Classic case: been dieting for 10 years on and off, have a hubby who is probably a little underweight, have a 8mth old who needs stuff to be mashed, and I'd love to lose a stone. Saw a picture of me at a wedding yesterday, after I'd lost my pregnancy weight (only put on 6lb), and I nearly cried, looked massive.

I'm 25, a size 12-14, 5 7, and 11 st 8lb so a little chubby. I work 3 days a week and work in retail gardening so run around a bit and do lots of lifting.

I'd like to know if there's anyone who's managed to lose that last bit and if there's any tips?

Thank you

I've ordered Chinese tonight-first takeaway since new year! Normally its one a week at least. Going to split it over two nights to limit the calorie damage!

Well done daisy! I'm also looking to lose another half stone or so to give myself a birthday buffer lol

Chinese not too bad really - I had takeaways every night last week and still lost 2lb, the trick is portions and getting something not too bad to start ie instead of korma I had tandoori chicken - good luck

I've had a but if a blip again.got complacent after my takeaway and have had a massive cheese burger and biscuit for lunch. think i need to practice not letting the flood gates open after every treat!

Defo hard to do - once you've started you can't stop. I always feel guilty so I tend to have something I really want instead of having the fattest thing because I can

Am having few days off because of various meals out but had salad at restaurant last night and didn't drink wine so hopefully not too much damaged caused
