    Hi all,

    As I am nearing BMI 25 (just over a stone to get there) I was wondering when I need to start working up the plans. I will be at BMI 25 when I weigh in at 10 stone 4lb. So, do I come off sole source when I weigh in at 11 stone 4lb? Is that the BMI 25 + 1 stone? Tis a bit confusing thats all & I dont want to be wasting hard earned muscles!

    Thanks All

    Donna

    To clarify:

    You start to move up the plans at BMI 25+1 stone. For most people this is around BMI 26/26.5.
    If you are on SS then start with SS+ for at least a week, pref 2 then up to 810.
    The 810 plan is suitable for anyone with a BMI over 20. If you wish you can stay on 810 till you near your goal then move up to 100, 1200 and so on. Recommended time on each step is 2 weeks :)

    Yes, but bear in mind that on the 1000 plan you will still probably lose a pound or two!! Then you will be on your way to maintenance :)

    it is Dogtanion! Especially as I have been on & off CD for the best part of a year. I'm in a size 14 now (the smallest I have been since I was bout 14) but I still struggle to see myself this size. I still see myself as the big person I was before iykwim. I occasionally get a glimpse of myself in the mirror & think who was that? lol. Must be a bit odd me :p

    I feel exactaly the same , I dont see myself as a size 14 until I get a glimps of myself in a shop window or something. we are more or less the same hun, we will be moving up at the same time near enough.

    Good luck hopefully we will be able to share recipes and tips.xx

    Not odd at all - I totally still do that - I have to stop myself going into Evans!! without clothes on I still see a size 24/26 - and need to get clothes on to rationalise it as actually a size 12 or sometimes a 10 on top!!! Glad I am not alone in this!!
    Its all a head thing I guess!!!:confused:
