I've lost 8lb since the 3rd January
currently weigh 18st 8lbs, 5ft 10, would like to get down to 15st by Christmas, hopefully it'll give me a lot more confidence (mine is zero at mo, so much to the point that I consider myself hideous, and my weight has meant that one or two women I've fancied I've never had the confidence to ask them out due to this
) and it's also for health reasons (on my Mum's side of the family five members died of heart attacks
In all honesty all I've done to change my diet is to improve my breakfast at work (porridge instead of sausage or bacon sandwiches) cut down on booze (I hadn't drunk a drop from 3rd-30th Jan, only started again due to a trip up north & to be honest I realised I didn't miss alcohol that much at all) & just stop picking at sweets, etc. in the office (the office is where I probably eat badly, as did about 15 of us & as I mentioned in another thread we've all been weighing in weekly). I haven't been a complete saint, but because I've balanced my food much better this time & smaller portions for meals it's seems to be working
I'm planning on joining my local Fitness First next weekend for 3 months, just to see how I go, plus I can't afford a 12 month subscription, and hopefully get fitter & thinner.
According to the BMI I should be 10st, if I have a light skeleton (I don't so I'd look ill) or 13st if I have a heavy skeleton, 15st is where I'd like to get to. We had a health visitor last year who said himself that the BMI no longer works as it doesn't take bone mass into account, I was slightly over average at 3.7, a work colleague of mine was 4.5 & the bloke said it was the thickest bone mass he'd ever seen.
Anyway good luck to all with this, I know it can be a bastard to lose weight, I know I've gone up & down over the last ten years.
Anyway enough of my waffle
