    Just sink a pint of water when tempted and it’ll make you uncomfortably full, removing the desire to put anything else in your stomach :).

    1250hm, 30.5km

    So many broken branches on the trail… Supposedly there was an ice storm which brought down loads of trees and branches.

    No scales to hand…

    perfect example of why weighing daily is not -> IMHO <- useful or helpful.

    I both agree and disagree. Looking at that single reading in isolation can be confusing at best. If you’re recording lots of those readings and applying moving averages to them they become a lot more useful. I lost a good chunk of weight well over a decade ago after reading The Hacker’s Diet – I don’t think all of it is great but the signal and noise chapter is worth a read at least.

    When I remember (ie. when I’m actually trying to lose weight) I weigh first thing in the morning after a wee but before doing anything else. It used to go in a spreadsheet but we bought a Withings scale years ago so it just beams into their app and does all the smoothing / averaging stuff.

    Biggest benefit IME is that daily reminder I weigh more than I want to be (I don’t pay that much attention to the number beyond what it starts with), and to eat sensibly today.

    I weigh myself everyday. I find the anomalies very interesting and now that I have gotten over the ‘fear’ of staying the same weight for a few days, or indeed going up , I think it’s fascinating to see how different foods effect you I.e salt , red meat etc

    Food recommendation.

    Aldi sweet potato burgers. Can be cooked, but ready to eat so works as a quick lunch on the go. Just under 400kcals for both.

    £1.49 and also do a beetroot version.

    I weigh every few days tried not to after Friday night/Saturday but did this morning and things are heading the right way even after that so pretty pleased.

    Weigh myself most days, as I think it’s interesting to see what has the biggest effect.
    Only out on 0.8lb over the weekend, so happy with that. I’m much better at controlling diet during the week when I only bring healthy grub into the office.

    Haha I’m not pretending to be perfect… I caved and ate a whole slice of bread yesterday!

    But the good thing about being on the “diet” I am is my target calories are pretty low so even when I do slip up and go a bit over I’m still eating waaay less than before

    I uploaded that bacon&eggs picture via imgur and it is now my most commented on/liked picture ever. “Beautiful simply beautiful” being one example 😆

    Although most of my other ones are just car wheels or random tools… (My impact wrench has a rating of -12 people really don’t like it)

    Yay to lamb burger – note the singular ;).

    Eat whatever you want, just not as much of it as you might want to.

    I’ve got too into feeling hungry all the time and have been losing weight a bit too quickly, so I had a *massive* pasta binge on Tuesday night to even things out – it was awesome!!!!

    Weird.

    Lightest I’ve been in a while and still have a little podgy belly.

    All those carbs I guess 🙁

    ha cheers Rob. I did the same with a panettone we found at the back of the cupboard left over from Christmas. Felt hungry and a bit down due to lack of cake so smashed a tenth of it with two teas on Tuesday . Rock and/or Roll 😮

    Definitely Yay. As many as you can eat. And then buy some more. Just make sure they are welsh lamb 🙂

    Over 7000 metres of climbing this past week and trails to die for…

    Couldn’t give a rats arse about weight loss… Sure I’ve dropped some weight, but I’m feeling happier than I have in a long time…

    Aw crap… I thought it was every two weeks 🙁

    May not be a pretty number…. if I’m the same as last week I’ll be happy (even though I’ve been pretty good on the carbs)

    I was doing ok at the start of this week, but it’s too cold dark and miserable forma decent calorie deficit on my commute, I was really flagging on Tuesday night, then the Mrs suggested a chippy tea, I didn’t put up much of a fight.

    I think I’ve lost a pound in 2 weeks

    Previous 3 weeks I rode 300km a week and put on weight. Haven’t ridden at all this week in prep for the puffer and lost 1.5kg 😕

    I did wonder how comes you were top 3 last week and had only done 10 k this week. So looks like you will still beat me this week with a late effort at the Strathpuffer :-).

    Damn. Looks like I will have to bang out a long ride this weekend if I am to stay in the top 3 for at least 1 week.

    You do! 😉

    You also have the BB200 to work towards Tiger6791

    Half a kg in the right direction this week. Probably the best I can hope for given the current lack of exercise – once it’s down below 90kg, I can crank up the lunch time runs a bit without knee trouble.

    A nice steady 600g loss this week. Despite eating cake (a missing Christmas cake from a supermarket).

    Another pound down. So far my plan of eating dust in the week, and the opposite of dust at the weekend, seems to be mildly working.

    excellent work all, half a kilo for me despite my panettone debacle on Tuesday.

    Another kg off here from last week which is odd as I’ve been away working for a few days – no exercise and restaurant eating for a couple of nights combined with a Burger King on the drive back.

    My weight seems to oscillate day to day so if I draw an average line through the “noisy” data it’s more like 1/2 kg loss this week which is still in the right direction!
