    Hi everyone :D

    Well im back again and this time for good, i have decided no more “diets” no more counting points & syns, just everything in moderation.. a good balanced diet, with a bit more freedom at the weekends..i have been dieting on and off for so many years and i think as soon as u say ur on a diet u are constantly thinkin about food and to be honest i was becoming a bit obsessed, i am aiming for 3 meals a day and snack on fruit or something low calorie if i am hungry, im also goin to try stop weighin myself each week and try aim for once a month as u can become a bit obsessive with scale hoppin too.. anyone else feel same way as me?? Im goin to try keep food diary on here when i can from Monday to Friday... here goes day 1 and im feelin good :D look forward to talkin to u all :D

    22.8.11

    Breakfast – 2 shredded wheat with semi skimmed milk & a banana

    Lunch – sandwich on brown bread with chicken tikka & peppers, strawberries, pineapple & shape yoghurt

    Dinner – Potato wedges with mixed peppers, red onion, cherry tomatoes, bacon & sprinkling of cheese with tbsp taco sauce

    Hi

    Ive recently restarted after a very rocky couple of months. My goal is 9 stone by New Year (33lbs). I too am healthy eating and exercising. I am following Clair Nasirs Boot Camp DVD 4 times a week.

    hi there! im in the same position! dieted for 20 years now and just fed up! i try a new one weekly! and get fatter each time! i weigh myself daily and it sets the mood for the day!! not good! especially if i have gone up a pound! i have a 3 year old girl and i do not want her to become obsessed like me! I have also realised that i am more bothered about how other people see me rather than how i feel! it all stops now, healthy eating here i come, 3 meals with fruit as snacks. good luck everyone! xx

    Hi Amanda

    Welcome onboard! U remind me so much of myself when u say a new one every week and getting fatter lol i am exactly the same! At least we are putting a stop to it now as it is not healthy to be constantly “dieting”.. it really gets u down! Most other people can succeed in losing weight by 3meals a day and fruit as snacks so why cant we :D wat kind of things will u be eating? I like to get some ideas :D i dont want to cut anything out just everything in moderation :D

Im doin the same trying to cut out white bread and switch to wholemeal, oh i wont laugh bcuz i have one also and i spent £17 on it!lol if i fancy choc etc i will have it but only a small amount and if i fancy crisps it will be the low fat variety.. i really think the more u “diet” the more u want food and the more u put on! Its a vicious circle.. xxx

    Where did you ladies get your diet plates from?

    I'm starting a healthy eating regime myself today (am just trying to summon the energy to go to Morrisons!)

    I've been dieting since March, and lost maybe 4lbs by giving up junk food, 10 or so on Slim Fast and another few by calorie counting. However over the summer my progress has been very slow as I'm generally very good in the week then go nuts on weekends - I'm a beer/cider drinker which really doesn't help matters - and I refuse to drink Vodka because I don't really know my limits - and I hate the taste.

    Anyways, I figure I have another 8/9 lbs to go, maybe a few more or less - basically I want to get to the point where I'm happy so we'll see.

    I'm determined to go a last push on it and get the weight off once and for all, really don't care if it takes me until Christmas - I will get there and I will keep it off.

    Good luck ladies, and wish my luck in staying away from the cider and hopefully gettting a body that rivals a pussycat doll (haha I can dream)

    Am so thrilled to discover a healthy eating section to minimins!

    Have dabbled with lots of various diets....and got precisely nowhere! Every Monday I seem to start afresh and then start feeling deprived or unhappy.

    And yet I LOVE healthy food! So am going to just eat a healthy balanced diet! I'm fed up with being a bloody failure at all these commercial diets!

    Good luck to everyone!

    Up till tonight I have ate, slept and breathed food! And now I've decided its got to stop. Yes! We CAN eat like normal people! Might take a bit of practice. A few ups and downs. But I reckon we can do it! Good luck!

    Hello everyone,
    so can relate to all your experiences....on and off dieting for 20 years and still fat and miserable!! Go figure!!
    I have just read two really enlightening books which are....."only fat people skip breakfast" by Lee Janogly all about sugar addiction and overcoming it..very funny but down to earth and " overcoming emotional overeating" by Jane Hirschmann and Carol Munter....very good read.
    I fed up of the diet treadmill and have decided to do healthy eating and exercise and not be ruled by the numbers on the scales.
    I am sure it will be hard but have to change my habits for good....and forget the word diet.
    In one of the books she says sugar is an addiction and if you choose to eat a biscuit you choosing to be fat....harsh but fair!!
    Good luck with your healthy eating I am starting next weekend and so looking forward to this.:D

    The Diet Plate
    Diet Plate

    Hi all

    Its good to know that there are some others who use the diet plate. I lost over 2 stone with the diet plate and even had a photo:) shoot done for a magazine. Then I thought that once I had lost my weight I could just put the plate away and still keep the weight off Wrong I put 2 stone back on and hit the menopause. My plate is out again and I am trying to do some exercise every week. I sit at a desk at work so I try and go to the gym or exercise class on my day off on a Friday. I have realised that this has to be a life changing eating plan.

    Its great to have somewhere like this to get motivated and hopefully motivate others. I know lots about the diet plate so if you have any questions just ask me. They have changed the name to the portion controlled plate.
