Even so you had a little loss, JM, and that all counts!
I was doing great this week, until the kids insisted on me bringing them to KFC (my fault, I've been promising them a KFC meal for about 2 months, it was time to cough up the goods). I blew my whole weekly 'extra' budget of calories, and a little more besides. But I've been walking and cycling, so hopefully I'll have a little loss to report on Friday.

Toni, here in the US, they have grilled chicken, and it is really good. Don't know if they have that in France, though.

By the way: JM, Copago and now your success, Dave, have been 90% of my motivation when it's been tough to stick to it, and for getting back to it when I slip off the bandwagon, rahther than giving up and giving in!

Yes! -1.3 kg (2.8 lbs) this week, I'm happy smile
Now I'll be more serious for the next seven days and hopefully have just as good a week.

Hope you all are keeping your motivation!

Not as precipitous a drop this week, but still down 1½ pounds to sit 2½ from goal! Should be there in about two weeks.

Hang in there, Dave, you've done amazingly well and I'm certainly convinced you're going to hit your goal, and probably before the full two weeks are up!

Plodding on - 10stone 9lbs - another pound off. The 8 inches of snow is making walking a challenge but it's fun. Look forward to seeing you hit your target, dg dave - you must feel a tremendous sense of achievement?

Well done JaneMarple - we are pretty well neck & neck then. I am only 5 ft 3" tall so I'm looking to lose maybe another stone and a half - we'll see.

Congrats to you all!

So bloody hot here that exrcise is a bit tricky. If i do any manual work I count that as exercise for the day :p Have my eating mostly on track but must work on the exercise. Once school starts again (two weeks) I will be back into a proper routine.

A better week for me - 10 stone 7 1/2 lbs, so 1 1/2 pounds this week. That's the fist 4 weeks done and I'm still feeling quite positive.. Hope you have a good week dg dave and wrap this thing up.. I think JaneMarple's weigh-in is tomorrow? - Good luck!

After that, I plan to keep it about where I am at now for awhile. I'll probably post each week and want to ultimately lose about 10 more after I let my body catch up. Almost 90 pounds in 14 months is a lot to lose!!

Rather disappointed with a quarter of a pound weight gain this week, which makes me ten stone 1 pound However, a quarter of a pound is neither here or there, it should be shifted next week laugh

Sorry to hear you sound a little discouraged JaneMarple! Hope for better news next week. I took up dg dave's suggestion of buying a Wii and ordered a 2nd hand one this afternoon - Will report on it when it arrives... It sounds the business with a good range of games.

One of these days I will get that elusive 30,000 step plateau! I've broken 27,500, 28,000, 28,500, and 29,000 for the first time ever and have only seen 27,000+ twice otherwise (27,018 and 27,254 - both on a Thursday!). For a measurement, 28,558 is a half marathon of steps!

edit: ended with 29,225 steps yesterday!

Well, I trumped my above post today by breaking these 500 step plateaus:

29,500
30,000
30,500
31,000
31,500
32,000 (yes, six different ones! smilee)

By the time I get to bed, I'll have walked 14.7 miles today!

Next Fitbit badge is at 35,000 steps in one day. I'll have to work on getting there at some point lol.

edit: ended at 32,265 steps, or 14.8 miles.

Wow, only just found this thread (probably because I've never been concerned about my weight before) but it seems really useful.

I looked down at my belly a week or so after Christmas and realised that although I'm generally fit and healthy and not clinically overweight I was developing a real pot-belly. Therefore for the first time in my life I've decided to really change my habits.

I've since gone from my record weight of 12 st 3 pounds down to 11 st 9 in a month.

More important than the weight (I shouldn't necessarily be losing weight) though is my waist, already fitting back into a pair of jeans that to my dismay, I couldn't get on at Christmas!

After 14 months of counting, I have reached (and surpassed) my goal weight of 15 st. grin I weighed in at 14 st 12½ pounds, for a drop of 2 this week. Now it is time to level out for awhile (91 pounds later) and stay at about where I am for a few months. I'll continue to check in weekly but may not be changing weight much now. I even raised my calorie counts each day this past week, but walking over 131,000 steps (just over 60 miles) will also cause more calories burned. Will keep my counts about what I did last week and probably walk a normal week (a normal week is about 52-55 miles). Will see what happens doing that.

Once I begin to drop again, I plan to drop only the rest of the weight above 14 st. That will get me back below 200 pounds.
