A weight-loss sub-thread of The Long Green Ribbon Thread.
Lurgy beginning to lift, at last ! Still just walking dog though...
Glad you are feeling better birkmyre! Just in time for Hogmanay! Will you be doing anything tonight?
Happy New Year everyone
Happy New Year DD! What are you up to?
Happy new year (and a belated Merry Christmas) to all from me.
Couldn't get myself focused in the second half of December with all the Christmas socialising but ready to make a serious effort to get some weight off this year.
Have just weighed in at 14 stone 10lb (waist 110cm) which is slightly worse than I was expecting.
Well done to all the folks on here who have managed to avoid piling it on over Xmas!
Happy New Year MTViking - how are you?
As far as I know the worst I have done is 1lb on. Proper weigh in and BodyStat test tomorrow I think.
What are your goals for 2013?
OK, to lose at least a stone and a half, possibly more like two which is not going to be easy but if I don't start doing something about it ASAP it is only going to get worse.
Going to start doing Parkrun at least once a month to gauge the improvement in my fitness and would like to do the Great North Run again in September in a quicker time than my only previous half marathon last year.
1lb on is pretty outstanding over Xmas, well done Vixx!
Thanks MTViking - I did train pretty hard between my birthday up to New Year's Eve, then I woke up this morning and realised no washing had been done for a couple of days and I have no training gear clean! :S
Did weights in front of the West Brom v Fulham match to make up for lack of Cardio.... (to be fair my weight gain may well be muscle as I have started new medication now).
I didn't run today either but that is largely due to being hungover!
LOL - carb-loading then
Happy New Year lfc - hope you had a good time
Quiet - trained during most of it
hi all, happy new year!
Also had a lurgy over the last week, well a head cold. Kicked it to touch with a 7 mile run tonight. Hopefully!
vixx nice one on only 1lb! Me I put on 2.6lbs, not too upset. Think most of that was while I felt ill and unable to run. Able to eat chocolates, you get the picture.
8 days till I go see my peruvian peeps, cannot believe it!
You will have a great time wabo I've been training hard over Christmas to take advantage of starting my new hormone therapy, so the 1lb might even be muscle - i don't know yet as I didn't get to do my BodyStat today
Just been watching the football - good results for the Liverpudlian teams, and super result for QPR!
Morning, just about over this lurgy.
Haven't run a step since Christmas Eve. Possibly today or more likley tomorrow the comeback starts.
Glad that you are better birkmyre - don't overdo it when you get back out there!
Honesty time - who put weight over Christmas/New Year?
Hi folks, just did my first proper run for nearly 6 weeks (injuries + xmas!). Park run in 24.36. Not my quickest but under the cirumstances I will take it.
Well done MTViking! Awesome effort How are the injured bits? Holding out OK?
