    Right thought it was about time I started one of these things...

    Name's Laura, been "chubby" my entire life always size 14 as an adult. Gained weight at Uni and lost 2 stone at WeightWatchers but it took a whole year! Kept it off for 4 years, then went through a bad break up and ballooned up to 17st!!

    Bit the bullet in Feb 2011 and lost 6 stone in 7 months on LighterLife. I liked the absolutes of meal replacement, took the stress of choosing and cooking and temptation out of the equation. Ashamed to say I quickly put 3 stone back on. Went on Exante and lost 2 stone, then put 1 of those back on! Soooo infuriating to keep yo-yoing like this.

    I know why I gain weight, I know how to count calories and eat sensibly I just eat too much junk when I'm bored, sad, lonely etc!!

    So when my size 14 jeans got too tight over Christmas, thought enough is enough and ordered more Exante. Planning on doing it for a month and then switching to Slimming World as I know loads of people who've sustainably lost weight on that.

    Weighed in on 1st January at 189lbs (13st 7). Been 100% and tried to drink plenty of water.

    Weighed in yesterday prior to night shifts (3.5 days in) and was 182lbs!! Which is 7lbs already! Super pleased.

    Just wish I didn't feel so hungry!!

    Onwards and downwards everybody!!

    Well I'm still being very naughty and weighing in daily.... Got up and hopped on the scales before night shift and another lb down, yay!! So am now 181lbs or 12st 13.

    Means I've lost 8lbs since Tuesday which is more than the weight I gained over Christmas. My jeans are already feeling looser too thankfully!!

    I'd like to say I won't weigh in again til Tuesday but I know I will!!

    Resolve still pretty good, although the hunger is still there grrr!!

    Keep going everyone!!

    Phew, nights over. Absolutely exhausted physically and mentally, long shifts with v poorly patients. Plus I've got a horrible head cold, high temps muscle aches and runny nose!!

    Had to drag myself round tesco afterwards too.

    Mini victory however: Old me would have gone around feeling sorry for myself buying comfort food to slob on the sofa with, but I resisted, got home and had my shake!! Woohoo!

    Better be worth it in the weigh-in in the morning...

    Hope everybody's doing alright!!

    Well done hun, after night shifts I stock up on rubbish to munch on the way home, then eat rubbish in the day too for comfort food - such a bad habit!!

    Well the results are in...

    Weighed in this morning at 179.2lbs (damn that pesky .2!)

    This means 9.8lbs in a week. Am obviously very pleased but can't help thinking if it wasn't TOTM and I didn't have this stinking cold then I would've hit the full 10lbs!

    Still, hope everyone's doing well, onwards and downwards!!
