I feel like I am doing ok so far, not eating perfectly but not snacking too terribly and have managed three gym sessions. Unfortunately I re-injured my ankle a month back and have a scan on Tuesday to see if surgery is required to fix it up - 3rd time in 15 months doing the same injury. As a result I'm doing weights primarily so although I'll lose fat, I may not lose so much weight.
In terms of weight loss, high intensity interval training is fantastic for those who can. Do 12x30 intense effort seconds of something that'll get your heart racing - high knees, skipping, star jumps, boxing -
