So, following on from my announcement came up with a great idea to have a thread where anyone wanting to loose a bit of weight, or even gain it as I know that's hard for some people too, maybe you want to get more active but haven't the motivation, can come and discuss their challenges, share opinions, success stories etc

 

My goal is to loose weight within 12 months, but to do it sensibly by changing my eating habits and to exercise more.  I'm calorie counting using an ap called my fitness pal, and also using an ap called runkeeper to log walks that i go on so i can see how far i've walked, how long it took me, and how many calories i've burnt.

 

I've walked the dogs different routes going an extra 20 mins or so which they enjoy, and I do too so win win! :D

 

My Monday evening walk is below so my next goal when i do this route again will be to better this, even if it's just shaving a minute off my time

 

miles
2.52
 
 
Minutes
45:38
 
 
mins/mi
18:06
 
 
kcal
267

 

So - if you want to join in, or just spur other members along - feel free :)  No one is saying you have to put up what you weigh etc that's personal to you, but if you want encouragement and a place to log what you're doing where you can look back in a couple of months and say wow look how much i've progressed, why not post in here :)

Great idea if I don't mind saying so ;)

 

Why not make Wednesday a 'pound shedder' night? Is mid week so no excuses for the weekend etc :)

 

I'm sure Marc can make a chart on here and that way it can all be logged, you could call it 'pounds for pregnant'? or 'kilos for kids'? Or just 'weight loss for me'?

 

I dunno, just thinking :)

Good to everyone who joins in :) I got on the scales yesterday for the first time in a year and now I weigh 63.5kgs (don't know what that is in lbs lol) I've never been over 52kgs so now I went and bought a fitbit and now I'm going to track what I do and what I don't and see how I go :D hope it all works out for you Sarah and Marc :)

That's so true.  I think in some way shape or form most people whether openly or not aren't happy with at least something,

They had a segment on daytime TV once about exercises to do whilst sitting in a chair. I think it also involved pelvic floor stuff. Got no idea what the exercises were exactly but the facial expressions of the people doing them were quite something to behold! They looked like they needed the toilet.
