Hi everyone,
I got an email reminder, and realized I have not even used this site since signing in! I want to lose the weight I have put on but have not been motivated to START. Any tips.... thanks!

Get into your closet and find something that you really like that you can't get into or that you can get into but is too tight to fit right. That always motivates me. I fortunately kept a pair of jeans in a size 7 for well over a decade. They are way outta date and I wouldn't dare wear them but they do serve as a good motivator!

Good luck!

I'm with you. Registered a long time ago, but life got in the way. I started actually dieting 10 days ago and now I'm ready to really use the site.

I successfully lost 40kgs from 2006-2007 and started steadily gaining again.Evil or Very Mad Dropped clothing size from a 46 to a 36 and I'll be damned if I'm going to go back there again.

Basically followed the low GI and low fat combo, which I pretty much devised on my own and for motivation joined Weigh Less (similar to WW).

Just started detoxing for a week yesterday and I intend to keep at it, as I certainly know the benefits of weightloss. I was previously diabetic and delivered two micro-premi babies during this time and that spurred me on to give my boys a chance of having their mom around for a longer time....

It's difficult, but achievable....

Have you tried the cauliflower recipes like cauliflower rice or twice baked cauliflower (all gooey with sour cream, cheese and bacon bits)?

Stop watching the scales: as per my earlier post "Why the Scales Lie" Make it a lifestyle change, not a 'diet' to lose for now.

WHY THE SCALES LIE
Thank you Mummydee. I'm so very glad I read this when I'm at a low point in terms of motivation. I will read this often in order to remind myself of the tremendous work I'm doing. Thank you ...
