Bit of an update, almost there !

Week 12.

Weight at start 103.5 kgs
Target weight 82 kgs

Weight now 84.8kgs

Weight loss this past 3 weeks 3.4 kgs
Total weight loss is 18.7 kgs

Another 2.8 kgs loss gets me to the target weight.....

Sort of took my eye of the ball the past 10 days or so, mostly on the exercise front as I’ve been out of the country twice in the past fortnight and the regular exercise regime was disrupted, but back on track as from last Saturday. The food side of things remains good, still no meat at all and not missing it really if I’m honest, not going to become a vegetarian or anything else but I’m sort of liking a more vegetable and fish based diet. Zero bread/cake/biscuits or sweets but enjoying a few glasses of red wine each week.

Initially had the idea of 50% of my target weight loss by the Carlingford meet but looking like I will almost be at my ideal weight by then......... I suppose when I reach 82kg my biggest challenge is yet to come........ that is to maintain the healthy weight without sea-sawing up and down, making myself a promise that I will be more careful and not exceed 85kg and take action if I should.

I need to go out and buy some smaller clothes sizes !

Well done John :up:
you needn't worry about it being lost, I know exactly where it is, after being on crutches for so long, I have most of it.
I,d just like to get my hands on the currier service you used to send it down here. there didn't appear to be a return address :lol:

Week 17.

Weight at start 103.5 kgs
Target weight 82 kgs

Weight now 81.1kgs

Weight loss this past 5 weeks 4.1 kgs
Total weight loss is 22.4 kgs

Well, 17 weeks in and I’ve hit the target weight..... Hooray 😃💥🍷
Annoyed at myself last week as I almost had it but was 200 grams off the target.
It’s been interesting to say the least, not difficult at all but requires determination and planning to achieve. My challenge starts now and that is maintaining the ideal mass without see-sawing all over the place .... therefore my weekly Monday weigh in will continue.
Still a ‘veggie’! and going to maintain that train of thought with an occasional foray as a carnivore, but not often. So that’s it, goal achieved and if you’re thinking the same then I encourage you to go for it.
