So I joined here just after Jan, full of good intentions... went to the way side!

So here I am 14stone 5lbs... and so pee'ed off with myself over it! I was 11 stone 4lbs this time last year.... So this is it, once and for all! No more stupid targets of losing large amounts quickly, I need to focus on learning to eat better, portion size and cut back on the alcohol and up the exercise... sounds simple doesn't it really... but why is it so hard!

Hey ho... onwards and downwards!

I agree with nomorejellybeans, you are back!!

I had to give up drinking and eating out for a while to dedicate myself to myself. I never have just one beer or one glass of wine so I can't be trusted with it anymore. Someday though!

I started setting my alarm on my phone for exercise. As in, there has to be time in my day to do it and I am going to get it done!

Small changes add up quick. Don't be hard on yourself, we have all been there and done that. Now is the time to get back on track and come to 3FC for support!

Good luck!! :)

Thank you both, I need to learn to maintain... not gain weight like crazy!

Day 3 of the diet, first day of sticking to it 100% but have a day out at the races Sat with a 3 course meal... meh... that's not going to help my diet :(

Don't forget that you're allowed to treat yourself. the main thing to treating yourself or having a "cheat" meal is to make sure it's only that one meal, and not feel guilty about it. I find that once I've stopped guilty from it it has helped to improve my diet once I've gone back on the wagon.
Good luck with everything! xx

Am in the same situation was loosing weight last year, after my holiday in May it went down hill. I like the idea of a alarm to remind me to exercise, thanks elvislover324.

This! Guilt is no part of a healthy diet. You're doing this to be good to yourself more than anything. If you start getting full during a meal out, try to just... stop. Why make yourself uncomfortable? Just enjoy your food and get back to your plan, no guilt, and the opportunity to enjoy meals out will come round again before you know it :)

Congrats on making the decision! I hope it goes really well for you :)

I too have gone off a little this week.
Have sat down and thought about going to see my gp but I know the drill and what they will say. I looked on the NHS choices site and it confirmed I'm obese.
I've also realised that all the foods i eat far too much of begin with the letter C. CHOCOLATE,COLA,CAKE,CRISPS,CHINESE FOOD. How bizarre is that?
So from tomorrow I'm taking nhs advice and eating no more than 1400 cals a day. Have also joined my fitness pal to help count them. Weigh in Friday am.
15 weeks till 40. BRING IT ON!!!!!!!:dancer:

I find it's easy to have good intentions and know exactly what you need to do, but so much harder to actually put the changes into place!

Starting today, I will focus on drinking my water (which I often let slip!) A small change is better than none!

I was pretty bad yesterday but hey ho, been good today so hopefully the scales will be kind tomorrow morning, we will see!

I know exactly what I need to do to lose weight.... I just struggle when I stop doing that and have to maintain, its so gutting to see the scales rise so quickly and so easily after all the hard work to lose the weight, but cant dwell on it I suppose, just gotta keep sticking at it and try and teach myself to eat less generally.

Well despite Saturday being bad I still managed to lose 2.5lb and I've been using actiderm wraps, which help tighten skin and ive lost 1.5 inches off of my waist! Took measurements in three different places around my stomach and lost 1.5 inches off of each point!

Have had a great week on the diet, no cheating, sticking to my calorie limit 100%, been doing a bit of light exercise for 20 mins a day.

I have a bad habit of over weighing myself, but snuck a look on the scales this morning and I am down to 13 stone 11lbs, so glad to be out of the 14s again and it feels good to be chasing the 12's.... only 12 evil little pounds to go lol.

Im going on holiday in Easter so I am hoping that I can get into the 12's by then, its 7 weeks away so fingers crossed I can manage that.

I never punish myself over having a treat. I would end up being so fed up if I did. I know that I need to treat myself sometimes, if I didn't I would probably end up going mad and eating my bodyweight in chocolate. I just think to myself that I'm allowed a treat maybe once a week, and then sometimes will do an extra long workout or extra long walk the next day. I always factor my treats into my calorie intake as well.

@ lolloveschocolate The best thing I ever did was give up pepsi max! I was truly addicted last year, had at least 2-3 cans a day and last Pancake day I decided to give up, for the economic and health reasons and haven't touched a drop since. Now the thought of it makes me feel quite sick. It was truly the best thing I ever did. The first week or so was difficult but I am so glad I did it!
