    Or does anyone else experience sticking points around stone marks? As soon as I get within a pound or two of the stone mark everything seems to slow down and it takes ages to get below the stone and then carry on. :confused::sigh:

    Same here! I think it's just sods law that when you really want to just lose the last little bit to get to a certain goal/new stone it seems to be so stubborn to get off.

    Tis true. Odd isn't it. There is often 'sticking points' along the way as the body has these little setpoints, where it holds onto a weight that you probably maintained for a while in the past.

    It's odd that they often hover around the stone marks though isn't it.

    Glad it's not just me. I have now pulled away from the stone by 4 pounds, so can now push to the next half stone mark, they are much easier!!
