New Year Healthier Living


#1

As mentioned in the accountability thread I do well with a bit of competition so if anyone else who wants to lose weight wants to join in we can do a weekly weigh in in here.

Just post weight lost, no need for your actual weight, unless you want to. Shall we go for every Wednesday - a week from today being the first update.

Who’s in?


#2

Will give it a try!

Once I’m home I’ll weigh in for the first time.


#3

NEW YEAR NEW ME

Next Wednesday it is. Current weight for accountability: 270 big uns


#4

2018 start - 83 kg
2018 end - 77 kg
2018 lowest - 75 kg
2019 target - 70 kg

So, same again moreorless


#5

Gained 2kg over Christmas :upside_down_face:


#6

i need to do this because i am well aware i’m the heaviest i’ve ever been and yet i never weigh myself - this might shock me into actually doing something about it (alongside the fact that i don’t fit comfortably into half my wardrobe at the moment and looking at all the useless clothes gives me severe anxiety)


#7

I knew I was at my heaviest but haven’t weighed myself since summer and I’m a stone heavier than what I thought was my heaviest. I need to lose about 3.5 stone but want to lose 5. Eugh.


#8

Sure. Will try and stick with it this time. My endocrinologist said she’ll be mad at me if I show up in May not having lost a fair amount of wait and she’s the nicest person so I would feel terrible.

Found the suitcase at Christmas with my clothes from a few years ago all in size small and they’re such good clothes (the kind I couldn’t afford nowadays), so that’s given me a kick of motivation.

:crossed_fingers:


#9

we can do it scout!


#10

Weighed myself on Boxing Day, was pleasantly shocked at the results. As such I’m aiming to cut the booze right back and then reduced my bread eating/gluten intake. Even without exercising, this should see some weight loss. Going to be back on the bike once life has settled down a bit for exercise.

I’m using 18st 10 (118kgs) as a starting weight and want to be down to 16st (101kgs) by my wedding in August.


#11

I don’t have scales at my house, but my parents do have a set at theirs, so every Christmas I make sure to weigh myself after Christmas dinner, and then again, post post-prandial poo.

12st 0lb > 11st 12lb in just five minutes.

:poop:


#12

I weighed myself when I was in labour then when I got home and I’d only lost 6 pounds (was hoping to be at least a whole stone different from one day to the next.


#13

Weighed myself the other day and at 91.7kg. Think 85kg or a little less is a decent target. Don’t think I’d like to get much thinner than that given my size


#14

Forgot this

)


#15

i lost a whole stone in a week when in hospital in 2017, really should’ve kept that up but just ate loads of malteasers and drank loads of ribena whilst i was off sick from work and then just got fatter from there once i could drink again. sigh.


#16

Argh I’m huge. I’m in for this but not very confident in my ability to actually make it happen. Want to lose 2 stone this year and I think then one more the year afterward. It’s probably a fantasy tbh.


#17

Yeah I’m in


#18

You can do it :blush:


#19

I genuinely wouldn’t even be able to guess what I weigh

could be anywhere between like 12 and 15 stone probably

no idea


#20

my hair alone probably weighs about half a stone
