    Yo yo dieter needs to stay on track!

    Hi everyone.

    I joined a little while ago for some inspiration, and wondered if there was anyone out there like me?

    I am a serial Yoyo dieter, and am either really strict and good on weightwatchers or I fall off the wagon massively and eat way too much chocolate and cake, always promising myself I will start tomorrow...

    Now I don't have a huge amount to lose. Probably about a stone to go, but I can't seem to find the motivation to stick to it. I have lost and put on this stone so many times since I was 19 (I am 30 now!).

    I am a size 12 and would like to be a comfortable 10 and stay at a constant weight rather than losing and gaining cycle. I have two children, my youngest is 2.5 so no excuse for baby weight now!

    I am going to do propoints starting today.

    I tried filling and healthy and think I eat too much as used to have crumpets as my snacks on top of meals so think I missed the point and was using it to eat more! Crumpets and Nutella are too good though!

    Would love to chat to anyone in same position and always on the look out for new meals ideas so please get in touch!

    Amba xx

    Hi thanks for the reply. I've done ww a few times before and I always find it works well when I'm being strict.

    It's just I then can't seem to maintain it once I stop tracking. So do we track forever?!

    I'm not going to class, I'm doing it online.

    How about you? Have you tried filling and healthy? I'm not sure I am good enough on portion sizes to make it work so doing propoints.

    Hi I tried to reply yesterday but it's not showing up! Thinking I don't have the right version of this app as when I try to post it takes a few hours to show, and now the one I posted yesterday isn't showing at all!

    Anyhow I meant to say thanks for reply!

    I have done ww in the past and found it works, it's just the maintaining bit that I get stuck with. I'm doing it online as my local class is at a time when I'm at work. X

    Hi

    I'm here to subscribe and hopefully join u on her journey I only joined up again online last week after trying a ridiculous amount of other diets in the process

    I find ww works better for me as I tend to overeat in sw etc especially on pasta!!

    Haven't weighed myself this week as trying to curb my scales obsession n keep it to once a week!!

    I'm trying to do mini targets so I don't feel like my goals are a mile off plus holiday booked for September so plenty time to knuckle down and achieve them

    Uh oh today has been a nightmare for food! Don't know where to start pointing as had amazing roast lamb (shoulder) with all the trimmings and a chocolate meringue dessert! Plus a couple of chocolates from my Mother's Day gift!

    I'm guessing that i should just write it off and just stick to my dailies for the rest of the week as my weeklies will definitely be gone!!

    It's days like this that normally throw me off track completely as I would then just think I've blown it already so might as well have more chocolate...!

    Today's food

    Shreddies 5
    Skimmed milk 2
    Banana 0
    Smoothie 4

    1/2 cheese and tomato pizza 9

    Lamb shoulder leftovers (lean meat only) 5
    Small baked potato 4
    Green veg 0
    Gravy 1

    Total 30

    Was trying to stick to daily points only (26) so slightly over

    If take out smoothie then would have done it!! Was craving a sugar boost at work this morning as hadnt slept well the night before. When I'm tired I tend to crave sugary carby food so all things considered, could have been worse than 30 points!
