I started my journey for weightloss back in march where I weighed 15.5, from march through to August, it was a rollercoaster, lose a stone put it back on, lose, gain, however I joined this forum end of August where my first weigh in was 14.4, in just a short time I have just about lost another stone, as this morning for the Ritu challenge I was down to 13.5.5, I think for me it's the support you get from this forum that's helped me a lot, it motivates me to see other people on here succeeding, so thank you all who has given me encouragement along the way, it does help 😁

    Keep up the great work .


  • Thank you Gary, I'm very motivated, doing lots of walking and started running too to link with my diet, so the scales are being kind and have not been put on the naughty step so far 🀣😁

  • I'm struggling to get last few pounds off,gained last week .body has toned up and lost my swimming ring that was round my waist .

    Have a great weekend.

    The weather's not too good ,I'll go out later.


  • Well done in your journey, the last few pounds are always hard to get off, but you feel toned so that's excellent, I'm trying not to think of the numbers on the scales too much (although it's nice to see it coming down) but I think about how I feel when I put that dress on, a couple of months ago I felt like a sausage bursting out of its skin, now I feel the curves are getting back into shape and it feels nice, my legs are my biggest problem area, so I'm hoping me doing the walk/run it will tone them over time, I still have a long way to go but I do feel better with myself in and out,

    Enjoy your weekend


  • I'm more bothered about numbers,I feel a lot better now my body is toning up.

    Off running later in this rain.

    Good luck .
