Who the bugger pays gym fees these days?
I have a couple of kettle bells for home, an ocean to swim in, hill to walk up and this.

I notice that my work out seems to be in the form of my job. Walking around a lot. Lifting, bending, twisting. If I can do that for 40 hours a week, I should be able to lose weight easily, and gain muscle.

Yes - its far better to 'work out' constructively, than just lifting weights up and down or walking in circles, etc.
Walk the dogs.
Build a Pattio.
Get active in the work-place.
Mow that lawn.

I also keep my 'mind' active recreationally.
Rather than just hanging out in a TAB like most Blue Collars do for some mental stimulation.
I read books, do short courses, talk to people, watch docos and even attend this Forum  Cheesy

I use a gym but I also cycle. Haven't really changed the diet that much. 15 kilos off in a year.

At 18 years of age (nearly 19), my weight ballooned from 75kg as a 17-year-old the year before to 106kg. I had to undergo a radical exercise program where I ate healthy, exercised hard, and slept more. I dropped my weight down to around 80-85kg, so that I looked pretty good in photos of my sister's post-high school graduation photos. No gym membership for me.

I managed to keep my weight relatively stable for about 2 or so more years until I moved out of home and had to cook for myself. Not ideal. The problem was that I let myself get into the culture of the student residence where I was living, with the idea of drinking probably up to 2 nights per week. It was easy to gain a few kilos, and I was up to about 100kg by age 23. That was when I decided to be more conscientious with my eating and exercise. Those were the days when I could ride my bike 10km to and from the university. I got my weight down to 90kg. The weight hovered around that figure for the next 3 years. No gym membership for me

By around 2008, I got this gym membership to join for about $400 per year. My weight had gained to about 100kg+ and my muscles were no longer as strong as they were in the past. I had about 10 goes at attending the yearly membership session before my membership expired. I had neither lost any considerable weight or gained any considerable muscle. Though, the attendances I did have gave me some form of redirection of mindset. I gave up on the gym membership and let nature take its course.

Fast forward 9 years, and I have had my ups and downs with my weight and my social life. My weight got as high as 128kg in 2015, and then down to 105kg by the start of 2016. Then up again to 123kg in 2016. Now it has dropped down to 115kg by late 2017.

I figure that no matter how much you go to the gym, if you don't have the mindset to lose weight, then you are not going to lose the weight. Save the hundreds of dollars on gym fees on making your life better. Buy a bike to ride. Use your lounge room to do push ups and sit ups. Then use that bed to get plenty of sleep.

Gym membership is overrated.

Someone could have mentioned that apple cider vinegar was helpful in losing weight.

Apple cider vinegar is a current fad food. I'm not saying it's not beneficial and it's been well tested at having positive effects on blood sugar levels, but it's not a magic cure for being fat.

Energy in, energy out. Have you tried rucking yet?

Apple cider vinegar has been something that I have been taking for the past week and a bit. I bought a litre bottle a few weeks back, and have only just started drinking it diluted with either water alone or water and fruit juice. What has been very noticeable are the amount of times I need to take a bowel movement every day. I am also feeling much hungrier, even when I feel that I have eaten sufficiently.

I think I did enough "rucking" in high school going from class to class with my math and science textbooks.

In 2014 I lost 25kg over the course of 6 months and I have kept it off.

Exercise is overrated is a weight loss tool (although it does have other health benefits). The key to weight loss is to reduce the calories you eat. I use the 5:2 diet and it works great for me.

Key is to use both. Over the last couple of months, I havent lost any weight, but it looks like i have since i've been converting.

To create a calorie deficit with exercise is hard as you can shove into your mouth in 10 minutes that can take all day to burn off.

Doing the right kind of exercise can really fast track weight loss, and some of the best are resistance training and sprints as the repair process of the muscle fibers burns energy, and increasing muscle mass fires up your metabolism.

You need to adjust the energy in energy out sliders and find what works for you.

You wouldn't believe how much weight I lost by reducing the sugar in my cuppas.
Of course I could be slowly dying.
The downside is all my pants are falling down.

sugar it is......its the baddy   and we are addicted to it.. we have no idea how much we consume each and every day..... we forget what happens once it hits our bodies...and into our bloodstream thats the killer....

dont swallow the sugar free jargon.. its isnt sugar free because its replaced with something just as bad....

we are surrounded by food...go into a chemist and they are selling crap...I went to a heart specialist and on his counter a charity box selling chocs...... what the??.....

we can stop drinking alcohol   we wont die if we never drink another drop..

but we cant stop eating...its a catch 22.. Cry
