    I’m in. The last 8 weeks of house moving etc. has undone all the progress made this year.

    I’m in- new job last year has put me back to where I was at the start of Chub club 2020.

    Less Xmas turkey, more Xmas pudding!

    I’m in again. I’ve not lost much across the last too chub clubs, but hope springs eternal

    Cheers for making the effort.
    I’m in again too.

    Absolutely must make some losses this time. Aiming for 10KG ish, depending on start weight tomorrow.

    Weighing in 63kgs should be able to put on a few kgs by Crimbo with a bit of effort.
    Thinking about it I’ve pretty much failed every year for the past 40 years; no this time I’m gonna do it honest.

    I’m in – I seem to have put a bucket load of weight back on over the last 6 months through injury and lazyness…….

    I’ve slowly crept back up to 92kg from 87.8kg so need to get some focus before the christmas feed.

    Yes please!

    I’m planning on building my weight up a bit over the next 3 weeks (holidays), but will then make a spectacular comeback and hit my 73Kg goal by Christmas… probably.

    Can’t get Google sheets to work on the phone, but weighed in at 82.4kg this morning.

    Premier Icon twonks

    All you skinny’s 🤣

    121kg for me this morning.

    Never want to see that number again on my scales.

    Thanks for this. I have to step up to the (smaller) plate as well behind target.

    This means existing 2lbs p/w leisurely loss has now drifted into an angry 3lb p/w battle. It will be done.

    In.

    Surely the brexit food shortages will make it easy this year?

    Yay! Bravo for organising this.

    FFS, I’m not a luddite but it appears I am! Never used Google sheets and ffs had difficulty ‘dragging column D’. Anyway, mucked up the one above me (sorry Hexhamstu, and God knows what I did with mine, eventually I think I have got the formulas in, but the format is a bit out – can someone with a bit better excel experience than me (ie everyone) sort it please, and I promise not to mess with it, other than entering my weight) again.

    🙁

    I’m in – will update sheet when on my PC.

    Summer chub club 2021 was my first and really good for me. The pressure of getting weighed each week was enough to see me drop from 82kg to 77-point-something kg. I didn’t have – let alone implement – any kind of strategy or diet.

    I’m looking to get to 73kg this time. I’m heading into summer here (Aus) so should be able to focus on riding more than I have recently. Beer in the sun will temper that somewhat though!

    Hmmm… static this week, not an ideal start. Not too late to join folks, just add your details at the bottom of the spreadsheet.

    Well I joined another fitness group thread on Monday. Went to the pool, then a nice bike ride.
    Tuesday – went to the pub and drank half my bodyweight in beer.
    Now my hangover has finally cleared, I really need to take this fitness stuff more seriously.
    So I am In.

    Dialled it back to 2lb target loss per week after a short talk with self. In saying that, first weigh seems I only lost 1.5 and ai don’t want to get it into only weighing after dropping the kids off…so bah. Chips and beer did it. Now there’s a wedding this weekend. A BBQ also 😭

    Surely the brexit food shortages will make it easy this year?

    You think we’ll run out of taters and oil? Nooooooo…

    100g down – and we’re off to a slow start!

    Premier Icon MoreCashThanDash

    Ĺost 200g this week. Below target but frankly I’m amazed as it’s been a mental week work wise, way too much snacking, and both planned evening rides cut short with tubeless issues.

    100 Days till Christmas starts next week for a bit of added motivation. At least that’s 30 minutes a day I won’t be snacking.

    I’m in, injury after injury and finally back probs for the last 4 months have meant no exercise and the weight has just steadily crept up.

    Chub Club’s back! Hooray. I missed it last week – was away at Lindisfarne festival so I weighed in anyway at 14 stone 1 which was uber impressive as the pal I was meeting there who I hadn’t seen for well over a year weighed 14 stone 1 and a half….. And I’ve always been the fatty. Great to be the ‘skinny’ one for a change 🙂

    Obviously the downside of festivals is that there was plenty of drinking and eating so weighing in this morning was always going to be a “one on the scale at a time please chubster” kind of experience – 3lb on since last week which I was quite pleased with on balance. We’ve got another weekend drinking / music session on the 18th, then I’m away on holiday from the 1st Oct. Think it’s going to be a bumpy ride but I’m hopeful that I can keep moving in the right direction overall.

    Well I did the first weeks weight in……

    Bad news – haven’t lost anything
    Good news – not gained anything!

    Thanks for this Coconut. I lost over 4kg in the previous Chub Club, mainly from cutting out alcohol and biscuits as well as an increase in weekly riding mileage. Just back from a week’s cycle touring in Ireland which took me down to 90KG. I’ll be mentioning belts in my letter to Santa ‘cos my trousers are already hanging halfway down my arse.

    Half a kilo down for me, that’ll do, it’s a start.
    Lost 17 kilos on the last one, so just another half stone to go to my target of 11 stone.

    Thanks for the motivation everyone

    Back from holiday and have put weight on and the photos… well things have been heading south. The target may be slightly optimistic but if I can lose a lb or two each week… it’s not infeasible.

    Premier Icon iancity1

    Hmm, up for me. Thought I had quite a good week ish, definitely less alcohol. Need to realise other thigs need to change as well I suppose – bit of an eye opener as thought just cutting the booze would be the miracle cure.

    I’m back in, will fill in the spreadsheet later. Lost 10kg in the first 2 clubs, put a couple back on in the summer, lost them again but still a long way to where I’d like. It’s definitely calorie reduction for me, kept the exercise up this year so it’s not that causing that slow weight loss, so easy to think a bit of junk food is Ok because I’ve exercised.

    This links in well with the other thread “100 days of exercise to Chrisamas”. You do a minimum of 30 mins exercise every day till Christmas.

    Premier Icon stumpyjon

    100 days of exercise sounds hard personally I’m aiming for 1000 bike miles, just hit 600 (exercise bike until April), need to do about 26 per week to hit that, just need to get more done now before the nights draw in. I did my lights out this week and found my 10 year old Hope light still had charge and worked.
