    Well today is the start of me, my brother and my sister in law starting our sw journey together with weigh in photos being taken and sent to each other on a weekly basis - first target to lose weight for is my niece's christening at the end of March. Hopefully we can all lose a decent amount by then and the support of this site and online sw we should sail through ..... Feeling determined!

    First weigh in: 13 stone (me) 11st 6 (sis in law) and 15 stone (bro)

    :happy096: How lovely that all three of you are going to be supporting one another in your SW journeys :clap: :clap: :clap:

    Couple of thoughts I'd like to share, if you don't mind?

    Weekly photo's will be too much (you'll barely notice the odd lb or three); monthly might be better ;)

    You have 6 weeks between now and the end of March (roughly) and the expected, average, weight loss is geared at between 1 and 2lb per week = a minimum of 6lb and a maximum of 12lb between now and then :clap: Wow! You are all going to look fab!! :clap:

    Thank you for your thoughts and your message :) the photos are of our weight on the scales not our bodies (thankfully as mine will take a lot of loss to notice a difference lol) as for weight loss I will b over the moon to lose anywhere between them weights every lb is a bonus :) x

    Aha! "Evidence" - I get it :giggle:

    You are going to do just great! Particularly as you are in competition with family - a healthy competition between close ones is always a great motivator, I think :) Go knock them for six :giggle:

    Ah well done on your loss.
    Remember a pound a week is three and a half stone a year.
    Keep going, have you done a food diary, so your consultant can look at it?
