    Hi I know myself being a yoyo 'dieter' how easy it is to give up and losing what I feel is 'slow' also makes me want to think I want to give up........


    So before you do please read and think



    Miss A and Miss B Have been yoyoing (losing weight & regaining weight) every year for 5 years,they both now have 4 stone to lose each after it started off 1 stone.....(Yoyoing usually makes us gain more than we lose over a period of time).

    Miss A and Miss B started WW on Jan 02 2009 both losing that steady 'slow' 1 lbs a week..........

    Miss B after 12 week's was really down at just losing 14lbs (1 stone :D) that she thought I cant do this anymore........
    So she stopped
    2 Months later May and 7lbs back on she thought OH NO SUMMERS HERE I NEED TO LOSE WEIGHT
    So she restarted WW
    12 Weeks later again losing the fantastic 1 lbs a week she loses a stone
    Again Miss B cant in her head feel this is fast enough so she stops again!
    2 Months later Septembers and CHRISTMAS is mentioned at work the office party she gasps OH NO I have to lose weight,this time a stone has come back on so she restarts ww again
    She sticks to plan she knows it works and by Jan 2nd 2010 she loses a stone :D

    Miss A she started WW 2nd Jan 2009 and she loses that steady fantastic 1 lbs a week and by Jan 2nd 2010 she has lost her 4 stone and is in a size 10 and starts the New year yoyo free and in maintance, learning along the way that this is a plan for life and 1 lb per week is slow but consistant :D

    So Miss A lost 4 stone
    And Miss B Lost 3 stone but still has to lose 2 1/2 stone as she has regained and lost.....

    So I was Miss B last year and every year
    Now I am Miss A

    WHO DO YOU WANT TO BE?

    Hi I think once we see this as a long term thing and we can have a blip but get back on track we can get our head in place,the thing is when we have many falls its hard to restart as I feel we worry we will repeat?
    I think we should try and make this out last time and use the choosen plans for life :) x
    I started 3 weeks ago at 17st 4 and I am looking at this a week at a time,how you doing?xx
