Monday weigh in

168pounds or 12stone

So that's me

48 years, 5foot7 and at the heaviest I've ever been.

However it's a starting point and I can only praise the practise nurse this morning who said she would put me forward for the 12 week lifestyle course. Here's hoping they accept me. But if not I am not giving up. One step at a time.

On that note I am going walk the dog again, then have my tea as I am ravenous lol

How about the online Nhs 12 week plan. I started at 12st1 and am down to 11st3 so far. And way shorter than you at 5'4". It can be done!

Here's hoping you get accepted. But I'm sure you can do it anyway. Walk that dog it's the best exercise ever. Enjoy a healthy tea. I'm just about to eat spag bol with courgette spaghetti and fruit salad.

I'm about to make a quorn stir fry and scoop it in lettuce leaves instead of having rice/noodles. Half of it is making sure it's familiar foods and tasty but low in cals. Enjoy your courgetti bolognese :)
