Here's my story. I've tried various diets over the years but have always struggled to do regular exercise. Back in 2009 I managed to get down to 17 st. Due to a job change with very little exercise needed, long hrs I was just over 23.5 st.
Last week was a wake up call, I need to motivate myself and succeed for good. I've cut out nearly all the crisps I used to eat replacing with fresh fruit. I've also started walking my 2 westie dogs at least once a day but more often twice. Just with these small changes I've already lost half a stone in just over a week.
I feel with other gradual changes I can achieve my goal. I would love to be 17 st tomorrow but I know with my current mind set I will get back to 17 st again and maybe even less. My BMI says my ideal weight is 13.5 st but I'm sure I could be healthy at maybe 15 st.
My next plan is to find a 24 hr gym so I can fit it in around my job.
Good to read so many great stories on here and wish everyone else success on thier journey to a healthier lifestyle.
