Hi Again

Hi Everyone !

I have not posted for a while now (it’s been actually 4 months! 🥴)

I know I can talk here in all honesty…. But I felt ashamed!

I have been on a plateau for the last 4 months, between 11.2 and 11.4 and it doesn’t budge!

I did not want to update every week saying it’s not moving, did not feel great about myself so did not want to share that to anyone so I stopped the weigh in.

Why now you will think?

I am arriving to my 1 year anniversary journey since I started and thought you all would find the right word and help me with my motivation.

I really want to reach my next goal of 10st.

I try to kept myself busy and active in those last few months with volunteering in baking for food bank or vaccination centre while still doing the farm and my 80% part time job.

But nothing really help!

Please send me your good vibes and advices ❤️❤️❤️

Hi Lytham,

I am still doing the calories counting and I am at 1350 calories a day. I think I will have a look again on where I need to Improve and if I need to go lower maybe for a couple of weeks. x

If you're on a low level of calories like that and haven't seen any movement for four months, maybe you need to switch from calorie counting and try a different approach.

This is a straightforward plan you might like phcuk.org/wp-content/upload...

And this is an inspiring blog by a GP fatismyfriend.co.uk/

Time to try something new?

HI EllaS2020 well done for taking the plunge to come back onto the site. My weight has been yo-yoing within half a stone over the last 6 months, so I can definitely empathise with you😊’A change is as good as a rest’ so the saying goes, so have a good look around on the site to see what you think might work for you. Good luck💐
