We've Lost a Stone (or few!)
"Well I didn't lose a stone but I did lose 13lbs - so, near as dammit. Thank you challenge peeps for the encouragement along the way."
"I am ecstatic, today when I got on the scales I have lost one whole stone. I am very pleased as I already feel better! Another 5.6lbs to my first 10% goal - watch this space. Please celebrate with me as I am bouncing off the walls! LOL"
"Woohoooo! I have just had a measure... in 22 days I have lost 8.5cm! A bit off of my bust, mostly my waist hips & thighs - so cool to see I've toned up & lost. I'm really chuffed!"
"Excellent, it's so easy to use and it makes losing weight very achievable. I love how easy it is to update the calorie counting food diary... The challenges are a fun and easy way to incorporate exercise... with the support forums and WLR team in the background to help when you need that extra boost! Being able to see your progress and weight loss journey is so encouraging it's fantastic..."
"This is the first weight loss plan that has worked for me- it’s great! And any enquiries I make are answered very quickly and helpfully."
"A fantastic no-nonsense website that gives you the tools to create and track a healthy diet and avoid over-eating. For me this is not just a short term weight loss diet, but a way to monitor my health. Far and away the best programme I have ever signed up to."
*How Does The Lose A Stone Calculator Work?
The calculator uses your weight and gender along with other average information to work out how long it is likely to take you to lose a stone, in the quickest way whilst still maintaining healthy calorie levels. The calculator assumes you are a fairly average 'moderately sedentary' person of age 35. Individual results may vary. If you would like to see what your calorie needs would be based on your actual numbers and chosen rate of loss, you can take a free trial of the WLR tools.
* Note: The success stories published on Weight Loss Resources are written by WLR members, past and present, telling their own stories in their own words. As you will see if you read more than one or two of them, everyone's story is different and they have reached their success from a variety of starting points and lost weight at varying rates. Individual results may vary.
