i love chris brown too! lol joke the violent woman beating ****
Yeah I had to disable PMs and wall posts because of some idiots sending me rubbish! Sorry :-(.
Thanks for your help
I'm just looking at my options right now. Do you know how King's biomed course compares with UCL and Imperial. I know that imperial requires physics at GCSE and they're probably not flexible about that.
Hi. I read that you're studying Biomedical Science at King's College. Could you please help me out by answering a few questions? It would be a great help.
Is Physics at GCSE an entry requirement? I have Biology, Chemistry, and Maths at A-level.
Also, is is possible to do an accredited course at Kings?
And lastly, is it possible to work in a hospital environment without an accredited course?
Yes it is completely normal for weight loss to decrease. I lost 1.5 stone in my first month, 9lb in my 2nd, 4lb in my 3rd and currently 5lb in my 4th month (only half way through the month). I realized after my 3rd month something wasn't quite right so it occurred to me that my body was getting used to my routine so this month I've been trialling different changes to see how my body reacts to them. It's small things like drinking ice water with every meal as apparently it increases your metabolism and I have a different breakfast every day of the week. I'm not sure why this system is working but it's quite amazing how you can manipulate your body until losing more weight. Maybe you should try varying what exercise you do or just do what I've done and have a month of trialling different things to see your body's reaction. Seriously though, Don't give up on this, just imagine how great you will feel once you are down to your target weight. Let me know what you decide to do.
Sorry, Had to post in two messages because it was too long but heres the second part.
As for my own weight loss, I'm halfway through my 3rd month. I know it may seem like a lot for 3 months but don't forget I weighed a huge amount when i started. It has slowed down a lot now though. One thing i forgot to mention in my last message which is extremely important is do not weigh yourself everyday, do it once a week at the same time otherwise it will stress you out when you gain a tiny amount. Weight fluctuates depending on the time of the day and how much water is in your body. Good Luck.
I think what T-O-M- just wrote is an excellent point. The only people who will see you are randomers who will never see you again. Don't get paranoid about what people think. Don't forget loads of people go jogging in the mornings/evenings. It's completely natural to sweat and be out of breath.
I also can't afford to go the gym, my local gym charges 5.70 each time you want to go. The way i got around it is bought myself my own pair of dumbells and walk/jog everywhere. I'm actually considering training for the London marathon but I've got a long way to go but i figured it will be some sort of motivation to lose weight. Also another thing thats motivating me is that I'm doing this diet with my dad. It really helps to have someone helping you along in the process.
The key to my weightloss was pretty simple, i just stuck to 3 meals a day, drank plenty of water and starting exercising more. It's really that simple.
Are you a member of a gym? For me i wouldn't have done it without joining and attending the gym.
Throw on a hoodie and the old ipod and get lost in your running, most people dont care to look, and whos gonna look? Some random person in their car that you wont see again?
People don't gain weight overnight, so you can't expect to loose it overnight either. It's a slow process but look at it as a lifestyle change, remember even when you're at your goal weight you still want to be eating healthly and exercising to maintain it.
That's actually pretty good advice. When you say not to rush, obviously nothing is going to happen overnight, but I think that's the problem with me. Say I have a smaller portion of food, or have a lot of fruit for a week, I think I get angry just cause it doesn't seem to show. But yes, I guess I do need to remember it's a gradual process.
Don't mind me asking, but how long has it taken you to drop the 2 and a half stone?
Also, with the exercising, I don't want to join gym, just because I can't afford it, but I wanted to start the jogging or something in the morning/evenings, but I get soooo self conscious. People looking at me, especially whne I'm all sweaty and out of breath, it's not the most attractive of things to see! What kind of exercising do you do?
