Nice one Paul - looks like your body is trying to tell you that you are at your happy weight :P

After 6 months of disciplined eating I felt I needed to let my hair down for a week and ate quite a bit :oops: :oops:
Did manage to get in about 80km on the rower, pretty much all at DF 350 so I have the vain hope that my weight gain this week is all muscle :lol: :lol:
Not unexpectedly, I am up just over 1 kg but confident I will get back on track and reverse this gain.

I am only going to record weekly results for the last 4 weeks and prior to that I am going to have a monthly record.

Not what I wanted to hear Jon, but you are right.
I went for a rump steak blastout this week in order to keep my protein level optimal :D :D but it had no adverse effect as I am under 90kg 3 weeks in a row now losing a further massive 100g :fsbgrin:

Last weigh-in of the 2021 rowing season - slightly up but still below the magical 90kg barrier - not too much rowing this week but 75km walking over the last 2 days - really enjoying exploring the island on foot.

Hello folks,

A month without rowing, due to some back, shoulder and knee pain. Also, back at school for two weeks, which was incredibly tiring, and then back to virtual teaching as the situation in Cali and the department (Valle del Cauca) is getting much worse. ICU occupancy is at 95.7%, we are in red alert. So, school was suspended last week, then we had riots following a national strike on Wednesday - looting, pulling of speed cameras down, general damage. Very understandable - people do not have much there is a push to reform the tax legislation which will hit a lot of people really hard. So, stuck at home with the girls and Sonia.

With the new rowing year starting today I tried the Marathon - that was a slight misjudgement on my part, got to within 7900m and facing another 50 minutes of rowing at the pace I was going at just did me in. Still got a good row in and will be more focussed this month, especially becauase my older brother Marek, is getting his new concept 2 D model (renamed Erg) on Wednesday. So I will introduce to him to Free Spirits and probably get him on this forum, as he needs to lose weight and get fitter.

Been a bit static on the weight front, but clothes are getting looser and I can fit into shirts I have not worn for many years (+10 years at least!). Aiming for sub 100kg by my 50th, and 90ish by October, a year from when I started this Odyssey.

Thanks Peter, Kevin, Steve, Woj.
Well done on your weight loss so far Woj, well over 20 kg already.
The island in question is the Isle of Wight - we moved here in 2016 and love it here.
When my wife has weekend work shifts I take the opportunity to do some long walks , normally between 20 and 40 km - my legs are definitely getting much stronger from the effort and I have had the chance
to see some beautiful areas - the terrain and vegetation is quite diverse for such a small island so there is a lot to see

Well done to everyone on your weight loss.

I haven't posted on this thread in over a month and unfortunately, I have been going in the wrong direction and I'm now back in the red zone. I had got into the habit of drinking nearly every night and I decided that I needed to cut back and have managed to do so for the past few weeks. But I overcompensated by eating too much junk food, with entirely predictable consequences.

I'm going to start posting weekly updates again and I hope that this will help to keep me on the straight and narrow.

Nice going Woj - for me, a hectic work week leading to very little training and bad eating - crept back over 90kg but am not too worried - going to get back to the right side of 90kg but it feels like my optimum weight is around 88kg at the lowest, if I want to retain enough strength and muscle mass.
