Well done Colin. I had my second positive result on Wednesday of this week but was already on a diet. My old house was 10 minutes from the Gym but we moved last year and it is now nearly an hour. When I worked out the cost of a family membership I dropped it and bought an exercise bike which arrived at the end of July. I was 19 and a half stone. Very pleased to see a number starting with 17 stone this morning! OK, 17 stone 13lbs is still probably 4 stone above where I need to be but proud to be moving in the right direction! Low carbs and lots of exercise seems to be, for me, the way to get my weight under controlDiagnosed last week. In a rather unsatisfactory manner. (See my Bit of a Shock) thread in Newbies.
I’ve been 16st something for a while now and I know I really needed to shift at least three stone... worth noting that max weight over the last four years has been recorded at 17 1/2 stone.
Just wanted to share that today for the first time in living memory the scales showed my weight starting with 15! 15st 13 1/2lbs to be exact!
I’m not kidding myself that tomorrow it won’t be 16st something again but the trend is absolutely downwards!
