I’ve managed to let my weight creeeeep up to unhealthy levels again over the past year. It has to stop. I’m short and it’s all round my middle too.
I have some key things coming up in the Easter hols so that’s my goal.
No keto. Protein with no carbs makes me feel sick.
Going to:
My fitness pal 1200
Gym (haven’t been in ages)
Cut right down on sugar (last time I had one treat a day like a freddo so I didn’t feel deprived then binge)
Lots of veg.
Good fats. Many avocados grin

Doable right? Anyone with me?

8 kilos is 17 pounds.

You can do it in 2 months easily!

That’s what I think.
That takes me into green bmi.

Hi All-
How's everyone this morning?
Just managed to skip the birthday cakes at work by nipping to the loo when they were bought round! Got me some extra steps in too!

Mostly I am windy... but already feel happier with myself just for not eating all the crap.
How have you lost so far Pinkrose?

I have weighed this morning and lost 2lbs since Monday - not a full week so chuffed with that!

Goldensunnydays81 Fri 22-Feb-19 08:37:19

Can I come and join you! Have got more than 8kg to lose but I’m trying to break it down into realistic goals! And this seems like a good one! First thing on my plan is to meal plan for next week later today as I need a plan!!

Flurgle Fri 22-Feb-19 09:15:21

I weighed myself and my 8kg is more like 10 sad am so annoyed with myself.
But onwards
Well done Help!

Thanks Flurgle! 10 is still achievable if you really put your mind to it but even if you lost 8 in those 8 weeks you could aim to do the other 2 afterwards smile
I have a lot of plans over the coming weekends that mainly involve food and wine so i will only have 5 days a week to really go at it

Pinkroseuk Fri 22-Feb-19 17:32:44

I have been doing 1.8milea waking eAch lunchtime - cross training 20 mins each evening - cutting lunch out and halving dinner as well as cutting out all snacks!
I'm stuck on 90kg and not shifting atm - reduces carbs has also helped! Not sure I have the stamina to stick at it for another few months but going to have to make myself!

Flurgle Fri 22-Feb-19 18:12:41

We can do this! I refuse to be huffing and puffing my way out of a sitting position!
