    :welcome:delilah,

    Well looks like you have taken the first step and that is making a commitment that you are now prepared to do something about your weight!

    So well done:clap:

    In order to lose one pound a week you need to reduce your daily intake by 500 calories.

    500 x 7 = 3,500 = 1lb

    You can do this by doing exercise and swapping junk food for health snacks and eating smaller portions at meal time.

    Average weight loss is very difficult to define as we all lose weight at our own pace and very much depends on age, height, sex and life style along with chosen diet.

    If you want to lose weight by cutting down on portion size, eating less junk and doing exercise you could expect to lose about one to two pounds a week on average.

    You are looking possibly about losing three to six stone in a year at this rate.

    Hope that helps!

    Love Mini xxx

    Hi Delilah :welcome: to minimins
    I am expecting to settle down to 2/3 llbs a week (hopefully) if all goes well on a healthy eating diet with controlled treats now and then. I am also trying to step up the exercise
    Well done for making the commitment and good luck :)

    Well Delilah I'm not one for plans but I stock up on fruit and veg and keep anything with loads of fat and sugar to VERY occasional. The exception is that I have controlled treats. Being a choc-o-holic I keep funsize choc in and hidden. If I have had a good day I reward myself next day (get the picture - incentive) and I have the occasional glass of wine. I drink lots of water and don't play around with artificial sweetners. I don't feel hungry or hard done by - I feel GREAT. At the moment this is working for me. It's something to throw into the mix for you to consider. Oh and all I pay is the money for the food - no group fees. Minimins could be a great support whatever you decide to do - Enjoy :)

    Delilah - you may also get good advice on healthy eating from those on weight watchers and slimming world. They seem to do quite well while still eating a balanced diet
