Welcome to our new thread :j :beer:
It's Summer time so it's time to shift the lbs and get the figure you've always wanted :j
Welcome to the place where we encourage you not to save £'s but to lose Lb's
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
(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! :j:j
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 :j
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
