I'd love to go swimming but I can't afford it, well not more than once a week, and I was a member at the leisure centre but cancelled cos we couldn't afford it but didnt give 3 mo this notice so I'm still paying that off so I can't even do a membership. It has to be exercise that's free

Ah I see, in that case do you have any free weights in the house? Dan has some fairly heavy hand weights and at the same time in the summer I used to just watch the tele and so lots of weights, curls and stuff (I don't really know the names I just used to do diff positions) this really helped too. To tone you need to build muscle and weights are way way better for toning than any heavy cardio stuff, you don't get actually muscly so don't worry about that, but strength training is amazing for your body shape x

I need to be strong and cut down on carbs I don't think I eat a lot as I don't eat bread during the week but I do live off potatoes sometimes pasta and rice as well.
Congratulations on the loss
First goal get back to pre steroid weight 11st 9lbs DONE FINALLY
Second goal get my Club 10 11st 6lbs DONE
Third Goal get to first target of 11st 3lbs which would mean a 1.5 stone weight loss
DONE ON 11/06/2013 taken me 23 months but I got there
I might re set target to 10st 10lbs depending on how I get on health wise
Nice and simple
Reset target to 10st 11lbs reached on 23/07/2013 this is it I like seeing 10 something

- Rep Power
Hello to the Tortoise Team !!
Well, after STS on my first weight in I managed to lose 2 pounds today on my second....not great but at least its in the right direction. I do feel as if I have eaten like a pig - always on diet but far too much. I think that I am going to eat the same for the next few weeks until I get the hang of EE to be honest - it might not be the right thing to do but I just think that I will stick to it for longer if I dont limit my food. I have stopped snacking between meals and that for me is really good. I have been eating so much that I haven't wanted chocolate or biscuits so dont want to eat less just yet.
I feel much better, nowhere near as bloated and horrible as I used to (and that is saying something when I am still just over 16 stone ) so I am telling myself that this is the way I need to eat for the very long future and that if I lose weight as well then that is a bonus.
Not sure what this week is going to bring as away in a hotel for 2 nights at weekend. I usually just throw caution to the wind and forget that I am trying to diet so I have the next few days to talk myself into being almost good...saving my syns for it.
Good luck to everyone - told you that I would probably ramble on !!

Kath 2 pound is brilliant!

Hi all I hope I can join you all. Looks like a great thread for support. I'm struggling with motivation. Been 100% since 1 jan with no booze (aaaaaahhhhhhhHHHH!!!) - losses are v slow. Average 1.5 is ok but only due to 1 good week. last 2 weeks I've lost 1lb and 0.5 & I have 3-4 stone to lose. Not sure whether its worth carrying on but am trying to plod on - doing everything everyone advises but no go, just not shifting.. So, think I qualify to join & hope we can support each other to get to our final goals (oh booze challenge ends 14 feb so watch this space!!!)

Haha annya I ate LOADS last night. And today I was physically hungry again but I'm not giving in today. I'm not gonna make weigh in tonight we have MINUS £1000 in the bank so not a spare penny plus I'm not borrowing money to see a gain that's just depressing lol. It is definitely the weather I feel depressed, unmotivated and like I just want to lay in bed eating biscuits. But I won't :/ I felt like I was ovulating last week so hopefully I have a normal period and this is all a symptom of that. I'm gonna have a jacket spud and prawns for tea
