Trying hard too

3lb off losing 3 stone; we leave in 37 days, had hoped to lose 4 stone before holiday but last stone has taken ages (started Jan 2012). Now hope to hit target of 4 stone by end of the year though as long as I don't add too much on Will still be officially 'overweight' but at least I'll have worked my way out of the obese levels.

I'm doing lots of walking too - so will be fighting fit for the Disney campaign!

Well done!

I started 12 weeks ago and have lost just over 3 stone but still have a way to go until I'm at fighting weight again!

I'm trying to lose weight too. I've just joined the biggest loser fall challenge on the US side, which sounds great for motivation and support.

I have a lot to lose as i currently weigh approx 243.5lb. I go to Orlando in 18 weeks and so i'm really hoping to see a change. I've lost half a stone so far and plan to really up my diet and exercise tomorrow. Unfortunately life has been getting in the way just recently, but i won't let it hold me back xx

I have just registered with Tommy's Charity to run the London Marathon - I need a massive incentive and theres nothing quite like the prospect public humiliation to make you motivated.

I have just had my 3rd baby, and actually weigh less that i did before i got pregnant

But i have about 1.5 stone to lose to be my "ideal" wieght. Wii Fit just rung me in at 10st 10lb - I am only 5ft 1in!

4 weeks in florida from 7th Jan is another big reason for me to lose weight. followed by my BFF's wedding!!

If i cant lose weight now i never will!!!!!!

Keep it up!

My wife has just reached her target weight after a year of slimming - she has lost 9 stone!!!

I managed to lose a couple of stone myself, but I've started putting it back on again (spending a lot of time travelling on business - not good, and the wife is now giving me grief for being overweight!).

It's nice reading all the great stories on here.

I have been exercising a lot more recently. In the last two years nearly put on two stone but have lost 11lbs since end of July.

I go to Orlando in 11 days so doubt i'll lose any before then but will be keeping it up when I get back.

I feel so much better for it. I limit my calorie intake to 1200 per day. Plus lots of cardio and swimming.

Some great weight loses.

Well i started 4-5 weeks ago when we booked to go next June, so far 9lbs has been shed, but i didn't make a target, the wii fit says i'm obese but if i could get it into the overweight section first that would be a start, really need to think about what i'd like to be when i go.

Well done everyone

I've lost 1 stone since mid June and we leave in 3 weeks so I'm now in "super diet mode" which consists of a sensible breakfast (Alpen porridge), a tall Starbucks skinny latte and a "0" fat fruit yogurt for lunch and then a small piece of grilled chicken or fish and salad for dinner. I also make sure I drink at least 2 liters of water a day.

I haven't really set myself a target just as much as I can possibly do before we go
