    I will continue with the challenge. I have lost 10 kgs since joining a gym, and healthy eating plan at the beginning of this year. I have set my next goal to another 10 kgs, and then I will see how I feel. so starting from last weigh-in . im 72.5 kgs, I don't know what I will be in 10 weeks, perhaps I can make a goal of 5 kgs less. ?? marie.

    Yay new thread.

    For me

    SW -69kg
    CW- 65kg
    GW - 60kg
    UGW - 55kg

    Note I only started 4 weeks ago so consistently losing 1kg a week. Very happy with that!

    I might reach my ultimate goal weight by Xmas then!

    Good luck everyone.

    I love hearing what others are eating too if anyone wants to share?

    Count me in. I halfheartedly followed the last challenge thread, but I am ready to commit properly now. The first thing I need to do is quit my caffeine/sugar treats. It's always my downfall because I dread the headaches and general feeling terrible that comes with it. I will weigh in tomorrow.

    hi sajimum, I have the opposite effect. when I eat ice cream or cream, or other generally speaking "yummy" stuff, I feel so sick for hours later. perhaps you can just begin by strictly limiting your caffeine/sugar , rather than trying to quit completely. marie

    I wish I felt terrible after eating sugar - that would make being healthy much easier! I really struggle when giving up caffeine and sugar and feel really terrible for a few days. I feel sorry for DH and the kids who have to deal with cranky mum. I don't plan on giving up sugar completely though - just the extra snacks (e.g. chocolate, energy drinks) that I know are terrible for me!

    I'm a big believer in not denying yourself any food u enjoy.

    Just limit it and watch ur portions. I personally am really strict with my eating during the week and relax a bit on the weekend and allow treats.

    I lost 19kg 2.5 years ago and my biggest tip is it has to be a lifestyle change, not a diet. If u don't allow yourself the things u enjoy you end up getting bored then bingeing or plain giving up. It has to be sustainable long term

    Just suggestion....why don't u allow itself say a chocolate bar and a energy drink every weekend as a reward?

    That way u wont feel like ur missing out and will look forward to it each week?

    This is probably a good idea in the long run. I do find that it makes the cravings come back each time I 'give in' though. If I let myself have some (especially energy drinks) then I spend the next 3-4 days really struggling again. I think I might aim for none over the first 3-4 weeks and then slowly allow some back in. You are definitely right though - I don't want to feel deprived, as I want to sustain a healthy lifestyle long term.
