72.9kg the haircut didn't help that much...


Did you also do the nose hair, ear hair, pluck the eyebrows and cut your toenails. Marginal gains left out there if not...... Wink


Saving those for when I'm likely to be heavy.

Dramatic weigh in for me this morning - done on a like for like basis compared to 2 weeks ago as much as possible re time of day, scales, what I'd eaten for breakfast and recorded 70.2kg - a 1.5kg loss.


That sort of size of change is something I could do in a day via diet and exercise change, so it's tricky to distinguish genuinely if there's a loss of fat (which is presumably the aim) as opposed to just a loss of other liquid etc.

Of course, being lighter is generally better anyway, so as long as it's mass lost that won't harm your performance like reducing stored glycogen) so that's great.

For me, if I eat or drink any yeast products, I'll likely add over 1kg overnight. That sort of change is why I weigh myself daily, rather than just the break, but of course it depends on your psychology and there's nothing wrong with either.

I resisted the temptation to do a mid-month weigh in. I don't feel any lighter, but I am eating more healthily. Still no crisps, which for me, is a massive win. We were at a Christening do at the weekend and they put on a lovely spread, but it was all sandwiches and pastry, so I succumbed as I couldn't face a few hours without eating anything. Still having soup for lunch and cut out my obligatory wrap which I usually have with it (180 calories; who knew? Shocked )

Slightly amazed (although I really shouldn't be) that this seems to have become a very competitive thread; yes Jim and Jorgan, I'm looking at you! Smile

Just trying to keep it at the top of the lists whilst all you folk who don't weigh most days get around to using the scales.

(didn't weigh myself this morning!)

There's no competition, as Jim has a puny cyclists physique vs my adonis-like Ironbod Laughing

Despite that 73.5 on Saturday, I seem to have found my winter equilibrium around the low 74s.

I guess that's an interesting question, for those of us who do weigh ourselves daily / most days, how much inter day variation do you see?

If you always weigh under the same conditions (first thing before food/water is easiest to control) then it's generally pretty stable, unless I've done a big session/race the day before, which doesn't happen in winter.

So I do the same, first thing before any food/water and after peeing.

my variation is over 1.5kg related more often to how and more importantly what I've eaten/drank the night before.
