So first post on this thread …. Was 99 kg after Christmas and couldn’t fasten work trousers :shock:
Didn’t weigh myself at all in between.
Went on Keto diet (and still am, although not so strict) weighed by doctors earlier in the wk at 85kg.

Not found it too hard as all that protein and fat you consume means you don’t feel hungry
Belt size down 3+ notches, and work troo’s now fit :-bd

84.1kg today...

Did I start it this year? If so I've not exactly tended the thread with any regularity but I've been regularly reading it with interest.....

Keep up the good work everyone!

You did indeed and historically, your the one that started it the first time I ever came across it. So you own every year (in my eyes) :lol:

Mine's just gone wrong. Not really sure why. Beer probably. Since my last bikepacking trip I seem to have put about 4 kg on. Not happy.

I've put on 2kg after 3 months of low exercise and summer holidays so probably time to start paying attention again.

A couple of 3H rides or runs, should sort you right out Paul. Maybe 75kg is good for you!? (what's tha weight me wonders!).

Nice1 Rapid Eye. Still under 75Kg. I often wonder if I'd still be hovering at the 85kg marker if I hadn't this thread to come back to (and confirm my historical weights).

That's got to give you a little boost, even if you've had to go through it to get there. Brill :-bd

Shaf - yes, I think it's keeping me honest. Tbh, I haven't got the same commitment as I did when I first started but I'm trying to keep it going, keep trying and slowly get there. It is slightly wearing that I've gone close to my target and then lapsed due slight injury...and snacking...and beers. I don't think I can be too strict on myself now though.

Don't beat yourself up, we are only human.
I think it is all about small changes in life style and a steady long term declined : :-bd :
..but old habit creep in occasionally. :???:

The worst culprit is processed food.. ready sauces, white flour etc.... :
...That beer or cake you scoffed in your twenties, just gave you an energy boost. In later year less so and goes straight in the 'reserve tank' around our waist. :cry:

Just doing moderation, not in moderation :grin:

Yep, all very true. I didn't weigh myself this week cos I was pushed to get somewhere on time. I think I'd have put on weight though. My aim this week is to cut out bread during the week, along with trying to limit snacking. We'll see how it goes.

I try & eat sourdough or pumpernickel rye bread now. Less bloat, beer & bakers yeast seem to disagree with me...

Oddly enough it wasn't a decent week. Too much alcohol, not enough training, but I guess the stress resulted in a meaningful chunk of weight loss.
