    I don't think I have weight loss this week. I'll weigh myself in the morning. We'll see.
    I stopped r-ala supplement due to waiting for new batch to arrive. I'll restart it soon.
    Coincidence?

    Seeing locum on wednesday about hormone tests as to whether pcos is back or starting the menopause. I cannot tell. My throid is up and down thou.
    Neither wonder my weigh loss is too.

    Unfortunately I do, but I will keep my goals to losing 5kg at a time. I am 87 kg but, only yesterday I stood on the scale and was 85kg - so I have lost 2 kg somewhere

    I did not mention this loss yesterday in case it decided to return today (it didn't) .... horaahhh

    It's getting harder going of late especially as my wife had become somewhat concerned about me continuing in the way I had been regards restricting calories soo have now eased off and upped my calories with protein and fat so have lost 1Lb again this week now at 12St 2lb and am OK with that. :)

    When I consider that over six months ago when I seriously started to diet I was about 18 and one half Stone I am very happy about it.

    What an amazing 6 months you have had. Losing over a third of your starting body weight it is really a huge accomplishment. And as much as I hate ever admitting that my wife is right perhaps yours is and at 12 stone 2lb you are "there"
    Sensational!!
    Cheers

    Down 1lb from last Friday, to 10st today. I seem to be fluctuating by 1-2lbs around this weight, which is ok for me.

    Great result John, our families do get concerned when we are the mere shadows of what we had become through too much refined carb. But when we look at pictures of people when I was young in school in the 40's and 50's most of us were very slim. atb Derek

    Now down from 106.7kg 3 months ago to 94.2kg this morning which brings BMI down to 24.7. The weight's continuing to drop steadily and wondering when it's going too low - I think I look a bit gaunt, because of the sagginess left over from the weight loss, but that might be just me comparing myself in the mirror to what I've looked like for a while.

    Well done on the weight loss @ChrisSamsDad! If I remember correctly NHS guidelines is that you should get to a BMI of below 23, so you aren't too low. I found my weight just levelled out at a BMI of 21 after a steady decrease for 6 months. I was hoping to go lower, but I'm happy with that.
