I know there are loads of weight loss threads out there but i wondered if anyone wanted a place where we could briefly own up to our gains or losses? I think it would help me if i knew that any slip had to be owned up to, but also to provide motivation when we lose some.

So here goes.

Julia T, started last week at 12 stone 11lb, lost 2lb this week so now 12 stone 9lb

Just thought i'd start with a positive. I ate lots of fruit and veg this week but we need to buy pegs

Hi there

I have been trying to loose weight since June this year. I started at 13 stone 7 lb and amnow 11stone 10.

That's the good news....the bad news is my weight loss seems to have slowed down..and now stopped For ages I was lossing 2 lb a week, then the last few weeks it has gone down to 1lb, then last week I lost NOTHING...not an ounce! and that is despite eating less and running more! So feeling a bit miffed at the moment, but hoping for more encouraging news from the scales on Friday! 2 stone still to go, so I need to keep loosing!!

Hi all,

I like the idea of a RW weight watchers thread!!

I lost 3 stone last year but have been stuck at 11 stone  since about May, I'd really like to lose another stone but my will power has been off lately.  For example today I had a normal breakfast, salad for lunch and a chicken and veg based supper, no potatoes etc.  BUT I also ate 6 Cadbury Roses chocolates and half a Manor House cake - gross (but very tasty) .  So, I really must regain my motivation and stop snacking on the crap!  New start starts tomorrow.....

Morning all

Well the meal went well so now to start losing this weight really could do with losing 2st but am weak, weak person so am really hoping that a name and same will be good for me

Is every one following a diet or a plan of some sort and would be interested in health meal recipes i try to cut down on the size of the meals i eat rather that cutting anything out as that way you don’t crave anything

 but i have to cut out the picking between the pickingI tended to eat more when feeling down or perhaps things aren’t going well will life in general the phrase comfort eating I believe

I am suffering from an injury at the moment and know the extra weight i am carrying at the moment can’t be helping so another good reason to lose the weight

Sluggish Wonder  well done to you for losing nearly 2st I have been told that there are times you will Plato and weight will not come off there is no magic solution we just have to keep plugging away am afraid but keep going what a tremendous result so far

Puffin1 3st last year what a result yes those Cadbury Roses chocolates will do that to you they sit there going eat me eat me are they in the house or did you buy them when you were out I have put a ban crisps form coming into the house and also Kellogg’s crunch nut cornflakes as the theory is if there not in the house I can’t snack on them

Lardarse so what are you at the moment

I want to lose about half a stone and have come to the depressing realisation that running and eating what I like won't achieve this (even tho it got rid of the 1st half stone)

Do you all weigh weekly or more often? Time of day?

So 11 st - want to be 10.5

Good luck everyone

14/10/2010 at 11:03

welcome  slowsal

Again one of my biggest problems is I weight every day and then get disheartened when I have not lost anything so I am going to try to just weight once a week on ether a Monday or Friday

Hi all!  I like the idea of this thread! I was 12 1/2 stone when I completed London in 2007, now 3 1/2 years and a divorce later I am 14 1/2 stone and heading for London in April 2011. I desperatetly need to lose those two stone or at least the roll around my waist!! Food isn't a problem for me I don't eat that much the problem is LAGER!!!! Hopefully I can stay injury free and start to lose as I build up my fitness again. I intend to weigh weekly on friday morning but accept as mucle builds actual weight may not be significant % body fat can be a better guide. Anyway Good luck to you all.

Lobes Welcome look forward to a weekly report on how your doing are we just posting weight loss or can we going to use it as a kind of support net work posting on good days and bad?
14/10/2010 at 13:17

Love the idea of this.

I will weigh myself first thing tomorrow morning to try to get an accurate figure, but off out to dinner tonight!

I managed to get down to 10st 5lbs for my wedding earlier this year, but unfortunately up back up to about 11st 3lbs (will confirm actual weight tomorrow).

Cheese and alcohol are my downfalls, so I think I'm going to have to go with not keeping any of them in the house.

Toby3 - Regarding the weighing yourself every day, I do exactly the same thing.  I always weigh myself after getting home from work before going out on a run.  Most people say weigh yourself no more than once a week or less but its become a bit of a habit for me, one that I need to stop!!

Anyway at the moment I weigh 13st 8lbs, well I did last night anyway, that may have changed when I get on the scales tonight.  Ideally I want to get to around 13st.  My biggest vice is beer, I don't drink during the week but I tend to have an all day session on saturdays when going to watch football which tends to ruin what I've worked off during the week.  I eat fairly well during the week aswell but having a serious look at all the little bits and bobs I shove down my gullet each day makes me realise my diet could be a lot better.

I think it'll take me a long time to get the last 8lbs off, I weighed 16st just over a year a go when I started running and now pretty much all my belly fat has gone so the weight loss has slowed right down but I like the post and will try to remember to post every week.

14/10/2010 at 14:05
Toby 3 and indeed all others, I know I will have bad days so support as well as report suits me fine! It is undoubtedly going to be a long road for me.

I've been told that weighing everyday increases the average weight people lose. I think the idea is to focus yourself on your eating and exercise goals throughout the week. I'd say that first thing in the morning is best after ablutions. My theory is that if you weigh your lightest with as few variables as possible the results should be more consistent.

I've done quite well in the past but gone back up to nearly 16 st after a 18 month period when I stopped running through injury followed by lethargy. I'm now down to 14st 11lb but I've been around that for a few months now. Getting back into running is the key for me, I find as I focus on getting fit my attitude becomes a lot healthier generally. I hope to return to doing 6 mile runs 4 times a week by the turn of the year.

Toby3 the Roses were at work, thankfully they're all gone now.  I too try to avoid eating junk by not having it in the house, the only problem is sometimes my will power slips and then I tend to eat loads in one sitting and feel really guilty.  being bored or on my own seem to be triggers for me.  My OH is out tonight so I need to stay strong not to eat more because I'm on my own.

Jon Boy - agree with the training thing, the better I am running the less I worry about eating and feeling healthy means i want to stay like that.

My plan is to weigh myself weekly and try not to at other times to avoid the daily changes.

14/10/2010 at 18:46

Hurrah! I don't feel so alone now, it really helps to know how many other people struggle to lose it!

I reckon we can post what we like. I initially thought of it as a place to post results but and support and motivation is a great idea if you ask me.

Toby fancy seeing you here! Crunchy nut cornflakes eh? And definitely only get on the scales once a week. I got on the scales before and after my long runs during marathon training and lost up to 7lb in just a few hours, so much is down to fluid. It doesn't sound like you put masses on tho considering your injury.

Sluggish Wonder is it possible that your metabolism has slowed down? I would say spend the next week writing down everything you eat just in case you are missing something somewhere. If you are eating under 2000 cals a day then perhaps you need to eat a bit more for a little while just to ward off that starvation mechanism thing we have? Well done on the 2 stone loss by the way

Puffin well done on losing 3 stone that's fab  I know what you mean about losing control! I've tried to just have a bit of nice stuff now and then but it doesn't work with wine and chocolate  Stay strong tonight, you need a distraction. If you are female how about painting your nails. Knitting? a nice soak in a bubble bath. Sorry that was very sexist, no reason not to do any of those things if you are male. Airfix model?

Ha ha Lardarse, that's a bit like me! I was always between 16 and 18 stone apart from the 2 times i got married when i managed 10 stone. Then luckily 2 and a half years ago i found running and managed to shift loads........but just that last bit to go.......

Waves to Sal. Yes it's too easy to say 'oh, i ran * miles today so i can eat that. and that. and that' isn't it!

Lobes thats great that you have a london place  I applied last year and didn't get in so did Brighton instead (with Toby) and that was so good i am doing it again next year. Do you think we should get out our tape measures as well? Although doing up my zips again will be a good indicator for me 

Corrah enjoy your meal tonight. It will be like the last supper. oooo and stilton. brie. wensleydale. mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm  sorry. hope that didn't send anyone off to the fridge

Jamie well done on your weight loss too. I have the same habit of being good all week then blowing it on saturday night.

Jon Boy that is when i get on the scales too. Well done on your weight loss, i think running makes me less likely to eat rubbish, if i run the day after a pig out i always feel blobby and that makes me crave healthy food.

Right, off to wash up now ((((((((((((takes last sip of gin and SLIMLINE tonic))))))))) and heads off

14/10/2010 at 18:53
Count me in please.  13st 3 lb.  Would like to lose at least a stone by xmas.  When dietiing I tend to weigh once a week after a run.  I eat relatively healthily but too big portions and have a sweet tooth.
14/10/2010 at 19:09
Anyone have the problem where the weight has remained the same but the inches have gone down? I was 15 stone when I started running 3 months ago, I have now lost a dress size, several several inches everywhere, but my weight is still around 15 stone. My diet has not changed hugely, but I assumed that the extra calories burnt from running would compensate....did I get this wrong?
14/10/2010 at 22:24

Julia - tonight was not too bad, I had too bigger portion of pasta but no real naughties and I went running after work so had no time for sitting around eating!

Zara - I had that when I first started running, it took ages for weight to start coming off although like you I did tone up first.  It's actually surprising how few additional calories are burnt running especially when you're starting out so aren't going very far or very fast.  It's very easy to overcompensate and not lose any weight.  Have you tries writing down everything you eat and drink for a week to see if your calories in/out are right.  I found that I had to cut down a bit more with food and start speeding up my running before the weight came of properly.

hi all new to this forum

i used to weigh myself weekly but got fed up of not seeing any real loss. now i do it fortnightly started of at 100kg a couple years ago got down to 90kg this feb but have slowly crept up to around 92kg last weigh in was tuesday at 91.5kg my aim is to get under 90kg and take it from there.

i prefer metric as it makes me feel lighter after all lugging over14st around is hard work but kg's feel lighter.

like Zara ive noticed size loss but not weight i know muscle is heavier than fat

see you in a fortnight
