    Welcome Tiff, My tips are make sure you write everything down, and having a goal to aim for keeps me going, A holiday or a party that you want to look nice for etc etc.

    Good Luck!!

    Its funny how we are all on the same page here....writing what you eat down is ESSENTIAL I would say - its too easy to just forget that broken biscuit (they have no calories anyway, right?) and the odd nibble here and there at stuff.

    Breaking down what you have to lose into mini goals that don't seem too far off and giving yourself a non-food reward when you achieve, say, every half stone off.

    Good luck on your journey and we will all support you as much as we can. xx

    Welcome, Tif!

    At the moment, having a quick think before I pick up food is working for me: "Do I want this more than I want to be thin?" And since I really, really want to be thin I'm eating less and better.
