Hi all. I am new to this site. I am 42 year old female who is part way through a weight loss journey and change of lifestyle. I started dieting in mid-May and at this stage (early Oct) I have lost 35 lbs.
I have set myself an initial target of 5 stone to lose (though I could actually do with losing 7 to be the ideal weight for my height). Anyway, I’m halfway to the 5 stone mark so that’s a good solid start.
I have hit a little bit of a bump now not having, in net terms, lost any weight since before my holiday at the end of August. In real terms, I gained 4lbs during my two week holiday but then lost them in the two weeks after so there has been some movement within the last month but the fact remains that I weigh now what I did a month ago.
I am holding out and keeping the faith – I’m sure it will start to move in the right direction again. I am still maintaining a 1300 calorie a day intake but am going to try eating my main meal at lunchtime and a smaller snack in the evening to see if that kick starts it again.
It’s good to have found this site – looks like it will be a good support tool for when the spirits get low and hopefully we can all get inspiration and ideas from each other.
