I am giving the 12 week weight loss program a try. I gained a lot of weight in my final year of undergraduate and during masters. This weight I struggled to lose after the masters and now I am working in academia I find activity can be low. It does not help that its very easy to work from home rather than go into the office.
Starting out I was at 17st 7lb and managed to lose 5 lbs in week 1. This seems to be working much better than other attempts. I did at one stage try Weight Watchers and that brought limited weight loss over a few months.
Feeling optimistic for the rest of the weeks.
