Some pole dancers just take my breath away. Seriously, I just stare at them in awe. The guy that was on America's Got Talent had some of the best moves I've seen.


So I have a new exercise routine and its working. I've worked 28 hours in the past four days and lost 5lbs. I've also managed to tone up my legs amazingly. Shame my feet still hurt. :( However, if the weight loss carries on, its an awesome incentive to just push on. And I get paid. Yay. :D

Good stuff!

I'm hoping being on my feet & wandering about at work will help me too. I really need to do some tics, I haven't done an for ages.

Been doing a lot of cardio this last month, and I feel a lot fitter, can go faster and longer on the bike :D

Need to add a bit more strength training.

I've decided I want rid of my fat....or as much as possible anyway. Trouble is, I have no idea how. I know doing tics alone isn't going to cut it. Is it as basic as increasing my cardio?

I've just googled "best way to lose fat" and one of the first websites states to fast of juice for 10 days. Somehow I don't think that's the best way :?

I think the juice thing will get rid of body mass, but you'd probably be burning muscle as well.

Cardio is the best way I think, but strength training will also keep calories burning after you've worked out, and is generally good for you. I think cardio has worked well for me with weight loss, gah I was just looking in the mirror hating my belly though, I've lost fat everywhere, but the belly is still too big, damn thing.

Yeah, I think I might start back up on the "Shaun T" cardio. It kills me, but my gut has got to go. I look fine stood up :lol:

"Juice fasts" are one of the more stupid fucking ideas floating around the Internet propagated by people who don't know the first fucking thing about human biochemistry or nutrition and if I ever catch any of you participating in such rubbish I will take it upon myself to firmly educate you by swearing at you incessantly until you stop being such a fucking moron with your diet.

There is nothing good about putting your body into starvation, yeah? Yeah. It's common fucking sense. Lose weight the proper way through disciplined gradual lifestyle changes instead of putting yourself through the physical and emotional hell of crash dieting. You're all far too old to be playing around with behaviours that are observably damaging to your health. You should know better. Grow the fuck up.

Oh wow can you tell that this is a sore point with me

One of these days I swear I am going to go do a postgrad in nutrition just so I can argue about this shit with cocksuckers on the Internet all goddamn day

I know what you mean Sarah! I may have a look on youtube, if it's there, see how evil it looks!

Damn right Madii, I can't see why anyone would try that, it must be miserable, not to mention what it does to your body. There's no quick fix. People always think there is when they ask about my recent weight loss. 'Tell me your secrets!' ermmm, strict calorie controlled diet and working out a lot, no junk etc. 'Oh' :lol:

I have no intention to do such a thing Madi, my dear. I know it is stupid.

I'm just shit with "diets" I eat everything in moderation. I don't like fried foods, most chocolates/sweets. I know I need to get some cardio in (or more than I'm currently doing)

I'm mostly happy with my size, I just get the odd "ugh" moment with my belly flab.

Know how you feel there, Sarah.
I've lost approximately half a stone now, not a lot but I've lost inches off both my hips and waist. I'm really happy!

Had to skip out on Zumba today. I had a go but within the first 2 or 3 minutes my legs were like jelly and I felt like I was going to throw up. My teacher said I looked like death warmed up and told me to go home. So now there I am and snuggled up in a blanket.

Hope I can beat this nasty coldy type thing and get back to it.

And the thought of crash dieting just makes me feel a bit ill. I'd much rather eat healthily and lose weight gradually than try out some stupid fad that will in no way benefit me.

I am *finally* starting to see results with my new exercise regime - I haven't lost any lbs on the scales yet, but my clothes are getting looser, people are starting to notice that I've lost some weight, and I've had to go down a bra size. Whoopee! I also managed to bench press 30kg at the weekend, but nearly managed 40kg. If I hadn't already been tired when I tried 40kg, I reckon I would've had it! This is now my mission for this Sunday's training session.

That's amazing, I can barely lift an amp of my OH's which is 25 kilos :lol: scary when I think of how much weight I've lost, and was carrying it around all that time and can't even lift it!

I have had a bit of a lull after my holiday where I replaced regular workouts with regular scoffing of duty-free chocolate.

I did a half-arsed attempt at some aerobics last week, as I'm nursing a nasty injury courtesy of my 6'3", 15 stone nephew deciding I looked strong enough for him to rugby tackle. I took his entire running weight on my ankle, which has rendered the entire of my foot a veritable kalidescope of colour. But it has stopped hurting and the swelling has gone down so I ventured as far as step aerobics this morning, followed by an abs workout and some lower-body torture. It wasn't as horrendous as I expected it to be after three lazy weeks, but tomorrow might be a different story.

I was going to share with you some snapshots as, for the first time in my life, I wasn't thoroughly repulsed at pictures of me in a bikini. But photoshop isn't liking me today so you have been spared for now.
What, that? It's a spade.

I have been incredibly lazy this week, partially due to reasons beyond my control. I went to the gym later than usual on Monday evening after being stuck on a phone call at work until 6pm (I finish at 5pm), only to find that the area that I usually do my kettlebell/weight toning in was being used for a martial arts class and I couldn't do my usual workout. So I did some cardio on the cross trainer instead, but only managed 20mins as my ipod decided to die. Which then meant that I couldn't go jogging Tuesday or Wednesday morning as I do intervals and time myself with playlists on my ipod, and had nothing to time myself to. Eventually got a new MP3 player, and went to the gym Thursday evening to do my usual cardio, which was fine, but was incredibly lazy on Friday and didn't go, but then saw on FB that the gym is now running a class on Friday evenings as well, so there is now no day in the week that I can use the toning room to do my workout after work, as there is a class on after work every evening. So now I have to completely change my routine, and I'm a bit annoyed about it!

Sharing a few holiday pics with you girls, as they are relevant to this thread.

Callanetics with my daughter:

And final one, which is cross posted.

I'm pretty chuffed to have got to a point where I'd wear a bikini, let alone like a bikini shot enough to post it. The work was worth it.

Looking good Gracey, your hard work paid off! The Callanetics pic is cute.

I hope I can wear a bikini one day. It's kind of a goal of mine. I haven't worn one since I was about 12. From how my stomach is now, I'm pretty sure I'll be left with loose skin, I'll see the extent of it when I've lost more fat. I've read it can take the body/skin a year to recover from a large weight loss, so I hope I can use exercise to help with the skin.

I haven't done much on the form of exercise recently, unless you cross running about like a buffoon at work exercise, I've cross posted this image from the WW thread.
Image

November last year & today. I know my progress isn't as AMAZING as some others but I'm pretty pleased with my results, I finally lost that last inch from my bottom which I have had for er, 3 years I think. Topshops size 14 fits me, so that pleases me immensely! :lol:

I'm gonna keep at it, doing tics whenever I can. I honesty can't see me getting any smaller, but meh. For those interested, I measure: 36, 33, 42. A friend commented on my "hourglass" figure, I laughed. "dah-ling, I'm a pear, not an hourglass" :P

I had to compare it to an old one just to check :lol: My mother in law said I'd lost weight last time she saw me & she's never, ever commented before so who knows.

I'm hoping to get some time later to do some tics.

Eurgh, I have been feeling ill for a few days, I have exercised Monday and Tuesday, but I am feeling a bit more ill today, sore throat and my chest hurts a bit. Someone assure me it's ok to miss out my cardio today, the guilt, the guilt! :lol:

Miss the cardio amy, its not the best thing when your poorly. Mayby try some yoga or callanetics, something that wont make your head feel like it will explode!
Lovely pics gracey and sarah, i can only hope my little short-arsed frame will one day look that lean and slender :)

My physio had me jogging for 2mins on a treadmil last week. It hurt at the end like but im kind of seeing that as an indicator that im now ready to start going back to boxercise :D
I do my first session tonight so il let you know how i go.
The show must go on. Inside my heart is breaking, my makeup may be flaking but my smile still stays on.
