Been on a nose dive the last 2 weeks. I’ve been ill, as has my boxing coach, so 2 weeks of no training has meant a holiday from everything including diet.

I need to change my all or nothing attitude.

I’ve hovered at 14st for 3 months now, however, I’m adding muscle. I’m up by 4lbs since I last went boxing, but that’s mainly crisps & bread.

Anyway, back at circuits tonight. I’m in that ‘can’t wait, but dreading it’ zone.

Feel you pain, Kaz. I've had a crap couple of weeks. Had a lovely embarassing operation that left me unable to exercise and feeling sorry for myself so have been eating shite. Did buy some new kecks in a size 38 inch which probably makes some people wince but is the smallest I've been since about 97. That's given me a bit of a boost and reminder of what I've done so far (I was wearing 54 inch shorts early last year).

well, in around 1 month i have put on 9kg of weight, not exaclty a shock since im eating a stupid amount of food each day (and not enjoying it for the most part) I dont feel like ive put on much belly fat as such, seems to have spread to other areas, i am weight training but i imagine most of the gains are fat. Gaining weight is easy, aint it? fuckkkkkkk 

I was hovering around 7 stone 4 and now i am 8 stone 9

Are you measuring this like waist, chest, neck, arms. That'll give you an indication of where you're putting the weight on.

no, its just what the scale says, just by looking my legs are bigger and fuller, as is my back, shoulders and chest, and by how my clothes feel compared to before 

i look puffy and bloated too

This wont sound like much i know, but this morning i managed to not binge eat and avoided my usual mass of sugar of biscuits and cereal and i feel proud. How long it will last i dont know but still its an achievement, considering yesterday i ate 3/4 of a pack of chocolate digestives in around 5 minuites after my dinner

I have barely done and exercise over the last 16 months since my daughter was born and I finally had a wake up call last week when I went to try on my suits for a couple weddings I had to go to and found that I couldn't fit properly into anything I owned. I had to buy new trousers that are a much bigger size than anything I've ever worn. Fuck this, I need to get healthy again! I've had a gym membership that I've barely used because it's so difficult to work it into my routine with the kid.

I really do want to exercise but would find it much easier if I could do it whenever I want. I've cleared out the garage and bought some of that foam / rubber matting to cover the floor with and am going to make a little exercise space (got a mate coming at the weekend to help me set up as I need a second pair of hands).

Going to try to check in to this thread from time to time to keep me motivated... Really want to hit it hard and get some momentum up!

Maybe TMI but not arsed (pun intended), but I have a particularly nasty case of the Farmer Giles at the moment.

Any sure fire solutions as I don’t want to show my doctor to be honest

Also apparently doing a lot of butt clenches can help to speed up recovery. I don't know if that's proven though.

Preparation H gel. Not fun to apply but works in a day or two. Available at any Boots or larger supermarket.

Cheers all. I heard baths help as well so I’m going to try that for a bit before I start the creams.

My ex said that I should fill a rubber glove with water, freeze it, then just push it back in. Reckon she’s trolling me tbh 😂

Good luck, @Chest Rockwell Excercise will obviously help. Drink lots of water too. It's magic stuff.

Thanks Rick. I think the exercise is the big difference maker for me. My diet is actually pretty healthy now as our planning is better and we have more of a routine, but I do find when I'm exercising I just want to eat healthier food. They seem to go hand in hand well.
