following: sallilas's own diet
performance: losing 0.5 lb a week

I'm 42, married and have two kids - one boy , one girl. I'm a nursing assistant in a Sexual Health clinic and I also do bank shifts - earlies, days, lates and nights.
I love ballroom, latin and rock'n'roll dancing, reading, drawing, gardening and sleeping in my spare time - cos I don't get much sleep usually! And I've now discovered I love the gym too, so I'm getting even less chance for a little extra sleep now and I'm permanantly knackered!

I lost a lot of weight in 2010, but then had an accident and an operation which nearly killed me, so I couldn't be as active as I used to be for quite a while, so I piled the weight back on again. I dieted for 5months at the beginning of the year - just a low cal, low fat, sensible eating and more activity sort of diet - and got down to my goal weight of 9st (126lbs) - but I have re-gained 11lbs since I finished on the 20th May 2012, cos I've been very naughty (loads of birthdays and not as much exercise), so I'm back to it again and hope to lose those 11lbs by the end of May. :)

1st Target - 9st 7lbs by the end of February 2013.

The challenge
Glad you're looking forward to it Debbily - so am I! I will be very encouraging, but also very tough on everybody, including myself, so that we get good results. Good luck! Smile

Any one else need to lose the equivalent of another human being?
No I don't, fortunately...but WOW! You have done soooooo well. How long has it taken you? And I spose you are now determined to keep that weight off for good! It's so lovely to hear of other people's successes and it's really encouraging...esp as being a 'nurse' in a Cardiac ward, I know the difference losing that much weight can make. Congrats! Smile
