On the pitch it was another close one. The games are getting tighter week on week and I’m seeing changes in physiques and fitness which is superb.

At this half way point a number of you may have started to see a decline in your weight loss. You are still losing weight but not at the previous numbers.
As you lose weight your metabolism declines, causing you to burn fewer calories than you did at your heavier weight . Your slower metabolism will slow your weight loss, even if you eat the same number of calories that helped you lose weight . When the calories you burn equal the calories you eat, you reach a plateau.
Don’t be discouraged, this is normal.
To lose more weight, you need to either increase your physical activity or decrease the calories you eat. Using the same approach that worked initially may maintain your weight loss, but it won’t lead to more weight loss.
So, look to where you can make some increases in your physical activity (more dog walking, more gardening, more visits to the gym etc.) and look to making more changes in your diet (less sugar?, swapping white bread to wholemeal etc.)
Double down on your efforts guys and set yourself some realistic weekly goals…above all else don’t give up
