    15 stone + to lose before my 30th birthday!!

    Hey everyone,

    I'm new on here but i wanted to write a post showing where i started!

    I am offically the heaviest i have ever been and i cant lie...i hate it!! i feel awful all the time! i've always thought that i was lucky that my weight didnt affect me too much, but wow has it caught up with me now!

    I'm 27 and i am giving myself until my 30th birthday to lose nearly half my body weight and hopefully gain a life!

    15 stone is a hell of a lot to lose, but if i dont do something now, before i know it i will have 20stone to lose, so i gotta get cracking NOW!

    Ive read loads of your threads and i am so inspired, you are doing so well!!!!!

    Good luck everyone

    Good luck and welcome. I wish I'd got my weight sorted by 30... Or 40. Coming up to 50 with 9 stone to lose and as you say it does affect your health - well done for recognising it in yourself.

    Keep posting x

    Welcome, this part of the forum is a great place for those of us with large amounts to lose. My advice is to set yourself mini goals for example each stone bracket, or like my next one is to get below 200lbs. And then focus on the next one, breaking it into smaller chunks I find really helpful. So welldone on starting your journey and good luck.

    I have a thread on the slim fast forum, feel free to browse through it. I started off at 60 miles an hour with all the intentions but slowed it down to a realistic pace and am having regular losses at last. I always read people saying if they can do it then anyone can. I just though yeah whatever. But from where I was, basically addicted to junk food and as heavy as my age, I have come so far and changed my life. I could never go back. My next birthday will be the first one since I was 22 that I won't weigh the same as my age. If I hadnt started the diet i'd be 30 and 30 stone and that was finally the push I needed to do something about my weight. So REALLY HONESTLY, if I can do this then anyone can, including you!
    It's scary and daunting and a long way to go but like another poster said, do it in small goals. The time will fly by and in 6 months time you'll be so glad you started. I know I am.
    Its not noticeable on me yet, 3 stone is a drop in the ocean to what I need to lose but I can tell myself that my body is shrinking and I've dropped from size 32 to 28.
    Don't give up, message me for support if you want. We can do this!!! xxx

    Hello and welcome aboard

    You've come to the right place hun, we all understand and all want the same result! You are being very sensible and not trying to race to the finishing line in a matter of weeks! I've been 'trying' to lose excess weight on and off for almost 25 years...finally it is working.

    Once your head is in the right place, then motivation and determination follows. It's not easy honey and there are blips along the way, but that's when this forum helps, as so many will encourage you and support you and you will never feel alone.

    I've made lots of friends on here and wouldn't or couldn't have done half as well without them

    hang on in there .you WILL DO THIS! ...I for one, believe in you and look forward to chatting with you!

    thanks ladies! everyone is so nice on here! it is so refreshing to speak to like minded people and not be judged straight away for my weight.

    Thanks for all the kind words

    i have made my own healthy veg soup today! i made enough so that it will last me a few days, so i have my lunches taken care of for most of the week

    Anyone got any good ideas for low cal snacks? im craving something sweet.

    Meringue nests with nat yog and some fruit is good. Also aldi do chocolate and yoghurt covered rice cakes but you'll have to check the cals. They are nice though xx

    Hello trim - and good luck with your journey! I managed to go from over 15 stone to 8 stone 13 in the last year or so. I know our goals and starting points are different but it's all relative, that's for sure.

    OK... Here are my ideas for sweet treats. You're calorie counting right?

    Total 0% fat free yogurt with a small banana sliced in plus 3 chopped apricots. Very sweet and comes in at 135 calories

    Fat free jelly.. a pot of this is 10 calories

    Eat Natural cereal bars. the yogurt coated one is delicious. 228 calories so not low calories per se, but low enough to fit in to your allowance I'm sure.

    Have the above with an Options hot chocolate... 28 calories a mug. Helps take the edge off.

    If you've read my diary or my ramblings elsewhere, you'll know that i'm not a fan of snacking anyway, so I'd recommend you only eat the above if you're desperate or tack them on to the end of a meal. FAR better is to just eat three times a day... At your starting point I'd recommend you start with a minimum of 1800 calories, maybe a little more actually. Just so you have room to start decreasing them as your weight drops. Not grazing all day is the way to go re weight loss... I can bore on more about this if you'd like. Just say the word

    Hiya and welcome! Good luck with your weight loss. You've got a bit more to lose than I did - my aim is a 10 stone loss over 2 years, of which 7.5 stone has gone so far. Just to offer an alternative opinion to Greta's, I find snacking to be an absolute must for me - it's that old little and often thing that works for me, but everyone's different! Try a handful (about 15) of almonds as a 100 calorie snack that's also good for you, or a fruit snack pot (I'm sitting here with a pot of Morrison's melon, grape and pineapple, 79 calories and yummy - add a low fat yogurt to it for an extra treat!). I also eat Alpen Lights like they're going out of fashion - not very healthy, but low calorie. Or those Nakd bars, but they're a little pricey.

    All the best. xx
