I have 12 stone 10.5lbs to lose in total. It is a HUGE amount, although I am tackling it in smaller chunks - each 1/2 stone, dropping into each new stone bracket, each drop in a BMI point, each inch of the waist, each interim target, club 10 etc - otherwise it seems like such a huge mountain to climb.
I think it's probably going to take around 2 years to shift it all - although I now have just under 10 stone to lose so that seems a bit more achieveable than the nearly 13 that I started with!
Anyway, I was wondering, those of you who lost 10 stone +, how long did it take you and did the last few stone take forever?
I have more than 10 stone to lose, too, as do many on here. Plenty have lost over 100lb as well. Check out Minus117's thread, she has lost 8 stone since January.
So it IS achievable. I'll be on here for many months, maybe years, like you say, so am happy to buddy up with you and share tips etc.
Also beside the seaside!
I would also love to buddy up. :D
My total I needed to lose was 14 stone I think, I still have about 11 to go. Maybe even 13 to go if I want to get to the bottom of my healthy BMI range. I'll see how I feel when I get there, though.
I would also like to know how getting close to the end is. :)
But yeah I expect to be doing SW for life now, as I never want to get to my largest point ever again.
Just think you're already doing so well. :)
Thanks ladies! Maybe we could use this thread every week to spur us long-termers on? It's quite frightening to think I let myself get into this state. I've got down to 16 stone 5lbs twice in the past (on Lighter Life and Cambridge - never again) and put it all back on and more - although I did have a baby so I blame the pregnancy too ;) I'm really keen to get down to that weight again so I can work on being the lightest I've ever been as an adult!
I'm sure you'll get there soon enough! as I said before you're already doing so well. :)
And I would love to keep popping in here. :D We'll all be great inspiration for each other x
I have 10stone plus to lose also. I'm putting 10 stone as target but I will see how I feel when I get there if I want to go further.
You have the right idea in taking it in small 7lb chunks. That's what I do and I never think of the overall amount. It seems to be working for me so far :)
Welcome. It does seem like a daunting number doesn't it? I have the same amount to lose. Its gonna be a long road but it can be done.
It is hard when you first start seeing the starting weight but each week you get a little buzz when you see the numbers going down or getting into the next stone bracket etc :) x

Good luck to everyone ;)
I need to lose 14st in total with 8st 2.5lb lost already and sometimes it's a huge struggle

Well done on those losses!
I'm down 3 stone so far but with having 10 still to go it feels not so nice. :/
Feel proud today, avoided chocolate when out.. lol :)
I rejoined SW on Tuesday after a 3yr absence. I have over 10st to lose, haven't thought about a goal weight yet, I will cross that bridge when I get a bit closer to it :)
I'm a long termer too.
I'm just chipping away 0.5 stone at a time.
Club 10 is the one I really want. I've never got Club 10 before, and hubby has said he'll buy me the bicycle I've wanted for ages when I get it.
I'm sure you'll get it! I was so happy when I got mine. I thought I would never reach it, lol.
