ouch this is not good maybe I'd better lose 40 pounds

body fat 34.5 %

mystic Jim's prediction

first week possible weight loss 6lb most of this will be fluid

fat % will jump up to about 36% as fluid leaves and your weight goes down you have a higher % of fat left

stopping drinking not a problem i'm very strong minded

I've never smoked no probs there ' sweets puddings take or leave, BREAD i love sandwiches big prob

fat free milk after a week normal milk tastes funny

i'm gona join a gym today

crap all this weight problem i've no one to blame but me i put it all in my mouth on the end of a fork or poured it all in from a pint glass

any one else got a load of weight to lose please let me know how your doin it and how your doin doin it and just how your doin

I need to lose some weight - IME it's either slow or time-consuming. Cutting down

on calorie intake is the slow way, and not easy. Exercising is the fast way, but

takes time out of one's day. I found walking very good - a few years ago (8?) I

lost 3 stone in less than two months by walking to the pub every day (twice at

weekends), having a few pints, and walking back. This with a low-fat diet with

plenty of carbohydrates and just enough protein. I need to lose about 25Lbs.

This time, I think that I'll combine a lower-calorie diet with much less exercise -

I'd probably be OK with about 40 mins. daily.

I was asked by a couple of old ladies in the pub whether or not I was a model!

That was on 9 miles a day, and twice that at weekends. All that and beer too!

Wonderful.

Are you certain that (2) is a good idea - look what happened to Mr Atkins

Far healthier is low fat high carbohydrate and fibre, moderate protien with plenty of water

I've had quite enough worry with my eldest daughter (ab)using that diet - short term gain for long term problems.

Best of luck with it.

Best diet I've ever been introduced to is the diabetic diet. Good friend of mine lost 120 pounds on it, and is still fit! Problem with the fad diets is you might lose weight fast, but you typically gain it right back! Just don't give up :)

OK,finely some thing I can talk about that I know about.

first thing is that you need too know is that fitness is 24/7 program.

And you picking the worst time too start,right before the holidays.I can be done,you have too WANT it.Find or by a stationary bike,Put it right i front of your TV,They make some that accommodate a PC or lap top.But in front of the TV is best.I don't care if only ride for ten minutes a day.Make good use of your idle time.

If you are thinking about getting into MMA or anything like that,stretch.stretch.............stretch,mkae it part of your daily life.The most common down fall of some one trying too get in shape is fatigue and injury.

Don't starve your self,you can still eat,eat good,but small meals through out the day.Walking is a good way too start on your road too wellness.

I will give a link too one the best web sites I know so you can do some reading and get educated.You can do this,just baby steps.

And last but not least,track your progress,you will go up and down,thats normal.Fitness is a lifetime commitment.

And about number seven? IF YOU BUILD IT,THEY WILL COME!

www.shapefit.com

I have more if you need them,but this has all the links you need.

I'd cut down on fat, not bread, etc. Have it, and potatoes, and so on, but don't

have butter, margarine, oil, etc. on it/them. Don't eat any processed food at

all, either. Lots of fat can be hidden in that sort of stuff.

Nothing wrong with bread and potatoes - it's the stuff that goes on 'em!

If you've lost "a few pounds" in the little while since you started, then you

should congratulate yourself, and keep at it.

It may help to "always leave yoursely just a *little* bit hungry" after a meal.

Hey, Jimbo...

So, you have 7 new goals on your list, and very targeted ones, too.

Would like to know how you are coming along.

Also, as a professional reminder that may help you...

It is perfectly okay (and, in fact, even highly recommended) to lose only one to two pounds per week. No more than that is fine for long-term success at weight loss.

See you in a few. Please keep me posted.

Jimbo honeybun, I'm a fellow lardy and send love and cuddles (if we can get our arms around each other that is!!hee hee)

I've tried slimming world in the past - you have red and green days where you have either protein or carbohydrates and 'free' food and add a small portion of the other. And 'sins' for the stuff you don't really need.

I am really bad at denying myself all the great foods that I love - puddings, cakes, choc etc so I'm almost doomed to fail before I start.

I have also tried reductil on prescription which helped me lose 3 stone (42 pounds)

but I went back to my old eating habits and put it all back on. These things will work but only if you're prepared to accept that any changes you make are for life - which I wasn't.

Exercise is also a problem for me because I cannot do any weight bearing stuff nor anything too repetitious as I have a condition that makes that very painful.

So I've sort of resigned myself to being the size I am, which isn't horrendous it's not like I need to lose the weight of a cow or something. i get a bit fed up sometimes clothes shopping but the main thing is that i like me as I am, my hubby still loves me and so do my family.

So I've decided to accept me for what I am and just get on and live my life to the full. End of sermon:wah:

I think weight loss really becomes an individual thing - what works for your body type I mean. Ive had to watch my blood pressure since I was 16 (lucky me) so weight is always an issue for me and over the years have yoyoed almost as much as Oprah!!! In 1999 I lost 23 kilos ( not sure what that is in stone) and have never put it back on :D my main tricks are these Jimbo:

1. I never eat after 6pm ever

2. I do not touch anything white - bread, rice, potatoes, cream, eggs as soon as I do bang see ya fav pair of jeans - I mean I put on 5 kilos walking past a bread shop man!!!! Dont ask what happens if I actually WALK into the shop ;)

3. I eat a huge breakfast, average lunch and a small dinner

4. Its not just the fat content to look for on packets its the sugar!!!!! bad bad bad

5. Full strength soft drink - or is it pop/soda to you guys? bad bad bad

6. I drink 3 litres of water every day and eat fruit 3 times a day

7. Eating out - no garlic bread, no creamy carbonara and always ask for an extra salad instead of fries and drink a huge glass of water before you go out.

8. Walk walk walk - its the best weight loss exercise known to man. It may take a few extra weeks b4 you see results compared to higher intensity workouts but once your body is into it there is no stopping that weight coming off.

Like I said its all individual and some of my tricks may seem extreme to folks but you have to do what you have to do and its important to know and understand your body. And you certainly can tell the diffference in your bodys performance, you sleep better, have more energy and the brain likes it too!!! Good luck matey

This is where I have a problem - I eat every three hours on the dot - 9, 12, 3 ,6 ,9 ,12, and the last meal is probably the largest.

I wish I could loose weight!

Hi Jimbo,

I've been out of the Forum Garden for a long time, but your post made me want to help. I lost about 25 lbs. a year and a half ago and have kept it off. I went from a size 10 or 12 to a size 4. There was no cutting out any specific type of food other than junk food. We all know if something is really good for us or not. Junk food: potato chips, sugary snacks, candy, honeybuns, etc. have calories but no nutrition. I no longer consider those items as food. You should eat snacks, but healthy ones: apples, bananas, carrots (baby carrots are best) and citrus fruits. I will eat nothing from a fast food restaurant - they can pack extra calories in everything! A nice restaurant serves too much, so take home half of it and you have another good meal for later. The main rule for weight loss is: if it is good for you, you can have it in moderation. If it is not good for you, just don't eat it. I try to eat something every two to three hours, but only veggies and fruit for snacks. It might seem like you can't do without your regular snacks, but after the sugar gets out of your system, you really don't crave it anymore.

Exercise will help a lot, and so will taking up a hobby to combat boredom. I think we often overeat just because of boredom.

Hope this helps:)

Jimbo...

I never heard back from you about your weight loss progress or status. Just curious to know that you're still motivated and on target. You asked for help, as well, to the other members of ForumGarden, who almost all appear to extend to you good will and well wishes.

I know how valuable it is to have a support team, even better, some who really and truly recognize and relate to your experience.

Give me a shout back, if you can. I'm certainly rooting for you, as well.

Most of the items on your intended list are right on time.

See you shortly.

Sincerely,

K e n

I have this on my MP3 player, and it's the only workout that makes me sweat (Spinning and circuit training don't)

I've done the Bas Rutten work out with a heart rate monitor, and my heart rate went right up to 182. It's not a fat burning workout certainly, but it's great for overall cardio fitness.
