Week 8 for me

Finally after having my third child three years ago, I decided enough was enough and i started my weight loss journey 8 weeks ago. I read on the 12 week plan that you can lose up to 22lb, so that was the goal i set myself! Im 8 weeks in and ive now lost 16.5lb and 12 inches! I have finally got my wedding ring back on and I'm back in my size 12 jeans! :-) Im going to continue till the end and lose the final 5.5lb ready for my holiday in 7 weeks.

Hope this spurs on some others that are on the weight loss journey, it can be done!

Hi jo 12,

Well done. It's funny just what a buzz those little things like the ring give you!

And I bet getting those jeans on felt good!

(I was looking at some photos of 'my old fat friend', i.e. my former 106.1 Kg self, at the weekend and feeling just a tad smug!)

Good luck with the rest of your weight loss journey.


Thankyou - you too.

To be honest, ive tried all sorts of diets and have to say this one has been the best. Having that chart stuck up on my fridge has been so encouraging cause if the kids have been spuring me on!


Wow jo12 that's fantastic!

I've just started today ;) it's great to read a blog like this - light is at the end of the tunnel. I'm going to go back and read the rest of your entries now, see if I can glean a few tips ;)



Fantastic work. Well done :)


Well done! :D
