I think I have dropped about half a stone.

I actually want to put this back on as I think I have lost a bit of of muscle mass from my upper body since finishing my last job.

Try the 100 pushups if not already doing so.

I'm putting on weight.  No cycling, but am swimming and doing the pushups and situps progs.  And up to 700 chain punches to follow.

Upper body muscle mass has increased.  That's my excuse for 74kg.

Already as bulky as I would be doing that, I used to work for building supply place, much throwing about of heavy stuff, I am already above 72kg.

Now 94kg and still (ever so slowly) decreasing. Have cut out the "low fat" choccy bars (they were still 200 calories each) at work, fruit for lunch mainly. Ccyling has dropped off a cliff with dark evenings, and I've yet to fully embrace the turbo, but that'll come. But then on 1st June I was 105kg so still pleased overall.

I started this in April 2009 and then totally flopped out of it. Excuses are to do with health and medical issuea for me and other family members.
Tonight, 16th October 2009, I have just pushed TWO large Pizzas down my throat as a "Final curtain call" for the excesses.
I weigh the same as I did in April, 125kg, and I have the target of losing 5kg before 2010 and that has to include any festivities in December!

Indeed. I seem to be shovelling one in as I type.

This is probably why I have been stuck at x+5kg for the past 3 weeks.

To be honest, my doctor's grammat was faultless, I paraphrased his instructions.
Looks like I have a pre-diabetic condition - ie. I'm not utilising all the sugar in the bloodstream, which will eventaully lead to diabetes, unless I cut down on the pies.

If you cut them in two you can eat twice as many.

I am still dropping weight, slowly but surely.  My body fat has dropped a lot.  I am also feel a lot fitter and my base is quite strong.  I am back into my sit up and push up routine on weekday mornings too.  The downside is I feel the cold more now.  I have noticed a side effect if my sugars go too high is that my metabolism goes into overdrive and this drives up my core temperature.  So if I am being good and not eating too many sugars my metabolism just ticks along and I have to be really careful about keeping warm.
I particularly suffered on the recent FNRTTS due to being cold because my HR was dropping down towards 52% of max.  That is not enough to keep me warm when it is cold outside.

I am not losing that much weight, down to 84 kg now but I have noticed big differences in body shape, particularly around the stomach, which was my area of concern.  My love handles have nearly gone now  ;D

I gave up with the scales & regular weight watching a while ago.Too a large extent I have also ceased to be mindfull of the quantities of naughty-but-nice stuff I eat.
I was suprised to see that I have lost 2.5 kg when I weighed myself this morning compared to the last time I stood on the scales approximately 6 weeks ago.
 I think I know why this has occurred;it is work related; but it is a method that I would not recommend or wish to repeat.

We've eaten out rather more than advisable over the last couple of weeks. This hasn't helped :-[. Going to my favourite restaurant (cafe sol in Clapham) last night definitely didn't help :P. Good though ;D.

Yes.   I rather think the absence of cycling from my schedule has been a significant factor in my increased lardiness :( :-[

Dropping food intake to take into account the lack of calorie expenditure is hard work. I feel noticeably hungrier earlier if I haven't cycled and therefore haven't earned my extra bit of food at lunch.

Yes.  And my digestion suffers.  I get more reflux if I've not been riding.  And then I eat honey butties at bedtime to help stave that off, which all adds up :(
