    I eat around 2000 calories a day, still want to get some weight off and plus I'm not a big eater anyway. When I get hungry I go for fruit or low fat yogurt, it's just a case of eating something low in calories that makes you feel full. Basically I eat a 1000 to 1200kcal dinner every day, a 600 kcal meal at night and the rest made up of snacking on fruit and yogurt

    Right, so I got a bike through the cycle2work scheme. Managed to get a fairly high spec'd bike for very little outgoings - happy days.

    Thankfully for the good run of dry weather I've tried to get out most days, but my cardio is shocking to the point it puts me off rushing going back out. Doesn't help the fact that I live in a hilly area either and the fact the gearing on drop bars is confusing as *. Four paddles and not a clue what im doing :87: (Shimano GRX 400). Tell me it gets better?

    You are doing great, well done :50:

    I feel I am struggling to stay on plan but I've managed to shift 20lb (9.3kg) since I started with WW about 7 weeks ago so not too bad I guess over all but I know I could have done better if I didn't use going out for lunch/dinner/coffee as an excuse to say " * it, I'll pick it up again tomorrow"

    Not want to boast but April 23 I was tipping the scale s at 16 st 13 , been doing the Mediterranean diet for just over 8 weeks stuck to it rigidly, no booze, no sugar, an hour exercise bike every day, some weights, basically just ate fish, chicken turkey fruit and vegetables and today I’m weighing in at 14 st 8, , I have became a bit obsessed- used to slag wummin going on about diets but I’ve became one- good feeling though putting shirts and t shirts that you can comfortably get back into again

    Cheers mate tbh before a weighted myself I genuinely thought I was about 15st , was pretty shocked and I suppose flabbergasted would be the word when I realised I was nearly 2 stone heavier

    This might help somebody. Exercise is absolutely essential to my mental health personally. If I go just three or four days without exercising I’m in the pits.
