I'm only going to weight myself every monday, I'll get depressed doing it everyday and nowt happening.

Know its only been 2 days, but do feel better if not yet looking it.

i'm afraid i'm a weigh myself every day person - always have been. but i won't bore you all by telling you every day. official weigh in for me in sunday

and the last four sundays have been....


thats starting to look a bit depressing. but shall we say i'm more hopeful for this week

M, only really from the beginning of the year, so only 2 weeks today. I know thats not long, but I ususally eat so much and mainly bad stuff, and for these two weeks I have been sooooo good, I thought something small may have happened but not a thing. I dont really know how to cut down any more on what I eat, so thats why if nothing happens by the end of jan im not sure what else i can do.

Don't cut down too much, Skipp!

We have started having a weigh in at my house on a sunday. The 3 of us that live there are all trying to lose weight, so that is like an added incentive as well. (Have to beat my bf otherwise I'll never hear the end of it.)

I wont Jj, I actaully have to eat reasonable reguarly or I start feeling really lightheaded, I jsut mean that everything i eat now is really healthy and i have cut down on portions, but i still eat 3 meals a day.

even if you are eating healthily check your calories. if you aren't eating enough your body will go into starvation and it becomes almost impossible to lose weight.

on the other hand even eating healthily its quite easy to eat too much. in particular try weighing your carbs (too much pasta is many runners downfall!)

finally don't expect to beat your b/f. blokes have it easy - they just mention the word diet and all available excess weight instantly disappears!

good luck with it though. although i've had a bit of a strop about dieting for 3 weeks with no results i stuck with it and it is finally starting to show (although not officially till sunday!)

Thanks M, I dont think I am overdoing the pasta, Ive only have it about once a week and im sure im not starving myself, will give it a couple of weeks and see if anything happens. Thanks for the advice though. Know what you mean about blokes as well, BF has already lost a kilo.

Hello - less of the bloke diet bashing. I think you'll find that us male lardys find it just as difficult to shift the excess bulk. I think a lot of it varies from person to person. I know its just a simple equation of energy in versus energy out but I really do think that some people have it naturally easier.

Roll on lunch!

(sorry count)

higher metabolic rate = more energy out. so yes some people do have it easier.

(ps blokes require more calorie intake for the same weight as women - ok i've stopped now)

Why do men require more calories and can apparently drink more alcohol (although I've proven that wrong enough times)?

Have we got a special gland....and before anyone says anything crude (cause that's my job) not that one!
14/01/2004 at 10:53
coz you're bigger, generally.
14/01/2004 at 11:02
so surely its should be based upon size and not gender...If that is the case then surely its misleading as a taller person will require more than Ronnie Corbett etc.
14/01/2004 at 11:04
Yes - but I said 'generally'.

I'm sure there are more complex physiological reasons, but WildWill's not here at the moment.

14/01/2004 at 11:10
I've lost 0.2 of a pound - yay!!
14/01/2004 at 11:14
no - i meant a bloke of the same weight needs more calories than a girlie. i'm assuming its metabolic rate related again. Michael Keeley did a link to the website for calculating how many calories you need and its totally different for men and women.

but obviously not everyone is the same. some men will have slower metabolic rates. but in general.
14/01/2004 at 11:14
Isn't it something to do with females carry more fat cells than men, so that why is easier for the guy's to lose than us.

Or am I talking a load of B's

Gonna have to put it here or I'm gonna blow it. Have a brokers lunch today, how the hell do ya be good with that one, must try tho.
