Thanks Nam! *mwah*

I have a serious muffin top situation in about every outfit I wear but hopefully the problem will get better as the thread progresses and we all get a bit trimmer......

Maddy - what great assets you have there lady!

I'd like a pirate kit but me in lycra would not be aesthetically pleasing!

Yippee new avatars are here!

Just been for a run due to the motivation this thread has provided today - 4.5 miles and felt I could've probably added a couple to that

Can I join in too? I'm not running as much as I was in the Autumn and I'm still eating way more than I should. I've got too many clothes that don't fit at the moment and I don't want to spend money on bigger ones, I know I can do it, I've just got to get on with it.

Adding me.............

Weight: I'm not getting on the scales for 2 weeks, want to shift a little bit first (it's around 9st+)

Height: 5.1

Size: Still squeezing into old size 10 clothes, but anything new for the 'bottom half' is 12

Target: 8st & size 8.

Healthy eating is hard for me cause it takes planning & organisation. My job is 'mobile' so I often get up early & skip breakfast (gets me an extra 5 minutes in bed) - this means I grab something, normally rubbish, from a petrol station. Lunch: if I haven't been organised enough to do my soup it's back to a petrol station. I'm then starving when I get home cause I've had nothing decent during the day - so quick snacking on rubbish from the cupboard!!

Training is not a problem, consists of
Monday: swimming with Shires Triers
Tuesday: circuits
Wednesday: running club
Thursday: running
Friday: rest (swimming from next week)
Saturday: run or bike
Sunday: run or bike

BTW a food diary is a FAB way of keeping track of what you've eaten.  I've only been doing one for four days but it's amazing how much I can eat but still think I had a 'lean' day. 

So what do we do?  Log in every so often with our recorded losses or what?

Where are we going to post 'before' pics? I don't want everyone seeing my lard. I can suck in my gut but not my thighs! I had to tuck my tummy into my jeans this morning to stop it sticking out

I'm 5.3 and 10 stone 11 according to the scales this morning. I'm a size 12 but sometimes wear a 10 on the top depending on the shop.

Ta BB - I really really enjoyed it, even the monster hills I sometimes hate.

Ostrich, course you can join, it's a free-for-all!

Pea, I probs need to lose the same as you, in fact, probably more!

KKD - I guess we just use the thread as we see fit, post when you want about what you've lost, how it's going, good/bad days. I think it will be good motivation. I will admit I do need motivation from other people!

hmmm, maybe I should do a food diary .  Will start tomorrow!  I am aiming to lose 2.5 by 17 December as that is when my bro is getting married.  Also will do the no alcohol thing which helps me cos I eat allsorts when I'm drunk!   Just drink on special occasions.

ooohhh this is gonna be fun

kk - u can be an advisor and supporter!

Lou Lou, I might only post my before picture when I don't look like that anymore and can see a difference. I AM going to do one though so I can see the progress

I want to lose 25 stone by drinking a milkshake with every meal.

Back from the gym - was a great session.  I'm training for the rowing trials at my uni which is who can cover the most distance in 20 minutes.  The last trial was over ten minutes and I just missed out on a place with a time of 1:59 average for 500 metres. Today I did 2:01 for 500 metres but that means I'm only a smidge slower maintaining the pace over double the time, so very happy with that.

Total distance of 4948 metres - I'd like to get up to 5200m by this time next week.  Trial is nine days away

I love that pic H

I've kept a food diary for years but I think now I just gloss over the entries such as "6 doughnuts" D'oh! Nuts.

He he, thanks for sorting it for me Bear! I look very startled!

Pea I'm quite excited as well! Don't forget, it officially starts tomorrow so enjoy the chocolate whilst you still can! Ohh, I just remembered I've only had a bit of toast today so far, maybe I should have a banana or something......hhhhmmmmm

KK - You will make an excellent thread coach - dig out your whistle!
