I've been trying to lose weight by cycling and it hasn't really been working. I was 90 kg on Jan 1, which is 10-15 more than I'd like to be.

So I've devised this new diet.

In the last two weeks I've lost 3 kg. And a belt-notch. I don't feel hungry. Or tired. I fully expect to be below 80 kg by the end of April.

I have resettled at 11st after a brief excursion over that at the depths of winter.  Last summer I was 10'10 for the duration.  I am Against dieting & suchlike but am hoping that a bit more audaxing & perhaps a smidgen less of the biscuit consumption will see me back down the few pounds.  Hm.

I am wearing a lot of my old jeans from 10 years ago.  This is such a nice feeling - to actually fit your clothes rather than rely upon popping the top button or the clothes stretching to accommodate you.
I am really proud of myself so far.

I'm in a similar situation except, searching through my wardrobe, the only old stuff in a smaller size I found were a couple of pairs of summer shorts, a Vic Reeves Big Night Out T-shirt and a couple of cheesecloth shirts that I last wore in the late '70s. Time to go shopping, I think.

Except that this morning I applied the measuring tape, & discovered that I am pretty much bang on what I measured in the middle of last summer when I was 10'10.  Maybe I have actually put on muscle rather than fat.  I woke Pete up (damn these working from home types who get a lie in) to tell him this & he thought that I was looking more toned of late.  So I shan't worry about the 4 pounds :)

The difference to my appearance that The Dean on Saturday made is astonishing.  I looked positively flabby on Friday, and quite a bit skinnier on Sunday.  I spent lunchtime today eating 3 (small) plates of free curry.  Bring on the Elenith.  :evil:

My grand plan to shed six lurgy kilos fast (to fit into my triathlon wetsuit) has been foiled by Cheerios.  Halfway there.  Must resist...
It takes blood and guts to be this cool but I'm still just a cliché.

Try weighing yourself before and after training.  The immediate loss must be due to water loss but it's interesting to see how much this is.   Before a 50 minute interval session on the turbo 82.6.  After the session 81.8.  Nearly a kilo and I drunk about a litre of fluids during the session.

My weight based on fixed conditions ( weds morning, after 2 cups of tea but before I get dressed ) went up this week by a Kg.  However, I am not particularly bothered by this.  As the interval stuff shows a kilo of water can go on and off in the blink of an eye

Today another milestone!!!

I am now 16 stone (and some pounds) I'm quite chuffed!   :)  Especially as I am now lighter than Wowbagger!!   ;D ;D
This isn't just a thousand to one shot. This is a professional blood sport. It can happen to you. And it can happen again.

It appears I have not got the hang of this loss lark.  :-[

The weight is increasing in nicely controlled small amounts ::-)

The time is approaching for action,perhaps I should
ride my bike
miss out the vanilla slices,doughnuts bread,Grolsch et al  :hand:

Solidly stuck on 85.5 kg's, despite losing an inch or so at the waist (but adding it on the chest).
Kendo/gym training has been minimal due to a tear in my calf-muscle, which hasn't helped.
 Yesterday we had our inaugural meet in Rollapaluza.cc and I was by far the fattest person there, which means I'll have to work hard over the summer and I will (optimistically) keep my gym-membership over the summer.
80kgs by August! and max. 82kg by Christmas.

Two 300s in 8 days has certainly helped, but I expect today's even lower reading is due to my current lurgy.

At this rate you will be lighter than me soon, so I have to hand over the "Skinny Barstard Baton" I was given by Mike last year :)

In an attempt to actually shame myself into not attacking the snack machine at work, I shall join the weight loss tracker as from Wednesday!
