Nice 14 miles and net loss. I have ran 20 miles so far this week, hoping to have a long run of 11 miles on Sunday and an alcohol free weekend!

Keep on Running

Regained 2.5lb! Nightmare The last 7lbs could take forever, if ever to lose...

How do you weigh yourself Lard? I usually go to the scales in Boots, according to them I have put on 6lbs in 2 weeks, seems highly unlikely!


I'm sure you will get rid of the 7lbs eventually

I don't think boots is a good idea for me as I weigh myself competely naked! I always weigh first thing friday morning when I wake up before breakfast after going to the toilet using the same scales in the same place, like I say naked. It keeps some constancy.

I don't tthink gaining 6lbs in two weeks is all that unlikely? You could gain that in water? That's only 1.36 lts of fluid, couple of pints..

I'd totally forgot about this thread - some good going guys! I restarted trying to lose it on 31st Dec and currently I'm ~8 lbs down from where I was at a pretty constant rate of ~1/3 lb per day over the last 22 days.  6 lbs more to go by mid Feb, then another 7 lbs by 27th April (5K race) target which should bring my BMI from overweight firmly into the top end of healthy range.. with whatever pinch of salt you take BMI  Can't wait to see my half marathon time if I'm 21 lbs lighter than my last 1:46.  Hopefully taking me nearer that 1:30 area with a bit more training.

Re lost the 2.5lbs...

Good going daeve, after 6 months of continuous weight loss I'd almost say weight is close to as important as training. Its certainly the difference between achieving your goals and not achieving, you can't train out a 21lbs difference.

Going OK this year, lost 5lbs since xmas, mind you 3 of that was Xmas excess, but stopped it going upwards, its a start

Anyone up for tyring this again?

I feel like a whale...ugghh!

Yep, I'm up for it as long as someone can send me a bucket or 2 of willpower. Have got a half marathon on Sunday and I know it'll be a struggle with the extra weight I'm carrying.

Anniesophie, I can totally sympathise - my pace has dropped terribly and the hills suddenly feel like mountains! Got to get rid of the excess baggage pronto but seem to struggle to shift any. Thinking being accountable (of sorts), might help!

I did have a bucket of willpower...but I ate it

I'm up for a bit of weight loss, and when I say a bit I mean a LOT!
