    Feel like I'm 16 stone at the mo. Would like to get to 13-14'ish for the CycleChat meet. Let's see how we go ... :sad:

    Height - 5ft 11in / 181cm:

    2008-01-08 21:54 - 15st 6.9lb / 98.4 kg - BMI 30.4
    2008-01-25 21:13 - 15st 4.5lb / 97.3 kg - BMI 29.7
    2008-02-12 22:17 - 15st 7.6lb / 98.7 kg - BMI 30.4
    2008-03-01 18:30 - 15st 7.3lb / 98.6 kg - BMI 30.1
    2008-03-07 20:05 - 15st 6.0lb / 98.0 kg - BMI 29.9
    2008-03-31 20:43 - 15st 6.9lb / 98.4 kg - BMI 30.4
    2008-04-04 18:58 - 15st 4.5lb / 97.3 kg - BMI 29.7
    2008-05-11 15:37 - 15st 5.8lb / 97.9 kg - BMI 29.5
    2008-06-23 22:45 - 15st 8.4lb / 99.1 kg - BMI 30.2

    Hmmmm ... I'm seeing a trend here, and it's not a downward one. Let's see how the next couple of months go ... back home now, flood repair work complete, and feeling a lot more chipper. :smile:

    2008-07-09 19:03 - 15st 2.5lb / 96.4 kg - BMI 29.8
    2008-12-07 13:55 - 16st 3.0lb / 103.18 kg - BMI 31.7
    2009-05-25 13:46 - 16st 8.0lb / 105.30 kg - BMI 31.8
    2009-06-06 14:14 - 16st 4.0lb / 103.80 kg - BMI 31.7

    Unfortunately a change in personal circumstances has led to me being "off the bike" for several months. This will hopefully be changing back to normal shortly, and I'm now resolved to doing something about my ever expanding waistline. I think I'll leave my next weigh-in report until I have something more positive to post ...

    ... zoom forward to 2011 and two weeks ago I weighed 17st 4lbs.

    2011-04-16 - 16st 13lb.

    NO! Please please use kilograms: we don't have to slavishly copy the Americans in everything. I calculate my BMI (for what that's worth) and that can only be done in Kg.

    I'd suggest that you host an Excel sheet or something similar to get it organized. See the ACF example but no need to copy that slavishly, either!

    Weekly weigh-ins, on a specified day, seem to be the norm.

    Oh, and two tips:
    1. Don't set a target more than 1 Kg loss per week.
    2. If you embark on a diet, this is forever. You can't abandon your diet once you reach your target weight, you will shoot straight up again!

    And no-one believes that cycling is a cult

    You should all be encouraged by today's article on the BBC about extending your lifespan by 14 years.

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/7174665.stm

    with regard to BMI it said "....And we also found that social class and BMI - body mass index - really did not have a role to play....."

    Though excercise did!

    And how about edits to a single reply over the weeks rather than an endless stream of replies

    That's exactly my measurements. And my aim. It's the cheesecake that does it for me.

    Obviously the quote I included was not as self explanatory as I thought. Being told that if you start something, expect to do it forever suggests to me cultish type behaviour...
    I shall try to be a bit more transparent in future;)
