Well, I started a few weeks ago and I have lost about 3lbs. My scales vary a lot, even when I keep them in the same place, but from a high of 250lb they now show 246lbs.(They even showed 244 at one point, but I'm taking that with a pinch of salt) I am aiming as an intermediate goal to get to 240lbs, and by Christmas I would like to be around 230/232lbs, which would be a stone lost in total.
I know we shouldn't be obsessed with what the scales say, but it's still nice to see a smaller number!!
I have bought a nice notebook to keep records and ideas/ notes on calories etc, I find it useful!
