if I lost some weight also my size 16 clothes are staring to feel really tight and I'm determined not to buy the next size

    Hey all, I am on a calorie counting diet from New Year and my aims for 2012 is to lose as much as I possibly can - to cut out all over eating and exercise more. I am about 14st at the moment (I think, too scared to check for sure! ) and I want to be 9st in the end.

    I know I won't lose that much in only a year but I aim to be at least 2 - 3 st lighter by this time next year, so lets see how I get on!

    I'm just calorie counting. Then getting on my exercise bike and turning it to calories burnt setting and will not get off the thing until it hits 4,000!

    It may kill me but I am sick of being the size I am!

    Hi Everyone,

    Yeah I`m just calorie counting aswell; I`m gonna start eating 2000 calories per day and reduce slowly as I loss weight. Mon - Fri I`m gonna walk to and from the station and work which is 3 miles each way and on the weekend gonna either do my Davina dvd which is currently collecting dust in my cupboard or spend half hour on the Wii. Also gonna try and avoid eating out as I always stuggle to keep on track when I go to social occasions - anyone got any tips?

    I`m hoping to loss 2lb a week and will be 9st 6lb at some stage this year if it kills me

    Course you can join us Momma B everyones welcome! Will you weigh yourself on sat also?

    Hi girls

    I also have about 4 stone more to lose. I have lost 5st 2lbs this year, I currently weigh 14st 7lbs. I initially set my target weight at 12st7lbs, so only 2st more to go but think I definitely wanna get down to 10st in the long term.

    I haven't weighed myself since last Thursday, and I'm not planning on weighing in again until the end of January as I don't really want to know if I've gained any weight over Xmas! Although I have been really good and haven't gorged myself.

    I go to the gym twice a week, and my DH bought me Your Shape: Fitness Evolved 2012 for the Xbox for Xmas and its wicked, really gets you sweating.

    We're going on holiday in August so fingers crossed I'll have a hot bod by then haha!

    So when you are just calorie counting do you have any rules? I.e. no food with more than x% of fat?? Or does anything go as long as your sticking to your daily allowance? Do you all use computers or apps to count? I have myfitnesspal on my iPhone and think its great but I never know where to set my calories to. I need to lose about 35lbs ideally!!! My target date is my birthday in July. It works out its 30 weeks away so I'm gonna aim for an average of 1lb a week loss with the odd good week where I might get 2lbs off.
    My serious problem at the moment is I'm currently not able to do any exercise after a recent operation on my feet. I have metal pins in my toes and they aren't coming out until mid Jan and I have an awful feeling doc is gonna say no exercise for 6-8 weeks! :-(
    I don't know how many cals to set myself with the fact I can't do any exercise. I was thinking 1200 but not sure if that's too low?? I have an under active thyroid as well so my metabolism is slow anyway. Just don't want to send my body into starvation mode!!

    Sorry for the essay! Lol!

    Wow thats amazing trixie you must be very proud of yourself good luck for next year aswell - the holiday is a nice incentive

    Tiaratara - I think I read somewhere that when you are dieting as a guide you should be eating between 1200 and 1500 calories I wouldnt eat any less. I`m gonna start out eating 2000 cos thats alot less than I`m eating at the moment I haven`t got any rules as such but want a balanced diet of three meals a day with healthy choices like fruit, veg, water, fish etc I have a sweet tooth aswell so gonna try and ween myself off but always suffer from migraines when I try and do this so gonna take it slow I have an iphone so will try some of the apps thanks for the tip. Hope you feel better soon

    Swimming is a good idea but just not sure if I could wear a swimming cossie just yet! Poor people in the pool would die! Lol!
    I will speak to the dr when I go back and get some ideas of what I can do with my feet exercise wise!

    If you have iPhones I really recommend u get the 'myfinesspal' app! It's fantastic! U can add anything to it and it will work everything out for you! U can even scan the barcode of food products that your eating and it will automatically choose that item and put it in your diary!

    I think I'm gonna do a kickstart of 1200 calories for 2 weeks and then increase up to 1400 depending on the results.

    Well do we all have target weight losses and dates? Do you fancy setting up a thread where we can all add our weigh ins and support each other through that?

    I'm not starting till Tuesday 3rd January cos that works well with my life and have. New years eve party to attend! My hangovers are awful so Monday will be defo bad food to get me through it!!

    Hope your all ok anyways!
    Speak soon xxx

    Oh and yes I'm interested about the 4000 calorie burn! Before my op I was doing an hour of intense spinning and could only burn around 500 cals! I couldn't do 8hrs of that! Pure hell! Lol!!

    How do u measure your calories burnt? Do u use the machines in the gym or do u have a heart rate monitor?

    I have a heart rate monitor and I absolutely love it! I think they are so motivational so if u can afford one I really would recommend them! When I'm exercising I look at my heart rate and if it isn't within my 'zone' I make sure I push myself to get in that some and stay there as long as possible!!

    I eat no more than around 1200 a day now, 3 meals, no snacks. Although when I was pregnant I did aim for about 1800. I'd recommend that, because its tough going from eating lost and lots of calories to such a low amount!

    I aim for each meal to be around 300-400 calories.

    Tiaratara, sorry to hear about your feet. I don't know about your area, but here people can self-refer to NHS physiotherapy so that might be something for you to look into. If you can't self refer, I'm sure your GP would refer you. You'll still lose weight despite not being able to exercise, I didn't exercise at all whilst pregnant and I still lost a lot of weight xxx
