Vixo- that is what I do, aim for 1400-1600 cals per day and don't add extra calories for exercise and I only drink one bottle of wine a wk which is less than 600 cals. Only day I eat more is long run day where I will allow myself about 2000 cals ( but that's normally the day I have bottle of wine). I weigh all my food so am not estimating portion sizes either. It will come off eventually, it's just frustrating when I see other people lose weight so much easier and with way less effort exercise wise.

Camlo- I use myfitnesspal app and log every mouthful of food/ drink consumed. This wk I have eaten more than usual as bn at home with kids and in holiday mode. Ate 14,227cals all in which averages as 2032cals per day, which is what I burn on non exercise days. (Wore a hrm for a month just to get idea of my calorie burn) I ran 40 miles, cycled 46.7 Miles and hill walked 6.5 Miles. I count my exercise as 113cals per mile for runs, 25 cals per mile for bike and 80 for hill walking. Which comes to 6208 cals for my wks exercise. Should have lost 1.75 lb on that calorie burn. Never quite works like that though. I have lost 18 lb since Christmas but most of that came off the 1st 2 months and bn a hard slog since. I am now same weight as I was Feb 2012, very disheartening to spend 2 yrs yoyoing and not getting any closer to goal. But heyho just have to keep at it. Will get there eventually.

22 Mile run for me this morn, glorious blue skies and sunshine. Feet and ankle my problem. Legs feel absolutely fine but heel sore for 1st few mins when get up and ankle will b stiff and sore in the morn. Feet and ankles are what hurts on run. Especially going downhill. Thinking hokas might b way to go too.

22 Mile run this morning, legs feel absolutely fine, hips knees and all muscles on legs feel good. But my ankles aching and heel killing me. Just desperately want to lose this weight, I am sure it will make huge difference to ankles and feet. But coming off soooooo slow. Lost half a pound this wk, despite nearly 70 miles running/ cycling/walking. Still got 36.5 lb to go. Think I only have about 9 wks til dirty 30. Be lucky to lose another 4 lb at that rate ????

I am a bit control freaky when comes to alcohol. Most folk in my family either rarely drink or have alcohol problem. I will have a bottle of wine or 4 cans of cider per wk and that is it. If it's in the house I will drink it. Hubby had a bottle of gin he got for his birthday and I would have a couple of gins every night. So easy to get into that habit. So I just don't have it in the house during the wk and it's a treat for a Fri or Sat night, usually Fri cos it's long run day.
