I have at least 4 stone to lose, but focusing on 10lb chunks. weigh in on a monday morning as 215lb. I am 61 years young and this is my last attempt at weight loss. I am not following any particular weightloss plan. Believe you me I have been on every plan and read all there is to read. I know what i need to do.......I just do not do it !!!! Why is beyond me when i am so deperate to be fitter and healthier. looking forward to your support and to supprt others

Welcome back, sloanranger55 :)

I thought I knew all there was to know about weight loss before I arrived here too, but this post changed my thinking and helped me lose the weight healthunlocked.com/nhsweigh... maybe it could do the same for you? This supports the theory phcuk.org/wp-content/upload...

Hi, iv also followed loads of diets and seem to have spent the last few years constantly saying I'm on a diet. This time I'm not on a diet but changing my lifestyle and I seem to be much more relaxed and motivated. This group is wonderful for support and advice. My advice is if you haven't got one to get a step tracker. I got one last week and I'm walking so much more than I ever have done. I'm even walking up the stairs now to get those daily steps in ☺ good luck
