I saw the original Horizon programme and did think maybe it would work for me although it was against my 'no diet' ethos. After mulling it over for some time I finally bit the bullet on 12 november 2012 (the week after a big party we held).
When I started I was a smidge under 14 1/2 stone (202.5 lb)and was size 18/20 tops and 20/22 bottoms. At that point I had given up all hope of being thin but just wanted to be in a healthier weight band so I set a target of 12 stone and to be an easy size 16.There was no particular time frame.My weight loss has always been slow but about a month ago it looked like I might just about make my target for my fastiversary however the last few weeks and especially today's weigh in mean that has not happened.It is not a disaster I am in this long term. When I reach my original target I am going to set a new one on 10 1/2 stone and size 14 which is about as far as i think I can go - and I expect it will take another year!
Anyway I thought I would commemorate the occasion by posting some before and after pictures
