The Start. . . .

I started my healthier eating last friday and my first goal was to lose weight by today. Weighed myself this morning and i've lost 3lb :D. So my next goal is to lose weight by next friday. I'm not bothered how much i lose just as long as i lose!
I'm not on any specific diet, just trying to choose healthier food, not snack like i used to and make my portion sizes smaller. Seems to have worked for me this week.
I'm not in a rush to lose the weight as I want to be able to keep it off and i feel this is the best way for me to acieve it.
All in all a good week for me (missing the snacks already though lol)
Planning on doing my wii fit exercise for a minimum of 30 minutes a day, so far i've managed about an hour a day. Bought a new just dance game the other day just to make sure i don't get bored doing the same thing over and over again.
Sounds ridiculous i know but when i've lost some weight then i'm going to consider joining a gym and starting swimming. Don't feel comfortable at all with my body as yet to exercise infront of anybody

Heya, great loss so far, well done!

I was so nervous about joining the gym, but when I did it it was really worth it. No one looks at you and judges, trust me. They're all too busy doing their own work outs. if you look on a site like 'voucher cloud' you can usually get a free 1 day pass for a couple of different gyms, so you can just try it out and see what you think.

Good luck :)

Hi Cooch :)

Well done on your loss so far. You sound like you've got exactly the right attitude, which is half the battle in my experience.

For low-fat snacks I like the following:

Sugar free jelly
Chopped fruit, whatever you like; bananas, grapes, strawberries are my favourites....... covered with a low fat yoghurt. Lovely and sweet and filling too.
Velvet crunch crisps are fab for a savoury fix, only about 80 cals and very tasty. Quavers, Skips and Wotsits are similar too.

Don't deny yourself too much though. If you want a treat.... whether it's a bar of chocolate, a glass of wine, whatever - have it but don't go mad ;) I find if I deny myself too much then the danger of a binge is not far away but by allowing myself the odd, small treat it makes life easier and more manageable.

Lots of luck :) x

So I did my weigh in on Friday and. . . . .
3lb lost :D :D
I'm very happy but i have struggled this week. I seem to be craving everything i vowed to stay away from. So i had a treat on Friday and had fish and chips for my dinner (tasted even better than i thought they would).
I made some sugar-free jelly up for when i get that sweet craving (thanks for the tip ;)).
I never thought just changing a few of my bad habits would bring me the results i've had in such a short time!!
Thanks everyone for the replies and the support and the useful info :D xx


Hippety Hop!

Hi Cooch, So how is it going?
Do hope you haven't given up already after such a good start.
Looking forward to reading your progress and I'm quite sure you can do it - ....:)

Well this is the first chance i've had to update as my internet has been down.
Weighed in last week and i've lost nothing :sigh:
On the bright side (which is what i'm looking at lol) I haven't put on!!
I struggled last week and admit I gave in to my struggles more than I should have done which in my mind has resulted in the no weight loss.
I'm not taking this as a bad thing, i'm going to use it as a positive to help me get through any mind struggles i'll face this week. I now know that i cant give in and i need to stay strong and stay away from the biscuits lol
Hopefully next week will give me a weight loss after my little wobble this week :)

Had a sneeky mid-week weigh today and another 3lb down :D :D :D
So pleased!!!
Actually think I've noticed a difference in the mirror this morning too, I just seem to look a little bit smaller all over really.
Another brilliant positive thought for me to keep pushing and fighting the flab :D
I'll update over the weekend after official weekly way in which I'm really looking forward to lol x
