Biggest Loser - Spring has Sprung!

Recommended Posts

5 days in Melbs = 500g gain. Not bad really. Could have been much, much worse. 

Now for the 2kgs of Haighs chocolates I brought back with me..........

Can’t weigh in, still in hospital... and they won’t let me out till my movement has been assessed. 
unfortunately it’s my bowel movement they need to assess and that hasn’t happened yet. :sadangel:

Get the laxatives, or foods that cause it (for me that is dairy) early. Otherwise you might end up getting the suppository! :o 

400g loss I think 🙄 wrote it up this morning. Need to lose more. No-one wants a fat bride!

Down from last week, and nearly back to initial starting weight.

Finally managed to do some exercise on the weekend, which was nice.

1.1kg down, 3.6 for the challenge so far.  We have been consistent as a family eating dinners from this book, seems to be helping

Had a GP appointment following some blood tests.

Cholesterol up, BAD Cholesterol up. Good cholesterol down.

Blood sugar up.

My GP used the phrase "sign posts to diabetes".

Follow up tests ordered.

No. You're going to have to get that stuff sorted.

What's your plan?

Sulking?

Looking up one of the other things noted and came across this beauty: "In many cases, habitual overeating causes high triglycerides"

So, I guess, cut down on the habitual over eating?

Gotta define that a bit better.

Tyno, a bloke from our workplace (a tradie) got a similar warning.

he went Lo tech and hard work. They start work at 6am so he gets out of bed at 2.30 am on work days and walks for a few hours and has gradually improved his eating  as well.

he is down 30 kgs in 30 weeks so far and recons he feels absolutely fantastic and Dr said he has dodged going on insulin. 
I know that method may not be for everyone but for him it was an easy, Lo tech option, and is working great for him.
I actually suggested work incentivise him by giving him a gift voucher to buy some new clothes that fit him as a bit of a reward as no doubt he will be a better healthier employee going forward.

Had the same issue several years ago.  Apart from additional exercise my Doc suggested that I eat half an Avocado several days a week.

With some clever, effective exercises it seemed to work ok and I not only avoided going on blood pressure meds, I also started enjoying my racing again and got some good results.  Avocado... Get into it!

Do what Keiran's doing.

It probably won't help your total cholesterol but it should fix the good/bad ratio and reduce your triglycerides and blood sugar. HFLC is gradually being recognised as the best preventative treatment for diabetes.

I had the same in early 2013. Had the prick test, which then was a fasting blood, then the glucose drink test. Not high enough for type 2, but well on the way there.

Triathlon (and lower carbs) saved me I guess, a year later I was back to normal. Took until the end of 2015 to realise I should drop the kilos.

Up to 84.8kg 

 

working 80hr weeks is killing me. I’m escorting trades, so basically doing nothing. The boredom, soo. Becomes snacking. Then I’m stuffed when I get home / haven’t seen the girls etc so can’t be stuffed training.

The cash is helping pay for our Kokoda trip so I’ll keep doing the hours until it’s paid off.

Finally got on my scales at home. Still at 92.6, I’ll take that as a win considering I haven’t moved since Thursday.

Putting my AP hat on here for a minute.

You KNOW what you have to do. You were ~85kg a few years ago and now you are 120kg. You know how you got here, and you have seen a nutritionist before so have the knowledge to get back there.

You already on high BP medication, and now you are putting more bullets in the chamber and pulling the trigger over and over, You need to unload a few of those bullets somehow..  

But you need to want to do it. If you cant find the reason to do it then it will be hard to get anywhere so that needs to be the first step.

If being in the ground isn't enough motivation for you, what about family/wife etc? Can you find some motivation in them...

Good luck

 

PS: I agree with the avocado and LCHF stuff as it has worked for me (115kg -> 88) but that is a different topic...

8 years.

The increase from ~100 to ~120 was fast though.

Nothing you said is wrong either, which makes it more frustrating for me.

Today was pretty good on a food/activity level, just have to keep it up for a while.

If you can have a 'pretty good' day, every day then youre doing a great job. Well Done You on a good start. 😊😊

Remember that food & booze isnt a reward or a comfort blanket 🙄

You wouldnt treat your car like shit by putting shit fuel in it. Take care of you!

Back on the bike last night. Woke up this morning and made lunch for the first time in 3 months. Disconnected the company credit card from Uber eats. 

Trying to get my mojo back. Struggling to wake up  in the morning and train ATM. I have had one day off work in the last month, so fatigue is starting to get to me. Worked 78hrs last week, which is becoming the norm. The over time is awesome and it's helping pay for Kokoda but the novelty is starting to wear off.

Totally cliche but take it one day at a time. Or even one meal at a time.

The important thing is that you recognize that perfection is not achievable/sustainable so either dont aim for it in the first place, or dont let a failure derail yourself.

If you eat a bad meal then put it in the rearview mirror and forget it, look toward and plan your next healthier meal rather than saying oh well i have had some cake so i might as well have pizza and beer for dinner and start again tomorrow.. tomorrow never comes

Also great advice...  and as Pieman said before, 'you know what you need to do'.

So put on some good music and just do it!

I read a fantastic book over the weekend called 'atomic habits' - it's full of great techniques for building on good habits and breaking bad ones which make a lot of sense.

If anyone else is having trouble in this regard you might want to check it out, given that food habits are such a big part of weight management.  Highly recommended

I'm not looking forward to Monday. It's been a very long stressful week at work, and I took comfort in chocolate. It ain't going to be pretty.

81.8kg. More of the same. This week I had a 3 day conference so I really really watched what I ate and drank. The weight loss had taken a longer then I thought, but I think early on I was snacking a little too much between meals.

Well that was a surprise. 88.9, so the slightest loss for the week, but still a loss.

I suppose only 2 meals yesterday, saying no to the 2 blocks of chocolate in the fridge, and working hard in the yard from 6am till 5:30pm with only 1 break long enough to make bacon & eggs for lunch is what helped in the end. :)

what had you done 2 days before the Friday? I remember a big thing from the TBL tv show was often after someone gave into temptation their next weigh in wasn't bad but the trainers said it doesnt matter how hard you train the next one will be a weight gain.

The body is complex and i swear my weight usually looks okay the day after a massive blowout but 2 days later I am always higher..

Not sure about that, but Saturday (2 days before this weigh-in) Katz was sitting at home waiting for news from Stickman. Maybe some nervous eating?
