    hello all, here i am stepping up to the starting line, what a great group, found it a few days ago and am enjoying reading all the posts it has encouraged and inspired me, I have lots to lose and will be starting in a few days when i get myself organised, I am just working out food menus cos i know if im not enjoying what i eat i might as well give up now! also will get lots of moan and groans from rest of family cos they will be eating same as me. I went shopping after work to make sure have nice but healthy food, not much of the christmas junk left, my son is making sure of that..ha ha.. so come friday i should be ready for the start of my journey, It will be a journey of little steps because i want to be able to complete this journey rather that rush, run out of steam then give up.bye for now

    thanks all for the welcome, i have not picked a plan, shazza, im just going to take it meal by meal, and keep it healthy. i will be excercising by going on my running machine, all singing and dancing it is, gathering dust in the garage lol - and also my son has asked me to take him swimming - not to happy about going in swim suit, but a promise is a promise.
    but i have decided to follow DQ's lead and rather than look at what i have to lose as a whole, i will tackle it 10% at the time, so my first goal will be to lose 25lbs

    Sounds good to me - and dont worry about the swimming - after putting it off for years about getting into a swimming costume - Now love my aqua aerobics - there are not many people at the swimming pool that have perfect figures anyway so I wouldnt worry about it - just go for it !!!

    Is that 10% of your total weight or 10% of what you have to lose DQ?

    (I might be at University doing an English degree but as you can probably tell, my maths is pants!! lol)

    10% of my weight. Can't remember where I read it, but apparently losing 10% of your body weight lowers your BMI by a point (or two). :)

    Hi Littlesteps

    10% is a great idea, breaks it up a bit, think i need to look into doing this too! :D
    Are you weighing yourself? or does someone do it for you? Im now toying with the idea of ww or slimming world to help me! not sure if i can be trusted to go it alone!

    CD = Cambridge Diet
    LL = LighterLife Diet
    LT = Lipotrim
    VLCD = Very Low Calorie Diet
    SS = Sole Source (where packs are your sole source of nutrition)
    AAM = Add a Meal week


    Hope that helps! ;) Weekends are tough, but I love the idea of your hubby being your 'official weigher' :D
