    Small increase this week.

    Football tomorrow so pie and BEER. Two of my favourite things (and very good pie too) but I'll try and be good for the rest of the week.

    Good position this week given a couple of months of nothing to note due to a holiday & travelling for work. Now at 13:1, down from 14:7 in May and just about where I want to be. The next thing to think about, of course, is keeping the weight level and not get paranoid or obsessed about it. Don't lose too much more (target is a couple of pounds more and given a bit of plateauing recently that shouldn't be a problem) or put too much on (accepting Christmas is around the corner).
    Now... think balanced... think enjoyable... think maintain... think that a diet isn't just a one off just like a dog isn't just for Christmas...

    This thread is great. Blokes sharing struggles and successes with weight. Keep on talking about it, it spurs on everyone who reads it and it isn't just about losing weight, it's also about being sensible and maintaining it. Great story sharing and also great advice. Big thanks to all.

    Still around the 13:13 mark, but I do tend to be kinder to myself at weekends..

    A fasting day today, after a night out yesterday. Coming soon - 200 calories' worth of poached eggs on spinach, and an early night. I've only managed 6-1 this week, staying away with work. Still, I've been reasonably sensible in the week. As said above, sustained sensible behaviour works out in the end.

    Good week. Only half a kilo lost but over 200 miles on the bike and I feel so much fitter. Big group out today and I was up with the best on all the climbs.

    Planning to knock the booze on the head next year. But will it be worth it? I do enjoy a pint, gin and tonic, whisky and dry etc.

    blossomchris I feel better than James Brown

    Still holding at 100kg, no dieting as such, just exercise. The wine tastes better and better unfortunately.

    Bring on the new year with a new effort.

    133.9kg. Despite almost managing a 5:2.

    Turns out that Christmas isn’t the best for weight loss! Right, I’ll enjoy this week, then onwards and downwards in the new year.

    14st 11lb (93.9kg).

    I'm pleased with this having hovered around 15st for a few weeks. I haven't quite made my target (14st 7lb) but I'm not going to lose any sleep as I have now lost over 2 stone since I started.

    Diet is now officially on hold until the New Year. Then we'll go again.

    A friend of mine (a nurse) said to me that "it's not what you eat between Christmas and New Year, it's what you eat between New Year and Christmas that REALLY matters."

    135.2kg. Ugh.

    I haven't weighed myself for over a month now. I guess my weight is going up.

    Depressing and depressed.

    any strenuous exercise that doesn't involve knee's - wrists/hands/grip welcomed??

    (not swimming, it is boring and all I have been able to do for ten years)

    I finished ignoring what I eat yesterday and intend giving it a week before discovering the damage done.

    BT, I feel for you.

    Clearly, alternatives to swimming are going to be tricky to find. How about going crazy and trying to master butterfly? Assuming you haven’t already, of course.
