Trust me when I say I ask myself this over and over again. I've probably done 5 or 6 of these. I'm a mental mess when it comes to my weight and am yet to work "me" out. I know I'm strong men

You're pretty much just posting stuff people already know FB. It's a bit like saying you're sad because you're depressed. Just stop being depressed. It ain't that simples. The body? The body

And I'm done.  My happy race weight has been achieved just in time for Noosa 💃 Even though I didn't register I have been following this thread for interest. Post eye-surgery I hit 59.7 kilos.  St

It seems like you are mostly aware of the reasons your results might not be as expected but for those that are confused, keep a food diary for 3-5 days.

Myfitnesspal is good if you are into that but is a bit time consuming so i'd start by just writing it down somewhere, I used a simple table in a Word document.  You can gauge how bad it is by how embarrassing it is to read yourself, show to your partner or show to your mates/colleagues.

Often seeing a whole week lets you look for quick wins like having one less coffee or one less slice of toast that can result in a decent change over a week/month year..

Down 800g. But I feel like I had to run a marathon to do it. I swear guys can cut out beer and the weight just falls off...

Apart from the fact that I don't drink, so that's not an option, surely women can do the same with wine?

MFP is shit nowadays due to the UA takeover.  I find FatSecret good as it gives you a matrix of what you've eaten in terms of carbs/protein/fat etc.

Yeah I haven't used it for years but have used carb manager or fatsecret on occasion when wanting to monitor more closely..

my comment was more in terms of keeping a diary being an eye opening first step which might lead to you moving to an app to look at calorie balance (which i think is sh*t in these apps due to exercise estimates being rubbish) or macros etc

Weighed in today as we had been away for the long weekend and I didn't get to weigh in yesterday morning.

End result was a loss for the week. 800g. Was down closer to a kilo and a half earlier in the week. On the upside though, it's a loss which is rather unusual for me in these challenges!

Calorie wise comparing a standard drink wine is a lower. I also don't tend to drink wine, but more gin and sugar free mixers, which is even lower.

I've pretty much cut out bread, a lot of other carbs (apart from lunch), I'm even off the pill as that was not helping any. Next thing on the hit list is the anti-depressants, but given the shit we are going through at the moment (his impending redundancy), I do not want to drop the dose, it's far too risky, the imbalance in brain chemicals is real. Dropping the gin won't help either. Hearing the crap spouted by that place while they still have to be there makes me sick.

I was almost going to skip weigh in this week because I was ashamed of what the result was going to be.

2 nights out with all yo can drink packages

Long weekend with Grand Final

And only 3 runs and a spin class for the week

But here I am, accountable, up 0.3kg and ready to kick ass this week.

You ok?

yeah, I'm sure all will be sorted out in a few days. Just shit when all plans and good intentions get screwed by someone you don't know and they didnt really need to be involved in the situation.

I just ate 5 jam donuts after getting some bad news. 

Food is such a comfort for me.

Next Monday will be poor 

Hope you are ok. I am the same.

I've been a mess over the last couple of weeks worrying about what the future holds for +1s work. Ate cheese, breads, processed meats and drank on Friday night. Still had a loss, probably from me trying to run it all off on Sunday morning.

I’m in for my hip replacement Thursday so not sure what will happen from here on in. 

In hospital till Monday at best then not sure what exercise I’ll be able to undertake. Just gotta make sure lounge to fridge repeats aren’t on the rehab plan.

Lucky you're not going to Prince of Wales, I know someone who'd have you out Saturday if not Friday!

Good luck with it.

Two weeks of work, (mental) training and conferencing, and no where near time to be able to exercise, these last two weeks have sucked.

6 weeks until LCW

7 weeks until Hartley (3 days, 450km on the bike, with ~5500m of climbing)

Heaviest I have ever been.

 

Bring on the training.

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:
