This time next year(5 Posts)
I watched this programme this week and was quite motivated by the woman on there who lost 10 stone in a year. I want to do the same.
So here is my public pledge that this time next year I will have lost 10 stone.
The reasons I want to do this are numerous, obviously being this overweight is bad in lots of ways but the main ones are-
- I've been seeing lots of threads on here recently that operations might not be done if you are too overweight because of the risks involved. I hadn't really considered the implications of this before (stupid I know) but that has been a big wake up call
- I am really interested in fashion but I feel silly telling people this and furthering any path down that way as I can't wear what I like and I have to just wear what fits and covers the bits I hate.
- food takes up such a huge part of my thoughts and I just think that's a bit sad really. I need some balance as I still want to enjoy a meal out with friends but don't want holidays to revolve around what good stuff I can eat or be fantasising about things in the supermarket. I don't want food to be the first thing I turn to in a crisis or bad day.
- I want to run but I can't do that at this weight without hurting my ankles and knees.
So that's just some reasons. I will use this thread as a kind of journal I hope.
But I need to sort this out now.
Well done hair for making this pledge, a year is definitely enough to make a huge dent in the weight. Have you thought about what you need to do or if you'll follow a specific plan? Wishing you all the best
Why don't you join the countdown to Christmas thread.
There's some good diet inspiration on there.
A lot of us are doing intermittent fasting ...so at the end of the day you leave a long period of time before breakfast.
It helps to rest your digestion.
I combine it with the no s ( sweets, snacks, sugar, seconds) during the week and then a couple of treats at the weekend.
If that's a bit hardcore just at the moment, then I would suggest joining sw
It worked for me.
You can do it!
July 2014 i gave myself year of eating 1400 cals, everyday except for birthdays and christmas.
I wrote a food diary on a sunday for the following week and stuck to it 100%
I didn't plan how much i would lose, just let it happen, i lost 8 and a half stone!
Ive been maintaining for over a year now, if I've had a lot of things on and have put on a few pound i really feel it and cut back to lose it.
I won't ever be fat again, life is so much simpler when your not!
Thank you all
I'm going to mfp to start with, focus on moving more and eating less. Definitely need to cut my alcohol intake. I think I'll need to look at my mental relationship with food too.
Feeling positive so far but I know this will be a bit of a rollercoaster!
