Weight Loss for Orlando

E booked Orlando about 8 weeks ago and 6 weeks ago I'd embarked to loose weight. Just weighed in today and I've lost 5lbs this week bringing me to 12lb's in 6 weeks. It's easier than I thought it would be. I want to loose the 3st I gained on medication. Then look to loose probably another stone to be at my ideal weight for me. I am doing wii fit and walking too. Anyone else loosing weight? Needing a bit of support? Would love to chat to others x

That's fantastic.

Pop over onto the community side of the global neighbours board as I'm sure there will be others in a similar position who will be inspired by your loss.

Keep up the good work

My husband and I both lost weight before our trip this year. I lost 2.5 Stone and he lost just over 3. He was at his target but I still have another 2 stone to go. We were there for 3 weeks from 27th July and had a wonderful time.
My husband put on 11 pounds!!! I put on 5 which was bad enough. My husband has been super motivated since he got back and already lost 6 pounds. I am struggling and only lost a pound. I think once my son is back at school then we can get into our normal routine which is to walk between 5-7 miles most days.
I have to stay that I did feel so much better this year. The heat didn't really bother me atall and all the walking I did before hand really helped and we felt so much better walking around the parks. Hope to be at target before our next trip next July.
Good luck.

Hi BecksHH, I used the walking method to lose weight initially, and lost about 2 to 3lb a week along with eating better. Tried to walk between 4 - 7 miles per day (around 2 hours). Used android cardio trainer app to track this and weighed in twice a week. Hope this helps and good luck!

I lost 4 stone, gained 2 back and I'm now in the gym every night trying to get rid of a stone, lol (I was actually a stone underweight before, I took it too far).

It sounds like you're motivated and you've lost nearly a stone, which isn't easy. The hardest part is getting motivated to do it in the first place!

Well done!

Fab news! Everyone's doing really well.
We have 13 months until we go, and I'd like to lose 1 - 1 1/2 stone before we go.
I am starting (again) tomorrow to get back on track.
I try to do 30-35 mins on the cross trainer 3 times a week.
It's hard working 42.5 hours a week, and we have 2 kids both under 5 so time is limited but I want to go feeling confident with my body.
If I can lose 1 1/2 stone that would be fab as it would give me a little bit of extra weight loss to make up for what I might put on whilst we're there!
There's 7 of us going for 3 weeks so I think they'll be a lot of eating and drinking going on! LOL!
Good luck to everyone.

Hi all, myself and princessjasmine66 embarked on a weight loss journey last may. Yep we've been at it now over a year. My target was to lose 5 ston. I've now lost 6 stone all but 2 pounds. I'm now sitting in departures in Belfast waiting to board our flight. It's been a long sometimes tough journey to lose so much but I'm so glad I done it.
Princessjsmine66 is also doing really really well. She has started going to the gym with me 3 times a week plus we walk a lot more as well. I won't give details of her weigh cause she is a lady but she has done brilliantly and has embraced going to the gym and she works out like a demon when she is there. I'm so proud of her and I know without a doubt she will lose the weight.

Fabulous to hear from everyone. I lost 3.5 stone on SW in 2005 but in 2009 I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and the meds have upped my weight. So now the meds are all sorted I'm focused to loose the weight. Dh has lost 9lbs so far too.

Hoping to reach my stone before a trip to London in 11 days

I weighed myself this morning, and I'd like to get to target weight before Xmas this year.
I need to lose 10.5 kgs which is 23 lbs!
I think it works out to be 700 gms a week so that's about 1 1/2 lbs a week.
I'll be ok to start with but I know I'm gonna struggle towards the end as I'm trying to reach a target weight that I've not been for a very long time but we'll see how it goes.
I'm feeling very pleased with myself on day one as there are doughnuts and cookies at work today and I have declined!!
