I'm glad to hear it.  Of course we only know each other tangentially, but I was really quite alarmed by the news. It's a relief to hear that things are moving in the right direction.
   As far as "The fat enders" goes, you used to be about 35 pounds heavier than I was, and now you've vaulted right past me.  I've got some catching up to do.
It's all good...

I have now lost 1 stone on my new healthy heating regime (no bread, no cheese, no sweets, cake, biscuits, chocolate, more water, no fruit drinks, Kolko instead of milk and more decaf tea, no alcohol (sort of))

Soon I'll be able to audition for Legolas the elf if there's a new production of Lord of the Rings. Mind you, posting about it here will probably be the kiss-of-death for this diet.

5'8"/173cm

The first few months -



Update -



As ever, how I feel and how my clothes fit are more important than the numbers.
The calorific deficit is easy to maintain (I always had a sandwich before bed - about 300 calories - so I stopped having it) and is enough to see steady progress. Another four to six weeks and I'll see how I look and feel then.


e: overall the last six months or so have seen me feel better than I have for the past few years. Good stuff.

Thanks. Allied to the gym and my trapeze lessons (in another thread you asked where I'd been) the past six months or so have been hugely positive.

Good work on your weight loss. You shouldn't feel even for a moment that posting about it is the kiss of death. Enjoy the current benefits and those that are still to come.

Broken finger - no more trapeze/training in general? = bollocks to that. A 'mere bagatelle'.  8)

BTW, my reason for difficulty in posting/quoting etc is because I've finally started to carry a smartphone when on the the go, albeit a five or six year old smartphone. Rhetorical question: who the fuck needs access to everything/everyone, every minute of the day? Maybe parents and/of carers for the elderly. The rest of it is about having an attention seeking/validation dispensing device. IMO, of course.

e2: I usually look at the end of the month, but -


I'll adjust the calories (not by very much) and so deal with it.
