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


Yeah but no but. Lots of middle aged untrendy people bang-on about gin, so it's not really 'hip'. Annoyingly, the popularity of beards has coincided with my leaving the forces, when I can actually have one Rolling Eyes

He has pissed it out.

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



I've no idea how much fat / muscle I have lost. I've certainly lost a lot of water. But I don't know how much.

And because I don't know how much water / fat / muscle / anything else I've lost I don't really care about it. My goal was to lose a good chunk of weight by 1 February 2019 and then lose a bit more over the next few months. If it all happens to be water then I will still be running faster than I was before Christmas. If it all happens to be fat then I will still be running faster than before Christmas. If it is a bit of both, I'll still be running faster than I was before Christmas.

And for completeness, I'm not doing anything to deliberately dehydrate and I have no intention of going for a 10k pool swim in wetsuit just to lose a few more kgs on 1 February.

102.5kg this morning (105.1kg New Year's Day)

Little incremental targets coming into sight, imperial weight starting with a 15 instead of 16 then metric down to 2 digits instead of 3 over the next 2/3 weeks hopefully.

I was 15 Stone 11 (I'm not going to keep converting for the people who think KG just sounds so much sportier) this morning down from a high of 16.3 around New Year.

Back to all three disciplines last week, bike power is very poor, and running is incredibly hard at this weight but the extra buoyancy in the pool helped. First few weeks are always very hard until you start riding the wave.

Still not found a race for the year yet...

First time below 80kg in 20 years - 79.7 yesterday. 2-3kg down compared with start of December so something is starting to shift.

Careful, you'll be wanting rationing back next, and wanting to go to war with Germany. Ah the good old days Very Happy

I use lbs when logging on MFP and weigh-ins etc (as 3,500 cals [500cal deficit per day] = 1lb per week) as it's easy to calculate.

However, power is W/kg and I know my ideal race weight is (read: was) ~72kg.
(70kg was too light)

Similar for me. Emptying the flat of Christmas chocolate seems to have made some difference.

I was making no progress in the immediate aftermath of NY, but the last few days has seen some steady reduction. That's actually combined with relatively little training, as I got some calf pain after my long run a week ago last sunday, so only managed 20 miles last week compared to 50 the week before. Thankfully it has settled down and the 11 mile run this Sunday was fine.

Some extracts of the data...
3rd Jan - 73.7kg
6th Jan - 75.0kg (peaked)
9th Jan - 73.7kg (stayed reasonably steady throughout the week)
14th Jan - 72.5kg
15th Jan - 72.2kg

No, I am talking in a way MOST people in the country Talk. If you told someone in the real world you were 78Kg they would ask What is that in Stones?

If you said you were 170cm Tall they would ask What's that in Feet?

The NHS BMI Calculator Defaults to Stones and Feet

https://www.nhs.uk/live-well/healthy-weight/bmi-calculator/

It's just common Parlance and the way the country understands body height and weight.

For some Reason, Sporty Cunts want to use Metric, because it sounds Sporty and makes them sound part of the club.

To most it just makes you sound a %^&%*, like complaining you have gone from 73 kg to 73.8kg after SERIOUSLY PIGGING OUT OVER CHRISTMAS!

That's a big #@?#...

And don't even get me started on KM or KM-Miles ...Twats



* Of Course if you were raised or have spent a large amount of time on the continent I would understand your confusion, but otherwise speak like the rest of us, and any Americans are free to use lbs

112 doesn't divide into nice easy chunks.
180 does.

Plus 180 is more and you go faster Very Happy Wink

To be honest, Iíve never thought that me using kgs to state my weight made me a sporty c**t. Turning up to work with my tt bike with deep section front rim and disc wheel, on the other hand.... Wink
