Erm. I stood naked in front of a full length mirror (in a hotel room in Berlin) and realised that I was erm flabby.

When I moved to Asia in 1990, aged 30, I weighed 81 kg. Ten years later I was 107kg. yikes

I got my head around it and got down to 90kg, but over the next ten years wallowed back up to 105. This time I had a letter from our company medical officer.

I lost it about two years ago, and tend to float around 90-92 kg now. I could still drop another 10kg and look healthy. I'm 52 now, and exercise daily when I work offshore, and keep busy when at home, but the pork is still there, lurking in the sidelines, just 'weighting' to slip back onboard.

when I moved to Asia in 92, I was 24 and weighed 75kg, when I got married in 95 I was 80kg. As i got into my 40's I was 90kg.

I gave up smoking on june 25th last year I was 90kg. By september 7th, I was 101kg, by christmas I was 108kg. It was great fun getting there.. I ate, drank, ate and ate some more..

In march I got my head around it. got my bike out, cut the calories, gave up the regular booze.

yesterday I dropped below 100 for the first time since september, my target is... 90kg by june 25th.

I wouldn't take any great notice of a couple of pounds or so. A good sized glass of water will put on a few ounces.

What I tend to look at is long term trend. Over a week I can be up and down each day by up to 4 or 5 lb (2 to 3 kg).

a decent pee and a good poo can drop your weight by up to a kilo ...

hence all the stuff with messing about with hydration status just before a weigh-in in sports where weigh-ins are part of the system.

Good work in making a start on doing something about it. If you're heart's in it, then the next few weeks will be all go, but do dip in and out of here to get some motivation or inspiration if you start to flag as life changing is rarely an easy road and the best of us falter at some point.

I'm a mere 5'8" and my all time high was 88kg. Tubby. I started 2012 at 86kg and am currently 77kg and pushing on. Trust me, it makes a massive difference to how you feel. Go for it.

I have decided that I will take my weight at 6 every weekday morning, (except bank holidays), because 8 hours asleep will hopefully help to alter the variation. But clearly weekly trends are more useful, anyway update :
Thursday Morning was 102.2
Friday morning I was 101.8

Problem I see is that I spend 4 nights a week in digs and only weekends with my wife and family, but it turns out she is part of the problem, because whilst she weighs next to nothing she snacks all sorts of crap all weekend, and thinks I should help get it from the snack loaded kitchen.


Yesterday I was even encouraged to make my "speciality" scones and provide them with clotted cream.
Saturday she insisted we go out for a curry, and last night she offered wine, and crisps before the healthy tea I'd cooked.

But anyway, I've managed to avoid most bad things so we will see what Tuesday am brings in my weigh in.

Sometimes people do things like feeding us because they love us and want us to be happy unfortunately for those trying to lose weight it obviously has a longer term negative side effect.

I've seen this plenty of times and its usually done with the best intentions.

The best thing to do is to sit her down and explain to her about your unhappiness and what you are trying to achieve and then ask her to support you in your goal.

Loosing weight is difficult specially if you aren't both on the diet, I was loosing weight with my wife, she's now pregnant and off the diet which means I may have accidentally slipped off the diet as well. One thing we found whilst loosing weight, one day off the healthy eating has little effect, you still loose weight but it may be 1.5lb instead of 2lb that week.

It goes against a lot of the advice out there, but I find skipping breakfast is good thing. Light lunch and a nice meal in the evening. Consuming as few calories as possible is easier for me than eating normally and doing lots of exercise.

Since birth for me - 29y ago.

I may have been weighed the first few times, rather than me weighing myself.

biggrin

If someone's weight isn't in stones and pounds ie in kgs or just lbs, I struggle to know whether they're the right weight or severely over or under.

I have exactly the same problem, My wife is a size 8 and eats st all day long, has a cupboard full of chocolate and haribo's, In front of the telly, she's on lemon meringue's or ice cream, all she does is 30mins on a cross trainer and still stays as fit as..

Me.. I even look at something for too long and it just morphs onto my body.. I hate it,

I have in the last 7 days cycled over 160k, have I lost weight?.. no.. just managed to go back to 101kgs, (For those of you in the dark ages that's a burger away from 16 stone)

I'm thinking of doing a real crash diet.. like 1200 kcal a day and nothing else. I'm desperate to lose 10Kgs.. ( 22lb )
