Has anyone lost 11/2- 2 stone before a ‘big’ birthday.
I have one in just over a years time and would like to shift that amount of weight.
Weight dropout off after 1st baby but still struggling a couple of years after number 2. The lack of sleep/ exercise and sugar has really not helped at all but we have a much better sleeper now so no more excuses.
I had an aim to lose 1.5 stone by my 40th (Last month) and started at new year. I did very low carb to begin with and lost the first stone within about 3 months, the next bit took forever. Partly due to various things making low carbing difficult to do, but I also realised I lost more weight by mixing up low carb, medium carb and normal days. Finally got where I wanted to be a couple of weeks after my birthday. Now to make sure it doesn't slowly start creeping on again!!
I’ve not got to my big birthday yet (it’s next year!) but I had six stone to lose before then and it is the line I’ve drawn in the sand. I’m at four stone now and I’ve been using Lose It to do a low calorie diet, with a Fitbit and some exercise classes on the side. I’m making slow work of the last two stone but hoping I can get there. Trying to tell myself it’s a marathon not a sprint!
