Hey!!

Wow 7lbs is fab. Do you weigh regularly at the gym or go to a class? Keep it up because half a stone is a fab loss.

Thanks for popping by my diary and pain relief advice hee hee!

Have a good day x

You have a good day too Penny x

Hello,
I'm new to Minimins, and just wanted to say I love your rewards idea. What a great way to get yourself motivated. Soap and Glory... Love it! And cool with the food diary. Are you doing slimming world? I want to but I missed the first 2 leaflets in the mirror, I only found out this morning about it because my dad saved me the leaflet thinking I'd like it. I'm gutted. The diet i had started wasnt working for me, it was a detox to kick start me before a healthy eating diet, but I wasn't allowed to eat bread, dairy (anything nice) and it gave me migrains, then I saw SW and thought great. Is there lots of good info in the first 2 leaflets?

Sorry to bombard you. Good luck with your diet, I'm going to take a leaf out of your plan and treat myself when I lose weight.

Thanks

Hi :) yeah the rewards make it worthwhile and help keep me motivated.

I am indeed doing slimming world. I have the books from following the plan previously, however I did have a peek at the leaflets when I was in the shop, but they didn't tell me anything I didn't already know. But for someone new to the plan like yourself it's be helpful. Also there's loads of info in the slimming world section of the forum so that will help you also if you need it.

Thank you and you too and you should definitely treat yourself. :)

I'm so sorry to hear you've had a tough week. Sounds like youve been doing well with exercise though, well done.

Have you actually weighed yourself? If you are putting on then maybe write your food down on here and we can all see of you're getting wrong anywhere? Could it just be bloating?

Hang in there hun, you will lose weight!! X

I havent weighed myself yet, probs gonna do it when i hit the gym this afternoon. Eeek :(

I have been keeping a personal diary of what i have been eating and it all seems to be good stuff, maybe im just being stupid :confused: I think the stress is getting to me a bit and im not sleeping well which i need to sort out because that wont help with the weight loss.

Im gonna start ensuring i post on here everyday though as it helps me keep my head in the game. :D

Weigh yourself today and see what it says. You may be pleasantly surprised, I hope so.

I am a rubbish sleeper so i know what you mean. As well as it not making you feel great it often makes you take things out of proportion so you probably think you've put on weight more than you have.

Hope you have a good gym session today and bit of me time.

:(

Had a seriously rubbish day today, just to add to all the crap in my life right now.
To top it all of my 'friends' left me alone at uni and this really upset me then i told them that this upset me and they basically went off at me. :( I feel as though i have nobody to talk to anymore. People who were 'friends' in the past have shown that they really arent by hurting me in ways which hurt to think about.

A far a food goes, ive followed the plan fine. Maybe not eating enough as ive been feeling so crap but ive been exercising and attempting to make myself feel better. Just wish i had someone who i could confide in
