I LOST 11 STONE & 7LB

Hey All - I didn't really know whether to post this or not, but throughout my weight loss I always had a lot of help and advise from people on this & I would like to give something back by helping others out πŸ˜ƒπŸ‘πŸΎ Been maintaining for over a year & a half now!!

Wow! Well done! You look loke a completely different person! Offering to share your experiences to motivate, encourage and support others is great!

Well done for maintaining too. When I reached my goal, I went a little off the rails, but am well and truly back on them. I think maintaining is almost more difficult than losing the weight in the first place.

Hi.

Congrats. To be where you are now is a distant dream of mine. It's amazing that you've lost so much weight and have maintained it for so long.

I'm almost 20 stone. I'm at 276.6lbs, but recently gained weight, which made me momentarily lose my motivation. Did you ever experience weight gains or stalls during your weight loss journey?

It's encouraging to see somebody who's lost that much weight and also has maintained their weight loss.

Thanks for sharing.

Well done to you that is brilliant to achieve. I hope I can manage to maintain once I get to my ideal weight, I definitely don't want to put it all back on again. Hope this stays like this for you forever and you look so much better now. Well done to you πŸ‘πŸ˜€

Thankyou everyone for all your messages! I can't really preach top tips, but the best advise I can give is Set yourself a daily calorie target and live and die by itπŸ˜ƒ It took me just 10months from beginning to end! I was extremely disciplined though and in my prime did 4 hours of cardio every day! 2 hours in the morning & 2 at night. I worked out every day, birthdays, Christmas etc! I know this seems like a complete hell and for 10 months it wasπŸ˜‚ but Im more of a "short term pain for long term gain" person- although some people may prefer to pace their weight loss! When I finished my weight loss and began maintaining it took about a further 6 months to get the balance right & initially I continued loosing unintentionally. From there it took my body about a further 6 months to recover and regain lost muscle mass from the extremity of everything. Can 100% say it was worth it thoughπŸ˜ƒ

Crumbs - or probably not. What a shining example of dedication. Congratulations. I'm so glad you posted the initial message, and the follow up, it's all grist to the mill for those of us still paddling along.
