    Think that's more than half the battle. Not digging into food when dealing with difficult situations. It's like retraining the brain - power to ya.

    Hi Hadgy,
    Thought I'd say hello as I too am at the beginning of a 10 stone plus journey, but doing OK so far! It does seem like a long way but so long as we tackle bit by bit we can do it in the end! 1/2 a stone at a time for me, I just keep telling myself only 7 lbs, you can do that no probs! Can't wait until I can start to feel it and see it!
    Is the dog on your avatar yours - v cute! We have three four-legged fur balls in our house to keep us busy! One of my incentives is to be able to walk them for hours (instead of a quick 15 minute walk with 15 mins of ball chucking in the middle so they run while I rest!!)xx

    Im doing Weightwatchers and but i am not weighing every week as don't want to get disheartened if i stay the same or put on so going to aim to weigh monthly (mainly to make sure my points are correct) and measure every month :) i go on the kinect and walk the dog for exercise but im thinking as i loose more weight i will become more confident and maybe try and gym and go swimming :D

    Day 5 going well having a Saturday night treat of Chinese tonight but just chicken chow mein before it would have been chow mein and lots of other stuff :( been trying to drink tea with no sugar and then with sweetner but really not enjoying it so going to just go back to my normal 2 sugars and point them :rolleyes: (i only drink about 3 cups a day anyway lol)

    Hope everyone else is having a good weekend? :)

    I think that's a really good idea, to only weigh and measure once a month....... wish I could do that :eek: I'm a bugger for jumping on the scales every day but I've tried really hard for the last couple of weeks to only do it once a week (I weigh in on a Monday) but temptation got the better of me on Friday morning and on I popped........ to discover I'd stayed the same from last Monday. Gutted :cry: Hoping this Monday shows a loss...... even just 1lb, as long as it's gone down!

    Good luck on your journey, you sound absolutely like your head is in the right place and that's more than half the battle in my opinion :)

    I too have to work hard not be a slave to the scales! This time I seem to be OK, and am sticking to just once a week - so far!!
    I'm not really doing too much in terms of formal exercise, just trying to generally move more at the moment (all the cheesy stuff that you always read like walking down the office instead of emailing, finding excuses to go up and down the stairs and home) and walking the dogs when I can. Feeling good today as did a good 40 minute walk through the woods, the weather getting better helps! Not long now until it'll be light enough to start walking properly in the evenings again! I'd love to go swimming but not brave enough to expose this body to the unsuspecting, unprepared public!!!

    Enjoy your Chinese Claire, sounds yummy! We're having a 'normal' dinner but with a ice cream sundae type thing for a treat afterwards!

    Hope everyone is having a good weekend xx

    I have started swimming again too, I go with my husband. Worst bit is walking around in swimmers but got a cozi with a skirt type thing - which helps. :)

    Hiya

    have you been using the boots scales for your weight before today?

    Different scales can give different readings. I have learned the hard way to always use the same scales each time at approx same time of day each week.

    I bought myself some medical scales like the doctor uses! in a sale about 18 months ago, but scales are scales, so when you get some, just weigh youself on them and only them for acccurate results.

    Remember clothes and even heavy jewellery can add some weight. I weigh myself at home in the morning of my weigh in wearing nothing but a smile :eek: (not a pretty sight at the moment :rolleyes: ) but that way I can't blame clothes for the wrong result.

    Obviously, you can't follow that plan in boots ;), but once you've got your own you can! In the meantime wear the same clothes each time you weigh in at boots.

    Good luck..you can do this!

    Hello and :thankyou:

    This was the first time i have weighed since starting WW, last time i weighed was probably a year ago,i knew i had put on some but not nearly 2 stone :cry:i weighed in socks,light t shirt and leggings (not such a pretty sight but weighed less than jeans lol) so i will do the same next month and hopefully won't be seeing what i saw this time round :D
    Still feeling positive and even more motivated than before :)

    Good!!! keep thinking postitive thoughts, you are going to do this. Like me, it won't be instant and won't always be easy...but it is going to be so worth it :)

    I remember thinking about 6 years ago...

    "what, 16 stone...I can't be!"

    Then having a sneaky weigh in and being 18 1/2 stone and being mortified

    Last year, I reached 20 stone and thought, how awful, i must lose weight

    NOW here I am 21 stone 5lb, miserable as sin and it took a huge reality check to get me on track.

    Come on, link arms with me, we are doing this one day at a time, and the only massive thing at the end of it will be our grins :D:D

    Good luck :)
