    Hi all,
    Im new to this site and needing help losing the remaining kilos:(,
    OK ill start by introducing myself, Im a 19 yo female weighing 51 kilos. My goal weight is 48. Im around 5 foot i think. I have been on a healthy plan for 8 weeks now in which i lost 6 kilos.
    Ive gone from-
    Eating HUGE portions exp at dinner.
    No exercise apart from work which is quiet physical
    No breaky
    Not drinking hardly any water
    LOTS of CRAP foods
    Hardly any fruit or veg

    To this 8 weeks ago-
    eating smaller meals at least 6 times a day
    eating a good breakfast and a light or no dinner
    going to the gym
    walking 30 mins some days

    Stopped losing weight so added over a week ago-
    ALOT more gym classes and walking.
    Eating around 1300 cals sometimes less sometimes more
    Drinking alot of water and green tea
    Taking supplements.

    but still no change in the scales :cry:
    WHAT TO DO? IN NEED OF HELP

    Just keep going, sometimes those pesky scales don't move as you'd like them too, try upping your water if you're doing loads of exercise???? sure it'll start coming off soon, but don't give up! you've done brilliantly so far. x

    Hi Justem,

    I can't think in kilos. Do you know what you are in stones?

    Each kilo or Kg has 2.205 lbs

    so you multiply

    51 x 2.205 = 112 lbs so thats 8 stone exactly.

    What height are you Justem ?, I'd love to be 8 stone :)

    hey hon. i've just checked out your weight on a weight loss chart and at 5 foot you are at the bottom end of your healthy weight range so i don't think you should be losing much more, and this could be why the scales aren't budging if you are at a healthy weight. maybe the exercise will tone you up if you aren't happy with your body shape. with a bmi of 21.5 you should be looking good :)

    abz is right....you would be on the lower end of your BMI at 48kilos...but if it makes you feel better....:D
