The BC April ‘biggest loser’ 

So its the run up to the big C, and like everyone else in the world I am trying to loose a bit of weight, I have said this before but I am in a wonderful mummy group on Facebook, I met a few of them during the summer which you can read about here, two weeks ago, one of the girls thought it would be a fantastic idea to set up a ‘Biggest Loser’ with a cash prize at the end of it.

The winner is the one who looses the most weight AND the one who looses the most inches, We are doing it for the 8 weeks until Christmas and then probably continue into the new year.

We all weigh at the start of the week and post what we are on the group and the wonderful Sam adds them all up to see who lost the most that week, and its actually going really well, I decided to take up calorie counting again and I love it so much, others are doing Slimming World.

My first weigh in I had lost 2lbs! but a girl in the group had dropped 8lbs last week, its lovely and so nonjudgmental if you have a slip up and there have been plenty of recipes shared.

I love calorie counting, I am using the My Fitness Pal app which you input the numbers and it works everything out for you, I find it a lot less restrictive than Slimming World which is handy when you fancy some chocolate.

We are currently closing in on our second weigh in and I am a little nervous this week, I have had some sweeties (Halloween) but I have done 10,000 steps every day by walking around near where we live after taking the children to school which has made me exhausted in the evenings.. I have been going to bed before 10 every night.

I will of course keep you updated on the progress, I cant wait to see how well everyone has done this week.

Have you ever tried something like this with friends?

Until next time

    Good luck with losing weight!! I don’t count calories bc I’ve learned when I do I become unhealthily obsessed but I’m happy that counting calories works for you! It’s always great having motivation being in a group! That’s what I need to get me going on losing weight.

    This is such a lovely idea. Gym buddies and diet buddies always make it better when everyone is encouraging eachother and being supportive!

    I’ve never counted calories mainly because it seems like quite a bit of work but I’m glad that works for you! I hope you reach your goal!

    It’s great to loose weight by joining a group as everyone is motivating each other and you can share tips ! All the best 🙂

    Ahh well done! It’s so great to find a group that you can do these things with. Good luck with weigh in this week!

    I’ve never tried this before because I’m really bad with calorie counting and figuring out a workout! But good luck, it seems like you’re making progress to your goals!

    Good luck with your diet! I’m quitting Slimming World & going back to counting calories/macros. I keep gaining & losing the same few lbs, it’s such a pain xx
