    Hi everyone, I've been floating about for a little while so thought I'd create a thread.

    I got on the scales last Thursday and was gobsmacked when I saw my weight - 327lbs. I've put on 9 stone in 7 years (that's a whole new person)!

    So I've decided to change my lifestyle... I've been calorie counting (1,400 a day) and exercising for 20 mins a day. So far, 5 days in, I've lost 7 lbs! I'm thinking most of this will be fluid but I'm absolutely chuffed as little meatballs!

    I want to lose 10 stone (140 lbs) by June 2015. I think this is a reasonable goal, 10 stone in 18 months? Has anyone else lost this sort of weight calorie counting?

    Looking forward to my weight loss journey :)

    Sounds like you've made a fantastic start. I lost 5 stones in a little over 6 months calorie counting in the first half of 2011. Unfortunately life took over a bit and I put over half of that back on.

    I'm back to shift it permanently now (plus another couple of stones), and I know that calorie counting really does work.

    Best of luck with it. You've got a really positive attitude towards it and that's half the battle. Keep watching those pounds come off :)

    Good luck to you :)

    I've had a rough few weeks - I've gained and lost over and over again (the same 2lbs) hence why I haven't updated much.

    But, I'm now 309lbs and 18lbs down in total!
