    well 100 lbs then 63lbs next year - i alway put too much pressure on myself to lose far to much weight in not enough time, so this year no pressure just 100 lbs!

    i refuse to say i am on a diet so just being extra careful in my food choices and starting to exercise (all i have done previously is walk to the car and back :mad:), i am on week 2 of my diet weigh day tomorrow, fingers and toes crossed.

    Great result, well done :)

    I've just been setting some mini targets for over the next few months to make it seem more manageable - just hope I start hitting them soon!

    Well done :)

    I'm trying to lose 108lb this year (started SW on the 2nd Jan) ... It's hard work but I'm hoping I can do it! Had my 3rd weigh in this morning... only lost 1/2lb this week (not so good considering I've stuck to plan) but that's 6.5lb I've lost in 3 weeks... (not as much as I'd like - but better than nothing!)

    hi amy r - your doing really well, some weeks you dont lose what you think but dont let it pull you down and keep plodding along til the next week :) we both have a long journey this year but am sure if we set our minds to it then it will be possible, i just keep thinking about the summer and maybe by then i could buy some nice clothes - hopefully by then i can shop in new places and fit into there clothes, hope your ok and motivated

    Thank you :)

    I'm definitely sticking with it!

    I've started doing yoga (at home) 3 times a week so far, it's hard work! I'm hoping that once I've lost a few more pounds I'll have some confidence back & can get down the gym!

    I weighed myself again today, usually I weigh myself Thursday mornings (by pure fluke - I always go to the bathroom *ahem* first thing in the morning - only yesterday I didn't & felt rather bloated) anyway - I weighed myself again this morning & instead of 1/2lb it was 1 1/2lb... Takes me to 7 1/2lb in 3 weeks :)

    (Am a bit happier with that!)

    I didn't take 'before' measurements but I've definitely lost inches!! :) A couple of my work dresses were much more comfortable this week & I have a gorgeous coat that usually when I breath out the bottom two poppers ping open.. Tried it on last night - no pinging open for me! Was walking round the apartment going to my bf 'look look' whilst bending down, turning round, leaning sideways, breathing out as much as I could LOL :D

    it seems to be working for me - am sure i have given in by now all the other times i have done this - even a few people have said how i seem different this time and how much i am enjoying all the exercise. i dont even crave chocolate now - OMG did i just say that someone slap me lol.

    just to motivate me i have signed up for race for life twice, 1 normal one and the 2nd is a 5k pretty mudder in september - 33 weeks to lose weight and get fit ekk.

    Hello, hope your doing ok x

    I did the race for life and absolutely loved it. Go you!!!

    That's great that you're no longer craving chocolate. Unfortunately, I'm still a slave to it hence why I've got a choccie flavoured protein shake. Not quite the same but I'm definitely looking forward to treating myself to the real stuff on reward day! Xx

    Hey xx Did you do the 30DS today? I did and really struggled with jump rope (well my calves did as they were burning) today so I ended up changing that one exercise to a lower impact cardio.

    I love swimming and I wish I could go but not able to at the moment. Not sure how far I could swim - probably not that far but I used to go more for fun than exercise!

    Well done for swimming. You're doing really well. Just remember to give yourself a little break as it can be too much sometimes. Best to start the 30DS when not working. Xx
