    I was 153.2 lbs last Friday, and 150.8 lbs today, so a loss of 2.4 lbs over the last week. I'm hoping to get below 150 lbs in the next week.

    Morning all. Up 1.2kg this week. Not surprised as have been struggling with increased appetite this week - seems I’m going from one extreme to the other, full week of OMAD followed by a week of eating too much. Need to find a middle way.

    Morning all. From nowhere I have gained 1.5 kgs over a week and mostly over 2 days. At the same time my fbg has returned to trend as has my general bg pattern. I was not especially well or active yesterday and ate more often but had no big meal. I had thought I did not want to dip below a BMI of 22 but this morning 22.3 is a little high so hopefully all will settle to nearer the new normal. Being more active and seeing off whatever ails me should resolve things. @Goonergal I have said before that I think you may be becoming much more aware of your body making different feeding demands. I don't think they are steady state machines, certainly not diabetic ones.

    @ianpspurs and @Goonergal hugs but you’ll both balance back I’m sure by next Friday.
    I’m meanwhile continuing with my pattern of steadily eating my three small meals a day and slightly less fat - although hungrier yesterday so they were bigger - and am still happily at 9 stone 1 pound, so this pattern clearly suits me and my body. Bgs very steady generally again. I’m hoping the longer it goes on my body will cling to this weight as very happy at this weight.

    Up 0.3kg from last week - blaming that on a few very sedentary days writing reports :O - but basically still maintaining :)

    5th April 2017 I weighed 115.3 kg - BMI 39.8
    Today I weigh 65.0 kg - BMI 22.4

    @shelley262 I am slowly starting to think that I have a sweet spot around bmi 22 which suits me perfectly and the 3 meal or 2 meal and snacks routine with less fat would suit me. Interestingly, that idea came after musing on one of your posts and mulling over my figures and general impression of how I was fairing.

    Our bodies do seem to have ideas of their own and mine seems to like this new slow and steady routine that I chose because of cholesterol worries but happens to suit my own bgs and weight. Don’t want to go below bmi of 20 everyone says this suits me so keen not to dip below 9 stone. As you don’t need to lose weight just mainly maintain this may suit you too good luck......

    Morening fellow scale crushers.
    14st 12lb for me today. A loss but I don't think I posted last Friday never mind.
    Eat lots, drink lots and pay the price on the scales, who said life was kind.
    Have a good one folks.

    Well I have been slowly approaching an Overweight BMI instead of an Obese one. Last week I was 0.4kg away. This week I have lost another 0.1kg. However I have reached Overweight this week because I had an accurate height measurement done at a Research Study yesterday and I’m one and 1/2 centimetres taller than my GP record says! :joyful:
    So I am no longer Obese for the first time in around 23 years!
    Started 115kg 9th May’17 (BMI 43.5)
    Today 78.3kg 8th June’18 (BMI 29.6) :happy:
    Total lost = 36.7kg/5 stone 11lb

    8/6/18 - Morning All.

    Remain at 12 stone 12 lbs.

    (Thought I might have lost weight as been on Antibiotics and not eating as much. Just started a short course of Prednisone (Steriod) - Blood Sugars are raised too :(

    Well Done Everyone :)

    Morning, My personal experience with Prednisolone is that it raises your blood sugars and also affects your appetite, therefore your readings could be slightly askew for the hopefully short period of time that you are on them.
    Good luck.
