Hello calorie counters! I am a serial dieter who has been on Minimins for a while now, and have decided to try my hand at CC.

I've previously done WW and SW, but have decided to try something different, hence CC. I'm looking to drop around two dress sizes in time for my hols in just under four months, and will be exercising with Zumba and weights. I've also signed up to the myfitnesspal app on my phone to track.

Looking forward to chatting to you all. Just wondering if anyone has any tips or words of wisdom to share!

Hello, and welcome to CC'ing! I've tried most diets myself too, but find calorie counting the least restrictive. Good luck!

Thanks hun! Will deffo have to have a nosey on your diary! How have you found your losses since you switched.

Ive put a few days food into my fitness pal and have found that its not too high in cals. Its mainly my portions that need looking at which i knew was the case, as well as cutting down on little snack things like muller lights. Its also helpful to see how much i 'earn back' for my exercise. Now i know my zumba sessions will have a good impact on my weight loss!!

Tbh i could probably do with not weighing. Im not too bothered about how much i weigh, my main concern is looking good in a bikini for my holiday and fitting into a size 12 dress ive got. As long as i can do that i dont care what the scales say.

Hi Funky Munky, welcome and welcome to MFP too. If you want to be friends on either I'm Fionat29 on both. I only joined to lose 10lbs originally, but lost that and am now on the next 7lbs, thinking about the 7lbs after that. Lol! CC seems to make things easy but MFP and minimins make it easier still! I love them both.

Hi, I'm Shazzabir on MFP. I switched from WW to CC and have never regretted it. Cc is far more flexible and makes it easier to do as a lifestyle change. Portion size is important and I do recommend kitchen scales. Good luck :)
