The last two weeks almost counteracted one another, as I've only dropped ½ pound in the last two weeks to sit at 19 stone 3 pounds.

The important thing is that you are still heading down. It could be that this is your body's way of saying that it needs a little time to catch up. Thirty pounds in four months is a lot, for sure. You're heading in the right direction!

Still in the right direction...1½ pounds since last Sunday. If I can do that again this week, I'll be an even 19 stone (19 stone 1½ pounds this week). That's a total of 32 since December 1.

Well, I had a wonderful weekend, and I'd been picking all week before the weekend. And I've only put a pound on, making me Nine stone twelve and a half pounds! Although I ate what I wanted over the weekend, I also did a fair bit of walking, which probably helped the very slight gain smile I'm very happy with that!

Down .4 kg - still a snail's pace, but the right direction.

Dave, you are doing great!
Jane. It sounds like you enjoyed your weekend. That is also great!

Another two pounds this week to put me ½ pound under 19 stone.

Nice work on your part too, pitegny.

That and playing the Wii twice a week. I've also been watching total caloric intake, and limiting myself to a specific number daily. I do go over rarely, and if I do, it's less than 100 over (I've logged everything (by calorie count and type) since January 1, and if I can't find the calorie counts anywhere (including online) I don't eat it). The first few weeks were hard as it was a new thing (through December), but 4½ months later it's much easier.

Edit to add: I do have something sweet every day too!

Another .3 kg down. I'm taking the slow road these days. I have had a really, really rotten virus or cold that had me in bed for a week and all my parts dragging on the floor. I have not been up to walking and have been pouring in tea with loads of lemon and honey and occasionally sugar. Not good for the calorie count, but did help the congestion. We have a weekend trip with friends to Dijon coming up that will likely set me back, but after that I hope to be more rigorous.

I would like to drop fifteen to twenty kilos by the end of the summer, so need to get on the move. Your programme sounds really good Dave.

Same result as last week, and down a total of 36 pounds since December. I'm currently at 18 stone 11½ pounds.

Great results Dave and Jane!

I thoroughly enjoyed a weekend of gourmet meals and wine tasting with our friends in the Burgundy region, but still hope to show some loss by the end of the week. I chose my dishes pretty carefully and walked tons. The bikers in the group did 30 km one day in hilly terrain and 54 km the next along the canals. If I could do that, the pounds would float away; however, seeing their pain at the end of the day convinced me that a snail's pace is not so bad after all.

I wonder if I may go up on the drop next week. I hit the 20,000 step plateau today (currently at 20,004 and could be closer to 20,250 by bedtime). My feet hurt like you wouldn't believe, but I did it!

I was shooting for 17,500 to break my old record of 16,656, but wasn't expecting a nearly 3,400 step rise!

Dave, your last message was so inspiring that I hunted back through the old messages to find the name of your counter and ordered one. I was pleasantly surprised to find it here in France. If I am anywhere near 10,000 steps per day I will be highly surprised, but having something to motivate sounds good.

Final count was 20,325. Now that is a record worth breaking sometime...but it will be tough!

Amazing record Dave!

I was only .2 kg down again this week. The slugs going after the basil in my garden are faster. Though given the gourmet weekend, it could have been worse. The fact that I love food, whether cooking, eating, reading cookbooks or collecting recipes is a major handicap. I am waiting for one of your magic counters to arrive. Hopefully that will speed things up.

My counter arrived and I set it up on the computer. Now I'm ready to roll tomorrow. Thanks for the inspiration. It is kind of neat to be able to track the steps and stairs.

This week is already looking better. My husband had a colon exam toward the end of last week and needed a liquid diet in advance. I prepared him a home made chicken broth and planned on eating the poached chicken and vegetables myself. It was really tasty, so I made another big batch and am substituting it for one meal per day. Our weekend trip also gave me ideas for some cold soups, which will help the dieting.

No change in the drop on the week, even with that 20k+ day. I'm currently at 18 stone 9½ pounds.

If it drops the same amount next week, I will have dropped 40 pounds!

Amazing - both the weight loss and the 20+k day. Having the Fitbit counting makes me realize exactly how far that is. Forty minutes of walking only got me 7,000. Keep up the good work.

I haven't checked in in months, but I'm pleased to say that I've lost about 12 lbs since I started my diet. I got really depressed when I tore one of the muscles in my leg and had to stop going to the gym because I thought that all my progress would be lost, but I've even managed to lose a couple of pounds since then! smile

It was the best at work today when my coworker commented that my weight loss is starting to really show!
