Made it half way ~~ would like some buddies for mutual support
I started my weightloss journey last may @ 22st. Began with calorie counting, then on to Juddd in July. I'm surprised To have lost 5st so far considering i'm in my 50's, been overweight since a child and never lost over 2st without falling off the wagon and piling on even more pounds than I struggled to lose.
Its wonderful get half way :), although it hasn't been easy or very fast due to my lupus & mobility issues. Its always 2 steps forward 1 backward with me, but I feel with the alternative day fasting is working for me, even when i fall its easier to get back on track <500 fasting days & 1800 on normal days means I don't feel as deprived as I do on a daily restrictive diets.
This year I want to try some regular gentle exercise & reach my 14 st goal for my birthday in August, then hopefully down to 12st & out of the overweight bmi category by the end of the year.
I think my biggest battle this year is an emotional one, firstly to believe I can see it through, secondly to accept although I wont end up with a great looking body ie saggy bits & loose skin etc that the health benefits will be great, and thirdly how I'll adapt to being slim, something I've never experienced. So I've decided to post here, make a few buddies (open to offers lol) & offer support where I can.
