hey there guys. i thought i should stick my head in and say hi.

i am officially doing cambridge, but am having to take an extended break due to financial difficulties so am on calorie counting again.

i am getting married in july and would like to lose a couple of stones before then. i have half a stone to lose from christmas and my birthday in the last couple of months still so that is my first target and i hope it will drop off fast as it went on fast.

then it's down to 11st 7 as my final goal weight. probably not possibly by mid-july but i'm going to try anyways!!

Welcome, you have discovered the advantage of calorie counting!
Eat what you want (within reason) and still lose weight as long as you stay in your quota.:)

hi :)

well i have calorie counted before. and it was successful. but i am not great at resisting that little bit extra. but finances leave me with no choice now!!

i am hoping to stay to around 1200 a day. not too bothered if i go a little over on the odd day i struggle but don't want to hit more than 1500. hopefully i'll get my 2lbs a week ish loss with the couple of miles swimming a week.

i went last night. i've started doing breast stroke instead of crawl as i have a dodgy back and this helps it more. but damn are my muscles complaining this morning. and i seem to be developing muscular thighs which is freaking me out a wee bit...

and of course i weigh more this morning which is typical... am going to blame it on the workout :)

yeah deffo! im actualli a lifeguard and swimming teacher! ha my legs r quite big but they dont flab about its weird but ther goin down ha! no worries evn if they go muscular n u weigh more its just the muscle and then muscle metabolises the fat so ur alright!!! yeh i do 1400 not to botherd if i go over 1500-1600 coz im so active :)
how much u got to loose?


Gold Member
about another 3 stones in total i reckon. i'm a tad heavier than shown in my ticker. i want to get down to 11 to 11st 7 eventually. i'm a comfy size 12-14 at that weight... or i was... ha.

abz xx

hello ladies, im a very recent convert(today is my first day!!) to calorie counting. ive never tried it before, and its an interesting concept. I really need to sort out my activity levels ( im rather lazy)
Im using a site called fitday.com, it calculates the calories your eating, burning and restricting. Day 1 almost over :)
lol heyaaa!!! welcome and ull do great :) x
well guys. after introducing myself a friend of mine has handed me a huge pile of weight watchers books and resources that she no longer needs, so i'm going to give that a go. so i'm sorry it was such a brief visit...

abz xx
hey folks

well abz go where the wind blows you i say!

Ok so i was terrible yesterday, but i knew it was going to happen and i did a 4 mile walk to try and soak up some of the over kill on the calories i was going to do.
Had a family dinner
beefstew creamy mash, pastry, brussels and eves pudding with custard, then homemade tablet!!

So i enjoyed it, and i still feel a bit full this morning. I thnk thats me on over indulging for a few weeks.
well done though for doing exercise to make up for it :) most just think ahhh i failed might aswel carry on ! :) good job xxx
