    Hi
    I have come back on the ww forum If this is ok with you all I cant find another diet plan so im going to have another go at ww and going to do it properley this time by having all my points . As im wanting some weight of by end of october just wondering how many stones could I get off I would love to be in a size 16 which is not really a big size but 14 would be a feather in my cap. When you are overweight you cant get nice clothes to fit as I had this problem the other day and it really got me down and upset as there is some nice clothes about for summer which when fat there is no point looking at them only dull drap colours like blacks and browns

    Really got to do something once and for all

    aww hun i really feel for you, you sound so low about it all. there really isnt need for it though instead of feeling down, try and think of the positive side of things......the slower you lose the weight, the more likey it will stay off!! think of how healthy you will be if you stick to the diet and think of it as a change of lifestyle rather than a diet as thats when most of us fail if we think of the diet word :rolleyes:

    good luck hun and keep posting to keep you on track :)

    p.s i hope that made sense, excuse if it didnt ive just woke up and head hasnt quite cleared yet :p

    Bethany, does it really matter how much you lose between now and October, so long as you're losing? I'm sure you will feel great weather you lose 1st, 2st, or 3st! So long as you're going in the right direction then you'll feel better just knowing that you're doing something - it's better than just thinking about going on a diet, or talking about going on a diet, but not actually DOING it. If you start your diet and stick to it from NOW, then you will have had a good loss by October. Nobody can tell you exactly how much you will have lost by then, but if you just keep thinking and talking about it without actually putting your plans into action then you'll just be in exactly the same weight in October as you are now.

    I'm rambling, so I've probably just confused you instead of getting my point across, but basically - if you start your diet now, stick to it 100%, then you will have lost a good amount of weigh by October - much more weight than you will have lost if you just keep putting it off.

    Good luck.

    Hi Marie
    I understand what you are saying ive been on diets along time and put weight on and then lost it its like yoyoing . I did start on ww then for a reason lost the plot again . I dont want to be this size in october like i am now if i am theres no point bothering if im not going to lose weight . Yes its true just make a good start and stick to it and surely the results will come if just get on with it.
    Thanks

    Exactly - so call today day one back on the plan and make sure you stick to it 100% from now on - no excuses.

    You've said on numerous occassions that you struggle to use up all your points. How many points are you on per day? Can you tell me/us what a typical days menu is for you on the diet? Maybe if people can see what you're eating then they can make some suggestions as to what you could change to make sure you're eating all your points.

    Bethany, if i recall you say you were struggling to use all your points but when you had desssert you would have fruit and WW 0 point jelly, why not try ice cream, you dont really need the 0 point stuff until your struggling to stay in the range.

    I cant see how you can struggle to use all your points ( just have higher calorie items ), you must be able to eat alot none of us got overweight by eating nothing, i dont mean to be rude but its a point.

    I dont think you can ask people what you should eat and how many points for b/fast and dinner just have what you fancy and count the points.

    Like b/fast mushorrom omlette is 3 points or if you need to use extra out it on a slice or 2 of wholegrain bread which is kind of 1 - 1.5 points per slice. I do feel for you because my mum is like you she goes on a diet and cant eat anything for fear of not losing then has no sucess so writes it off as disaster without listening to what people are telling her

    I do wish you success Bethany and hope you find something to suit :D

    hope my point came acros in the rambling lol

    Youre not going to get pulled up but what WILL happen is people will stop replying to your threads/posts again.

    Its completely disheartening to reply to posts and offer advice and help to have it completely disregarded all the time.

    There are loads of people on here who DO want advice/help with their diets who do listen and take on board the advice offered.

    People are happy to help you Bethany but sometimes its like going round in circles. If we offer answers and advice today are we going to be asked the very same questions again next week :sigh:

    Noone on here is perfect but, and we've had this conversation before too, you're asking the same questions all the time Bethany. If you look back on all the threads youve started its the same things again and again and again.

    The advice youve been given is great, its accurate, it works theres no more people can advise you.

    Why not go back over some of your old threads and youll see ALL your questions have been answered.

    We've all offered suggestions for you to increase your points, have spoken about average weight losses, stressed the importance of eating ALL your points etc etc

    People DO want to help, but the main thing is you have to want to help yourself first and foremost.

    But thats what i dont understand, why do you think you will go over them as long as you count and write down you will know where you are throught the day

    split them then

    AM - 5

    lunch - 7

    afternoon - 2

    dinner - 8
    dessert - 2

    evening - 2

    You can find things YOU like not what people tell you to eat, that are within the points value you have to use :)
