Lost more than I thought πŸ˜†

So I went to an appointment at the doctor's where I get weighed, my scales were saying I was 10 stone 13 lbs but when I stepped on the scales at the doctor's I was 10 stone 10lbs!!! Bought new scales (weight watcher ones) and sure as I was 10.10 πŸ˜€ only 10lbs to lose to reach my goal. Super happy. Was the boost I needed as I have had a few bad days last week. I have stayed the same this week. Need to get right into it this week..... Feeling determined.

Total lost... 18lbs

Method... Cutting calories

Morning Kirstyanne87, how lovely to have lost more than you thought:) Keep that determination going and that 10lbs will be gone before you know it :)

Thank you Lucigret. It's only 3lbs but I was so happy to see those numbers on the scale. It has been a while since I was this weight.

what do you mean 'only 3lbs', for somebody that losses so slowly, 1/4 lbs at a time if lucky - 3lbs is brilliant!!.


That's great news Kirstyanne87 very well done!

Thank you so much.


Great progress, well done, time to treat yourself to s new (smaller!) summer dress? You'll be at target in no time 😊

Thank you. I got a shock when I went dress shopping last week. I'm usually a 14/16 dress size and size 12's were looking baggy 😁 just goes to show hard work pays off.

That's fantastic, it's lovely buying smaller sizes isn't it? I still enjoy it even though I have been this size for nearly two years now.

But sizes do vary a lot, three years ago I was nearly 12st and size 14/ 16, now I am 9st 7 and mostly size 12 occasionally 10. We all have a different build regardless of weight... but you sound like you'll end up a perfect 10 well done 😊

Well done. The fact you have kept the weight off for 2 years is amazing. You hear how people lose it and then gain it all back on shortly after. So well done on that.

The idea of being a size 12 top and bottom for me was always my perfect image. I've always been bigger on top, my belly sticks out regardless of what I wear. I seem to lose all my weight from the back and my chest so I think that's why I'm fitting into the size 12 now.

My goal is to lose tummy fat which is proving harder than I thought, although the scale keeps going down my belly is staying put! 😣 That's the reason I am now aiming for the 10 stone mark. Once I get to there I will probably aim lower again. I stick to it better if I keep a realistic goal.
