    Today the gauntlet was thrown down.

    I had a hospital appointment and I will have another one in six months.

    In six months time my BMI has to be less than 30 so that we can either qualify for IUI treatment (for infertility) and/or get on the IVF waiting list.

    I worked out how much I need to lose minimum to get my BMI under 30 and its just under 3 stone so at a minimum that should do it. I'd like to lose 4 stone and get to target but that might be too much!

    I know it's going to be hard work and I'm not even sure if I can do it! So wondered if anyone would like to join me in a long term weight loss challenge - everything's easier when you have friends with you right?

    Hopefully we can then inspire each other on to out goals and come out smiling in the end. Your target can be whatever you like - we all have different goal weights after all.

    Anyone fancy a challenge?

    Hi missy!!

    My bmi is around 29/30. I have got it down from around 37 i think.

    I've just had a failed ivf cycle in November and Will be going for another cycle in the next 3-4 months. My doctor has asked me to get my bmi below 25 for this.

    I understand exactly how you feel and am in the same boat so would be interested in helping each other out with our challenge!! I need to lose about 2 stone in 4 months so Im being really strict! I also have a food diary if you are interested xx

    Ohhhh I'm in too. Although my reason is slightly more frivolous. I have Glastonbury at the end if June so I want to be at target and maintaining. I have a sw target of 1.5 stone however I will reset that to at least 7lbs below when I get there and then reassess! It seems like it is totally doable however so many years in January I've started diets only to get to June and be at exactly the same weigh or heavier than when I began!!!!

    This is awesome - so happy that you all want to join in!

    Pastagirl - I will definitely check out your diary and I'm so sorry your last lot of treatment didn't work out :( We'll only get one go at IVF so I'm thinking the closer I can be to BMI 25 the better! We can do this! xxx

    You sound exactly like me, I read all the fantastic stories on here, everyone's acheivements and feel annoyed that I keep vowing to loose 1.5-2 stone and yet never quite get anywhere!!!

    I'll join you guys on this when I get to computer to add my name to the list. I've a lot going on this near between confirmations, communions and weddings so need to focus on looking and feeling good! I'll aim for 3 st in 6 months and then I will be within half a stone or so of my goal weight!

    In July I'll be in full swing having fun at UK and European festivals, and would love to be a bit lighter...however between now and then I have a few trips abroad, lots of festivals, birthdays, weddings, and such things...and will be surrounded by alcohol (my no1 problem)...I'll be living on the road for some of it, but thankfully now I have a van with fridge and kitchen, I can take my food to festivals so at least I've minimised the damage. I would love to have lost another 2 and a half stone by end of July!

    Hi everyone, newbie here lol!!

    Can I join please? I wanna lose 3 stone and I feel 6 months is a nice time frame for that. I go on holiday at the end of may though so I'd like to lose as much as possible before then, and the rest after (although ill probably put a few lbs on whilst there, 2 weeks all inclusive is def not the way forward when you wanna lose weight lol)

    This is my first day doing sw, so when I say I'm a newbie I don't just mean to the forum lol
