    I just feel like this is such a tall order although I'm breaking it down into milestones.... Will ever be my 21 year old figure again?

    I just got back from gm class but feel very low over this

    You'll make it Laura:)
    You're on the right way, look you went to the gym so you're trying and you'll make it ;)
    Minimins is a very supportive site, so visit the several diet forums and the challanges forum as well and choose what makes more sense to yourself :)

    I certainly hope so! I'm aiming to lose 9st - more or less!
    I think sometimes you've got to think...I WILL get there! Breaking it down into chunks seems good too, mini-goals like I've seen on other people's sigs.

    Stay focussed, and we'll all get there, whether it takes us a long time or a short time, we'll all get to where we want to be!

    I've got 9st to lose also, I break it down to half stones or getting to the next number down on the scales, it was to daunting to think about 9st , I've lost 5st 6.5 so far , I'm focusing on losing 5lb to get me into the next stone down and my shiny 5 1/2 st then il focus on losin 2 1/2 to get my shiny 6

    So the trick is to break it down into half lbs, Any others that work for you ?

    Ive got 5 stone to lose too until I go to Thailand (honeymoon) in April 2012

    Lost 1/2 stone on my first week last week so not too bad :p

    Breaking it down into smaller goals definitely helps - looking at the total I have to lose always depressed me!

    Work in 1/2 stone amounts and give yourself a reward for each half stone - that worked for me, I had all sorts ranging from a magazine, nail varnish, a facial all sorts, that helped keep me motivated. Also keep track of your measurements, seeing those go down is a great feeling. You can get there. Good luck x

    Aww, sweetie :( I have 5st to lose as well (16st to 11st) and it seems miles away. Could you try and treat yourself in another way to refresh your perspective on your body? Get a really different hair cut or even a piercing?

    I just tried my first ever Fake Bake to make myself feel different... it certainly did... :p

    Sending you strong thoughts x

    Each pound off is a milestone and one step closer to your goal. If others can do it so can you! I keep looking at success stories on youtube they really help, and everyone here is so supportive if you keep checking in you'll surely stay focused enough to get to the end :)
