Hello! Here we are!

I've weighed in officially at the gym. I'm declaring my weight at 11st 5lbs

I'm appalled at that.

I'm WILL get 7lbs off in September.

There. I've said it!

September will be fantastic for all of us, yes we've all enjoyed some summer spoils ( huge well done to those who have lost weigh too) but time to crack on and get some lbs shifted grin
I shall check in tomorrow and I'm not stressing about it, I know I've put weight on but I also know I can get rid of it too 👍

Thank you BOOP love the title.

September will be our angel month. I believe we will all lose in September - let's do it! We're coming to get you Lindas.

leesmum Thu 31-Aug-17 22:53:44

Mr Boop is onto something there, tres bien 🇫🇷

NikiBabe Thu 31-Aug-17 23:01:14

Yay. I was down 3 or 4lbs in August so hopefully another loss.

leesmum Thu 31-Aug-17 23:10:13

Nice work Niki you can show us how it's done in September smile

BitOutOfPractice Thu 31-Aug-17 23:14:30

Niki I realise that not everyone was appalling in August. But you know, pressure's on for a new title blush

I feel incredibly motivated and, you know, just ready to get back into a routine and get my mojo going again

Ive still eaten a shit load of sweets and crap. September may be my undoing! LOL

NikiBabe Thu 31-Aug-17 23:23:51

The title thread didnt bother me by the way, its awesome grin

MountainDweller Thu 31-Aug-17 23:39:26

Have been absent for a few months but am rejoining in the hopes that you slenderistas can keep me on the straight and narrow.

Commiserations to those also struggling to stay on track and congrats to the losers! I don't know why it's so hard to diet in summer! I would've expected it to be easier when it's warmer and we're supposed to feel like eating less sad I don't drink much because of meds so it's not alcohol...

I have a LOT to loose - have managed 7.5 kg so far but have been stuck there since May blush

I am counting calories with mfp. TBH 7lbs in a month is probably unrealistic but no harm in aiming high!

QuimReaper Thu 31-Aug-17 23:42:27

Hurrah for a new thread! I'm loving the determination everyone seems to be exuding, I think we've all whipped each other up into a victorious mood!

Love the title BOOP - and tell MrBOOP that's exactly the kind of obscure pun I'd try and shoehorn into a title, which is the prime reason I'm not in charge of them...! grin

Badhairday1001 Thu 31-Aug-17 23:43:39

Can I join please? I've been logging everything on mfp and doing some HIIT workouts and the weight is shifting very slowly. This might give me some motivation. I've got 2.5 stone to lose.

BitOutOfPractice Thu 31-Aug-17 23:47:04

Quim I had an 8-line, 2 stanza poem going on but it got so long I had to edit! blush

I'm not in charge BTW. Any of you are welcome to start a thread I know I'm too bossy

Placemarking and introducing smile
Weighed in today, 17st 10. My bipolar medication has really done something to my metabolism like stopped it and put it in reverse.

But. I'm not being down hearted, tracking on mfp and aiming to do as much dog walking as possible (doesn't help that my mutt is exactly like me, any excuse to stay on the sofa is fine by him!).

Keen to see if really tracking my cals in/out makes a difference (to be fair, once you've opened the bar of Dairy milk, you may as well eat the whole thing for free, eh? wink)

BitOutOfPractice Thu 31-Aug-17 23:59:29

Hello beachy. I think tracking everything. And I mean everything. Is absolutely key.

And welcome to the best thread on mn. True fact.

If I could get my weight and my hair fixed on one thread I would be very happy 😂

Badhairday1001 Fri 01-Sep-17 00:04:29

I have bought some kitchen scales today and plan on weighing everything. It's the only thing that I can think of to speed things up. I log absolutely everything but have just been estimating weights of foods and I'm struggling to lose even 1lb a week despite me thinking that I'm sticking to 1600 cals. Hopefully food weighing will be the key for me.

July was great for me.
August a write off. Between going away for a week and relaxing far too much for the rest of the school hols I've managed to put on all the weight I lost in July. Even with lots more exercise.

Bavk to work I the morning, salad already made in the fridge and starting again.

Breakfast only if hungry for it.
Fruit snack in the morning.
Salad, fruit, cereal bar lunch.
Something healthy and not too carby for dinner.
Drop sugary snacks.
No eating out. Saves £ too.
Exercise 3 x week. Aim for 10k steps

DrMadelineMaxwell Fri 01-Sep-17 01:16:46

Will also try and get back in the habit of meal planning and logging. I prefer nutracheck to mfp as it's a UK thing. But not free. Will find out the final damage when I weigh in the morning.

Softpebbles Fri 01-Sep-17 07:39:11

Thanks for the thread BOOP!

I started September with a 6am boot camp class. 😇

I will get into the 10's this month!

BitOutOfPractice Fri 01-Sep-17 07:46:30

Look how determined we all are.

Pebbles that's a golden start starhalo

DrMads I find it easier to stick to plan when I'm back in routine

Hello all starting September at 10.6

That is +1lb for August.

Considering I had a mini break, a holiday and a bank holiday in that time I think I have done reasonably well.

I will also be getting 7 lbs off this month. That will bring me within a whisker of goal weight (9 and a half ish)!

We can do it Slenderistas!
