Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hi lads,
    went to my ACO and was congratulated on my first step in joining the army. (Walking into the ACO) Although i have to lose a bit of weight (1 stone Cos im a fat mo' fo') it has more or less made me more determined.

    Can anyone suggest a quick effective plan to lose about 1 stone nd a half if not more for that bit extra.

    Thanks

  2. cut out the beer and kebabs, run more.
     
  3. There is no such thing as a quick and effective plan for losing weight. Eat less. Eat well. And exercise. You fat git. :)
     
  4. and ignore billy bullshitters, oh hi duffdike.
     
  5. Speak to MDN he says hes apparently Kosher...
     
  6. Lol
    Thanks.

    See it will be a bit more quick for me seeing as im 16 yes? no?

    Already set myself a running reigiem (spelling) Wich involves a 2 mile jog/run/walk:) lol 3 times a week gradually going to 4 times a week
     
  7. If possible son get on a proper diet. Ditch all your burgers etc. Eat fruit veg fish the good stuff. Do not overdo the training but a 5 mile walk daily will knock the pounds off asap. A strict diet can drop you by 2 lbs a week. But you do not want to lose strength. Set a sensible goal and timetable. Keep notes. Monitor your progress. Get a mate to train with. Buy good trainers (not fancy shit). And good luck. The people on this forum have made soldiers out of some very unpromising material :)
     
  8. what do you want to join?
     
  9. What you looking at joining pal?

    edit: whoops, just got asked - Ill have to type with more than one finger next time, lol
     
  10. To be honest at the moment im still slightly confused.
    I was thinking driver or an air dispatcher....but i was told i can do better. so im open for options. I was told paras or REME but im not certain.

    Andrew :)
     
  11. Depends what sort of GCSEs you looking at getting or have... REME is a good option, Reccy Mech ;) lol
     
  12. Go Armourer in the REME. :wink: :D
     
  13. Armourer's a good choice, if your scared of the sun. LoL.

    Note to self: We'll save the banter for some where else... :)
     
  14. Ahh right.

    So what are the roles of a
    recy mech
    and an armour mech
     
  15. A Reccy Mech, or Recovery Mechanic has the task of recovering any immobd/disabled/crashed/rolled/f**ked/shagged/knackered/cu*ted vehicle the Army operates, anywhere in the world. You get to work with some quality guys, and 'play' with some big bits of kit, gaining a full license out of it. You can get more info on the ArmyJobs.mod.uk website.
