Bearing in mind I'm not back on plan until Tuesday and have been absent for months, it's a little bit naughty of me to come on here and chivvy folks along BUT there are a lot of people posting who are feeling low either at their weight loss journey in total or with a bad week (or couple of weeks).


Number 1 - The fact you are visiting the forum and talking to people shows you are serious in doing this.

Number 2 - The chances are unless you started recently you weigh less than when you started. Be it 1lb, 1 stone, 5 stone - it's a step in the right direction. You may have had gains and STSs BUT overall your weight has gone down.

Number 3 - We are animals. Our bodies naturally want to store fat for the winter. It may make it harder for many of us at this time of year but that means you should be doubly satisfied with any gain or STS. (For those of you who don't find it harder this time of year, you lucky devils :p ).

Number 4 - This weather does make you feel down and things that wouldn't make you feel low normally drag you right down. Try and remember these feelings are because of the weather and do the British thing - let off steam by moaning about it as it is the weather that deserves all the grumbles.

Number 5 - Looking at the statistics when people post, there are a lot of fantastic achievements going on in this group PLUS there are a lot of people who say they feel unattractive when their profile picture shows that they ARE.

Number 6 - Try not to compare your results with other people. Everybodys body is different PLUS there are people, like yours truely, who have loads of weight to lose so will often have bigger losses but if you look at the weight loss as a proportion of total weight to lose you are WAY ahead of me!

Number 7 - 'Life' happens. Everybody has days, weeks, even months when 'life' is just not going right and at those times concentrating on an eating plan is not a priority. That is totally natural. The last thing you need is you beating yourself up over every slip up. Learn to forgive yourself for things that can't be helped.

Everybody in this group should be very very proud of themselves for their achievements

(Apologies if I sound like an old nag and apologies for any cock eyed logic or poetic licence with psychology or biology :p )
