    I have taken advice of having a book with goals, weigh in's, reasons why I want to lose weight etc.

    But I don't know where to start, I have dug out a an old note book but I don't know what to put it in.... Please help...

    Start with your reasons, what made you first go ' I need to do something about this!', is there a photo you can stick in there to keep you on track?
    Then your goals, one step at a time, get into the next stone bracket, lose a stone etc
    Then work out how many lbs you want to lose and make a page into squares you can colour in/mark off as you lose each lb.
    Have you done your measurements? You can track these on another page and your weekly weight loss on another.
    Good luck hun.xx

    All the things you want to do but weight is stopping you, all the things you want to do when you are slimmer. when people say nice or encouraging things to you write it down - At the moment I am thinking packets of butter - one of the Mums(i don't know her really - not even her name) who knows I am doing CD came up to me in the playground a few weeks ago and said - you are looking really good how much have you lost - I said 52 lbs and she said well done and walked off. Then a few mins later she came running back and said you have done so well do you know you have lost 104 packets of butter! My face was a picture. It was so lovely of her and now when I am having a weak moment I think of that - so 126 packets of butter now - yeugh - how gross!

    i did a journey book when i did LL and it has been fab, especially as i have since had a baby and re-gained what i lost, its a great motivator. i decorated my pages with pretty paper and stickers ect and put in it anything i felt i wanted in it, most of which has already been mentioned on here by others so im sure ul have a fab book in no time at all. im starting CD on 27th Dec and will be starting a new journey book as i have about 6 stone to lose, i cant wait to get it started and its great to help keep u focused too, good luck and wish u every sucess :) x
