96.5 Kg on the scales the morning after coming back.   A pair of baggy shorts fell off me & I've had to move to a different belt notch.
Not fast & rarely furious

Losing fat.

Eat less than you need and much less than you want.

Bugger the lot of them Andrew.   You're fit enough to do the cycling carrying yourself, the luggage and the bike weight all that way.   Unless your weight is making you unwell I'd just go with the flow.   We're not all built like whippets you know. 

I change shape after a cycling tour.   The waist trims but the weight rarely dips.   It didn't help that we toured in France this year.    :D

I keep promising myself to go for a concerted weight loss effort but the motivation just isn't there.   I don't smoke and drink very little these days.   I only have two vices and one of them is cake.   ;)  :thumbsup:

Cycling is just a way to move my appetite to the next Cafe or Restaurant

Incorrectly assuming that the last bit of civilisation you ride through before camping on the far side of some huge hill is a Spa Town seems to be a good way to lose weight, if you make a habit of it.
