    Well, today is my first day on the forums, so I think it's time I start my wee diary - I hope it'll keep me motivated as I can get how things are going off my chest, and have a look back at how it's going e.t.c

    As far as actually knowing my weight atm, I can't. I've recently moved out of my family home, and now live in the halls of residence at my university, and scales are not one thing I possess anymore - should I buy myself a set?

    Hi and welcome to the forums! Just wanted to wish you the best of luck on your weight loss journey :) everyone are so amazingly supportive on here. I look forward to checking up on your diary to see how it is coming along. As for the scales, I prefer to weigh myself so I would prefer scales but I know places like boots have scales you can use the shop (think it may cost like 50 pence or something).

    Thanks very much :)
    I'm going to be here until May-ish, but I do tend to pop home every fortnight or so, and obviously with that I'll have access to the scales at home :)

    They're isn't a boots close to the uni atall so that is a problem :(

    I think I might invest in a set of digital ones, or failing that, bring my wii to the uni with me - have wii fit and tend to use that as my accurate weigh-in.

    I think I'll invest .... you see, I'm a bit of a worrier and when I don't seem to weigh myself regularly, I tend to get worked up, really worrying myself as to whether I've lost/gained/maintained :(

    I know I can do it though!

    Well.. I'm home for a few days and thought I'd weigh myself to see what the difference was, if any.
    I am absolutely chuffed to say my weight has dropped down to 12st 6lbs, from 12st 8lbs.... I'm now at my lowest weight I've ever been.... like, ever :D!

    I've had a frustrating week - My weight just won't budge whatsoever :(
    I've been monitoring it daily via my Wii Balance board, as I have always done, and it just seems like I've hit a brick wall with it all, and it's getting me really down tbh!

    See that's the downfall in weighing daily, you don't see any difference. I know that it's hard, but try to restrict yourself to weighing only once or twice a week, maybe Sunday an Wednesday or something? your body changes day to day with water and stuff, so one day you might have put on a pound and the next you might have lost 2.
    Maybe try keeping track of your measurements? I do that and it's great to see where your losing inches, and inches dont lie.
    Good luck with it all!

    Feeling quite concerned today ... over the past 3 days, my appetite has been appaling.
    For example, all I had yesterday was a bowl of special K for breakfast, and same again for lunch, I felt I had no appetite whatsoever for dinner so skipped that. I've had this terrible appatite for 3 days now :|

    Don't worry, it's just one of those crazy periods. Keep the faith and keep doing what you've been doing right to bring your losses... don't let the absence of a loss dishearten you. You have done amazingly well, keep it up

    I know I have went A.W.O.L again - the weight crept back up to 15st 7lbs, but I've now gotten back down to 14st 13lbs, so I seem to be back in track

    I somehow, although really want to shift the weight, loose motivation for some reason
    I am promising myself and trying o have faith in me that this time, I'll reach my target
