#81

@Biffa94 I find if I tell myself I can’t have something the demon on my shoulder shouts all the louder that I want it. We all go off the rails sometimes especially at this time of year. I reckon go for it, and don’t feel guilty - there’ll be plenty of others eating weigh (ho, ho, ho) more calories in nibbles, crisps, nuts, puddings, pies - but enough of my shopping list :joy:


#82

Mite do. Afew ppl has telt me its ok, am not gonna get wrong…haha my 1 n only guilt free takeaway. So i mite.
Am actually right lookin forward 2 xmas probs 4 the 1st time in many many years…chilled morning, do my walk along the coast, little phonecall 2 my mate who also not doin much…then back 4 a takeway n watch the entire series on ‘sunderland til i die’ on netflix. It sounds ACE tbh


#83

Hey @Biffa94 m8. That sounds gr8 that u’r gonna enjoy it. Me 2 I reckon - got me sprouts on already :grinning:

Good on ya. Do you have an app to record what u do on the day - not that i’m doubting you… but I don’t wanna be out in the cold/wet/snow/whatever while u’r sat home eating chocs :scream:


#84

Well i downloaded this strava app cos i was after sumthing 2 count steps but then i panicked cos i thought it was gona charge me monthly, still not sure if it will, tried 2 delete it. Cudnt find a free 1 so am just gona go off google maps for how far i done, is that ok?. Do u kno any app what doesnt start a monthly sub or whateva?

Wont b sat in during the day…tried that before. It just lead 2 gettin down, havin a meltdown, binge eating or WORSE!!


#85

M8, know what u mean about sitting in and feeling sorry 4 yourself and binging. This year we can both do better for ourselves :sunny:

I use something called ‘cardio trainer’ - downloaded ages ago, so may be no longer available, but I reckon is pretty accurate, and FREE (ads to upgrade to pro, but ignore). For me, I walk about 1 metre per step, and metric seems integratated - steps/ metres / kcals - see previous posts. No worries if u can’t post in detail - I just find I get a buzz from logging how far, many calories etc I have done - just a thought it might help motivate you going forward :grinning:


#86

Not heard of strava. There are plenty of freebies out there so don’t pay unless u wanna.


#87

For real. Am not doin no self pity this year, i hav a roof over my head n food in the cupboards, some good mates so got lots 2b positive about.

Aye ill giv it a look! I probs just clock my miles this times. Yeah i dont wanna pay when theres decent free ones. I reckon that strava ones more for full on athletes or ppl who trainin hard n that, not 4 ppl like me ie. a fat bloke just tryna do some walks n the odd jog


#88

Hey everyone. I’m still here. Managed to keep the weight neutral for the final weigh in for me.
Stayed at 236. So a total of 25lbs lost. I didn’t reach 30 but I did more then I thought I could at the beginning of this year.


#89

Nice 1 mate!


#90

Go you m8, seriously - this is a time when ppl do self pity - I know I have in the past, but as you say, not this year. Its down to you (and me), no one else is gonna do it 4 us.


#91

L: 1/2 veg pizza, salad, cheese coleslaw, potato salad.
D: 1/2 veg pizza, cheese coleslaw, potato salad.
S: Popchips, 2 mini mince pies.
E: N/A
W: Over 3 litres.

Hope you’ve all had a good day, gents.

Well done 25 is a great achievement. If not for this group and the 19 weeks we may not have got to where we are. Onto pancake challenge.


#93

Saw it and thought you may be there today. Easy to go after watching and experiencing something like that. A long time ago it would have been the excuse. E


#94

100%, would’ve got a pie from the shop or two, 10 cans, a big bag of crisps and some chocolate most likely.

Then had dinner. :joy:


#95

M8 well done u. 25 lbs is mega. So well done mate. Enjoy Christmas, then let’s start again. New year - new u. Ho hum. :wink:


#96

@atb88 you are my hero m8 - I aspire to be as big a loser :smile: you have done 'kin amazing. So, so well done, you should be proper proud of what you have achieved.


#97

Thanks, mate. Definitely proud of myself for making the changes before it was too late.

2019 is going to be huge for me. I’m at a stage now where I could easily regress and I have done plenty of times before. Not this time though, not with you guys, my team at football, my friends and family all behind me.

We’ve got this! :muscle:t2:


#98

2019 is hopefully going to be anything BUT huge for you @atb88 …2019 is going to be much smaller!

Don’t think big. Think small!


#99

I meant my old man is going to appear bigger. :joy:


#100

You wish!

FYI, I never pee in public because I always end up being asked for my autograph! :grinning::grinning:
