Thumbs up The Blubber Club.

Ok here is my idea and why iv,e had it .
I went to the doc 3 weeks ago and she had a set of scales on the floor which i popped on and was shocked to to see i was 17 st 4lbs.

I tend to eat what i want without overeating but i dont expend energy at my job so over the years it has caught up with me , iv,e always been overweight but this is out of control and iv,e started to change my eating habits ever since i got back from the docs .
She also made me aware that at 55 i was putting my health at risk so iv,e decided to set myself a target of 15 st 4 lbs before i try and get it down further.

My 2nd wife ran a slimming club and without a doubt being in a group of slimmers helps keep you on target so this is my idea !!!

We could have a thread (this thread) where we can support each other and put in ideas to help each other ie what foods we have ditched and what new stuff we are eating etc .

I think the BLUBBER CLUB is a good name for the thread and keeps the fun element going .

An online club where we can post when and if we like .

I weigh myself on a wednesday as my wife and daughter have joined me to slim down , i,m down to 17 st so ive lost 4lb and i want to take it slow so i,m happy with that .

Ive cut the beer out and sugary drinks and im eating fruit and cereals and making healthy veggie soup which my family love , i still have some treats but no chocolate or sweets .

My next weigh in is wednesday so fingers crossed , so come on folks post up what your doing and the thread can roll.

Hi George.

Good man.

Whilst I have not been to the doctor I had also been creeping up and started a diet at the turn of the year.

My starting weight after Christmas was a ridiculous 17st 3lbs.

So far my results are as follows:

Date...... Weight...... Loss... Cumulative Loss
3.1.12.... 17' 3"......... -................ -
9.1.12.... 16' 13" .......-4 ...............-4
16.1.12... 16' 10" .......-3 ...............-7
23.1.12... 16' 7"......... -3 ..............-10
30.1.12....16' 4"......... -3 ..............-13

I have fluctuated with my weight for years so really need to make an effort.

I have cut out the sweets and pizzas and reduced to a smaller lunch at work. I will keep this updated as we go along on this together George.

My weigh in is a Monday morning.

Best of luck mate. The club will be ideal for support hopefully.

Derek

Thats a great start derek , i hope to lose about 4lbs a week till i get to my first target of 15 st 4lbs , i tucked in at the HAWES inn on friday but i think you need to have treats to stop giving up the diet , i,m lucky in that i love fruit and veg so it,s a plus factor for me.

15st 7lbs and doing nothing about it apart from walking our new dog. We rescued him two weeks ago and my weight was 15st 10lbs so three pounds in two weeks does me We walk about four miles a day in total whatever the weather

Hopefully it will settle to about 1lb a week so in six months I may be around 13.5st which means yet another trip to the shops for new clothes

I put on a couple of stone after our last dog died two years ago. It's taken us this long to get another so now hopefully it will come off. Walking without a reason is so boring for me.

I am under the diabetic clinic and have six monthly checkups and my last cholesterol check was 4.4 so not to bothered about getting the weight off quickly.

Just an update from me. I am doing nothing apart from walking the dog (I put weight on since we lost the last one)

12 weeks ago 15st 10lbs collected new dog

10 weeks ago 15st 7lbs

Today 15st 1lb and feeling better for it even though its only 9lbs in 12 weeks

I only get weighed by the scales in the diabetic clinic so its only every two or three months.

Yeah, but when you saw me yesterday Paul I was down a fair bit from my starting weight

(And wrapped up against the cold ).
