    Hi All,

    I was wondering how many people on here are the bad side of 20st at present or have been 20st+ and have broke through that barrier..

    I've only been on the SW plan (hate the word diet) for coming up to 3 weeks now. I started at 366lbs.. and have lost 7.5 lbs in my first two weeks and am hoping to drop a stone a month over the next 5-6 months aiming for around 3lb a week losses... 1 stone a month for 12 months would be great but i'm sure might be an impossible task...

    i know this has the potential to slow down as the weight does start to come off, so i hope i don't start to get frustrated at that point.

    Glad to see so many positive stories of weight loss throughout the forum.

    Hi, I am in the mid 20's and therefore have quite a journey ahead of me. I have done slimming world before but have returned to it this week. Anyone else?

    Hi Bosco! Irish like me by any chance?! I'm in week 3 of SW. Started at 21st 11 1/2 lbs, have lost 11bs in the 3 weeks. I'm concentrating on mini goals, 1 stone per month, because if I try to imagine being 7-10 stone lighter at the moment, I just can't focus and it would seem too much, and the little losses along the way wouldn't be meaningful.

    i'm well over a year in and it's become second nature. loses are slow now, but i still go out and enjoy myself accepting the repercussions of any bad choices but then just getting back on the band wagon with my next meal. it's a lifestyle, not a diet :0)

    I've started my journey at over 24 stone in March 2009. Now I'm 9 stone 5.5 pounds lighter. 4 stone of that lost with SW since October 2010.

    It is possible!

    My weight topped at 21.08 and am now 19.04 - just 2 and a half months later.
    I'm expecting to get in to the 18 stone zone on Monday when weighed...I don't even think about the journey a month at a time; I just focus on each week and keep chipping away. I just got to a point where I was so fed up with being fat and something seemed to click and stick. I think that a scary article about strokes helped too..I just didn't want a future with medical problems when I knew that I could prevent that by losing weight. Do keep going and never give up. You owe it to yourself.

    I started at 23st 10lbs 2 weeks ago and have lost 7lbs so far. I try not to look too far down the line and think too much about what i have got to lose, every week will bring its rewards if i stick to the plan..which im finding really easy so thats a bonus. The energy i have gained in just 2 weeks is amazing...just goes to show you are what you eat..eat crap - feel crap.

    I started at 24 st. Since Aug I have just put my head down and focused on each week. Some weeks have lost 3 or so pounds and some weeks 1 pound despite eating similar but just keep plodding on. I weighed in at 19 st 8lb last week just by chip chip, chipping away at it.
