Hi I'm looking to join this thread after being lambasted (quite rightly) for trying to lose weight by eating 800 calories a day. Did this for two weeks and lost nothing.
I work an average of 10 hour days with two hours travel time so I really don't have much time to excercise. I'm hoping that upping my calorie intake to 1000 - 1200 will be OK. I'm 5ft 2 and female.
What sort of job do you do? I've managed to exercise at least once a week since the beginning of January, but I also think that a large part of my generally being fitter is that I walk around a lot more at work. Luckily the nature of my job is such that walking round almost makes me better at it! (Although my year 11 class said I made them dizzy one day...)
Do you travel by car or public transport? Can you get off a stop earlier and walk?
I'm a firm believer that anything you can do to make you more active in any way is a big winner.
