Looking for inspiration. Want to lose 10st in a year is it doable? I'm about 22 st.

6 stone.
10 stone in a year is about 3 pounds a week so doable.

Well done cherie, that is amazing. Slow and steady seems to be the way.

I am aimingfor a 5 stone loss. Have lost about 1.5 stone in anout 2 months. It is slowing down now but its shifting. I find i can exercise more as the weight goes and i feel so much better

Been watching this time next year and there are some incredible stories

I watched that too. I did wonder if they had access to facilities that the tv company paid for.

I lost 7st last year (from 17.2 to 10.2). I think aiming for 2 pounds a week is realistic if you have a lot to loose, it would be very hard to maintain a 3 pound a week weight loss goal for a whole year.

How do you lose so much so consistently?
I need to lose about 5st. It's so hard!

It is a hard slog. I basically found a way to stick to 1200 calories a day, and make sure I was doing at least 10,000 steps. Had a number of previous failed attempts before it clicked into place for me and I managed to keep going long enough.

The loss on the scales won't be linear though, and the hardest bit is keeping going when you hit a temporary plateau. But if you are sticking to plan, the weight does eventually come off.

april, how did you manage to eat only 1200 calories? i struggle with 1400

lost 2 stone last year in about three months - kept it off, constantly calorie count - 1200 a day max - I average this over a week - so If I have a night out then its banana & toast or similar for breakfast, soup for lunch and then whatever I want from the second I am outside the house!! exercise regularly, 3-4 litres of water a day - and now and again throw in a fast day. Also very little alcohol, as in only on days/nights out and if I "need" wine over and above these occasions then its a small plane sized bottle only or a pre mixed can of G&T.

Very boring - but it works!!!

I lost 8 and a half stone in 16 month, the only time i came off my plan was on birthdays, holidays and at Christmas.
So basically lived like a hermit for a year but it was worth it!
