    I hit 14st 11lb but short lived.... for now. I'm delighted. I was a child last time I was in the 14st area. This weekend I'm in lockdown with household for Mr ickihun's medical procedure. So confined to back garden as neighbours can be tactile. Not a negative thing normally. Hence it may be a few weeks before I'm 14st 11lb again.
    Well done!!!

    When you have thyroid checked do they ask for a fasting and no thyroid or kelp etc before blood test? Just a thought hun. :)

    To be honest it's so long since my thyroid was checked I can't remember. I do know that it came came back as normal, no further need for tests.

    Forgot to weigh myself until this morning. Now 17 st 21/2 lb. That's about 2 lb less than the last time - about 10 days ago. Not sure how permanent that is - my weight tends to go up and down day to day. But it's hopeful. Long way to go to get to my desired weight, of course - around 10 stone.

    This morning with a lie-in I'm 94.50kgs = 14st 12lb. :) :) :)
    I was 136kg = 21½st 2yrs ago before Roux-en-y operation.
    Nearly 7st lost. I'll celebrate when I'm exactly 7st off. With a meal out. Hopefully. Hoping to be busy tomorrow regardless of weather. As I need to walk out everyday een if only to pick up a treat for 8yr old. Today I need to recharge my batteries as my legs are very weak and I used less painkiller yesterday to try and reduce them but woke in absolute agony. I won't be doing that again in a hurray. It's affected my whole body. I'm like a tin wind-up robot. Mind u I liked them. :)
    Have a lovely time weighing in and I wish everyone every success. You deserve it!

    Back to more usual 72.9kg today, I'm happy with that
    Fluctuates up and down but sticking roughly to under 73kg I'm okay with

    I know it may go up if I build muscle but that hasn't happened yet!

    I went between 0.5 to 1kg a week (Roughly 1 to 2 pounds) and it feels about right to me for sustainable change. It does creep up on you, the odd belt tightening here, noticing shirts are a little baggier

    A year down the line I'm fitting into size 32 jeans where they used to be 42 and in some clothes I'm a small, but generally medium... (I was XXL)

    But it's stable. It fluctuates a bit but in the last 6 months it is average of 73kg and it's sticking, that's the thing, no crash diet, no yo yo... It has reached a point and stopping there. That's my ideal. But no resting on laurels, have to keep on this for life, but it feels sustainable

    Slow and steady wins the race!

    Morning! Just did a quick check after the cruise and I've still lost 0.5 kg. :)

    And feeling a touch emotional right now, accidentally picked up my partners jean without noticing, they are a size 18. They fit...

    I've not been in size 18s in close to 20 years!

    Morening fellow scale crushers.

    14st 4lb, at least it's not up, not down either, we're in this for the long run.

    Stay dry, if you can.

    Not unexpected but put on half a pound this week - been having some mood issues, and with other circumstances at home, just no real get up and go to get out and walk. Given everything, I'm actually okay with only putting on that weight. Suspected it would be worse than that.

    Off on holiday this next week (only to the Norfolk coast) so although the food won't be quite as healthy, there will be a lot more walking and exercise so I am hopeful that I can lose that extra plus a bit more.
