Absolutely over the moon to be overweight this morning!

I was class 2 obese in February (ugh, felt terrible) and today, after 5 months of dieting, I've finally hit a BMI of 29 something and officially 'just' overweight.

Next stop - normal weight!

Well done! That’s an amazing achievement, you’ve been working so hard. Have you been calorie counting? Any tips? Keep it up!

@ComDummings it been surprisingly easy but quite boring! I had a wake up call in December on a weekend away that involved a lot of walking. My knee was hurting and I felt breathless - and it was miserable because I was trying to hide all this from my DH as really didn't want to say ' everything hurts because I'm fat!' Also had some blood tests and I'd given myself high cholesterol - all down to eating cakes etc

I also hate exercise but in February I started walking. I do between 10k -15k steps a day spread over two walks. And I've gone for good old fashioned calorie counting. This time I didn't just pluck a figure out the air - I worked out my TDEE and used the Harris Benedict formula which brought me out at 1323 cals a day. And I stick to that every day apart from one day a week when I eat 2000-2500 cals. I also eat between 12pm - 7pm but I'm not doing this with any nod towards to intermittent fasting - it's just what suits me

I couldn't do keto or low carb or anything like that because I want to be able to eat carbs tbh. So I avoid a lot of bread or pasta but will eat it if I fancy it

And that's been it really

That's amazing. I'm struggling to get on the same bus at the moment. But I'm hoping that when I do, the journey will be smooth and productive. Well done smile

Well done! I've just this week moved from obese (starting at 34.5) to overweight and it felt good! Onwards and downwards!
