So 12 weeks since I decided to lose weight


#282

Cheers, I am quite annoyed with myself, let it slip in the week the little one was born and not recovered from it yet, some 6 weeks later.

Am going to try and get back under 100kg within 3 weeks. Best behaviour for Darren then.


#283

Don’t beat yourself up, use it for focus instead!

I’ll be watching this thread with intent as I start my own Man v Fat journey tomorrow night!

Season 2 , Week 2 : Minus 0.4kg, disappointed considering diet has been great and stayed off the beer.

My last week and now have 3 weeks off for various holidays/england away trip.

2.3kg for this season and 12.7kg overall. Hoping to ensure I don’t go over this seasons start weight and will remain focused


#285

Wasn’t going to do midweek football this week.

Now on the way to play for an hour.

Decent deficit on the cards today.

What is the App you use @Darren_Welch …I know you said before, but I can’t locate. Why do you find it better than MFP?..assuming you do.


#287

It’s called lose it. I was recommended it before also By a girl who lost 20kg so it works. I’m too used to MFP to switch over


#288

I tried both, just preferred the layout of Lose It.

So people who know me and readers of this epic tale will know I like a jar of ready made sauce in my cooking.

Homepride have these little timesavers at just 61 calories per quarter jar…

Bag of beansprouts, a whole red onion, a large flat mushroom chopped, half each of red/yellow/green peppers, 3 vine tomatoes chopped & you get this.

This is all 4 portions in Lose It, just so I could add up as I cooked, divide by 4 to get 140 calories per portion.

This is just a core recipe, add cooked chicken, or a small amount of minced beef, leave as it is,

Tonight I have wholegrain rice to make around 350 calories… you get the idea.

Going into the weekend, I think it’s obvious why I am expecting decent results for this week.

The Tuesday was because I played an hour at Soccerworld. Well done Darren for not eating any of the extra calories. :joy:

Have a good weekend people.


#291

New addition to my routine:

Green tea! I hear that it’s good for weight loss…


#292

Boom, we’re back on track. 3.2kg loss for the week.


#293

Smashed it! :muscle:t2:

@Darren_Welch - albeit the thread started back in November…but the thread has some activity lately I just wanna say…

  1. :clap:t4: from all the MvF community - I`d be surprised if not many ppl know you as it shows how engaged/involved you are with most forums

  2. A BIGGER :clap:t4: for the transformation you`ve had

  3. I`ll take a :clap:t4: CC @mikey_rosie1966 @mikeyrosie1966 for the goal I scored in a friendly we won against you at SGP in July! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Nah seriously, keep it up - keep doing what you do. We appreciate it (well I certainly do!), and I think you’re pretty much awesome and inspiring being you mate! :clap:t4::clap:t4::clap:t4:


#295

Oh yes @Darren_Welch. 1-0 to the Kensington boys. A clean sheet kept by our goalie and defence!!! :wink:


#296

And in the 2nd friendly, that you gave up at 4-1 down? :joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy:


#297

This thread has never stopped being active. I use it like a blog tbh.


#298

Must have missed seeing it pop up!


#299

I didn’t see/play in this so can’t vouch for it!! @mrose1711


#300

The second friendly was virtually the Pimlico League so doesn’t count :-p


#301

Of course it counts, we could only beat what was put in front of us. :wink:

For those of you who don’t know (most of you), I have known @mrose1711 for many years as we used to work together when I was down south. :+1:
