I havent dieted since 2011 and I have been putting it off because of how unhappy it can make me feel. But having been with my OH for 10 yrs and gaining 6 stone, i really want to be happy with myself.

SW has worked for me best in the past, i truly think it is the best eating plan for life, it just requires a high level of organisation (i am a student now, so hoping i can get some healthy habits in place before i start back at uni in oct) Anyway I'm rambling...

Just weighed in & I've lost 4lb! Happy, but I'm wondering what I could have achieved without the 2 meals off plan.

Going to aim for 3lb off this week so I can get half a stone done and dusted :D

Nothing significant going on in the week ahead as i am still off from uni. Have a friend coming for dinner on Saturday night, but she has work early Sunday so won't be expecting to drink lots.

Meals planned for this week:
Sausage pasta
Roast chicken
Spaghetti bolognese
Thai yellow curry

I also plan to do an exercise DVD alternate days along with walking more; i have a fitbit, but my average daily steps is shameful (under 5000) to i am going to aim for 10000 each day.

Hey, here to sub :) congrats on your loss! I have a Davina DVD that I recently bought and wondered if it's any good? I have the super body workout one x
Hiya, mine is called intense i think, it is interval training, so short bursts of high intensity alternated with breaks to recover your hear rate. Its OK so far and i did ache the following day, although i must admit i have only done it once :eek: haha x

I wish I did it the way you are! I waited until all the engagement celebrations were over to diet. My weight was in the back of my mind the whole time! Good luck with your diet, studies, and wedding plans.

I guess because my FIL's are in Australia (they were looking after a sick uncle who has now passed away) i knew it would be a while before we have our official engagement celebration & SW has been on my mind anyway, i nearly joined a few weeks ago before we went on holiday. I always find reasons not to diet, so i took advantage of the engagement as a trigger. Plus i have no idea when we'll get married, it could be this year (doubtful but a possibility)

There are so many could have should have's that i think it's great you're doing it now & don't beat yourself up about it xx

For me I'd be devastated if I didn't! I lost all my excess weight in 2011 and then put back on some. Never got around to losing it. Now I'm terrified that I won't look as good as I did then. Next July is the big day. I think I'll be alright if I focus, but really need to get going with it!

You will definitely be able to achieve that before March, just think how amazing you will feel walking down the aisle knowing all the hard work paid off.
