Have been here so many times before as I am sure many of you have been . Striking out on that path of weight loss, again .
I have a good incentive this time round as we are travelling over to Europe and the UK on the 1st of June. ( I live in Melbourne Australia ).
I can’t remember being anywhere near 110kgs, as for decades I have been over 120kgs topping out at 140kg.
I’m at 123kg as of yesterday .
So the goal is to be at 110kg by the 1st of June . I am trying to replicate what @Darren_Welch achieved last year and lose 15 kg in 12 weeks . I have exactly 12 weeks and 3 days before we step on that plane and head to your end of the world.
It is a double edged endeavour as this kick start to 110kg will then go on to get me under the ton by Christmas 2019.
Being 52 I am trying to be careful to not go out too hard exercise wise but in saying that I don’t want to use that as an excuse for not pushing it a bit also. Guessing a fine line between both should see results and limit injury . Good weather here for the next few months so great to be outside and cycling etc .
The food issue ! Well I’m handy on the fang as most of us here are I guess . Trying to strike a balance between calorie counting but also eating cleaner less carb rich and processed foods. .
What I’m not sure of is how hard to you have to go and how do you fuel that to get a loss of just over a kilo a week ?
I’m not sure about how many calories to put in . Some food trackers say close to 2000 for my age height (190cm) but that seems way too much . I think somewhere around 1200-1500 may be better but closer to 1000 to 1200 to get this weight off pronto. Water intake say 3 laters a day .
Anyway looking forward to logging in how it goes and getting the good oil from those of you have have been here before .
Cheers All .
