    Eating less isn't always the way to lose weight though, as daft as it sounds, you can actually eat more a day than normal and still lose weight, eating properly is a lot more important than the actual excercise
    Can't agree with this more, I see exercise as an added bonus but its all about calorie intake. I've had periods of cutting out rubbish but doing little or no exercise and the weight still drops off me.

    ^ Yep you can't out run a bad diet...

    For me its pretty simple, cut out the rubbish, lower my bevvy intake and add some exercise. I'm not going to start having a juice for breakfast, half a rivita for lunch and a slimfast for tea. Doesn't work, might in the short-term but for long term can't be sustainable surely? Long term life style changes, no processed foods or takeaways (or limited at least) and good wholesome homemade meals.

    Are Briton's quite unique in there diets that things such as sweets and crisps during the day and takeaways at night aren't a treat anymore but the norm? Are French teens just as likely to nip into Le Asda and walk out with 12 doughnuts as their British counterparts? Are Germans like scroll through Just-Eat 1/2/3 times a week like some adults over here?

    'This is what annoys me about the likes of Slimming World and Scottish Slimmers that allow you to eat unlimited amounts of burgers, chicken, etc.'

    Not strictly true. Yes you can eat as much meat as you want but all the red meat must have all visible fat trimmed away and mince must've less than 5% fat. Sausages and burgers the same. They call it food optimising. I have lost 2 1/2 stone at Slimming World in about 15 months. Not a vast amount but I am now at a weight I am fairly comfortable with.
    Very little alcohol consumed in this time which definitely helps.

    Just replaced old bathroom scales with new ones that measure fat %, water % and BMI and will weigh myself every Saturday morning and keep a record (Who doesn't love a spreadsheet ) Hopefully seeing the scales go down will be the motivation I need to lose a stone.

    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.

    Agree with this.

    Its all about cutting out the snacking between meals. No more and no less to be honest albeit relaxed excercise is always a good thing.

    For some folk though weight gain or loss can be crucially related to other bodily medical functions as in hormone activity and/or metabolism with a simple blood check carried out by a doctor to view vital internal body balance and checks.

    Eat healthily and cut out the snacks and within months the belt will slacken off a bit.

    Mon the Cabbage!!!

    Honest question...how do your scales measure such things? Or is it really just an estimate from you putting in your height and build based on your weight?

    I'm really hoping you don't have some sort of parasitic worm.

    If not, congratulations, you're doing better than me. I think I may have lost 2lbs but this could be due to not wearing baffies while getting on the scales anymore.

    Haha, no parasitic worm, just strict restriction of calories, 3-4 gym sessions a week and 2-3 yoga classes.

    You stand on metal strips which put a tiny electric charge and the resistance is measured.

    You can buy hand held ones too. I have a hand held one which measures body fat, body water and body muscle composition and if you put in your height, weight, sex and age it calculates your BMI and how many calories you should be eating.

    If you read up about these devices (both handheld and in the scales), the consensus is they are not very accurate.

    Yeah I suppose they are only going to be an indication rather than a precise measurement but the trend is your friend with these things none the less

    I donít think you can even trust the trend. Iíve not tried it but apparently if you use it, go away drink a glass of water, do it again a few minutes later and you will get a vastly different body fat %, some suggest as much as 10%

    6lbs off since the beginning of January, nearly 2 stone overall. Weekly running mileage is up to 35 miles on average and my resting heart rate is down to 57bpm. Marathon is 10 weeks away and ideally I want to shift another 8-10lbs by about 3 weeks out.

    It's amazing how quickly your body adapts to a new way of eating. For me the biggest change has been not drinking as much. I used to knock back 10-15 pints every weekend and all the bad food that generally goes with that. I still have a drink from time to time but even over Christmas I was pretty sensible; it's only when you cut right back that you realise how crap it can make you feel and look.

    I've had a sickness bug for 3 days and lost almost half a stone. I'd recommend it.
    Congratulations 😁 I can also recommend Dysentry (1 stone in two days)
    Or for a less brutal, more measured approach, Hepatitis E (2 stones in 3 weeks) 👍🏻

    We needed new scales anyway. I agree with the possibility of inaccurate reading but it is better than not measuring at the same time and day each week.

    Anyone on here who knows me will know I'm a skinny dingle, but I am unbelievably unfit for someone my age. At the stage I don't even agree to play 5 aside because I can't run for more than a minute without just about passing out.

    After almost 26 years decided to join a gym. Thought I'd hate it but after just a few weeks I'm certainly feeling a lot better, and after a wee 20/30 minute gym session I'm in a much better/positive mood, so as well as the physical I'm realising the mental benefits too.

    I'm struggling. Have put on just under 2 stone since summer. My problem isn't what I eat, pretty much eat the same as back then. It's a total lack of exercise. Been working 12 hour shifts, 6 days a week and spending Sundays with the wife and kids so no time for the gym.
