A milestone day today.  I weighed in at 178.4 lbs.  51.2 lbs down from my start point and have hit my goal of 50 lbs lost after almost 9 months.  I had 'budgeted' on a pound a week to be sustainable but have come in under that by a long way, well happy!  Tentative running still going okay, not without its challenges, but nothing that can't be figured out and overcome.  

The hope of running a full 5k in 2020 has now become a real, achievable goal.  Looked at the stats on my phone and I've walked just shy of 750 kms this year so far, I can barely believe I'll be adding running to it now.

That is great progress, well done!

I wasn’t going to post this but will for sake of accountability.  A couple of weeks back one of the girls where I work mentioned that she didn’t ask me about an event she was organizing as she wasn’t sure if I should be doing it.

Needless to say ‘I’m in with sodding bells on’ was warranted in response I think.  And if she wasn’t who she is I’d think I got played.  So what is this event?

Climbing the CN Tower stairs next April.  D’Oh! 😆

With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

Very small back twang today.

Moving house in a few days so stopped the gym immediately.

Fingers and toes are crossed for a good nights sleep and hope it's ok in the morning.

I've pretty much stayed away from this thread as I start sweating just by reading about your efforts. However, I had to get a medical check for my teaching licence about 2 months ago. The IKA (NHS equivalent) doctor went on at some length about 'zachari' (sugar) and mentioned 'diabiti' (diabetes) more than once. My private GP, when I showed him the same results, shrugged his shoulders and said that it wasn't that bad, that we all have sugar and that I needed (must) walk for 20 minutes every day.

I haven't until yesterday. The temperatures have dropped from 'furnace' to merely 'oven' and I've woken at 7:30, so I thought, "Why not?"

I've quite enjoyed it and hope to continue. At least until my 'zachari' comes down to normal. 😉

143.7 today so fighting back (again).  Bit to warm to do any long walk (for me anyway) but next few days should be good.

Took my eye off the ball this week and too carried away with the win last week.  Some legitimate medical reasons but regardless was still down to my decision making and responsibility.  Up 3.4 lbs to 181.8lbs.  Back to work.

Sorry for the late entry Shadow. Thanks for keeping me on the list. 

I couldnt make the gym last week due to work and family but felt worse for it. 

I did 90 minutes today and weighed 74.5.

190kg moving relatively quickly, did 195kg afterwards but didn't video that one. Actually in decent shape strength wise given that by the end of most rugby seasons my body is a shell of what I started with!

That's very impressive.

There is an area for weights at my gym also but I can't participate.

However it's always fascinating to watch.

Confession. I missed my walk last Thursday. I woke up late and it was already too hot to go for my walk. By the time it cools down in the evening, it's time for a shower before going out for the evening. The good news is I've been for the walk every day since and the weather is cooling quite fast so there won't be any more excuses. 😀

There should be moderator action against such a thing.  Those shorts are too short for a start.  Typical league short shorts.

When we started the weight recording spreadsheet I had a BMI of 27.3, it has now come down to 25.5

I am still officially overweight but looking at it a different way

I used to be 10cm too short, that's now down to 3cm.

A further regimen of dieting, exercise and stretching and that 3cm could be achieved.

Well done, you'll be a shadow of your former self soon.

Back to 178.4 lbs this morning, lost the 3.4 I gained last week.  Slowly increasing the running intervals though it's clear there's much to be done to string those intervals together into something longer.  I'll get there, just need to focus on some patience and build on how far I've come rather than get demoralised by how far I have to go.

Signed up for the 5k run/walk at the Toronto Waterfront Marathon on October 20th.  Realised I was just using not being able to run it complete as an excuse to not do it.  No more BS, doing it anyway.

Last game of the rugby season today. Going to have a few weeks of easing up in the gym, but this is the most fun few months of the year from a gym perspective.

Considering hiring an online strength and conditioning coach. Currently aiming to give up drinking entirely which would more than pay for it!

142.8, which is the same as last Sunday.  I'm OK with that after a week of going to the cricket (beers n curry) and not doing much exercise due to travel.
