    The way it creeps up on you is amazing.

    I came back here after a while away, and I am amazed that my profile says my current weight is 13.7st.

    The weight creeps up on you so gradually that you forget how far you've come.

    I now weigh 18.5st. I attribute this mainly to high carbohydrate intake, and my less active than before lifestyle doesn't help either.

    It's probably time to make some cut backs!

    Hi Paul. All the best on your new start. I am in a similar place where lost weight and became more active and slowly became less active and stopped watching what I ate so I am back to restarting again. Look forward to hearing about your journey xoxo
    26th August 2014 - Starting Over...again!!
    2/9/14= -1.75lbs (14st 9 1/4)
    8/9/14= -2lbs (14st 7 1/4)
    20/9/14 =14st 7lbs on slimming world scales.
    27/9/14 = -5lbs, 14st 2lbs (1st wk on SW!)
    4/10/14 = -2lbs, 14 st (2nd wk on SW)

    1) get to under 14 stone
    2) go back to the climbing wall
    3) get to 13 st 7lbs
    4) book a guided bike ride- sky ride
    5) get to 13 stone
    If actually make it to 13 stone then will make more goals!

I tend to do exercises during the adverts of a programme I am watching and by the time the end credits roll I have completed a 20 minute workout. Can't be bad.

    Good luck in your journey
    Thanks. What you're saying is true. I have lost half a stone in the last two weeks without trying to. It must be because I haven't eaten gigantic takeaway pizzas! I might try doing some squats whilst watching TV as well.

    Yeah. It happens so slowly as well, that you don't fully appreciate what you're sacrificing. Gradually, I found myself moving more slowly, and feeling a bit less comfortable in general.

    It boggles the mind to think of how much energy is being spent unnecessarily to carry around excess weight.

    No diary at the moment, because I haven't done anything worthwhile...

    Good luck! It's amazing how quickly it piles on but how slowly it takes to lose it. You can do it!
    Lost 2 1/2 stone on Slimming World from June to November, now trying calorie counting/5:2

    Like I said, I haven't done anything worthwhile with that.

    I have had pizza and beer today.

    Thank you, Kally.

    I think it seems to pile on quickly because you're not being conscious of it. Then when you do become conscious, it seems like it takes an eternity to progress because you're regularly focusing on it.
