Not going well, but then its been cold and have been very hungry
It is so hard if you get hungry. I tell myself if I’m hungry and I do not eat then my body will take its requirements from somewhere else and so I will be losing weight

Then if you had done well for a few days give yourself a treat. If have some chilli choc penguins from hotel chocolat that I was given for Christmas and I will eat one of them as a treat for being good

Cold weather will certainly do that to you and we all have setbacks when it comes to dieting...I have put on weight since Decembers adventure so will be back to the diet with you soon.  ;)

@davina61   @LizK   @Jessica_K
Dear Davina, Liz, and Jessica:
I feel your pain ladies.....
Most obviously being hungry is not a good way to be if one is trying hard to lose weight. 
In the past when I been on diets and watched my food intake, I found that if was getting hungry before meal time that I would just drink a cup or two of coffee/tea/diet soda pop/water  etc....
That would take away the hunger "pains" for a while so later I could have a decent portion controlled balanced meal.

Being super-hungry when one is preparing food or ordering in a restaurant is usually not a good plan.... our eyes get bigger than our stomachs and/or we tend to eat excessively and eat the wrong things....   
....smaller plates, portion control and regular exercise seems to be a good combination for my body.

Good luck ladies.... I know what you are going through.   But my dear Davina, you love to cook and bake a lot much like I do, my freezer gets full before I can give it all away or invite guests to my home to entertain with a meal or treats.

Hugs, and more hugs,
Danielle

I have found a new way of losing weight. Digging a path to the house out of the snow
I have a large standing area for cars and a path meaning that the house is some 30m from the gate. Took about an hour of heavy shovelling to clear enough to walk to the door  ;D

The scales are yoyoing , got told I looked lovely last night all dressed up and when I said I needed to lose the stomach told I looked fine!!! Not so as the dress I was wearing used to be loose and I struggled to do zip up and its not from the extra on the girls either

@davina61
Dear Davina:  
While your scales can yoyo up and down, it is how you fit into your clothes that should shock you into submission!!! :)

For me, I have a favorite dress that I use as guide.   When it starts fitting somewhat tight, then I know that I have to knock off the treats and cookies and hit the treadmills at the Gym.

Lately however I have been very pleased that when I put the dress on, it zips up easily and is not tight fitting...
... that is a signal that now I can have my treats and cookies.   ;)

Wishing you well with your continuing diet plans...   

QUESTION.... how is your eye, and how is your wrist??? ???

Hugs,
Danielle

Just what you need to help with the motivation to keep on that diet. Keep plugging away I am sure you will get there.

Scalles have always Yoyoed for me by a few pounds as I weigh daly and the scales are rubbish. Just ignore it and go with the trend. It will be down if you keep close to your diet. I weight same time in the morning and I have noticed that the ups and downs reflect how good I have been with a 2 day delay. This can throw you and seem disheartening if you ate good and the weight goes up.

I have been on a 1000C (ish) diet for 3 months and losing about 14lb a month

Love
Jessica

Dear Davina:
Very good news to read regarding your 2 pounds (almost ONE Kg) weight loss.   I know from personal experience that it can be difficult to keep my weight down ...  as with you, I love to cook and bake, good things I have lots of friends to share my creations with or I would swell up like a balloon!!

Congratulations on this part of your "Diet Attempt" success.

Hugs and well wishes,
Danielle

If a new battery doesn’t solve the problem you will want to make certain that the scale is on an even smooth surface...  if it still acts up it is time to get a new one

This  morning it was the same as yesterday morning so that doesn't explain the 6lb gain in a day. Not from fluid either as dehydrated slightly .
