I’m late to the party but really need some motivation. I will go do the walk of shame to scales shortly.

Weighed in on Tuesday at 18st 6lbs… weighed in tonight at 20st 0.75lbs. It’ll all be fluid and the shit food still inside me but it’s a massive wake up call after a good few days eating everything.

Back on it tomorrow, feel free to abuse me if I stray. :joy:

Ok lads I’m now in. Starting off today at 261.1 up 6 from my lowest over 5weeks ago but 9 down since I came back from holidays. Just in from a walk in the heat. 38 degrees but felt much hotter.
Aim is 240 by Xmas or lower but I’ll look at 250 or below by Halloween. Big weekend coming up with bday and ufc then in Abu Dhabi.

Welcome aboard.

Just had a stack of fruit and an Alpen light bar for my lunch.

Tonight is chicken and mushroom curry and rice. All within my allowances.

Today is a no booze day for me

Back in the zone, just need to not eat anything for the next 4 hours and job’s a good’un.

B: N/A
L: Wicked Kitchen wrap, protein flapjack, 10cal jelly.
D: 3 Linda McCartney rosemary and red onion sausages, 2 potato waffles, 3 scrambled eggs, grilled tomatoes, grilled mushrooms, cucumber, salad.
S: 2 bananas, Fage yoghurt, peanut butter.
E: N/A
W: Over 7 litres + 2 alcohol free beers.

Feeling better already and I’m hoping the motivation stays with me up until Christmas at least. I know it won’t, but I’ll have to find the discipline for when the motivation drops.

Back on it again. Had a couple of boozy weekends (Bank holiday weekend and this one just gone). I drank a lot but was still sensible in the week. Not sure how but I’ve managed to lose a kilo (just over 2lb). Planning on doing my weekly shop today so bring on the healthy food.

Joined a couple of weeks late, but raring to go for this challenge… 8 weeks for me to lose 16lbs.
Have checked in on the weigh-in post and looking forward to motivating/getting motivated by the group!

I’m still here lads, just trying to keep up with posting daily in my group also. Decent start to the week for me after a bad weekend. Gave myself a bit of a kick up the ar*e Sunday night. Since then I’ve eaten a lot better. Exercise still going well

Started fine but went downhill from there… don’t mind though as it was registration at football for my 4th season… ready to go again and feeling a lot more positive than I have been this last week.

B: Overnight oats with banana.
L: Indian rice box, onion bhaji, mac and cheese with halloumi.
D: 12" vegan Subway, cookie.
S: Falafel and hummus wrap, popadoms, Yorkie chunks.
E: Man v Fat football (over 36k steps).
W: Over 7 litres + decaf black coffee, Sprite Zero.

14 weeks until the end of the season and I intend to stick to my guns without faltering except for some cheat meals here and there to keep me from going insane.

Not a bad day yesterday. Started really well but went a bit downhill with evening snacking.

Breakfast; Boiled egg
Elevenses: fibre one popcorn bar
Lunch: uncle bens sweet & sour pot, cheesestring
Dinner; lamb chop, new potatoes and mixed veg
Snacks; 5 x Oreos, space raiders, fibre one bar and wotsits
No exercise.
Total calories about 1,700.

Been sticking to the 2300 rather than 1800 tbh.
Even managed fried chicken takeaway for lunch yesterday.

Better behaviour for the rest of the week, as clearly some water retention on the scales this morning…

Right, gents… plan of action for today is overnight oats for breakfast… I’m meeting a friend in Wagamama for lunch where I’ll be having ramen and veg gyoza. Dinner will be scrambled eggs, veggie sausages or potato waffles, tomatoes, mushrooms and salad. I’ll get some steps in but nothing too intense as yesterday was killer.

I will not deviate from this. If I’m hungry, which I will be, I’ll have a banana. Gotta get back on it now as the last week has been a complete write off. Weigh day tomorrow and I’m expecting another gain which is what I deserve. Next week will be a solid loss, I guarantee you.
