4½ lbs off this week!

This means I've lost 27½lbs in 8 weeks!!!!  :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I'm going to have a bottle glass of wine to celebrate tonight.

Wish I could have lost that other ½lb to make it a round 2 stone.

Your weight loss is broadly similar to mine, Reg, although it took me a lot longer - my peak weight was at least 19½ stone. I was 16st 3.5lb this morning.

I tried on some clothes I haven't worn for years. The suit I wore to my mother's funeral just falls off me (46" waist on that) whereas I could get into the suit I got married in (1976). I could do the trousers up more easily than the jacket, but at least another half-stone needs to go before it's comfortable.

It's still got an annoying stain from a prawn cocktail that some twit spilled on me at a Christmas do more than 30 years ago.

What is going on with the weights table? I am unable to enter a weight without the layout going tits up.

Well, yes.

It seems that although the tits may be well and truly up if I preview my post, when I save it, it fixes itself. Didn't do that before: if it was going to look ok it would look ok in preview too.

Although not as dramatic as Regulator, I am doing well for me.

Started at 14.17 stone or 90 kg
Now at 13.12 stone or 83.30 kg

All this fiddling of tables and lack of a graph makes me think.

What we need is www.fatweightjournal.com

But someone already took that.  But I do think expecting people to edit those tables is asking a bit much.  I can't be arsed with something like that.

Good going, Regulator: are you going for Weight Watchers' poster boy this year?  :)

I'm going to have a bottle glass of wine to celebrate tonight.

But your glasses hold about a bottle's worth  ;)

I'm down to 82 kg now. I suspect part of this is dehydration after a cycling-filled weekend.

On the scales front I've just ordered 3 top notch sets of weighing scales for work, so I can have more faith in my weights in future. At the moment I am taking an average of two not-very-good-quality scales.

However, I am going on how I feel now more than my absolute weight.

Someone told me today that they thought I looked as if I was losing a bit of weight. Made me feel good but it did take a 10 kg drop before she noticed  ;D

Here's another thing: my rate of weight loss increased when I stopped going to the gym (it was having a refurb, and for other reasons) for a while. Now that I am going again I expect it will go up a bit. Probably just water in the muscles though.

Weigh in day for me tonight and I'm dreading it big time, thing is you get to the point where you can't cut down anymore without feeling as weak as a kitten.
