Start Weight:(20 May 13) 269.0 lb
Current Weight:(14 Dec 14) 188.0 lb
Goal Weight:168.0 lb
following: Startrekker's Own Diet
performance: gaining 1.4 lb a week

[Please note, my username's nothing to do with Star Trek. I just do a lot of walking and my name means "star".]

I lost 8 stone over 14 months last year, dropping from 20st to 12st between April 2013 and June 2014. No surgery or diet gimmicks; just plenty of healthy food and exercise. I let it rise a few pounds after that but, since July, have successfully maintained at 13 st. I'm 5'8" and muscular.

I'm now going to try losing the final stone, to reach my ideal healthy weight, hopefully by Christmas.

Needing Support
To echo the excellent advice here already: surgery's not a solution - tracking, whole foods, fluids, exercise, etc is! It just takes determination, belief that it can be done, and a whole lotta patience - with the scale and with yourself. In the last 18 months, I've lost over 100 lbs and healthily, something I never thought was possible when I started. It CAN be done. There are loads of people on here to prove it and more than happy to support you, wherever possible. Feel free to look over my profile and history, and to buddy up, if I can help.
