Good luck, there is plenty of support on here so keep posting x
thank you both, i set minimins as my home page, because i check my email before breakfast, so checking it means i can begin the day motivated :D
Hello and a huge welcome to minimins.
I was exactly where you are now, just under 10 stone to loose (9 if I'm happy whith that when I get there..) and I thought the mountain I was about to climb was bloody high..however, here we are, 11 weeks later and I am half way...

The diet is brilliant and allthough it possibly will not always be plain sailing, it works..

As for minimins - life saver and never ending source of great advise, lovely stories and the best help and support you can find.

Most peeps on here have a great amount of knowledge about everything and as we all put everything together, I don't think you'll ever NOT find an answer to any question you might have..

Gosh, long welcome - post, not normally like me but I have turned into a serial-poster..lol

So, good luck, take care and keep us posted..

i got 9 to go too, well its8.1 now so am inspired, fell off the wagon 2 days ago (chinese....oops...stress at work, excuse not a reason i guess!) and have put 2lbs on since, i got til tuesday to lose it (official weigh day) have to say i'm back on ssing and feeling a bit better, won't be cheating again though, not worth the hassle (or weight gain!) well done on your amazing loss, keep it up!
Hi Amelia,

just presuming you mean me and want to say thanks...encouragement is half the rent in this diet game...you'll do great too..in fact, you are doing great already...

Thank you for all the encouragement, I've looked around, and yep, some stories are really inspirational - keep it up everyone! :)

Mandye, interesting what you say about coming to the end of the easy bit. I think it's sometimes too easy to think of a diet as 'just to lose the weight' but maintenence will be the hardest thing. I know this is my way of life now and I am ok with that, I realised from the start that this would never be a short term solution to a lifelong problem. It's important to remember that
your not alone i have 9st left to loose as well, this site is great and the ladies(and gents) are all really friendly, and helpful.good luck on your journey, i am sure we can get there together.
Thank you skyemagic, hutchi, taz and mandye :)

Had a crappy day today dietwise, I'm getting freaked out by all the calories :S. it's not nice calorie counting. Didn't go to the gym either. Still, hopefully will make it up tomorrow morning.

Getting sick of steamed and boiled vegetables though, anyone have recipes which are low cal? Preferably with no eggs too :)

thank you all beautiful ladies and good luck with your targets xx
