Re: Fat Fighters '24. The year for deflation!

Ok. I'm in. No idea how frequently I'll post as I've not been particularly vigilant about weighing myself of late. Here's how January has gone: 01-01-24 - +/-122kg (didn't weigh but was there just after Christmas) 17-01-24 - 118.8kg 25-01-24 - 118.6kg 26-01-24 - 118.3kg The reason for the big drop w...

Are you doing the Routes des Grandes Alpes? I'm doing that too in a week or two. Chamonix tomorrow is showing 24°C. But 3°C next Monday. I hope that is wrong. :???: Chamonix yesterday was +/-36°c - I mostly melted! I wonder if you're looking at a ski forecast site as they often use higher altitudes...

Re: Fat Fighters '23

I've not weighed myself in ages.

Not ignoring my quest for health, fitness and a sensible/sustainable weight but just been flat out busy and not felt inclined to take measurements.

I'm gently optimistic that there might be a bit of loss if/when I step on some scales but we'll see.....

geometrygeeks.bike

There's a (paid) service on the above site that allows you to search for bikes that have a defined set of geometry lengths/angles.

Never tried it but I like the idea.

Feeling good. Riding more. Walking/hiking more.

The distances I'm putting in aren't embiggening but the stats (times, HR, pace etc...) are all showing improvement.

Staying off the booze and feeling good for it.
