    Hi Luke and welcome.

    Firstly, well done on your fabulous weight loss so far! Can’t wait to see you on Telly 😉

    I think almost everyone has a little plateau at some point. Some have it for a few weeks, some for a few months. However, if you stick to the ‘rules’ and not give up, it will start again. I was like you and had loads to lose. I lost 10st in the first ten months but then it took me almost another year to lose the other 5. I still have about a stone to go to be an ‘ideal’ weight but I’m certainly a ‘healthy’ weight now (the other stone is mostly loose skin)

    Just be kind to yourself and be as proud of you as everyone else must be at the fantastic start you have made already. Slowly, slowly, catchy monkey!! – what does that even mean?!?!

    We will all be here to help, advise and support you.

    Hi Luke,
    Stick with it, you may find that it is just your body adjusting to all the weight you have all ready lost, you may not be losing the weight but you may find that you are losing inches instead, The weight lost will kick in again just be patience and you will get there, it is a stroll not a marathon this weight lost business.

    Just re-read your post Luke. Not eating is the very worst thing you can do unfortunately. Your body goes into ‘starvation mode’ and slows down your metabolism meaning you won’t lose weight. Even if you just try eating tiny regular amounts it will improve things. Also, remember to keep hydrated for the same reason. Weight loss (and maintainance) is all about putting a regular amount of the right food in at regular intervals. I always liken it to a fire: if you put paper on a fire it burns up in 3 seconds then requires more, then more, more, more….if you put coal on it, it burns nice and steadily for ages.

    It’s all trial and error in the early stages Luke. Anyone who thinks that weight loss surgery is the easy option hasn’t done thier homework right 😉

    We are all here to help and support you so please keep in touch and let us know how you get on. I think about all you guys all the time, even when I’m not on here. We become an extended team who care for one another, in other words: friends.
