I want to share with you all that I have finally passed 3 very big targets.
I started my journey 2yrs 5m ago at 22st 10lbs at that time I never imagined that I could ever reach the weight I am now, 13st 7lbs. The 3 targets I have reached in the last 2 weeks are firstly 9st lost and BMI of 30 (no longer obese) and finally 40% body weight lost. Not only have I lost a small person I have also finally found after 60+ years that I enjoy exercise. I am still happy seating reading or watching the TV but I now lovely to go for a 5+mile walk, swimmer a Kilometre and do Pilates.
It has at times been difficult to not binge but these times pass and then I can get back to health eating. At holiday time and special occasions I have mindfully decided that I will relax my eating and then get back to health eating and lose extra pounds gained. I have found that those pounds drop off again quite quickly.
I have been so fortunate to gave the support of my family and friends and over the last year the support of so many people on here.
My target for the next 3 months is to maintain my current weight on the advise of my dietitian. She feels that I need to prove to myself that I can do this as I have lost several stones in the past and then steadily put the weight back on again. I am hesitant about this but I agree with her that it's something I need to do.
I plan to start losing weight again from July and intend to lose at least another stone.
Best wishes to you all in your journeys to health.
