Hit 106.1 Kgs earlier in the week before a bit of a bounce (dunno why?) but back to that weight again this morning..

Actually started at 110.1 Kgs eight days ago so very happy with 4 Kgs in the first week, the grind from here will be about a kilo a week but I'm up for it and no cheats or slacking on the exercise so far.

Yup pretty motivated Kim, I have a couple of big events mid year so I have set an initial goal of sub 90 Kgs for the next 6 months and see where l am at for second half of the year..

Normally I am pretty good at first six months..

2015 : I reached 90.5 Kgs
2016 : I reached 99.1 Kgs - my mate died early last year so it was tough timing..
2017 : No excuses to not be under 90 Kgs by July
Highs : 107 Kg (24 Sept 2007) : 113.5 Kg (12 Jan 2014) : 110 Kg (12 Jan 2017)

What a tremendous start. Very impressed.
I never got anywhere near that number during my weight loss journey.
Just goes to show that you have all the tools in the bag to make it work.

Sorry to hear about your mate.
It's not easy...the last year and a half quite a few friends and relations have passed away
(not to mention one major rock star who's music is/was the soundtrack to my life).
What we can take away from it; is that looking after our health is should be premier and losing weight (and keeping it off) is so very important.
More important than a lot of things in our life that we spend far too much energy and time on.

Let's make this a record breaking six months mate - best wishes for your success! :D

Well I guess it was to be expected.
It always happened to me...one good week was always generally followed by a so so week.
Many reasons for it but usually it was the body just catching up and taking a breather.
Guess it just goes to show you that slow and steady wins the race.

I was reading a book yesterday and they had some interesting studies in it.
They state that generally a maximum loss of 1.5kg (I imaged this was averaged out over the journey) was best.
That any more had increased health risks attached to it and also
the body really pushed back the weight loss (slows metabolism, increases appetite etc).
They also had some interesting numbers concerning ratios of fat and muscle.
Apparently, 25% of our weight lose is muscle which is why exercise is essential - so we can regain that loss.
Also showed that eating too little meant that you increased muscle loss over fat loss.

Good to see that today's number is going well...should give you a great number next weigh in. :D

Not what I expected after an earlier low during the week but it is what it is.. went out for lunch with work yesterday, good siz steak, few chips, veg, 1 beer 1 glass red wine, l thought I behaved as well as could be expected, if I can't have these luxuries it's not even worth me trying, l did compensate with no tea last night except fruit plus an exerting walk/run for my usual hour and apart from cutting one exercise short during the week through rain I have been on top of my game. I was expecting better this morning but let's see what tomorrow brings..

Having a big lunch the day before weigh in day probably didn't do you any favours.
Something like that needs a few days to settle down and give you a true indication of the state of play.
It can be disheartening but don't let it destroy you. It is just one number.

On the bright side...that first number you pulled still has you on track.
I reckon it is also part of the reason for the less than stellar result as well.
Big numbers take a while of the body to catch up with...sometimes they will spill out into the second week.
You've seen it on shows like the Biggest Loser.
Someone pulls an almighty huge number and then the next few weeks collapse!
Only to find themselves in danger of being voted out. :shock:
No danger that happening to you here though. :lol:
We've got your back and will never vote you out! :wink: :lol:

I believe your next weigh in will be a ripper!
Looking forward to next Friday. :D

I've been having similar problems as you: a gradual creeping up of weight to over the 100Kg mark. It certainly sneaks up if you're not vigilant.

One day of indulgence won't make a difference. Remember, weight-loss is a long, drawn-out process that is, pretty much a "deferred reward" in itself. Problems arise only when that one day of over-eating becomes a few days each week - the point at which the remaining days of proper diet are wasted.
Striving to improve in every way possible.
