Hi, I’m John and I’m a newbie.
I’m a 62-year-old male who has struggled with weight all my life. I am a yo-yo dieter; my lowest adult weight was 11 st 6 lbs and my highest 21 st 10 lbs (that was last week!). I seem to lose weight, put the weight and more back on, then start all over again! Not this time though – I will NOT do that again and simply must stick to a better strategy when I get there.
I do not do social media so this is a first for me but as I have a long struggle ahead, I thought I’d give it a go. I feel I need to commit to a weekly weigh-in so as I started last Saturday, the Friday one it is!
Start Weight: 21 st 10 lbs (138 kgs)
First weigh-in: 10 Oct 2020
Next weigh-in: tomorrow
I always have great successes in the first week, then the real struggle starts. It has been a hard week but I’ve been really good. Short, sharp shock tactics: 1200 cals/day and start exercising; next week I will get on a more sustainable regime.
Huge warmth to all those on any dieting path, it is very hard so take courage from successes and don’t let the odd lapse get you down – never give up!
Some advice on how the weigh-in thing works would be appreciated. 🤞💖
