I've lost almost 10kg in the last 3 and a bit months. Thats dropped me from XXL shirts to L, and 102+ waist to 97.

I'm basically working on the CSIRO common sense diet, but really the main changes to my diet have been give up chips etc for lunch at work, more fruit and veg, smaller servings. And the thing thats working is more activity. At least 30mins a day walking, bicycling, rowing machine etc for variety and get the heart rate up, not just an amble down the street. I'm doing a daily weighin and keeping it on an excel chart, its quite motivating to see it gradually creeping down even though there is the odd upward blip. The first couple of weeks was hard, but once it becomes habit its easier, dont make excuses and stop its harder to start again than it is to keep at it.

Stubbornness is making me do it basically, the warnings from the doc got serious, just like you.

Another 10kg and I'll be happy. I know I can do it

I knew I shouldn't read this thread ! At 188cm and 108 kg I've been wanting for years for there to be less of me & now feel even more guilty about not doing something about it. I'd love to be down to 85kg so will throw my hat in the ring for this & aim to get down to 95 kg for now.

I'll be in this!

I've always found a long ride sheds a few kgs so am looking forward to the ride to the OCR to start on the weight loss path (as long as I don't end up travelling with the McArgle or RTO groups).

Will have to dust off the bicycle when I get back & stop riding the BMW to work & back.

I wouldn't say it didn't work. You were at least $90 lighter each month.

With that sort of staying power your odds of losing weight aren't looking good.

Morning guys, head fat chap checking in! OK, I just did the weigh-in, I am 100 kg! Lighter than I thought actually!
Anyhoo, my targets are..... 90 kg by the start of November
85 kg by Xmas Eve
I went thru the fridge and cupboards last night and basically ditched every thing, fresh start and all!
I am going the way that has worked for me in the past, low fat and walking and pushy riding.
This has been a terrific response to this thread, we all WANT to do it, we KNOW the benefits, and with support from all our mates on here, I think there are going to be some outstanding results! LETS DO IT!

PS Well done AL58, you are the proof that we CAN do it!

Read this thread last night, after getting about 300kg of firewood and busting it up with the blockbuster, and got to thinking...

This morning (sorer than I have been for a while!) I got to knowing... it's time!

93.6kg dry weight on the scales this morning - ideal weight around 80kg.

Aim for goal weight is November 1 - just in time for the blowout around the Lake Mungo area!

Cheers
Ian

AussieDakar,
You have "penises" ??

Theres your weight problem right there, too many appendages weighing you down


Good luck with the weight loss, guys.

Amazing how many fat pricks ride bikes. No wonder the suspension dudes are making millions.

sub 83kg by Kalgoorlie Day 1

Ok I've got 32 days left to shed another 3.5 kg.

Currently as of today 86.4kg & 25.4% bf

The target is to be sub 83kg and 23% bf by start of Day 1 at Kalgoorlie on 23rd August.

It wont be as good as my 2001 Safari start when I was 81.5kg and ~21% bf, fittest I have ever been

But it will be a damn sight better than the fat porker that bounced the Bergs suspension at last years Safari Day 1 start at Kununurra where I was an embarrasing 92kg and 28.5% bf
