Well it's been one week since I started calorie counting and switched my diet round. I've lost 6 lbs!!! :D in just one week that's brilliant, totally motivated to keep it going now.

How's everyone doing with this?

Haven't weighed myself again but definitely feeling a wee difference.

Done my back in recently so not been able to get out and about as much as I would have hoped to

Its difficult fitting any excercise in with the kids and work etc

So I have decided to walk home from work on the nights where I finish after 11pm. By that point everyone at home is in bed anyway so getting in later than the train would get me home makes no difference


It's about a 5 mile walk from my work in the city centre to my house. Done it last week and it took about 1hr 15mins

Have a run of 5 back shifts starting tonight where I finish at midnight so going to attempt walking it each night.

There's also always the chance of a damn good stabbing walking home in Glasgow at that time of night so the running away will help too :lol:

I'm probably the heaviest here and even being far from a short @rse I'm far from a healthy wait, I've also been told I need to say tatty bye to 15.4kg to have a sinus op done so its time to get it sorted, while I'm not into sweets sugared drinks and lack of physical work have been my downfall so Im planning to sort it out too.

So the plan is:
Walk more, sometimes taking my partner in slime as he's more sausage roll these days in his vintage 13 years and it beats the bus for amusment.
Physically wash the car by hand rather than pay Valets, its something I enjoy anyway and the leather is going to be a good workout with its needed treatment.
Cut the sugared drinks, not a single sugared drink passed my lips today but can't quite stomach milk free yet, fizzy water makes you feel full too.
Avoid crisps etc, was peckish when I got home so munched walnuts insted.
Fix the bike up and have a sunday ride rather than a sunday drive, used to love it in my teens.
Manual work paid and unpaid, plenty of stuff needs doing and the cash will help.

While I'll never be thin enough for skinny jeans it would be nice to have more choice in clothing and more energy, plus its cheaper than carbon fibre weight reduction :D

4th night in a row walking home tonight so that's 20 miles in 4 nights

Surprisingly easy last night since I brought trainers in my bag as opposed to doing it in heavy steel toe boots the first two nights!!

It's to be minus 4 here tonight though so that will be fun

Well, I set myself a target of losing around 2.5st and I have yest to do anything to achieve this :lol:
I was just under 16st so I might weigh myself later and see if thinking about losing weight has made it fall off... although looking at myself in the mirror and the fact I cant do my top button on my size 38 jeans up probably points to a negative! :oops:

I've cut out sweets and most other junk food, back on soup for lunch with fruit, veg and low cal crisps/cereal bars for snacks. Worked for me before.

Joined the gym again last week but only been once as we had the grandkids staying for a few days last week and they gave me a stinking cold for this week so I can barely breathe.

I'm staying positive though, sure I've lost a couple of pounds.

TBH, I have a fat belly and moobs.... but people don't believe I am nearly 16st. I hide it well :D
One thing though - I have a very big head :wink: :mrgreen:

It's a sea of old People :wink:

Did low cal BBQ style tofu for dinner and it worked out great and filled the spot, Ive also not touched a sugary drink for nearly a week, ignoring the coke sat in the fridge going straight for fizzy water also made bit more effort with the housework tonight and feel better for it.

Bring on the weekend whe I can get that rowing machine :D
