I've been working out at home with a resistance band and running round the park but prefer using proper weights and I find treadmills aren't as harsh on my ailing joints as pounding the pavement. I'll check this fella out though.
I only discovered him recently and he is the real deal. He's Katie Taylor's trainer the woman world champion boxer. He is rated highly also in the fitness world. I've watched some of his YouTube training programmes, and great for indoor and outdoor work outs. He shows that you don't need a lot of expensive gear to get fit and strong. Worth a look.

Creeping up towards 14st after doing precisely fuck all for about 2-3 months. Got lazy. Needs to change. Monday I’m getting back on it - fortunately I can shed weight quite easily when I get going so hoping to lose a stone or so over the next 8 weeks. Alcohol is the big one for me so will be switching back to Heineken 0.
bavaria is ok as well. I prefer it to any other 0%

No drink or takeaways this month. See how we get on. Footy starts Mon in league format so that's two matches a week now as well as various jogs. I'm going to try get to the weight I've eyed up all year and then just continue my normal life banking on the exercise to keep me fairly level which it has been doing the last few months. 8lbs to go

Now I am well into my fifth week of walking aimlessly around a park. I've gone from looking like an extra in a Living Dead film to getting up to a decent pace without stopping and stretching the stuff in my legs as well. My walk even now includes walking up a hill.

Trying to do 3 walks a day lasting for 40 minutes but it is taking a hell of a lot out of me.

Slowly getting there.

I've been shit recently eating like crap and what not but getting back on it, tommorow starting with a 48hour fast then back to eating healthy, had a bad 3 weeks or so due to the loss of a family member but I've not out any weight on tbh.

I always forget to update this. As soon as I do I stop losing weight haha


I am still slowly losing weight and getting close to my original goal. About 4 weeks away from it roughly.

I think once I make the goal I will need to update it and try and lose even more.

Read an article recently that stood out and both were about 2 elderly people who were asked about their longevity ?
The chap who is 87 said he hadnt been to a doctor for 70 years ! And that was to have a test for his National Service.
And the lady who had just reached a hundred, put her long life down to lots of walking as did the bloke.
He still walks everywhere and she lives in the Lake District and has walked all the mountains there and still goes for rambles. Both are teetotal and non smokers too. No mention in the article about genes, but both eat so called bad food like egg and chips etc. I had a customer on my round who died aged 101 and died in her own home and did her own housework. Incredible !

Turns out I didn’t do anything about it. Topped out at 14st1. Heaviest I’ve ever been, so decided that was the point to start working on it. 2 weeks on and I’ve already dropped half a stone whilst still eating well - it’s not about starving yourself, just balance it well and you’re fine.

That said, had a particularly heavy Saturday afternoon/night this week and woke up Monday bloated as fuck. The drinking really does need to stop.

Lost 9lbs through Sept. (no drinking or eating rubbish).

Had takeaway and 4 lagers Fri to celebrate and felt bloated all weekend so whilst I'm still motivated going to keep it up until mid Oct. Down to 13'9 which is my lowest since god knows when

I swear every time I post on here about doing well. I get stuck on a weight.

Since the last time I posted I have now been stuck at the same weight for 2-3 weeks.

Staying positive as I have done well so far. But would be nice to finally shift this bit of weight that doesn't want to go !
