    Hi all
    I have lost another 2lbs but the wobbly belly doesn't seem to be going so I'm starting 30 day shred today.

    MFP seems to have gone quiet, where is everyone?

    Hi ladies, I forgot to post this week! Went to WW on tues and was down 3lbs! That makes up for my half pound loss the week before! I dont even know how I lost it, went to glasgow to see family, and ate a fish supper, mcdonalds and chinese takeaway over a few days! Still sticking to the 30days shred (though i didnt do it for 4 days whilst away)

    Hope everyone else is having a good week!

    By the way, anyone read or heard anything about the alternative day fasting? I read an interesting article last week, so this week (tues and today) I've reduced my calorie intake to 500cals- you only need to do it twice a week, and eat what you want the rest of the time.

    Hiya ladies do you mind if I join?

    Im Jade 23 and I have a 18 month old sob Frankie :) I went on a diet september and managed to loose a stone and have kept it off thankfully, how ever I still have 2 more stone I want to shift to be back to my pre preg size 10, I was doing so well last time til my scales decided to die then it went downhill.

    Im going to aim for 1lb a week for 7 weeks starting Monday and I keep track of my food through myfitnesspal which really helped me last time, so if anyone has myfitnesspal we could add and keep eachothers motivated :) Hoping to have lost 7lb by 7th Jan as xmas will be tough then after new year aim for 2lb :) Good luck everyone x x x

    Hey everyone :hugs:
    Ive added peoples My Fitness Pals names to the first post in our thread. Please check and if Ive missed you let me know ur MFP nameand I'll add you. Also if anyone wants weight added let me know (starting weight / current weight / target weight).
    Im back on track, trying to get from 13st to 12 1/2 by xmas if possible. But I'll be happy with 3-5 lb loss as xmas is getting close and i fell away for a couple of weeks.
    Lets help each other thru this.
    Ive started with the NHS 0-5k free podcasts - meant to get u running but the weather here is so miserable and i dont have a treadmill or go to gym but i do have a cheapie exercise bike so am doing it on that! Did 23 mins of wk1 last night & had the sweat pouring off me.
    Will see if I can do a mix of exercise bike & some running with it. Will do wk1 for a couple of wks, as well as my fertility yoga dvd xxx

    Hi all, I'm actually a lb up this week but its definitley from working out, I can see a difference in definition. I'm 8 days into the 30 day shred now and will not be losing heart!

    3-5 lbs loss by Christmas is totally doable threebirds as long as you can say no to the xmas treats. It's hard in December and I do love a Snowball when wrapping presents!

    Hi everyone, hope you have all had a great Christmas and hope the New Year brings us all those lovely BFP. :flower:

    Is this thread still going ok? I am going to try to make an effort with this now. I have to admit I don't need to lose that much weight but I need to lose something so I am lighter on my feet. For those of you who do not know me well, I am a runner and I am in the throws of marathon training at the moment. I have signed up to do Paris marathon in April. :haha: So although I have started training since before Christmas, my eating habits are awful and I need to sort them out if I want to run without struggling and I also need to lose the few pounds I put on over Christmas. In actual fact I am going to try losing a stone but I am also going to be eating a runners diet which will include nuts etc. I am also planning on giving up the alcohol with the odd glass of wine for a treat (ok that's not really giving up :haha:).

    I am back to work on Monday so I am setting that as my starting day and as well as my 4 days running, 1 day core training I am going to dust of the 30 day shred DVD too.

    My username for MFP is shinimul :winkwink:

    Hey Irish Eyes,
    Have you done a marathon before?
    I did my first one last April :)
    I was just going to say, be careful trying to lose weight while you're running such high mileages. I tried, and it went horribly wrong! You sound a lot more sensible than me though! :)
    I tried restricting my kcals to 1500 per day which, obviously, is nowhere near enough when you're running 30+ miles per week. This lead to me bingeing terribly, which then lead to me restricting again. It was a horrible cycle that I couldn't get out of.
    Anyway, like I said, you sound more sensible than me, but I just wanted to share my story. I actually ended up gaining weight, during training, due to the bingeing :-(
    Good luck with your training! I'm jealous! xx

    Hi all

    I am back on it too! I have been sticking to my diet well (today is day 5) and I will weigh myself on Friday. I put on 5lbs over the last few weeks as I have been poorly.

    Yesterday I did the 6 week ab routine and today I have done 30 day shred. DH and I are doing the 6 weeks ab programme everyday and I will throw in the shred when I feel motivated in the mornings.

I'm joining slimming world tomorrow and ill be weighed there so wil restart with that as my start date iykwim :haha: my home scales are down to between 110-111kg so not sure if they're accurate as 2/3 kg seems a lot to lose in 4/5 days.

    Hi ILoveShoes, this is my first marathon.
    How many calories do you think is best to eat during training though?
    MFP has me down to 1200 a day plus whatever I gain from training. Do you think this is ok?
    Well at the moment I am feeling so stuffed so maybe it is ok.

    Well, I am onto Day 2 of eating well (ha! if you can consider the slice of carrot cake eating well but I am still factoring treat in :winkwink:). According to MFP I over ate a bit on calories yesterday but I am not going to stress about that as I have it set to lose 2lbs a week.

    KRobbo whats the 6 week ab routine? I still haven't got into the 30 day shred. I planned to do it before work but so far I haven't been getting out of my bed in time enough and I am mainly running in the evening.
