Hello All. Had a goodish weekend. 7 and half miles on Sunday, and a healthish B-B-Q, shame about the large slice of unhealthy carrot cake. Anyway, according to gym scales I have a lost 2lbs in the past week - yippee.

Lamb, well done on the PB, you must feel fantastic.

Redhead, isn't being able to eat everything that isn't labelled "poison" and look like a spike at least one of the attractions of running? Fast weight loss scares the h*ll out of me. At the moment I'm happy to lose a bit of weight and would like to shed another half-stone, but not so quickly that tissues other than fat start to melt away.

It got really scary at the turn of the year when I was doing 30+ miles a week, packing away over 3,500 calories a day (try doing that while restricting yourself to a healthy, low-fat, complex-carb diet!) when the various formulas for calculating expenditure suggested I needed about 2,500-2800 calories a day, and disappearing rapidly. I've read since then that heavy exercise can make our bodies produce a substance which causes dramatic tissue loss. I'm obviously one of those who makes lots of it!

Came as a bit of a shock because my normal condition is slightly cushiony. I'm hoping to take the remaining weight off at a leisurely pace between now and the end of the year, but we'll see what happens.

Cheers, V-rap.

oh god you all seem so committed and fit, am hoping that I am going to catch the running bug and melt some pounds away.
