    Hello all,

    I'm starting (again) on a healthy eating plan - no diet no fads- just cutting out rubbish and having 3 meals a day. To be fair I'm struggling....terribly. I start on a Monday great ans full of enthusiasm come to Friday it all goes horribly wrong, i really dont want to go back down the Weight Watchers route a) because of the expense and b) because i want to do this without obsessing about points and cheating etc. I have a hectic work schedule and sometimes struggle with routine. I am lucky in the fact i can walk to and from work when im not working in london which is a good 50 mins walk so this is great ... if i stick to the healthy eating. I have no one to talk about it with as all my work mates are a healthy weight and my close friends are too - my wonderfull husband is too blessed with a fast metabolism and i have a feeling of dread when he looks at me that he eventually just wont fancy me for much longer. when i met him i was between 12 - 13 st and now im a whopping 16 st. I hate my image which i know doesnt help and even more i hate my pathetic will power. I hope someone here is feeling how i feel - and could be a kindered spirit :)

    Phew! i feel better after that!

    hi, well you just need to focus and think positivly, healthy eating is a good idea rather than those diets you will learn a few things along the way and you will be less likely to put weight back on,

    its best just to take each day as it comes, make sure you plan ahead what your eating, i find it fun to do nice recipes and also set small goals, and its great that you can walk to work, walking is great.

    optimum nutrition and lots of exercise!
    dont have any crap in the house. my oh has probably the fastest metabolism in the world. he eats far more than i do, and lots of chocolate etc, but i refuse to buy it, and he's eating healthier as a result. he understands that i dont want it in the house, and if he wants choccy or crisps, then he buys it himself!

    put all your spare change in a tin or piggy bank at home, and dont keep it with you in your purse - that way you wont be as tempted to grab chocolate et al on the run. plus, you save up the pennies which will be satisfying to spend on a nice new dress when you have lost some weight!!

    good luck, and remember, there's always someone here to support you when you feel your will slipping. i'm doing much better for logging on here once or twice a day and simply topping up my motivation.

    I agree with Rhuba - just don't have anything you really don't need in the house. I follow the WW technique without going to the meetings.
