Ok, so i weighed in this morning... Only lost 1.5 this week. Brings my total loss for my first month to 7.5kg it's my smallest loss yet I guess it's only to be expected, Still on track for a 6-12 kg loss in the next ten weeks :) which is what i'm aiming for. I'm going to go insane starting today... I'm desperate to make it to 10kg loss by next week. Only another 21.5kgs to go. :D Pumped W0ot!

Hi,

Thanks for the warm welcome, Ive been hitting the gym hard for the last four weeks and I eat pretty healthy but i have not lost anything, Im still the same weight.

I am amazed at your great loss, how are you guys doing it, any tips would be greatly helpful.

Cheers

Don't worry sassy it wil happen! What I am doing is exercising:

Monday - boot camp in the morning
Tuesday - weigh in and then something with a friend, usually swimming or gym
wednesday - boot camp in the morning
Thursday - walk the dogs
Friday - boot camp in the morning
saturday - something with my friend, again, usually swimming or gym
Sunday - walk the dogs.

And if i can i try to walk the dogs an extra couple of times (cos they're so big and full of energy it's unreal)

And eating wise i'm sticking to 1300-1500 calories a day depending on how much exercise i'm doing, eating lots of Weight Watchers recipes, and stuff out of the biggest loser cookbooks, and other recipes i have that have the calores counted for each serve. i don't plan on calorie counting forever, but until i'm a bit more used to how bad/good foods are i think it's worthwhile! :D i weigh in again tonight, so i can't wait to see the next result! last week's 2.5 was great!

I weighed in last night, and although i only lost .5kg, i have lost 6cm off my waist in the 2 weeks, so I'm very pumped from that. i'm taking it up a notch this week though, going to work hard hard hard!! :D

I weighed in last night... and i'd lost 2 kg!! woohoo!! I'm stoked! and not only that, i had my fitness tests for my bootcamp this morning and almost doubled everything! at the start i did 4 pushups off my toes and 12 off my knees in a minute and 22 sit ups in a minute, and ran only level 2, 8 on the beep test. this morning i did 17 push ups off my toes, and 15 off my knees in a minute, and 47 chin ups! and ran level 4, 7 on the beep test. so I'm so happy! :D :D :D
