I lost a stone (15 pounds to most of you) (Read 2672 times)

    Hoorah! I lost 15 pounds in my first 3 weeks back at running after an 18mth lay off. I've still got a long way to go - goal is to lose 53 pounds by Oct. Only another 38 to go!

      That is brilliant - keep up the good work! And just to be a smart arse, a stone is 14 pounds! So you've actually lost over a stone!

       

      You don't have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.

        *sigh* I'd like to be 9 stone. That sounds way cooler than 126#s. Evil grin Nice job, Purdey! Big grin

            I actually keep thinking that I should put my goal weight as 9 stone...that would be kinda funny.

              Goal wt 9 stone. Current wt. 9.6 stone. I like only having to lose 0.6 DONE...maybe I should convert my wt loss chart. Great job Purdey MTA: I just reread your post. 15 lbs in 3 WEEKS WOW. At this point I would be happy with 1.5 lbs in 3 weeks.

                I think I've found your stone, Purdey! Well, at least 10 pounds of it anyway. Roll eyes

                  Ahhh, it would have been much easier to say "I weigh almost 17 stone" when I was overweight! But yeah, I'm with you Zoomy...9 stone sounds so much nicer than a HUNDRED and 26 lbs LOLSmile It's that HUNDRED that kills me! Dead
                    Thanks guys - your support means a lot to me. The enormity of the weight loss task in front of me is a little daunting at times - but I've made a good start - in fact much better than I imagined.... but I know that those were the easy ones to lose! Big grin

                      Congratulations! Maybe all the extra running around helping your wife with the baby is contributing to your weight loss too. Yes

                        Right now I'm a few pounds beyond 10 stone. I'd like to be in the single digits... Evil grin

                          yeah, weight loss is a tough game. All I wanted was to be in the 120s. I made it and now all I want is to be below 125. What's after that? Do you find that's true for you too? I can remember thinking I'd give anything just to weigh 150 Confused Just seems like it's never enough..women and our weight issuesSmile

                            Yep. I once was down to 124. My goal at the time was 123. I was SO close...then before I knew it I was back up to 140s, which is where I have been stuck ever since (with a few brief visits to the 130s). I do remember just wanting to get into the 140s. Now that I've been here for a few years I want to be at least 10#s less. My knees would appreciate it and I think I could easily knock a half-minute or more off my pace by losing 15#s or so.

                              I don't weigh myself. I'm weird, I guess.
