    Yeah they would have plus they would have fought for every ball and kept playing for the team until the end...unlike those imposters that we employ to showcase their footballing skills.

    Friday weekly update.. week 17.... * me :56:

    Down another 2lb breaking into the 16 stone zone! Added 6kg to my bicep curls as thats all the weights I have and my bench is maxed out. Standing straight and backs fixed again so hitting the garage gym hard the next week before outdoor sport is allowed. Certain I should be able to 360 dunk now after my gains and weightloss. Cant wait.

    16.12 now and finally look slim in my tshirts but the weathers * so still in jackets.
    Another 2-3 stone more should get me shredded for the first time since primary school, only a matter of time now.

    Week 18. Another 1lb gone. * sake at this rate I won't have abbs until Christmas :56:
    Outdoor contact sport resumes this week except the pish weather that'll stop it. However if we get some dry nights then hopefully the extra full pelt running a few nights a week will speed things up. Whatever happens though, I'm no giving up.

    On a plus side, I went out shopping at the weekend to grab some stuff iv been waiting to get, and got to put some nice clothes on iv not been able to fit in beforehand and it felt great. I was walking around like a big peacock checking myself out secretly in the shop mirrors and not seeing big * sticking out :56: * yes! :56:

    14.5 k run there in an hour and 24 minute's..

    Done 10 k on Thursday and it was hard as I'd left it for about 6 day's before that and kept on a * wee circle of the area as I was feeling it :giggle1:

    Felt good today. No pain in the back or knee's during or when i finished and could've done more. Was taking myself off usual routes and up steep hills all around the area. Some change from last Sunday morning when I was half cut still. Today up and out in the sun and then pished on for the last half..

    Keep it up troops. This thread actually gives me the motivation sometimes :50:

    Started eating a bit healthier the last week, 6 pun down. Never touched a single snack, I’ll keep that up and relax at the weekends. Realise I scunnered myself the last time I tried to ‘diet’ by being too strict.

    With badminton and fives off the last year I’ve ballooned, hopefully with both starting back up it drops off again. Stone and a half off would be ideal.

    Over 2-3 months at start of year I lost a stone. Well chuffed.
    Just trying to walk more and doing the whole calorie counting thing. Sensible eating, cleaner when I could.

    Last two months I've stagnated, but back on it this week and seeing myself get back to my lowest again, back on track.

    Happy if I can do this another 2-3 months and shift the next stone. That'll be me content.

    But I know for fitness I need to get in to something more, some running perhaps.
    But need to get my mind in that space, too easy to convince myself out of it

    Listen to this guy if you ever need motivation. I went from 20st 7lbs to 12st 10lbs in about 2 years. When I got lazy and lacked drive I blasted Goggins in my ear.

    Nice one. I'm at 176 miles walking for the last 15 days plus 45 minute resistance band upper body workouts every second day.

    Keep pushing your yourself and doing what you do.

    2 hours 45 mins for 10 and a half miles that's my bare minimum and a normal day. Longest in one go is 15 and a half, longest in a day split between 2 stints is 21 and a half. Oh and the way back is on the beach through the sand for 5 miles.

    I manage it by just having the right mindset, I mentioned David Goggins for motivation earlier, well I'm not on his level but I get his theory about the power of the mind when my legs just want to give the * up. Push through it, in an hour or two you'll be on the * couch relaxing.

    That's some effort mate, well done. Takes a lot mentally and physically to keep that up over a decent period of time. I'm prob doing half what you do in a week and even then its a struggle sometimes, don't know how u find the time for it never mind the energy haha. U must sleep like a baby haha. Never heard of that Goggins guy but I'll def give him a watch.

    Out of interest, are you doing it for weight loss, fitness etc?

    I've been doing half Ur walking a week and watching what I'm eating and lost 2.5 stone in 13 weeks.

    Love my running but always overdone it and would end up doing myself in and it always ended up fading away. Was a bit sceptical about walking for fitness and weight loss but came round to thinking doing 1.5 hrs walking a day, everyday over a prolonged period was more beneficial than a hour run every couple of days and burning myself out.

    So far so good.

    Managed 1 lb loss this week :56: ffs. Need to cut my entire treat weekends out now and do just 1 day. Although currently standing in a Tshirt looking good, so mission hot weather Tshirt enjoyment seems to be a success! I'm not stopping anytime soon either, as I said I'm going to absville for one time in my life. Instagram model incoming.

    Treat won't be much this weekend anyway. Cinema nachos, Italian and an orange Yorkie and coconut Bueno :56: (and New poppits to share)

    Well Covid has gave me the time, pure boredom over the last year turned to making myself busy. At first it was weight loss, now its just seeing how fit I can get, how far I can push it every week.

    Walking is probably the best way to get fit, sure it takes longer to put in the miles but the stress on your joints is nothing compared to running

    I'm actually thinking about doing similar. Upping it and seeing how much I can do in a week. Possible isue I can see there tho is actually craving calories way more if I really put in the miles. For weight loss I want to strike that balance. Ru able to eat what u want pretty much and keep the weight off as long as you're doing all that walking or do u still need to be careful?
