I'd like to lose 17lb by end of 12 weeks - roughly 11/2lb a week. I'm gonna aim to do this with sensible healthy eating and daily walking
I'm focussing more on January right now to get me back on track but it's great to have a longer term goal as well.
I want to lose 14lbs this quarter - I didn’t put anywhere near enough effort in 2021 and I'm determined to turn that around! 🙈
Thanks for running this again @Brambling!! 😊

Tuesday will be moment of truth. CHristmas have literally been sitting around and eating a fair bit and not getting a lot of exercise. So that is why I will wait for a fresh start here.
Happy new year all. See you around Tuesday.

And it would be lovely to have links to people's favoured diet/meal/exercise plans. (@Frith!!!) I'm always in need of inspiration. And while I know that not everything suits everyone sometimes switching between different schemes not only keeps things fresh but also makes the body work better - well it seems to work for me at times.
All that said my ongoing aim is to eat less carbs, more veg (focusing on fibre) and aim for a majority of alcohol free days. Don't mean I won't fall for the occasionally fish and chips or pizza with an extra large glass of vino but occasional treats must be allowed.
