Weight Reducing Diet


I have finally got to grips with my weight reducing diet. After just 4 weeks, I have lost 13 and a half pounds! Annoyingly, just half a pound short of 1 stone, but still, real progress at last. I usually start losing my motivation after 3 or 4 weeks, but this result has really given me hope. One stone down, just 9 more to go!

Thank you IndigoBlue61. Yes, I'm pretty certain that badge will be mine at next weigh in. Here's to the next stone! (I find it less daunting dealing with one stone at a time. It sounds much better than 9 stone).

Hi CatlinD! You have made a very positive step joining HealthUnlocked. I am quite new on here myself. I don't know how big your mountain is to climb, but you have already started with your first step. I have another 9 stone plus to lose, but I find it is far less daunting if I concentrate on just one stone at a time. Welcome to HealthUnlocked and I wish you the very best of luck. Do let me know how you get on.

CatlinD in reply to missgemini

Well I do have 4 to five stone to lose so I will be around. Thanks for the reply as it really helps to hear about how you are getting on.


Well done missgemini What a fabulous start! You'll soon say goodbye to that pesky half pound and before you know it you'll be well into the next stone. This time is different, you've got us all rooting for you. As long as you keep going, you can only succeed.👍

Thank you so much Cressid, for your very kind comments. You are right, it is different this time. Positive comments like yours only motivates me more. I am no longer alone with my negative self worth. I have purpose now and a whole bunch of new friends to share my ups and downs.

umm, yes different this time

missgemimi . In the past I've joined S/W, W/W etc etc in the later years with no success, in fact the first 3 weeks I weighed when trying to lose weight for my own wedding I put on each week! What?????? I know crazy! This feels much more energised and positive, I like it, good luck! 🍀

Thank you so much, NoMoreJunk, knowing that really helps keep me motivated.

Wow, well done you must be very happy at your success and like you say it gives you the motivation to carry on. I'm sure that half pound will soon be gone and some more besides.

Well done. How did you do it, how did it work for you? I'm just started to count my calories and do more exercise. I feel already my relationship with food is changing for the better.

Hi I am new here, well done. How did you lose your weight if you don’t mind sharing with me .
