>That is HUGE. Congrats!

Yeah it is, good job!

>My goal is (still) to shed 100 pounds. Just a couple to go ...

There is a very good chance that I am a structurally bigger person to you so the relative weight is smaller, but I remember getting to the 100 lbs. dropped weight very very hard to get to.  The last couple of pounds was harder than the first 30.  I have no doubt you'll get there though.

4/4 on the cycling this week.  Thinking to push harder I should substitute cycling on the weekdays where I don't do it with something else (stretching at least would be a start).

Next week I have 3 days where I can cycle and 2 days travelling.  3 will be easy (no excuses).  Substituting on the 2 other days will be harder.  Will report back.

>>My goal is (still) to shed 100 pounds. Just a couple to go ...

100 lbs weight loss sounds huge. Congrats on the massive progress to that goal.

So, I started with my diet on the 30th Dec and I'm down 2.2KG

I cut out all obvious sugars (chocolate, fizzy drinks, 99% of all juices) and where possible all hidden sugars such as sauces etc... I've left carbs alone but I've reduced the amount I eat of them (bread, rice etc...)

I've cut out all coffee for now as well (10 days and counting) - a combination of the reduced sugar intake and zero coffee but I'm sleeping better and my energy levels are much much better through out the day!

Back to gym tonight for the first time in about a month

Well done.

I'm a bit slow getting the weights off the floor this year, but ditched coffee, sugar and well.. cigarettes! Not had one since Jan 1st. and pretty proud of that as I've been smoking for almost 30 years.

RC, I missed your post earlyer.  Tell Louise congrats on the weight loss.


>Creative666 - 2.2KG

Nice!  That's pretty quick weight loss.

Rumbas, congrats on kicking cigarettes to the curb!  I know that isn't easy.  You're kids will thank you someday.

4/4 for last week.

I've been smoking for almost 30 years.

Wait, how old are you? Good job Raz.

I'm shooting for two strength sessions per week, at least one of which is climbing. I barely managed last week, plus a bike ride.

I've been pretty strict on myself - been eating lots of protein, brown rice, high fiber bread, veg (stir fry and salads), bananas, water and tea.

I'm really committed to kicking the sugar habit and as far as possible processed and packaged foods

Gentle evening back into the gym last night - light weights and medium intensity cardio, I'll give it another go tonight

Didn't get any workouts in this past week as I was in Vegas for a conference. But between two rounds of golf and walking everywhere in Vegas I averaged right around 20,000 steps for 5 days straight. Roughly 10 miles per day.

Hitting the gym tonight to get the weights pumping again.

Nice work in here, good job all! (Congrats on quitting Raz, that's huge!)

For me, nothing last week.

This week, started with personal training for the first time yesterday. Wow, what a difference.

Vball starts back tonight. Getting back in the swing now.

Well done on the quitting, i'm still fighting them and losing!
3/3 last week, about to do 2nd of three this week.
Cut down a lot on smoking and only drinking on Friday nights now.
More energy, happier, getting more done.

Well back at it.
