Week 57

1lb loss!

Although frankly I'm a bit surprised at that.

We did go out for a meal on Friday night and got well stuffed and there have been one or two other wee treats. I was expecting, hoping, for an even weight, so was quite surprised to find myself with a loss. But I'm not going to complain!

Statistical Significance:
This puts me at exactly 14 stone


Starting Weight: 19st 9lb – 275lbs
Current Weight: 14st 0lb – 196lbs
Total Weight Loss: 79lbs
Weight Lost since joining the Knights of the Round Bottoms: 14lb

8-WEEK Permanent weight loss programme

A UK charity is looking for people who can take part in a short market study for a product range that is clinically proven to achieve long-term weight loss in eight-out-ten people. This product is currently being investigated as a possible permanent solution to unhealthy weight gain.

A simple questionnaire will be emailed to 1,000 people, some of which will be given the opportunity to try the products free of charge as part of the study.

The weight loss programme is totally independent from diets, slimming clubs, or medicines; and has already been adopted by the NHS in the north of England who have successfully treated many of their patients over the last two years.

Once the study is finished, the charity will release its range to the general public.

The questionnaire should take less than 5 minutes to finish and, since your personal details are not required, it is completely anonymous.

Please only apply if you have tried conventional diets or exercise regimes with limited results, or if you have an issue with your weight.

Please register your interest by contacting:

Sam Barona

weightloss@izly.co.uk

Only the first 1,000 emails will be replied to. If you dont receive a reply email within 24 hours of sending it, please accept our thanks for expressing your interest.

Your help can really make a difference to millions of people!

Sam makes sense. He obviously knows more about this weight loss thing than you do.

I once went from 230lbs down to 180.
Took me over a year to do it.
In the three years since, I've gone back to 220. Wish I could get it back off again.

Well done Kim, when was the last time wyou weighed this much?

Congrats on getting rid of another pound. Is a "hundredweight" 100 pounds? If so, you're 79% of the way there. That is something about which to feel very very proud.

Sam - I normally delete spam like this straight away, but I've left a comment on your permanent-weightloss.blogspot.com site and wait to see if you will respond. If not, I'll delete this.

SafeTinspector - I'm not sure why you think Sam knows more about it than I do. I'm extremely sceptical of anyone offering guaranteed weight loss that doesn't actually deal with the reasons why people over eat in the first place.

Fatmammycat - I'm not totally sure to be honest, but my best guess is around the end of my stay in Canada, so we're looking at 1993

Lady Lean - It depends whether you're using the British or US weight system. A hundredweight in the US is 100lbs, but in the UK it's 112.

Strictly speaking, if I lost the British 112lbs then that would put me down into the "ideal weight" region according to the height-weight charts. However, if I reach 100lbs off I'll be more than happy. I'm not going to kill myself for the sake of a few pounds. Having been 275 pounds, I'm not going to quibble over the difference between 163 and 175.

To be honest, if I never lost another pound I wouldn't be too worried, so long as I didn't start piling them back on again.

But the focus is all about eating healthily and the weight loss is a side effect of that so I should eventually settle at a natural weight, which I guess will probably be somewhere between the 2 figures

My endorsement of the Sam fellow was intended to be ironic.

I'll have to introduce you to my flimsy sarcasm paste someday. Its a bit like vegamite, but its American and tastes better.

Kim Ayres said...

Always the problem that the written word doesn't always convey the irony. You're right, I should have noticed.
