Just remember weight yourself in the am before breakfast and after visit to the WC. That's when I see the biggest gains ;)

Or losses, surely?

Are there any other tips you'd like to pass on, no matter how small!? ;)

I'll wager Wow's weight will be around 97kg on Wednesday 19 January...
I'll try!  :P

Point is, you don't need to try very hard.

Festive high-carb temporary weight gain drops off PDQ as soon as 'sensible' low carb, low-energy eating resumes.

I have posted similar, in January, in many years...

First weigh in after xmas month+ of pigging out, there is now 4kgs extra of me !!

Boy Danish goodies does contain a fair amount of sugar

This year I promise only to pig out for a week only, not for a full month and a bit. But only way to guarantee your goodies arrive and there is some in stock is to order early ... dilemma ...

I mistakenly thought today was Wednesday until about midday, when I realised my mistake in recording my weight this morning. However, I will not be at home when I get up tomorrow so it can stay there, unless Thursday morning brings about a more favourable result.  :P

I'm going to be tackling weight loss with renewed vigour this year. Concentrating on LCHF, adequate sleep, combined with intermittent fasting. I think I understand how/why I put on weight, now to see if the theories (that I currently believe) on how to lose it, work.

That was my plan too, gerald, but I'm so thoroughly demoralised by my inability to walk pain-free I'll probably end up in December as one of those fat people on a mobility scooter where you wonder if they're fat because they're immobile, or immobile because they're fat.

I reached my target back in September and have now got to the right sort of food level where I maintain that weight - with of course the daily ups and downs that affect it. I seem to bounce about within about a 1kg range, so from 68.8 to 69.8. My magic line is 70kg - if I hit that one day then I need to reduce a bit more for a few days. Survived Christmas fairly well and enjoyed some unusual treats like stuffing, bread sauce and trifle but now back to the low carb and intermittent fasting.

It seems that for my psychology I need to continue tracking food on the Yazio app. The two days when I decided not to track food I definitely ate more - I think for my personality I'm going to have to continue with the food tracking, at least for a while. It's OK, it doesn't take long and I have all my foods in the app now, but it shows that my self-control isn't great when eating what I want.

I'm going to be paying attention to what I eat as soon as I've finished the 850g (boo - they used to be 1kg) bar of Dairy Milk I got for Christmas.
I only started logging in 2018, but I'm 1.5kg heavier than I've ever logged before. I suspect the only time I've been close to this weight was a few months after I was first diagnosed hyperthyroid.
Hopefully, being able to ride pain-free will help with the weight...

Hyperthyroid - too much thyroid activity or Hypothyroid- too little?

Hyperthyroid folk are often underweight.

I think Woolworth's sold even bigger bars of Cadbury's Dairy Milk in the past 2kg or 3kg BICBW…

ETA Amazon are apparently selling 10kg bars of CDM, measuring 6 x22 x 14cm.

Either the dimensions are wrong or the chocolate is unfeasibly dense...

I am surprised to find after a little indulgence my weight had jumped to 77.2 Kg as expected.  I have not finished Christmas, booze, booze and more booze. The surprise for me was that it is already back down to 74.3Kg.  As I mentioned before the average 1980s healthy weight according to BMI bands. 

A question. I have a Little Plum belly. It is within the line of my chest and my sides are concave.  Am I still fat? I know I am not heavy but that is not  the same thing. My best adult shape has always been one of the tribe.

A little plum belly would suggest visceral fat to me and that this ought to be reduced, even if your weight/BMI are OK.

You might only need to do a bit more walking and a bit less eating over the next few weeks to achieve this.

I was hyperthyroid, which meant I was 10 stone despite eating everything I could get my hands on. Then I was diagnosed and given carbimazole to sort it out, and put on 3 stone in not many months!
Currently 82.4kg, which is a feather under 13 stone. :(

Well done!

Festive gain dissipates pretty rapidly as you, Commute Too Far and many others have seen.
