This is my first time using an online weightloss forum and I hope to be able to both seek and offer advice and motivation.
I'm in need of a kick. At 16st 5lb I am currently the heaviest I've ever weighed in my entire life (I'm 40 years old) and I can't quite believe I've let myself get to this point. I've also become unfit in the extreme. It all stems from a back injury that I had for a few years (which I've now recovered from). My weight and lack of fitness got so bad during this time that it now seems overwhelming to undo things.
My healthy usual weight is 10 to 10.5 stone. I've lost weight several times in the past (usually going from c. 13 stone to 10 stone) and have always used a combination of calorie counting (c. 1500 calories a day), eating mostly unprocessed food and lots of veg and exercise and this has always worked well for me.
So here goes. Any motivation tips from people who have managed to lose around 6.5 stone would be really welcome and hopefully I'll be in a position to be offering tips to others soon.
Look forward to chatting with you all x
