    Let's try and lose a stone (14lb) (6kg) by Halloween. It's 12 weeks to halloween so its very do-able!!

    Who is up for the challenge? I need to lose weight for my health and appearance! I hope people will join in here and we all know how the psych medications can pile on the pounds.

    C'mon let's do this!! :greatidea:

    Halloween is doable 2-3 lbs/week is a safe way to lose weight but it is difficult. I just joined Weight watchers so I will be hungry but motivated.

    Start to walk an hour in the morning. Carbs in the morning. Porridge with blueberries. Green tea to help the metabolism change. Small portion of food in small plate. Protein at night. A walk at night for an hour. Make sure you have proper trainers for walking.

    Petal focus yourself and ignore any horrible comments from anyone.

    I am in! 14lbs off (at least) by Halloween. I should have a shiny new kitchen to play with by the end of this week so no excuses at all!

    Pepsi Max has become my new drink of choice, I know water is better but I have a thing for fizzy drinks.
    14lbs by halloween. I can so do this. I gave up smoking, gave up xanax, I can do anything, as they say the world is your oyster.
    I have a sprained foot so I cannot exercise right now but I can change my eating habits.

    three weeks in and I have lost 3.5 pounds. But it agonizing because I like food plus snacking which is why I'm fat. How has anyone else done? BTW I joined Weight Watchers because I need the discipline, meager that it is.

    Couldn't get into the new group.
    Anyway I probably won't make 14 lbs by Halloween. I am down 6 lbs but Halloween is in two weeks.
    Oh well it was a good motive to do this.
