avg lbs to lose per week: 1.5

Now, I expect that to slow down considerably next week (I hope so anyway!) and I expect that's from the excesses of Christmas as I started this on Boxing Day. But i'm now up and running which is the main part...

Good luck everyone as I know most of you will be starting this today. I think posting on a public forum will really give me a good push to get this done.

Dene
that's a wonderful start- well done!

Well done. I'll be more than happy to lose 1lb per week on a regular basis once everything starts levelling out. I figure that's a healthy amount to lose.

How many weeks do you have to your holiday?

we have 31 weeks tomorrow,can't wait.
it's our longest trip yet,17 nights,and also probably our last for a while
as I'm no longer working,dd wants to go abroad with uni and our little house could use some tlc! so it's extra important to shift flabby bits.

Also 31 weeks for us :-)

Main reason I need to shift the lbs is that this will be our first holiday for 9 years without taking a pushchair so I'm fully expecting to be one of those 'rucksack dads' carrying around everyone's junk all day :-) need to get fit for that...

I finally weighed myself, and only put on a pound over Christmas Was planning to finally start using the rowing machine we bought months ago when i got home from work today, but the flu seems to have finally caught me so exercise will have to wait a little longer lol

Also, thinking of changing my weight loss target because if I lose another 25lbs like I originally wanted to then I would be just over 9st, which might be a bit too low considering I'm 5'8

I'm joining in! We go in just over 17 weeks so I have set a target of 1lb a week. I would like to loose about 1 1/2 stone in total but I thought that was a bit optimistic in the time I have left.
On day two my will power is holding up, not sure how long it will last... .

Hope you don't ind but can i join please. I found the last time i did this it was a big help.

Well in 2011 i had a big dieting year and lost over 54lbs. Unfortunatley last year i have put some of it back on due to an operation on my abdomen which meant i couldnt exercise but kept on eating

So I am starting the diet again this week and need to loose 28lbs. I'm not going to WDW until next year but I am going on a special weekend in May so may goal is for the beginning of May.

My weigh in day will be Friday.

Thought I'd share something that I came across on Tumblr. If you're one of those people who knows that you're losing weight but you can't see it, then take a photo of yourself as you are now, then every 2-3 weeks take another one in the same pose and you'll be able to see the difference and feel much better about your weightloss

Ok so I started this thread way back full of good intentions! It worked, I lost a bit of weight but (as my yo yo dieting goes) I put it back on again. So, New Year, new beginnings. We have had a crazy house of sickness over the past 7 days, dd, ds and dh!

But, I start in the morning. I have planned meals all week and I only have 30 weeks to go until D Day! My intention is to weigh in on Fridays as we leave on a Friday so this will be a slightly curtailed week. To get to my overall goal I need to lose 3 stone and 10 pounds or 52 pounds!!! A bit of a big ask in 30 weeks but 45 would be wonderful, a clean 1.5 pounds per week!

I help out at a weight watchers class so will be back on it ASAP. I know we have quite a few lovely ladies and gents on here who are at various stages of their weight loss journey and I wish you all luck and look forward to hearing about you shrinking steadily over the next few weeks and months!

Weeks to D day: 30
Pounds to lose: 52

BRING IT ON!!!

There are a few weight loss blogs on tumblr where people post before, during and after photos over a few months and the difference in some of them is insane. I think the fact that it's people posting photos of themselves rather than a weight loss ad posting an after picture of a person who probably isn't the one in the before is quite encouraging

This is just one of them, there are loads more:
