I am starting the 12 week plan today. I have been dieting since the start of 2017, after realising I was the biggest I've ever been, and lost 10.5lb by end of February, but have hit a plateau and not lost since then. My weight has just fluctuated by 1-2lb here and there.
I need to lose weight for two reasons: firstly, I have a problem with my legs and mobility, which I know is exacerbated by being heavier. Secondly, due to my pain and the way that I feel about my body I am starting to get rather down, which is affecting many aspects of my life. Losing some weight would help both my body and my mind!
Good luck to all newbies, I will try to support where I can!
