Weight Watcher's Thread

It's a puzzle ...
I have taken a long break from my 5:2 fasting regime and as a result my weight slowly crept back up to 88 kg (13 st 12 lbs). I would like to get it back down to a more comfortable weight of about 79 kg (12 st 6 lbs). I have been doing a lot of long rides for the past few months and that has got it back down to 86.3 kg (13 st 8 lbs) without cutting down on food at all but I'd like to speed up the rate of loss. I think I'll follow a 6:1 fasting regime while still doing the long rides, and switch back to 5:2 as the cycling tails off over next winter.

Another 2 weeks on and another 0.90kgs (2lbs) lost.
Now at 74.84kgs. (11st11lb) So 3.175kgs (half a stone) lost in 6 weeks, without really trying. Just cutting out munching of crap snacks, crisps and biccies, but still managing to have a naughty treat now and again.

Hi
In August 2014 I had to stop working due to eyesight problems and kidney failure, I was 19st 7lbs with high blood pressure & diabetes
Following 2.5 years on dialysis and a transplant nearly 3 years ago I now weigh 12st and am no longer diabetic with normal blood pressure
The downside is that I lost muscle as well as fat so now need to build up strength again hence the cycing

Congratulations, that sounds like an amazing achievement. Not sure about cycling building muscle but I assume it's in conjunction with other resistance training?

Dropped a bit more without trying, just under 79kg now. A month before I go on holiday so I am off the booze till then, should drop under my 78kg target easily.

Had to have all my pants altered, some 3" at the waist, some 2".
Oh dear, it was going so well.............I enjoyed summer too much, didn't do enough cycling, had a holiday in Turkey in July, got lazy, then decided to have another holiday first 2 weeks of September. Back up to 82kg, ok, that was my original target but.................I can't get into any of my pants.:laugh: Diet started again today so I can get out of shorts before the cold weather comes.

Not posted on here for a while as didn't quite make the weight I was hoping for pre Holiday and certainly not the weight I want to be after two weeks all inclusive!!
Did manage to complete four 100 mile rides raising £1,500 for Charlies Chance Foundation so not all bad but time to start shifting the weight as hoping to take up circuit racing next year at the grand age of 45!!!
So here we go weigh day No1:
20 Sep 19 104 Kilo

Target by Xmas 95/96 Kilo

Monthly progress:
24/07/2019: 82.1kg
24/08/2019: 80.7kg
25/09/2019: 79.2kg

I'm doing OK, progress is fairly slow with fluctuations up and down but overall heading in the right direction. I haven't ridden a bike or done any real exercise in over a year now. I'm hoping to get back to it soon and see the weight loss accelerate.

Been two weeks and apart from last Saturday night, no alcohol, and I've been seriously disciplined with my eating. Dropped from 82kg to 79.5kg, I could carry on but I am not enjoying it, there is no reason to lose it so rapidly now that I can get back into my pants........ I'll go to Friday when I should be sub 79kg then ease off a bit, new target is 77kg.
