Diet Or Not To Diet?

Well, I am over weight, by about 1 stone (or just over if I am totally honest!) and have put on nearly 2 stone since my wedding last year (although I did have to 'seriously' diet to fit into the wedding dress I chose!) Ideally, I would like to loose just over 1 stone - making me a comfortable size 12-14, rather than a rather tight (and deluded) size 14 (hey, some clothes stretch as you put on weight!)I know size/stones aren't the be all and end all - if I was happy at the size and weight I am, I wouldnt be writing this blog! But, I am not happy, I know I have put on weight, and errr, I know the reason why (I quite simply love my food!)So, even though I have been on a diet since 1st January 2005 (and gained 7 pounds) I thought I might use this blog as my start in - well - dieting! So, from tomorrow onwards, I am on a diet, (seriously this time I shall have you know :) ) and will update you with any weight loss (if it actually ever happens - and if your interested!) so expect no blog entry about my weight loss until November 2015.xx

Diets don't work, well in my case. If I were to deny myself something I would want it all the time :rolleyes:

Around Christmas I got reading about the GI diet, not so much a diet more a change of the way you eat. More complex carbohydrates. I weaned myself onto Multigrain bread for toast in the morning and made sure I had at least Granary bread at lunchtime if not three bean soup. I found that I was no longer snacking and reaching for the chocolate all the time (until MiniLoo came on the scene and wrecked it all :lol: )

Worth a try, no counting points or starving yourself, just changing eating habits a bit :)

Ooo, whats the GI diet (I have heard about it, but this is the first time I would have done it)?

Is it thing the thing where you have to know what blood group you are, and apparently loose weight depending on that?

I have had enough of starvation diets (because thats what weight watchers, slimmers world and Snow-Raven's diet are) and quite simpley love my grub!

If I could eat and loose weight, that would be great....!

But yes, I hope to say I am over a stone lighter between now and chirstmas..

Try this link and fish around a bit for the 3 weeks? I think it ran for

The Times

I wouldn't personally follow it to the letter but it has some useful ideas of how to change your eating habits for the better :)

I think Tesco online also do a GI diet plan ... may be worth a look at tesco.com - also try ivillage.

Good luck!

I've put some weight on recently (7 pounds) and since I started running last week I've lost 2. I jog/run 2 miles a day and its pretty difficult for a fat lad who hasn't done much exercise. But I'm starting to feel fitter now.

I'm not sure about dieting myself, as I dont over eat (I'm fat cos I dont exercise as much as I should) but here's wishing you the best of luck.

Good point about the exercising Emerson. I'll walk to the TV in future to turn it over instead of using the remote control!
