Week 4 Man v Fat Bunbury

MAN v FAT Soccer Bunbury – Week 4 – A full grown man gone, more to come.

MAN V FAT Bunbury, it was another excellent week. it was fantastic to see all of you making the effort to be there, weigh in, and give 110% on the pitch.

This week, MAN 80 – 0 FAT … Another huge week of weight loss puts our league weight loss count at an amazing 80kg – only 4 weeks in, and that’s already the weight of one grown man that you’ve collectively lost! First on our list of 5%ers, a well-deserved shout-out goes to Attila Sebestyn (Hardley Athletic) and joining him this was Paul Harrackie and David Crum (Burnley Calories). Give them a pat on the back next week, and if you want to hear what they’ve been doing to shed the kilos, then take the time to ask what’s been working so well for them. And don’t forget, although we don’t want to be too prescriptive with our advice, I’m always here to provide as much weight loss help as you want – if you’re finding that things aren’t working quite as well as you’d like on the scales, then please use the help available anytime. We’re here to help you get the most you can out of the program.

Outstanding work one and all in pushing the league’s weight loss counter higher and higher each week. We saw massive off-pitch scores from Burnley Calories with many hitting hatricks this week, racking up 11 goals! It’s fantastic seeing the transformation week by week, as guys keep coming in looking fitter and healthier all the time.

Teamwork… One really important thing we’ve heard from coaches in the UK is that teams that communicate well (not just on the pitch) were usually the ones who did best across the season. The same seems to be starting to happen here in Bunbury, too. Don’t be shy to share your goals, your thoughts, and your secret food recipes with your teammates. If you’ve had a good week, let them know what worked; if you had a bad week, talk about what went wrong, and share ideas to shift direction and lose the weight. And, if you’ve got people in your team who are shedding the kilos, get around them and celebrate just like you would for goals on the pitch.

Cravings … This week’s challenge for many was navigating through the beer and junk food on offer aespecially with Perth Glory women playing this past weekened. We don’t want your weight loss journey to make you into a hermit who avoids social situations, so one way to help you deal with those events (birthdays, work drinks, holidays, stress with the kids!) is to come up with strategies that can help you prevent over-eating or over-drinking. Prevention is the best cure, so things like filling up before an event (with healthy food!), loading up with water during meals, and taking your time to finish your food are just some ideas that can help during those more challenging moments.

Looking forward to seeing you all in action in week 5!

Have a great week lads!

Coach Nick
