I have been on a healthy diet. I am on week 4. I have lost on average 1 to 2 pounds per week. I am 5ft 2 and weighed in at 10 stone 11 and now I am 10 stone 5.
At my heavy weight I felt dreadful really lethargic and most evenings had alcohol which I think contributed to my weight gradually creeping up.
I am aiming to get my BMI to a healthy level. My waist measured 36 it's now 34 .
I have lost weight before and piled it all back on. My worry is not being able to maintain the weight once lost a like most I love eating and drinking. My liver was at 60 and this prompted me to stop drinking.
I think the way for me to cope with this time would be to get around five pounds under my target weight to allow the odd holiday weight gain etc and then maintain the healthy weight loss this way. Does anyone think this will work and what do you think this weight should be. I am 55 years old and my job depends on me looking great. I'm fed up of wearing big knickers and black clothes to disguise my fat. I am also carrying all my fat round my tummy which is not healthy. I realise this is a long haul and not a quick fix. Will my we it loss continue if it does at this rate I will be happy. I am eating around 1000 cals per day and no alcohol but I'd like the odd glass now and then when I go out.
