Quote from: popcorn on September 18, 2021, 11:44:42 PMWhat Worked For Me was upping the amount of exercise I do and lowering the calories I consume, over the long term. That's it. I count the calories I take in by scanning barcodes and looking up estimates online - I know this is only a rough estimate but that's fine. I count the calories I burn with my fitness tracker - I know this is only a rough estimate but that's fine.
Quote from: Cloud on September 20, 2021, 03:03:39 PMGoing to get back on this myself. Always was the plan from today, but one of the guys at work chimed in with a well timed (but inappropriate and very unwelcome) "wow you're putting a lot of pounds on, absolutely PILING them on, what's up too many pies?". Yeah cheers mate, really helps with emotionally induced weight gain to be slagged off for my appearance by a colleague I have no personal connection with.Anyway Cals in/out always worked the best for me. That and being held accountable, which is where I'm on the hunt for "weekly weigh in" type threads. Used to go to WW and it always worked for me to have "someone to please". I mean, really they're just doing their jobs but I react well to "ooh 2 off this week well done!" back-pats or "oops a little on this week but I'm sure you'll get back on track" encouragement. But that all went to shit with the pandemic, as did my emotional, mental and physical health. Time to get it back on track.

Quote from: popcorn on September 20, 2021, 03:37:40 PMI sure am. Just one hour a week of gruelling misery.On top of that I do a lot of walking and a few hours of cardio in the gym each week. The personal trainer sessions are worth it for me because they get me out of my comfort zone and get me doing exercises and using apparatus I'd otherwise never dare approach. All the other exercise I do is pretty vanilla and nowhere near as intense. I also don't think I'd have kept up with the personal training if I didn't have a fitness tracker. It's gratifying seeing the stats improve. That and weighing myself every day has made me a firm believer in the need to measure things and track your progress.I'm still a bit overweight and have a long way to go before I'm any sort of shining muscle man, but I'm in no rush.
Quote from: Magnum Valentino on September 20, 2021, 07:04:39 PMI mind you saying you did a workout that left you unable to use stairs - have you done something similar since with less severe results?Also, out of curiosity (I've been using a trainer a wee while), so you remember what that routine actually was?
Quote from: popcorn on September 20, 2021, 07:50:05 PMI I still get sore after doing these sometimes.
