Here is a link to the December thread

Hello BOOP, I totally fell off the edge in December - hope all you more dedicated peeps had a lovely Christmas and New Year.

Getting more focused as of today. I got the Joe Wicks cookbook for Christmas, going to buy the Hairy Bikers one too. Weighed in this morning - a few pounds up from the start of December but expected that.

Here's to a focused January for us all. brewhalo

G'day all.

Count me in for another month. I'll weigh myself tomorrow but think I'm a few lbs up after xmas feasting.

I'm going to have a go at dry January or at least slightly damp January, which should help ditch the lard. I'm also running c25k and eating small healthy meals. Max nutrition minimum calories. I was doing really well before my crimbo downfall.

Aiming for a 1/2 stone loss this month.

I'm hoping for a good January although it being bloody freezing is always hard. Off to my folks shortly but have dinner leftovers so when I return after the freezing walk from the station at least I can put something straight in the microwave....!

Lovely new January thread, thank you boop smile!

Today is my first day back back back. I have done very badly, feasted to queasiness most days and generally let Christmas get the better of me. However, Fresh start today!

My weight gain is substantial but I'm going to be positive about it as it will feel all the more glorious when it melts off over the next few weeks. Today is a fast day and I've run 5.3k in the sunshine this morning and it felt great. I am eliminating bread & sugar generally and ready to embrace being healthy again.

I am full of run endorphins! Woohoo!

Hi All,

I joined a similar thread a few months back then disappeared. I've put on so much and am the heaviest I have been in years and years.
Got back from holiday last night so today is the day. 11am and I'm sooo hungry. Doesn't help we haven't done a proper shop so we don't have anything healthy in the house hmm I've got to do something though it is getting out of hand!

Hello everyone!

I am also back on it today though we are still on holiday. Got to get used to logging everything again. Really got out of the habit.

I am also going to attempt a dry January. We have boozed our heads off the last few days. We were dancing and singing in our little holiday cottage at 2:30 this morning. Feeling a little delicate this morning

Marking place smile

Travelling home this afternoon so back on the wagon from the morning

QuimReaper Mon 02-Jan-17 11:57:11


I am back. On. The wagon. Yesiamyesiamyesiam.

Gawd it's hard though, when you've slipped into the habit of having chocolate and bacon for every meal.

I tried to order a huge NYD pizza last night and it didn't come, so that's a start fgrin

QuimReaper Mon 02-Jan-17 11:57:45

HEROIC start to the year Kiki well bloody done!

QuimReaper Mon 02-Jan-17 11:58:41

I'm not going to weigh myself until Thursday, possibly Friday. I'm petrified!

Paulat2112 Mon 02-Jan-17 12:03:12

Can I join please? I follow a VLCD and starting back today. It's the only thing that really works for me. Ready to make this year my year, sick of always saying I will do it and then fall off the wagon a week later. I'm in the right frame of mind and ready to lose several stone (plus several more 😱)

PurpleDaisies Mon 02-Jan-17 12:05:41

I put on around 3kg over the past three months so this thread seems ideal!

My plan is to restart exercise and eat properly instead of relying on junk. I'm currently 65.8kg and feeling very lumpy.

OhTheRoses Mon 02-Jan-17 12:10:24

I hope so. I will do "measurements" though. I cannot bear to get on the scales. Not quite doing dry January. Giving wet Fridays a whirl.

Ferrisday Mon 02-Jan-17 12:11:12

Can I join
Can't weigh myself until Wed morning?

BeyondTheStarryNight Mon 02-Jan-17 12:13:10

I have a holiday in eight weeks, so eight strict weeks coming up for me smile

BitOutOfPractice Mon 02-Jan-17 12:23:00

Hello new people and golden oldies alike.

We have half an hour to wait for the ferry. We are parked outside a lovely pub. Not going in. <willpower>

BusterTheBulldog Mon 02-Jan-17 12:54:48

Hello all, Can I join please? Am also heaviest ever been-joyous!

Starting weight 11.4 aiming for 10.12 end of Jan. Bigger target is 9.10 by start of May.

Need to up my running and mainly STOP SNACKING!

QuimReaper Mon 02-Jan-17 13:17:20

Hello newbies, everyone welcome!

Beyond is that you...?

BOOP Did you manage it? It's on the ferry that always gets me...

QuimReaper Mon 02-Jan-17 13:19:33

Paula welcome and good luck! I was just saying on another thread that I do think VLCDs can be very inspirational, with their quick results, but they do send you flying off the wagon after a while, and that cycle can be very demoralising in the long term. Would it be a good idea this year to have a transition plan in place? When you feel yourself despairing at the VLCD, switch over to low-carb or something, so you don't just wail and fling yourself into a tub of ice cream?

Apologies if you already do have such a plan in place!

BeyondTheStarryNight Mon 02-Jan-17 13:20:53

Yep it's me quim - new year, new name grin

plus I have this weekend found out my sister is on mn so I'll be a lot more proactive namechanging in future!!

Pinkvici22 Mon 02-Jan-17 13:23:11

Can I join please? I've put on so much weight in the last couple of months (stress, and I'm an emotional eater).

I'm aiming for 7lbs in Jan, as I have a big night out at the start of February. Ultimately, I'd like to lose a stone and a half blush

BitOutOfPractice Mon 02-Jan-17 13:34:15

We resisted! I've had a tea on the ferry. But I can feel it's going to be a loooooooooong month

TheCakes Mon 02-Jan-17 13:44:32

Can I jump onboard? I'm training with a PT and trying to drop 2 stone by June. It's do-able if I stay on track.
First weigh in this morning I lost 1lb in December, which wasn't bad considering we had Xmas, new year and my 40th birthday spread over three of the four weeks!
