I’m 185cm - quite short compared to some on the weight thread! In my mid to late 20s I was racing (running) at around 71kgs - so target ring 75kgs gives me a bit of margin over that. At 79kgs I can pinch a bit more than I wish in places. This will demonstrate that I am not a muscle bound individual!!

Erm - 0.3kg up this week. Not the best start...

Never mind it’s a long term thing!

First "proper" weigh in of the year, and despite a lack of outdoor cycling (which my devices tell me burn more calories/hr than when on the turbo) and still finishing off the Christmas cake, I'm back to what was my lowest weight last year, with, according to the NHS, a BMI in the "healthy" range (just) for the first time in 10 years. Onwards and downwards!

And 0.1 down this week. Not to concerned as I’ll hopefully actually do some exercise next week, rather than just sitting in front of a screen all day every day:(

I’ve been dry too, but haven’t exercised much and have eaten ‘well’. I’m not worrying at this stage tbh - I was below 13st this morning, which feels like a key metric for me these days!

I was somewhat annoyed to receive an email from Patient Access yesterday, linking to  a page about weight loss and featuring suggestions I could get a private prescription for Orlistat if I clicked on a pharmacy's link.

It's not a surprise... we tend to replace an addiction with another one... you have probably replaced alcohol calories with other calories... biscuits, cake, chocolate, crisps or else...

Maybe.  I'm not calorie counting or logging or anything and the human brain is adept at subtle changes to maintain homeostasis, but as I was drinking about 1000kcals worth of booze a day, I think I'd notice if I were substituting with something else.

Weightloss is all about the long game.

Down 0.6 kg in the last week or so.  Logging what I eat and not eating chocolate is clearly having some effect.
