Just thought I’d drop a post in following my first four weeks at Man v Fat.
To date I have lost 6.5Kg or a Stone in old money and over 6% of my body weight and have certainly lost inches around both waist and chest and tight shirts now fit well.
I’d put this down to more of a change of mentality more than anything driven by Man V Fat. Yes I’ve made some changes to the way I eat especially at work, but I’m still enjoying my food and lifestyle at the week. (lifestyle being a nice way to say beer consumption).
With regards to the mentality change I’m talking about, I’d say that being part of a group all focusing on the same end goal has really helped me strive to want to lose weight. When I make food choices I’m driven by not only wanting to lose weight, but ensure my team does well both on and off the scales. I find that this really helps to push me on further.
In March last year I had got down to 14st 7lb, the lowest I can ever remember but piled back on the weight to my starting weight at MvF of 16st. Hoping to reach my own target of 14st by the end of the season and smash my 10%.
Does the group mentality help you?
