  • good luck, I'm on a diet too, not too troubled with hunger, but if I get bored the temptation to snack is getting to be a pain

  • Quote from Roach

    In the words of Garfield, Diet is Die with a T



    no having to shop in the fat section of shops is worse, but not for much longer

  • i have lost 6 and a half stone, dieting is not the way to go. I wrote down everything that I put in my mouth (keep it clean!!!) even water and juice and stuff, that kept me focused. I still ate, pizza and chocolate cake and chips, no need for deprivation, just compensate the next day.......

    I feel like I've wandered onto the set of Oprah. :eek:

  • Started dieting about 3 weeks ago. Down from 12 stone 13 to 12 stone 1 (target weight is 12 on the dot but I am now so used to being hungry I might go the whole hog (lol) and drop to 11 and a half :D

    Because I have lost so much weight, people think it is ok to comment on it all the time, but after a while it just makes you realise that that was all they saw, my size.:( its nice for friends to encourage you, but when it gets to be the only thing people say to you anymore, it gets a bit mundane.

  • If I went on a diet I'd waste away! I'm only 8 stone 2 and I just can't put weight on, no matter how much I eat

    *prepares himself for all the hate mail hes about to recieve :whistle: *

    I have never understood why people seem to think its ok to comment on someones weight if they are thin but would never dream of commenting on if they were overweight.
    When I was really ill in December I went down to just over 7st and everywhere I went i got comments on my weight, even from strangers. It was horrible. I didn't need telling that i looked unhealthy!


    Good luck on your diets everyone. I could never do it! I love food wayy too much

    And also, it's consider ok to take the piss out of blokes for being fat, but not women.

    If only that were true. In this superficial word that we live in, there is no gender specific, not in my experience. And what really pisses me off, is that I have lost a 3rd of my body weight and people still refer to me as "cuddly", like its a term of endearment.:mad:
