So I'm back on SW and this time feel incredibly motivated. Turning 30 in July and want to reach my target before that which is 2.5 stone. In the past 6 years I've lost about 4 stone but I know I can do this last 2.5 if I put my mind to it (inspired by another thread about 1lb a week!) much quicker than the past as before I've kind of just plodded about and not really focused.

Can anyone inspire me? Need reassurance that 2.5 stone in 6 months is a) possible and b) doesn't mean never having a flexi syn day again! X

4 years ago I lost 2.5 stone in 3 months, I had a takeaway every weigh in night and I also went to Ibiza for 2 weeks all inclusive... I was probably just very lucky but its do able :)

I've seen lots of people here who've lost that and more in a short amount of time :) I'm 100% sure it's doable. I lost a stone after 7 weeks so in theory, that means at least 3 stone in 6 months! I'm hoping I achieve that! Good luck with your loss! :)

I tend to lose weight slowly even though I stick to plan and also have quite a few STS weeks. Even so, I have just hit the 2 1/2 stone mark and started on 13th August 2011 so just under 5 months. I would say that 6 months was very doable and even if you don't quite make it you will still be a winner as you will be less than you are now!!

I'm 30 in September and want to lose 5 - 6 stone so roughly 2lb a week. Doable if I put the hard work in xx

I lost 2.5 stone in just over 7 months. In that time i went to florida for 2 weeks where i didn't stick to plan. The last few pounds did take me a month or so to lose as i was so close to my target.

Even if you dont lose the full 2.5 stone you can still make a serious dent in the target in 6 months x


Always trying!

It took me 24 weeks to loose 2.5 stone and I counted every single syn that passed my lips, I have been an angel since I started, I was just sooooooo determined to get to target for once in my life and not give up

Good luck. I think your target is doable. I have set myself a target of 45lbs loss by summer.
