A weight-loss sub-thread of The Long Green Ribbon Thread.
Touch wood, they are fine. Going to try and get under 24 minutes before the end of this month. Will get 2 or possibly 3 cracks at it.
Weight going in right direction. Now have to keep off remaining chocs.
Morning all - need to catch up
My new year fitness plan has been scuppered by the lurgy. On the plus side have lost 4 pounds this week - lack of appetite and no sense of taste or smell an obvious contributing factor.
Starting to feel half human again now.
Hope everyone else is ok.
DD: The lurgy and the resukltant loss of appetite helped me weight wise over Christmas.
3M A bit faster than last 2 days. Good to be back out.
Keeping out of cupboards in evening is helping me in my new weight loss battle.
morning all also need to keep up! I am off to Peru in two days though so it wont happen right away!

It's good compared to 12 months ago, but not so good compared to the last test, but I have changed my medication so am waiting to see what happens.
They're some stats Vixx, the only measure I've got is are my jeans any tighter?
Very impressive Vixx! Going to do my weight and measurements on Wednesday this week. Hopefully a bit of improvement from last time. The good news is I ran Park Run in 23.42 this week. So nearly a minute quicker than my effort the week before. If I could knock a minute off every week ....!
