The 'Adam Ant' Diet worked for me.

1 stone officially gone. Got a great workout plan if anyone wants me to post it up)
Also, the workout plan I posted up is tailored to me, and my circumstances. It is designed to increase muscle tone and size, burn fat, increase endurance and stamina and allow me to cover a minimum of 15-20 miles per 2 hours.
After this has been achieved, we will be working on getting me to do 1km per 5 minutes / 1 mile per 7 mins 30 seconds (on a short run - 30 mins or less) and train for distance running also.
Had a weigh-in last night ... I started Slimming World last week so this is now all officially recorded. In the last week I have lost 4 1/2 lbs though being controlled with my diet. No plans to set targets still ... I'll just see where it takes me.
I am likely to kick off my 3 yr rebuild plan to get back to some semblance of normality but still have to accept there will be a lot I cannot do due to dodgy knees.
After a recommendation on here I have been logging my food intake on myfitnesspal.com and have now lost another couple of pound, am down to 13st10lb (192 pounds)
I've put on a five pounds over the summer; too much good food on my travels I'm hoping that eating properly and returning to the gym routine, now that we're back in routine at home, will sort that out!
Well I spoke to my personal trainer this morning and asked for a more complete warm up and and such like, he directed me to here... Royal Marines Home < click on exercise, then click on Warm up
Also good to use for warming down. I have also been given circuit training to do on the days I do the running. Should prove interesting!
British Military Fitness App and training sessions.
Well today it went out window due to a very nice no house meal from Pizza hut oh well time to work it off. Can see my progress or lack off at my dashboard here. If interested how made it dashboard data is pulled from google spreadsheet which in return is pulling data from various websites etc..
some complaints on facebook that the link doesnt work...
so here it is in a zip file
I've lost around 2 stone since the end of June. I was never "fat" but had slowly crept up trouser size (36ins) and was getting close to 14stone (5ft 9). I got bored of always looking fat in photos so decided to something about it.
Overhauled my diet, cut out on the pointless snacking (Chocolate biscuits are like 100 cal alone...) and took advantage of the summer hols to get back on my bike. 700 miles later, I've just had to go out and buy some size 32 trousers :P
The big worry is keeping it up tho. I know there's no way in heck I can bike everyday like I did during the summer, simply because I'll be nackered in the evenings + dark/weather. Going to try to fit in 2 or 3 8/10 mile rides a week and see how I get on. I did try to go for a run with a friend the other day, but screw that, I'm still struggling to walk now!
I realise now just how much I used to "eat" when I really didn't need to. For example if I had a bowl of soup I'd eat it with 4 slices of bread, or if I bought some Pasta from Tesco I'd have it with a sandwich as well. Totally pointless as if you eat an amount and then wait a few minutes you usually feel full anyway.
Make a really hearty stew earlier, grand total of 250 calories per portion.
1 aubergine diced
1 courgette diced
1 onion chopped
1 leek chopped thinly
2 carrots diced
3 clove of garlic crushed
3 peppers chopped
5 mushrooms sliced
10 cherry tomatoes
Cook all components separately until soft (excluding cherry tomatoes)
Put all components into either a dutch oven, crock pot or large pan with lid. Add water to cover. Set to boil, then stir well. Turn heat down and simmer for 1 hour until reduced by half and thickened.
Meat eaters add meat of choice.
Enjoy your stew. Absolutely delicious
