  1. So this is an interesting one Stripes. I’ve been asked by a ton of people if I’d consider coaching them/giving advice/making videos etc of tips and help for people... I considered doing a Chanel of some description to help people, dispel myths, work on achievable goals etc etc and share my general experience... because losing 50kgs and changing your lifestyle and mindset is NOT the same as losing 10-15 or yo yo-ing or fad diets etc the list goes on... and more importantly... being consistent and accepting/making these habits a part of your life long term is something of the upmost importance rather than the weight loss itself IMO! Do that and the weight will go by itself. To a degree what puff is saying has merit, but also is the same as telling someone with depression to just snap out of it. obesity is a disease and has many contributing factors. How do we get fat? Being in a calorie surplus. How do we get in that calorie surplus? By eating more and moving less? Why did that happen?.... and there it is.... the answer is gonna be different for everyone and therefore the solution is going to be different for everyone!!! I don’t just mean physical reasons either, most are associated with a disorder or dysfunctional relationship around food to some capacity. Some are related to underlying health issues people aren’t aware they have (usually despite people’s eagerness to use this as an excuse it’s actually not, but more of a reason someone might feel more fatigued or be challenged by their illness to stay in a sub optimal nutrition status). Some are related to habits and environment. Some are related to emotional trauma or mental health issues which manifest as a food dysfunction/lack of motivation or ability to exercise. To be honest the advice I’d offer everyone would be different based on their own circumstances... but if I had to give you one hot tip/list of steps ... it would be this... 1. Go to the doctors (if you haven’t already, and get a FULL physical including all blood and levels, thyroid, etc.). Assuming that’s fine or you address any issues then move onto the next step. 2. Do not change a single thing but track what goes in your mouth... INCLUDING CALORIES WE DONT LIKE TO COUNT OR FORGET TO COUNT!!! I can elaborate on that one for hours!!! Being honest, real and thorough is of the upmost importance with this! 3. Work out your BMR and establish how much of a surplus you’re in currently (or maintenance etc) and work out why... is it times of day where you binge.. is it situational (work, weekends, events, etc) ... is it holistic (just all over making bad choices or eating too much volume) or random... and have a really good think about why that is. Why are you treating food in that capacity... may be as simple as an addiction to sugar (you see in tracking your diet is sugar heavy etc) or may be that you have a depression trigger which causes you to eat etc. ... either way figure out where your triggers are or what the catalyst might be. Try to address this (this one is complicated so I won’t elaborate). 4. Figure out an ACHIEVABLE deficit (500 cals say)... and eat exactly what you’re eating now, but less. Cut something easy out (usually volume or by substitution) to achieve that 500... then repeat this step every few weeks with portion control or moderation until you’re at 1000cals a day deficit (this is only achievable when you have a high bmr due to being overweight and this will need to be adjusted over time). DURING THIS PHASE DO NOT: - include any exercise routines you’re not already doing - cut out any foods you like or are addicted to, but moderate them/portion control them (the aim is not to shock your body into withdrawals but slowly change it along with your mental approach to food). - make any dramatic lifestyle changes, stay with what you’re doing, stay consistent. I did not include exercise into my routine until 4/6 months in and even then it was moderate and infrequent for the most part... and I didn’t include daily exercise until 2 months ago!!! Because I know it was too much of a change for me to sustain. I didn’t focus on diet and nutrition (eating more nutritious foods etc) until 6 months in... and even then, I make sure I moderate, not cut anything out because I know my body will just crave it more. Only now am I trying to really achieve 140-170g protein daily because it aligns with my body cravings due to the weight training... my body WANTS fuel and I’m listening to it... in fact I’m about to smash nandos as we speak and I had a massive beef burger and chips for lunch... however I burnt 3500 cals yesterday from footy and gym... so you learn to listen to your body... but you need to go through a healing phase with your body so it starts sending the right messages in the first place! This is all a process and what I’ve said above worked for me because it’s not instant, it’s not over night, it’s not a quick fix or diet, it’s a lifestyle change which is sustainable and enables us to learn lessons on the way about nutrition, fitness, calories, etc. Biggest piece of advice, throw any ideas of fad diets in the bin. Shakes, fasting, Keto, whatever other BS some cooked KARnt is peddlin... STOP IT! You’re better off waiting another 6 months to start than starting any of that crap coz I almost promise you’ll fail and put back on every kg you lose plus some. Stop worrying about exercise!! (Unless you enjoy it and it’s already part of your routine) our calories we burn in exercise make up for such a small percentage overall of our daily output!!! You DO NOT need to exercise to lose weight, period. Once you start to see results make more SMALL and achievable changes gradually at the same time as addressing your dysfunction (whatever that is) around food as well. Then you can start to incorporate exercise when you feel like you’re gonna enjoy it or it’s going to add value to your life rather than be something you’re forcing yourself to do. That’s my 2 cents... Happy to help if u need... Let me know if u need a source/ help with good BMR calculators or deficit goals etc etc. PS. counting calories is also a big area people screw up. Either from lack of understanding on how to do it, or forgetting to count every single thing they actually consume.
  2. Well I don’t wanna jinx anything ... but there has been talk by my coach of the SANFLW for my future potentially 😬 but I’m old and have a long way to go hahah so who knows
  3. Well... I have had to make a big mental shift from 50kgs/10months worth of calorie restrictions to actually learning to fuel my body... but I think day by day I’m getting there... This is what sitting on my but feeling sorry for myself due to my diagnosis vs weight training 6-7 times a week and football/high intensity cardio 2 times a week looks like ... Freaking out the scales are going up a tad (yes I know why but it’s still scary after focusing on numbers going down for so long). Gaining 2kgs in 2 months but losing a whole clothing size again makes me feel okay about it.... still a bit shift and something my mindset is changing into... fuelling my body instead of feeding it. But onwards and upwards. Footy is amazing also... absolutely loving it and can feel my cardio and fitness getting better every week so fast... also enjoy the game much more than I realised and happen to be half decent at it (transferable skills from basketball I think), so that helps
  4. Absolutely so proud of you J@! I know better than anyone the amount of effort and love you put into your tuning passion and this particular journey specifically. You’ve come leaps and bounds over the years and this thread is an embodiment of that... look how far you’ve come!!! The sheer pride you put in your work and the passion you have manifests in the achievement of amazing things and you’ve had such a big part of making Alex’s journey what it is. Well done to all you boys and achieving such a great result! Couldn’t be more proud of all of you... but especially you J@ ❤️ PS... Well done Mr Alex! you’re crazy but awesome and this is a huge achievement! Well-done pal!
  5. Not so much weight training but on another fitness tangent... pre season for footy kicks off tomorrow night... pretty excited to see where my fitness is at and hopefully get more fit as the weeks go on 😃
  6. Well it’s official... after weighing in this morning I can officially say 3 things... 1. I haven’t weighed this little since I was 17 years old 2. I can deadlift more than my body weight 3. When I lat pull down and release my knees from the pad I get pulled upwards like a small child holding onto a spinning clothesline LOL
  7. So glad you’re happy my J@! Can’t wait for you to chauffeur me through the twisties 🥰
  8. Naw thanks freaky ❤️❤️❤️ J@ and I love you too x
  9. Update... Did every morning this week with a break for the weekend... feeling really good and strong. Monday’s legs Tuesday’s back and biceps Wednesday’s chest and triceps Thursday’s core and glutes Friday’s cardio only weekend’s rest/run/long walk Didn’t wanna include my ugly mug but just an idea of what 50kgs lost looks like... For reference I am 5ft 3 and was a size 22 in the first pic and now a size 8-10. Got some bit and pieces this morning as I’m finding I really need more protein. Hard to get a good amount in my diet naturally as I don’t like meat much and I like quick and easy through the day... so got some slow release protein desert for night time and some for after work outs ... Also stepped up my thermogenic powder game as I was on oxyshred for the last 2 months and felt like it wasn’t doing much for me anymore... so we will see how this goes
  10. Conquered a fear this morning. Under 1kg to go until a total loss of 50kgs and I figure it’s time to get strong again. So went to a new gym this morning and started strength training again. going to the gym at my previous weight was something that both scared me and felt impossible, but at 5 this morning I got to the gym and smashed out a leg session followed but some low intensity cardio focusing on climbing... Feeling shaky but good and actually excited for tomorrow morning
  11. Thanks keif... I more meant she refuses to chase it to begin with... even the metre... and I’ve done it with her favourite toys and she just looks at me like “wtf why did u throw that” 😂 But I will endeavour to continue to try LOL
  12. I cannot refute that statement to a great degree ... the reason being the recent evidence that said “dog people” have provided on my interactions with them recently. I bought my dog for it’s life cycle, in fact, the puppyness (whilst admittedly adorable) is my least favourite part of the dog lifecycle. However, the constant gushes from morons (who always mention their dogs in the brief interaction) who feel compelled to come up and allow/encourage your puppy (unprompted) to jump all over them and lick them etc... gets freaking tiresome real quick!!! I’m trying to teach my dog the right social etiquette so she’s not “that dog” and you’re undoing it all by (without permission) forcing yourself onto my dog and making them misbehave essentially. In fact, the two times I’ve been asked “hi, may I pat your pup” I nearly fell over... as it seems, just like with pregnant bellies, morons feel they’re public property for the touching!
  13. I honestly cannot recommend a BC highly enough... I fully understand we are city dwellers, but I got her for a running buddy and immediately she was like a piece of furniture in the family. She’s the most affectionate and loving pup. So clever (our trainer said there is a list of dogs from smartest to dumbest... then there’s a whole new book for the BC). Within the first week she was training well and even rolling over, as an 11 week old that’s pretty cool. Definitely needs stimulation... not so much physical but mental... she thrives on challenges and agility... but refuses to fetch a ball (trainer thinks she’s too smart for it and therefore has no interest maybe🤷🏼‍♀️) To add to the weight of it, we have about 9 BCs between myself and my colleagues (we have work dog days where we take our pups to work)... and every single person reports the same thing, in fact several have multiples because they loved their first one so much they needed a second. On these days everyone’s dogs are running around the office causing havoc half the time, but all the BCs are just off leash sitting by their owners desk. As long as you invest time into training, and plenty of loves (fly is legit the most affectionate dog I’ve ever met, even spooned j@ to sleep and he didn’t even want a dog LOL), then they’ll be your best buddies for life... and given the big space you have for them to run, they’d love it. Just my experience.
