    Hi everyone:) I have been reading everyones storys on this site for a while now as I need a kick start to get back into Weight Watchers!
    I started WW back in 2007 i think and started at 14st 8 1/2lbs on my second weigh in i had already lost 7lbs and was so pleased that something was actully working.
    I stuck to the diet religiously over the next few months and after a year got down to 11st.
    I cant believe how much my life has changed since loosing the weight i can fit into a pair of size 12s! :)
    But after xmas and a whole load of other excuses the weight is hovering around the 11st 8lbs mark and at the moment i am 11st 12lb after a week of non stop eating but the last few days i have been really good sticking to my points and exersicing! I just feel like i needed some support to help me keep going over the next coming weeks as i need motivation and having a boyfriend who lives on sweets (which is my downfall!!) doesnt help.
    You guys seem to all be doing so well and hope u can give me some advice too :)

    Katie x

    Oh, I am doing Cambridge Diet atm so an average loss is stone a month. Back on WW I'd lose half a stone a month.

    So, considering you have around 2s to lose - you should be on your goal in 4 months!!! Right in time for Summer x
    You must be excited about it, aren't you?

    I was the same when I first started with ww.

    Tried CD then and...only lasted 2 days haha

    Then convinced myself that it won't work for me so sticked to ww for a while (mind you, I did my own low-carb version)
    I was losing but I found it too slow...

    And started to incorporate remaining CD shakes into my diet. And slowly an idea of replacing a meal with a shake started growing on me.
    Besides, there are so many different options - you can have 2 shakes a day plus meal and some protein little snacks in between as well.
    So decided to give it a go and I am on CD since January again.

    I do have a "normal meal" though which is allowed on my plan and somehow managed to stick to it...
    Never thought I would be able to....

    I know there is a threat nearer the goal you are the more complacent you become. I decided to stick to CD until Easter (which should bring me to healthy BMI) and then get back to low-carbs WW.

    Whatever you chose it has to be something what works for you xxx

    P.S.

    I do get hungry sometimes and go give in but whenever this happens I would be straight back on track following day.
    Talking about determination x lol

    Try to increase your water intake (and I mean a lot!!!)

    It does help keep hunger away and speed up your losses.
    I don't think WW weight loss is slow - it works out average 8lbs a month and if you add some excercises it could be almost as quick as CD.

    Good luck hun xxx

    It's very important you won't miss any of the ww appointments - regardless of the results...It's too difficult to do it without any additonal support xxx
