Krystle's journey to Goal- Exercise!


Gold Member
Right i should prob put this in the Exercise section... and maybe ill post in there to at some point..
but i wanted to put my exercise i do on here.
ive tried putting what i eat.. what i weigh... and i find that sharing what i do, and what i dont do.... is healthy for me.

ive got about 35lbs to my goal... and im slightly (OK majorly) stressing about not fitting into my dress in about 18 weeks time.

so i would love feed back from you all. (postive and negative)

Hope you are all well, and if anyone wants to join in writing what they have done you are all welcome to.. the more the merrier. :)

each day i exercise (or dont exercise..) i will come on and put what i have done. these will be in the form of weights and cardio. and some other things like Aquacise as well... :)

so today being Monday and my weigh day.
my scales come in at 12 stone 7lbs (i think sw are going to show something a little more than that (as they always do.)

i am going to also put my measurements on here also, just so i can keep motivated... and see somewhere im putting them that its going to happen, im going to get into that dress!

so today was pretty intense at the gym today

Have just seen this, Kes. Look at your measurements and how far you've come with them, that's amazing. You'll be in that dress no bother, especially with all that exercise. Well done,

Go you :) Keep it up xx
Hey Kes, you have done brilliantly so far and you're obviously keeping up the hard work, all that in the gym would kill me!
You'll get into your dress no probs and look amazing!

im extreemly confused at the moment, and i am hoping its just down to the fact ive built muscle.
as ive kept to 1200 cals, and done all of the above this week, and so far ive put on a pound... hmmmmmmm
i have no idea how to change this, and how to fix things...
Im not really sure what to suggest as you have been so good eating and excercise so I imagine eventually it will change over to a weight loss, As always with doing alot of fitness you may have lost inches this week so maybe dont worry unless its the same again over the next week or so

If you're doing weights then you are bound to build muscle, which in turn will increase your metabolic rate but could lead to confusing scale readings hehe.

You're best bet is to keep an eye on your measurements rather than your weight that will give you a better reading on if fat has been lost or not.

Also mid week weigh ins are a bad idea, weight fluctuates for varying reasons (I'm probably practicing to the preached but I'm trying to help hehe). Could be water retention? What's your water intake been like?

Try not to panic, wait until weigh day, check your measurements and drink lots of water! :)


Gold Member
drinking is not a problem... i am a big fan of drinking loads of water.
so there isnt any problem...

thanks though... im sure it is just a case of muscle, and water retention..
i just wish it would show both inches lost and weight loss too... im so impatient


Gold Member
right i had my program redone today, adding in more weights.. (free weights not machines anymore)
and well all i can say is.. im sore now!

if you have any questions about my wording or want to know what it means, just ask.. ill let you know... :)

and im gonna work hard at doing it. :)
Good luck for next month :) May the inches disappear x


Gold Member
I've not done any exercise yesterday or today, as I can not bloody walk! My legs are so sore.... I've got to put myself through it all again tomorrow though as I can't get away with not doing it.

I just hope that my muscles stop hurting so bloody much. I can barely walk!

i forgot my heart rate monitor.... :(

my muscles are SO sore... i wasnt able to walk much over the weekend.
but i was quite supprised that i was able to get done what i did. bring on the cardio tomrrow!
You don't need me to tell you no pain no gain. The fact that you are so sore means you are working muscles you haven't worked before, or at least not as much so that can only be a good thing. Keep up the good work!



Gold Member
working muscles ive not worked before!!! well yes ill agree. and i bloody hope that im doing good, rather than bad....... :)
