Hi all , yesterday was my first day with the community and I found some of the posts / stories so inspiring and the comments so supportive and humane that I’m keen to get going. I feel accountable to you - and the fact that it’s NHS and free and based on public service ethics encourages me too.
So today is my first weigh in. ( though for the last week I’ve been doing my own private ‘ weigh ins’ and calorie cutting , rather ineffectively.
I ‘ve weighed in at 67.3 kg . Yesterday I was 72.5 and the day before 72. And day before 71.5 . So I ‘ve been fluctuating but this is an encouraging new low!
Still - at 5ft 3in - puts me in the overweight category . BMI over 26. My short term goal is to go down to 63 kg and a healthy BMI.
My long term goal is 60 kg.
So help me stick to my downward move ! And I ‘ll do what I can to help you. ( yesterday - explaining the new low , I drank a cup of diluted apple cider vinegar which I think helped me resist unhealthy snacks ; I did extra swimming and walking and stuck to fish based low calorie meals. Will stick to the regime as far as I can.
Other measurements: waist 32.5( unhealthy) hips 40
Target waist 28. Hips 36.
Feeling determined . And in solidarity with all of you. 👍💪
