I’m definitely a serial starter. I’d like to stop doing that. As each time I come back I’m another 10lbs heavier. I need to get this right this time!

Hi guys, sorry I missed a day, it’s been madly hectic here and yes I am in the uk so usually tapping away whilst you’re all asleep! Hi to everyone I haven’t met before and I’m loving this thread already, so many great supportive and encouraging people!
So, I have a new Fitbit as of yesterday and it does this funky thing where it buzzes at 10 minutes to every hour that I’ve classed as my waking day, that’s to tell me if I haven’t walked 250 steps in that hour that I need to move it! Well I’ve been so obsessed with beating the target that I’ve well and truly exceeded that both yesterday and today and even got on my treadmill for 10 minutes walking yesterday. Admittedly that’s not much but it’s a lot more than I’ve done in about a year! Actually surprised I managed the steps today as I’ve driven 250 miles into deepest Shropshire to see the young horse I’ve bought for myself as more motivation! Horse is turning out to be absolutely stunning and when I told his breeder I was cutting down to be able to ride him she said that’s great but he’ll be well able to carry you when he’s fully grown! Could have knocked me down with a feather. I’m still dieting though. Horse riding at this size would be both dangerous for me and unfair to any horse, let alone a young one!
Either way I’m so excited about him! I can’t wait to be skinny enough to do lots of walking out with him!
Anyway, today is a full week back on it and I’m utterly delighted to be able to say that (inc water weight) I’ve lost 8lbs this week! Clearly that’s a starting week for sure and my body going into shock at the lack of calories but I’m over the moon with it!
Must get some sleep now as have another 250 mile drive home tomorrow and this hotel bed is ridiculously comfy so sleep is calling me.
Have a good Friday everyone and I’ll be back tomorrow evening (for me, morning for you guys over the pond!)

@frenchfancy2014 would you believe I'm in West Sussex? 😂 Bizarre coincidence! In answer to your question I can only assume that having been eating way too much for way too long and having a lot to lose (150lbs) to get to the very bottom of the healthy range for me, though not sure I want to go that far) is what's fuelling it. Plus I've only just started.
I'm doing partial meal replacements when I feel a trigger coming on but still having 1400 calories a day and working hard to move more, I bought a Fitbit Inspire HR to replace my broken Fitbit One and that's helping a lot. Sadly nobody will notice my 8lbs gone yet because there's so much to still go!

Living room back in better order and dogs things are back in place...... which is paramount.
Missy, what will you use the fire pit for? Amazing how heavy things are when we are the ones that have to move them. Good for you, is it finished? I am thinking not - can you update us when it is?? Smart to stop in Thunder/Lightning- some people dont pay attention.
More online "tv" then calling it a night.
Wishing all a good night.
