Very well done Jonny, good to see you doing lots of long rows.

Managed a drop myself this week.

The end of January is in sight, which will mean back to the alcohol consumption (especially as we are off to Australia for 2 weeks on the 10th Feb). However, if I can also maintain the increased meters the spare tyre battle could be on ...

First weigh-in this morning - slowish start to the year - lost 1.6kg in 2.5 weeks, but have been putting on a bit of muscle too,
so not a disaster.
Hope to be sub-100kg by next month

Further weight loss this week. I think I might now be at my lowest weight since I joined Free Spirits in July 2006.

Thanks Paul

I had a bit of a mad weekend, so I expect the downward trend to be reversed next week unless I'm very well behaved over the next few days.

Still broadly in the correct direction but looks like diminishing returns have kicked in. Shame, as I can't consume less alcohol, nor erg more, all that is left is the diet - and my discipline regarding that is starting to creak. If I don't report back in a month it means my emphasis has changed from BIRC 2019 to the world hot dog eating championships 2018 ...

I've fallen off the wagon quite a bit over the last three weeks. :oops: #-o [-X

Various things on, including visitors for a week and three nights in London. Also, I've picked up some aches and strains from erging and have taken the last week off to give things a chance to heal up. I'm relieved to be still in the green zone, but getting too close for comfort to the amber zone. I'll try to behave better over the next week as I'm off to London again for another three nights next weekend - will be going to Wembley for the first time ever. :mrgreen: COYS!!!

Trip to London cancelled, unfortunately. :evil: Anyway, weekly weigh ins are a bit TMI, so I'm going to do monthly updates from now on. Managed to take off some of the weight I put on over the previous few weeks.

Slow off the mark to join this thread, but been working on my weight loss for a while now.

Hoping the Mud Season Challenge will put me in the money with the weight loss challenge at work. :P

If I've got the dates and weight converted correctly here's my stats:

I know I said I'd do monthly updates from now on, but I'm heading to Alvor this afternoon and I think a weigh in before I go might help to keep me honest (or at least provide some damage limitation) while I'm over there. I'm still in the green zone, but creeping back towards orange.

Thanks to the Mud Season Madness Challenge, I actually managed to avoid putting on weight while in Alvor and I'm now at my lowest weight since before I joined Free Spirits almost 12 years ago. :mrgreen:

Despite the Mud Season Challenge I only lost 0.5kg this month.
Once again, good training and bad eating - however, I have lost a few inches and added a bit of muscle so not all bad :

Still going in the right direction, apart for a minor blip over Easter. Original intention was sub 98kg by the summer but now hoping for closer to 94kg ... we'll see.
