But it's a very fine balancing act. Losing weight - pimps easy (you just need will power and physical work). Maintaining the same weight (give or take) month in month out - fucking difficult (it requires hard mental work).



Oh god, this.  Joined SlimmingWorld last year to shed some poundage before the big day and managed to drop about 3 1/2 stone in the space of 9 months.  Then I got married, went all inclusive on honeymoon so ate like a pig, and continued to slip back into the bad habits on return.  So far I've put about 1 1/2 stone back on.

Still, new year, new me - I'm determined to lose it (and more) in 2012 and to keep it off.  The last weight loss was pretty much exclusively down to change of diet, so this time I'll throw exercise into the mix as well and see how that does.

I'm hoping to compete in some BJJ tournaments this coming year so ideally I want to get down to about 11 stone. I'm back up to 13 and a half now (haven't been training for 2-3 months) and I've easily got 2 and a half stone I can lose (stomach and chest). I'm planning on quitting weed in the new year as well so hopefully what I put on as a result of stopping smoking will offset what I've gained by not having the raging munchies every other night

Given what is being discussed here and in the New Year Resolutions thread, would anyone here be interested in an Empire Weekly Weigh In club. My sister does something similar in work, where each week her and a few co-workers weigh themselves and share the glory/shame. She says it's spurred her along loads (that and the fact they throw in a fiver each week for a end of season kitty) but it could be a good way of getting some sort of support group going. Obviously it depends on us all being honest, but I have faith in the majority of people here.

Went to the doctors today for my annual prescription consultation thingy and it turns out I've put on a shit load of weight in the last 12 months, which means I'm going the opposite direction in trying to get rid of this acid reflux thing and will only make it worse. Given how active I am at present does surprise me, but on the flip side, thinking of all the crap I eat, it doesn't surprise me.

Obviously I need to diet, starting now, but it's rather daunting. I lost a load of weight about 7 years ago, but that was a piece of piss. I was on my own and only needed to buy the food for myself. I find it quite difficult when there's me, the wife and the kids to feed. Even more so given that I don't have 2 pennies to rub together these days! And it's gonna be even harder given that the wife makes cup cakes! I'm glad I'm out this weekend!

I know exercise goes hand in hand with dieting, but the doc reckons it's not an issue given I'm on my feet all day at work. Last time I lost all that weight (about 4 1/2 stone I think, in as many months), I had a handy guide given to me by the doctor telling me what I can eat and what I can't. Nothing like that this time. I just wish I kept hold of it! Although last time I was quite the drinker, so I think going tee total assisted with that, whereas these days I never drink so I think things may take a little longer.

Alcohol, on a pound-for-pound basis, is a lot more fattening than most foods and you'd be surprised at the number of people around who are fat merely because of drink - a good acquaintance of mine must be pushing 30 stone now and I know for a fact that he doesn't really eat unhealthily, only has three standard meals a day and absolutely hates junk food. That 30 stone is ALL beer and he is a massive beer drinker.

I think people who can attribute a lot of weight gain to alcohol find it easier to lose weight (as long as they can abstain) and keep it off than people who have had food related weight gain.

I'm not much of a drinker, so it's thankfully not an issue for me (god knows how big I would have got if I was a drinker as well!!!!).

Completely understand how difficult it is with the wife and kids, though. What I ended up doing was, basically, eating different meals to my wife and often forgoing any treats and desserts that she fancied. It was hard at first, but eventually I got into the swing of it and it soon became second nature.

It's made it a bit easier for me lately as my wife has been told by her doc that she has to lose weight (long history of illness) and neither of us want to raise our daughter as a fatty, so now all three of us often eat the same healthy foods, have the odd treat and that's that.

I would also say try not to lose weight too quickly - your 4 and a half stone in the same number of months is, I think, way too fast - it took me about 18 months of doing it sensibly to lose the same amount. I think (having done it both ways) the faster you lose weight, the more likely you are to put it back on, whist a steady loss of 1-2 pounds a week is, I've found, much more conducive to keeping it off permanently.

Good luck!

Juan - Have you tried www.myfitnesspal.com ?

It's working for me. Even if I'm not currently losing weight as I'm not sticking to it quite as strictly as I should I'm certainly not putting any weight on.

It's simple. You enter you height, weight, sex andactivity level and it calculates how many colories you should be eating each day. You then enter which food you've eaten/are going to (as I plan the day before) enter any exercise you've done and then you can see if you're going over your calories. It automatically calculates a calorie deficit for you to lose weight.

Best thing is the App you can download for your phone/iPod, you can just scan the barcode of things you eat and it automatically inputs the calories for you.

It's a real eye opener at first, I get roughly 2000Kcal a day and I soon realised I was consuming 1700Kcal just in my evening meal...

Thanks for the advice guys.

There's no worry of me shifting the weight as quickly as last time. As I said, it was a result of stopping with the booze, which I was quite into at the time!

My wife showed the myfitnesspal.com a few weeks ago. But that was before the doctor told me off! Will take heed this time. Maybe it's time to get on Dance Central again!

I'm just shaking it up with few kettlebells (I invested in a 6kg a 12kg and a 16kg although could do with getting a 20kg now and another 16kg). Doing a few different routines a night (about 15 minutes worth) combined with a session of pilates has resulted in me coming down from a 36 inch waist a couple of years ago to being able to fit into the old 32 inch waist jeans I have had hanging around for about a decade. The good thing about the kettlebells is that most of the routines can be done in an area no bigger than needed to lay down in. I think cutting out pretty much all snacks and reducing soft drinks down to one can every couple of days maximum have also helped.

I downloaded this earlier today and I've been filling it in as I went. So far so good, although I was beginning to think it was broken because despite having 3 meals I had over 1000 calories left in my daily calorie intake.

Then I remembered the cheese... I've eaten 800 calories worth of cheese today! It's a real eye opener, the amount of cheese wasn't what I consider a huge amount.

I've signed up and entered all my business etc. Came in under par today, so job done. I set it at losing 1lb a week, so any more than that is a bonus. I've put my target weight as 13 1/2 stone, which I have achieved before, and I felt fantastic, so it would be nice to reach that again. My favourite t-shirt should fit me again by half way!

I'm gonna start doing Biggest Loser on the Kinect again and start going to play badminton again as well. Should help. Wish I knew enough people around here to play football with!

For Lent I decided to pack in a number of things. Chocolate, Greggs, crisps and in general all the stuff I was eating that was bad for me.

In general I have done quite well and as badir says, it is quite surprising how quickly you slip into a routine. Considering the amount of chocolate and Greggs I was consuming before I quit, I really do not miss them at all and I doubt I will go back to eating them as much as I did if not at all.

I've also been trying to cook healthy meals at home more (despite my work pattern currently making this pretty difficult) but I have some homemade soup in the fridge and have learnt how to make my own bolognese and stay away from the jars of sauce and stick strictly to using vegetables only. Snacks I have been able to change quite easily. When once I would reach for a biscuit I now reach for a Snack A Jack or an oatcake.

The one thing I'm finding it hard to kick is the wine. I don't drink everyday but may have a few in the week and will always have a least one bottle at the weekend. I need it though and if I didn't have a drink to wind down with I think I would quite easily become a heroin addict. It is now my one vice and maybe I will cut it down gradually but my diet has improved in the last four weeks or so so I am quite happy.

I joined that myfitnesspal and put all my stuff in and it says I am way under my limits of what I should be eating. It gave me 2100 cals a day (which I thought was quite high myself) and I've had roughly about 1100 so that makes me feel a lot better about what I'm eating!

I think I've done mine wrong, mine says 1670 cals a day

To be honest that seemed quite low considering I'm a 6ft broad shouldered male, I'm gonna see if I've made a mistake.

Yeah yours seems to low and mine is too high! I just put in the excercise bit that I did seven hours of 2mph walking (7 hours of work) and it said I burned 2185 calories so now I'm up to 2385 cals allowed! I dunno if this is right...

It wants to know how much sex you're having?? I suppose it is exercise

Just downloaded that myfitness app and it looks ace. Looks like it could be quite a challenge, especially as it has allocated me 1200 calories a day . What I love most? The barcode thingy, save having to work out calories or enter them manually. I'll be in Tescos later trying to choose a lunch, scan crazy

I've been trying to lose weight for ages now. Had a really good start and lost 3 stone fairly quickly but I've plateaued and I'm really struggling to lose more. I exercise regularly but then I eat fairly regularly too!

I know it's a simple case of eating less and changing up my exercise routine but it's easier said than done.

Hmmm, this isn't going to plan! Got 51 calories left for dinner I'm sure 1200 is way too low! I've had nothing bad either, lots of fruit and a light sandwich...

1200 is way too low! Isn't a womans average calorie intake about 2000 a day? I think 2100 a day is way too much for me on the other hand, I've only had a toasted bagel and a pear today.

I don't understand why it is that low! All my details are correct

According to the UK Department for Health the average for a woman is 1940. To lose 1lb a week you have to take off 500 calories so it would be 1440.

My old GP(who looked the spit of John Michael Higgins)'s particular specialist field was weight related health issues and when I was in the middle of my major weight loss, he gave me the following SAFE daily calory averages for steady weight loss, maintenance and steady weight gain (all assuming average exercise levels - they do obviously have to be chopped and changed if you do something like run or cycle 20 miles every day and slight tweaks also have to be made for height, but for interest anyway...)

Steady weight loss (male) - 1800-2000 calories
Steady weight loss (female) - 1600-1800 calories
Weight maintenance (male) - 2100-2200 calories
Weight maintenance (female) - 1900-2000 calories
Steady weight gain (certain foods preferable - healthy carbs over fats, for example) (male) - 2300-2500 calories
Steady weight gain (as above) (female) - 2200 calories

I believe anything less than 1500 calories a day is considered unsafe, even for a morbidly obese person, as the body needs a certain amount of calories to function - calories basically = energy, after all.

A big part of this is also changing from "bad" calories to "good" calories, as with the steady weight gain example, where spuds and pasta are much more preferable over cakes and biscuits.

And remember it is generally a LOT worse to be the correct weight but have an awful unbalanced diet, than it is to be overweight through just eating a bit too much.

5lbs lighter after a week.

Although I've been ravenous today. Could murder a big bag of dorito's right now!

Well, lost my first stone. Wish that was the end of the road

Took me 6 weeks. But I'm trying to come down at a managable couple of pounds a week, rather than crashing.

So far, I'm going to the gym every day and doing 12K on the exercise bike and then a 10 length swim.

I've also cut out all chocolate (save for a Jaffa cake every evening ) and cut down on the pints, crisps etc. Replacing them with fruit, glasses of water, ...

Right now I feel a bit more room in some shirts, but I'm looking forward to shedding the next stone as I've a pair of jeans hanging in my cupboard that I reckon I'll be able to sneak into then.

Not looking forward to this weekend, as I'm going to a wedding so that's just gonna be eating and drinking.

The first bit is always the hardest and always takes the longest. Once you've got your will power and a good exercise regime in place, it gets a lot easier and the weight will come off more steadily and consistently (as you say, you're looking for 2-3lbs a week on average). Cutting out booze is probably the biggest help in terms of both health and weight. Just stick at it and don't give up if you have the odd blip and put some back on - treat times like that as an excuse to re-attack it with more gusto.

No worries.

I will also warn you that there WILL be times where you will lose nothing at all, even if you keep your calory intake down and your exercise up, and this may go on for a couple of weeks - again, don't let that dis-hearten you and carry on. I don't quite know what it is, whether it's the body adjusting itself after ridding itself of the old crap, or if it's muscle weight going on, but it's part of the process - stay on it, and you will start to lose again.

Also don't be surprised if you lose quite a lot towards the end of your weight loss period - half a stone fell off me towards the end in no time at all and it just happened to coincide with a time when I didn't weigh myself for a week or two, so I actually had to put a little bit back on!

I'm tempted to post some before and after pics, although I might get in trouble with Seaworld over copyright...

Basically, I was almost 17 stone in 2009, this morning I weighed in at 13 stone 9lbs. The most rapid weight loss was in the last 6 or so weeks though, and I can tell just by feeling my cheek bones and looser clothes. I know jeans stretch for example, but for the jeans I wore today to go from being tight when I did up the top button to slightly loose this morning, in 4 weeks without being worn, that's not stretching.

Ok, I weighed myself before I started my new job and I was 14 stone 13lbs. I have just weighed myself before having something to eat and I currently weigh 14 stone and 3lbs! So, I have lost 10lbs in about 7 weeks.

So, half way through month two.

Positives
- I've lost just under a stone and a half
- Fitness is good (well for me, everything is relative) did 5km on the treadmill this morning at 6.7km/h 1% incline
- I've not got any pangs or hankerings for any bad foods really
- I feel awesome both in body image, clothes fitting me and just having shit loads of energy

Negatives
- The 3 day wedding gig wasn't good for me, I put on half a stone
- In the last couple of days weight has leveled off and even gone up slightly, wtf is that about?
- Bit worried that I'll make the second stone off by the end of the month
- Still got so far to go

Increased muscle mass? Seems likely if your fitness is improving.
