    Lost 4lb in week one. I just need to keep it going now.
    Well done. I hope all the tips are helpful.

    Scotland can be a beacon, within these islands and beyond, for a socially just and sustainable society. Whilst there are many priorities which will require independence, there is also much that can and must be done now by the Scottish Parliament and the Scottish Government.

    They certainly have. While I have to tailor things to what works for me, all the helpful advice is welcome.

    How long did it take to put it all on? Stick with the new regime and it will come off in a fraction of the time.

    Itís been a gradual thing mate since I started the taxis. Youíll know what I mean, itís so easy to buy food on the go, and most of the time itís not going to be the healthy option. Iíve started taking food with me thatís healthy and not eating a big meal before going to bed after a night shift.

    portion control is my weakness.
    That, and my knee ligament wen quite a few years ago and i use that as an excuse to avoid running etc. I should probably get back to the docs to get it sorted but the last two times I was in they couldn't find anything.
    Doesn't stop it buckling/giving way when i twist/put weight on it.
    Anyhoo, exercise is key and I'm conveniently using that as an excuse.

    I enjoy cooking at home, but not really adventurous - root veg, beef, chicken, tuna, cheddar. that's about it

    Syns sound like a good idea. particularly for portion sizes
    Can you do walking without your knee hurting?

    I get shin splints when I run but would be up for a few walks if you wanted a reason to get some light exercise?

    Probably best you're in charge of route selection Matty ... or it'll just turn in to a pub crawl

    Night shift causes enough problems and sitting makes it even worse. I saw myself turning into an old taxi driver and decided to make sure I didn't. A few inches off the waistline and my old suit will do for a few more funerals and maybe my own.

    How's everyone getting on? I'm down to 13 '2 which is above where I want to be and a slow rate of weight loss, but there's a downwards trend which is good.

    I'm still plugging away.
    Not weighed myself at all but I'm now doing 10k on the treadmill 3 times per week and I can feel it getting easier.
    I don't run for the full 10k.

    I'm going to weigh myself at the end of June and hoping to have lost at least a stone .

    Slow and steady wins the race...losing about 2.5 pounds a week. But, went slightly off the rails this weekend (not majorly) so expecting to have lost less this week.

    Now starting to look towards exercise to speed up the process a bit.

    This thread is quite interesting.

    I was never that fussed about my weight but I know I need to do something now.

    Back in December I was just under 14 stone. Then, due to having loads of booze filled nights out and loads of meals I weighed myself in January and found out I was 14 stone 9!

    My aim is simple, to get back under 14 stone and then once Iím there to try and lose more.

    I donít exercise enough. I love to walk but I started a job in December where itís a ten minute walk from my kids school, before this I was at the Gyle and Iíd walk to work from Tollcross sometimes.

    I also blame Krispy Kreme for my current wasteline! Back when they opened a shop at the Gyle it seemed to kick start a demand in nearby offices for cakes, donuts and sweets. Since then Iíve got a sweet tooth that Iíve never had before.

    A problem for me is I know Iím capable of losing a bit of weight so Iíll lose a few pounds then Iíll go back to some biscuits and crisps with the knowledge if I put it on Iíll lose it again. I know, stupid but it makes sense to me!

    Last week I lost four ponds but I reckon Iíve put that on over the weekend. So Iím going to try and eat fruit and walk at least 14,000 steps a day.

    Walking football sounds great. Is there any groups that meet up at t weekend or at night during the week? And does it matter if youíre absolutely ***** at football?!

    Good luck folks!

    Itís almost an unspoken thing amongst us men and women, but Iím guessing that at some point in time weíre all struggling to lose weight.
    I started my diet this week after weighing myself. I was 17st and Iím only 5ft8. Shocking stuff, but Iím sure that we can inspire each other to better things.
    Same here mate, I've got two daft staffies that keep me busy so I'm hoping to lose weight now.

    Been at it a few weeks now and couldn't help but weigh myself. 0.8 of a stone lost so far.
    Not only do I feel fitter and can breathe easier , I can also notice a small difference.
    This has just motivated me further .

    Looking to lose at least another stone and a half.

    I think the ideal weight for my height is 78kg .
    I'm currently at 90kg.

    I have started doing HIIT and it's very beneficial without a lot of time spent exercising. Plenty of routines on you tube.

    Take it easy when you start and build up to it, I seem remember this type of exercise was a contributor to Andrew Marr's stroke that he endured a few years ago.

    First time this year Iím under 14 stone. Delighted! One thing Iíve done is cut down coffee. Iím on three a day max, whereas before Iíd be having three an hour!

    I wasnít sleeping that well and put it down to that. Also think if youíre not sleeping well it may affect your weight.

    Also eating a lot f mandarins but hate the ones with pips.

    Anyway, Iím away to celebrate. What time does the chippy open at?

    I weighed myself this time last week, and I was 13st 12lbs. Heaviest I've ever been.

    This was before going down to a festival in Leeds, where I knew I'd be having a few beers and I was conscious my weight was heading in the one direction...

    This week, I've had a few meals that have been just vegetarian - my veg and fruit intake has gone up, and I don't feel I've been wanting garbage. I also cut out beer midweek entirely, and we've not had any takeaway or eaten out at any restaurants. I've also been moving a lot more - forcing myself to get out of my office at lunch, and walk slightly further to get coffee etc.

    As a result, weighing myself today, I'm 8lb lighter than this time last week!

    Iím not calorie counting (have done in the past) and I think Iím eating less and healthier compared previous diets (where Iíve not exercised a lot) and Iím going to the gym 4-6 times a week yet Iím now the heaviest Iíve ever been.

    I've had a sickness bug for 3 days and lost almost half a stone. I'd recommend it.

    I lost two and a half stone last year in about 2 months and have kept it off, was really easy, I just cut out eating nonsense and drinking fizzy juice, main part was doing my food shop first thing on a Saturday morning and buying a weeks worth of food, that way it took away my choice of ah I've nothing in so will get a takeaway, I behave myself mon-fri and don't eat anything crazy but the weekends are fair game to do what I like

    Im stuck, havent lost any weight for ages but havent gained either. May was a heavy month socially which all involved food and cocktails so im lucky not to have gained. Diarys clear for June so no excuses. Ankle injury from Jan still driving me nuts but shouldn't stop me moving.
