ayembee's weekly weigh in, WEEK 12

week 2, day 2

I lost 2.5 lbs,
I am eating healthily and watching my portion sizes. although it has been hard over the BH weekend.
I wish it was a huge amount like some doing the CD etc their losses are amazing, but I don't think I could stick to those diets, so it's just going to have to take a while.
I think from reading other posts for tips, I need to drink more water so I will give that a go this week.

I don't know how to update the ticker thing.

2.5 lbs lost and 75.5 lbs to go

Well done! try weighing something that weighs 2.5 pound and just see how heavy it feels!

Congratulations and good luck for the next week xx
Hi Ayembee

2.5 pounds is a great start! (I couldn't manage any loss with healthy eating!!!:mad: although it was good prep)

I'm not doing a VLCD - I'm following the GI Diet and I've lost four pounds in my first week... Apparently I should lose a similar amount this week and then it's two pounds a week after that. I know 2 pounds per week might seem not much but if you can do that every week - thats over half a stone every month. Are you also doing exercise? I know that playing sport or exercising helps the weight come off too...

I need to lose a similar amount to you so I'll be here too for a while with the slow and steady approach!:)

Well done and good luck! xxx xxx

2.5 lbs is great - well done mate :cool:
well done on the loss!

Go to the ticker web site, log in and edit it there - well, works for me.

Have a good day!:) :)
Thanks everyone for your support and comments, i appreciate it.
You are all doing great, it gives me a boost just reading all the posts, everyone is so friendly.
Curvy chicken just read your blog thing, it's really good, you write really well, i will have a look on ebay and the other clothes sites too.
Its good to know I'm not going to be the only 'slow coach' on here lol,
although I wish I could do the VLCD's, everyone seems to be doing amazingly well on them,
I did slimfast a few years ago for ages and lost loads, eventually I put it back on and a ton more, and once I have done a diet for ages I find it very hard to go back to that one and try again,
I have to try a different approach each time, I have lost all the weight quite a few times but never learned to keep it off.
I have recently given up paying a monthly gym sub 6 months after i gave up the gym, I hate exercise, but I am psyching myself up to walk everyday.
Hope everyone has a great week! good luck xx:)
week 3

I thought I was doing ok until I stepped on the scales this morning.
The scales show I have put ON 1 lb!
It's not fair, I didn't go out for dinner or have any take away at the weekend, I ate healthy food, loads of veg,more water than i usually drink,
I rarely drink alcohol anyway so didn't miss that, no chocolate, no crisps, no biscuits, no cheese, no pizza! I ate loads of fruit and veg a little chicken, some fish, and i piddling well put on a pound.
I don't mind cutting back and not eating whatever I like and sticking to healthy eating, but i'm starting week three today and have lost 1.5 lb,
I think I will read the GI diet book again see if I can manage to follow it.
I hope everyone has had a better week than me.:(

1.5 lbs lost 76.5 to go

chicken on a mission

Restarting to lose 4stone
That sounds like me, I stuck to LL 100% and put on water last week :rolleyes: I'm matter of fact about it now but I wasn't at the time. :mad:
start 15st 8lbs
week one - 2.5lbs
week two + 1 lb
week three - 3 lbs

I am happy with 3lbs loss, but have decided to give cambridge diet a go, just need to find a counsellor now.
I have cut carbs down today and have managed to drink 4.5 litres of water so far will try and sink the next 1/2 litre before bed, I have never drunk so much water but am going to try and get used to it before I start the cd properly,
