I am new here but have been trying to lose weight since February this year. I was too afraid to weigh myself initially but I am guessing I was 11.5 - 12 stone I am now 10 stone and my goal weight is 8.5 stone (which was my original weight)
I started with a food based diet but I was losing weight way too slowly. I then started walking 8 miles a day 5 days a week recently ( which is what I used to do when I was younger) and started losing a kg a week!
Since the days are getting darker and I am quite hesitant walking in the mornings at dawn I have now bought an exercise bike. (£90) from argos
I totally recommend it! I burned 1000 calories today without realising it as I was well into watching tv
At this rate I hope to reach my goal weight by February 2016
Hope you guys are going well with your weight loss!
All the best
