Ran 5km today. Feeling quite good. I think the new shoes combined with shin strengthening exercises might have solved my shin splints issue (they hurt a little bit, but no where near how much they were hurting back in July).

Wow, that's impressive Yogi!

Had my first weight in of the month this morning. 96kgs. Can't complain, it's a kg in a week and to be honest I didn't do as much as I could have. Really need to kick this weeks butt to ensure I get to my goal of 93 though :)

Hows everybody else? Any other weigh ins today?

Yeah still 98kg. No loss yet...

It's not really that impressive, here's my HRM output:

Shame :( Run like a steam roller mowing down anyone else on the path (but they get out of the way as they can hear me coming a mile away due to the stomping sounds :D )

Oh and 196 bpm is my max heart rate. (Though I have other runs where I've gone to 103% so it's just a no. from a formula, not actually tested or anything).

Yay Sas, amazing work!!! I will certainly join this challenge, not sure what my starting weight is yet...will have to face the scales tomorrow after so very very very bad eating the past week or so and no exercise :( BAH!!! Hoping it won't be too drastic, sure I'm back into the 80's though :(

My goal for this month is 78kg! Let's do it!!!

Hi all,

I am well on my way to meeting my August goal, but trying not to get too excited or confident because I have had two big losses in a row at the start of my journey so I have a feeling this week will not be as rewarding.

Current weight 100kg, loss of 3.8 this week. Goal for end of August 99kg. Under 40kg to lose now, YAY!!

Keep up the good work everyone,

Trudy
SW 106.4kg 25/7/11
CW 98.2kg 5/9/11
1st Goal under 100kgs-reached 15/8/11
2nd Goal 95kg

GW end August 99kg-reached
GW end September 94kg

I'm been trying to count my calories, exercising, and trying a little bit harder. I haven't weighed myself for 9 days today and it is hard for me.
Goal for 2016:
Current weight: 94 kilos
Starting weight: 102.5 kilos
Goal #1: 92 kilos

9 days is a lot Carls :P You are doing really great... keep it up!

L2D By the way you are going at the moment you are definately smashing your August goal and you are going over and above your goal... Well done dear and keep it up :)

It feels good making it to a certain goal that you set for yourself. If I make it to my August goal I am getting a tatoo as my reward 8)

Lets go Gals!
