New Weight Loss Competition


Any takers?

Now @TheWelshOne is no longer with us (she is alive), I don't know if there will be enough people up for it, but I propose a 2 month comp. Standard rules apply, those being:

1: Don't be all eating disordery
2: Only required is an initial weigh in, and a final weigh in
3: Start date is the 1st of April, but will give people up to the 7th for their own weigh ins, and the corresponding final weigh in day on June.
4: % of weight based, I has spreadsheet that auto calculates. You can pm me your weight if you are uncomfy posting it, I am trustworthy, old time member, will post filthy porn and get banned if I betray trust etc
5: No water weight manipulations

Prize will be a framed picture of me (not even ****ing kidding, I will do this).

Think that about covers it. I will be doing it anyway, would love a few fellow losers to join in. As a bonus mention what methods you will be using for any readers

Yay, gogogo (tumbleweed).

Bung me an @ if you post, so I don't miss it

yay, @SofaKing , good stuff . This gonna be a toughie for me, have been trying to diet again for a while and all I end up doing is slow bulking (which could be worse).

My life is kinda in carnage atm though so something like this will be good for me to start getting some control back, weight loss is where it all began.

I have noticed post gym that I often fall asleep after eating, so my plan is going to be to intermittent fast brutally some days, go to the gym late, hope I fall asleep and stay asleep.

Also no nighttime tv shows for me, they trigger binge eating.

You won't get banned for filthy pictures. You use them as your avatar sometimes.

I'm about 210lbs right now. My target weight is 209lbs.

I could use some support to help me reach my goal. Pray for me, people.

But seriously, I'm going to start jogging when the weather finally breaks. I'd like to get down to about 190lbs, which I haven't seen since my 20s.

Nobody loves me but my dog, and I think he might be jivin', too.

See my pm. Concerns about rule number 1 given your low weight. If the weight is a mistake or you are v short, its np though. Not overly comfy with people going well into the underweight range of BMI. No offence etc.

Going to attempt to go to the gym a lot later tonight, maybe 9 pm ish, and cardio my arse off until 11:30, come back, eat some food and fall asleep. Will probably fall asleep at 12:30, wake up at about 3 or 4 am knowing my stupid brain.

Trying to lose weight would be awesome. I actually haven't weighed myself in a long time. Usually I only get weighed when I go to the doctors and I haven't been there in a while. But I need to eat healthier and not eat as much. I am trying to exercise more too. I have a Fitbit and that has helped me a lot too.

Ok, I think your target might be a little on the low side, it puts you well into the underweight category for BMI, but I am not going to judge anyone who wants to join in, or why, just wanted to clarify point 1 because of the last competition we stopped it as someone was a recovering anorexic and it was looking a bit sinister (didn't want to encourage).

But it's up to anyone if and why they want to do it, all things considered, and everyone has their own reasons etc, so will add you so my competition spreadsheet (will only reveal % loss here if that's ok). You can just pm me your weight each week if more comfy, or at the end.

It's somewhat customary to reveal weight each week, but isn't necessary, just a start and end weight is fine.

as to your pm, and *how to do it, my recommendation is always monitoring calories using something like myfitnesspal.com and making sure you have a deficit.

I will post shortly illustrating my calculations for caloric deficit so you can see how I intend to do it.

Support here if ya need it mate, but as its a competition, starts before the 8th. You can start later though and just tag a long and post weight and losses and stuff like that though if you want. Will be running this until beginning of June anyway, so its all good

My advice, number one advice, weigh regularly, its what stops things spiralling out of control rapidly. Without it, your mind can convince yourself everything is ok. This is basically how I got to 350lbs. Now when I reach 210 I semi panic , but I always keep weighing because knowing the reality of the situation is important to stop mind games, and mind games is what sabotages weight loss, in my experience.

Anyway, as per Maslow, if you don't want to join in the comp per se, feel free to join in the thread, post losses etc or just ask for tips / whatever. If you do, a weigh in by the 8th needed.

If you are worried about posting weight, then just pm me it and I will place on my spreadsheet and only reveal the % loss each week (or since you last gave a weight). I will only reveal actual weights if the start weight is posted (then I assume implicitly you are ok with it)

Actually have switched to fatsecret.co.uk from myfitnesspal.com since there was a data breach on MFP.
