Feebs Frequents Fat Fighters

tonight is my first meeting, apparently they do not share your weight with everyone in the hall but we shall see.

just water and dry cream crackers for me for the next three months

5:2 would just make me obsess about food constantly

the one where you fast for a bit by having an extra long lie in sounded good tho

be hungry for five days and then starving for two? Not for me


Just going to watch what I eat and exercise more but be accountable for it weekly

Fair enough, but it makes weight fall off every time I do it.

I have informed Mummy Caulfield I am going, she is very pleased for me and hopes


"I have finally found something that will help me lose this weight as it has been a while now"

Phoebe most certainly isn't a fatty. Surely no need to go to fat fighters 

what the fuck is this, you don't have extra weight

in fact

I don't think there are any roffettes who are even maringally outside the "phowar! she's a healthy girl!" bracket

Will your norks get smaller if you lose weight? 

That would be a red line for me. 

Norks will get a bit smaller which will be a positive as I am regularly rocking the four boob look at the moment.

doing this will give men one less reason to not want to snog me

Would it assist your programme if one or more roffers were to inspect a number of tastefully shot ‘before’ pictures in order to be able to comment in a meaningful way on subsequent rounds of similarly tasteful photographs charting your progress?

It would be the least that one could do to help a fellow board user.

Struts I've just had the before photos for my new fitness regime and can send you those if you like.  Hoping that my norks will also get smaller and firmer.

I resent the suggestion that I may be involved in a photo that is not entirely tasteful.

And which was absolutely justified in the overall artistic context of the shoot.


are we talking about Sail's front norks or his back norks?

I accept that either will have been tastefully done

with a helpful dollop of vaseline coating the camera lens

All weighed in, nobody took a photo of me 


plan is to lose 12lbs in 12 weeks

I did my learning in the 90s so don't know what a lb is

I have a vague idea what kgs are and stones are on the scales

For god’s sake try to put it in some sort of context he would understand.

Sumo, a pound weighs about the same as 9 deep fried mars bars.

you are right Strutts;


Sumo, imagine the weight of me in your sack reduced by  10%

*insert joke here about sacks being considerably lighter by the time feebs is done*

10% (or 9 mars - assume west coast fry style) seems like a lot

can you not just shave your head to get the same effect? 

Weigh in is tonight, am very nervous


shaving my head to register a drop in lbs seem very sensible right now

I have lost 3.5lbs and didn’t need to shave my head.


one of the members is discussing her constipation issues

Best way to lose weight is to sleep enough.  Sleep deprivation makes you hungry.  

After that, a 40 minute walk every day and 2.5 minutes of breathes exercise (star jumps for me).  

Obvs cut out the sweets, biscuits, cakes, butter and cream.  

There is no need to diet and it doesn't actually help as the weight comes back as soon as you stop.  

True weight loss takes years, but is permanent and painless while you do it.  

I’m just in a world of pain from the PT sessions.

point of order on the maths above, it's gone a bit Dawnhandbags. One pound is not 2.2kg; one kg is 2.2lbs

How was your 3.5lbs in a week achieved? that's pretty astonishing.

It's pretty normal to have a big loss the first week.  There's a scientific explanation around glycogen stores or something.

It was also that I wasn't eating crap all day everyday, I was being thoughtful about what I ate. So I didn't end each evening with a bag of mini eggs

I was running again

I started eating fruit


The main problem I am having is I am trying to cut down on the amount of coke and sweets I have. This is making me so tired, I have mostly got past the headaches now

Try iron tablets (ferrous fumerate) for energy levels.

I'm down 3.5lb too.  Started on Boxing Day - I was ill, so it gave me a head start.  Only another 16.5lb to go.  All I have done so far is not drink alcohol and exercise more.  Imagine what would actually happen if I stopped shoving crap food in my gob?!

Only lost 1.5lb this week :(


not too too happy with that but 5lb in two weeks isn’t too bad

That's a decent loss ratio Phoebs- healthy and permanent rather than all these "I lost twevelty pounds in three days" tablets bollocks where all their doing is dehydrating themselves a bit.

Well done mate, nothing at all to be ashamed of.

I’ve lost a couple of pounds but fallen off the wagon tonight with beer and take away...

Some of the conversions in this thread don't look right, think its:

1lb = 16oz = 0.45kg

Getting off the tube/train one or two stops early and walking is a good idea, not so good when its freezing cold though




I didn’t lose anything this week crying

so still only 5lbs lost since the beginning of January 

Have only skim-read this but well done so far and keep going, Phoebe - running and fruit instead of Coke and sweets pretty much always going to be beneficial irrespective of what the scales say.

1/2 lb loss this week not sure the six pints and Nando’s at the weekend really helped


5.5lbs overall so far, edging closer to my 1/2 stone

19lbs since Boxing Day. I’ve been unwell in the head ☹️

*eats second half of bounty bar while nodding encouragingly*

I’m also down about 5 pounds in four weeks.  I’ve been training so hard so think I’ve moved lard from my middle to muscle elsewhere so the reduction in girth is more than I would get simply losing five pounds.

Tamora my dear I’m sorry to hear that the bastard black dog is in town. Are you managing to eat anything? Presumably the doc has you on some pills? I guess they’ll make you hungry in the end. Take care of yourself xxxx

 "...the reduction in girth is more than I would get simply losing five pounds."

Reduction in girth is too high a price to pay for weight loss. 

oh dear Tam, I hope you are getting the help and support you need


*throws sandwich and hugs*

Another lb down this week


only 0.5lb away from my half stone loss sticker

Keep going, Feebs.  I've started running seriously again.  Managed to get down to 7 minute  miles over a 9 mile circuit on Tuesday.  Have also lost a bit of the pudding around the middle.  Feeling fitter and stronger.  Also ravenously hungry, so having to watch what I snack on.

I'm also heading for my half stone badge but not quite as close to it having a full pound to go.  Psyching myself up for running tomorrow and then an extra gym session on Sunday.

I'm starting again tomorrow so I'm eating everything. Had to put health kick on hold because my heart was playing up but it seems to be behaving itself now.
