So 12 weeks since I decided to lose weight


#222

Who was that nutritionist? That’s my kind of advice.


#223

Well, 11 weeks in now for me.

Last night I picked up my 10% award and have now lost over 10kg. Taking me down to 14st 5 which I am over the moon with.

3 weeks left of cup competitions and a real push to see how far I can go, next season will be a huge challenge but looking forward to it. Posted some before and after pictures on Instagram under the handle @rossmoran :slight_smile:

Bravo, excellent effort there.

Currently at 10.8kg gone in 10 weeks of this season. Need just 0.2kg for yet another 10%.
(Also 5 weeks left of our season 3 because of the bank holiday.)

I’ve gained in every break. The aim at the end of this season is to not gain in the break.

Only 9.5kg left to a healthy BMI!


#225

Spot on. Have that soup, have that salad. And have a little bit of what you fancy.

I exercise most days, even if it’s just on the exercise bike.

@Darren_Welch Thanks Darren.

Now we’re back into the proper football season the away days will be my main challenge, but if I counter that by 6 good days I’m still hoping for progress.

10.4kg to date. Healthy BMI a good way away but who knows If i stick to what I’m doing I may get there one day.Saying that, I’d look ill if I was 12st 8!


#227

Excellent effort…good on you for sticking at it…


#228

It’s most certainly my type of received advice…from the rugby coach’s school of hard knocks…


#229

I am a media whore! :joy::joy::joy:


#230

Don’t think I’ve seen the football before but that’s great all shapes and sizes on the pitch. Great advertisement for the program.


#231

Personally, I think they have done a great job on producing the video.

Anyway, I am trying to lose 11.3kg in August & September; 9 weeks @ 1.26kg a week.

Week 1
lost 1.8kg remaining 9.5kg @ 1.19kg a week.


#232

I don’t think you should. You have a very practical and balanced approach to weight loss, health and fitness. If you want a doughnut, then have one.
It is not cheating, it is not a 'cheat day" - it is something that you have accounted for. Fair play mate.

Food porn.

6 slices of ham as a base, 25g of 50% less fat cheddar cheese & 2 eggs. Oh and a bit of pepper & herbs for good measure.

Add a bit of salad and two of these made a 300 calorie breakfast.

Followed that up with chunky chicken soup, along with prunes & yoghurt for lunch.

Tonight’s dinner is a homemade butternut squash & turkey mince lasagne that works out at 277 calories per portion, with a dessert of 2 baked apples & half a tub of vanilla Breyers ice cream for a combined 250 calories.

An hour’s exercise, a packet of Frazzles & 2 Clementines makes sure that today’s calorie deficit is a huge boost to another good week.

Away from the weight loss, some other news is ‘expected’ during this week…


#234

Only just having the dessert worthy of it’s own post. Remember this is just 250 calories!


#235

Made these today from eat well for less.
Cheesecake - 150 calories


#236

150 calories each? It’s cheesecake, I’d need more than one. :smile:

This is why I calorie count, you can have literally anything.
My food is far healthier than this time last year, so anything goes…

That does remind me though, one of the other treats I am going to make when I reach my goal is the legendary mars bar cheesecake. I only ever made it once. 8 melted mars bars & 2 sliced up to decorate amongst other chocolatey delight.


#237

You know, I was way under my calories.
Stupidly low.

1743 under. Plus the 300 a day ignored.
3843 in total for the week.

How much weight lost? Zilch. Didn’t gain, but zilch. Need to up the food intake from here in…


#238

Are they home made dohnuts or?


#239

A gain for me of 0.4 this week attributed to a very heavy weekend.

Currently at 9.9kg lost, and just slipped under my 10% so goal for the last two weeks is to get that back. Only 0.26kg required to ensure I finish the season well and very confident I can do that.

Currently sat 4th in our league for MVF points so hoping to stay there or challenge for 3rd.


#240

Baked apples in cinnamon & nutmeg.
Bit healthier than doughnuts. :joy::joy::joy:


#241

Stuck on 10.8kg lost for the season, still 0.2kg away from the 10%.

For a lot of reasons, I am not caring less this week. Planning to eat around 2300 calories a day again like I did a few months ago, just to see what happens after a week.

The NHS think I should still lose weight at that calorie count. Let’s see. Either way, I then have something to cut from again.

Today is actually one year since I went to that checkup.

More importantly, tomorrow is exactly one year since I started my healthier lifestyle.

Let’s see what sort of news occurs tomorrow eh? :wink:
