    Success stories?

    Hi All !!
    Just starting out on MFP (My fitness pal calorie counting app) eating healthy and flexible and aiming to eat clean mostly. Just wondering what sort of success you guys are having on calorie counting? I started out on Slimming World, did well but now looking for some more flexibilty so here I am to give CC a go!
    Any tips and success stories would be a great start! I have 50 lbs or so to lose, 3 and half stone=) my 26th Birthday in October would really like to be there more or less!! X

    Check out my ramblings.

    I'm just calorie counting. Nothing fancy. No rules other than don't go over your daily calorie limit.

    Thank you!

    Two stone in four months is a really achievable target, very sensible. Just make sure you keep your daily calories high enough to be able to keep it up, and you'll do great! xx

And aiming to lose around 1.5 to 2lb a week which gives me 1430..so i hopeeee fingers crossed that it worrrrks eeeek!!!

    1,430 sounds pretty sensible. I don't exercise at all, and have never gone below around 1,300-1,400, even after dropping my calories after losing a lot. I just find 1,200 too low! xx

    I lost about 5st and 5lbs with Calorie Counting in 2000 and kept it off until last year when I had a small accident which stopped me from going to the gym etc and sat on my backside eating cheese sandwiches and drinking wine and 1st has appeared from nowhere.
    So - back to CC to get rid of it.

    I weighed what you do now. I messed about half heartedly for a while then decided to get my act together so all in all about a year. I lost between nothing and 3lbs a week - there was no pattern to it really but like TracyG said your target is very do-able.
    I started again last Tuesday and at weigh in today I lost 4lbs but don't expect half of that next week unless I work really hard. I go to 2 exercise classes and 2 aqua classes a week and walk as far as I can.
    Good Luck with it - for me it is far easier to loose weight with CC than SW Green Days - too much free food and I ate it all.
