Newbie in Bristol


#7

Hi @Brizzlecol

Welcome aboard mate, the help, advice and motivation shared by the members of this forum is second to none.

I know it’s a bit of a trek from Bristol(depending on which side you live anyway) but if you did want to see some manvfat football in practice we have 3 games left down here in Bridgwater over the next 3 Mondays at Bridgwater College from 7.30pm-9.30pm.
I know my team would be more than happy to meet up and talk about the difference it’s made to us.
As @admin says you can sign up now and be in the box seat when it gets launched nearer to home.

MFP is good for at least a couple of weeks to give you an idea of how much you’re going over. I’d suggest logging everything religiously for a week at least and then assessing. Also READ THIS NOW!

thanks guys, unfortunately Bridgewater is a bit of a schlep. I hope the football thing launches in Bristol soon. I have seen it’s just launching in Colchester which is where I’m from and being run by my team Col U! good stuff


#10

No worries mate, as I said there is more than enough support available on this site to help you get where you want to be.


#11

Sorry if I’m being a bit stupid but how do i get put into one of the weight loss groups on here?

Hi all I’ve joined the Bristol league, starts on 30_01_17 doesn’t it?


#22

Hi Chopa,

The registration session is the week before on the 23rd and the first match is on the 30th.

#23

THANKS Jeff, what time is registration? Do you buy a kit before or after?Sorry for all the questions!


#24

Chopa,

I have no idea yet as only just joined myself. The usual session times are 19:00 to 21:00 so I would suspect that is the same for the registration session. Regarding the kit, you can’t by a single piece of kit from the shop, the minimum order is for 5 kits so I think you order this as a group once the league kicks off. I’m just planning on wearing shorts, baggy t-shirt and astro boots for the first couple of sessions.

I can’t remember the last time a t-shirt was ‘baggy’ on me!

Thanks again Jeff see you there, I personally cannot wait to embrace this opportunity to slim down!
