    New thread!

    So, a relatively inactive 2009 saw me shoot back up to my old weight of 110kg (ish) after being 98kg in Nov 2008.

    Due to moving house/CIMA I've been so busy and not had enough time to exercise as much as I'd like.

    This year, more effort directed towards exercising.

    Due to a heavy December, I was creeping towards 115kg!!!!

    After Xmas I started eating better and exercising..........

    I'm now down to 110kg again.

    1) Dave G - 110kg - 15/01/2010
    2)
    3)
    4)
    5)



    Anyone else care to join. I'll update weekly!

    My aim is under 100kg by end May. :whistle:

    Hope to get down to about 85kgs for Summer. Exercise and normal eating.

    Do we not use stones and lbs anymore :o

    I have just changed the scales to kgs 121.5 needless to say I have heavy bones!!

    I started playing squash again this week, I actually thought I was going to die, and the next day I couldn't walk. Been out on the mountain bike and have started eating healthily. My goal is 16.5 stone by June!!

    I don't think you need to lose half a stone ;) If you feel unfit, do exercise, you may weigh more but you will be fitter and probably slimmer ;)

    77kilos and 6'2"

    Aiming for 80kilos and in better shape... weight has been gained slightly since my last post, just attempting to tone up now. Used to fight at a much lower weight, not sure how I did it now, was the only 6 footer+ in my weight category in the Midlands. Scrawny but toned to fcuk, aiming to look healthy and relatively toned now... :) I used to train 3/4 times a week - not going back to that, but need to do something. :karl:

    New motive to do so now, in the words of Tim;

    I lost a stone last year by one simple method......

    In the knowledge that my willpower is lame I gave my wife 500 and told her she could keep it if I did not loose a stone in 6 weeks.

    I needed the dough to get my track car back on the road so I actually needed the 500 to fund the move. This proved to be a great motivator. Cycling and healthy eating meant that I shattered the target !

    Try it !

    I went to Sunday circuit training this morning... Bloody hard work.

    Then, went to a late lunch... Ate what I just lost and probably more. Just had a glass of wine and a box of posh cheese puffs left over for Christmas. And to top it off, haven't even had the HUGE Sunday roast yet!

    So, diet and healthy gym bunny starts on Monday....

    In the past month I have lost a stone in weight whilst getting my garage ready, and ripping the car apart!! Shame I have got a long way to go before I can even dream of fitting in a Recaro! :whistle:

    Sonja, there's nothing wrong with what you weigh.

    I'm going to be slim by the time I go to the 'Ring in April... I will!

    Think its time for me to lose a lot of weight too :wave:

    Currently 6 foot which I think is about 182cm's

    Current weight it about 130kg :( :shame: mainly from comfert eating from sence my devorce 3 years ago, which I was about 105kg

    Would like to work towards getting down to 100kg first.

    Plan is to start doing a diet program again (Slimming World or Weight Watch's), and then next is to get myself a cheap bike, start of doing a couple miles a night. Ride upto the workshop instead of driving and etc.

    Would join a Gym, but don't get home from work to about 6:15pm. :rolleyes: Last time couple times I went last year there were packed that time until 9pm, and hate being in packed Gyms. :(

    88kg (14st) this time last year to 76kg (12st) currently and it's still dropping, though more gently now. Need to follow it up with more exercise too. Time to get the bike out and commit myself to half an hour on the wii fat every day.

    Sounds really ghey.........but Wii Fit Personal Trainer is really good!

    You set yourself 30day programs, and Wii Fit also has exercises and stuff and weighs you so you can keep track of progress.

    It really is a simple case of mentally agreeing to do it, and then actually doing it.

    Eating healthy:

    Breakfast - Porridge or Cereal with Skimmed/Semi milk.

    Snacks during day - Fruit

    Lunch - 4-500 kcal pasta salad/salad/sandwiches (no mayo etc!)

    Dinner - Sensible portions of low fat food, & fish 2-3 times a week.

    This, in conjunction with 35 mins of exercise 4-5 times a week and it doesn't take long to start seeing results.

    I bought 'Low Fat Feasts' - A little book of really nice but healthy dinners to prepare. And they aren't too expensive either.

    I don't get home from work until 19:40 or 20:10, but I still do 35 mins on Wii Fit 4-5 times a week. Twice at the weekend.......and more recently I started cycling. When it's warmer I'll do some running too.

    I've lost about a stone since Xmas. It starts working quickly, and the more successful you are the more motivated you will be to continue.

    Of course cutting out chocolate/crisps is a must. And no beers. The occasional glass of wine is okay.

    Any other tips?

    I'm back in the Gym tonight so long as they let me back :lol:

    Some light weights to ease back into it and then sprints.

    Plan is:

    Monday - Weights + Sprints
    Tuesday - Cardio
    Wednesday - Weights + Sprints
    Thursday - Cardio
    Friday - Weights + Sprints
    Saturday - Cardio
    Sunday - Cardio

    My cardio will consist of either running or cycling. I also have trials for a local American Football team at the end of the month :thumb:

    I watch fat content alone, try and keep it between 20 and 30 grams a day, even less if I can, works for me. Beer is a no no, I'll be off it for 2 or 3 weeks to shift my xmas poundage.

    Lots and lots and lots of CV I do 40 minutes on the cross trainer, 30 minutes on the bike, and 10 minutes rowing at the Gym. I do mess about with weights on occasion, But it won't make you lose any weight as such as muscle weighs more. benefits are, more muscle you have, more you can eat. Longer you keep it up your body adapts as such, I used to weigh 95kgs, I got down to 78-80 and it stays there now, Unless I have a 3 week xmas period of just eating crapola. :lol:

    Try a starve day dave, experts now think these are not harmful, take a day and eat next to feck all if nothing at all, eventually, you will surpass the hunger pains. Body adapts quickly to a diet, its the reason the weight loss slows down and can eventually stop. So variation is also important. Switch to a low carb one, when the weight starts slowing, and you'll start losing again.

    A sport you enjoy doing is the best thing, I have retired from Sunday league, But i'd run far further on a sunday morning, than i would ever do in the Gym, as you have an external motivation, I play squash every week, and thats very similar.

    In the gym with the same old routine, its very hard to keep the same motivation.

    Or get your missus to leave ya, thats the best diet in the world, when you all of a suddern are back in the showroom window :lol: :lol:

    Dave,

    Regardless of damage to your body, I'd still rather eat during a day than not.

    I'm not after a crash diet.

    I will stick to 1,200-1,800 kcal a day, and exercise.

    Simple as that.

    Over the course of three months, I'll go from 17 stone to 16 stone.

    Providing I stick to it.

    Once I've got to 16 stone, I'll maintain the healthy eating most of the time, but start to enjoy some sweet stuff (in moderation) but keep the exercise up. Then I should maintain it!

    :thumb:



    ETA: One of the reasons it becomes harder to shift more weight as you lose it is because there is less left to shift!!

    When I got to 16.25 stone before it was hard to shift the final bit........

    I'm not after a crash diet.

    I will stick to 1,200-1,800 kcal a day, and exercise.

    Simple as that.

    Over the course of three months, I'll go from 17 stone to 16 stone.

    Providing I stick to it.

    Once I've got to 16 stone, I'll maintain the healthy eating most of the time, but start to enjoy some sweet stuff (in moderation) but keep the exercise up. Then I should maintain it!

    :thumb:



    ETA: One of the reasons it becomes harder to shift more weight as you lose it is because there is less left to shift!!

    When I got to 16.25 stone before it was hard to shift the final bit........
    That'll work fo sure, I stick to the same, plus count what I burn at the gym, although gym machines are no indication, and about as accurate as Juan's lap timing.

    I actually function better on no food during the day, for some reason, my brain is more switched on, on an empty stomach.

    I have a activia yogurt thing for brekkie (not much) no lunch, and a normal evening meal works for me, although my portion control could be improved, i tend to eat with my eyes still LOL
    Ermmmmm

    You should have lunch, even something small. Not eating isn't the way!!

    If you are exercising like you say, then eating a light lunch has got to be better than sitting there hungry.

    If you eat TOO much then you are lethargic and want to sleep, but something light is good for energy!

    If you don't eat, your body stores fat because it thinks it is being starved.

    Im exercising since approx. 8 weeks now. Mon, Wed, and Fri before work Im going to the gym. Focus in the moment is training the postural muscles and doing something for the overall fitness.

    Lost (only) 3 kilos since the beginning but build up some muscle mass and the whole body seems to get back some kind of shape. :D

    Still a long hard way to go. But Ill do my best.


    EDIT:

    actual:
    1,86m
    128,1 kilo
    Best Regards

    Hello.

    Seem to have hit a plateau, but this happens. And it's only a three day one! :lol: (this lol is too extreme).

    However, I tried on a pair of jeans which haven't fitted since I was 16 stone back in late 2008.

    Over Xmas they wouldn't even get around my waist :shame: , now they do, and they even do up (still a bit tight!).

    So it's working. Pleased.
