Week 289

1.6lb loss!

Very happy with that. I've been on track all week,  but I'm still surprised when I lose anything more than about half a pound.

I'm now only 0.2 of a pound short from losing  112lbs, or in British Currency 8 stone - which is a British hundredweight - something I never actually believed I would ever reach.

Starting Weight: 19st 9lb - 275lbs
Current Weight: 11st 9.2lb - 163.2lbs
Body fat: 21.1%
Total Weight Loss: 111.8lbs

Week 288

0.2lb gain

I can live with that. There have been a handful of extras which meant I knew I was unlikely to lose anything this week. However, what this does mean is it consolidates the large loss last week, which I was concerned might have just been a blip.

Should be completely back on track this week.

Starting Weight: 19st 9lb - 275lbs
Current Weight: 11st 10.8lb - 164.8lbs
Body fat: 21%
Total Weight Loss: 110.2lbs

Week 287 - 50kg

2.4lb loss!

Although I've been back on track all week, I wasn't expecting a loss of this magnitude, so I'll have to see next week whether it's sustained or is a blip.

However, dropping under 11st 11lbs, or 165lbs means I've hit the 50kg marker.

During the winter, the coalman delivers bags of coal weighing 50kg, and I can barely pick them up for more than a few seconds, and I need my son to help me decant it into smaller bags.

It now seems mindboggling that 5½ years ago I was carrying that amount extra on me every day.

Starting Weight: 19st 9lb - 275lbs
Current Weight: 11st 10.6lb - 164.6lbs
Body fat: 21.3%
Total Weight Loss: 110.4lbs

Week 286

0.4lb & 0.8lb gains

The past couple of weeks has included 2 trips away for 2-3 days at a time, as well as excessive tiredness and illness, resulting in precious little physical activity.

The upshot is gains (as well as a missed blog update), but cruicially (for my own self esteem at least) I'm still under 12 stone. And everything should be back on track, as from this morning.

Starting Weight: 19st 9lb - 275lbs
Current Weight: 11st 13lb - 167lbs
Body fat: 21%
Total Weight Loss: 108lbs
