@Greenballs…I had the thought overnight that this thread should be re-branded: We’ve had some welcome additions to group, but there is no actual way of telling whether ALL those who’ve joined in late have actually read and taken on board the initial premise of what started as almost a private ‘wager’ …no get placed…between you and me.
It was supposed to be ‘no holds barred’ probably harsh goading and cajoling of each other to achieve the goal. Early other joiners seemed to be putting their hands up to agree “Yes, it’s only the harsh-speaking truth and pointing out the blindingly obvious faults I’m making” type of comeuppance I’d get from a non-politically correct thread that will make me lose that weight.
A number too have come in, said ‘Can I join please?’…answered us ‘Yes’…and we’ve never +++king well heard from them again!
Well no-one’s being rude, no-one’s being politically incorrect, everyone’s being polite and it’s kind of become like a normal 30-day group. No-one’s slagged me off for only losing 1 lb in the second week and for failing to build on the 4 lb first week loss, even though I’ve knocked back some glasses of wine that I’ve already admitted will be the downfall of my personal weightloss effort.
What are your thoughts @Greenballs…and can we have a handsup as to who is still in and confirmation that you’re definitely still on for being slagged-off for NOT keeping promises made?
Here’s a couple of hometruth observations at the end of Week 2:
@Zero4 you will definitely NOT lose 30 lbs anytime soon if you state that “the calories you intake from alcohol will prove your downfall” …and yet you continue to undo good work on the exercise and food-intake front by drinking wine still in the evening (and covering it up by saying 'yes, well I AM on holiday!)
@Greenballs…htf are you going to lose 30 by Xmas at a rate of 2 lb every two weeks?
Finally: don’t get me a, there are two or three excellent efforts emerging, but there are some also-rans and a good few non-contributory lookers-on too… controversial?..the thread was SUPPOSED to be!
