March Diet - Need to shed a stone in 5 weeks

(170 Posts)

Ive moved to the US and put on the dreaded New York stone and cant shake it off. I keep losing and putting on the same five pounds - xmas, ski trips, PIL visiting - everything keeps tripping me up.

I have a clear month till the end of March - no visitors, DH traveling so its now or never. Need lots of support to stay on the wagon. Anyone in a similar boat? What is working for you to stay motivated?

I feel like a fraud on this thread but I'm staying on it anyway. 5:2 next week if I find my willpower and I will try do it.

Want to get a bike too. I loved my ride on thu and it will get me outside smile.

Mok-TOTM = time of the month

Hi all I also feel a fraud on this thread this week as have felt so awful have not made any effort at all! I have not done the shred for 9 days now shock I didn't walk two days last week and have eaten crap for the whole week blush

But that was then and this is now going to start back with a vengeance this week thankfully weight has not gone up this week so I hope I can get 4lbs off in the next two weeks taking me to 11.2 which I will be very happy with for now

I'm starting 5:2 next week and I've menu planned for the next 4 weeks to keep me on the straight and narrow smile

Hop Spam = glad to see you are still here - agree I too feel like a bit of a fraud- 54.9 today sad

will keep going for this last week fwiw. Hop + menu planning for next week sounds fab.

Spam - great that the weight hasnt gone up. everyone falls off at the TOTM ( i stand edified)

Noooo. Don't feel like that!any achievement over the month should be recognised! Just put yourself back to how you felt a month ago. Don't your clothes fit better? Feel less depressed at how fat you feel?

I've lost half a stone this month. It's the difference between a fat size 12 (size 14 if I'm honest) and perfect 12. So that if I go into a shop I feel totally confident licking out the 12.

I originally gave myself until 27 April to shift the weight. I have 3lbs to go to get to my 10lb goal. Been stuck at 10st 7 for almost 2 weeks but determined to crack it this week.

Everyone is doing really well except me. I still check in for inspiration.

Moknicker Tue 26-Mar-13 02:53:15

Zoelda - thats a nice message to read - you are of course absolutely right - do feel a lot better that i did a month ago even if there is a bit more to go. Thank you for that.

54.1 this morning and was relatively good today as well so will try my best this week.

HopAndEggRoll Tue 26-Mar-13 09:07:23

It's my first fast day today on the 5:2 plan, wish me luck.

Moknicker Tue 26-Mar-13 12:38:47

Good luck Hop. I too like the intermittent fasting one - better than low carb although it does end up being low carb.

54.2 today.

HopAndEggRoll Tue 26-Mar-13 21:35:28

First fast done. Will be going to bed soon mind as I feel really cold and tired.

Moknicker Wed 27-Mar-13 12:58:58

Well done Hop. 54.6 today - need some drastic action.

HopAndEggRoll Wed 27-Mar-13 20:07:06

I had a feed day today and ate less than I used to - bonus.

Suzietwo Thu 28-Mar-13 11:22:45

i am NEARLY under 10.7 so pleased with that. feel a lot better too! (name change)

Moknicker Thu 28-Mar-13 12:51:20

54.4 today.

Does anyone want to join me in a 4 day very strict diet and exercise regime so that we can have a decent weigh in on the 1st of april?

No rules - just whatever works for you.

HopAndEggRoll Thu 28-Mar-13 22:38:05

I've just done another fast day. I'm enjoying this and wish I'd started at the beginning of the month.

Moknicker Fri 29-Mar-13 16:48:09

Hop - thats great that this is working for you.

54.3 today so no joy for me but will still keep going.

Suzie, Spam how are you getting on

Suzietwo Fri 29-Mar-13 19:47:47

It's Easter....nuff said

Moknicker Mon 01-Apr-13 15:33:06

55.9 today
start weight of 58.2
so total lost: 2 kgs.

What about the rest of you?

Time to start an April diet thread?

Suzietwo Wed 03-Apr-13 09:32:23

Yes I think so! I'm at 10.7 still, despite eating everything over Easter and being due on today or tomorrow so am quite pleased really. Lost half a stone. I'm keeping going until 27 April.....maybe 7 may
