New Member of the 10% (lost) Club!

So last week was a little slow and disappointing, I lost 1.5 lb, ok I know it wasn't bad but I'd had a bad stomach bug for a couple of days and barely ate so I was a bit disappointed. I was also too knackered to walk much so that didn't help.

So this week I challenged myself to lose 3.5lb to get me to 22 stone and that all important 10% total loss (I hear there are some good health benefits to this).

And I am pleased to say I managed 4lb - to be honest I probably ate a little too little (on 2 days) but also did a great 10km walk on Saturday which helped. I will be back to my usual regime next week and hoping for another 2lb (my general average at present). I have a cold (one thing after another) but have managed a decent walk most nights. Hoping for 6km tomorrow.

So I have now lost 35.5lb and hit 3 targets this week:

10% total (fat) loss - woohoo!

Another 1/2 stone off.

And that all important new number on the scales - I am now 21stone 13.5lb. Anyone else wish to join me in the race to under 20 stone - say 19st 13 3/4lb??

Now only 2.5lbs to my next major target of 20% of my total desired weight loss.

Hope there are a few more losers out there ;)

Hi Sueper,

Wow, you're making excellent progress, that's really inspiring to hear you've achieved so many goals. You're getting close to your next major target of 20% off your total desired weight loss - wishing you a great week ahead.

Brilliant achievement Sueper, you have battled through your illnesses to reach these important targets. Your journey is so encouraging for me and others. Even though you have had a couple of viruses recently which has pulled you down you are doing so well to be walking so much. I had to get down to 19 stone before I felt able to start any exercise last year.

Keep on with your new healthy eating plan and I know you will achieve your new aims. One more you could add, which you will soon reach, is getting under 300lbs.

Thanks Ros :) I seem to have been stuck in a cycle of viruses this year but it isn't stopping me.

300lb is a target and getting close now. I've also just added 50lb loss too - I can't imagine having lost 50lb but that is only 14.5lb away - crazy! Cannot believe I've got this far with relative ease.

I add in kilos lost targets as well, all the more target achieved as far as I'm concerned .lol

Oh yes, kilos is a good idea but they are very big lol.

I do like to think of weight loss in bags of sugar (1kg) which means I have lost nearly 16 bags of sugar!

I am seriously considering buying the same weight of sugar as I lose (eventually) and taking a photo with it :) I will then donate it somewhere.

Love the idea of lots of different targets, can we make a list? I'm sure it would be a good motivator, certainly for me and I haven't started yet!

Hi Jan, I have lots of targets in a document where I record my weight. I have weight targets and % losses, thinking of adding dress size drops too. The more they merrier :) I put the date next to each one when I achieve it. I also have general targets of the next half stone.

Good luck.
