    Thumbs up Brand New Start for 2014. On Simple Start

    Hello everyone

    This is my first post although I've been reading all your posts for some time.

    Whilst I'm new here, I'm not new to dieting. I've tried Cambridge and Lighterlife before, both very successfully while I was on the diets but soon put the weight back on.

    So I'm back at Weight Watchers because I should never have left. A few years ago I lost over 6 stone in 5 months and maintained for 2 years before putting it back on, and some!!!!!

    So today is my first day. I had a massive shock at weigh in. I've been off work since September having been in hospital for an operation and at my pre-op assessment they weighed me and I was a stone and a half lighter than I am now. How has that happened? I've been really quite poorly and most people lose weight when they're poorly!

    Anyway, onwards and upwards

    I am going to a Sensatori Hotel in Turkey at the end of August and I am determined to walk from sunbed to pool in a cossie without waiting to check no-one is looking and trying to get in the pool without letting anyone see what's under my sarong!

    I'm feeling very positive today. My older sister also started yesterday so that's nice.

    Wish me luck

    Thanks very much

    Three stone would be great but four would be better.

    I'm very tall and 'well made' and even though I weigh a ton I am size 22 on the bottom and size 20 on top so getting down to an 18 for my hols would be fab

    Home from week 1 weigh in. Lost 9lb. It was a very nice boost, although I've not found the week too bad

    Thought I'd update. If only to keep myself going.
    Lost 3lbs in week 2
    Lost 4lbs in week 3

    Just returned home from class and lost a whopping 6lbs this week.

    I'm amazed really. I did Lighterlife a few years ago and didn't lose 1 stone 8lbs in 4 weeks. I know it will slow down but it has been a brilliant boost. And it doesn't cost me the 66 a week I was paying Lighterlife either!

    Have to say though? How have I got to my age without realising how many calories are in potatoes? No wonder I have so much weight to lose!!!

    Thankyou and hello x

    I only did SS for the first week because I realised I knew nothing!

    If anyone had asked me before Christmas what I knew about dieting, I would have said I knew all there is to know. But like I said above, in reality, I didn't even know how many calories are in potatoes. It has been a real shock. I've been eating platefuls of them in stews etc. for years. Treating them like veg! How much more have I been getting wrong?

    So my mum bought me a little scale and I am weighing everything.

    People are stopping me at work now and commenting that they can tell I've lost weight although I have a long way to go. However in one of my first posts I said I would have been happy with 3 stone before my hols and as I have lost more than half that in 4 weeks and have 6 months to go, I think I'm going to try for 5.

    My boss told me recently that I am always setting unrealistic targets for myself which are impossible to achieve so I hope this isn't another one!

    Am off to buy one of those ceramic frying pans that you don't need fat to fry. x

    You sound like you are very motivated and never let anyone tell you your goals are unrealistic, your goals are very realistic and re something to aim to. As you said earlier you previously lost a lot of weight on WW so you know that you can do it, keep going. I've been looking at those pans on the internet so it will be great to get a review of them let me know what you think of them, apparently the big test is if you can fry an egg in them without anything. I had my first WI yesterday ( i started on Monday but want to wi on a Saturday ) I lost 2 lb which I'm really pleased with. X

    I definitely will, when I use it. Would be lovely to have a fat free fried egg eh?

    Well done Amberley. I'm hoping for a 2lb loss this week but feel like I've put on if anything. Get weighed tomorrow night so not long to wait.

    I go to my parents' for Sunday lunch every week and it would be unthinkable for me not to go as they'd be upset. I tried to explain to my mum that she really should stop using lard to make her roast potatoes, although they are lovely, but she wasn't having any of it. So not much tea for me tonight. xx

    Just back from class and lost another 4lbs. Only 2lbs more until I reach 2 stone. Am going to aim for that next week. Never imagined I would be able to lose 2 stone in 6 weeks so am going all out for that.

    Was really hungry after class so had a Weight Watchers cheese and onion quiche and I have to say it was really lovely. And satisfying. I'll be buying more of those
