That's slightly over 2lbs a week.
I'm planning to exercise every day & do the 5:2.
Anyone fancy joining me?

Yes I’ll join. Am having some success with LCHF at the moment so shall continue with that.

SmiledWithTheRisingSun Sun 12-May-19 09:55:02

Will weigh in tomorrow morning!

Me please! I'd planned to try to lose a stone over the next 7 weeks, but 2 stone would put me in the normal weight category so maybe I could keep going.

What's your plan OP?

SmiledWithTheRisingSun Sun 12-May-19 09:55:50

Hi cheezy smile
What's LCHF?

Sorry just noticed you said 5:2

SmiledWithTheRisingSun Sun 12-May-19 10:01:39

Hi Sherlock smile

I'm going to use MFP and do the 5:2 diet. It has worked for me before but I just fell off the wagon.

Will either swim or cycle every day.
Also planning to resurrect my Fitbit and make sure I get 10,000 steps in each day - as I have a fairly sedentary job.

I have a wedding coming up and was looking at dresses and feeling depressed about buying a large size again.

Thought I'd post here for accountability.

It's lovely to have some company thanks for the speedy responses.
Whet are your plans?

Me! I’m in. Go on holiday in 12 weeks. I’ve had it booked for a year. Could have lost loads but I’m constantly messing about with the diet.

I’m going to do WW and exercise every day. Plus no booze - that’s my biggest downfall. One glass of wine and I’m like a hungry hippo

plonkie Sun 12-May-19 10:10:22

Hi, I'm in. I have a holiday end of July with a very attractive slim friend Haha. Already lost a stone but stuck in a riot now!

BlueLupins Sun 12-May-19 10:12:52

I'm in.

Have been doing 16:8 and lost half a stone without much effort but have fallen off the wagon in the last week...

I need to MFP and do some exercise every day otherwise I will just hover around the same weight.

I need to lose 2 stone to get into the healthy BMI range - so really need this actually.

SmiledWithTheRisingSun Sun 12-May-19 10:15:38

Welcome Plonkie & EllieMay!
Yes the wine is an issue for me too.
I'm not drinking midweek and then only having a couple of drinks Fri/Sat.

Great timing - I just started low carbing today.
2 stone down would be amazing !
Plse post your daily food consumption.
I plan 2 meals and one 'snack'.
I've had 2 boiled eggs, 1/2 avocado and 2tsp mayo.
I'm planning chicken breast and broccoli for dinner + cheese string for mid arvo snack.

BayandBlonde Sun 12-May-19 20:15:39

Perfect post to start the week. Thanks OP

I have 6 weeks to lose ideally a stone, but it's more than likely to be around 12lbs.

Currently 11st 6. Ideal weight 10st, height 5ft 4

We can all do this, I just keep falling off the bloody wagon!

Exercise is part of my daily life (2 horses) so that's not a problem, my problem is food! I can be a glutinous pig at times confused

BayandBlonde Sun 12-May-19 20:16:34

Sorry to add, BMI of around 26.8.

Worlds0kayestmum Sun 12-May-19 20:19:49

Yes me too please. I keep staring and stopping various diets. I desperately need accountability but can't afford slimming clubs. I'm starting intermittent fasting tomorrow combined with low carb/low kcal. I have a food order arriving tomorrow to start the week off

ILiveInSalemsLot Sun 12-May-19 20:24:20

Oh me too! I go on holiday end of July so I’d love to be slimmer by then.
I’m trying to do blood sugar diet so that fasting and doing 800 cals a day mostly low carb but beans and pulses are allowed.

Worlds0kayestmum Sun 12-May-19 20:32:45

Iliveinsalem - I'm doing similar. I'm not doing a true fast800 because I'm allowing myself 250kcal of rice a day (no other cars though) but will be aiming for 800kcals a day

Ellieboolou27 Sun 12-May-19 20:39:59

Would love to join please! Glad it’s a thread that I can join at the beginning too - will weigh in the morning. I’ve got around 4st to lose so will do MFP and set my calories to 1200
Also going to Pre plan my days calories / meals as I tend to drift off mid afternoon!

custardlover Sun 12-May-19 20:45:08

Yes please! That's exactly the amount I realised I needed for my summer holiday in..... 12 weeks! I will be doing intermittent fasting and low cal/fat. I'd love to do more hardcore exercise too but it's hard with my job so it'll be steps. I'll weigh in tomorrow.

Wondermoomin Sun 12-May-19 20:57:57

Joining in for the motivation! I'll be on holiday in 12 weeks time 😁

I'm going to be doing MFP and frequent, varied exercise. It's the food bit that I find tough, I've finally found exercise I love and look forward to (kind of, haha).

BayandBlonde Sun 12-May-19 21:13:03


What plan do you follow for intermittent fasting?

ltk Sun 12-May-19 21:13:44

Ooo. I'm in. I lost a stone last summer and have maintained. But I need to lose another in the next 6 weeks. I just do no snacks no sugar no seconds and aim for 1600 calories max plus exercise daily. That worked last year - I hope it will again!

HasThisSoddingNameGoneToo Sun 12-May-19 21:19:32

Yes! I'm in. I have a big, exciting event on June 13 and I need to look and feel my best. Currently I'm 2.5 stone over my "best" 😆

I'll go back on WW. It works for me when I actually follow it. I like the app too, it's really easy.

Good luck everyone! We can do this!
