Hi everyone

I'm not at the end of my journey yet but I hit 8 stone lost yesterday. I've got 2 more to lose but I figure 8 is worth celebrating.

I've lost it through various diets (I changed diets when I struggled) mostly just plain calorie counting and Cambridge.

I'm on Cambridge for the last bit then I'll go back to calorie counting again to maintain.

Anyway the reason I post is to say that when I started dieting at 21 stone 9 I would see people who had lost loads and feel a bit intimidated. I'd think..wow could I ever do that?

In the end I thought..well if they can so can I....and I was right....and so can you!

The other thing though is that I've done a lot of head work as well. I don't think anyone gets up to over 20 stone without there being issues to sort out.

I'm determined never to be that weight again so I've worked through my issues on the way down. Now I feel completely different inside - MUCH happier and more confident.

Now to get that other 2 stone off.

Thank you everyone. I would post photo's but I have a horrible work colleague who is trying to find me on the internet and that would be confirmation.

Anyway thank you and just believe you can do it. x

Well done Coley

Fantastic achievement Coley.
You are absolutley right. It's the "head stuff" that's make or break with this weight loss business.
People don't get to the weight we were by just eating too many Mars bars!
There are usually complex reasons for gradually putting on the weight over a long period of time.
If we address those on the way back down we are much more likely to be able to maintain.
You'll have that last 2 stone off by the summer.


That's amazing! Wow, well done! I'm about the same weight as when you started. Thank you so much for sharing your story you give me hope x
