With 15 weeks untill the beginning of December I'm aiming to lose 1 pound a week. First weigh in tomorrow - anyone want to join me?

notevenamum1 Tue 15-Aug-17 22:18:38

Me me but only weighing in monthly...sorry, am I no good?

Amazing to think that we could lose a stone by Xmas!

AIMGA Tue 15-Aug-17 22:37:16

No, that's great! Why once a month out of curiosity?

I'm looking forward to fitting in my clothes for Christmas fgrin

Swearwolf Tue 15-Aug-17 22:38:28

I'll join you! I only want to weigh monthly too, I fluctuate too much weekly. One big push to fit in a Christmas party dress!

AIMGA Tue 15-Aug-17 22:45:19

Welcome, welcome swear !

Im hoping that portion control, cutting out snacks and no dessert should do it [fingers crossed]. I eat pretty low carb anyway...

notevenamum1 Tue 15-Aug-17 23:09:53

@swearwolf I am like you and fluctuate too much weekly. If I've been good and then weigh myself and see no results I end up giving in!!

I am low carb, I take my breakfast and lunch to work so go through lots of Tupperware! I find it easy to be good during the week and then ruin it all at the weekends

TimbuktuTimbuktu Tue 15-Aug-17 23:22:24

I'll join in. I've started doing 30 day shred today. I'd like to lose 2 stone by Christmas (ambitious!)

My first weigh in was Sunday, 13st.

I'd love to join in too please? Summer has been unkind to my waistline (or would that be cake and wine?!) ;-) and I could really do with the focus.

AIMGA Wed 16-Aug-17 07:18:43

Hello Timbuktu & Claire . Weighed this morning - 9st 5.5lbs. Aim is 8st 7lbs by 1.12...very doable but I'm a master of excuses!!
I'm writing this whilst on the cross trainer (first exercise in about 4 years ha!)

ClaireFrasersHair Wed 16-Aug-17 09:09:43

Good morning. Right, I've weighed in and I'm 10 stone exactly. Would love to lose 10lbs. Off to gym shortly, but it's snacking that's really my problem.

wantawaistagain Wed 16-Aug-17 10:03:49

I want to join. I'm 10st 4lb and I'd like to be 9st 7lb. I'm going to get back to doing 10,000 steps a day and not eating after 6pm.

AIMGA Wed 16-Aug-17 11:41:13

Hello wantawaist - I like the username!

Snacking is one of my problems too Claire. I like the idea of not eating after 6pm... will give that a go!

wantawaistagain Wed 16-Aug-17 13:43:29

I carry all my weight around the middle. I'm short with 36" hips and bust but at the moment I have a 33" waist so I feel really dumpy. I own a good few exercise DVDs and I plan to sign up for pilates in September because I need some tummy toning to go with the weight loss.

glenthebattleostrich Wed 16-Aug-17 13:47:34

Hello, can I join you.

I want to lose 3 stone in total by April and am aiming to be halfway there by Christmas.

I'm aiming for low carb / intermittent fasting and exercise 5 times per week. Although most of this will have to wait until after my family visit next week.

I'm also planning to do a dry September, November and January (alternate months).

AIMGA Wed 16-Aug-17 17:10:58

Welcome glen smile

I'm already struggling! I am a big time boredom grazer/snacker and being a sahm means I have constant access to the fridge. I'm breastfeeding at the moment so unsure about fasting...although if I stop eating at 6pm and don't eat breakfast till 9am that should be fine [guessing]

everyonesgotanopinion Wed 16-Aug-17 22:38:11

Hi 👋
I'd like to join you all too. 10 st 3lbs currently and a stone would be perfect. Currently trying to eat healthily and last meal before 6pm, it's working slowly, lost nearly 2 stone already. Be nice to check in here for support.

wfrances Wed 16-Aug-17 22:50:35

can i join you too, hope to lose at least a stone ,will weigh in the morning.

Nottalotta Wed 16-Aug-17 22:53:00

Oh god. I want to join but your starting weights are lower than my goal weight!!

Nottalotta Wed 16-Aug-17 22:55:02

Glen I want to lose 3 stone too. I would be thrilled with that!!

I think i must have put half a stone in in the last few weeks as I eat crap because I'll be on a diet soon.....

3wayburger Wed 16-Aug-17 23:07:41

Room for me?
Would love to join.
I'm aiming for 3 stone by spring next year so this would be a perfect start.

Nottalotta Thu 17-Aug-17 07:03:44

OK so it's taken quite a lot for me to post this. 13st 3 this morning.

I'll revise my target to 2 and a half stone.

TimbuktuTimbuktu Thu 17-Aug-17 08:53:18

12.10 today so 4lb off since Monday! I do love the first few days of low carb.

We are having a charity cake sale at work today though so there is a good chance I will put it all back on again by tea time!

I have done the first three days of 30 day shred and---- it seems to be very effective for such a short workout. Every part of my body hurts

How is everyone today?

TimbuktuTimbuktu Thu 17-Aug-17 08:54:09

Hmm. Crossing out failure there! You know what I mean!

Nottalotta Thu 17-Aug-17 08:57:26

Well done timbuktu!

I've done 30 day shred before, it's really good. And short! I stopped hurting by day 4/5.

Big birthday for me tomorrow, but not celebrating really for various reasons, though might have cake.

AIMGA Thu 17-Aug-17 09:16:21

Hello Notta ...I was 13st 6 years ago so it is nothing to be worried about. You can do it smile.

Well-done Timbuktu I know the feeling, I have our local fete today where there will be soooooo much delicious food. My aim is to avoid sugar, but I will probably have some carb at lunch.
