164lbs today, that's 2lb lost so far this year.
Will keep going ...
I am not doing much cycling at the moment so any weight loss is due to reduced calorie intake only. I haven't weighed myself for a few days but I was down to 85.5 kg (13 st 6.5 lbs) then.
I will be happy enough if I can get another 3.5 kg off by some time in March. Once I start doing more riding in the Spring it should be easy to get the last few kgs off.
11st 12 or 70kg - very poor when I was 11st 6 in November!
Still struggling, just weighed in at 100kg so only a loss of 0.2kg again. Trying to find the positives, it’s still a loss. May just take me a while longer than I thought to turn into Adonis.
What are you actually doing to try to lose weight?
Wasn't sure I'd made much progress so far, so was pleasantly surprised to see another 3lb come off over the last 8 days.
A total of 5lbs now since I reduced my calorie intake.
Like @ColinJ above I'm still not back on the bike so apart from a bit of walking it's only the reduced intake that's making any difference.
70kg is 11st!
That is a good week and over 4kg since new year.
Might as well join this thread...I know I am overweight but its more the blood pressure thats concerning me so trying to lower bp which should in turn lower the weight. Currently 14:9 and 6" (and 160/95!!!). Clothes never feel comfortable and just feel....well...fat!
I am well aware of the issue, what is causing it, where I have to cut back, its just doing it, isnt it. Done it before, when I first got a bp scare and thought I can do this, and I did, weight dropped, bp dropped, but then relaxed because I did it and thought I can do it anytime now...well, anytime has been 3 years plus so need to get back on track...
So, logging in here, hopefully this will give me a bit of accountability.
Best wishes to one and all
Two weeks in, and my weight this morning is 96.1kg - that's a loss of 1.7kg in two weeks (and 5.1kg down from my peak of 101.2kg in October).
Target of 85kg by 1 July is definitely feasible.
4.2kg lost since new year.
Target is 90kg by June, very doable.
I've hit the wall a bit recently weight-wise, holding steady between 75-76Kg for the last fortnight, but the target is 74.5Kg (revised down from 78Kg at the end of the summer) so I'm on track and happy with that. My fitness is much better now, and I suspect I'm putting some muscle on my legs which is counteracting the weight loss somewhat. I did the zwift mountain event last night in a group sub-2w/kg ride which was well over an hour (which is longer than I've ever attempted on the turbo, especially 'climbing') and I must have sweated off half a Kg in fluids alone... the conservatory was wringing wet by the time I got off the bike. I skipped the joyous downhill return which makes the stats look awful but I'm determined to concentrate & improve upon my hill climbing stamina!
3 weeks and down to 95.3kg, which is 0.8kg in the past week and 2.5kg overall.
98.8 kg today. A further loss of 1.2kg, admittedly this is over 2 weeks as I was away from home with work last week and unable to weigh in. In the right direction though so all good.
I am continuing my gradual weight reduction and I am starting to notice the reduction of my waist size.
84.8 kg today - 13 st 5 lbs.
