First ever thread of my own...8 stones gone!

#1
Hello all you lovely Minimins folk!

Really chuffed today to have reached the 8 stone lost mark! :party0049: Because I'm on no particular diet, my weight loss has been pretty slow, which means it feels extra good when I get to each milestone!

I've still got plenty to lose, but feel a million times better than I did 18 months ago. Am suffering pretty badly with the dreaded loose/saggy skin which gets me down abit, but I try to think that I'd far, far rather be slimmer with the loose skin that bigger again.

This is the first summer in yeeears that I would really love some nice warm weather - in recent years always hiding under layers of clothes meant I dreaded hot days! Bring on the sunshine!

Thanks very much everyone! When you start out it feels like you're never going to get anywhere near where you want to be...it seems like you've got a mountain to climb! But things change over time, and here I am 18 months later much closer to my goal (whatever that is...) than I thought I'd get! The rest is going to be hard work though, I can tell!!


Flipping amazing!!!! Tell me how you did it? I think 8st lost is a phenomenal achievement!!!
I decided just to try and change my lifestyle to a healthier one. I'd never actually eaten that badly, but my weight was down to a lack of exercise and probably eating just too much quantity wise. I bought an exercise bike, on which I did 5 miles every day for the first 6 months or so, and for the past year have been doing 10 miles without fail. I try to eat heathily and sensibly (most of the time!), and always like to know what is in any food I eat (calories, fat, sugar etc).

That's a fantastic loss!! Amazing! What kind of things do you eat day to day? xxx
I would say I eat quite normally really - I haven't cut anything out altogether...just everything in moderation! I always have breakfast - which is cereal of some kind. Lunch might be a sandwich, or toast, or my favourite at the moment ryvita and houmous! Mmmm! Dinner is whatever is being cooked! I have the odd takeaway, the odd cake and biscuit here and there, and the odd bit of chocolate - wouldn't be able to give it all up completely! If I had been really strict with what I eat, I would have lost weight quicker - but I enjoy food, and didn't want to restrict myself too much!

Another rare addition to my diary, but thought I'd just add that as of today I am no longer considered 'overweight', according to my bmi - which is now 24.5! I'm not quite where I want to be yet, but probably for the first time since I was pretty young I'm considered an 'ideal weight for my height'. Yay!

WOW - what you have achieved is amazing, you look brilliant in your picture by the way - you must feel so healthy and proud.

Thats fantastic news... I lost approx the same. Was: 18.1stone Now: 10.2!! It took me 4 years but I've been 10 stone for 3 mths now and yes the saggy skin is a bit depressing but its well worth it.. How tall are you??
