Well 12 weeks ago I started this journey, it's been a slog but I am now 2 stone and three lbs down and just scraping into the 11 stone range. NHS range tells me I should be between 8st 10lbs and 11 stone 11lbs (5 foot 8 inches) but I just can't see me ever being at the middle or lower end of that scale. I'm probably a large size ten to small twelve now so another 3 stone would be too much I think and i'd have to drastically reduce my calories and do more than 6 days exercise a week which I just feel it verging on obsessive and not healthy so i'm going to stay in the 11 stone range and maintain I think as i'm comfortable in my clothes at the moment. So today is week 13 and going to follow this plan for the next 12 weeks AGAIN to keep me on track. Just proves the plan does work if you stick to it and don't stray off track. If I can do it anyone can.
