Does anyone else have a LOT of weight to lose?


I'm looking for other ladies that have a lot of weight to lose. I need to lose over 100lbs to be at the higher end of my healthy weight.

I started weightwatchers last Thursday (again!) and I'd love to find others in the same boat.

I'm feeling so determined and strong right now because its seriously affecting my mental state now. My little boy will soon be crawling and into everything and I'd like to be able to keep up with him and I want to make my older children proud.

It'd be nice to share this journey with some weightloss buddies.

Oh great tip! I'm gonna get my wii fit out and get some well needed exercise. Forgot about that!

Good luck to you too. It's so daunting having so much to lose isn't it? I'm trying to take it stone by stone rather than thinking about all the stones together!!

I'm only 5'2 and starting weight was 17st 8.5lb

I have lost just under 2.5 stone since July of last year, taking it slowly, walking most days and using my fitness pal to track everything

I don't know how much I want to lose, I a, just going to keep going and see how I feel and stop when I am at a comfortable weight for me, as opposed to what my ideal is

That's fantastic suzi. I would love to lose my weight slowly and sensibly too. I think you develop good habits that way and find it easier to keep the weight off! That's my theory anyway!!

I started Slimming World two weeks ago. I am 5'6" and my starting weight was 17 stone 1 1/2. To sit comfortably in the middle of my healthy BMI range I need to weigh 10 stone! Hahaha, I cant remember ever weighing 10 stone in my life!!!!!!! I now weigh 16.9 stone after 2 weeks of Slimming World and tweaking Hairy Dieters (Hairy Bikers) recipes.

I am taking it in half stone goals as to think I need to lose 7 stone is overwhelming and seems completely unattainable whereas with taking it in 1/2 stones, I feel like I am achieving something quite regularly (historically - I have done SW 5 times previously, my best attempt I lost nearly 3 stone).

I am doing the Couch 2 5k (C25K) jogging programme, 3 times per week with at least 30 minutes of exercise (be it walking with the buggy, dance games on the ps3 / wii etc) on at least 2 of the non-jogging days.

I am going back to work in a couple of months and need to be fit so I am having to go all out at the moment after sitting on my arse for a year of maternity leave!!!!

I have 100lb ish to lose and im struggling to get motivated at the moment. I lost 40lbs 18months agao and just gave up and its slowly crept back on plus another 15lb on top which isnt good.
I use mfp too and did well on that before but i have sciatica problems at the moment so cant get kotivated.
