No real plan, we go away in 3 weeks so I may keep going till then…then just try and be good on my jollies :slight_smile:

Thanks, initial easy weight has dropped off, so now the hard bit begins, treadmill will get dusted off :slight_smile:

I’m aiming at not more than 1500 a day and adding in exercise. I’ve been fine so far at 3 shakes a day, on a ‘work day’ then I’ll have 4. I’ll keep this up for a while, but do go on holiday soon so I’ll be on real food…not sure if I can pop a bag full of white powder in my case and take it abroad :slight_smile:

When I have lost a couple of stone, I’ll just go on breakfast, lunch shakes and have a sensible tea/evening meal, and make sure I have a 1000 calorie deficit…

For me it’s just math, put less in, use more and the weight will come off…with a bit of added will power…though I nearly went out yesterday for a full English :slight_smile:

Today is my 7th day of 100% Huel…and coffee.

I have the fancy Aria scales so they upload my weight straight to Fitbit…so I am not entering these figures myself.

12.6 pounds gone…probably all water, but I can feel the difference :slight_smile:

Great plan! That sounds like a good idea, and well done on resisting temptation!

Ps. Great work on the weight loss, that’s pretty inspiring.

It’s always going to depend on how much you want to do it. It’s definitely doable…but you have to get your mind on it.

I could quite easily do less than 500 steps a day…Monday-Friday every week, …I have been doing for years…hence the wait gain.

I have a fitbit…this is my savouir :slight_smile:

I wasn’t massively over eating…but like you wasn’t doing enough to burn off a normal calorie intake.

I saw a ‘cancer research sponsored 10k steps a day for a month’ advert…thought that was great idea…bought a fitbit, and then forced/found the time to do 10,000 steps a day. I lost over a stone and felt great…but I lapsed.

Now a couple of months down the line, I had actually put it back on…so decided enough was enough…fitbit went back on…randomly found out about Huel and decided to give it a go.

If I don’t get out of the house during the day, I work from home, then I will just walk from the front lounge window to the back kitchen door to get my steps in…I do this most days.

Break it down into chunks do 1000 at a time then do something else etc…

As for Huel, I decided to just go for it, after reading the forums, I thought why not. I have another 23 days to go on 100% Huel (if I can) then I’m on my jollies so regular (goodish) food it will be for 10 days !

Good luck with your progress, start a thread above and keep it updated so we can see how you are doing and encourage you, it’s not easy…but it really is doable :slight_smile:
