Take it easy if you need to! A couple of days of rest always make a big difference. :)

  • First day of the DietBet. Quick swim to start off. Aiming for a form of exercise per day.
    Not looking for anything life changing, just small repeatable things that will help in the long run 😁 4kg to go 👌

Just wondering: for those who didn't make weight last month, did you reach this rounds target?

I seem to be making the previous target each time! But since this month we only have to lose 1 % I’m planning on being caught up next month!

Lewis H.

Sounds positive! I was nowhere near this month having hit the previous 2 weigh-ins. Purely just lack of additional exercise to blame. Back to it next round!

I'm going to need every last second of this round before I weigh in Tuesday. The scale has NOT been my friend lately. Good luck everyone!

Does anyone feel as though their overall goal is too low?

So when I started this is was 94kg and I'm now 89kg, which is great. But I've got another 5kg or so to lose which I just can't see as sustainable. Anyone in the same boat?

I think even if I do, the aim would be to ditch weight as a measurement anyway and go with BF%

I have been really focusing on strength training since I have lost alot and need to tighten the muscles underneath so I don't have tons of loose skin. So my weight loss rate has significantly slowed as a result of being very methodical in my nutrition & ensuring enough protein to continue to lose body fat while building muscle. It has been a crazy balancing act & not something is going to get worked out most efficiently in a few months, so I am keeping on with the long term goal of going from 45% body fat I was in Jan 1 to the much healthier body fat goal of 20%. I don't think I will ever get back to the 16% of my youth, but at 20% I suspect I should be fairly close to my weight goal overall. I am finding though that these challenges do not really fit a longer term body recomposition goal & I am not a person who likes cardio & a 1200 calorie diet enough to lose that way for longer than a few weeks.

I think bf is a great way to see where your composition is at, but usually this does correlate with weight. I find that by eating the right food (plant based and minimal human interaction with lots of vitamins and legumes/beans etc) and including strength workouts (I mainly use body weight) that my bf goes down, muscle mass stays the same ish and my weight goes down. It’s the way I want my body to look too, retaining muscle gives me a better body and a better feeling about myself. 10% isn’t a drastic loss for most people but if you’re underweight it could be.

Fell off the wagon hard this week. Up 3lbs from last rounds weigh in. Looks like going to miss this round. I upped my workouts by alot but messed up my diet and eat too much sugar and too little calories. My body is in a bit of a shock. Time to digg into the veggies and protein.

I fell off big time last month, you’re not alone! Bring it back, I ate super clean for a week (no processed foods and plant based) and I find it’s really reset me and got me away from the junk! Good luck, you can do this.

For anyone who has plateaued recently: I know some people have signed up for a 4 week challenge to keep motivated. Had anyone found it helps?

Yeah true I see what you're saying. End of the day you still need to hit the same kind of targets, just need to actually got them:joy:

I've done a couple of Kickstarters to push myself through times when I could have become complacent, but they also caused me a lot of stress because I don't take losing these challenges well. So yes, I was pushed, but I was also stressed! Some of the member only games have easier goals, so that helped.
