Default The girl in the mirror

I saw my relection in a full length mirror for the first time for a while yesterday. I don't have a full length mirror at home - just face ones and one over the sink, so I've been able to kid myself that I look sort of okay, even though I know I am carrying a bit of extra weight.

I only have like 15lbs to lose, which might not seem a lot to some of you on here, but as I have a very small frame it looks terrible.

I keep on meaning to lose weigh and then something comes along and gets in the way....like my period, which makes me ravenous for chocolate and cakes and things. Also, my friends are constantly having social events centred round food....it seems that in your mid twentys the thing to do is to go to dinner at folks houses.

I saw an old friend from uni the other day, we used to swap clothes as we were the same size, and now she's so much thinner than me. Just seeing her really bought it home to me.

How do I make myself lose these 15lbs though?

Hi Helen...welcome to 3FC. I think this would be an excellent post for the featherweights forum since you don't have a significant amount of weight to loose in the scheme of things. But I know, to you, it IS significant! I'm sorry you are struggling with these 15 pounds. I know the last pounds are the hardest and most frustrating to lose! And all I can say is that as you get older, it will get harder. So kudos to you for doing something about it now.

Instead of indulging in cake during TOM, how about trying something like low fat chocolate pudding? Start making substitutes here and there. And it's OK to RSVP no occassionally for these dinners. Or perhaps make an appearance after dinner is completed? Remove some of those temptations out of your life.

You will start seeing the results. It won't be overnight but it will happen!

1/4/15: Restarting my journey exactly 4 years from when I first started in January 2011. Reached my goal weight in 2012 and regained half of it back.

I never should have left 3FC!

i have learned there is always "something" around the corner that gets in the way. So instead of waiting for your schedule to be clear (ya right, LOL) just begin. Each event, you will find a strategy to get through it. Afterall, if you can't coordinate life's events the weight will just come back on, right? You can do this, just stop waiting for the perfect time ~fm
