Week 276 - a new record low

I don't know what happened to last week's stats - clearly I forgot to write in week 275 and my 0.4lb loss that week.

However, the big news is this week I have lost 1.6lb. And this is highly significant for me

By taking me down to 12st 3.8lb or 171.8lb, it now means I'm the lightest I've been since I was in my early 20s.

My previous lowest point was back in July 2007 when for one week only, I was 12st 4.2lbs, or 172.2lbs. Then I bobbed back and forth around the 12st 7lb mark (which was the 100lb down point from my original starting point) for several months until Christmas, where I put on a few more pounds, never really lost them and a very slow creep back began.

By September last year I had risen above 14 stone to 197.6lbs and that was the point we managed to begin turning it round again.

In fact, if you scroll to the bottom of the page you can see quite visually the changes on the trackngraph.com chart

So I am now the lightest my wife has ever known me - I was around 185lbs when we first met, nearly 20 years ago.

Starting Weight: 19st 9lb - 275lbs  
Current Weight: 12st 3.8lb - 171.8lbs
Body fat: 22.8%
Total Weight Loss: 103.2lbs

A new birthday suit would be good - this one's looking a bit saggy...

Congrats, mate! Freaking awesome! Don't go getting too skinny, now! ;)

Sayre - thank you :)

FMC - never ending I think...

C in DC - thank you :)

FLG - little chance of that. In the highly unlikely event I lose another 14 pounds, I'll then no longer be "overweight" according to the height-weight charts
