I'm not doing anything dramatic - I'm going to try to avoid drinking in the week, and I'm tracking calories.

7 days in and no drink so far (felt crap over the weekend to be fair so didn't want a drink anyway), but hopefully by cutting out the bottle and a half of wine every night and the sandwich on the way home from work, I should chuck the weight off pretty quickly.

This is the way to do it. Weight lost quickly is easy to quickly put on again; weight lost gradually the opposite.

Thanks mate. I've been pleasantly surprised by how much food you can fit into 2000 cals per day when you're not drinking over 1000 of them!

And try to drastically limit your carbs. They are pretty useless as a food source in terms of filling you up. They just keep you hungry all day long & are a waste of calories, if you're counting them.
Higher protein & ironically, fat intake will keep you feeling fuller, for longer. :thup:

Have you looked at trying intermittent fasting, Smonnie?

Hmm, I had a salmon last night after work. I'm not normally a non drinking smoker.

I've celebrated a week off the gaspers by injecting some Krokodil into my eyeball.

Sure I've said it before, but am surprised that you're a smoker. So into your ‘keep fit’ stuff and exercise, never would have thought it TBH.

The smoking comes & goes, TBH. I'll quit for a while, then in the summer I'll feel tempted, end up having one, then by the autumn, I'm back on them. Historically, at least.

TBH, you can maintain a decent level of cardiovascular fitness whilst smoking a few a day, but it won't help you set any PBs, which is what I want to aim for this year.

Yeah I used to on and off (as is the point! :lol: ) but I tended to try to fast too much, which led to overeating on other days.

I am looking at supplements as well if anyone has any recommendations.

Was meant as a joke, should have put a winky in the post. Not suprised that you'd still be quite fit, even with smoking.

I (many years ago) used to work out several mornings before work (lots of x-trainer & swimming). I remember one stand out time, chasing my son around a park over in KL, even with the temp. & humidity being so high, I was only blowing out my arse a little and recovered amazingly well all considered.

I need to get a grip of my debt problem this year.

Just under £25k on cards with a lot of promotional 0% interests ending soon so payments are going to rocket.

Tried a debt consolidation load but no joy.

Looking in to DMP but worried about the impact of this. Any one done one of these?

All stemmed from a gambling addiction I've recently got a handle on. Can't believe I've been so ****ing stupid.

Having read similar posts on here before, there's quite a few chaps on here who offer great advice regarding debt etc, maybe start a new thread.

Doesn't hurt to ask.
