Best 5km time was 17:07 off 69.7kg at 183cm.
Thereís a balance between weight and cycling power. It also affects swimming to a lesser extent.
Jan 2010 - 74.4kg
Aug 2010 - 70.5kg (Outlaw)
Jan 2011 - 73.3kg
Jul 2011 - 70.4kg (Outlaw)
Jan 2012 - 72.7kg (putting less on over now!)
Jul 2012 - 70.3kg (Outlaw)
Jan 2013 - 75kg (had about three months off here)
Sep 2013 - 75.6kg (London World Champs)
Jan 2014 - 78.2kg (no real exercise for three months)
Jan 2015 - 79kg (did next to nothing in 2014)
Jan 2016 - 90kg (actually did nothing in 2015)
Jan 2017 - 90.7kg (running 30 minutes every other day)
Jan 2018 - 94.8kg (overweight, borderline obese by now)
Jan 2019 - 81.3kg (took exercise back up in June 2018)

I will just be calorie counting and exercising more throughout 2019. Not cutting anything out. Just bulking meals out with low calorie vegetables.
Switching IPA for slimline G&T, etc etc.
Meal planning and writing a shopping list and cooking to it is a big one.

Target is 72kg by June 9th.

78.4kg this morning, around 5kg up on my weight just before IM Zurich last year.

Plan to get to sub 70kg by April as I want to qualify for Nice.

On a positive note, did Tour De Zwift stage 2 last night and Zwift calculated my FTP as 280, up from 273 in my last ftp test.... I was riding hard to keep up a top 100 position but not thinking about my FTP

Currently 76kg, looking to get down to 66-67kg in time for IM Lanza in May. Managed it last year, just through sensible eating and c. 10hrs training per week. Looking to lose 0.5kg per week consistently.

103.7kg this morning (down from 105.1kg on New Year's Day).

First week always seems to come easy as I think there's a bit of a rebound from Christmas. Wasn't all that strict which won't keep working but I'll take it while I can.

Turbo and running but not swimming until leg has completely healed, hopefully next weekend.

80.9kg on 27 December. Aiming for 74kg by 1 February and then 70kg a few months later.


76.7kg this morning, so 4.2kg lost in two weeks.

Managed what I want to eat surprisingly well. Did a lot of walking until I went back to work on the 2nd (and also at weekends) but only a 6k run, three swims and a couple of 30 minute easy C2 sessions. Plan is to up the exercise a bit more now and keep the eating as is.

That's a 32,400 calorie deficit over 14 days!
Which equates to undereating by 2,300 per day.
You BMR will be around 1,700-1,900...so exactly how have you done this?

Sorry, I don't do calories.

Before Christmas, I wrote down a big-picture process plan and have stuck to it. The only difficulty I've had is that work has been busier than expected and so I'm up at 4:45 doing work rather than anything else.

On the first day, I did a lot of exercise (all easy), 4.2k swim, 6k run and walked a lot. Around 31,000 steps.

On the days I'm not working, I do around 20,000 to 30,000 steps (on working days 3,000 to 10,000). The dogs enjoy these days.

Other exercise has been as above (1k easy swim, 30 mins easy C2, etc). Only that one run, no bike. No intensity (apart from a couple of 50m fast-ish in the pool with a mate).

In terms of eating, I've eaten food that I can completely understand what it is made up of (e.g. bacon and eggs) rather than stuff that I can't tell (e.g. bread or chocolate). The only exception to that is that I've eaten some Asda low calorie blackcurrant jelly. I've never felt deliberately hungry (a couple of times accidentally where I've had to travel and didn't have something with me). If I feel hungry I eat straightaway.

I've weighed myself with a withings wifi connected scales most days. I've created a graph, etc. The 80.9kg starting point was a reasonable one (Christmas Eve was 80.4kg and it didn't go down over Christmas!).

I've just looked up my BMR and it says 1,700 cals a day. I will be in the "normal" BMI range when I get to 76kg (so 0.7kg to go).

Looking at my Garmin on the first day (27 Dec) it says my "active" calories were 2,309. Most of the non-working days after that were in the 1,000 to 1,300 range. On my working days, they were 250 to 300 or so.

I don't measure how many calories I have eaten.

I felt I lacked a lot of energy in the first week / ten days. Walking uphill was surprisingly hard at the end of some days. But I was expecting that and it seems to have passed.

Now that two weeks have gone by, my plan is to keep eating the way I am now but to do more low intensity "proper" exercise (so this morning was a 1k swim and I'll probably do a short run at lunch time). But I'm still going to do lots of walking when I'm not working.

The original (very ambitious) plan was to get to 74kg by 1 February. It's going to take a lot of concentration to do that, but I'm more confident I can do that now than I was when I started.

I find that the first 1-1.5kg is pretty quick to lose, I think that it is a case of having less food in the stomach and intestine. If the opening weight was taken in the evening, and the most recent weight in the morning, fasted, and just after exercise (hence dehydrated) that could account for another 2kg

In my case I weighed 79.5kg, in the morning, just after new year, this morning I was 78.2kg, however on Sunday, after a 25km run I was 76.7kg

Cheers Tigger - very informative!

mattsurf - I assumed Tigger was weighing himself at the same time each day and following a testing protocol.

Jorgan - Hipsters make gin, too. The scene moved on from IPA...do keep up

Simple

He has pissed it out.

You are not losing more than 1-2lbs a week of fat/muscle as you state.

But I once lost 13lbs in 2 hours! How...

.. A hot hilly offroad Half Marathon where I sweated away pints of water.

A Large change in Diet and exercise can have a huge impact on water retention.

All you fake fatties will never understand this.

Yep, first thing in the morning.
