Hey, i just stumbled across this site!

My names stacey, im 19 from shropshire, the couple of years i have put a little weight on and its really beginning to depress me now! i hate my arms, they feel chunky, i cant wear any top without a jacket or shrug, thats how much i hate them! its the middle of summer and you can imagine how hot i feel with my arms constantly covered up!
at the moment i am 10 stone - size 12, maybe 14. im 5"3, im short so being 10 stone just makes me feel really frumpy... i would love to lose 2.5 stone! and be a size 8. my food weaknesses are crisps, and alcohol (strongbow cider) i dont exercise as i have no motivation! but now that my weight is beginning to become an issue, i really am eager to lose these few stone! i have no idea about diets and dont know where to start. as from tomorrow i am going to eat as little as i can, and when i do eat i am goin to make sure its healthy.
i have a brilliant ministry of sound exercise dance dvd, and am going to motivate myself to do the dvd workout everyday.

any advice would be much appreciated! obviously i dont want to cut alcohol out of my diet as i am a real party animal! ive heard the best alcohol to drink when your on a diet is spirits with diet mixers? is that right?

Hi there

Welcome to Minimins.

Id highly recommend WW as a good option! You can socialise, eat and drink alcohol and so long as you count it in your points it wont affect your weight losses.

Spirits with a diet mixer is great on WW as a shot is only 1 point for things like vodka, gin etc and diet mixers are free :) Bargain!!

Good luck what ever you decide on.

i dont want to join a club hun.

ive seen some of the diets on this website! the liptrim one looks good but do you have to be obese to start that diet?
iam a little confused as to what the other diets are...
are there any threads i could be linked to with a list of cheap low calorie simple meals/snacks? x

hi, welcome to minis.
i think you need to look into a number of diets and pick out the one thats right for you, it might mean trying a few before you find one that really works for you, as well.
if i remember rightly there is a calorie counting forum, where people might be able to help you a bit more if you want to do an lcd. have you thought about a low gi one, thats cheap, easy and sustainable option.
Good luck
