    Hello all,

    I've just joined having stumbled upon this site - great see others in a similar boat.

    I have been struggling with weight issues - or should I say eating issues all my life. The lowest I've weighed is 8.7stone (briefly!) the highest 22stone - mostly I've hung about the 16's most of my adult life. Not good.

    I thought I had all of this cracked - had a great programme of exercise and healthy eating going for two years and lost 7stone but life/ stress got in the way and the old habits crepped back so regained some of this weight loss.

    So I am here to address the situation as best I can. Currently 18 stone 10lbs and hoping to improve on that by following a similar programme that worked for me last time.

    I live in an area that offers a rather innovative weight management programme that combines the usual diet and exercise advice with a support programme - group based - and has input from psychologists, physiotherapists, etc. It's what I could have done with years ago. I'm currently waiting for a place which will probably take a good three months, but I decided to get cracking on my own in the meantime. For me it's not losing weight that's the problem it's learning to deal with life so that I don't sabotage myself with food forever more!

    I'm following the programme that the WMS recommends - deducting 600 cals from maintenance cals - which gives me 2100 a day - very generous. And then aiming to do build some activity into my day to burn a bit more.

    Today - have had a healthy day and have been juicing fruits and veggies to have with my light meals - feel zingy. Also went for a 45 minute walk - feel good.

    Will weigh in next Sunday.

    Hi Gilly,

    Thanks for christening my journal - great to hear about your experience of the psychologist.

    Best,

    PP

    Hi all,

    Had a good day today (so far!) and kicked off with a carrot and apple juice and cereal bar, salad for lunch with smoothie and chicken, roast veggies and some bread and fruit juice for dinner. Feel charged up and high on all those vits.

    Walking - only 20 mins managed today as it was raining so I took the car - excuses excuses - have to get up earlier and do a stint of exercise before work otherwise I do very little.

    Anyway, it's only day 2 so am feeling good that it's heading in a positive direction.

    I'm going on holiday in a month's time so it would be nice to lose 7lbs by then and think this would be achieveable.
