    Trim's journey from 30st down to ...

    Hello and Happy New Year Everyone!!

    I wish I could say I'm new on here but I wrote a similar thread back in 2012 and unfortunately I've regained the bit of weight I lost since then and I've not been on here in ages and ages!
    I used to love coming on here and found it incredibly inspiring to chat to such lovely, motivating people! I really hope to make friends and chat with people like that again this time, in the hope we can support each other :-)

    I know it's probably a massive cliche jumping on the 'new year/ new you' band wagon. But I honestly feel motivated to make this year count! I don't want the numbers on the scales to keep creeping up and up each year! I'm starting to get scared about the way my weight is going! I can't get my head around the horrendous fact that I'm very nearly 30st! I'm shocked and disgusted with myself for getting to this! Something needs to be done! I can't keep going like this!

    My plan is to combine what I've learned from various diets/advice I've done and followed before. Such as, always eating a healthy breakfast (as I never normally have breakfast), eating smaller portions, keeping under 1800 cals per day, planning all my meals, shopping online to avoid temptation, daily exercise & drinking plenty of water!

    I so hope this time around it works & I stick to it! I feel like I have no life at the moment. I'm just stuck in a rut and trying to eat my way out is certainly not working! It just makes me feel worse! Please God let this time work!!!!

    I look forward to reading other peoples posts and to recording my hopefully successful journey on here!

    Here's to 2015 and here's to us achieving and succeeding!! ????

    This time next year you will wish you had started today!

    Hi trim - welcome back!!

    As you've been here before I'm sure you know about the WEMITTS section which is for people with quite a bit to lose. They are very supportive and there's some inspirational stories there, Tracey lost 11stone and is really smart and kind when it comes to advice.

    But you'll get loads of support here too - the girls are amazing and I have some great buddies on this board and some people dip in and out if the two.

    I'm looking forward to seeing you lose the weight and supporting you along the way xx

    October Weight loss - (STS - I reckon, time delay from Asia holiday (as in the weight didn't show up the day I landed, but the week after. A 5 day trip to NY. And undeniable overeating on the weekend which I'm now getting under control).
    November Weight loss - (3 Pounds) and into the 8s - BOOM!!!!
    December Weight gain - (14.5 Pounds) oh dear!! Includes last 2 weeks of Nov too. Well actually 4lbs was from different scales, and is using a monday weigh in at my heaviest. But I'd rather just log it as it is. That's what happens when you go out 27days out of 31 :-(

    Welcome back, hon. As Blondcat says (thanks for the kind mention, BC!), the WEMITTS section is a fab place for those with a fair bit to lose - it's an active part of the forum with a lovely bunch of supportive folks.

    In terms of your calorie goal, 1,800 is a bit low for your stats. I'd recommend working out your BMR and setting that as your target for starters. That's from my personal experience and that of a lot of other people I've followed on here.

    Happy new year and good luck! xx

    Hi everyone! Thanks so much for the kind welcome! I had forgotten about the wemitts but ill defo be checking out the posts! Thanks blondcat! I actually feel better and more motivated already just being back on here! Thank you for that!!! Thanks for your advice Tracey! I've had a quick look on google and my fitness pal and they are saying between 2200 & 2500 cals a day. I will certainly follow your advice and increase my starting allowance of cals! You have done so well! Congratulations on your weight loss! Well today I've started as I mean to go on and I had breakfast (well brunch given that I was a lazy so & so and didn't get up till mid morning lol). I had porridge with honey and a handful of grapes. Very nice it was to! How are you all doing? X

    By changing nothing, nothing changes!

    This time next year you will wish you had started today!

    Just a quick question. I've just reset all my stats on mfp and now it's saying daily cals of 2800. That seems a lot? I just wondered what you thought? Is that too much or am I way out with my calculations? thanks

    It's difficult to say, really, until you try it. I know that's a useless answer, lol, but it really is trial and error. I started on 2,000, but I was "only" 21.5 stone, so I'd expect yours to be a bit higher, maybe in the range of 2,200-2,500. Did you tell MFP you were going to exercise, is that maybe why it gave a higher figure? xx

    Not silly! Tracy definitely right, if you are too aggressive cutting your calories your body is going to be like "what the heck?? Where's the pizza?" Im like that when I do too many low cal days in a week.

    I'd tell MFP that I'm not exercising and get your BMR calculated based on that. Then you won't beat yourself up if you don't do any and will be a bonus in terms of weight loss.

    Hershey how you getting on? Hope you were better than me over christmas and new year! I've been so naughty :-(

    Very wise words!! Lol my body would defo be asking 'where's the pizza' before too long! I've just completed my mfp diary and I had 2089cals today and I'm full! Great to know I had over 300csls left to play with (and that's before exercise)

    How you getting on? How much are you wanting to lose Hun? x
