Week 11 - My Mojo's back :) 1st 9lb Gone :)

Finally, after two or three weeks losing nothing, my body has woken up to the fact that it aint getting any more than its currently getting. Its starting to shed the lard again and that's another 5lbs gone and I have now broke the 1 and a half stone barrier. In total nearly 23lb gone since I started back in January at an average of 2lb per week. I was having problems with feeling hungry but upped the veggie intake and am feeling better for it and don't need to snack or eat now after my tea. Fish, chicken and red meat still in there but portion sizes are way down to what they used to be. Still on target for 2 stone gone by my birthday in April and hopefully 3 gone when I go on holiday to Malta in June. With the lighter nights I can then start going out on my bike and firming things up. I feel really good about myself losing this weight as I never thought I would do. But this site/club and all the fantastic people who have made supportive comments or offered advice have helped make that difference. So thank you :) Sorry to go on but i'm buzzin this morning. #ProudasPunch

I'm afraid there isn't a 1.5 stone badge, you'll have to push a wee bit harder for your 2 stone badge :)

That's a fantastic rate of weight loss. I'd be delighted if I could manage half of that reliably

Well done Rocky, I have found your post today comforting. I haven't budged in the past two weeks and don't think I'm going to this week either, I am still writing down everything, planning in advance and counting my calories which I have upped I'm in week 9 and have lost 10lbs so far. It is good to see that perseverance is paying off for you. I remember I was buzzing when I reached the 10lbs loss so can imagine exactly how you feel. Well done😀

Thanks Luci. It was really great to see the scales moving down again as I was getting disheartened. I did as people said and increased my calories but last week I put a 1lb back on. Which I didn't post because I was miffed. I went back to my 1900 cals/day this week and had a great loss. That brief increase may have given my body a shock, I don't know? but it is good to lose again. I felt like I had wasted those weeks by losing nothing but I am determined to get my weight down and wont give in after all this time and effort. I am feeling the benefits as will you. Keep up the good work and your body will learn.

Thanks Rocky, I will stick to it, I'm feeling pretty relaxed about it all this week. I didn't last week.

Ceals and kath50 encouraged me to join the happiness challenge last week. I was reluctant to be honest, but I have to say it has made me feel good to think about something else, whilst still striving on with the calorie counting.

The support from this forum is second to none:)
