**My big mini goal**

My housemate's Christmas work party is on December 14th and he has invited me as his guest! I want to look fab :) So I hope to lose a pound a week until then. Game on!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~My fastbreak goals~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Drink 8 8oz cups of water a day
Track calories burned
Write in a journal

~~Me and my weight~~

I have put on a stone since the age of 18. I lost all my previous teenage weight through joining Slimming World and mainly eating myself through 'Green Days'. As soon as school fn inished however, I went to University and the weight piled on.

Since graduating I have been trying for a loooong time to lose this weight. It is hard to lose it when people keep telling me that I look 'fine' and are therefore not really supportive of my goal. I have been constantly yo-yo dieting since the age of 18 and I need to get buckled down, sorted out and back to 9 stone! I know myself that I'm not overweight but I am not comfortable with this extra baggage: I want to look 'amazing' not 'fine'.

~~How can I change myself?~~

Losing weight and maintaining involves a complete lifestyle change and all year I just haven't been in the right frame of mind for that but I'm determind to reach my goal by the end of December for a new me in 2008 :)

Plan! If I can look at my social calender, I can spot where I might slip and plan for that.

~~My Nutrition~~

I cannot praise Slimming World enough for their diet plan. You eat what you want, how much you want, when you want. It is all based on healthy eating - a fab way to live I say! They have a website:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~I'm a Portion Distortioner~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

- lifetime member of the Clean Plate Club
- continue to eat beyond the point where I'm not hungry anymore
- don't feel I've eaten until I'm stuffed

What can I do about it?

- Use a smaller plate
- Eat more slowly
- Do something different with my friends rather than eating
- Read articles on portion control

~~My exercise~~

I'm attempting aerobics exercise dvds at home for now, as I am quite simply scared of the gym hehe.

    How does chocolate muffin for snack and chocolate cake with chocolate custard for lunch sound? Coz that's only what I've gone and done today! I know, I know...absolutely disgusting behaviour, but what can I say, I'm a chocoholic and fancied it! I haven't weighed myself in weeks either. I also have been drinking lots of alcohol which I'm sure will do wonders for this supposed "diet"....why do I have no willpower!?!?
    Sorry to hear about the bad week and slight gain but me and you both know we can do this!! Tomorrow I'm going to be a good girl and really work my ass off in my workout!! Hope you are getting yourself back on track now? You can do this!

    I've slipped some too, but the great part is, that we've got wonderful support on Spark, to help us get right back on track even with a few slips.
    I'm glad to see that Emily has been so supportive of you and helping you get back to where you want to be.
    Good luck this week, and remember to just take it one step at a time (it's way easier than trying to leap forward!)

    Keep me posted on how you're doing! (And Happy *late* Birthday!)

    Great job so far, and good luck!

    Hey, just thought I'd stop by and see how you're doing, and I see you're doing great! Keep at it and you'll be at your goal weight in no time at all! :)
    Take care,

    I think you're right... we do have very similar goals, and by looking at the other comments on your page, we probably both have just as much trouble sticking to it. I'll lose 4-5 pounds and feel really great and proud of myself, so I'll reward myself, intending to only have a small reward, but that turns into several days of rewarding, and then I'm back to where I started. I just got back from vacation and I'm looking forward to getting back on track! Hopefully we'll be able to encourage each other along the way and reach our goals together! Thanks for the comment!
