- In the last couple of days weight has leveled off and even gone up slightly, wtf is that about?



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




Well I've been saying for years that it's all latent muscle

I've lost a stone since Easter, though my weight does fluctuate at times. Hoping to lose a bit more soonish. Defo feel better for it as loads of my trousers barely even fit.

I'd recommend MyFitnessPal, loads of us at work have been using it and it's done wonders for us all.

I can't remember if I've said this in this thread anywhere or not, but my absolute toppest tip for when you all hit your target weight (or when you get to a point where you have to buy new clothes) - BIN EVERY SINGLE ITEM OF FAT CLOTHING YOU HAVE. Don't even keep one pair of trousers for old time's sake, or that before and after pic (or, if you have to, bin them as soon as you've taken the photo).

That is now my incentive to keep the weight off - if I put back on any more than half a stone, I have to buy a whole new wardrobe. And I can't afford to do that.

So - remove temptation!

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.



Dropped stone #2. That was a bit of a fight. Plenty of time in the gym to shift that one. Those jeans fit me a treat though, wore them out today.

No rest for the wicked. On to number 3. Got a nice T-shirt hanging in the wardrobe I've not worn for years to motivate me for this one.

Good luck spaldron! I'd say it's more fun running by the canal than in the gym anyway.

Took Great Badhir's advice and just been through my wardrobe throwing out roomy clothes. No turning back now.

I watched that Horizon programme 'the truth about excercise' a few weeks ago, they advocate 3 minutes per week of high intensity training...http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01cywtq

I've since bought an excercise bike and aim to do the 20sec burst thing every second day...and every other day 20mins or so of 'normal' cycling.

I've also quit smoking (except for maybe at the weekends) and started drinking green tea!

BRING IT ON!!

Lost 20lbs since April. A stone to go to hit my target weight.

Already feeling much better, fitting into some of my pre pregnancy clothes for the first time in four years and being far less lazy (walking more despite the crappy weather). One thing I do need to do though is start toning up, bums and tums mostly and I was wondering if anyone had any tips/programs to recommend?

I came on to ask the same question. All my fat goes to my stomach and I've had 4 surgeries on it as well so have no muscle tone there.

Out of curiosity What do people find is the most effective approach diet-wise: lots of snacks/light meals every few hours or proper but healthy meals 3 times a day?

Reb, Harls - I have the same problem around the belly. I'll let you know in a few weeks if what I've just started doing works...

During the day I graze - apple or yoghurt for brekkie first thing and then I have a little something (piece of fruit, or a HEALTHY cereal bar) every hour or two until lunch, then usually one whole sarnie, and then another little something at about 2pm. I stop then cos I have some mental hills to cycle up back to my car after work, so I don't want cramps or owt. When I get home, I then have a proper (healthy) meal for dinner and sometimes will have another piece of fruit or another cereal bar, or sometimes a couple of digestives or summat, after that. Then nothing - I try not to eat anything after 7pm. I've heard more than one health, diet and exercise expert say that you should always go to bed slightly hungry, and deal with that by drinking some water.

But that system has helped me maintain the weight. I was just having three normal meals a day last year, but I found that my weight was yo-yoing far too much and I was putting weight on faster. With the grazing, it now seems to be more balanced.

Another thing I will say is that you should still have the OCCASIONAL treat/blow-out, especially if you have reached a final target weight - keeps the body used to dealing with all those complex and unhealthy fats, otherwise if you cut them out completely forevermore, you might get to a point two years down the line where you eat a single small chocolate and then find you've put on about 5 stone. I'm exaggerating obviously, but I've personally found that it does help, and ALL of the "legit" diets, as far as I know, also allow specific room for treats.

I find the healthy snacking works best as well. Nothing drives my cravings more than feeling hungry between meals.

You could try some basic pilates and start to build your core as that pulls things in even without losing weight.

This one isn't too bad for a do it yourself type of thing.

Congrats man. That's really inspirational. Just gone through the 2.5 stone mark. Holiday 5 weeks off and think I'll be shy of my target, but hey it's a long term plan.

Did my first session with weights on Friday. Can't straighten my arms out today

Thanks man, congrats on your goal! 2 and a half stone... 35lbs! You've lost a small gymnast or a jockey's worth (probably )

I'm going to do one of those lame before and after things later *cringe* But I feel I have to...

I've dropped 17.5lbs so far using Weight Watchers. Down from 23st3.5lb to 22st in 2 months. Pretty happy with that I must say.

Anyone on here use Livestrong? I found it brilliant. Discovered I was eating anywhere between 500-1000 more calories a day than I should have been (even when I was dieting) and have lost 4 inches off my waist over the past 12 months mainly because of using their website to track my calories, exercise etc. I think the trouble with any form of dieting is the 'kidding yourself' part ... oh, this isn't really THAT bad ... but if you keep track of every calorie you can see where you're going wrong. And obviously if you're sensible you can see when you've got some calories spare to have something treat wise. Obviously doesn't work for everyone, and yes it is a bit prescriptive, but I found it really ace. I suppose it's a little like Weight Watchers, although Livestrong also counts things like fat content, salt content, cholestorel etc, so you can see if you're going over your recommended daily allowance in any area.

As I said earlier in the thread, I "binned" 99% of my fat clothes and bought a whole new wardrboe.

That is, seriously, the best incentive for me to keep all the weight off, cos I cannot afford to buy new clothes again if I put any terry back on.

Whilst it was hard getting rid of my geeky t-shirts (some of them, like my incredibly rare and quickly recalled mis-printed official Evil Dead 2 t-shirt with Evil Dead 1 logo, are impossible to find now), it's been nice buying new clothes that fit and you find (well, I did anyway) that you can wear things you wouldn't have previously thought would suit you.

Plus, every time I put on one of my "SMALL" shirts or t-shirts, or my 30" waist trousers, I think back to when I wore "XL" shirts and t-shirts and 38" waist trousers. It's a great feeling.


PS, update on the spare tyre/muffin top shifting - not much noticable progress as yet, but it's only been a couple of weeks, so I will persist and follow up with my routine if it works.

Do you run? One of the best ways to get rid of a muffin top. I was amazed at the difference and how quickly i noticed the difference

I did try running a few years ago, chopping and changing with my cycling (three days cycling, two days running, from and to the same point on my work commute – roughly two miles from my car to my office). I did lots of research and did it sensibly – proper running shoes, stretching and warming up, easing myself in with light jogging and frequent walking breaks, changing which side of the road I was running on every so often to take into account camber, etc etc etc. After two weeks of this I was in agony with knee pain, to the point where I couldn’t climb stairs and couldn’t walk without a severe limp. After a week of pain and no signs of it getting better, I went to the docs and had a scan/x-ray. Turned out I’d torn (rather than completely snapped) the ligaments in both knees. Doc said four to six weeks they would heal and I could start running again.

In the interim period I went to a mate’s wedding and got chatting to one of his mates who is, what I would call, a professional runner – that is, his job is basically a running advertising board and he is paid by sporting goods manufacturers to wear their logos on his clothes and then run in marathons and the like (he’s not an Olympic runner). Anyway, I explained my then recent problems to him and his response, which was completely sincere, was “some people just shouldn’t run, and I think you’re one of them”. His (professional) opinion was that if that happened to me after not very much light running, then if I pursued running again and stuck with it, it would almost certainly lead to knee problems in later life. He suggested that cycling and other lower impact cardio exercise was far better for me.

So, basically, I took that advice and haven’t run since (although I can walk for England).

But, interestingly, I have read more than one report that cycling is the best way to shift the muffin top…

(not that it’s worked for me)
