8 kilos in 8 weeks (ish)
20

Flurgle · 19/02/2019 09:01

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!

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

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!
