I was 12st 9 at 5ft.

I got down to a normal BMI and a size 10 which felt amazing, and then promptly fell pregnant 😂 39 weeks so then I'll be doing it all over again- but it IS POSSIBLE!

Planning is definitely key especially at the beginning. And food shop online to click and collect or have delivered makes it much easier to stick to the plan. (I always included a small treat though, a fun size bag of maltesers or similar on an evening stopped me binging on family size bars of galaxy!)

You can do it!

I'm 5 ft 5 so only a smidge taller than you and was just over 12 stone (78kg - I find imperial confusing!) a month ago. Been calorie counting for 4 weeks and lost 1kg every week. You can do this!

Aiming for 65kg

I'm the same height as you OP and weighed 15.6 stonesShock

Lost 5 stone, 5 years ago and have maintained it since.

It can be done x
