And they're back!

Thanks Simon!

I didn't do anything. I expect they're still out of date as I've been needing to do some maintenance for a while. Won't look at it tonight as am currently trying to catch up on some work.

Suspect it was a computer/server glitch beyond your control.
I've not weighed myself for months but am probably stable at an acceptable weight.

Gus' progress is amazing!

I've gained a couple of kg lately. No doubt some of it is losing the drive to lose weight throughout the week, driven by the SW weigh-in on a Friday morning. Some is down to the time I've spend visiting people over the past 6 weeks or so (sis-in-law Clare put too much bread and cake within my reach!).

I'm still avoiding cake, and not buying beer at the supermarket, and having no bread/1 slice with lunch.

I eat a great deal of fruit. So on the "normal" days, things are under control. But the "not normal" days seems to have increased in number and are currently the source of my extra bulk.

I think I detect a small decline in my mass. It is very slow going though. And this weekend we are off visiting relatives again...

108 kg today.

A few days ago, after a lot of curry and beer, I was 110kg.  Am hoping to get back to 105kg by the end of the month.

Back on track, and under my goal for 2019 again.
I had a nasty cold and an allergic reaction last week.
It meant my body bloated and kept a lot of water, and I gained
a lot of weight.
So weekly  fluctuations due to sickness and hormons can be massive  :o

I have lost the plot rather and I've gained quite a bit of weight. The past month has seen me eating too much and of the wrong things. This started when I was steering a narrowboat and needed (or felt that I needed) calories for purposes of keeping me warm. Getting back on track has proved problematic...

So I've been off the wagon for a while, since August. Various issues, including a family bereavement, meant that I just couldn't keep up with dieting these past few months. As a result my weight just kept on increasing.

This week I'm trying out a slightly different approach to past attempts. I've been refraining from eating anything after a certain time in the evening, then just drinking water for at least 12 hours. This coincides with sleep later on of course, which makes things easier. Part of the supposed benefit is that I'm not busy digesting food while trying to sleep.

If I can keep this up, then I'll start to extend the non-eating hours to 14. This may be tricky to fit around work, but we'll see how it goes.
Embrace your inner Fred.

Similarly back on track today after a complicated autumn and 2 weeks in Brazil eating too much.

5 pounds up but looking to lose a stone.

Right, have been given the green light for getting back into running after 4 and a bit months off with a buggered ankle, so the project starts once again (again).

Currently 96kg and 0.5kg/week gives me 76kg early September but I'll hopefully push somewhere closer to 0.75kg/week and get there sooner (mid June).

Combination of swimming, cycling and running should get me there. Plus cutting down on portion sizes and beer and avoiding snacking. I may even start some fasting again as that really helped last time.

Gus has halved his May 2018 weight! 89kg in 19 months.

I can only sit in awe!

WTG Gus!

I also didn't realize just how much fat actually accumulate on your head. I'm now down 1/2 a hat size and both my snow and bmx helmets now fit far more comfortable.

Thanks to fboab for setting up next year's tracker.
I'm hoping for a better year next year, with fewer medical issues keeping me off the bike.
MrsC is also in a more determined mood about losing weight which always helps.

I might not weigh myself next year - balance issues and sloth...

God luck everyone!

Bloody hell I have ballooned in the past 2 months. I lost all my self-discipline after getting off that narrowboat at the end of October and have put on at least two-thirds of the weight I lost in a very short time. I've put on about 12 kg in less than 10 weeks I reckon. Frightening.

I will have an embargo on booze, cake & bread again in the new year. To be fair, I think very little of this gain is down to cake, and not all that much to booze. It must be the extra bread.

I thought my struggles to get up the hills last time I went out my bike was due to the bug that wouldn't go away, but then I stepped on the scales.  For the first time in 55 years I have to be a little bit more serious about losing weight if I want to do the Crackpot.  Its only a matter of shrinking from 90kg to 82kg but as I've never put on enough weight to lose before will require some discipline.

Will join again.
Goals will be maintaining weight, and from summer, try to drop to
80 kg  before running Loch Ness marathon oct.4.

You AMAZE me!

Maintaining a steady weight in December, when you've halved your mass is no small feat!

Continue to amaze!

Gus, I spy one asterisk too many in both your starting and hopefully your target weight, in the 'Weight reports' thread  ;) ;D

Hope you won't need that asterisk this year!
