I don't think you're a twat at all! I'm not sure why this is in the 'Almost There' section. Sasnboots is new so maybe she didn't know which section would be best for this thread. I remember when I started here and it was pretty confusing!Maybe one of the mods could move it somewhere more appropriate? That way more people will find it, which would be a good thing because it's a great question for people to answer!

My answer? It's taken me two years to lose 8 kilos. Slow? Hell yeah. But as long as I manage to keep it off in the long run I really don't care how long it takes me to lose the weight! And at least I can make others feel better about the rate of their weight loss! :lol:

With my current weight loss? It's been two weeks and 3 kilos, however I'm going to be committed to this for however long it takes.

A previous weight loss (where I did change my lifestyle, however after a survival camp, a break up, senior studies, moving out and working 90 hours a week... things just went down the drain), I lost 20kgs and it took me 12 months. I maintained it for about 4 months and then things blew up. I'm back to try again, to get that 20kgs plus the extra 35 off of me :p
Goal for 2010: Be at most 99.9kg by 31st December 2010

Final Goal: 68kgs.

It has taken me 9 and bit months to lose my weight.

The first couple of months were the hardest and I really struggled to lose weight. Then I changed my focus from weight loss to improving my health and focusing on my running and the weight has fallen off me :D
Start weight - 77kgs
Goal weight - 53kgs
Current Weight - 50.1kgs


No more weighing, no more scales. My measurement is my success at health. It's an investment I make every single day. My priority: be healthy!

9 months to lose 15.5kgs and 5.5kgs to go. Gosh HappyBella, wish I could be down to my goal weight already like you are. These last few kgs are taking for ever and I just keep sliding up and down the scale just now. I am 60.9kgs this week, was 60.3 last week, and who knows what I'll be next week - I can't wait to get into the 50's. I'll feel like I'm on the home run then!

I started seriously (as opposed to every other time I said I was going to lose weight but didn't really do anything about it) on the first of January this year....so it's taken 5 months to go from 75.5 to 69. I find it slow but in hind sight I guess 6.5 kilos in 5 months is ok.

I'm hoping it doesn't take another 5 months for the last 5 kilos, but if it does, then so be it....I'll get there eventually :P
SW - 75.9
CW - 68
Happy weight - 68 (I MADE IT!!!)
GW - 65 (for now - and until I conceive!)
