    Well, though i'd start a diary, it may help me! I have lost 1stone 10lbs but these past 6 weeks i have been in a rut and dont seem to be going anywhere!

    My motivations for weight loss are:

    Being able to ride my young horse next year when she is ready and not be too heavy for her.

    To get back into my wedding and engagement rings which i had to cut off as i put so much weight on since i got married that they got stuck.

    Had an amazing chat tonight with consultant and group and feel really focused again! gotta get through this!!

    Will keep you updated!

    Well day one of getting myself back on track! 7 weeks to xmas, surely i can do 2lb a week and get another stone before then? Well i can only try and i'm the only one that can make myself do it. I have to think of the reasons why i want to do it and every time i feel myself crumbling just remind myself that i wont get the outcome i want if i dont do what needs to be done! At least through this rough phase i have gone back to group and stuck through it and admitted exactly where i am going wrong. No point covering up your mistakes right?

    So with all the best will and intention in the world i set out once again to do it right, but this time with a little more thought and care, afterall i'm only hurting myself if i dont!

    Hi ruth, sounds like you're doing everything right.

    i've just weighed in and i've put two pounds on!!

    well i'm hoping that its a late catch up from my blip that lasted a good fortnight, and everything i've done well this week will hopefully show up next monday, so i wont lose heart and just keep going as i was last week x

    fingers crossed eh!

    well done !!!

    2.5 is brilliant.

    well weighed in this morning and after last weeks disaster i've lost 1lb, so at least i've turned it around.:D lets hope it keeps moving downwards from now on!

    still not got back into swimming but having a few health issues at the moment which is stopping me from exerting myself (been told i have fibroids and a cyst) so am in a lot of pain if i do too much :(

    but lets not let that get in the way, i can do it with food for now hopefully!:)
