Hi Queenb

It is so much harder when we try to do it for ourselves, isnt it. You just really have to be ready and do it for you and you know what to do, when you are really ready you wil be fine and it will fall off.

I am stuck in a rut right now lost loads then got really ill and am just coming out of it, I am waiting for that ready, set ,go feeling to jump back on the wagon.

I wish you all the best, see you on here soon sharing our great successes, good luck

Welcome queenb ... know where you are coming from. I lost 4st on CD in 4months ... became a CDC - then with the help of glandular fever and now ME have regained 2 and half of those lost 4stones. I sit here and talk to clients about making sensible choices - whilst eating bread, cake and biscuits myself ...... BUT I'm going to do something about it - and so are you .... you've not given up until you give up!!!

Welcome to Minis - we have lots of sections here - hope you enjoy looking around - and shout if you need any help!

Welcome to minimins - let us know what diet you choose (if any) or if you are just going to be sensible.

I am also a trainer and sometimes catch myself on saying "practise what you preach" - easy to say and tough to do

You'll do it though once you get your head in the right place.
