**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.

    Hi Alice!

    Congrats on your loss of last week! I saw your blog about the Chinese food and it made me laugh, I get into the same mentality thinking, oh, I'll just eat this burger & fries because I'm going to want to sometimes, but oh wait, isn't there a reason I've been eating healthy all other days?!
    How are your DVD workouts going? I'm really interested in the renting service you're using, it sounds like a great idea, and I'd like to know how it's working for you!
    Well, here's to another week (and another pound lost!)! Hope it's a good one!

    The fitness DVD rental sounds like a great idea.
    I go to Jazzercise classes which are dance aerobics & strength training. I really like going to them, and it's nice whenever I miss a couple classes in a row, I'm welcomed back by the instructors & regulars... sometimes, I can even motivate my mom to go with me, which really makes me feel good!

    My plan to get back on track is to really sit down and do some planning. I have to figure out my meal plans, grocery lists & workout scheduling for the week to keep on track (and in my budget for food), because I'm so busy, running around like crazy. I've had a really busy October with my full-time job and work on the side, plus all of the regular activities, and of course, celebrating my birthday. I'm really looking forward to getting my focus back starting tomorrow, November 1st! I've already joined a couple of November challenges, so I'm really going to work hard to stick with those for their duration. Otherwise, it's just about setting small goals and doing some planning for me!
    Hope today and tomorrow and this week and November and.... etc. goes well for you!

    Hi Alice!
    It's good to hear from you again, and to see that you're back! I've been on and off track for a few weeks now too, and my birthday was this past weekend, so I fully fell out of line there. But as I'm sure you know, it's all about taking it one step at a time.
    I'm looking forward to this busy month to be over, and then I'm really going to get down and focus... I think what I really need to do is set some specific goals and set goal dates to achieve them, so I don't keep saying, "I'll do it tomorrow."
    Have you made a plan for getting back on track? If so, I'd love to hear your ideas which might help me out some!
    Just remember to take it one moment at a time, so you don't get overwhelmed.
