Get Stoned in 2015: Weight Loss

I did one of these last year through another internet forum I am a part of, basically the aim is for you to lose at least one stone, in 2015, and then to keep it off. Obviously for some people losing a stone would be next to nothing, but would hopefully enable them to maintain the discipline to keep going, whereas for others, they might just be looking to lose that final stone healthily, and in a way that means you won't put it back on the second you start starving yourself.

Basically we would look for a weight on or around Jan 1st, you can share it here, or not bother, that's up to you, but for some posting the weight here will help motivate them and mean that others can cheer you on as you progress.

Anyone who wants to join in, please feel free to post here!

Last year I took part in this, I was 14 Stone 4lbs on Jan 1st, I am now 12 Stone 11lbs (having gained a lot of lean mass)... A lot fitter, and a lot healthier than I was a year ago...

So feel free to sign up before the new year!

Here is how I propose it works,

You can either
a) Post your weight in here, we can then all track your progress
b) Post your weight to me privately, I will have everyones progress in a spreadsheet, and I will then include you on the updates
c) Post your weight to me privately, and not be included in updates, but I could generate you a random number eg Participant 22
d) Just do it yourself!

We will then look to get weekly updates to track progress!


Update:

Hmm this seems like a pretty good motivator...so long as the trolls don't come out the woodwork and start insulting people's weights.

Well done for losing that much! I want to shift my weight to 7st 6lbs within three months.. That's the plan, anyway.

I don't think they will to be honest, and if you want we can keep it confidential, I will do it on a spreadsheet and simply state your weight loss!

I want to lose roughly half a stone, which will hopefully make me able to run a bit faster, so count me in!

Last year at this time I was 18 stone 6lbs. I'm now 12 stone 4lbs. I keep plateauing coming down on the weight so kinda shows I'm controlling it in a fashion.

Stats. 12.9 stone. 6ft.

I always struggle to get below 80kg I just can't do it. It's literally the final stone I need to get off so whenever I stop exercising I just float around. I think it's a case of just doing more exercise and more consistently. When I'm at the gym or cycling I'm always doing a good exercise. I think I need a home gym.

80kg for your height is fine bro - besides.. muscles weighs more than fat so it will be harder to get below 80kg.

True I need a bit more muscle. I do think that when I go to the gym I lose weight, problem is as soon as I get to 80kg I stop, if I could do 4 days a week consistently I could definitely lose some more weight and gain muscle too.

Yeah man, I need to start going again too. I got into such good shape a few months back and then I started working overtime and with my disso and what not, I just wasn't bothered to go gym. I'm 5ft 11 and weigh like 80kg. I really wanted to build my way up to perhaps 87kg, maybe 90 (if i'm reaaaaally pushing it) but it gets so much harder past the 80kg mark.
