I’m at my most comfortable weight wise at around 10 stone so getting down to that and staying there is my long term goal. I’ve done all sorts of different ‘diets’ over the years and have found the most success out of reducing carbs. 4 years ago I was 12 stone 7 and that had been my average weight for the majority of my life so I have got much more control of my food than I used to but can see the weight slowly creeping back on as I make unwise food choices (especially on a weekend!).
I am 38 and am 5" 5. I’m looking at consuming under 1300 calories each day with a deficit of 500 calories each day. I used to exercise much more regularly but have really let that go so am heading back to the gym, mainly to attend Body Combat and Body Pump classes and do some weights.
With regards to my short term goal, I will be happy just to lose weight over the next few weeks and am not expecting anything dramatic or unrealistic. I KNOW I will eat badly at the festival… it’s hardly going to be a healthy weekend away. But if I don’t lose prior to Glasto then I’ll come back bigger. And getting myself into this lifestyle to then adopt it once again when I’m back seems like a good thing.
I am happy to take on board all advice and to be told directly where I am going wrong here or what I need to improve on.
