Stopping scoffing........who's with me?"

Right, today I'm drawing a line under the ridiculous amount I've been eating and drinking. I've only got about 3 outfits I can fit into and a wardrobe full of clothes that are way to small. I'm going on holiday at the beginning of June and I don't want to spoil my enjoyment by feeling fat and self-conscious.

I'm going to:
1) rejoin MFP - I've already entered todays food.
2) go to zumba tonight and actually put some effort into it rather than taking it easy.
3) make sensible lunches for work rather than spend money on fattening rubbish.
4) stop hovering up my DD's leftovers.

Enough is enough!

Is anyone with me for some moral support??

Me!!!
I'm doing the 30 day shred and watching what I eat. Baby number 3 is 6 months old now and I can't keep using "I have just had a baby" as an excuse.
I need to loose 14-20lbs

ChristineDaae Mon 15-Apr-13 18:14:11

Ohh me! I'm on day 1 of low carb-ing and also doing the shred. I have to do every other day though as with 2 jobs and a 2 year old I literally don't get 20 min to myself some days!!

monkeysbignuts Mon 15-Apr-13 18:26:48

I know what you mean.
I have 3 kids under 5 so 20 minutes is sometimes cut short lol.
I have been doing it for almost 3 weeks and I am definitely more toned yet the scales are still the same sad

Bakingnovice Mon 15-Apr-13 18:34:12

Me me me! I need to lose about 20lbs. I did the shred last year. Felt great but lost nothing.

WeAreEternal Mon 15-Apr-13 18:35:31

I am in.

Since DP went away nearly three month ago I have gained a disturbing amount of weight.
I need to sort myself out.

I have SHRED.

Is anyone interested in being my buddy?
I could really use the support, I'm terrible at the start of diets.

Bakingnovice Mon 15-Apr-13 18:42:31

Weare I started my regime today. Just healthy eating and a walk. I'd love to have a buddy. I started a thread but only one person replied so I could use some support.

worley Mon 15-Apr-13 18:43:27

I'll join in with you..
lost three stone last year with shred and my fitness pal...
since Xmas out a stone on and can't fit into any of my "new" clothes.. have one pair of jeans I've got with the button undone permanently..
need to get back with the shred.. mfp and jogging again.
ds2 still has Easter eggs just sitting there which I keep scoffing every time I go in kitchen ( he had 5 not 29!!)

Shred will help with fitness but you won't lose much weight with it

How about running, swimming or even power walking?

OnTheNingNangNong Mon 15-Apr-13 18:48:17

I signed up to MFP today. Got quite a shock when I got onto the scales. I'm 1.5stone over my pre pregnancy weight and DS2 is 14 months now so I have no excuses whatsoever.

I really need support as I have minimal willpower when alone.

I really need to exercise more. Did an hour in the pool with DC's and the husband today and I'm challenging him to the UFC Kinect game to help burn some of the calories.

I'm also going to walk to school more rather than drive or take the bus, it's not that far but we're at the top of some very steep hills, but hoping that pushing the pram will help lose weight and tone me up a little.

BadTemperedLadybird Mon 15-Apr-13 20:41:17

Horaay! I got some replies!

I'm not brave enough to stand on the scales yet. I'll weigh in Thursday morning I think as I'm having dinner out with friends that evening.

I've been trying to go it alone for the past couple of months but all that's meant is a few days of healthy eating and then filling my face. So, I'll definitely be posting on MFP religiously and updating here with you all smile

In 6 weeks time, we'll all be at least half a stone lighter.

rusmum Mon 15-Apr-13 21:09:01

I'm in! Worley are u me? I also lost 3 last year and put one on at/since Xmas! Lol shredding too but calorie burn is so low u won't lose weight on it, tone up possibly? Have got insanity but its too tough ( I used to be able to do it ish) hmm

worley Mon 15-Apr-13 23:04:33

rusmum.. it's so frustrating!! I took such delight in throwing my old clothes out and now have nothing left to get into!! I've really just been stuffing myself again and need to get control of it. felt so much better this time last year about it all.

worley Mon 15-Apr-13 23:05:46

I really toned up on shred.. and had little dents where the abs where forming underneath smile and definition in arms and bum smile
need to get a grip gain!!

Ponks Mon 15-Apr-13 23:19:33

Good for you ladybird, sounds like that all-important switch in attitude has happened in your brain - that's what happened to me after Christmas, I just thought "I'm fed up with being fat & feeling horrible" and actually started doing something about it. I'd been gradually piling on poundage for a couple of years and felt miserable.
Haven't been on a mega diet, just eating sensibly and more healthily, I've been doing Shred & getting into lots of other Jillian Michaels DVDs, and 3 months on I feel like a different person.
Go for it. You will thank yourself. Good luck! smile

In brazil there is a saying. She who wants to loose weight must first loose teeth.

ChristineDaae Tue 16-Apr-13 07:23:38

Right - I felt awful last night and went to bed at 9pm when I really should have been shredding. So now I have to squeeze it in between works today cos I'm not letting myself off the hook.
How often do you weigh in? I think I prob do it too often!!
Weight to lose - 29lbs hmm

BadTemperedLadybird Tue 16-Apr-13 08:14:57

Thank you for your lovely, supportive message Ponks

Christine I'm very impressed at your shredding dedication. I confess that I do own that DVD but I've only done it twice blush

monkeysbignuts Tue 16-Apr-13 10:37:52

I am loosing inches with the 30 day shred! Been doing it 3 weeks combined with healthy eating and lost 7lbs smile
My bum thighs and hips are looking more toned to

putyourhatonsweetie Tue 16-Apr-13 12:03:54

me me me (please), pleased to find this thread.

loads to lose ...started last week on low(ish) carb. So far lost 1.5 kg. I know kilos is a bit annoying for some but weirdly i get less emotional working in kilos after years of diet fail working in stones and pounds.

ChristineDaae Tue 16-Apr-13 17:34:54

How is everyone doing today? Have any of you set short term targets? Weekly/monthly etc?
Glad to hear there are some results on the Shred, I don't mind if it doesn't contribute much to weight loss, I'm in it for the toning. Don't want to loose weight and still be wobbly! grin

BadTemperedLadybird Tue 16-Apr-13 18:59:19

I think my long term target is to get back in my old jeans. I've got a specific pair that I haven't been able to squeeze into for some considerable time. Well, I probably could get into them at some point over the past couple of years but I wouldn't have been able to do them up!

My short term target would be to lose half a stone by the beginning of June (holiday!).

What about everyone else?

BadTemperedLadybird Tue 16-Apr-13 20:41:30

Ooh, just noticed there's another thread with a very similar title to this. Whoops blush. Shall I see if I can change this title to avoid confusion?

munchkinmaster Tue 16-Apr-13 21:01:04

Can I join in. Dd is now 13 months so baby weight no longer an excuse. I have 2 stone to lose. I was slimmer when I was 6 months pregnant sad.
I'm cutting out the crap, trying to run when I can and trying to cook healthier meals. I'm also still breast feeding and wonder if that is keeping me fleshy?

Would be really helpful to log down my runs and weights. Going to weigh self on a Friday.

munchkinmaster Tue 16-Apr-13 21:02:47

I'd love to lose the weight by September but maybe could try and get down to 10' 7 (ie lose 6lbs) by the end of may?
