Can I join in? Support for long term slimmer thread is on its last legs. I need to lose more weight, I have been drinking wine and eating chocolate lately Oh god, just read I have to post my weight, no way!
i wouldn't mind joining in. need bit of an incnetive to actually do.
but how do we go about planning the exercise and diet routine on here - who will say what we need to do etc.......or am i just being a bit thick ?
already lost just over a stone from dd being born 2 wks ago! perhaps half of that was my brain!!!!
Go on, count me in...
I'll bite the bullet and put my stats up - I'm 5ft 7 and 11st12. Want to be 10st or thereabouts. Dd2 is 11 weeks and I am still breastfeeding so dieting will be affected by that. AND I am in a 38h bra, so no running for me!
I am 5'3" weigh 9st 10, not fat as such but have wobbly gut and splodgy bit that hands over jeans. The only exercise I 'enjoy' (cough) is running, but would like to join in.... and lose half a stone or so so am not blobby for hols at start of july.
I'm up for getting fit, don't have a lot of weight to lose though just need to actually do exercise tone up and stop eating nasty foodstuffs. Don't know the results could be measured on MN though I mean I'm not going to start analysing poo or anything like that .. but fitness is about more than weight, I'm terribly unfit atm?
Would like to join in, I am following the Slimming World diet but need extra keep-fit motivation for 2 reasons--am doing a half-marathon power-walk in June and it's our 15th wedding anniversary in July. Am 5ft 7ins and weigh 12st 2lbs. Goal is to be 2st 3lbs lighter by my b'day in Sept; interim goal to be 5lbs lighter by DS' b'day on 24 April. My plan is to do my power-walk sessions 3 x pw with some weight-training.
If we can't find an expert, we could still make a commitment on here to do a certain amount of exercise on certain days and then let everyone know whether we've achieved our goals. For example, by Monday morning I want to have done two power-walking sessions and one gym visit. What's everyone else going to achieve this weekend?
