I was 18st 8 and around 48 inches around my belly button, Im now 16st and 38 1/2 inches around my belly. If you drop 2 stone to get down to 12 1/2 youll easily be under 40 inches around your waist!! Diet is key, Ive just prepped my meals for work.

Yep seeing the dietitian was key to understanding foods. I was about 5 years ago up at 17 stone so can lose weight and that took about 8 months and I got down to 13.3 stone is the lightest Iv ever been when weighing myself, aim this time is to get it off and keep it off for longer

Over Christmas I hit a PB of 200kg on deadlift and 100kg bench, not sure what my 1 rep max is on squat but Ive been doing 3 sets of 8 at 145kg. Very happy with how well my strength is coming in.

Only drawback is having injured my wrist, doctor says Ive got de quervains syndrome which is a tendon issue. Its bloody painful!! He wants me to stop lifting but I cant 😂😂😂

Wow... big numbers! Shame about your wrist but dont make it worse for the season ahead if you can avoid it!

Thats the problem, I dont want to stop lifting but dont want my wrist to affect my batting!

I took the lightest bat Ive got to play indoors yesterday, I only lasted one ball so it didnt really matter 😂😂😂😂

So after several false starts, I'm on day 10 of being healthy, so far 2kg lost. Feel great. (Except for right now, really tired, food and bed!) How are you guys doing?

Hmmm
After buying some scales that work, turns out I wasnt quite 17stone, a bit nearer 16
Anyway, still not good
So the goals to get under 15 before the season starts.

Been a while since I posted...

Since I started late last year with a PT I am now 11 pounds down overall...

My main aim was not gain weight over the winter as that's when I am most vulnerable... I always without fail end up with a chest infection and comfort eat!!!

Still failing on the diet front but not as bad as I used to be... As weather improves I am sure I will step exercise efforts... just the way I am built... hate the cold!

Any one on diet or generally should take magnesium tabs or caps. Most of us lack in this mineral but not aware of it.

It stops the craving for sugar and junk personally tried and tested and it does work.

Thanks, will have have to give that a go. Can it be part of multi-vitamin or separate? What do you recommend?

Multivit would be fine @Yorkershire just make sure it contains the magnesium.

No benefit in having separate tablets for different things. A good multivit will cover everything. Also no benefit in getting a branded vs non branded.

I've found the Lidl A-Z Multivitamins & Minerals seems to cover pretty much all bases.

I had it on its own . I am not a fan of multi vitamins as you dont know whats working and whats not . therefore i have vitamin c , vitamin D and magnesium on their own. I occasionally through in B complex  like once or twice a year for a month.

I need to shop at Aldi more... best value superstore in my book! Remember listening to a Doctorate in Marketing who mentioned... 'Commodities' and 'brands'.

He said for most of his shopping he went to Aldi or Lidl but then popped across to Sainsbury's etc... for specific item like a chocolate brand he liked...

Does make you think... all our bats have more than likely in most cases come from JS Wright & Sons... and handles from Sarwark or nearby... but the bat makers skill and livery makes the commodity into a brand ...

Started the year at 93.7kg and down so 90.4 at weigh in this evening and lost just under an inch from my stomach with slight increase in bicep and calf sizes so basically to much weights. Going to just focus on a cardio for the next 6 weeks with very light free weights and lots of core work.

Diet is now a lot better with a 50% reduction in sugar 25% reduction in portion sizes. Certainly more work preparing meals and lunches now but will be worth it come wddding day and honeymoon pics

You save a fortune as well doing your own meal prep, I could easily spend 10-12 a day on food & bottles of water

I'm going to do this next week, I've been having a 'healthy boritto' beans, chicken, peppers, lettuce and chillies. Bits that's 6.50 a pop which is about 2 X home made meals.

Cheeky Net tonight aswell 😁
