I've just downloaded the 12 week plan, going to start on Monday. I lost 2.5 stone last year with a slimming group and have managed to keep it off since May but could really do with loosing at least another stone but I don't want to be on a diet forever! Hoping this will help me learn to eat sensibly because I can be a bit greedy at times especially with sweet stuff 😕

I'm 54, 5' 4" and currently weigh 11stone 3lbs. I do lots of walking and have a cross trainer that I use 4 times a week. I also do a kettlebell workout twice a week and try to do yoga daily.

Looking forward to meeting you all

  • Hi and welcome, Shawj :)

    Well done for losing 2.5st and maintaining that weight for 8 months, that's a terrific achievement! :)

    Go to the Pinned Posts section to the right of your screen (bottom if you're using a mobile) and take a look at the Welcome Newbie thread. If you have any questions, look at the Topics below, to see if they'll help you out, or ask on the forum. Join any, or all of our challenges :)

    We run daily weigh-in sessions and you would be very welcome to join, on Monday. The thread can be found in the Events section, to the right of the home page, bottom if using a mobile.

    Good luck with the 12 week plan and don't forget to take initial measurements and photos, as it's a great way of seeing just how far you've come, especially when the scales aren't co-operating fully :)

    Wishing you all the very best with your weight loss journey :)

  • Welcome to the forum, Shawj. You'll find lots of support and encouragement here as everyone is very supportive. Congrats on maintaining for so long. Good luck with the rest of your journey.

  • welcome and well done! I'm inspired by your exercise regime, will start brisk walking next week. Use to enjoy yoga but struggle with time now. hopefully will go back to again once my son start nursery.

  • Well done on your achievements so far, but why wait till Monday? Every day is a new opportunity, go for it! Good luck!

  • Hi Shawj,

    I am just doing the same, downloading the 12 week plan. I am starting on 10th January, no reason for the 10th, just liked the sound on it and had to pick a starting point. Good luck. Look forward to following your success story.
