And again, another milestone date. August 22nd is always a special day for me, it marks the date that I turned my life around, and started cutting down on "goodies". Nine years ago, August 2003, I was 13 stone ... probably more! ... and my quality of life was pretty miserable with no energy. I was told I was borderline diabetes. So I changed my eating habits. Today I'm nearly 10 stone - about half a stone more than I was this time last year, but a vast improvement from nine years ago laugh I would love to lose another half stone and keep it off over the next few months, so I can enjoy December celebrations smile

That is inspiring, even to a slow poke. I hope to be able to say something similar one of these days. Intellectually I know that I must, translating this into my everyday routine is another story.

Reading that you made that decision, lost the weight and managed to keep it off is a big help.

Didn't post anything last Sunday, so since my last update, I've dropped another 2½ to sit at 17 st 3½ pounds. That's a total of 58 pounds lost since December 1! I have 2ĵ st to go!

Yet another week at 2½ lost. Might be under 17 st next week, since I'm at 17 st 1 pound, and have now dropped 60½ pounds.

No change from last week, so still just over the 17 st mark. We'll see what happens next week.

After a week of even-ing out, down another 2½ this week to put me at 16 st 12½ pounds. Less than 2 st to go!

I had a challenge from my boss (the office got some "el cheap-o" pedometers for a walking challenge and he put one on lol**) saying he could outwalk me on a Thursday. Since I had to get off early that day, as we had cut back on hours, by the time I got to Stonebriar at 4:45pm, I was already at almost 20,000 steps. I ended Thursday at a new record (that will probably stand for quite some time lol) of 26,392 steps, or 12.1 miles. He couldn't get close to that! I crossed the 1,000 mile level last Tuesday. I took two days under six months to do that. My next goal is to do that in fewer days.

As for the weight loss, only ½ pound this week to sit at 16 st 12 pounds. I'm at about a seven year low.

**edit to add: the pedometers we got last year were the same and that's what started me even doing anything about weight loss in the first place.

Even with going a little high on Monday last week (Chili's St. Jude Donate Profits Day - ate there for both lunch and dinner to help the kids that day), I still dropped 1½ this week to sit at 16 st 10½ pounds. Now down a total of 65 pounds!

No slipups this week, and yet another 2½ this week. This week I'm at 16 st 8 pounds. I'm a mere 1½ st away from my goal now!

Am I the only one posting now? frown

Still plodding away, and still almost ten stone. I'm still happy about that, but would love to lose another half stone smile

This week did what I did two weeks ago, and have now dropped 70 pounds, sitting at 16 st 5½ pounds. I'm less than 20 away from my goal!!

I have been very absent from the forum for several weeks. We have been travelling and our live has been incredibly hectic between kids and house renovations. I am starting to think that building a house from scratch would be easier. For a little while I feared that I might end up in divorce court over the kitchen counters. We did not hire someone to coordinate the work and are finding that it is not so easy to do it oneself. We have had workers not show up and others show up when not expected. The best was when they delivered and installed the new fridge and freezer in the middle of preparations for a big dinner. It did not help that the oven bit the dust a few hours later.

Dave, congratulations on your continued progress. It is truly amazing! I have not made any real efforts lately and actually added back another kilo. Things should be a little better and I hope to get back in the swing of diet and reporting.

I'm hoping to keep myself afloat this week...am on vacation in Missouri and cannot do my usual walks this week. Will have to see.

I did drop 1½ pounds this past week, to get to 16 st 4 pounds.

I'm still hovering around the ten stone mark. This is the most difficult time for me, with the run-up to Christmas, as well as other celebrations. I'll keep on trying and start again in January laugh

I really need to lose some weight again, I got a nasty shock with my blood sugar so need to lose the weight before seeing my doctor again.

He said that I was about 80 kilos when I saw him a few weeks ago and I have lost a few pounds but I think that he took too much off for my clothes so was more than that as 80k equals 12st 8.4lb and I am about that now after losing 3 pounds. So I will declare my starting weight at 12st 8lb.

I pretty much gave up any diet and exercise this year. It's been a rough one so I think I'll try again in January.

Stick with it, rayven! It was hard for me at first too, but I kept at it, and look at where I am.

I'd love to see more post here myself. JaneMarple is quite an inspiration, and the scale was my other lol.

Another week, and another 2½ off, even with only one walk at the mall (I made up for it walking all around the airport for three days lol).

That gets me 1 st 1 pound away from goal, as I am now at 16 st 1 pound.

Even with Thanksgiving falling this week, I still managed to lose one more, to sit at an even 16 st. Over five st off now, and only one to go!!!
