Hi and welcome. You need to have your head in the right place and want to lose weight for you. Take one day at a time and make mini targets rather than looking at the whole picture

Good luck

Hi. I have been there and done that - tried so many times to lose weight. WW, SW, adn all sorts of fad diets, starting frm when I was about your age too. I am 49, so nearly as long as you have been alive, I have struggled with my weight.

I could never lose beyond 2 stone.

I found out there was a lot of emoitonal stuff - pretty heavy stuff, that was blocking me. Once I faced those things, and finally dealt with them, I seemed to find a new path.

Then I learned about LIghter Life. When I hear I could lose a stone a month, I couldn;t believe it - I thought that seemes manageable. Having to lose over 100 pounds conventionally was just too much for me to bear....I knew I would never have thte stick-to-itiveness required...as it would take a couple of years.

So, I did do LighterLife. And the counselling helped me deal with my emotional attachment with food, and why I ate like I did. I learned SO much it was amazing.

Following right the way through the management section, sealed the deal and tought me how to approach maintaining the loss.

I lost over 130 pounds, and I have been maintaining that loss, for the first time in my life, for over 7 months now. A record.

There are lots of VLCD's that work. LL jut has counseling which was important for me.

By removing food completely from the picture, I could face the things that kep me fat.

Best thing i have ever done for myself.

Good luck to you.

Lostintime - welcome to Minimins! You mention that you're not hungry when you eat, so there are obviously some emotional factors that are causing you to eat. You will need to find out what these are and address them. Get to the route of the problem, otherwise it will always be there. All diets will work in the short term. You will lose weight, but diets can only help you tackle the physical aspect of weight loss. You need to take care of the inside as well as the outside. If you have the funds, maybe doing something like LL will help? Or you could do another diet and enter into some sort of counselling for the emotional eating?

BL - You always look so elegant in your pictures! And always full of advice! I love reading your posts! I have lost 20 lbs (nothing compared to your achievement) and still have 20 lbs more to lose. I was thinking about putting a "before" and "half way there" photo up, but not brave enough yet! Maybe one day....one day I will be brave enough....

Hi Lisa :)

Thank you so much for your lovely compliments. :)

You are doing great yourself. And it's not the amount we each lose that counts - its the fact we are all doing it. Your acheivement is every bit as important and impressive as mine.

Well done you!! :)

hi everyone!
I kept losing it then gaining it too, but now I am really trying and hopefully going to stick it out. I am looking at mini targets like IreneH said, and everytime I have a good week I buy myself a little reward (not food) like a new bit of make up or some sandles from primark :) I dont know if this will help but Ive also got a picture up of a much skinner, younger me in the kitchen... to try and motivate me to stay on track when feeling week. good luck xxx and good luck to everyone else xxx
