    Hi everyone,

    it's hard to know what to write really..but basically I'm here because I'm trying to lose weight. I've tried a couple of times before but have been frankly rubbish at it.

    But lately lately things have changed; and for the first time ever I really want to do it. Not for my family or really because I'm unhappy with myself either. I just feel like now is the right time to gain some control over my life, my health and my future.

    I weighed myself yesterday and i am 19st 4lbs, my first goal is to reach 18st 11lbs by my 25th birthday on 15th April and at this early stage I'm confident but there's a looong way to go yet; I'm only 2 days in but it's going well so far...hopefully I can keep my positivity going!

    aims xx

    I'm basing my diet on slimfast but having fruit or salad krisprolls for my lunch and I'm getting about 1200 - 1300 kcals a daf at mo.

    I know what u mean though - I'm on day 3 and it's the first day I've felt really hungry but I haven't given in so far.

    Which slimfast snacks are you having? I love the nutty or caramel choc bars and the cheddar bites - oh the cheddar bites! They are soooo yummy and 45p a packet - cheaper than a mars bar :)

    Keep going you will get there!!

    Hi SugarBlomme and well done on taking the first step! I love these forums and take huge inspiration from them when I need motivating. Have you checked out the motivation slide show?
    I'm on Slimming World, can't do VLCD or slim fast type diets as the more I feel deprived the more I want to eat! I also track everything I eat and all my exercise in myfitnesspal.com - it takes your current weight, height , activity levels etc and gives you a calorie count for the day :)
    Good luck with your journey!

    Thanks Phunkie, that's really helpful :)

    I know what you mean re deprivation, that's why I've personalised so I can eat food at lunch time - If I didn't I'd def fall off the wagon! I like the diet though because of the rigidity - for me flexibility and variety don.t work. Having said that, though, I don't think I could do a full on VCLD..they seem to work for loads of people though - they are stronger people than me!!

    I'm in this for the long haul so I'm not worried how long it take :)

    Hope SW is going well for you!
