Weight Loss Resolutions


It’s that time again when we’re all sitting down making lists of resolutions for the year and I’m guessing some of us are thinking about weight loss once again

This is great news as I will be back next week with Weight Loss Wednesday and my hints and tips for making your journey easier but can I ask one thing now?

Please, please don’t tell yourself you’ll wake up tomorrow and begin your diet

It’s may be the 1st January but chances are you have a few more days left of your holiday from work or before the children return to school, there are still Christmas leftovers littering your home and family visits still planned

Instead think of a sensible start date. For me it’s Monday 4th when I return to work and I will be in a routine. Instead of battling the next couple of days with the tub of malteasers spend this time preparing; clean out your cupboards and arm husbands/children with leftover mince pies and sweets for their friends/office, what sort of food do you need to buy to help you eat healthier for the month?

There’s nothing worse than starting trying to eat sensibly when you’re not prepared and know that there are too many obstacles in way to make it a success and have a positive impact

Pin It Now!


  1. I think that is a bit impossible to start a diet on the first day of the year. Your starting date sounds a bit more realistic, but for me wouldn't work as it is my little one's first birthday! :)
    Happy New Year, Victoria!!

  2. I agree, you just can't start something in a holiday season, or a weekend, would be torture!

    Me and my other half want to lose some weight so may join in with you ;o)

    Hope you have a lovely New Years Eve and a happy 2010 xx

  3. I was missing a lot your WL tips!
    Have a great New Year's Eve and a fabulous 2010!!! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  4. Yep..I am also in the try lose weight nest year club! lol... and you are so right, no point trying to start when there are left over chocolates around! so next week is the start...I will be following you and your tips...see you in 2010! Happy New Year Victoria xx

  5. Hi Victoria
    yes I'm with you on the weight loss train again, hopefully we'll all lose what we need to this year so it won't be top of our list next year.
    Have a great new year

  6. Wise words, Victoria! No need to set yourself up for failure. I wish for you a healthy, happy and peaceful new year! Twyla

  7. Hey sweets,
    im so on board with this
    happy new years!!

  8. Very sensible advice, Victoria - I'll be starting next Monday as well. Good luck with your weightloss journey this year x

  9. inspirational advice again Victoria... looking forward to more words of wisdom in 2010... have a fantastic new year. hugs Tx

  10. wise words my dear. Wise words. The weight watchers book looks like a corker! I've had a quick flick through and know already that I am going to get such alot of inspiration from it. Thank you soooo much for the email. I wondered if that might be the case, so I shall heed your advice.

    You are so sensible and realistic about your weight loss plan. Shame you can't talk to Victoria Beckham! I was just reading 'Closer', and whilst I know all magazine articles must be taken with a large pinch of salt, if they are right about her latest diet plan, she could do with a serious chat with you!

    Have a very lovely New Year's Eve. Enjoy yourself!
    Thank you so much for your comment! Right back atchya! xxx

  11. Hi Victoria,

    Thanks for the tip! I have investigated. Do you just have to report on progress? I agree, best to be realistic and start when you can. I'm starting on Monday too (first boot camp, arrr!). I am going to Sainsbury's tomorrow armed with a list to buy all my diet supplies. i have printed off a few food planners so I have some ideas for meals.

    Happy new year!

    Sian x

  12. Victoria, Happy New Year to you!

  13. Happy New Year, wishing you much happiness in 2010.

  14. Great advice! I'm really looking forward to gettiong back on the wagon!
