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 :)

  • courgette Bolognese was delish and tonight its the sauce spiced up with chilli and bunged on a jacket potato as been busy and only just got home.

    Have a great week keep up the good work.

  • Go for it, you obviously feel ready to make the change. You are so right, take it one step at a time, no rush .

    Have a look at the NHS choices 12 week plan, it's a good sensible start with loads of advice and support.

    Good luck
