I am starting a vlcd today as I'm fed up with being fat! I carry the weight all over so just look like a bit of a blob at the moment because I'm as wide as I am tall. Just wondering if there is anyone the same height and weight as me that wants to be a weight loss buddy so we can help each other along and maybe have some healthy competition.

I’m 5ft 3 and nearer 12 stone - if I fit the criteria I’d love a weight loss buddy!

Are you sure vlcd is the way to go when you only need to lose a couple of stone? Seems drastic and unlikely to really help.

Yes, me!!! I'm 5ft 1" and 11st 6lbs. I need to lose 2 stones.

Hi yes I am this! I think it is about BMI 28 when I checked. I would like to lose about a stone. I am trying eating two meals a day (kind of like intermittent fasting). I have just ordered some Huel and might try using that as well.

So how are you all doing? I ditched the Huel, it was horrible! have decided anything too extreme is not for me. Going to try just eating healthy and not binging / eating too much rubbish, and exercising more. Stopping drinking as it makes me crave rubbish.

I’m 5ft 2 and 11 stone and 3 pounds
I’ve lost 20 pounds in the last 6 months by mixture of exercise and 16:8.

I feel awful. Nothing fits, a good 2 stone overweight.

I am 5ft3 and was 11 stone. I decided to lose weight after being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, I joined myfitnesspal, logged all food and set myself a limit of 1200 calories. I also increased my running.

In a year I lost 3 stone and went from a size 14 to a size 8/10, so it can be done!
