hi guys! well so far ive lost quite a bit of weight. 3stone 3 lbs but ive kinda gone off course. ive not gained anymore weight from whay ive lost but ive come to a stand still and have not lost any weight due to me eating naughty foods. So ive given myself a deadline to loose 6lbs before new year which is going to be super tough with all the yummy xmas goodies about! Also i want to quit smokin but im scared that il pile on the pounds if i do so! Any ideas to help me guys lol x

That's brilliant! Well done on losing over 3 stone - amazing! Weightwatchers say there's no such thing s 'naughty' foods as you can eat anything you want as long as it's in moderation! I don't think I ever go a day without chocolate in some form or other.
I personally wouldn't try to 'lose' weight over Xmas as there's too much tempting stuff around. Perhaps carry on trying until Xmas/New Year week and then just try & maintain rather than put on. I don't know whetehr that's a negative thing to say but to me just staying still and not gaining would be a struggle over Christmas! Try to buy 'lower' versions of foods and don't buy as many Xmas Nibbles. Just 'cos the supermarkets are selling Buy '1 Giant Tin of Nuts/Chocs and Get 2 Free' - it doesn't mean you have to buy them. That's what I keep telling myself anyway!
Good luck and speak to your GP about the smoking thing as loads of GP practices have someone there who helps people give up smoking and has tips/ideas etc. We have a nurse at ours who does it.
Cheers hun! Yeah i no i shouldn't diet over xmas but if I ate what i wanted id pile the pounds straight back on thats why im being strict with myself over xmas then if i do stray away from time to time I wont gain too much weight lol! luckily chocolate is not my weakness its savoury things that is and cheese! lol. I fink i will just eat sensibly and not diet but no scoff! lol thn as from jan i'll work my but off hee hee xxx
