Today is my wakeup call day! Anyone want to join me?(5 Posts)
I'm fat. I've put on 2 stone in the last year. There is a contributing medical factor but ultimately I'm just a lazy greedy carb demon who drinks too much. I've been feeling uncomfortable my clothes for weeks now but this morning bit the bullet and got on the scales: 12st 5lbs at only 5'3 Proper weeble territory.
It's my 37th birthday in 10 weeks. My present to myself is that I'm going to be 20lbs lighter than I am today.
Am cutting out alcohol and beige carbs (bread/spuds/pasta). Exercising every day and upping my water intake. Have just been and got a full shop of healthy food. Feeling very motivated and in control.
Breakfast: 2 eggs scrambled with peppered mackerel, red pepper, tomatoes, scallions and rocket.
Lunch: homemade veg soup
Dinner: baked chicken breast with homemade ratatouille
Snack: carrot sticks/pepper/small amount of nuts
Anyone else want to join me in making today the first day of their journey to a healthier future?
Count me in.
10 st 6lbs today and 4ft11.
Egg & Mushroom Omlette for lunch
Chicken in red pesto sauce with cherry toms and courgetti spaghetti for dinner
Count me in too, 5ft 7 and 13 stone 1 also put on 2 stone over the last 2 years.
I am cutting down on alcohol and cutting out processed food and fizzy drinks. I am on weight watchers but haven't been sticking to it so thats starting again
<waves to both>
So I've lost 7lbs in 4 days . Always happens in the first week of low carb, due to the water weight going I think.
SW: 12st 5lbs
CW: 11st 12lbs
GW: 10st 5lbs (ideally lower but that's my initial goal)
Had an amazing ribeye for dinner tonight with roasted Brussels sprouts, tomatoes and mushrooms. Followed by a 4k trek with the pooch.
Feeling really motivated and infinitely better than Just did a week ago.
How are you both getting on?
I list 2 pounds this week so I am below 13st but it was mostly due to a killer migraine at the weekend which meant I missed a couple of meals
CW: 12st 13
Chicken salad for tea tonight and oatcakes with cottage cheese, rocket and spring onions for lunch
