Hoping to use running to help weight loss.
Well done Rats.
I've had a few set-backs with injuries preventing me running, and repeated colds making me want to stay in the warm and eat comfort food.
I've lost a bit, but the stone target it looking doubtful. But I'll do what I can and finish in the new year.
Weigh In today, heading in the right direction! 1lb off, down to 14st 6lb. Slow progress so might not make the stone, will have to wait and see.
Best of Luck for the rest of the week.
It's a lb in the right direction, it's all you need to do, well done.
1.5lb lost this week. 23.8 BMI Going to have to change my name to saggyarse soon. Since the thread began, though I had no intention of losing a stone by Christmas (as i'd already lost 12lbs in the month previous) i've lost 9.5lbs.
I was wondering yesterday what had happened to all the keen posters.
Omg.. just realised, since Febuary i've lost, regained a bit, then lost again a total of 46.5lbs! ? that's disgusting! I was carrying around, on top of my current body weight, 28.4% of lard.
lardarse .. great achiement......I have lost 13 lb so far sice i started 7 weeks ago........just got the final push now.....
Well done everybody!! You all seem to be on a real roll & I really ought to hang my head in shame. Since I joined, I lost a grand total of ....~drum roll~ ... 3.5lbs lol, oh dear. I doubt very much that I can lose another 10.5lbs in a couple of weeks ... oh well. I'll take any loss at this stage and hopefully can get down to 8 1/2 stone eventually (ideally by mid/end Feb)
Well done seren if it's your intention to lose a stone by christmas you'll make it easilly.
Okapi, i'm assuming you're a woman from the weight, and i'm assuming you're not much over 9st? Unless you're extremely short you can't be very overweight? It is true the closer to your true target weight (not some soft 2st over thinking you're thin target) you get the harder it is.
Good - first 10 mile race today. Loved it.
Bad - ate my own body weight in meat afterwards.
This Xmas malarkay is hard work. Have had a busy weekend with nights out etc. Only managed 20 miles last week. However managed a LSR of 9 miles yesterday so will easily get in my 30 miles this week. Probably wont make the stone by Xmas but will still be dropping pounds which is the main aim.
Sounds like everyone is still attempting and keen to lose the pounds on this thread so congratulations to everyone that is keeping up the good work.
Lard - those stats are very impressive, I think you must have impressive willpower.
Seren - great effort.
Okapi - I think as long as the pounds are coming off its still a result
Well done Jane on the 10 miler.
Hopefully we can all keep it going
If I had impressive will power I wouldn't have got so fat in the first place!
...but thanks anway!
;) Ah, its going forward that counts though
Yep! The will power test will be to see if I can stop myself going backwards again, at the moment I have extreme motivation in that i'm doing the Rome marathon in March, i'll be 40 six days after, i'm looking set to get a pb or very close, if I can keep it all together, and for pure vanities sake I want to look and feel good walking about in Rome! lol
...the test will be when all the dust settles after I get back here after the marathon, that will take will power and probably another goal.
Agreed. I think setting goals is the way to keep the motivation high. I am half two halfs, one in March and one in April, so will hopefully keep on my 30 miles a week until then. All the Best
Jane - well done on your race!!Grant & Lard, thanks, yes I suppose it's going in the right direction. It sure feels to be getting harder but if I'm honest, I just haven't been disciplined enough and with Xmas being so close, that willpower will be tested to the max. The thing is, 6 months ago I was a stone lighter and I could really really see the difference in my running & pace. There's this 'racing weight' calculator (though can't quite remember by whom at the moment), for various distances and apparently I ought to be 7 1/2 stone to run my best marathon!!! Oh well....Lard, Rome marathon, that sounds fantastic! I'm doing Milton Keyes but somehow this doesn't have the same ring to it How's your training coming along?Anyway, 2 weeks to go.... let's see what we all can do till then eh
Nothing wrong with the Milton keynes marathon, it's not like I do Rome every year, it's been a "goal" marathon for a long time, ever since I did Athens back in 2007, never been to Rome, love history, it coincides with my 40th, so I thought sod it, i'm doing it!
I did Luton a month ago, so my training has pretty much been a continuation of that with a couple of easier weeks, training for Luton gave me a nice base to build from, my new schedule ups the mileage and intensity a little, so hoping to keep progressing and take advantage of the weight loss.
1 measly lb.
lardarse - better than nowt
After the weekend I had I will take 1lb now!
It is really hard this time of year, the amount of biscuits, sweets, mince pies and goodies that are floating around is a nightmare!
I was lucky enough to lose another 2lb last week, so down to 13 stone, 3lb, but am doubtful of any weight loss this week, i'll be grateful to stay the same!
Well done on another lb lardarse, that's some impressive weight loss overall this year!
