Have lost just over 1.5 stone and have 6lbs to go before I reach my goal weight. My BMI is now within a healthy range, the doctor has taken me off my blood pressure medication as BP going to low and was feeling dizzy/lightheaded. I've been off the medication now for 2 months, BP has remained normal, I'm so thrilled as been on medication for 8 years. Got a check up at docs next week just to check all OK, but checking BP myself and its within the normal range. I finished the 9 week C25k programme and carried on running 3 x a week, I now run for 45 mins at a time up and down hills! Thanks to NHS choices website with its array of information, I feel fantastic, I'm down to a size 10/12 and its a great boost buying new clothes as my old ones are far too big now. I have inspired a close friend and she has now started the C25K. (she's 66)!! My goal was to reach my target weight before my 50th birthday in August, and its looking like I'll make it! I haven't starved myself, and had eat treats and numerous meals out, even Indian) along my weight loss journey. Weight loss slowed to1lb off a week. Never thought I could lose so much weight in 4 months and at a healthy rate. I hope my story has inspired you all out there, just stay focused, and think thin and most importantly, think of all the health benefits you are gaining.
