Want To Lose Weight For The New Year Of 2012 ???

Well, We are here to help. We ???


Gary Brennan , Me and My Fat Friend

See “We” Know a thing or 2 about the subject and we figured that for the new year, there might be some people out there searching for weight loss tips

The Pic That Started It All, Gaz @ 34 Stone

1: The most simple tip to lose weight EVER is “Eat less and move more” – Common sense I know but it’s what every single weight loss plan is based on, TRUST ME !

2: Control the AMOUNT you eat at each meal time – make sure your meals are low in fat. This is not set in stone for instance you might want to also think about calories or portion control.

3: Get weighed – Measure your body, hips, thighes, chest, arms, neck……what can be measured can be managed. Always weigh-in on the same day in the same clothes on the same scales at the same time of day.

There is no point starting on a weight loss plan unless you get weighed first. This is very important. You need to be able to monitor your progress to know how well you are doing and that any changes in your lifestyle and eating are reaping the rewards or where you are making mistakes.

4 Keep a food diary – write down what you eat and what exercise you have done. Make sure you look at Calories n vs Calories out and try to ensure that Calories out is MORE than Calories in – If it helps you write down your feelings.

5.Smarter Shopping The golden rulehere is to NEVER EVER  go food shopping hungry. You make the decision to eat biscuits and crap food’s when you buy them in the shops, not when you take them from the cupboard. Don’t buy them in the first place.

6, Make a Goal list – write down achievable goals.

If my first ever goal, at 39 stone, was to ride to Blackpool in 3 hours and 10 mins, I would have failed on my journey VERY early on, so my goals were simple ones like tie my shoes, shop in regular stores, as the express train that is the 39 stone cyclist picked up speed and rumbled on, the goals got bigger, harder and more focused, to the point where I can now average 20mph on the bike, I can do “Joel Lane” and not only do I shop at regular stores, I even tie my shoes in them while shopping in the bargain basement section and stuff FITS


Good luck with your own journeyin 2012, may it be a happy, healthy and successful one

Seems like every commercial on this time of year is a weight loss program, stop smoking program or a sale on exercise equipment — gets a little tiresome. But, never tiring to see you talk about your journey. Over the past few years, my resolutions for the new year have been to take it a little easier on myself because that’s what I’ve needed. But, this year, I think I’m going to kick it up a notch and make a goal for a healthier life and a lot less weight. More bike riding and hiking, more healthy eating choices and LOTS more activity.

Keep inspiring me! 🙂

Great post! #6 is a good point – I started losing weight without actually setting a goal of losing weight but by setting a series of running goals. I think that helped, because you can see some results more regularly than if you set 1 giant goal. #5 is smart too, I never thought about it that way, but it’s true!

Congrats on your new move for weight loss! I really hope it works out well for you. If you can find something active that you find really FUN you’ll have a great shot at losing weight. Remember that you don’t have to give up the foods you love, you can still have the things you love to eat. But just try to make smaller amounts, and eat 5-6 small meals a day. Good Luck!

About weighing yourself before and during weight loss-I beg to differ. Even if you want to lose weight, not everyone finds the scale motivating. I have met people who don’t lose, or even gain (muscle mass) and that in itself is enough to make them lose their motivation. For me, I have the opposite, I lose 10 pounds, get all excited, and then start falling into old habits again. Don’t know why, its just how my mind works.

I’ve decided to avoid the scale completely until the doctor has me hop on. Even IF I don’t lose any weight, simply becoming more active is a good thing, right? I believe that once I’m into a routine, checking the scale *might* be ok, but I will be very cautious. I’d hate to ruin my motivation. 😦
