    Lose Weight 37 15th Jul 15 at 10:56 PM
    Welcome to our new thread

    It's Summer time so it's time to shift the lbs and get the figure you've always wanted

    Welcome to the place where we encourage you not to save £'s but to lose Lb's instead

    So you wanna lose weight? Whether you want to lose a few pounds or several stone - you've come to the right place! Need a chat, a shoulder, encouragement and advice perhaps or even some downright silliness (even late at night or early in the morning)??

    Pull up a chair and join in the chat, whatever plan you're following to lose weight, be it SW, WW, RC, or just plain old reducing what you eat and increasing the exercise, there'll be someone here that can help and advise, or offer moral support. The more you join in the chat more support you will get from the thread.

    There are plenty of regulars here who follow all types of plan and will be willing and able to help you out or at least point you in the right direction.

    During the course of the week, feel free to post your weekly loss, gain or no change, and see your results in a chart that's updated every Wednesday evening. To help me quickly spot the losses late at night, please post the loss as BOLD and Colourful as possible (Its helps those of us with bad eyes )

    The chart is currently maintained by me, so if you can post your result before 10pm on a Wednesday you will be included on the chart.

    Also you can take part in the 5lb monthly challenge - This is a fun mini motivational monthly challenge, in which the goal of losing 2lb per week, is spread out to 5lb per month. To get started so get your name down quick and post your name and start the new list. You could be Slimmer of the Week, or Slimmer of the Month!

    We also currently have a monthly team challenge so if you want to join one of the teams it's never too late. This month we've a Home v Away challenge. If you want to take part send me a pm with the team you want to join and your starting weight. Then post your loss (or gain) each Wednesday

    Sometimes we also have a monthly exercise challenge this month we're climbing the equivalent of the Blackpool Tower twice a week. We try to make these challenges suitable for all levels of fitness to encourage as many people to take part.

    A few abbreviations:
    STS ~ Stay The Same (No change in weight)
    SOTW ~ Slimmer Of The Week
    SOTM ~ Slimmer Of The Month

    We have plenty of recipes to help you in the recipes thread (link below) and there are links to useful websites below.
    There are some friendly peoples 'Before and After' Pics on Lose Weight 19 and 20

    So come and join us, we're a friendly bunch! There are even one or two gentlemen hiding amongst us! You might even enjoy it

    + 2lb since 13/9/17.

    Started to think about the oncoming winter. As well as the usual local food grocery shopping cycle trips, been out twice to stock up on (food) store cupboard ingredients and bulk (non-food) household supplies. Other than that, still using the indoor exercise bike and do bits of gardening. Diet still a struggle but slightly improved?

    Hope everybody is keeping well.

    Thanks fredsnail.

    Very pleased with a 4.2lbs loss this week.
    Probably something to do with the half marathon on the weekend, and the 10k the weekend before

    Well done x_raphael_xx regarding your results/exercise!

    I've been doing a lot of indoor biking but only one bike trip out (a few miles). Gardening hasn't been so much until today.

    + 2lbs since last Wednesday.

    Thanks fredsnail.

    Evening all, 1.8lb loss for me this week. I've been hovering over the 190 barrier for a few weeks, hopefully now I'm finally past it!
