Week 86

Even.

I'm happy enough with that. After the drop last week I was fearful it was an anomaly, but it even flickered briefly to 13st 1lb, so I'm not worried now.


Starting Weight: 19st 9lb - 275lbs
Current Weight: 13st 2lb - 184lbs
KoTRB Weight Lost : 26lb
Total Weight Loss: 91lbs

Excellent. Are you at goal yet? If not, I imagine you're very close.

Arlene - well, the goal is a bit fluid to be honest.

If I lose another 9lbs then I'll have lost 100 - an American Hundredweight.

However, to lose a British Hundredweight I need to lose 112lbs, which is another 21lbs away.

Even then, I'd still be about 5lbs heavier than the upper end of my "ideal weight" according to the height-weight charts.

So, where do I draw the line? I think once I get beyond the 100lb mark it's then a case of trying to get fitter and maybe shape my body a bit.

I sometimes see people going to extreme lengths to lose 5lbs, but to be honest, after starting at 275lbs, quibbling over 20lbs seems pretty pointless.

So long as I stay eating healthily and increase my exercise then I'm extremely unlikely to have weight problems again - which is my real goal

TC - thank you :)

I like your attitude with regards to current weight. Also, your comments on my blog are extremely helpful.
