    Hi ladies just wondered if im the only one who has to ALWAYS watch there weight weight???
    It just seems ive always been on a diet for the past 18 years loosing the same stone and putting it back on on holidays and xmas. Im the one who always say no to a night out as i want a good week and when i get weigh in STS. Even though im moaning on a bit everything is great in my life just my weight. Why can something as important to me be so hard to acheive.....i love food. Going on a family holiday in 7 weeks and feeling regret of booking a holiday. Booked it a year ago and thought it would be an insentive to loose weight lol.
    So today i will start a food diary and drink more water, measure my milk and walk the dog. Sharon x :wave_cry:

    Hi - I know what you mean! I'm a real foodie - love shopping for it, growing it, making it, eating it - the works. In my ideal world food would not be linked to weight gain/loss - imagine that!!

    But yes, it gets me down. My whole adult life I've been up, down, and never really stayed the same. My wardrobe stretches from a 12 to a 22!!

    I think though, that my mindset is changing as I (rapidly) approach 40. I want to just be positive about me!! So SW is ideal, in terms of encouraging healthy eating of real food and regular exercise.

    Go for it - you can do so much in 7 weeks so your holiday can still be an incentive. And remember (in the words of L'oreal) you are worth it. Enjoy your walk, and have a good day! xx :)

    while i lived with my parents i was always dieting along with my mom and it always got me down :(

    since moving out and starting my own family im finding it much easier. i have been angry with my weight gain over the last few years, after having my daughter i lost loads (thanks to breastfeeding) but once i stopped i started eating rubbish again and put it and more back on.
    i have had enough! now i find it quite exciting! i know that im trying to loose this weight so it doesnt get me down, i just think about how great it will feel after its done! :D

    Ive always had to watch my weight. And get this my cousin and i are the same height, same size clothes same shoe and bra size and i am a good stone heavier:cry:
    If i stay the same or loose then gain then loose etc i ask myself honestly am i sticking to it 100% I try and kid my self i am but i'm not really.
    But i always do much much better when i keep a food diary x

    I'm the same my husband jokes that i've been on a diet for twenty years and I'm bigger now than I've ever been at just under twelve stones. I can remember going to s.w when I was nine and a half stones because I thought I was chubby.I've always watched what I eat even when I'm not at s.w I truly deserve to be slim it's sooo not fair. jo

    It has been getting me down recently while i was on ww, id just had enough and kept bingeing. Its my first day and it is difficult not to feel deprived even thought i dont really want the food i crave.
    Its just something we have to deal with if we want to achieve the losses. it sucks lol

    yeah it does.. it took me a while to realise even when your at target, food will always be a really big part, somthing you will constantly have to watch.. i will never be so lucky to just eat what i want and not suffer for it..

    it really does suck somtimes, and on a bad week it gets me down.. other weeks its just so natural now.. its just life!

    It can get me down sometimes and I find it difficult to stick to plan, just want to have a massive blow out, but manage to control it, then there are other weeks where I find it really easy to stick to and really enjoy doing the diet. To be honest I really think it depends on my mood. The happier I am the more motivated I am!
