I'm sorting my self out, starting from tomorrow.

So fed up with mindlessly eating crap day after day. I'm getting fatter by the week and I've had enough.

I will be weighing myself tomorrow morning.

Please join me.

I'm in! I've been making a half-hearted attempt since the beginning of the year and have lost about 4lbs, but not had any real motivation. I need to be answerable to people! I've got 2 stone that I want to lose by the end of June, as we're going away in July. Am aiming for the first stone to be gone by Easter.
I don't eat loads but I don't do any exercise at all and I really need to start!

Yes me. I took a selfie today and looked terrible and really unhealthy. My skin is dull, my eyes look tired with dark circles and I need to lose a couple of stone.
So from tomorrow,
Fasting and low carb.
Hot flannel oil wash every night
Multi vit daily
Lots of water
30 mins exercise
Bed by 11

I’m sure that will sort me out. Hopefully I can stick with it.

Thanks for joining me.

Not sure how much weight I need to drop but I'm guessing around 2.5 stones. I'm dreading the scales tomorrow but I need a starting point.

Shall we have Mondays as weigh in day?

Omg I was just about to start a thread on here with the title 'I've let myself go'!

I'm so in and ready to do this.

Over the past 5 years since have DC I have been on a diet. Sometimes I lose sometimes I gain. But for a while I've just been gaining and I'm the heaviest I've ever been.

Over the past 3.5 years I have had multiple rounds of failed IVF (four 🙁) and a miscarriage. This has led me to have a 'fuck it' and 'what's the point' attitude.

The other day I saw a photo of myself and I looked huge. My husband kindly told me that I'm the biggest he's seen me and will support me in trying to lose weight and encourage me to exercise and not feel guilty about leaving DC/a messy house/batch cooking etc. I have to make sacrifices to lose weight.

So I'm in! And ready to support anyone who needs it ☺️

PlatoAteMySnozcumber · 09/02/2020 20:16

Yes! I need to shift the last two stone of second baby weight, it was so easy with the first, sigh. I am a saint all week but weekends go to pot and I end up having a few drinks and eating ‘proper’ food at the weekend. I am not getting any fatter but am not shifting the extra weight. I don’t have time to go to the gym and feel like life is hard enough with work and two young children that I find it hard to cut out the little luxuries. Age and metabolism are not on my side sadly.

I have a holiday booked for the summer and feel very self conscious being a tubby version of myself. The only realistic option is to hit the gym and quit the booze. Need to motivate myself so please count me in!

Can I join too? I need to do something. I've gradually put a stone on since changing my job a year ago, and need to sort myself out. So:

Less biscuits etc (see user name)
Make healthy lunches for work
Get back to an exercise routine
A normal sized breakfast
Less bread/potatoes/pasta etc

Would like to lose 1.5 stones ideally.

@kittykatkitty you have just reminded me that I have a Fitbit. I'm going to go and dig it out, dust it off and charge it. Hopefully it will still work, it's been a while.

I'll join in here also please. I'm currently 16.5 stone, started in mid January & am down 10lbs. Some days are really good & then some days awful... like today when I've just had takeaway for dinner.
I'd like to get to about 12.5 stone & see if I can maintain at that. So 4 stone to go.

I saw the title of this thread and I wanted to come on and say do it!
I started on new years day and in only 6 weeks I've seen a big difference.
I cut out booze completely, dry January then just carried it on. Banned crisps and committed to doing 5 mins work out every day ( Fit in 5 on sky and YouTube)
As the weeks have gone on I've cut out snacks and done a little but of gentle jogging.
Taking a slow and non drastic approach has really worked for me and I intend to keep it up but relax the alcohol ban on my holiday next week.
Good luck every body x

Hi. I'd like to join please. I'm 78kg but would like to be 70kg eventually which would be more suited to my height. Mostly I'd like to feel better. Today I did a 40 minute brisk walk and felt better whilst doing it and afterwards.

MacavityTheDentistsCat · 09/02/2020 20:39

Count me in too. Need to lose about 12kgs (not sure about how much that is in Imperial - about two stones, I think) and tone up all other blubber. We're going on a beach holiday in August and at this rate everyone will be shouting 'beached whale' when I exit the sea Blush.

Think I am going to follow 5:2 plus C25K with strength work 3 times per week. Will also gradually up my step count.
