    I have lost 22lbs (1 and 1/2 stone),this is from going to slimming world
    Been going to sw on and off since 2006 when I lost 2 stone then got depression and piled on 5 stone,joined a new group last april but really struggled before xmas due to work and depression, but I changed a few things in my personal life that has almost got rid of the depression (still have my down days) and this helps hugely with my weight loss, I have also stopped drinking caffeine as this was causing my sleep pattern to be awful, I cannot believe the difference it has made I've got 6lb to lose to get to my 2 stone loss mark, then only another couple of stone to get to my target weight


    Sorry huge pic

    Nov 2012 was the biggest I have ever been I lost half a stone by myself before joining slimming world and the current pic is me now as I said still got a few more stone to go but getting there slowly

    Looking great Vix!!

    I'm trying so hard not to give up, worked my arse off the past few months and only managed 11lb off but inches as well so it was ok. The weekend before my birthday my sister took me out so I had a meal out and some wine, calculated I ate at maintenance, ate at a deficit the rest of the weekend and the following week except for tue and wed (went over most likely), friday eve I drank a fair bit so over then and probably around maintenance sat, back on it since sunday. So a few naughty days but mainly maintaining and then right back on it and what happens? I've gained a STONE.

    I've noticed this since January, I can lose ok eating at a deficit but I have one day where I'm not and all hell breaks loose, I don't just gain a lb or 2 or see it go on then fall off like water weight, I gain 4-7lb and have to fight to lose it again, it's INSANE. I know I've not eaten 5000cals a day for the past 3 weeks because that's what I'd have to do to gain like that. I f**king hate my body sometimes and just want to give up. *cries and stamps feet*

    It was so effing easy on old WW, weight fell off me all the time but I have to remember that I hardly dropped inches (lost a load of muscle and ended up skinny-fat) so swings and roundabouts. Not to mention I'm over my deficit a bit, lots of protein and fillings foods but I'm hungry. *sigh*

    ah hun that's shit! Have you tried following the old WW plan whilst doing your exercise stuff? Or SW or something? I tried CC fora while and seriously for about 4 weeks before starting SW and even though mathematically I was doing everything well I was barely losing which was SO demotivating. All I can really add is that you've been doing so so so well with working out and keeping it up, I really hope this doesn't demotivate you too much *hugs*



    --

    I've been doing pretty well with SW and up until last week I'd lost 17.5lbs / 1st 3.5lbs but I'm dreading today's weigh in after being at nicks for nearly a week, despite his mum and dad always commenting on his/our weight and telling us we need to lose weight etc and knowing I was doing SW so I brought my books and recipes down with me so we could cook on-plan meals but no, all we've been given has been way way way off the mark, argh!! So annoyed and sooo dreading going to class tonight

    No not tried doing WW PPs cos it's a nightmare trying to find the info online etc and it's not supported anymore and tbh I love CC it works for me fine, I was losing 1lb a week for nearly 3 months then it went nuts. I also have to admit that on WW/SW I went hungry if I wanted a drink or a night out so it's not great in the long run for me nor is it sustainable.

    However we've discovered what it is anyway tons of water retention, my feet esp my left one is like an effing balloon, even my hands and fingers have puffed up. It's these damn tablets so that's me tapering off them, not to mention I'm hungry a lot on them as well which is no good for someone like me and in my situation. Booked in with GP.

    Well done Philly!

    Where do you go running? Once I have my insoles I want to do Zombies Run! it's like a C25K but with a Zombie story lol! There's a big field near me so I think I'll start out on there.

    Same for any runners, where do you run? Roads, parks, fields, tracks? What do you like/prefer and why?

    I run down past my parents as it leads to country roads and fields, I much prefer there as I can motivate myself more because I dont worry about people seeing me! Sounds stupid but yeh. I much prefer home comforts haha

    I run, I am very lucky in that there's a lovely park called Jesmond Dene about 5 mins away from my house. It has gravel and dirty pathways that snake all the way through the park and go on for miles. It's a really popular area for dog walkers and runners, so I never feel self conscious there because there's always someone else on a run/jogging. It's a lovely place, when you're there it doesn't feel like you're in the middle of Newcastle because it's so quiet. I find it very calming to run next to the river, too.

    Plus, I am very clumsy and I know if I tried to run on the streets I would trip over paving stones or something, and I'd be very self conscious about running with people in cars going past, potentially being seen by people I know, etc.

    How lovely!! And yes I worry about street running, I think I'd feel rather conscious too, especially being obese. I see loads of street runners near me but they're all super fit :/
