I'm Big Bopper (It stands for Fat Back-of-packer, who aspires to a Lil Mopster, i.e. a thin Middle-of-the-packer). aka Jeremy.

I used to be 15 and a half stone.
I'm now 13st 3lbs (84 kilos).
I'd like to be 12st 7lbs (80 kilos).

My highest recorded weight was just over 18 months ago at 108kg and I'm currently 80kg. I’m probably slightly over that as I've not weighted myself this month so that's last months figure. I'm a 6ft 1 mesomorph, age 36.

My Nan inspired all this activity as well as Michele's dad, both who've now left us making me realise I am mortal and it does matter (so a mid-life crisis you could say!).

One thing that did help was reading that it's completely natural to want to eat lardy food as years ago, back before GM invented the wheel, food wasn't readily available so our bodies developed taste based around what gave the most amount of calories to keep us going. So we wouldn't waste our time hunting stuff like celery and went after meat.

Now we've evolved and are intelligent, we can choose to ignore that basic craving and go with something we know is better. So when I think “blimey, I fancy a bucket of nuggets” I know why but go with something better.

Hungry Blimey I fancy a bucket of nuggets. Drool

can i join? I just dont want to disclose my weight. (i think its a girl thing, or maybe its that its v embarrasing to weight more than most guys who are 6ft!)
I need to lose 10kgs. I came back from backpacking in Jan and have lost around 6 kilos, but 10 more need to go (ideally 12 but lets not get carried away)

Andy PLEASE never eat chicken nuggets, after reading Not on the Label, i cant even look at them without feeling sick. I used to munch away on them thinking I was eating breast meat - hhmmm, never thought its was loads of chicken skin! Yuck (and high in fat!)

May I say.. AndyS.. if I achieve half of what you have achieved in the last 18months then I will be a very happy man... although there is not chance that my hair will grow again.. so we will never be identical!

I salute you, sir!

Don't worry pip, I keep away from all fast food places (with exception of the kebeb shop where I treat myself to a chicken kebab now and then). Not having a cooker that works keep nuggets off the menu!

I wish you all the best with your mission. Lots of long slow sessions are excellent at shifting the lardy stuff.

I'm Miss Piggy - more for the attitude than the piggy bit - aka Judie.

Highest weight - nearly 11 stone!
Weight at start of new training schedule (14th Sept) - 56kg
Goal weight 1 - 50kg by 4th December (ballet exam)
Goal weight 2 - 45kg by FLM

Current weight - 53kg

I weight in kg 'cos they are smaller numbers than working it out in pounds!

Also trying to loose body fat %. Currently, at last measurement, 32% aiming for 26% or lower, but not too much lower 'cos I don't want to affect my fertility.

I'm not weighing myself more than once a week and aiming to do it only every other week. I'll do my body fat measurements once a month.

I had a college summer job working at a chicken factory (had to debone a chicken breast every 10secs for 8hours day). The factory did Nuggets.

NEVER EVER EVER UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES EAT A CHICKEN NUGGET AGAIN!

Trust me on this!!

I actualy hate the word Diet.

I belive it should never be used and use healthy eating instead.

wieght loss is an education not a fab.

for all of the atkins plans faults this is one of there principles and i can't argue with it. you educate your self to eat that way for the rest of your life. so you should just take that theory and use it for your everyday life

i did the atkins for 3 month last year and realy did lose a lot of wieght, but got bored with the food stuffs

OK, I am back from Sicily, it was great but all I ate was pasta, pizza and ice cream. (oink) I now feel really fat. Plus my knee hurts everytime I run so I cant just run myself thin (what I usually do) until my knee is better. I dont know how heavy I am but I do know how I want too lose weight. I hate not being able to run as it adds to the piggy feeling.

I will weigh myself and depending on how bad it is decalre it or simply declare how much I want to lose.

I need to buy some scales....

First rule of Fat Club......nobody who isnt it in it reads the thread! Evil or Very Mad

Everyone is allowed here! Wink

I don't think I'm fat (13st 4lbs is okay at 6'2"), but my current lard hinders my racing. We all want to get better than we are currently. I mean, Andy's no lard-arse, but he wants to qualify for Hawaii, which will mean he has to lean down some more.

On the plus side, when I see people like Gman, it makes me realise that I can be in even better shape than I am now, in 20 year's time. That's got to be good news Cool .

Well RuthE - that it then I have to join the thread, I was just going to sit an lurk!

I used to - ohhh so long ago, weigh 11st at 5'11''. Ran 4 London Marathons all at 3:30 give or take 10 mins. and was running about 30-40 miles per week.

Dunno why, but gave it all up and started smoking! Sad
Jan 5th this year, I gave up smoking after 4 yrs.

Now am a lot heavier and have got a LOT to loose, - like 5st! Surprised
and catch up on. back on running now, and running 10k in 62 mins (last night) so not bad, Its just so frustrating knowing how easier it was, and it could be if I loose the weight.
but it is coming down by a couple of pounds a week which is promising.

I have a plan - and if I post here then I have to stick to it dont I?
7 weeks to Nike London 10k
Entered in ballot for London Marathon 2005
Entered in London Tri 2005
Need a sprint, easy tri round about march- may yet so keeping my eyes open for one at the mo.

Alright thats about it out into the open an now you lot know - well I cant let you down can I?
