    Hey guys!

    So, i'm a 21 year old lad and i have a lot of weight to lose!

    I would love to have 4 stone gone by X-Mas, i know this is going to be really hard...but i'm going to try my best...plus i hope to use this place for a lot of support.

    Basically, by next summer...i want to be able to walk on the beach topless without feeling like every one is looking at me.

    Anyways, its my second day...and i think i'm doing OK....but i might be under eating..but i am still having 3 meals a day.

    Day one.

    Breakfast - Special K
    Lunch - Ham Sandwich, brown bread, no butter
    Dinner - Special K

    Day two
    Breakfast - Special K
    Lunch - Two Biscuits[ I KNOW, but i ran out of milk and had no time to go to the shop!]
    Dinner - Special K

    I am finding it hard going, not because of the hunger...i can deal with that...but i miss the taste of certain things.

    I have been pretty rubbish with my water but i am geting into the habit of drinking as much as i can.

    Wish me Luck!

    Hi Andy and welcome onboard.

    I'm no expert but it doesn't sound like you are eating enough sweetheart. Perhaps check out some of the forums on calorie counting etc for some ideas and advice.

    Good luck and let us know how you are getting on xx

    Hi Andy :) I agree with Porgeous, it really doesnt sound like your eating enough. With regards to missing the taste of things, I can relate to that so much, but I've found over time that it goes. I don't use butter/marg on my bread either, but I use something else, like Philly Xtra Light, or Light Thousand Island dressing. A lot of it I think is re educating our taste buds :)
    Good luck on your weight loss journey

    Hi Andy, welcome
    You definately should be eating more, and you shouldnt be hungry either, that'll just lead to quick nibbles;) So tuck in!:eat:
    Good luck with everything

    Hey guys!

    So, i lost 5 pounds last week....and i think i MIGHT be able to follow that up again this week, as i have worked even harder!

    I'm pretty happy but am still finding it hard going, esp at night before i go to bed.

    Not to mention the fact i am in a house with two people who eat KFC and McDonalds and Pizza hut every day and dont put on a pound!

    And the gits even go right up to my face when eating it!

    Oh well, no pain NO gain!

    Hopefully i will lose another 5 pounds this week, which will leave a good dent in my first goal!

    I always weigh myself first thing is the morning as it is the most accurate and never later in the day - as weight can fluctuate a lot with fluid etc. and it can be disheartening.

    Hey guys, so i had my second weigh in to day..and i was pretty shocked.

    I lost 10lb!

    I know it comes off really fast at first, and then slows down..but i am still very happy to have lost 15lb in two weeks!

    Now if only those god damn cravings would go away!

    Hi Andy,

    Not suprised you have no energy - you arent eating much at all! if you dont have enough calories (which are energy) your metabolism will slow down and you find it harder to lose weight as your body will conserve more as it thinks its being starved!

    Have a read round the forums and get some healthy eating advice but you need to make sure you are having the all vitamins / protein / carbs etc that you need otherwise you can get v. poorly and screw up your insides.

    Good luck with the losing weight, but you need to look after yourself and be healthier (theres internal fat round organs as well as the fat you can see)!!

    Look after yourself chick.

    Hey guys, thanks for the kind words.

    So, sadly my 3rd week was not great, i had two big drinking sessions with my housemates, and kinda let myself go a bit. Thankfully i did not put anything on.

    I guess i made up for it this week tough, i lost 7lb...so i'm feeling better about it.

    Also, guys is it just me or is the weighing scales YOUR WORST ENEMY during the week, i think i must weigh myself 5 times a day and get really depressed when the bloody thing stays the same.

    I know your only supposed to do it once a week, but i cant help myself. I'm going to ask my room mate to hide it and only give it to me once a week.

    Hey guy's since i have last been on i have lost another 11lb's

    It's has been a pretty bad month compared to September, i really did not try as hard as i could have. i also stopped and ate crap for a full week

    However, if i manage to lose another 2 pounds by the first of November[which i should be able to do, i have lost 2 and a half stones in two months.

    Which is halfway to my crazy goal of 5 stones in 4 months!

    I know if i push myself i can do it! if i try hard! i just need the willpower and the encouragement

    I need to do this, i need to be ready for that last week in July.

    Hello.

    So, this week is going good, i have been pretty good with keeping my kal intake low...i don't think i have gone over 500 any day of the week.

    i think i might have lost a good few pounds this week, and we are supposed to be having a pizza/drinking party so hopefully i can reward myself with that this week.

    Hopefully by the end of November i will have lost a total of 50 pounds, which leaves only 20 to lose in November which is only 5 per week.

    If i MANAGE to do that, i will have lost 5 stone since September first!

    I also came across and old weight watchers book from the start of the year...and if i go by that then my total weight loss is larger by 7lb.

    i was tempted to add it, but it felt like cheating!
