Let me at that tasty salad


Unfortunately the only 'tasty' salads for me are the ones I've dolped two tons of salad cream on. It takes away that nasty lettuce flavour.

Ok, it was a pasta salad, so a bit tastier. Still lacking in flavour, only saved by the sun dried tomatoes.

Just came across this and thought get it back up the board and also confess to being a lardy.

Weight: 97.3kg
Height: 6' 1"
Age 38

Now 2 stone heavier than when I raced worlds in 2005, god does it show. Having enjoyed eating and drinking and eating and some more drinking for the past months, I now need some urgent action (Or I will have to buy a new wardrobe) to get back into shape and the weight off.

Why is it that you can read all the great advice and say yep that will work, but really struggle to get things going (I blame chocolate, it just taste so good).

Anyway just commuted to work today so that should start things going, although I am bloody starving.

Target is to get to under 90kg by end of march and 85Kg by the summer, then maintain slow progress to get down to 83kg for 2009 and qualifications for the world again. I also agree that BMI is a waste of space for athletes, despite the fact that I am fat, even when I was 83kg I was still close to being overweight despite looking thin and underweight according to friends and family.

Anyway hears to the skinny days again (I hope)

Tom

Ooo, I'd like to join in.

I'm 84.5kg and 5'9", I kept on saying my weight was muscle until I put on my new tri suit yesterday Embarassed.

I feel so hungry all the time, I've got no idea what to do about it other than keep eating.

5'11" and 75Kg

I eat at least 5 times a day. The key is portion control and good snacks. I'm never hungery so I don't bust my diet.

What makes a good snack? Fruit just doesn't cut it, I get through loads of it but I still want to eat.

Maybe I just need to train more?

Hard boiled egg, Baked potato with mustard or salsa, a small bowl of oat meal, handul of almonds, single serving can of tuna/albacore/salmon/chicken with hot sauce, single serving size of chicken soup. If you have access to a micro wave oven you can eat well and save money by using your imagination.

I walk the aisles at the grossary store and try to put easy things together that I can nuke then eat at my desk.

On occassions when I meeting causes me to miss lunch, I grab something fast at my desk and get back to work. For me avoiding hunger is key to not binging.

Heaviest I've been in many a year - 121 Kg. My parents were over for Christmas for 7 weeks, and my mother and I are bad together for snacking. I now have some serious work to do.

121Kg
5-10
46yo.

Aiming for Beaver (no no no, the Beaver Triathlon, stupid!) and Vitruvian this year, as well as moving to Glasgow. I'm currently living there on my own 3 days a week in a flat with nothing in the fridge and eating salads at night. Now I'm home I have to do something about the left overs from Christmas. Now where did I put that big box of Thornton's Brazil nut toffee????

Any takers for a TT Fat Club or Clydesdale Anonymous?

Found this thread while looking for inspiration.

Weighed myself this morning and am heavier than I've been for 2 years, despite all the exercise.

I've put on 6kg since May, which also happens to be when I quit smoking.

I'm going to update this thread at least weekly, feel free to join in!

Weight 74.6Kg
Height 170cm

1 pound a week seems reasonable. Don't pressure yourself in December though, I personally think weight gain is inevitable with all the temptation around.

I went from 91kg to 82.5kg from Jan 1st to July 1st this year and still wasn't in great shape. Ballooned a bit since IMUK and not being able to run (pulled achilles then tore other calf) but will probably start next year around 84kg then hopefully get down to 78kg for IMUK again.
I'm 184cm
