No movement at all this week. I missed a couple of cardio sessions but did all weights sessions.
I find it easy doing half an hour of cardio at lunchtime when I go to the gym in the evening but can’t get the cardio done in the evening if I go to the gym at lunchtime.

“Exercise is bad for weight loss”

Not read the article but I completely agree.

Weight loss means beig in a calorie defecit & this is hard but it’s much easier than exercising AND being in a calorie defecit.

We are incapable of judging calories, pretty sure that’s a science fact, someone will always reward themselves after exercise with more calories than they burnt.

We’re talking about non athletic types obvs.

Healthy vs weight loss is another discussion.

Chipping away slowly, despite hardly doing any cardio last week.

74.7kg again. Did get down to below 74 mid-week, but put it back on. Should get another .5kg off this week.

Forgive me TriTalk, it has been months since my last confession. :wink:

Height = 5’ 7.5” / 1.71m

01/01/24 - 12st 8.4lbs / 80.0 kg

Note: New scales from Feb.24, with different body fat % readings, so can’t compare like with like.

01/02/24 - 12st 6.8lbs / 79.3 kg

01/03/24 - 12st 8.0lbs / 79.8 kg

01/04/24 - 12st 1.0lbs / 76.7 kg

2024 YTD Loss = Annual Loss – 7.4 lbs / 3.4 kg

Overall, 2024 has seen a LOT of eating out & some stress related comfort eating/drinking. :frowning:

But I started using a bread maker this month to remove my main source of Ultra Processed Food.
(Will update that thread another day.)

I’ve got a wedding in two weeks, which will encourage me to focus on dipping below 12 stone.

Cheers, Paul. :slight_smile:

Didn’t do any cardio last week and the gym was only open 1 day over the long weekend, combined with a bit of overindulgence and, ooops!

Not fast enough for my liking but at least it’s a consistent trend. Target of 80kg in the next 2 weeks.

88.1kg yesterday, my winter weight a few years ago, and my pre-triathlon weight ten years ago.

I’ve been depressed about my weight for five years now, stressed for ten. Might be time to stop weighing and worrying. Don’t think I will though, I’ll just keep calling myself a fat fuck in my head everyday - what could go wrong?

April is usually when I start losing anyway, maybe relaxing and letting the cycle happen will be healthier than trying and failing to control it.

Didn’t really get back into a proper routine until the weekend so only 3 weights sessions and a bike commute to work, but watched diet a bit better and at least moved in the right direction a bit.

Sorry, is this meant to be the weight you see on the scales or your Zwift profile?

75.0kg and 3 weeks since my last weigh in. Been on holiday so my weight has been up and down but settled around the 75kg mark. With a couple of long rides coming up, I’d like to get one more kg off.

I probably need to step on again this morning. I’ve lost my 4/5 day intermittent fasting routine with the Easter holidays, so need to get back into that. Had also started snacking in the evening again, and during my week off had a beer or two pretty much every evening.

Back to the normal routine now though, which should help things.

Carrying more leg muscle these last few weeks, sleds / bike intervals I guess

Be nice to hit 70 again for running though

Did a week of tracking calories on MyFitness Pal, averaged 679cal per day below requirement across the week, the result being, drum roll…
106.4kg & 34.0%
I think MFP is giving me far too much credit for calories burnt from exercise , it’s almost doubling my daily requirement for an hour of strength training & half an hour of cardio plus stepcount (@10k) for the day.

Holding fairly steady around the 74-74.5kg mark, which feels good.
