I started last July by joining the NHS My Weight Matters 12 week scheme. Lots of good advice and a realistic goal of weight loss. From there I joined a gym, started regular exercise, walking, swimming cycling. I went from 15st 9lb to 14st 2lb. Now I have a new goal. I'm planning to do a wing walk for Charity in July. Weight limit is 12st 10lbs and this morning I'm at 13st 7lb. Loosing approximately 1lb a week. Got myself a Fitbit which is helping enormously. It's a long slow process as I was overweight and terribly unfit this time last year. I'm a Full Time Carer for my Mother and so free the is very limited but I manage my 30active minutes every day. To anyone who has had a wobble, who didn't loose this week, who gave into to temptation and ate cake, I say SO WHAT. Weight loss is time consuming, long term, exhausting and can take a lot of thought. Celebrate every tiny victory. Above all else, do it at your speed, do it your way and do it for yourself.
