    I'm starting this thread as I want to get below 20 stone by the end of the year, I weighed in at 425 pound this morning. Over the last 6 odd months I've put on 10 stone after I had boost over 16 stone, daft I know but it is what it is and this time it won't be as daunting but in one way it's going to be even harder as river the past 6 months I've eating like a pig to be honest. Loads of stuff has happened in private life but still no excuse and now is the time to step up and get a grip once more.

    So everyone who wants to join along can, I'm going to be weighing in on the first of every month.

    So my starting weight for this challenge is 425 pound (30 stone 5 pound)

    Here's to a lighter/healthier 2013

    I hope the diet goes all well and what are your plans. What calorie intake are you thinking about, and exercise.

    Might be a good idea to keep a food log and watch your calorie intake,

    Also on this forum we do monthly targets. EG we got a post started to state wha we would like to lose within the january month, myself i am aiming 14lbs

    Hello there just going to go back to my eating plan that I did when I lost weight before.
    Something along tar lines of weetabix for breakfast. Then a yogurt for snack then sanI and crisps for dinner then a apple for snack in afternoon then a main meal like spam bol or stir fry or leg dinner. Then some crackers in the evening. Doing it this way as I know it works and drinking plenty of water. Me and the Missus actually went out for a walk tonight.

    Hello James.

    I've recently decided to do something similar, I weighed in at a whopping 28st 4lbs on new years day. My target weight would be less than 20st too but ideally 16-17st id be extremely happy with (I've not been happy with my body for many o year but was hard to put the pies down etc)

    I might be cheating a little as ive started lipotrim meal replacements, but ill probably be on it for a max 5-6months. However the point im trying to make is that; take things one day at a time, set yourself relistic mini targets and stay positive, and before you know it you'll be at your ultimate goal.

    Best wishes

    Cherry-Blossom I CAN do this

    I'm in. Not quite 10 stone to lose (I'm probably looking 8-9.5 stone loss) but still seems rather daunting. I've myself a target of 6 for this year which is half a stone a month. I'd love to be at target for 2014 but I know if I set my sights too high I'll definitely fall off and 7lb a month is doable.

    Good luck everyone.

    Hi James. Good luck on your journey! I'm aiming for a good 6-7 stone loss (so not quite 10) but it's all a plus I suppose!
    Good Luck and Best Wishes everyone! :)
