I started MVF back in March weighing 98kg. I went from not excercising alot to regular football. I play now at least twice a week, sometimes 3 and also aim for 1 or 2 gym sessions.
The 1st season of MVF the weight flew off end at the start of the 2nd season i weighed 90kg. There was a few bank holidays interrupting the Monday night weigh in so did some weeks stay the same, but when the losses came in they were like 1.5+kg a week.
Hakf way through the 2nd season in now at 86kg. For the last month I’d say I cant seem to break the 85kg level. I now feel like I have to starve to loose weight, I use calorie counting via my fitness pal to track what i eat and have been aiming for 1400 calories a week. For the last few weigh ins my weight has fluctuated around 85kg. I am trying physically but it’s just not coming off anymore my goal weight is 80kg. I dont think this will be achieved this season and with the next season of MVF overlapping Christmas I cant see it happening then .
So training wise this is what i do.
Mon MVF game 20mins high intense game.
Tues tends to be rest if I’m sore but even on rest day 10k steps are done.
Wednesday 45min gym session.
Thursday 1h extra game of 7 a side.
Friday rest +10k steps
Saturday morning 1h extra game
Sunday rest +10k steps
And then it’s back to Monday and to have ate 1400 calories and then gain weight on the Monday is very disheartening. Feels like effort for nothing . I am grateful for the 12kg in total lost upto now but I’m struggling to reach my goal weight. I’m still classed as overweight as im only 168cm.
