Oh very well done Dave! That is a most impressive achievement - your walking goes from strength to strength too, doesn't it. That must help a lot... Over 60 miles in a week? WOW !

Congratulations, Dave, that is what I call a RESULT!
Have not been good this last two weeks, pancakes, waffles and what not, so no loss to report. I did do a 5 mile walk this morning before the rain came down, but the weather is really miserable at the moment and it gets dark early in the evenings so really finding it hard to get out every day. Another few weeks should see that situation improve. Walking every day or at least 6 times a week really really helps me to keep on track, not to mention using up those calories!

Well, after a family party over the weekend, I was NOT expecting a loss. But I only put a half pound on, which is neither her or there, making me ten stone one and a half pounds Hoping to have a good loss this week smile

After walking 17% less this week than last week, and leaving the calorie counts even with last week, I still dropped 2 more to sit at 14 st 10½ pounds. Time to raise the counts again.

Have to do another small uptick on the calories, as I dropped 1½ pounds this week, and am now at 14 st 9 pounds.

As a US citizen, I don't really get the "stone" thing. Didn't you all start the Industrial Revolution? I can see you stepping into the cup of a large scales and having someone add 14 pound stones.

What do you weigh? about 208? Unless you're a munchkin, that doesn't sound too bad. I need to take off about 30 pounds myself, but I'm getting older, and for some reason, old people get skinny.

I don't want to be skinny. If fried lard smothered in grease isn't on the menu, I'll pass. LOL

What I mean to say is, congratulations! You sound like you're doing great. Keep it up!

I'm in the US as well, bitterlyold, and have been using mine consistent with everyone else. A stone is indeed 14 pounds, and I am now 205. I'm 5'10" tall, so not exactly a munchkin lol.

Another pound [ 1 14th of a stone smile ] this week so down to 10 stone 5 lbs. Still a long way to go but the sun is shining and all's right with the world. btw Bitterlyold, you make 'starting the Industrial Revolution sound like an act of war, instead of a ground-breaking achievement smile

LOL dg, I meant that "stone" sounds like a stone age way of measuring something. I avoid modern scales, too. I measure in "holes" as in: I have to awl another hole in my belt to hold up my pants.

I am also 5'10" and about 225 lbs (pounds, not stones). So yeah, I need to cut back on the fried lard. Next time I'll just drizzle on the grease instead of dipping it. LOL

Carry on, friend! Send me your "fat clothes."

If you're at 225 currently, then your goal weight is 195, as is mine when I start wanting to drop again. I've been trying to stop dropping for the last three weeks, and now I'm at a point that if I drop more, I won't have any to drop later!

You don't have to post weekly, but it is what most do.

The clothes I am wearing are even a bit big on me!

When I got home from work and my Fitbit synced, I earned my 2000 mile badge! It took me two days shy of six months to get the first 1000, then exactly five months to get to 2000.

And after a good Mother's Day, and various "goodies" I only gained 3 quarters of a pound, which made me VERY happy! Ten stone two and three quarter pounds suits me! laugh
