    The 100lbs weight loss journey SS

    Hi to all my fellow Cambridge sole sourcers (if that's even a word), I have just started my journey today after years of piling the weight. To put it simply, I am 5.7, and 16st 11lbs and would like to weight 9:7lbs by Christmas. It may be slightly ambitious but I really want to put this battle with my weight to bed once and for all. Tbh, I am fed up with being overlooked, ignored and in turn I have felt my confidence slip away from me as I let the weight pile on ( bad eating habits and not enough exercise). So I wandered if there's anyone in a similar predicament, who wants to partner up with me!

    Welcome :-)

    Just wanted to say good luck. My advice is to stick with it, the longer your 100% the easier it gets. I'm right near the end of my journey having lost 3 stone, just a few more pound to go. This diet really works and there's no reason why you can't lose 5-6 stone by Christmas if you stick to it. Good luck. X

    If you don't cheat your goal is perfectly achievable. My advice is it's all or nothing and well worth just going for it. Every slip just makes life that much harder for yourself. It's way easier to stick to the programme than regularly trying to get back on it. Once you're past day 10 or so it gets so much easier. You'll need to be selfish too. Not let people talk you into eating at functions etc or having a drink because you're out. I can assure you going out at Christmas half the woman you are now will be 1000% times better than having that one little thing now because you succumbed to peer pressure from people who think they are doing you a favour. There is nothing in the world like the feeling when you realise after 30 years of being the biggest one that you're actually a normal weight now. I promise you, stick to it rigidly and you'll never look back.

    Hi guys,
    Just a quick update, seemed to be going well thus far, it's just boredom!!! I don't know about you guys but I feel like I have much more time, now I'm not obsessing over food that much! I can't wait to reach the two week mark so I can introduce exercise. Or when do you guys think it's best?

    @kiwichan Thanks for your advice, tbh, I'm not even telling people (unless I really have to), because I'm not remotely interested in hearing people trying to dissuade me from my goal, such as the usual "you're starving yourself", "but you look fine". I can't stand the constant need for people who have not had a weight problem attempting to stop other people from losing weight, so for now, I would just rather share my experiences here would people who understand...

    Hi Desperatetobethin,
    I hope you're well, hows your first morning going, I trust it's going well. We should definitely partner up and beat this, it's day 5 for me, and I feeling very tired and strangely cold, but from what I gather this goes soon, I must be in ketosis. Can I ask you when you're next weigh in, and what your beginning weight is?

    Hi Misslaylay,

    well done on getting to day 5, I'm not doing too bad today, I feel constantly thirsty today but not really hungry which is good, Hope the tiredness doesn't last long for you, I hate being tired all the time.

    Im going to weigh in on a Monday morning as I'm hoping this will keep me on track on the weekends as this is when I trend to struggle especially when I've had a couple of drinks :-(

    my start weight is 295 which is a bit depressing, however this is the last time I'm going to see that number, I'm determined to reach my goal this time :-)

    what day are you planning to weigh in ?





    Wk1 = 14 lbs
    Wk2 = 4lbs
    Wk3 = 12lbs
    wk4 = +3lbs :-(
    wk5 = 5lbs
    Wk6 = 4.5lbs

    Hi Desperatetobethin, don't worry about your starting weight, what's important is that you have started, and now it will be a thing of the past, but it's great to think about your successful journey and where you came from so you can read appreciate your hard work. It also helps me to keep egging you on to the next stone until you reaching it. We are after-all, in it together lol! My weigh in on Thursday evening and I honestly cannot wait, so I can say I've out a week behind me! What is your goal/target weight?
