Thanks for doing this Andy. I started one of these threads in 2017 AND 2018, but fell off the wagon both years around April/May. Towards the end of last year I went to the doctor for something else, she looked me up and down, and pointed at the scales. It started with a '2' for the first time in my life, which shocked me but didn't surprise me. It's been creeping on since around 2010, roughly a stone per year, and it needs to stop. Since that doctor's appointment I've managed to lose nearly 2 stone, but after the Christmas excesses I need to get back on the wagon and lose another 4 stone.

Approx weight today 18st 6lbs.

I don't like the scales today.
6.5lbs gain.

I'm eating the same. But have upped my exercise. Walking 4 to 5 miles daily with the dog.

Andy, rome wasn't built in a day
it's a long haul game to get you where you want to be.
I to have ONLY lost 1lbs this week, but I know I could of been better.
Had a bad cold (man flu) which meant I did no swimming this week.
Next week WILL be better.......
If you lost a stone in a year would you be happy?
as I know I would.
Kind regards pete.

I'm still working on trying to stop buying sandwiches/pies for lunch. I'm getting there.

Weight loss is a fickle mistress. Many ups and downs.

I've found in the past that weighing at the same time of day is best and then as few times a week as possible. This avoids the 1lb on/off panics.

Keep up with the walks. It's exercise and stops food thoughts.

I am not going to weigh myself, am gonna let mirror and clothes be my judge, started a training regime called German volume training yesterday, 60% of one republic Max for 10 sets of 10 reps with 60 second rest intervals. I am going to stick with it for recommended 6 weeks whilst banishing sugar, bread and simple carbs. Time will be my judge

I'm weighing weekly.
Pretty much same time on a Thursday.
Buck naked and after being to the loo [FACE WITH TEARS OF JOY]

Also going to start measuring myself. My clothes are much looser.

New gym regime said to improve cardio, burn fat and build muscle so weight may stay kinda steady if other factors improve. It's a HORRIBLE workout though, 10 sets of 10 reps with 60 second breaks. Totally new to me, weight seems laughable for first few sets then impossible for last few!!

Keep it up everyone who is trying, only you can make the difference
