End of week 11- Overweight!

Today is the end of my eleventh week and I have lost 30lbs. I now weigh 15st 10lbs which means I have shifted from Obese to Overweight in the BMI zones :-) I have also got into double figures on the metric scale, now at 99.8 kgs. Great incentive never to go back and I am now looking forward to try and reach 15 stones before I go on holiday on 24th April, I initially wanted to reach 16 stones by then so fingers crossed :-) John

Cheers Lizzy, I know 10lbs more in the next 24 days is a tough target but I am determined to get there !

Thank you Anna,

Yes the inches are coming off. I have some old clothes, where we are going to for holiday, that are size 38 inches waist so I will be really chuffed if I get into them, I nearly threw them out last September :-)

Hi John,

Wow, 30 pounds - that is fantastic!!!!  :-)  You're well into those 15's now, and you've reduced by a whole BMI zone.  That is amazing - really well done.  :-)  Double figures on the metric scale too - so many satisfying transitions.  :-)

Not long now till your holiday.

Have a great week.

Lowcal :-)

Thank you, you  can do it one step at a time, setting smaller targets on the way and suddenly you will be merely "overweight" - just like me :-) Onwards and downwards !

Well I hope to keep on the straight and narrow whilst I am away, as it is our own place where we are going, so a healthy mediterranean diet for 5 weeks, but then there is always the wine ........ :-( John

Haha 😊 Yes, there is that . . . You will just have to walk it off 😊 Or swim? Will the sea be warm enough? I go to Spain on 17th May, hoping to go in swimming without frightening the locals!! Lol 😂

30lbs - that is like giving birth to quads!  A huge weight off your back and knees - your family won't recognise you.  Certainly very inspiring for the rest of us.  You can even have your wine and kebabs so long as you swim, snorkel, climb hills and dance the night away etc ....😊

Brilliant John for reaching two more big targets, all best wishes for getting down in the 15s. Those 38 waist clothes must be calling to you, THEY WILL FIT YOU, and with all your new energy I'm sure you'll relish your time in the sun.

Thanks Ros1, I couldn't have done it without you all! The help, support and motivation of the forum members is incredible, even indirectly, by reading other posts and seeing how others are overcoming their own battles and picking up little tips to keep you going when you feel like giving up. I am now lighter than I have been for over ten years and really believe I can continue downwards to new dizzying lows :-) John

That is wonderful news. You should feel very proud of your achievement - sustainable weight loss. You will need a new profile pic! Your example helps inspire me as I am still much further back but on the same path. Already my trousers are loose and tying my shoelaces isn't such a feat. Enjoy your holiday.
