    I've been doing more miles this year than I used to.
    Turned 60 so decided to make an effort to maintain my fitness levels.
    Was surprised to see on Strava that I've averaged just under 100 miles a week, and I forget to turn it on sometimes.
    But my weight has dropped when I didn't need it to.
    5'8" and I am down half a stone to under 10 and a half.
    More cakes!

    I've been a veggie since my mid 20's , so there's not much fat going in.

    Booked a GP appointment , after the usual nagging about it.
    Turned up , on my bike this morning, very wet, to be told the doc was off sick !

  6. Lost 2 1/2lb this week,sorted my bike out.Fitted all new cables and a turbo trainer tyre.Have ordered some butterfly handlebars,i need to be sat more upright.Also i need another seat,the one i have isn't InkedInkedDSCN1070_LI.jpg adjustable and it points upwards at the front.Today is only the second time on the turbo trainer,still only did 3 min.That seat hurts,any pointers to a better seat for the larger person would be good be good.

    Last weight check was bad; 94Kg (14.8st) at 5' 9".

    Diet is absolutely atrocious, i appreciate that. My goal in the new year is to get myself into the best shape of my life. Anyone got any diet plans that include pizza, beer and chocolate as staples?

    I've got over a stone off in the last 6 months by skipping lunch 5 days a week, cutting out roughly half the booze and 90% of the junk food plus doing 30+ challenging miles a week on the bike. Slow but sure works best for me, first time in nearly 20 years I can get in 32" waist kecks so happy is an understatement. Need to find a bit of balance now with the diet which will probably be more difficult.

    New Years Day, 101.6kg and I’m only 5’7” so I look like a pink walking bowling ball at the moment. Last years cycling and general keeping fit was ruined by a number of health issues and related comfort eating. No excuses this year so here we go!

    Target is to look less like a walking bowling ball initially

    Lose 33 pounds in 26 weeks? I reckon you're being a bit optimistic there. That's an energy deficit of 4,500 calories a week needed to lose that amount of weight.
    I'm hoping to lose 12-14 pounds and I'm going to give myself the whole 12 months to do it, as trying to rush it would mean drinking no beer for ages - and there's no way I'd stick at that for very long!.

    ColinJ It's a puzzle ...

    It's perfectly doable and not a stupidly unhealthy rate of weight loss, but it would take some self-discipline to achieve it.

    I find it an awful lot easier to control my weight now after giving up alcohol altogether! I had a bit of a problem immediately after that when I substituted chocolate and cake for the booze. I have cut down on them too now but allow myself them as treats from time to time, and especially on any long bike ride.
