I am short and pear-shaped but my thighs have taken up all the slack now and the lard is spreading elsewhere!

Food diary is a good idea...    I've eaten so much rubbish...  And my portion sizes...    You'd think you're feeding a 16st rugby player...    But the crux of it is I have barely moved for 7 weeks...  that's the biggest problem for me...  and my motivation is - I don't know where at the moment.

Vague winter training plan...

Monday nights:  Run (with Rio and the girls from WRN)
Tuesday nights:  RPM
Wednesday mornings:  RPM
Wednesday nights:  Run
Thursday nights:  Swim at Cardiff Tri
Fridays:  REST
Saturday mornings:  Brick-session - RPM & Run
Sunday afternoons:  Body Pump & RPM

RPM/spinning normally works a treat in kick starting my metabolism again...  It's just ideas...  not cast in stone.  Also have a friend who is a weightlifter and happy to spot me for free weights.  Once a build muscle again my metabolism works much better, which means I'll initially gain a bit but that's fine.  He also offere to do some boxing pad-work with me which usually is a killer...

Training in the morning really helps me but I'm terrible getting out of bed on time for a 6:45am class.

Hopefully my 20 week IM schedule and giving up the booze will help to see me on the downward trend!...I really need to lose this weight...i don't want to be harpooned on the starting line in Lanza!!

Food diaries are really good.  I'm almost certainly going to re-join SW so will def be keeping a diary then

I have to find someone with callipers!!  I did all my measurements... waist, hips, bust, neck, arms, thights, calfs, even wrists... which is what most online body fat calculators ask for... and all gave me different results...    My last reading from my ideal weigt time was from a machine at the gym that the PTs use....  but I was told callippers is most reliable...?

sorry Nam xpost!

Sorry Belper...  I'm alphabetically challenged this morning... 
31/12/2007 at 13:37
Yes I think callipers are most accurate - I carry most of mine round the middle callipers mean  they can take into account the flabbier verses toned bits
31/12/2007 at 13:37
callipers is supposed to not be that reliable as you  could take it twice and get different skinfold thickness unless you're experienced at using them.
31/12/2007 at 13:39
So if an expert uses the callipers??

I lost quite a bit 2 years ago and started looking more how I wanted to look then it all seemed to go to pot, not sure why but I feel so much more confident so I want to get back to that again, but jeep going which I didn't do last time.....

This is when I was I was a bit trimmer - I want to aim for this....

I think the water displacement thing is supposed to be more accurate Maddy, but callipers are fine if an expert does them.  Can't remember where I read it though, might have been in an Anita Bean book.

Looking good Aitch
