    I don't want to have all the excess baggage anymore... I want to be comfy this coming summer (Nov - Mar) and not feel like "5 lbs of flour in a 2 lb bag"!!! :D :D :D :D
    Anyone fancy joinging in? We don't have to enclose our weight, but could come and "weigh-in" once a week..... perhaps give each other some support?

    I'm aiming for a lb a week. Keeping it "do-able"!! :wink:

    Welcome Layla!!
    I started today too...
    bran plus milk for brekkie
    pitta bread and salad for lunch
    fat free homemade soup and bread for dinner
    fruit for snacking

    'cause i'm bf'ing, I'm suppose to have more calories.
    I really need to cut down on the bread - my downfall!!!
    We'll see who else is interested, but in meantime, I'll see you here next thursday for weight again.
    Well done - I're going to get back into our old clothes again..... yippeeeee

    I'm up fir it too but am a bit worried about not eating properly. Have always had an issue with diet, am basically rubbish at knowing what is good and what isn't (obviously I know 3 mars bars a day like I am currently getting through is not helping me) but especially now I am breast feeding I don't know what I should be doing. Any tips??

    Need to stop eating bread and pasta - crave carbs so much at the moment.

    Hi Beanie...
    I know what you mean about the carbs.
    I don't know what happened since Oscar was born, but I have become addicted to sugar ie. biscuits especially. Otherwise, I'm not eating that much, because by the time I've fed everyone else in the house, Oscar is crying for his feed so I don't get to eat my own until late in the evening or never!!

    Anyway, some tips here might help...
    Dry fry mince, instead of using oil.
    Grate cheese - you use less and it covers the sandwich nicely.
    Baxters soup for when you're really starving.
    Limit the butter that goes on the sandwich
    Don't eat DH's leftovers!!! :D
    Ditch the sweeties and replace with fruit.

    Hope it helps. It's a start at least :D :wink:
    Lets keep it up girls - we can be lighter next week - not heavier!!!
    Ching ching :wink:

    I lost three pounds last week, and have put it up again because I caved over the weekend. Isn't it weird how a quarter pound of chocolate can put three pounds on you?

    Aiming for a stone gone by easter but may have to compromise...

    i posted on here the other night asking everyone if they knew any diets that work.

    I am really up for this, it also gives you an incentive if you have other people following your progess.

    I weigh 11.5 stone and i want to get to 9.5 stone, my pre pre pregnancy weight (before Amy!!)

    Nice one Emilia

    How can we possibly fail with all the support!!!! :D :D
    Let's weigh ourselves, try and eat well and making healthier choices.
    Let's be aware of the "obvious crap" that we stuff in our "cake holes" and leave them well alone!! TUNNOCKS TEA CAKES..... uhmmmm, NO!!!!!!!!
    Let's just keep it at a pound a week - an more than that is just a "Brucie Bonus"

    Let's go girls.... keep posting ideas and support!!!!! :D :D :D
    I'm feeling thinner just thinking about it!! Nutter, I know!!!

    im so bad!

    yesterday i started on this new healthy eating lark

    my plan is...

    cereal for breakfast and 1 bit of toast
    cereal or soup for lunch
    sensible dinner
    fruit and go ahead bars for snacks

    i did all that but was craving for choccy, which is strange coz i dont eat much anyway.

    i went to morrisions to get a few bits and while at teh check out i saw cream eggs, they started teaseing me i swear!! so i had to have one.

    when i got outside the shop, i shoved the whole thing in my mouth, anyone would think i hadnt eaten for days lol

    i had to eat it before i got back home, and even went as far as to hide the reciept so Jase didnt know i cheated lol

    going to try to be good today!
