    ****2stgone over 8 to go.....oh Emma, how did you let this happen?! ****

    Hi everyone

    Long time reader here and I finally bit the bullet and signed up tonight seeing as I read this forum most evenings and it's been a fantastic inspiration to me so far on this looooooong journey to a healthier lifestyle.

    My name is Emma, I'm 24 years old and I currently weigh 19 and a half stone (but not for long fingers crossed!)

    I'v been overweight since I was about 7 years old and the lowest weight I can remember being is about 16stone when I was 18 years old.

    I stepped on the scales before Xmas 2011 and weighed in at 21st 10lb which frightened me so much I decided for once and for all to stop putting my life on hold and making excuse after excuse for my lifestyle.

    I'm no saint but I'm trying my best and exercise is non existant for me at the moment but since the New Year I'v lost 2 stone and I'm now 100% determined that for me, the only way is down I know it's not going to be easy and my willpower is crap but I'v truely committed myself to some serious weight loss goals, simply because I have to....I'm too afraid what will happen if I don't.

    I'v downloaded MFP onto my phone and I'm currently trying to stick to about 1350-1500 cals per day.

    So far, some weeks I'v lost, others I'v STS but from now on, I'm trying to be a lot more focused about my eating and I'm aiming for a 2-2.5lb loss per week. I know that this is probably unrealistic but I have to try.

    I'v made myself some mini goals so far (which are probably a little far-fetched but a girl has to dream )

    -10 weeks from now I'm going to a concert with friends I havent seen in ages and want to weigh 250lb which means a 25lb loss in 10 weeks, probably crazy)

    -My next milestone will be when I reach 16st which is my lowest adult weight that I remember

    -And hopefully, to weigh 200-210lbs by Xmas 2012.

    I plan on logging here most days and would love any feedback good or bad and would definitely welcome any criticism of my crazy goals because I'm truly astounded by the willpower and success stories on here and can't wait to start my journey here and hopefully learn from others and support each other along the road

    Welcome to the forum

    I started off around the same weight! Your goal for the next ten weeks isn't unrealistic. You can do it!

    Are you following a specific plan?

    I wish you all the luck in the world. 2 stone since Xmas is brilliant xxxx
    FIRST GOAL IS TO GET OUT OF THE OBESE BMI CATEGORY AND BACK INTO OVERWEIGHT. YES I WILL CELEBRATE BEING SIMPLY CLASSED AS OVERWEIGHT AND NOT OBESE




    I thank the support of minimins for where I am today. xxxx

    Thanks guys! Not 100% sure how to work this properly yet so my replies are probably all over the place!

    Not following any specific plan just calorie counting. Aiming for 1350-1500 cals per day. Im hoping to lose 202.5lbs per week at the moment. Is this too high for that weight loss with no exercise yet? I know there is no point me trying Atkins or anything like that because as soon as I cant have something I will want it!

    Happy to take any tips/advice at all

    You're loss is AMAZING, well done! What plan are you following? x

    Hi and welcome to the forum, sounds like your head is in the right place which is good and that your on track to losing weight

    202.5lbs a week is a lot lol but if you meant 2.5lbs a week, for some it can be a lot, for some (like me) its not. When I was doing WW and calorie counting I was losing 2.8 - 3lbs a week & that was with or without exercise.

    Hey! welcome!

    I dont think 2.5lbs a week is a lot for you at all. I think it is a perfectly achievable goal. They say that between 1 and 2lbs per week is a healthy weight loss that is sustainable over a long period of time. Those with several st to loose - like me - can probably get away with 3 or 4 lbs per week which will naturally slow down as we get closer to goal.

    Keep posting and i look forward to hearing about your shrinking!!

    Thanks for the vote of confidence everyone, I really can't emphasise enough how brill I find this forum.

    Was away for the weekend at a friends place, was out Saturday night and had a good few vodkas! :O

    And today....well, I won't even get into it really but I do tend to allow myself a cheat day a week, not a day where I literally dont stop eating but a day where I'll have a takeaway if I fancy it or something like that.

    Anyway, had a big KFC meal today....ugh! I'm not too cut up about it because I had been craving it for weeks and finally allowed myself it but I'm just hoping to God that it and the voddies the previous night don't ruin my week! Wednesday will tell anyway.

    Anyway staright after my takeaway, went off and did my grocery shopping for the week and planned out what I'm going to have each day for each meal...I find this really does help me so at least I know that I'll be back on track for the week hopefully! Time will tell anyway!

    Hope everyone had a lovely weekend x

    Been so bad as posting lately but have a lot going on. Was let go from work along with a few more people...we were only on 12 mth contracts and basically knew it wasnt going to be renewed as things are gone v quiet but still. Realisation that I'm unemployed again sucks terribly. Also might have to move home in the next month as wont be able to afford my rent...thing is dont have a good relationship with my parents at all. So had a pretty shitty week.

    Anyway, weighed in at 19.6 yesterday / 272lb , not reaching my goals but scale is going in the right direction I guess.

    Going to aim for 19.3lb for next Weds and I WILL GET IT

    Sunday is going to be a cheat day (having a night out with the girls....really do need the cheering up and pizza is planned before) Will just be extra good apart from that!

    Still no compliments on the weight loss apart from a friend last weekend who I was getting ready to head out with (but he hadnt seen me in ages) but I am seeing a teeny difference in the mirror, definitely feels that its coming off my belly (gut has marginally reduced lol) I guess the lack of people noticing just shows how far I have to go!

    Ah well, onwards and downwards x

    Hi, at least you are going in the right direction. You are doing well. I am hoping to lose 2lb a week for next 20 weeks to lose two stone before i go on holiday october. Keep up the good work, and lots of luck in reaching your goals xx

    Thanks a mil, happy to be going in the right direction at least thank god. Beginning to see a tiny bit of a difference in myself. Went on a night out last night and wore a skirt that wouldnt zip up on me two months ago What's scary is that while I'v lost over two stone, there's not much of a difference and I still have another 7/8 stone to go. I feel it should be coming off a bit faster as I'm so heavy. It kind of frightens me how bad I let myself go. I really do think though that I'm on the right track long term even now, my attitude to eating is just so much healthier.

    You're goals sound brill, I'm sure you'll get there, keep thinking of the holiday

    Eeeeekkkk....my weight loss journey is really on my mind today. I guess its cos I saw a few friends that I hadnt seen in ages last night and I felt better than I have in a while. People that read this probably think I'm crazy when I say that cos for gods sake I'm still 19 and a half stone which is probably hard to comprehend. I think it's the fact that some of my clothes have gotten noticeably too big. It's really spurring me on and making me want to succeed. I have to lose this weight, Im just so disappointed that I didnt take it seriously until now and Im 24. Oh well.

    Weighed myself today (couldnt resist) and I was 270.8lbs which is 19.5lbs......BRING ON THE 18's. Hopefully I'll be down to 19.3 for WI on Wednesday fingers and toes crossed.

    Now to my goals....what I promised myself was that I would be 250lbs by 26 June when Im going to a concert with all my friends. That leaves me around 20lbs to lose in just over 7 weeks.

    To be honest, I dont know if I will be able to get this as it means I nee 3lbs per week until then. Im going to try my best because reaching 250 is like a little mental milestone I have set out for myself.

    Don't want to set myself up for failure but all I can do is try.

    Sorry for the ramblings if anyone is reading. xxxx
