Determined to Lose

Hi I'm new here and determined to lose weight, I have alot to lose, 8 stone . I've had high blood pressure since my early Forties (I'm 53 ) but only had to take one tablet and now I have to take two and I'm borderline diabetic. This along with my love of clothes has prompted me to do something about this excess weight I REFUSE to go up another size!! I have a holiday booked in early August. How much realisticly do you think I could lose? I need all the help I can get on my journey and I look forward to be a part of this community.

Hi, welcome. You could definitely lose 2 stone by then maybe even 2.5 which would make you feel more confident and would help with your health issues. Think how fabulous you will also feel by Xmas if you start now! Good luck, use the forum a lot to get and give support 🤞

Hi Sankath

I started on my journey on the 8th April 2017 and I have used my mini cycle each day and doing short walks and like you not snacking inbetween meals and sticking to my meal plan which I post on DD every day ( I'll probably be posting on there forever) because it helps me stay focused and I have managed to lose 1.2 stone tomorrow is my weigh in day and I am hoping I have lost another 1lb or 2lb.

KEEP FOCUSED and you'll do it
