    86 kg flat this morning. 1 kg from my original goal. I think I might extend my target to 84 kg, so that I will have lost a total of 50 kg form the start.

    Well done everyone.

    Hi @Helen444, good to see you on the Friday weigh in thread. You are doing well, I know that feeling of being tempted and need to get my act together too.

    Afternoon . I weighed myself this morning - 149 lbs, same as last week. I haven't exercised much this week as work has been manic. Hopefully I'll burn off a few more calories next week and see a drop.

    We go on holiday 4 weeks today and I really want to be below 10 1/2 stone for that. Although as it's a UK holiday there's little chanel of me getting my bikini out whatever I weigh!

    Welcome @Helen444 . we all have ups and downs but support does help. Especially when you hit a plateau or feel bored with same food. Any support is good for me, its always welcome. I need all the help I can get. ;)

    @ickihun - Already had/used Orlistat about 5 years ago and It did nothing for me, except make me 'Housebound'!!! (You know why?)
    After 2 days of increased Dapagliflozin of 10mg = got a 5.6 this morning and totally never expected that! :)

    That small amount could be water. I'd say either stayed the same or lost hun. Think positive.
    Smiling uses more muscles so that alone is exercise! Has to be a winner, right? ;)

    Well done on your loss. I'm thinking of buying sports replacement salts. In 2 minds as my sweating has appeased now and foot cramping too. Worth thinking about thou ?

    Bariatric nurse and dietician seemed to be happy at my 3kg loss. Well 3.4kgs to be precise.
    Another 2kgs to lose before I can proceed for op.
    Not due for a weigh-in til mid-june now with dietician but seeing bariatric team decision makers after bank holiday.
    I think they give the ya or nay!
    Getting excited but nervous. Scary op but I just would like to skip down the street again. With no 20st+ body breaking my back.I cannot afford to wait another few yrs to get 2 stones off and still risk a similiar burn out I had a few yrs back. Then putting more back on.
    I hope I'm being realistic but even just 5 stone loss would help me enormously.
    Many with less complications can lose 10st+

    Morning. Really pleased this week - dropped by 1.6kg, my biggest loss yet. Maybe because I started intermittent fasting (skipping breakfast every day). Now at 87.1 kg
