    I started my diet on thursday by joining Slimmingworld ( other slimming clubs are available )..

    so far I like it.. I can eat as much as I want of certain foods ( vegies, taters, lean meat / poultry etc ) and apparently "the more you eat the more you loose".. .. something about metabolism etc..

    I didn't eat much and always the wrong stuff ( breaded chicken things, pizza, chips etc.. ).

    anyway, I expect the usual glut of insults from the likes of DM etc when they read the next line but I thought I'd plot my progress here in case any of you are interested..

    Start wieght: 33st 5.5lbs... :eek: :rolleyes:
    ( yeah I thought the same when I saw it on the scales.. thought I was around the 29st mark.. :evil: )

    so there you have it.. bring on the "Y.F.B." style remarks if you want.. I'm used to them..

    Good luck to you CJ. Plenty of support from me and I hope everyone else.

    What is your target weight?

    I'd like to get down to around 14st.
    yes I know that's a loss of more than half my weight, and might seem a lot to some of you, but at 6 foot 4 I don't think it will be that bad..

    there's one woman in the group who's lost 15st already.. ..

    Best of luck mate
    just remember that when you reach your target weight don't slip back
    to old habits.
    Keep the healthy eating up and you wont look back.
    I lost 6 stone and have never felt better, but its a struggle to keep to a healthy and low fat diet but I will to enable me to hopefully see grandchildren. :D

    The best diet I've known is the 'rotted tooth' diet, you get a bad tooth, you can't eat, and loose weight dramatically!

    1st experience of this, is you know boiled potatoes in a tin? No in Germany they are RAW...so after a few minutes of boiling, and biting into one..crunch..tooth gone. I'm not going to go to a German dentist after THAT film 'Is it safe?'..

    So eating soup, means weight loss.

    Back in the UK, the tooth was pulled, so eating anything sharp, hurts, so less food consumption = more weight loss.

    So got down from 14 stone to 11 stone. Due to dental issues.

    it was the doctors that refered me and I'm not paying for the first 12 weeks.. ( vouchers.. hey if the smokers get free patches then why shouldn't the fatties get free vouchers.. :) )
    not on any meds, except for some stuff that the doc gave me for indigestion a month ago, and I've finished those ( laperazomol or something.. indigestion was the reason I went when he refered me.. )

    as it happens my aunt and uncle were refered a few months ago and it's working well for them so that's why I chose slimming world over W.W.

    my parents were also refered at roughly the same time so we all started the same time last thursday. A little support from the family..

    This subject has always amazed me.
    'Fatness' in general i mean.

    "Thyroid problem"............ ..........Nope you eat too much.
    "I dont eat much really".........Yes you do.
    "It's my metabolism"...................Nope.

    Some years ago my ex sister in law tried to justify her fatness BUT was munching a family sized pork pie at the time. :eek: Madness. :rolleyes:
    When helping her move house, there were none less than 10 empty 'manor house' fruit cake boxes under her bed FFS :eek: :rolleyes:
    When will fat people own up to the fact they eat too much. Simple as that.

    Show me the fat person in the concentration camps during ww2.????

    This is certainly not a pop at you coljack.
    I do genuinely wish you all the best with the diet and hope it works out for you.

    I have to break my silence here Col, did you ever wonder if being so big had a bearing on your recent unemployment? If I was an employer I'm afraid I'd have to seriously ask myself if the interviewee could not manage their own weight how could they manage their time as my employee etc? This is not just a reflection of my own personal attitude but a reflection of society as a whole.
