    My journey to 5 stone slimmer!

    About 3 months ago, I had got to the point where i was so tired of looking in the mirror and hating what I looked like. I think that I carry weight well for how heavy I am, and I told myself for a long time that I didn't need to lose weight. Now it has escalated to here and to be where I want to be, I have to lose 5 stone.

    That seems so daunting and I really need all the support I can get. I have tried a few diets in the last 3 months but they just didn't work for me. To be honest, I'm looking for a lifestyle change rather than a diet. I need to change my relationship with food. I tend to overindulge to the extreme then punish myself and starve. It's stupid and I need something to teach me how to eat normally and be satisfied.

    So.. I have joined slimming world on Monday. So far, this has been the easiest diet I've been on and I haven't cheated at all. I have my first weigh in on Monday, which is in 3 days time. I just hope I've lost weight because I am really happy on this diet. I have been bad and weighed myself already and it's saying I've lost weight... But I don't want to jinx it haha.

    Looking to talk to people who can support eachother in this journey! I need people around me that know how hard it is to lose control of your weight and the highs and lows of losing weight!

    Hmm, will finish up on what i ate yesterday! I'm on the extra easy slimming world plan btw.

    B: alpen light bar (HE) and apple.
    L: jacket potato (no butter) and spaghetti hoops with big salad
    D: ham and cheese (HE) omelette, 2 slices of bacon and a big salad.
    S: alpen light bar (HE)
    Syns: 4 Malibu n diet coke (10 syns)

    Thinking I should set myself a small goal to focus on rather than the big number of 5 stone! I'm thinking 10 pound by Christmas Day. So that's 5 weeks. 2 pound a week should be possible, right?

    Hi dee,
    Hope your enjoying your week, I can relate to your eating pattern at the moment I'm in the scoff everything in sight mode , and so miserable for doing it but then I go to the extreme of hardly eating , tho not to sure when this will kick in at the moment , I'm definetly on a feeding frenzy,
    I lost weight doing slimming world , achieving my 7 1/2 stone award , but I'm ashamed to say a couple of stone has crept bk on and if I carry on like this the numbers will go up and up,
    I want to get bk in the right frame of mind and see the scales go down coz it's a wonderful feeling,
    I used to break my targets down in to small goals it definetly helped me ,
    Anyway I'm rambling ,

    Hi von,
    I was doing really well this week, no cheating at all but then the wine was calling my name last night i didn't eat very much yesterday, maybe 1000 calories? But really that's not how I should be doing it so that's why I just need to get back on the wagon today and just enjoy that I had wine last night and today I'm gonna be good.

    Wow that's amazing!!! 7 and a half stone!! How long did it take you? I'm hoping for about a year to a year and a half for 5 but I don't know if that's realistic! Did you go to meetings and do you still go? How long has it been since you stopped the diet?

    We all go through stages of eating what we like! I understand that weight may go back on but maybe you could just think that if you restart slimming world now (or any other diet) you've got a lot less to lose and it will take you a lot less time. It won't be as big of a challenge as when you first started out!

    Just woke up with a little bit of a hangover... Hardly ate anything yesterday but had some wine. I really don't want to be disappointed with myself so just gonna keep going on this diet.

    I'm thinking that a SW full English will sort me out. Ham and cheese omelette, bacon, fried (with one cal spray!) potatoes, spaghetti hoops and a sausage! Ill have fruit after for my 1/3 super free. I don't like cooked tomatoes or mushrooms. Yummmmm.

    I'm becoming a serial weigher which I hate but I can't help it. Aaaaaahhhh. I just get worried the diet won't work! But this morning I weighed and to be fair, I don't have any food in me whatsoever because the last time I ate was yesterday at 1pm but the scales have gone down to a number I haven't ever seen yet since trying to diet for 3 months! So wow!

    Oh, that's something I wanted to say. My weight at my weigh ins at SW are gonna really annoy me cause I normally weigh first thing in the morning with no clothes on, whereas SW weigh in is after I've eaten all day and with my work clothes on! When they took my original weight I was 4 pounds heavier than I was at home that morning! So firstly, it's annoying because it feels like I'm heavier than I am and I've got longer to go to my target and second, if I do weigh at home to see how the weeks going, I will always be a different weight than at SW so ill have no idea where I am. Argh! What's everyone's thoughts on this??

    Hi dee,
    Hope the sw brekkie does the trick,
    It took me bout 17 month to lose the weight but I didn't get to the target I wanted to be , still had bout 2 stone to go , but was finding it harder to get to meeting wiv work so stopped going ooh it's coming up for a year now , but as I said maybe it was a bad move coz it fluctuated over the year and still bout a stone heavier than wen I stopped going to class ,
    Hope you have a good day

    I knew I would suffer over the weekend with sticking to plan I really need to get this weekend out of my head now and move forward but I just keep feeling so guilty and thinking about how much I could have lost if I had stuck to plan over the weekend....

    I'm also extremely exhausted today! For the past 5 nights I've been having really intense, long and horrible dreams. I've tried so much to get it to stop but no luck at the moment. It makes me wake up absolutely exhausted and like I haven't slept at all! Urgh.

    Need some positive energy!

    So yesterday was good too. I do find this diet super easy if I'm just having a normal day, but I struggle when I'm going out for dinner or going to a party. The weekends are hard too. Not so much food wise, but because I'm always doing something where I'm drinking alcohol!

    Everyone seems to be talking about Christmas and how to cope with it, but I'm not even ready to think about that yet! I've still got a all you can eat restaurant this Thursday for a 50th bday and then going butlins Friday to Monday. Bit scared!

    First weigh in tomorrow! I'm kinda excited about it!

    I know what you mean about the weekends, they can be hellish, especially when there's an occasion. I'm sure the SW program will help you manage eating out and enjoying to odd drink or two!

    Good luck with your weigh in - I hope all your hard work pays off!
