Hi everyone,

I’ve been border line overweight since I left University but have been bouncing between 11 and 12 stone in the past couple of years, mostly at the heavier end. Currently at 11 stone 6 and to be in the healthy BMI range and need to lose 10 pounds, so that’s my key aim. Looking for encouragement and inspiration to keep going! I’ve done the first five weeks and have lost about 6 pounds but have flatlined a bit...

I am in exactly the same boat hovering between 11 and12 stone and needing to lose 10lbs.I have tried WW,s and slimming world - always get to 11st2lbs and stay there. On both those plans you can eat too much "free food" I have been advised that the only way forward is to cut calories by 6oo daily. Very hard and I am also type 2 diabetic
