New here/ motivation/weight loss


Hii everyone I've only just found this through the NHS and reading through posts I've never felt so motivated I'm 17 years old and I'm 12 stone 7. Last year I lost about 7 and a half stone and ive never felt so great and comfortable in my own skin I haven't reached my goal weight that I had wanted but that hasn't stopped me from getting back on it. I intend to lose about another stone and half and I did it last time through healthy eating and regular exercise such as long walks and short runs and long bike rides with friends but lately I lost my motivation but reading up on it on here has sparked that motivation back in me to keep trying becaue theres no better feeling than getting on the scales once a week seeing those pound come off
