So I'm no longer trying to diet even if I still have weight to lose. However in my non-diet, I'm still kinda doing well although I think that is due to the new job. I haven't really lost weight but inches have gone.


Started at:
Bust: 47"
Underbust: 42"
Waist: 40"
Lower Waist: 46"
Hips: 45"

Then:
Bust: 43"
Underbust: 36"
Waist: 34"
Lower Waist: 39"
Hips: 40"

Now:
Bust: 41"
Underbust: 36"
Waist: 32"
Lower Waist: 38"
Hips: 40"
Arms: 12"
Thighs: 21"

Pretty damn happy with my new waist. Probably is, I'm not sure how long I'll be able to keep this job up for. :( But somehow even though I eat crap all the time, I've managed to keep my weight stable for the last three months. I keep feeling I'm cheating somehow as it isn't meant to work that way. >.<

I'm resurrecting this!

I fell off dukan for a few months after losing a stone & then not losing anymore. I didn't gain anything in the 4 or 5 months off it, but I've gone back n it as I wasn't happy being 11st. I class 11st as heavy - for me anyway. I dipped every now & again to below 11st, but always went back to 11st.

Been back on since last monday & I've lost 7lbs - I only have 3lb more to go....but I might push it & go for a total stone loss, again. Since I weighed myself & decided I needed to lose weight I've lost just under 3 stone.

I took a pic the other day:

(I took my shirt off to shave my head - figured I'd take a pic at the same time)

Measurement progress:

Chest: 37"
Waist: 32"
Lower waist: 39"
Hips: 42"
Thigh: 22.5"

^^ Early July.


Chest: 37"
Waist: 31.5"
Lower waist: 38"
Hips: 41.5"
Thigh: 22"

^^Early September.

I now measure:

Bust: 36"
Waist: 31"
Lower waist: 38"
Hips: 40"
Thigh: 21"

We have almost the same measurements :lol: Except my hips are a bit smaller, and my chest is a bit bigger!

I'm generally 38-31-38 on a good day :P

I'm still working on changing my body, more through losing fat now, I gained some weight from some meds before Christmas so I'm not too happy about that even though I'm about the same size. Trying not to weigh myself as often as I'm doing a lot of weight training and it can be deceptive. Definitely see some changes though, my legs and arms/shoulders are much more defined and smaller, but the belly is STILL the problem! :lol:

I'm generally a 12, but have been known to get away with the occasional 10 at my smallest, but never in jeans :lol: just skirts and leggings. Can usually wear a 10 top but it depends on the style for boob space space/fit, don't ask me how it all works :lol: Those are my current stats though, I'm a bit chunkier than I was 6 months ago.

You look good :mrgreen:

According the the internet I am a 12, I can actually get a pair of 12 trousers on without them cutting me in half (only tried one pair so far & they were work issue uniform trews) Being a skater style thing in my teens has stuck with me though & I'm not a fan of correct fitting trousers :lol:

Well,I now weigh 10st 4. My bust and waist are still the same but I've lost another inch from my lower waist, hips and thighs :)

Here's hoping I can now begin "maintain" phase. Tempted to push for the 10st mark though......

I'm resurrecting this! I started 4 weeks ago at 66kg, I'm aiming to get down to 60kg. I'm just below 64 at the moment, been going to the gym 5 days a week, skating between 6-10 hours a week depending on the training schedule and changed what I eat. I failed this morning by scranning a kitkat with my breakfast but gym later!

I stopped dieting after becoming too obsessed, oops, and ended up putting on everything and more, double oops. I keep meaning to start up again, but lose motivation when I think of where I was and why the hell wasn't I happy as I was. I saw a post on Facebook that Shadowthrone put up, saying you lose motivation when you only see how far you have to go, as opposed to seeing how far you've come. I'm going to try and keep that mindset from now on, and stop expecting 7lbs loss every week. :roll: I've had a gym membership burning a hole in my bank account for months, but I don't go cuz I never give myself time to. That certainly needs to stop too!

I can do this. ;)

It's very true! It inspired me too. Well I'm concentrating on gaining muscle/losing fat at the mo, so trying not to get too obsessed with the scale number. I put on a bit at the end of last year new meds/grandma died so I slipped a bit, but I've lost most of that now. A bit heavier than I'd like, but I'm working hard!

I'm going to try not to focus too much on the scale, but I know if I can see on the scale that I'm losing, I'll keep motivated. I only get about 15 minutes in the gym in the morning, since I have to catch the bus to uni. After college I'm A. Knackered and B. Needing to get work done. I don't know which to settle for. If I get up early to catch up with work, really I should be able to go to the gym in the evening without feeling pressure. But I have to either walk or get the bus, and walking will take around 40 minutes from town, or cost me £2.50 on the bus. Ugh, I can't keep wasting money and making excuses!

I'm starting the WW diet officially on Monday. Going to be a long old trek, but I thought, I don't want to reach 25 and be fat still. So I reckon in a year I could be back where I want. And by winter, I should be able to fit into my leather bomber jacket, which I haven't worn since winter 2011.

My measurements are still the same as the last time I posted. I'm gonna attempt to live on All Bran, salad & protein for the next few days. Carbs make me all kinds of bloated & confused. I don't care for it.

Thought if join this thread since I'm officially weight watching now :-)

Started weight watchers 6 weeks ago and am one pound off a stone loss! Really pleased, I'm amazed how much better I feel :-) more energy, and surprisingly enjoy making low pro point meals, it's a nice challenge.

I should do my measurements really but I know I've lost cms as my previously tight clothes are now loose. Will post some comparison pics soon!

I think I need a buddy! It's taking me a bit longer to get into the swing of things. There's a woman at work who I talk to when we're on the same shift, and she's trying to lose weight. I don't feel motivated though unless I'm actively getting motivation from someone else! Ben is losing all sorts of weight from working on a farm. Me, on the other hand, I'm just getting worse just thinking about it!

I'm your lady, Lorny (again)... I've gone from a miniscule size six up to a size 18. I can't wear jeans any more, my arms are flabby and I feel lethargic and disgusting. To complicate matters, it turns out I have PCOS. I'm going back on WW, for sure!!!

Just the woman I needed to talk to! I need to find the right balance of being healthy, and losing weight. I've done the same, and we're the same size too. If only we'd realised what we were doing the first time round before we got to that point! Give me a PM on here or Facebook or something!

Hi, is there any chance I could be included in this? I have a lot to lose- starting Rosemary Conley on Thurs next week. I also have PCOS - pretty much the shittest version of it! I have been diagnosed for years so if there is anything I can help with in that respect please ask. x

I was on weight watchers for 6 months and lost about 50 pounds. It was nice. I could still have treats and things I liked, just had to count points. The only exercise I did was walk. I had a baby in February and had gained it all back. I really need to get back on this. It's a bit depressing since I'm a couple sizes too big for everything I fit into this time last year when I was 2 and a half months pregnant!
