My weight has fluctuated throughout my adult life. In my late teens and early 20s I managed to hold 9 stone dead on. Slowly my weight crept up to 10 stone, which I managed to maintain by walking the 2.5 miles each way to work and back each day, but eating whatever I liked. Then I went back to uni in my mid-20s and began to pile on the pounds through poor diet and lack of exercise. I started doing Weight Watchers in 2005/6 when I hit more than 11 1/2 stone, and got down to about 10 1/2 stone. Since then, I've maintained between 10 - 11 stone, occasionally doing Weight Watchers when I've felt heavy.
My friend and I had a bit of a weight loss challenge going over the summer - we each wanted to lose at least a stone, and we did well to lose over half a stone each, despite giving up half way through. Since then, I've been maintaining at 10 stone dead on, but we decided to have a little weight loss challenge for the next 8 weeks, so we're looking fabulous for the Christmas party season. We start on Monday, weighing in every Monday until 6th December. My aim is to lose at least half a stone, to take me to 9 1/2 stone - any more will be a bonus! This should be easily achievable as it's less than 1lb a week, so I can even have a slip-up without worrying too much.
I'll be doing a quick update post every Monday to keep me in check - if anyone else wants to join me, you're more than welcome - it all helps with a bit of moral support!

I'll be following Weight Watchers online, and counting my points. I'll also be doing some running, walking and a few classes at the gym. Let's hope the weight comes off!
Let me know if you want to join me, and we can have a weekly Monday weigh in!
Thanks for reading! xx
