    i gained 3 pounds this week and i fell of the diet . Just looking for some encouragement and to know how other people struggle with cravings for junk food. I guess losing weight comes down to good organisation too.

    any thoughts x:cry:

    hey thats really helpful thanks i do power walking with my dog 4-5 times a week for around 20-30 mins and have recently joined the gym and have been going on the treadmill and cycling machine. I do slimming world diet as well.

    My current weight is 18.8 stones and i am 5 foot 6 female. Have lost 2 stones so far with slimming world.

    I have got the fitness bug at the minute. Just one question though should i lay off the weights?

    and you're right its a good idea to write everything down thanks.

    Well I'm doing a zero carb crash diet so I weigh myself naked every morning at 9am on electronic bathroom scales and Wii fit (mainly because Wii fit asks you to everyday so i got in the habit of it.).

    If you are doing a more sensible diet than mine you should weigh yourself weekly.

    Because mine is a dramatic crash diet i can lose up to 5lbs in 24 hours (not including morning to night body-water fluctuation which can be a further 2.2lbs on average)

    As for the weights...yes i would lay off them as they will add to your total weight....muscle weighs more than fat. (I'm doing it to kill 2 birds with one stone and I'm mainly doing this to lose BF% and not really weight)

    However when I'm doing stepping and jogging on Wii fit i hold weights as they add resistance and make me sweat more.

    Start Weight:
    11st0lb
    Current Weight:
    9st4lb
    Lost(%):
    1st10lb(15.58%)
    Diet:
    Clean eating (no processed food)
    I would say DON'T lay off the weights...as although you might weigh heavier when you tone up and put on lean mass, your clothes will still get looser and the tape measure will tell you that you are leaning up...and once a week is ample weighing in...daily even for crash dieting I think is verging on the obsessive (I am recovering from eating disorders and I think I can safely say this from experience)...I found that weight training helped me get the body I wanted faster than just doing cardio...
