Hey Guys,

This is a place just for you to discuss your weight loss journey and anything else you'd like.

We have weight loss issues as well and just like the girls, it helps to talk about our challenges and successes.

I hope you like it and encourage you to use it.

Scott. :D

Great Idea

Scott,
This is just what we need. I find that all the other sections are overrun by the girls and that it doesn't really apply to myself. I am currently trying to lose weight to get to a repectable fitness level to play football again next year. how bout yourself whats your motivation.

My Motivation

Postby admin » Tue Dec 04, 2007 11:55 pm

Hi Gotnothing.

I have a couple of motivations.

Generally speaking, I want to lead a balanced life and age well.

By aging well, I mean I want to look and feel as good as possible for as long as possible, avoid any ailments that I can have an influence on and I want to be able to exercise for as long as possible too.

Leading a balanced life to me means finding the right mix between my work and family lives and finding the right mix of exercising and enjoying the foods I like.

Another one of my motivations, interestingly, comes from my association with this site.

To a degree, I feel that I represent the site and I want to look like I practice what the site preaches.

Scott. :D

JP,
We can't hold that against. We could definately develop the kitchen feel about here. how are you finding the weight loss is going? I am struggling to keep it mixed up and fresh at the moment?
GO LIVERPOOL.

bad weekend for both of us with our unbeaten records gone... ours very disappointingly without too much of a fight!!

regards the weight loss... well being a creature of habit... I like to keep it nice and simple and keep to what I enjoy.

have been doing two walks a day (at least once with the dog... found some off the beaten track places I can just let him run wild so I can pick up a brisk pace) of about 40 mins a session.

food wise... its 3 weetabix and fruit for brekkie (low fat milk)... either veg soup or ham/smoked salmon sandwich for lunch... and then basically whatever the family is eating for dinner... chicken, steak, pasta, baked and other potatos (no chips or deep fried foods) plenty of veg... fruit and diet yoghurt in betweens...

have cut out all of the rubbish in my diet except for the ocassional few light beers... had a real sweet tooth previously but haven't really had too much of a craving since...

lost 15 kilos in twelve weeks and feeling good... clothes all fitting well though we don't need to wear much in Queensland do we? :wink: All in all feel a damn sight better than I did three months ago which can't be bad... am confident I'll get down to my goal weight by April...

I got married in June and have found that by making just slight changes to the way I have eaten all my life it has made a huge difference. I am planning to play football again next - AFL - but am changing clubs so I have wanted to make a good impressiong. Which is the basis of my motivation. The key to my weight loss so far has been mixed indoor netball. I feel the fittest I think I ever have. But now I am kinda getting a bit bored with it all.
I couldnt bear to watch anymore of the game on the weekend after Reading went 3-1 up I was dumbfounded.

An Arsenal fan and a Liverpool fan eh.

As a neutral, I like watching both those sides and usually barrack for both against any other side except my team, Leeds.

Guess it will be at least a couple of years before I have to worry about our teams meeting, in the Premiership anyway.

Exercise wise, having daylight savings at the moment is making it easy to go for extended walks and stuff after work and for some reason I'm feeling extra motivated at the moment.

Off on a jog I go!

Scott. :D

I was injured playing Rugby 4 years ago, yet continued eating and drinking as if I was training six days a week still. My drinking binges got bigger and bigger and finally I found myself at 160+kgs. I decided a few weeks ago to make some wholesale changes and here I am.

Bear,
You have come to the right place? I put on most of my weight when I broke my leg playing footy as well. Are you planning to go back and play rugby again or is it just healthwise you are working for?

Just healthwise. I injured my neck playing a social game of all things (always save your best hits for your mates) and can never play again. That was a big part of the problem, if I couldn't play competitive sport I didnt see the point in exercising.

good luck with your recovery and weight loss bear... seems like were all a bunch of crocks here lols... never played football (English) again after I broke my ankle over a decade ago... still miss the highs of scoring a goal sometimes.. nothing else like it.. 8)

who knows might play again when I get down to my goal weight... some of my mates still play over age competitions on the coast... reckon it'd kill me though :wink:

When I reach 120kgs I am going to join a social touch football league. At the moment though I would be a major liability to any team (I am toooo big a target), so am not willing to get involved yet.
