C'mon girl .. if I can jump off wagon and wave it goodbye during this week and haul my [email protected] back up and SS and STILL lose 3lbs ... anyone can!!!

    Go for it girl .. TODAY!!!

    I'm on Cambridge (did first 4 weeks on Lipotrim but found it too restrictive) and have to say I love it!!

    You need to refocus ... okay, say to yourself I will do this for 100 days (only 14 weeks) ... a third of a year!! And I will NOT break it in that time for ANY reason!!! (apart from medical intervention of course) ... Also think of the summer coming up and how wonderful you will feel to have lost 3 stone (at least) by June and be slimmer for the summer!!

    Girlie you can do this .. you need to visualise yourself slimmer (I found this really hard at first but it CAN be done)

    PM me if you need more motivation offline .. but dont throw this wonderful chance away!!!

    Bethany have you thought about trying another diet for a while, maybe if you were following one which had more people doing it, and more support and posts on here it might help a bit?? :)

    I know Id be lost without the WW section on here

    3 if you have to weigh everything that you eat as someone told me you have to weigh every thing

    Bethany to be honest WW isnt hard... you seem to worry a lot about weighing portions, I use my scales about 3 times a week theres very little to it.

    You asked on the WW forum if people found they were hungry and the answer was a resounding NO, noone felt they were - ever. I can say hand on heart Im NEVER hungry and even if I was well I have something low or free in points.

    Even if you do have to weigh things now and again, a little bit of work for a good weight loss HAS to be worth it.

    At least if you try WW or SW youll get loads of help and tips on here which in itself make things SO much easier

    Why not give it a try for a couple of weeks and see how it goes.

    I found spreading them out over the day tricky but if you have a breakfast, lunch and evening meal youll find they go in quite quickly but you still have some left for snacks.

    Have a look at the WW forums, Sparkle and Marie have posted a lot of days menus which will give you an idea of how easy and versatile it is.

    WW do a lot of foods which have the points worked out and all of Tescos own brand low fat foods have the points on them too, which make it even easier

    Hi Bethany

    Have you thought any more about trying Paul Mckenna? I know you now have the book and CD, perhaps you could give this a go now, then you will not have to obsess with the weighing and portions etc.

    Not sure if you have been in the PMK forum recently, but a few of us now also have the book called 'Beyond Chocolate' (link below) which we are using in conjunction with PMK and I am sure this will answer all the questions you were always so unsure about with doing PMK, see what you think, good luck Bethany in what ever you decide to do

    You have to count fruit but a really big portion is only half a point so really it doesnt affect things much. Youd need to eat an absolutely massive amount of fruit for it to eat up a lot of points.

    I had a LARGE bowl of fresh fruit salad and yoghurt last week and it was only one point, you dont have to weigh a banana, the WW points books tell you how much a banana is, youd have to weigh grapes, but youll find once you get into it you dont cos youll know how much things like that are.
