    Need to loose 5 stone

    Hi everyone, I have birth in may and started slimming world at the start of July but went on holiday in August and went off plan and never went back on, 3 weeks ago I decided that now it's time to get back on track and try and tackle my weight, been on plan since then and have lost 7.5 pounds, weigh in is on a Wednesday so I hope more this week. Ive also started jogging just for 15 mins in the evening round the block 5 times a week to increase my fitness, I'm always out waking with my daughter and walk a couple of miles every day with the buggy.

    My target weight is to loose 5 stone by june next year. does anyone think that possible ? I will be my sisters bridesmaid and would love nothing more than to feel good about myself, I've always been over weight in my life and I really want to do this for myself and my baby daughter

    It is possible if you make a commitment to yourself that this is it!

    I started off in September with 5.5 stone to lose. 10 weeks later and I'm just half a pound shy of having lost 1.5 stone.

    You can do it, just stay focussed.

    Good luck!

    I lost 5.5 stone in a year so yes, it can be done! Would have been less than a year if I hadn't a month or so faffing around and not really losing.

    Hoping to do it all again next year once my baby arrives and get to target

    Good luck! xxx

    Lost 5.5 stone with Slimming World in just over a year, shortly before we finally got our BFP 10 April 2013 after a long time waiting and hoping!

    Seth Rowan was born on 15 December 2013 - our gorgeous and long awaited son <3

    Target - to get rid of my pregnancy weight!

    Hi Emma, like you I have 5 stone to loose and have given myself 12 months to get to my target. I have just done my 1st week and lost 3lb. Im just getting to grips with the plan, last week was fine I had plenty to eat and felt full after my meals which on other diets I have done in the past I was hungry.

    Good luck will keep a look out for your posts

    Definitely doable but very challenging. However I can promise you that even if you 'only' lose 3 stone (and therefore a way off your initial aim) you will still feel amazing.

    Everyone responds differently to a tough target. Some embrace it and celebrate whatever they manage to achieve towards it (in which case go for it). Others may go for it and then become despondent early if they feel they won't get there by the said date.

    So, make sure you don't disappoint yourself so that you can enjoy the journey (might sound strange but it is like that in many ways) and best of luck

    Stick to plan, attend all classes, and make an effort to make meals interesting, it'll be gone before you know it and you'll have tools for a lifetimes healthy eating.

    That's my biggest problem! Trying to make food interesting! I have started with buying a spice rack full of spices and herbs. I am hoping to use each one at least once ;-) also, going to try some new things from my local greengrocer! (I had never heard of celeriac or purple broccoli, but it made soups yummy!)
