Thought I would publish the weights and dates that have been entered into the diary.
It took about 15 months I think to loose 10kg when I had been diagnosed with high blood pressure.
I had no plan as such, thought my diet was ok and thought a 30 mile flat cycle ride around the Wirral was more than enough exercise for a week.
At the peak in late 2004 I was 132Kg, hadn’t seen a set of scales in long time.
I started the Lifestyle and Weight Management Course at 122.2 Kg after the consultation in Febuary 2006.

I can’t see the weighin being more than plus or minus 1 Kilo of the November figure. The diet or eating plan is running like clockwork, the only variable these days is the amount of exercise I can get in, in a given week.
Virtually everybody has asked if I feel better in myself, the answer is I have never felt better. The difference is truly staggering. I’ve had more than a few cases now where people had no longer recognised me. The difference is that great.
17 Sep 2006 (92) KG unofficial weight after the Eureka Cafe ride. Probably a bit of fluid loss there but the trend is still down.
09 Oct 2006 (90.0 Kg) unofficial weight after CTC Dragons Den ride. BMI 27.8
28 Oct 2006 (88.6 Kg) unofficial weight maintained for 3 straight days BMI 27.3
04 Nov 2006 (87.0 Kg) unofficial weight
24 Nov 2006 (87.2Kg) I’m doing a log of this months Body fat analysis results which I will post in due course. Nothing scary about them other than the body fat is still around the 30% mark.
27 Dec 2006 88.6 Kg Considering it is Christmas and the trouble I’ve had on Christmas eve, I don’t think it’s too bad.
02 Jan 2007 88.0 Kg
16 Jan 2007 87.1 Kg back into the old routine. Now for those just come here to see the weight loss diary I’ve seen 89.6 Kg in the last week, I’ve been a Bad Bad Boy (Nazareth song) not been able to get down the gym. The Colnago Extreme C dream looked like going down the pan.
24 Jan 2007 86.9 Kg
26 Jan 2007 85.9 Kg All the readings I take are first thing in the morning
28 Jan 2007 85.9 Kg 189.4lbs BMI 26.5 I’ve had 3 days with a constant reading, updated my profile. The extra Kg takes me through the 100 pound barrier that is important to those across the pond.
2 Feb 2007 84.5 Kg Previously had 3 days of 85 kg. Look at the Exercise diary for this week and the previous one.
19 Feb 2007 84.8 Kg Had two days at his reading, I had seen 84 Kg before that but I suspect it’s a freak reading.
21 Feb 2007 84.8 Kg in the morning, 85.1 Kg for the followup class
If this is your first visit here, I’ve set myself a Maximum Weight Limit of 88 Kg. There is no target now, there never has been one. If I tell people that I’ve lost 7 stone there is a look of amazement on most of their faces as the number sinks in. Now the thing is due to the exercise I’m fit too.
There is no fancy plan or tricks about what I’ve been doing just healthy eating and exercise. If I can do it, you can do it, go on treat yourself to a new life.
The ninth followup class was my final weighin on this NHS scheme I’m really glad to have gone the distance, my life’s been turned around. I feel on top of the world thanks to all those that have helped over the last 12 months.
7 Apr 2007 82.9 Kg for 2 days running. 0.9 Kg off a 50Kg weightloss which is a staggering amount to me. It’s getting close to 110 pounds which is nearly a good old hundredweight (cwt). 50 Kg is two bags of cement or plaster. You push these around on trolley at your local DIY store. I was carrying 2 bags worth of fat around every step I took.
22 Apr 2007 82.1 Kg 100 grammes off 50 Kg, it’s not if but when. I’m on top form too, flying up hills and never felt better.
27 Apr 2007 81.8 Kg. Finally broke through the 50 kg (110 pounds) barrier.
02 Jun 2007 82.1 Kg. Feel great, the weight isn’t a problem anymore, now it’s just a number (a staggering number to most). Now it seems all about performance, can I beat the old me.
25 Jul 2007 82.7 Kg. Another Lifestyle and Weight Management followup class tonight.
16 Oct 2007 81.9 Kg BMI 25.3 That last point 3 equals 0.9 Kg not sure if I need to loose that last Kg. The obesity debate is in full flow again, all I’ll add is that it has to come from within you can’t shame people into doing something like this. Looks like 30% of the population are go to be turned into pariahs.
24 Oct 2007 had 81.5 Kg in the book for two consecutive days
18 Dec 2007 82.6 Kg 182 pounds after a morning spinning class.
Now I’ve got a before picture that was taken about two years ago and you’d have trouble recognising me from it. Even the cynical me is starting to come to terms with it.
