A place to declare your weekly results
Yersinia - I always think it's important to give yourself times when you're not as strict as normal otherwise dieting becomes a chore. I'm going to Paris next weekend and while I will watch what I eat and drink I won't be as strict as normal. Enoy the weekend!! Why only to may to meeting with the old flame?
The weather outside is looking great for some evening running today, light wind and a little bit of cloud so it doesn't get too cold.
The may is because I haven't arranged a time yet, and it can be tricky trying to arrange things around my family.
I aim to strike a happy medium, but weekends with my sisters can be challenging, partly because I end up eating at different times to I'm used to (and needing alcohol). And because I'm only two and a bit weeks into the diet, I don't feel like I've really earned a holiday from it yet!
i've just started my diet and exercise programme today and weighed in at a embarrissing 16st 9lbs need to get down to 14 st really so alot of work to do will let you know how im getting on!
Back to work this week so food consumption went down the fruit got a hammering every time i wanted to pick good news is got on the scales today and am down to 13st so going in the right direction
No running for me the last 3 days will try and get over the gym tomorrow
Hope everyone is keeping well
First post, i took up jogging up 3 weeks ago... mostly in the gym for 30 minutes on my work break and taking on the road at the weekends
In 3 weeks i've managed to go from running 3.14km in 30 minutes to 4.04km in 30 minutes... and on the road i've been running 4.5km in around 35minutes
And to this point i've lost 10lb
Welcome to the thread - nice to meet you (virtually)
Well done on your times and weight loss - that's great. Keep it up and keep us informed. Made up for you
Have a lovely weekend
One 1lb and 0.5 inch lost must try harder next week!
Puffin 1 hope you enjoyed your run.
am off to enjoy a stir-fry with friends.
Kirk welcome to the thread well done on the 10lbs
Yersinia/Gary try not to think of it as a diet and more that you’re just cutting back on your fuel intake
Nah, it's a diet and I'm okay with that. Except that I've just arrived at my mum's and I'm a bit tiddly, and she's bought tiger bread and I can just imagine the taste and texture of it with lashings of butter.
I've... got to be strong... and try to hold on...
Well went up the gym today but just opted for a swim as my back was giving me jip when i got up and not showing any sign of freeing up and my knee was also playing up
yersinia you get on with my son if anybody get between him and a loaf of tiger bread watch out you could lose a hand
The run yesterday failed due to traffic and a lack of motivation!! Got stuck in a really bad traffic jam so got home late and tired so didn't fancy going out for a run and got stuck into the red wine instead - doh!!! Had a little bit of a hangover this morning that has passed and am trying to work up the enthusiasm to go for a run today to amke up for the missed session yesterday. Only problem is that I have been eating Haagen Dasz this afternoon and ice cream and running down work for me!! So, thus far the weekend has been a total failure diet wise, but tonorrow is another day - and I will be stronger!!
Toby - good for you for still doing something even if it wasn't the session you had planned.
Yersinia - did you win against the tiger bread??
Kirk - welcome and well done with your progress so far.
Zara - I'll be happy with 1lb and 1/2 inch after weigh tomorrow.
What's tiger bread?
80/20 rule is s good one - 100% diet would be miserable and difficult to keep up.
Kirk - great effort
Hello all ... Can I join in?
Currently at 12st7.5lbs (I know this because I joined Slimming World this week-again). I can diet and am fantastic at it, unfortunately I'm even better at putting it back on. This is the heaviest I've been despite taking up running when I gave up smoking in January and currently running 5-6m three times a week. I've lost inches but the bloody scales are so stubborn!
Weigh in is Wednesday and so far I've been ever so good this week... although there is a swiss roll bellowing at me from the kitchen. I'm surprised you can't all hear it ;0)
I did beat the tiger (bread), because I wasn't really hungry, having had a nice restaurant meal, just really tempted by the lushness of it, especially under the influence. It helped to get the temptation out of my system by venting here!
I do agree that you have to allow yourself off the leash occasionally, but just two weeks into the diet, I think that I would still be in the first flush of motivation, and not needing a break from it yet. But the social aspect of eating / celebrating with kith and kin overrides dietary requirements at weekends like this one.
@Andrew - Tiger bread is fresh, soft, white bread with a crunchy, savoury, sesame-oil infused crust. Just irresistably mouthwatering.
Yersinia well done for avoiding the tiger bread
Julia T have a nice time at Hyde Hall today make shore it a small piece of cake hope the run goes well
