Thanks for sharing Rick.

Are you legit not having any dinner tea some days? Given you're playing  football are you not Hank Marvin after that?

I caved in and weighed myself after a week of activity and good food. (At least 10k steps a day, meat, fish, green veg, 1x boxing and 1x circuits).

Lost 7lbs this week. Happy with that. Need to keep this momentum!

Just to add, defo not feeling hungry either.

Yeah, I normally go to bed early and read or watch telly because if I'm downstairs, I'll snack. It depends when I had lunch too. Last Friday I didn't get lunch til about half two so that wasn't too bad.

Despite knowing how it would affect me mentally decided to weigh myself this morning and find out I've put on two stone in six months and none of it good.

Considering how labour intensive my job is and how much I walk every day its even  more troubling for my brain when I hardly like eating (love the process of cooking but mainly for others) yet as soon as I do its putting on such a heavy weight gain.

Probably going to spend the next few days now meticulously planning every calorie until I get to a point I can shift the weight and not further damage my self confidence or anxiety any further.

Good luck, mate. Although if I was to offer some advice, I'd drop the Special K in the morn and have some scrambled egg or boiled egg. Much better for you.

I have breakfast at work so it's normally cereals or porridge. Special K is just what I'm haivng at the moment. Was on Bran flakes previously.

Rick, I often made a 3 egg omelette the night before and then warm it in the microwave in work for breakfast. Not as good as a fresh omelette but very welcomed on the cold mornings.

I'll try and have more eggs next week. Maybe make a big Fritatta and take that for breakfast. Scrambled Eggs just make me want toast though. Loads and loads of toast. God, I miss toast.

I've started running again after about 2 years. I usually get bored after a month or two and that'll be it for a while. How can I keep the motivation going? I'm thinking about setting a few targets, like trying to do 100 runs this year, gradually increasing distance up to 10k. Are there any apps that can help you manage that whilst tracking progress? I used to have miCoach but no idea if it's still a thing.

I gymmed. 

I was given a pretty tailored workout by a PT (I didn't ask for it, it just happened) who set up a routine of jogging, weights and floor exercises for me. I wouldn't have chosen to do weights - I thought those were for posey types just looking to get meaty (prejudice all mine), or for fit people looking to tone up. But she explained that the building of muscle forces you to work harder to burn energy. Good tip. She left all the exercises on my own sheet for me to tick off each time. 

I nearly enjoyed it. Just need to make it routine...

Just pretend it’s a living entity and also pretend you’re vegan, then you won’t want it anymore. It’s that easy.

Good stuff, pal. Gutted that you don't look like Steve Austin though.

I do weights at the gym for toning. It does make you feel like a dick standing amongst all these knobheads slinging tons into the air doing twenty reps of 20kg or something.

Lost 1.2kg this week. Gutted after the effort I went to. Trying to convince myself it's all my muscles outweighing the loss!

Give it six months of the gym. 

(Not that I can grow a beard for toffee)
