End of week 9 total loss 24lbs!

Good morning everyone.

Today marks the end of week 9 on the plan and I have now lost 24lbs! Also lost inches, 4 inches off my chest, 4 inches from the waist and 2 inches off of the hips :-) My clothes are feeling much better and now I am looking through them to see what I can get rid of, even my shoes are fitting better !

So with three weeks to go until the end of the 12 week plan my targets are becoming more defined:

1. Hit a target of 15 stones 10lbs - I am currently 16st 2lbs, this will then mean:

2. I would have lost over 10% of my bodyweight

3. It will take my metric weight to below the 100kg mark!

4. It will bring my BMI from out of the Obese range into the Overweight range.

So it is carry on planning and carry on gardening for me :-)

Have a good St. Patricks day everyone, sadly, no Guinness for me today :-( John :-)

  • Well done on your achievement. It just shows the plan does work. Which is reassuring(I am on week one).

  • Really great result and you worried when you stopped for a while ;) I think we all have to undergo panic mode, I did for 4 days and that was enough lol

    Onwards and downwards we go.


  • Whoop whoop !! Very well done John 😊😊😊. Very pleased for you


  • Congratulations John, good luck achieving all your goals. I totally know what you mean about the shoes thing. All my shoes are completely comfortable now - you even lose weight there!

  • Wow! Well done John...and thanks for the inspiration. I am on week 2 and was beginning to feel success is a long way away but reading your post made me see that some patience can bring fab rewards. Congratulations and happy St Patrick's Day to you too 😁

  • Fab, so very well done.

    Didn't weigh in on Monday, after having lost nothing, very annoyed, 3/4lb gone since then tho, 1 1/2lb off my highest maintain!
