Week 262

1.8lb gain

To be honest, that could have been worse. This past week has seen my daughter's birthday celebrations, a trip to see my stepdaughter and her children and a weekend away with my wife, including trips to cafes.

I'm actually craving vegetables.

Well, nearly...

Week 261

0.8lb loss!

I'm very pleased with that, although somewhat surprised as there have been a few little extras this week.

However, for anyone who doesn't know, one of the greatest achievements in the world of bloggers dealing with health and weight issues has been Kepa, or Fat Lazy Guy, reaching his target of being under 100kg, or 220lbs.

What makes this such an astonishing success story is 3 years ago he weighed over 500lbs.

And what makes this so special for me is we've been exchanging blog comments since he started. If you like, I knew him back in his days of struggle and massive self-esteem issues, long before the bold and confident guy he is today.

So this isn't about some distant person who must be superhuman and I couldn't relate to. This is very real.

Here's a wee video he made charting his success


It almost brings a tear to my eye

Here's a link to his post

Week 260

1.4lb loss

So my unexpected gain last week must have been a blip as I've dropped down below my weight from 2 weeks ago.

I'm happy with that :)

Week 259

0.8lb gain?


Don't really know what's caused this. I know I did have a couple of little extras this week - a scone on Wednesday, and a cup of hot chocolate on Friday, but these shouldn't have been enough to cause a weight gain.

It's not so bad when I can see what I've done wrong, but this is disappointing
