    I'm starting again tomorrow. I have managed to put on weight and be heavier now than i've ever been.
    I calorie counted last year and lost 18lbs, i began to feel comfortable and let things slip.
    I now weigh 15st 8lbs and at 5ft 2 this is a bit - no a lot rediculous and is causing me so much unhappiness.:cry:

    I have the myfitnesspal app on my iphone and will be using that to track my food every day. i will stick to around 1200 - 1500 calories a day.

    Please help and support me - i really need to lose this weight!!! xx

    Take one day at a time, don't worry about what happened yesterday or what may happen tomorrow. 24 hours is all we need to focus on.

    Good luck xxx

    HI- Thanks for good luck and support.

    I am still going!! lol. I have had a bit of a forget to count day today but other than that have been spot on. I am looking forward to weigh in tuesday - i think i'll have lost a couple of pounds which is good.

    As silly as it seems my goal is 1lb a week. i am going for the slow journey as i need this to be it.

    I am going to plan some lovely treats for each half stone i lose.
    So far i have got:

    Shopping trip - NO KIDS ;)
    Meal out with a friend
    New pair of shoes
    Manicure or Facial

    I'm sure i'll think of lots more ideas. :) So gotta knuckle down again tomorrow ready for my first weigh day on Tuesday!
