Weight loss journey so far

So, I have now lost 10 /11 pounds in 5.5 weeks which I am happy about. Have another 13.5 pounds to go but am almost 50% of the way there. Am very happy and feel positive that by the year end I will be back to around 9.6/7 stone. I will be then trying to loose 7 pounds to get just under 9 stone but know that last half stone will be very hard to loose. I feel it’s important to celebrate the “wins” so far to keep motivation going but to also keep focused on my target. I am also looking at fat % soon and muscle mass as wanna be trim and toned mainly rather than just weigh less. But until reach about 9.12/13 stone it’s all about the actual pounds dropping. It’s good I feel less bloated and more comfortable - all that extra weight really er weighed me down! However looking forward to the next half stone dropping when think will be dropping a dress size too 😀 x

Well done and nice and steady - hope you manage to avoid the temptations of the festive season! Even if you don't, it doesn't matter as it's a lifestyle change so you'll soon get back on track after :)

Hi, Lighter125.

I am glad you are making progress.

Yes - muscle mass and body fat percentage are much better indicators than BMI.

It seems that you know this:
