    Im not one for posting threads in forums.. in fact i don't think I ever have before!!!! but here goes!


    Hi, I'm Sarah, and I have now been doing slimming world for 17 and a half weeks!! wow I didn't realise it was that long...!
    I have just reached my first stone, and my weight loss is a lot slower than I a had hoped it would be when I started... but its coming off.. so I'm happy!
    I am a student.. I'm always skint, and just wondered if by starting a little diary which you can all read (and help me with :) and hopefully I can help you too... :)) I can stay on track with the plan.. and get this weight off!!!
    The past few week I have been a bit cr*p to be honest... I have been cheating and eating lots of rubbish.. but then having a couple of days of kind of just eating soup to make up for it... and I know that this isn't the best way to be dieting... but I can't seem to get out of this cycle... and because I am still losing weight I don't want to go back onto green/red and not lose as much.... I'm in a pickle!!!
    It is my 21st Birthday in just over 4 weeks... and I have bought a GORGEOUS little black dress.. and this time I didn't do the "its still a bit tight but it'll be ok soon coz i'm losing weight" thing.. it actually fits.. but could look nicer.... :)
    SO I have 4 weeks.... 4 (Wednesday) weigh-ins until I am 21.. my aim is to lose as much as I can by then!
    I am going to play around with these tickers and what nots to try and get myself a little more motivated.. and hopefully I will be a gorgeous young woman on that Friday night.. in that gorgeous dress... (PAH-HA-HA!... we can try! :))

    My target is to be 10stone 7lb.. it was 10stone.. but I think thats just impossible!
    I am 5"7'... (are those apostrophes the right way round? :eek:)
    and before starting slimming world, I NEVER weighed myself.. I think I went through a phase when I was 18(ish) whilst on the "Crunchy Nut diet" when I was weighing myself every week... and I think I was 13stone.. and got down to 12. But before that the only other weight I remember being was 9stone... when I was 11 (I was at boarding school and they weighed us to make sure we were healthy) I remember being heavier than the other girls in the boarding house but I was not fat... So it worries me that to be 'healthy' I should be 10stone (10stone-10stone7 is slap bang in the middle of the healthy range on the height/weight chart)... so 10stone.. is 1stone heavier than I was when I was 11..... that cant be right surely!?!?! or... do I just have heavy bones! :) hehe
    Sorry if I babble on... I'm very grateful to you for reading!!! :)
    feel free to write back... I'd love it.. :)

    Speak soon...

    I HAVE MET MY MINI GOALS EARLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I lost 3.5lbs this week - I have no idea how!! :) :) :) :)
    I am sooo chuffed! I reached Club 10 today, AND have now lost 1.5stone!
    If I keep this up, that dress I bought for my birthday might be too big ;)
    I dont think it will be possible to keep up a 3.5lbs weight loss, but IF i did, i would be able to lose another half a stone by my birthday - so i will have lost 2 stone! I am sooo chuffed! did anyone else find that the first stone was the hardest and then the weight dropped off quickly after that?? I'm hoping so!! :)
    Also, I worked out that I have lost 1.5 stone, and I have 3 stone left to lose - therefore I have lost 1/3 of the amount I want to lose!!!
    I hope some of you guys have had good losses too this week! :)
    xxxxxxxx
