Losing a stone in weight isn't necessarily for everyone, but if you know you are carrying some excess weight (more than a stone), you should be aiming to burn fat and lose a stone as a good target.
Take it steady and dont't resort to drastic changes that you won't be able to keep up, instead look to make sustainable changes to your lifestyle that will last in the long term.

“Christmas 2011, I weighed 74kg (the most I'd ever weighed and I felt horrible). Thanks to a friend persuading me to do Great North Swim 2012, I set off on a fitness regime that has stuck and become part of my lifestyle. I got down to 63kg ahead of the swim and have maintained a steady 66kg and ideal BMI ever since.”

Sinéad M 5lbs down so far this year... 9 to go to complete this challenge... a lot more than that to be back to healthy... but one step at a time. Keep up the hard work everyone! You're all marvelous :D
Mark H I weighed 92kg last summer and when I joined Tribesports I had managed to get that down to 86 which is just 350grms short of this goal, but I'll complete this when I get my weight down to 85 or lower and maintain it for over a month
Sinéad M I started the year at a round 11st. At least 1st. overweight, and could do with losing another one for good measure. I have managed to lose 3lbs so far this year, and I'm really hoping to keep this downward momentum going and get to my target weight in 2015. Keep me strong, TS!!!
Angela T Starting this today. I am up 20 pounds from last year. I exercise and eat good all week and blow it on the weekends. Today is a new day. 152.8 starting weight. Dec 22/14.
Nicole W I only have a couple ounces left for a full stone, I have been working out for a full 7 weeks now and just found this site, I will complete this at the first stone, but will re-add it for the next and so on. I have some weight to go.
Brandon G I have 2 lbs left for a full stone (as of Saturday, from my heaviest in August). I shall hopefully be able to cross this one off soon!
Lindy S Gah, sticking at 2lbs left to go for 2nd stone! Must work harder, must work harder...........
Lisa B I have officially lost one stone. I am joining the challenge to work on another 14 pounds. I know this time might be more challenging.
Lindy S 1 more lb and I reach the two stone marker. I will be comfortable with about half a stone more. :)
Lindy S 3 more lbs and I will have lost my second stone! Progress has slowed as my weight decreases. Going to keep on it, though.

Giuliana B I want to loose a stone :) determined to do so before Xmas good luck all ! Starting from tomorrow ...Good luck to all of you that are on same challenge shall we report weekly progress here?
Lilia V I'm still sneaking sweets or a small piece of chocolate but don't feel guilty. Most of my diet is now fruits and veg. The way to go to a slimmer self!
Sinéad M I lost a stone earlier this year, so I could complete now... but there's still at least another stone that needs to go, so I'll start from now and use this challenge to post my progress on getting back to a healthier weight
Lilia V My second attempt at this challenge start today....My strategy is to eat lots of fruit & veg salads, pasta and snack on crispy rye bread between meals. 1 fish and 1 red meat meals a week to keep omega 3 and iron levels topped up. Full fat milk and natural cottage cheese for calcium - a must. No cheese, cakes, fizzy drinks, sweets or big meals! Let's see how this goes...
Why not ask for some advice from other Challenge takers, or read some of the Challenge guides first?OK, I'll keep working at it!
