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?

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.

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.

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.

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

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!

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.

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.

@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!

@Rupertpenrysmistress

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
