    That's me...

    Riddled with health issues that would improve with some weight loss!! Well I say some... I actually mean 5 stone. A few years ago I lost nearly 6 stone and enjoyed being thin, was even in a magazine. Now two children later and I'm gigantic and depresses... Miserable. Typically I want to make a new year start. My daughters christening is in march and I'd like to lose a stone and a half. Feels an impossible challenge.

    You have made the 1st step. I know where your head is - I have 10 stones to lose and it seems unachieveable. I have decided to take it 7lbs at a time.

    What plan are you going to be following?

    That's a good target, 7lb at a time. I think if I lost a little it might propel me to keep going. Where are you?

    Welcome to the forum, you have definately come to the right place! I too have about 5 stone to lose in total so I know how you feel (but without the kids!). What plan are you going to be following?

    I know you can do it, because I've been in a similar position too (no kids but a long term regain, and health was my main motivation this time around too). Good luck.

    I like to reward myself with every half stone too.
    Even if it's as silly as adding another sparkly '7' to my signature. It really spurs me on.

    Stay on here. Try and post regularly; others will inspire you and you will, in return, inspire others to continue their weight loss.

    Remember to update all of your information, you may not think that you've lost too much, but when the little 'percentage lost' keeps creeping up each week, your BMI goes down each week, and your tracker keeps moving to the right and the direction of 'goal' - this will encourage you to stay on the path that you've admitted you want to be on!

    Good luck!

    All I can say is this: If you've lost it once you can lose it again. That's what I have to keep telling myself!
