    Unless you’ve had carbs treats every day I bet it won’t stick and will be off next week!

    Mine is all over too. I'm doing high protein so I guess why still not adding weight but no weight loss either. Steroid injection and using glimepiride tablets too. Sgar is still up and down not great. I need to do sticked low carb no hypo treatments hich hv glucose in. Just proteins with fat but far less calories. I'm sick of fruit yogarts but they kept the calories down but not healthy for my liver. Low calorie for me helps loose weight on low carb. I need both to be successful. And a healthy liver. I think I need to buy steaks again. Hope Tesco hv a offer on again?

    Weight 100g up on last week

    Weight 77kg
    BMI 25.4

    I've definitely plateaued - I've been hovering between 76.5 - 77.5 since Christmas.

    Not sure how I'm going to achieve these last few KG's. Increasing my running again isn't making a difference and I'm finding myself hungry and snacking more, yesterday was really bad for food - not sure if that's due to the cold weather.

    12 stone this week. Started to do some light exercise with bands as there is not much left of me now. 25 years of inactivity covererd by 5+ stone of fat and i didnt realise how much muscle wastage i got :(. Walking is not going to be enough exercise to build muscle. Hopefuly in 6 months i will be looking a bit better :)

    74.4 this morning. Still basically holding steady, which is pretty much fine for a while. Still want to lose about 3kg but no rush. Working on increasing fitness rather than rapid fat loss for a while.

    Which is lower than last, still a few kg above my low but with gym work I am not so concerned. Still fit in my clothes. So all good!

    73.5kg today. Still holding steady, I like that a lot.

    I've now lost 40kg since I started monitoring back in June last year (7 months or so). All I need to do now is ... well, nothing really. Steady as she goes.

    I’m down a bit more today at 76.4 kg (12stone)

    Which I’m okay with as a few kg above my lowest is better than the alternative, I’m still 30% smaller :)

    my trainer thinks I should put sone more on… I’m a bit scared of doing that even though I know it’d be muscle, it’s still fixed in my head

    75.5 kg, BMI 25.2

    Well after a long month of reasonably static weigh-ins I've finally seen some movement. 1.5kg down on last week which is a fairly big drop.

    Like @ultradad I need to work on building some muscle back up but first priority is to get that BMI into the green, 1kg to go.

    A wee bit of discrepancy on the scales this morning, but I may be at 72.9kg. I fully expect that to wobble around a bit over the next few days but I think the trend is downwards. I'm aiming for solid 72.something by the end of this month (February), with a final goal of around 70kg. Definitely on the slow and steady portion of this marathon.
