I will be attempting to sort my fatness out, and start to make an effort with myself again.

I'm starting tomorrow, who's in?

Yes! How many days is that then?

LadyButton Tue 29-Sep-20 17:19:01

I immediately considered the number of mince pies I will have to turn down. But then that’s probably a good thing...

Twelve weeks to go, I’ve lost some already this year but would be nice to lose another stone.

LadyButton Tue 29-Sep-20 18:00:11

A stone in 12 weeks sounds pretty sensible and doable. I lost half a stone at the beginning of lockdown but put it back on since I started a new job.

pyxi Tue 29-Sep-20 20:02:18

86 days. That's long enough to make a difference.

I will weigh myself in the morning.

Fifteenth time lucky. Not doing well at this at all, but I need to get control and accountability from somewhere. Starting tomorrow. Thanks pyxi.

@IWillWearTallGreenWellies I'm not doing well either. I'm going to make a big effort this time.

I’m going to weigh in next Monday, and between now and then try soooo hard to be good. I can’t face the scales just yet.

pyxi Tue 29-Sep-20 20:23:37

I'm not looking forward to facing the scales either. I've been mentally preparing for a few days 😬

I’m in!

Managed to lose two stone since March, which is halfway to goal. Would love another stone off by Christmas

canigohomenow Tue 29-Sep-20 20:25:52

Good god yes please!

Need this.

I realised last week I have spent the last four years hating myself and my body. No more.

It's my snacking and drinking I need to get under control!

LadyButton Tue 29-Sep-20 20:26:38

I’ll weigh in tomorrow 😬😬😬

gingerwhingerwife Tue 29-Sep-20 20:28:30

I'm in. Would like to shift a stone

bumbledeedum Tue 29-Sep-20 20:34:31

Yes please, I'm in! I managed to put on a stone in lockdown, then lose 2 but have put a load back in the past month sulking about my cancelled holiday and plans.

Rupertpenrysmistress Tue 29-Sep-20 20:40:41

I am in, heaviest I have been and keep trying and failing. Are we all recording our weight tomorrow? Is everyone just generally eating less and moving more? I have some slimfast products but not really sure what I am doing yet.

MrsEfr0n Tue 29-Sep-20 20:41:55

I’m in too! Would love to lose a stone by Christmas smile

Nuneaton Tue 29-Sep-20 20:44:17

Me too, a stone by Christmas would be great.

IWillWearTallGreenWellies Tue 29-Sep-20 21:04:29

@Rupertpenrysmistress I'm trying to stay away from sugar and grain (grain does Terrible Things to my innards anyway) and not snack because I'm bored / cross / exhausted / down etc.

Whether that will work is an entirely different question!

BestestBrownies Tue 29-Sep-20 21:06:58


I used MyFitnessPal to begin with, which really helped me re-set my expectations of portion sizes etc.

Seem to have hit a wall/plateau for a few months sad. Hoping it’s a case of increasing muscle mass at the same rate of fat loss

Thank you all for joining me.

I'm in! I am beyond disgusting and need to take myself in hand - I will join the weigh in tomorrow!

pyxi Tue 29-Sep-20 21:46:05

@wizzbangfizz I feel the same. Big day tomorrow 😁
