2023 - Get to slinky again


Eating meat
I'm back. I reversed most of my 2021 loss in 2022. Not sure why I fell off the wagon. I'm not sure how high I got as I half started a new regime and didn't weight mysalf. This past week, I've eaten very well - mainly carnivore with some dairy, two meals a day. I'm 4lbs down last week. I don't know what my starting weight in January as I was playing around without scales. I do know my size 26 jeans are getting very baggy, and almost falling down - when I filled them at the start of the month. I'm now being inetntional - mainly carnivore keto. So higer fat & protein, very low carb, mostly meat, fish and eggs with some dairy.

I'm going to start a Team 40 thread - as I aim to shed at least 40lbs by Xmas. Anyone care to join me?

OK I’m seriously motivated now that someone I used to follow is back - I’ve joined the challenge and am going to get my head down to take care of myself and reduce my weight to make my life easier.
Hello Hailey,
im doing the challenge too.
there are not that many of us active on here, but that is ok.

i Know that challenges help me
Hi @Kittywinks

That’s great, I look forward to seeing your journey. I follow the old weight watchers smart points plan as I can’t handle Slimming World’s free foods. I’ve been counting points religiously since 2013 and have managed to keep off about 5 stone but it just keeps trying to creep up all the time 😌
Hello Hailey

I have done weight watchers and they were my go to diet club, however I couldn’t find one near where I was living as Im reliant on buses, so I’m doing
Slimming world.which I can walk to.
It wasn’t my first choice but seems to be working
I understand what you mean about the free food
It takes a lot of getting used to.
I’m still not there.

Anyway it does seem to be working.
I am losing weight albeit slowly.
I think the weight loss always feels slower than we would like.

I have lost a stone
I don’t have a signature yet as I have to do 50 posts
That’s quite a few posts before I get a weight signature
I will post my weight etc then
Hi Ali, great to catch up. I'm back too, no idea what happened in 2022, the year just was strange. I'm back with a bang on full on keto.

So I disappeared again and put on nearly 10lbs between March and late August and up into size 26s.

So back again.

I'm now eating carnivore. Lamb, beef, eggs, bacon, and a little cheese and dairy as a condiment.

It's suiting me well. I've shed 25lbs in 46 days, despite a few missteps (maybe 3 times my old shopping habits at the supermarket returned). Most of the time I feel happy and satisfied.

7 weeks to the end of the year.

Maybe I can shed another stone by then. I can certainly get into the teens - just over 9lbs will get . I'd like to start 2024 under 20 stone. It would be a start on getting to slinky so I'm using this thread to track the rest of the year.
Down over another lb over night - 288.2lbs. I'm daily weighing now.
Updated 13/11 287.2lbs 27.4lbs down 8.6 %

I used to have a bowel movement daily. Without the fibre of veggies, wheat and beans, my bowels move once every 2 or 3 days - so that can make a difference to my daily scales!

Today, I broke fast with an omlette with a little cheddar and a second meal of roast lamb shoulder, and a red pepper roasted with anchovies. I'm rarely eating veggies - but do so occassionally.

Today I am 2 stone down, at 286.6lbs in 80 days carnivore -
11 weeks and 3 days or
21.92% of 2023. I wonder what I can achieve in the 47 days, 6 weeks and 5 days or
12.88% left of 2023. At least I hope to be into the teens.

Yesterday I broke my fast mid morning with a 3 egg omelet, and then ate early evening 4 strips of bacon, some lamb and cream. 2 good filling meals.

Today I broke my fast with a 3 egg omlet. Early afternoon 2 eggs mayo. A small snack of cheese en route to a mtg at 6.45pm, then afterwards bacon and an egg. So lots of eggs today.

I wore some linen trousers to the mtg as my jeans are tatty and baggy. A few weeks ago they would have been hard to do up. Now they are a perfect fit. Both jeans and linen trews are size 26 but they must be very different measurements.

I am missing the signature and the weight tracker in the left hand column. Have they gone forever?

Today I have ticked up - 287.4lbs. No drama. Broke my fast with a three egg omlet. More later.
Daily weighing - but sometimes tick up or down a lb or two. Gently shedding weight. 28.4lbs down to 286.2lbs / 20 stone 6.2lbs in 93 days

Not sure I'll make it to 40lbs down before the year end as that would need 11.6lbs in 4 weeks. At least, I should get into the teens for 2024 with another half stone off.
