I have started today and hope that i am going to find it fairly easy to do.:fingerscrossed:

    Hi Marie

    How has your day been?

    I'm sticking to under 1400 calories, but I plan my day around 1300. It's enough calories, and I don't feel hungry, I just need to make sure that I drink enough!

    Hi Carol,

    I am going with advice so as to lose my wieght for holidays as 1158 calories a day for the first week and then it drops 10 calories each week. I struggled yesterday and was completely starved. Problem is i have gone from a eat loads of free food slimming world diet to a calorie watch your portions diet. I so desperately want to lose this weight as the holiday is the first i have been on for 5 years and its cost an awful lot of money so i really want to make sure that i feel good about the way i look for when i go.

    The old saying eh!!! no pain, no gain!!!!

    Maybe you should up your calories a bit...if your feeling hungry. I tend to stick to under 1400 and exercise 3 times a week, this usually gives me around a 2lb loss which would take you to your goal of 30lb by September...although everyone's different and this could be because I'm heaver? I guess:eek:. My doctor said aiming for less than 1200 kcals a day is not good for your body but he is usually flicking through a book when trying to diagnose anything :eek: so I wouldn't trust everything he says LOL!:D
