Thought id best make a section here just to make it feel more offical that is a better way to put it.
inside here i will post my goals, progress, meal records etc.

As you may well know from my signature my goal is to lose 10stone.
I started at a whopping 25 stone and am now down to 24 exactly.

My target is to lose the weight inside 2013. bringing my weight loss to 14stone which is optimal for my build.

My food consumption for the loss is using a mixture of calorie counting and general healthy eating, with low carbs but high in protein and fiber.
Am normaly aiming for 60-80g of carbs each day on average.

my current calorific intake each day is around 1000-1200 not the best for a male. but am going with whats worked in the past.
If its not broken why change it :p

I will be weighing myself each monday morning.

This morning was my weigh day and the results where over what id hoped for.
It came in at 7lb weight loss.
At first i thought this can't be right? i decided its down to water weight perhaps i dehydrated during the night.
After drinking a liter of water and waiting 30min before trying agian, was still shocked to see it was still 7lb but with ¼ pound extra.
But we will see next week on what the scales show only time shall tell,

Today was quite filling specially with the main meal. alot of good lean protein and fats which i have hardly any. if at all.
Was a nice change and am sure my body is thankfull for the boost it needs.

I have also ordered a ketosis tests from amazon for pretty cheap get 100 tests with colour chart. for under £8
So will be interesting to see if my body is in some stage of ketosis or my body is just burning fat better than its done before.

Will be nice to see that am not in ketosis then when i actually induce ketosis i should get an increased rate of weight loss so thats good
But we shall see on how things turn out.

I have also set myself the challenge of losing 14lb from now to the end of august
Also 56lb from last two weeks to Christmass

Challenges August weight loss challenge

Great Just as i thought today was looking up ive now hit rock bottom again.
I was out walking my dog and this horrible woman started calling me every name under the sun about my weight.

I felt so embarrassed like the whole world around me was just going dark and caving in.
Am trying really hard to lose this stupid weight ive put on and it really saddens me how i got myself into this state from being slim before.

am just an ugly monster and feel so much guilt for what ive done to my body :(

What the hell? Just some random woman? Don't you dare feel guilty, you should be really proud of yourself for wanting to do something about your weight. A lot of people are too embarrassed to diet or exercise because we presume that people expect us to always be fat. You should infact feel sorry for this stupid woman for being so insecure with herself that she feels the need to shout down someone in the street. You just try and let her not to get to you, just think in a few months how good you'll feel when she didn't knock you off track and your a few stone lighter and feeling and looking great xx don't give up x

Thank you.
I just don't know why people have to be so horrible.
Am just glad i woke up and saw sense and decided to ditch this weight thats stopping me from living a happy life.
Ive not ate anything to make me feel better and i hope it stays that way still. i cant use food as a means to escape lifes stress its just not healthy and its done done me any good at all.

At least its really nice to have somebody to talk to
thanks again.

I'm the same, if I'm feeling any kind of emotion especially if its upset, or frustration I want to pig out. Tonight I'm feeling huge, like I've gained this week and I just thought well I may as well have some chocolate then but instead I walked back out the kitchen and thought I'll never get anywhere if I do this everytime. I thought about it and remembered this week I've had a takeaway and a meal out, something I don't usually have so its a treat and therefore I must expect to at least sts :) people can be cruel, and they are the people that matter least. If I'm feeling down I come on here before reaching for food, most of the time I get the support or kick up the bum I need to keep on track x

What the hell?!?! Some people are such rude inconsiderate pigs!!! She clearly has no life to jut start abusing a random individual for no reason, you should feel sorry for her, she has no life!

The important thing is you ARE doing something about losing weight and don't you let anyone bring you down.

Your doing amazing, well done on your loss so far,

Keep going and keep posting xxxx

Feeling alot better today went out for a walk early this morning when it was all quiet really helped clear my head and continue the journey to this weight loss .
I've also started to prepare the meals for the next day in advance it makes life alot easier when bored lol. So i was looking through the cupboard looking for some spices and right at the back i saw a packet of sugar free jelly. and on the spur of the moment i decided to make some for after dinner.
I just mixed in hot water threw fruit at it and let it set. took around 5min and it turned out all right for somthing that had little to no effort :eek:

That jelly looks scrumptious!

I agree with all of the above comments on what a negative, nasty person that woman is! You can lose weight easily, she will find it a lot harder to lose that mean spirited attitude of hers!!

Take care & keep going you are doing fab!

Yeah i know what you mean.the whole world would be better without them lol.
With the omlette my goal is not to be using really nice ingredients as it would normaly be done but the methods i use is to keep it low in calories yet still taste pretty good.
it tastes lighter but you proberly wouldent notice it too much.

What i do is take 7 eggs Seperate the whites from yolks but keep 2 of the eggs whole to add some fats and extra flavour.
Whisk them without milk or fluid add Salt pepper dried herbs and dried chilli flakes (Personal prefrence)
chop/slice vegtables in my last ommlete i around 4 mushrooms, 7 cherry tomattos, large pinch of red onion,
Put them into a dry hot frying pan adding a little water after the vegtables have taken to the heat. then add a leveled teaspoon of light philadelphia allowed to simmer down.
then pour in the eggs cook on a medium high heat untill you can see the bottom of the eggs turn white then put into a hot oven untill its cooked/no runny egg on top.

Sory if am confusing with the recpie will hope to post the recpie later on if that helps when i get some eggs.

But with the egg whites bulk the meal and allow alot of good protein
Philadelphia is to add some fats along with the yolks
Vegtables for vitamins/fiber.

and its all low in calories for what you are getting in volume.
