  • Bravo, you must be so proud, what a difference! <3
  • omg yes! The more I run the more dry I get. So now I'm greasy and dry at the same time lol. PS. I don't really care cause I'm feeling like superwoman when I can run away from everyone. :D :p
  • OP - I've pm'd you as my response is just wayyyyyy too long! <3
  • You may have answered your own question then, if your logging isn't consistent enough then you cant truly know if you are eating at a deficit. If you log the good the bad and the ugly then at least you know where you stand. I edited my last response so you may not have seen in time (whoops) but i highly recommend that you…
  • Weight can flucuate daily for a number of reasons, could you start using the app happy scale to log your daily weight if you have the time? This app then shows you a trend, it might help with sanity levels for you? You could be getting really unlucky and just weighing in on a heavier day. With measurements those can…
  • OP you are getting some awesome advice here, which you will hopefully take forward :) Never take advice from that ‘trainer’ he/she has advised you to eat 1200 which is likely to be a little less than your BMR which is just the basic minumum that your body requires to keep you alive, nevermind keeping your bones, teeth,…
  • Not for me: I like to put food in my mouth from the moment I wake up until I go to sleep at night :smiley: If your considering IF for weight loss then remember it’s just a numbers game, cals in vs cals out is all that matters. What time of day you eat is irrelevant but if it helps you stick to your calorie goals then go…
  • How long have you been at this and if your goal to lose weight how has that been going for you so far? If you have excess weight to lose then it seems unlikely that you would be under-eating by 1000 cals per day, as if you were you wouldn't have weight to lose in the first place if you see what I'm getting at <3 Are you…
  • Sorry but I literally have no idea what you are trying to ask. Your talking about trying to find a surplus, deficit and doing a recomp all in the same sentence...? Someone may be able to come along and offer you some advice if you could clarify what you are trying to achieve. :blush:
  • If you havent lost weight in a year then you are eating more than you think, simple. Dont worry, im not judging, i too was ‘on a diet’ for a year and got nowhere...i wasnt being honest with myself. If you arent weighing your food then there is no possible way you could know that you are eating 1400 cals. You are eating…
  • Dude, I eat more than you to loose weight and im a tiny female so something is off. If your not loosing weight on ‘1500’ then your tracking is highly inaccurate. With your stats you BMR is gonna be more than 1500 which is just the minimum your body need to keep you alive, so, your eating more than you think.
  • Oh dear... I'm 30 so I suppose you think I'm ancient? :D I have a full time desk job and eat plenty of junk too. Hasn't stopped me loosing 14lbs over the last 5 months though. A desk job is no excuse. Start building in more activity to your day...walk to and from work, walk on your lunch break and then eat your food at…
  • If you are certain that you are tracking accurately then you should be loosing weight on 1500 (I would think given your stats)...when you say you are eating 1500 do you mean this is the total you are eating per day or you are eating 1500 and then eating exercise cals back on top of this? That way the only other thing I…
  • How tall are you and how much do you weigh? Regardless, with that amount of exercise you would be dropping a ton of weight too quickly imo on 1500 cals. I'm only 5ft1 and 112lbs i do less exercise than you and i lost approx 0.5-0.7lbs per week on 1850 cals... Are you certain that you are tracking your calories accurately?…
  • OP - I work an office job where I am sitting all day and also made the mistake of adding myself as ‘sedentary’ when I started out. I was blooming starving! And as a result much more likely to throw in the towel. I walk around 12k steps per day to and from work and quickly found that ‘active’ was much more suitable! I also…
  • Ah yes sorry my mistake, I misread :D If your enjoying what you eat then that’s great. Keep at it and you’ll get there!! One week is way too short to expect results. It took me 3 months to start seeing noticeable changes and lots of times the scale didn't move for a week or more.
  • As others have said, compare your progress to yourself and no one else! If you are getting faster then celebrate it! :D <3 I recently went under 23mins for the first time which for me was a huge achievement, but for most runners that I know this is just an easy jog for them, so it’s all relative!! :D I would also second…
  • Okay with those stats you should be eating much more than 1200 then...please! Also as I suspected classic mistake of doing too much too soon. Why are you eating foods that you hate ? You need to find foods you enjoy that fit within your calories to create a deficit to loose weight. It’s as simple as that. Start there. You…
  • Your body isn’t going to look different in 1 week...you’ll do better and have more sanity if you re-adjust your expectations. :D <3 You need to stick with this for the long run. Ps are you fed up cause your already feeling drained, starved and fed up of eating so few calories? 1200 is very low, are you very short and very…
  • I wasn’t even classified as overweight when I started out, just high side of normal bmi. I have really noticed in the last few months that my feet look totally different. Never did I think at any point that I had or was going to loose fat from my feet :D
  • If you only started this a few days ago it's possible it is a just an initial whoosh of water weight. Looking at your stats and the fact that you are active I would like to think you could get away with eating more calories though. Maybe consider dropping your weekly intended loss to 0.5lbs per week, especially if your…
  • What is your height? If you are down to 138 now I would really recommend changing your goal to a slower loss rate than 1.5lbs per week. Consider 0.5-1lbs per week, a less aggressive goal is a goal you are more likely to stick with. I started at 130 and now down to 112 as of his morning and had my goal set at 0.5lbs per…
  • Wow that sounds pretty terrible if your ankles are swelling up?! My advice is that you need to consider your priorities in life and put your health and wellbeing before some companies profits. I assume you are legally entitled to a lunch break, so use it! I have an office job 9-5 and my job involves just sitting all day. I…
  • I make mine at around 9pm and eat at around 7am but I’ve been known to sometimes change my mind and eat something else that day and then have the oats the day after! So short answer would be that they definatly last a few days in the fridge!
  • We’re very close to the same height. I think everyones weight that they feel happiest at is going to be different cause our body shapes can vary widly but personally I think at 160 you should aim to loose some more weight, I haven’t seen a picture of you so I am making generic assumptions here but at that height for your…
  • Nope! Looking better now in my 30s than in my 20s. Just dropped a stone so I’m back to the weight I was age 21 but I look better this time cause I have less fat and more muscle. The few bits of clothes I still have from 10 years ago fit just great. As others have said, it’s usually due to being more inactive, drop in BMR…
  • If you eat out regularly and also drinking alcohol im surprised you are managing to stick religiously to circa 1400 cals. how do you even have enough left for 3 decent meals if you’re drinking your calories :D It’s probable that you are eating more than you think. Which, I would say is no bad thing as 1400 seems very low…
  • Everyday :D Walking 1+ hour during my lunch break Running 4x per week Full body strength training x4 per week
  • 5ft1.5inches here. Does that count?!? :D Starting weight was 128 now 114lbs Waist was 27.5 inch now 25 inch Hips were 40 inch now 37 inch Under bust was 28 inch now still 28 inch Nothing up top and it’s all on the hips! Ab definition is happening but my ribs show even when standing relaxed. Hips and thighs are still…
