    Hi Siobhan

    I've just started calorie counting & am the same weight as you now after losing 2lb last week.
    I'm finding it really good so far, much better than dieting & only being able to eat certain diet foods.
    My calorie goals are 1,200 per day & I'm using My Fitness Pal.

    How are you finding the 30 Day Shred?

    Gemma x

    Heya :)

    Yeah I'm loving the shred. Bit disheartened as I've gained a lb this week but I'm figuring looking and feeling at my body this is water retention.

    Decided to bring my call down to 1500 to see if it balances out a bit better I can't go.as low as 1200 just yet as I've lost 6st with 2 and a bit to go and need the low numbers for closer to goal :)
    Good luck xxx

    6st is brilliant! I'm quite a way off yet, I'm only 5'4 so want to get down to 140
    Water is such a bugger isn't it?! I'm sure you'll see a bigger loss next week as a result x

    I must stress before I put up this entry I'm not your 'usual' calorie counter. I give myself the goal of 1600 but actually set MFP as if I were trying to maintain.

    Reason being I know my body., I.know my mind, and too much pressure is counter productive for me, just wanted people to kinda 'get' that :) I'm trying to steadily and sensibly alter my eating habits. So just so's you guys are aware to maintain is need to consume 2065 :)

    Milk allowance:
    250ml skimmed - 85kcals
    Oats so simple - 134kcals
    Raisins - 42kcals

    Lunch
    Sweet chilli chicken noodles - 546kcal
    Activia yogurt - 117kcals
    Diet coke

    Tea
    Ww risotto - 301kcals
    Bread - 142kcals
    Yog - 118kcals

    Snacks
    Yog - 118kcals
    Belvita - 236kcals

    Exercise
    Walking - 57kcals approx
    30 day Shred day 14 - 157 approx

    Total intake: 1819
    Net after exercise: 1589

    Happy with that xxx

    Yeah, I did a similar thing when I was struggling a lot for a couple of weeks. Checked my maintenance and just aimed to stay under that. Really helped me not go haywire!
