This is me....... Have lost two and a half stone. All by myself and i feel good. I have multiple sclerosis so i am not as active as i would like to be. The thing is there are another two and a half stones to go, and i dont think they want to leave me. Sad but there it is. My friends love me, my husband thinks i,m fab and my two scottie dogs think i am queen of the pack. I dont love me and i feel like a beached whale most of the time. THIS IS ME.

Thank you for reading,

Two and a half stone loss is amazing! Well done! That is not an easy achievement. Maybe after such a big weight loss your body is saying that's enough and is starting to plateaux. I am by no means an expert and there are people in this group who will be able to help you much more than I can, but sometimes it can be that we don't eat enough and our bodies go in to a reserve mode and that makes it hard to lose any more weight. Your diet sounds really healthy but maybe look at any hidden sugars in your food, any ultra processed foods or refined carbs. These can all sabotage our weight loss....but also look at the positives. You have done so well ! X

Well done on you're loss, I'm sure others will reply to your post.Sometimes the last amount can be the hardest.

Good luck with you journey.

Hi, Thankyou for reading my post. I know this is the last chance saloon, so i have to.

Well done on your weight loss! What plan/lifestyle are you using to lose weight? I find low carb suits me most and gets the best results.

Good morning on a sunny warm back garden.You asked my eating plan, well here it is.

No foods with added sugars.

No bread.

No potatoes.

No white carbs at all.

Loads of veg.

Plenty of water

Currys can be so tasty yet so healthy and filling.

Dressings for salads home made......yummy.

Fruit as snacks.

Think of the med diet and thats it.

Health wise, your body will thank you for it.

Learn to enjoy fresh foods cooked by you. The weight does come of nice and slowly. The best of all is your purse will thank you for it too,

Hi Pinkette, I see that you've posted your stats on today's weigh-in, so it would be best if you stick to the Friday weigh-in for future posts. That way you'll get to know the other Feel Good Friday Folk and you'll be able to follow and support each other on your journeys :)

Thanks for that. Yes the steroids can give you hunger pangs 24/7. My diet is the best i can give myself for the MS. Have got to the stage that i dont even look at cakes and sweets. How i managed that? i dont know. I have had breast cancer, and that was my wake up call. The doctor wants me down to 9stone. Have looked at photos of me at that weight and i do look ok. My body is like a beach whale when i am undressed, and that i dont like. This i think makes me sound vain, but i,m not. Thank you so much.Bronearth xx

Well done you should be proud to have lost that amount, I lost two stone and I am trying to lose more. It is not easy, but it is not worth making yourself miserable. I started to lose because of being breathless, good luck for your future.
