I'm in. Pledge to lose 10, maybe another 10 after that (which would be back to my pre-mature and over 40 weight)...

Approach - eat at home, instead of catching meals wherever I am, pay attention to carbs, and get some walks in. I'll try to remember to update weekly.

Great idea.

I'll be there 10 x 10 - I need to lose an awful lot - so far 14ibs have left and many more to go.

It's great h aving these forums to post on as it feels like support that is always positive and doesn't make you feel bad by saying " I thought you were on a diet" everytime you eat something.

I'm currently sipping my meal replacer - choc flavour!

That is what makes me laugh at the moment, I had just got myself weaned onto healthy foods, then I decided to use up my meal replacements, so I'm living on sweet stuff it seems

I have been eating really healthy for five months now but its the half term hols and my daughter and her friend are staying and keep buying potatoe chips and cadburies creme eggs and my will power went out the window lol

So I will start my plan to lose my first 10lbs weigh in once they have gone home. I love that your forum is the the only forum that has a plus sized forum. Well done. I feel I am not judged here.

And there is lots of support for all the riders here :)

I pledge to loose 10 pounds also. I plan to give up my glass of wine on most nights and go to my exercise class in the morning. NO CARBS TOO!!!

Starting tomorrow, right now going out to dinner for Valentines with hubby.

I promise to walk round the block at least daily - maybe more - with the dog! and to ride my horse for longer time. Today I worked her twice - she needs to lose weight too! When I think how much better I feel for losing the first 14lbs I am really looking forward to losing more.

I'm not gonna pledge , but my mom keeps insisting I have to start weighting at least once/week now.

When I try to lose I cut-off the dinner, limit the portions, try to eat/substitute with carrots and apples when hungry, and try to walk more. I don't exercise really (because unless you cut the amount all lbs will come back as long as you can't exercise anymore (because of time or health constraints)).
