Yes best to miss weeks like that OM, although I do count them as it gives me some idea of normal fluctuations and when I won't need to worry when I start to maintain.

Lost 2lb last week, just getting back into the diet as I took a few weeks off for various reasons.

So nose to the grind stone again, and just heading out to walk some of my lunch off I think !

No one can actually tell you what to eat, that has to be your choices, but loads of fizzy drinks won't be helping so you may just need to stop drinking those and you may then see weight come off quite naturally.

I've been eating fruit and soup pretty much exclusively for the last 6/7 weeks after the weight piled on. I also have a bit of Quorn as a protein snack.

The weight has fallen off. I can do my belt up two extra notches already.

I think I can officially retire from this thread. I'm now a comfy 34 inch waist, down from a tight 42 inch waistline, I've dropped over 3 stone and I'm only a stone overweight now (but don't really look it). I've also packed on a bit of muscle as a bonus.

Didn't really diet other than a few minor changes, mostly quitting full fat soft drinks (I drank over 600 calories a day in those). But the rest has been exercise, a lot of exercise. 3 times a week running, 3 times a week weights and strength training. It works. I'd have dropped the weight quicker if I'd dieted too but it's taken 11 months to drop the weight so it's been a nice, sensible weight loss I think.

Hoping to be in 32-inch trousers by Christmas but then I'm done. I'll still do the exercise, but maybe less of it Good luck to those still working at this, it's worth it.

As someone already mentioned, just quit the fizzy drinks and you'll naturally lose the weight. There's over 100 calories in a can of coke which is a lot, especially if you drink a couple of cans a day. I used to drink 4-5 cans a day which is around 600 calories. Removing that means I'd naturally lose 1 lb a week in weight (or a stone every 3 months). You WILL get cravings though, quitting sugar is pretty difficult

With the exercise I am doing at work, now down to 104.7 kilos. Only 5 kilos to my target weight, might make it before New Year. Still eating what I like, but burning it all off which is a massive bonus.

Been getting a few compliments on it as well from some of the females at work as well, one said I looked so much fitter than when I started in October.

Rook, Acado and Orangemaid that's great news about weight loss.

Here, I've stalled again and this time in a big way. I've actually put on weight (only a couple of pounds though). It hasn't been helped that I was poorly for about a month and didn't have the energy to do any exercise other than any walking I did day to day. I was very tempted this morning to give in completely and join the 2014 thread or sew my mouth shut or something but think I'll just carry on as I am until the end of the year and hope that I don't put any more weight on.

Been making friends with the exercise bike this past week and going well so far. I do approx 40 mins a session and am trying to use it as an incentive to do better each time as it tells me distance and calories. Also, thought the bike would be better than my attempts at 'jogging' which never really did very well.

Hope everyone is ok.

Don't give in. A couple of pounds is nothing, your body will fluctuate in weight during the day and during the week naturally anyway.

If you want that change in your life then you have to fight for it and fight through the days where you struggle. There were times during this year where I've really wanted to quit. Heck, every time I pass Millies Cookies I want to quit There were days when I'm see no progress and days when I'd discover I'd put weight on. But looking back now I'm glad I kept going.

It's all about habit, not calorie counting or daily weigh ins. Small changes make huge differences over time. It's taken me a year to lose 3 stone, some people would consider that a long time but it's worked. I haven't had to give up many of the foods I like, it's all been small changes.

Trust me (a random stranger on the internet is always trustworthy ), you'll kick yourself if you give in. Just picture yourself in 12 months with everyone saying "Wow, don't you look different" (it gets annoying after a while). Isn't that worth the effort?

Congratulations to everyone who has lost weight. Sarah, we're here for you. It seems hard at the time, but so much better in hindsight.

As for myself, I'm still weighing in at exactly at my target weight. Maintenance seems to get easier over time, it's almost as if my body has become used to its current weight and goes there more or less automatically.

It may help that I've been doing plenty of exercise recently. Have already cycled about 25km today, and swum 1km. Going out for a family cycle ride later on.

Good evening all.
Ive not posted on, or read, this thread before.
I just bought my daughter a juicer for Christmas and last night gave it a trial run (rather than face disappointment on the day - and, don't worry, I cleaned it!).
I was very impressed.
Juice 1 - 2 apples as they were, 2 carrots (topped)
Juice 2 - 2 apples and a lemon, unpeeled.

Both juices were delicious.

Has anyone got or use a juicer as part of a health/weight loss plan?

Did he substitute juice for solids?
That's not my intention.
What were the "problems - weight gain or digestion?

We were both trying to lose weight he tried for a while juicing diet, mostly vegetables with a little fruit for flavour. He lost and incredible amount quite fast, but as soon as he went back onto solids it started creeping back on.

Now he has a juice in the morning and eats low cal the rest of the day which is working.

Yep, I've eaten loads today. But, I didn't have a tea to compensate a bit for all the chocolate and other stuff eaten today. I'm glad I don't have to calculate how many calories Christmas dinner was (at lunchtime), some things are best not known.
