    [–] Kind of freaking out the more weight I lose narfnarfnarf77 3 points ago in loseit

    I love this article by Roxane Gay, on how losing weight doesn't necessarily fix any of the problems that led you to get big. Probs with a read 😊

    Also - congrats! 🌟

    [–] Is it possible to tone muscles in thighs and legs by walking? narfnarfnarf77 6 points ago in loseit

    Congrats! ✨

    You can tone your legs by walking, but as we're so energy-efficient when ambulating you are unlikely to build lots of muscles there 😊

    [–] Body positivity: pros and cons narfnarfnarf77 2 points ago in loseit

    I once read on here that self acceptance and fat acceptance are not the same thing. It's a notion that really helped me.

    You can completely accept who you are as a person, and forgive yourself your past actions. You can love your body for what it does for you, choose not to be ashamed of it, etc.

    But you don't have to accept being fat - you can work towards the healthier life that people at healthy weights lead, without it being a form of self-punishment. You don't have to pretend that being obese is perfectly healthy, you don't have to defend it.

    People will always judge us, for whatever trait of ours is easiest, so fuck 'em ☺️ Love yo'self and work towards whatever it is you want your life to look like!

    [–] 30 Day Accountability Challenge--Day 2 narfnarfnarf77 1 points ago in loseit

    I had a really good day today! Two meals of soup meant I had calories spare for some chocolate, and I burnt a bunch exercising! 😊

    [–] Day 1? Starting your weight loss journey on Sunday, 25 February 2018? Start here! narfnarfnarf77 1 points ago in loseit

    Day 1 again for me! I did well throughout Jan, but got complacent and lost momentum in Feb. I’m committing to tracking everything, exercising more, and choosing to be honest with myself.

    This is so pretty I double-tapped it, before realising my mistake 😊

    [–] Running With Loseit 2/12/18 Winter Reflection narfnarfnarf77 6 points ago in loseit

    I ran the furthest I have ever run yesterday - TEN MILES!

    After starting too quickly, I was literally the last person in the race for a while, but then I pulled myself together, and pushed through, finishing about sixth from last. The vast majority of competitors were 2% body fat ‘proper’ runners, and I’m so happy I held my own around them!

    Am feeling much more confident about my half marathon in March now!😬😀

    [–] Makes you proud to be English narfnarfnarf77 3 points ago in pics

    You’ve got to go to a Wetherspoons - it’s a chain pub, it’s fucking cheap, and you get the same thing wherever you are in the country. No fancy messing around there. And you can get a pint with it, even at 8am

    [–] How often do you weigh yourself? narfnarfnarf77 6 points ago in loseit

    Happy Scale does this - a free app ☺️

    [–] Took my first ever fitness class last night and I realized something narfnarfnarf77 3 points ago in loseit

    Omg, I ran out of my first (and only!) Zumba class a third of the way through! Not because I was worried about being judged so much, more that I couldn’t cope with the chaos!

    [–] Lose It! App Update narfnarfnarf77 1 points ago in loseit

    Yeah, I upgraded too and would defs recommend - just make sure you then turn off the reoccurring payment setting

    This video really helped me to stop and check myself

    [–] Ratatouille ready to go for dinner tonight. Will be served over some bowtie pasta. narfnarfnarf77 2 points ago in slowcooking

    It’s such a shame though, to use something completely unnecessary, which will likely last forever in a dump somewhere, just for a bit less washing up 🙁

    [–] Let’s start here! narfnarfnarf77 2 points ago in loseit

    My stats are pretty similar to yours, but you’re a wee bit taller - snap! Good luck, I’m sure you’ll smash it 😊

    [–] Chubby chick with shin splints narfnarfnarf77 2 points ago in loseit

    Hey, I’m in the same situ, since upping my miles training for a half marathon. From what I’ve read online, the advice is to switch to low impact cardio, like cycling, rowing, the ellipticals, etc., until your shins aren’t sore anymore. Don’t take pain meds and run on them - bad idea. Apparently we can then start building up the running again, not going too fast or too far 😊 Good shoes will also help, so your ankles aren’t moving about too much.

    [–] Tantrum Tuesday - The Day to Rant! narfnarfnarf77 5 points ago in loseit

    I know I shouldn’t complain about this but... there is an unlimited supply of free, high-quality chocolate where I work!!! 🙈 I did so well last week, but both yesterday and today I’ve taken my hummus and mange tout out of my kcal tracker, and replaced it with delicious chocolate! And I went over target by 150kcal today.

    This is why I’m fat! So much delicious food, just lying about for us to casually graze on! Ahhhhh!!

    [–] [Challenge] European Accountability Challenge: January 5th narfnarfnarf77 2 points ago in loseit

    Feeling happy! Looking forward to working out my weekly loss; it’s been exaggerated by my period weight at the start of the week, but I’ll take what I can get!

    I’ve switched from MFP to LoseIt - which I much prefer! It’s got better visualisation of your progress throughout the week, and I get a pretty congratulatory picture when I’m done logging each day! Was slightly over kcals one day, so I went slightly under the next!

    [–] SV Down 10lb. The most satisfying graph I've seen. narfnarfnarf77 2 points ago in loseit

    Great job!

    I’m inclined to get myself a fancy heart rate tracker type thing - to help see how much more I could push myself when running... I do tend to take it pretty easy on myself some days!

    [–] Any advice from people with previous eating disorders? narfnarfnarf77 1 points ago in loseit

    Hey! Fellow ex-bulimic here 👋🏻

    First - do you actually need to lose weight? Is your BMI in the overweight/obese category? If not, I’d suggest this sub isn’t the best place for you right now. Soz if you mentioned this in your post - I didn’t spot it.

    Secondly - I’ve found calorie counting helpful, because it takes some of the emotions and moral judgements of eating out of the equation, but please please be careful about competing with yourself to eat less and less, as you mentioned in your post. For me, I try to not eat over 1550 or under 1450; when I drop below 1450 I get cranky and find it harder to concentrate. Work out your TDEE, and find out what you need to eat - what your safe minimum is, and don’t dip below that

    Finally - I’ve found exercise really helps with my mood, my weight-loss and my relationship with my body. Look - how amazing that my legs will run for as long as I ask them to! My arms get stronger as I challenge them! My lungs and heart are improving so much and so quickly! Bodies are freaking awesome! I would recommend that you don’t count the calories you’re burning - just focus on running faster or further or whatever 😊

    This sub is filled with lots of friendly, sensible people, so I’m sure we can help you on your journey, one way or another! x
