I know it's late to jump into a July challenge, but I'd like to offer my moral support and empathy.
I have just joined the site, and started my journey 1 week ago.
I posted a thread in the introduction section, which explains just how hefty I am right now and also the routine I am creating.
One week down and it's all looking good, and I am being pretty rigid with both exercise and diet (and removed all emotion from the process). I am weighing in daily, after my morning poo
It keeps a degree of consistency in what I am measuring, so I can see a trend (more important than the actual day vs. day weight loss).
My diet excludes all carbs, dairy, sugars (even fruit is banned) etc, and is instead 5 mini meals of meat & green vegies. Most of the meat is fish, and everything is portioned to the correct weight (dinner meal is smallest, but I am not usually hungry by that stage, after 4 meaty meals). It ends up being about 900g of meat/egg/fish and 1-1.5kg of vegies each day. A few supplements, of course.
Gym is daily and approx. 1.5 hrs, mixing cardio, weights and power/vibration plate.
Any ideas on what else I could do? I am confident I can stick at this for at least a few months despite impending holidays, as meat & veg are pretty universal. My partner is doing the same thing, though she has a P/T and her gym regime is a little different.
