A big bunch of losers (2009 version of Garfield Principal)

Postby Kalgrm » Thu Jan 01, 2009 3:13 pm

I've split the posts from 2009 into a new thread, marking the start of a new year.

___________________________________________________________________


Original weight (kg): 86.7*
Today's Weight (kg): 86.7
Movement since November (+ or - kg): +2.4
Target Weight (kg): 75*


Okay, I have a new target weight now, and a date to reach it by: 01/03/09. I want to be at 75kg by that date. It's the weekend of the Karri Cup (a 100km MTB race). Realistically, I won't quite get there if I do it responsibly, since it involves losing just over a kilo a week - and I'm starting from a weight just a bit too high - but a bloke's got to have something to aim for.

And although my scales said 86.7kg this morning, I'm hoping a fair amount of the unexpected extra I carried onto the scales today was just water. My weight over the last few weeks has stayed steady on 85kg, even up until yesterday morning. The 1.6kg gained in a day is not likely to be permanent.

Cheers,
Graeme

(Can you guess what my New Year's Resolution is? :))

The latest edition of Bicycling Australia has a training / nutrition plan to lose 5kg in 4 weeks.

Saw that. If you are planning to follow it, I for one will be interested in your experience in four week's time.

Good luck

I won't be following it as I don't have 5kg to lose! :wink: (It feels great saying that after getting my weight down from 77kg to 70kg over the last couple of years!) However I do still need to work on my gut!

I'm adopting the ride longer and further diet - although I do have overseas trips in late Jan and late Feb which will muck up my schedule!

Cheers,

Gary

Nah, I have my own - tried and proven - method for shedding the kilos. So far, so good: I'm down 1.5kg in four days, but the first two weeks always sees apparently phenomenal results when you eat properly. :roll: (I replace empty kilojoules from starches and fats with fruit and vegies.)

More importantly, I feel strongly motivated and have no desire to eat the crap which I know makes me gain weight. When I feel like this, I know I'll succeed. It's the same mind-set I had when I dropped from 104kg to 76kg four years ago. Wanting to ride the Karri Cup is giving me the impetus.

Cheers,
Graeme

I reckon you'll reach your target first - I reckon sometime later this week. :)

You'll be shocked to hear how many people will pay twice as much for a bike part, against a comparable product, if it will save them 20 grams of weight.

Burt: "Hi, can I help you there?"

Customer: "Yes, I'm after a carbon bottle cage for my bike"

Burt: "OK, I've got several types over here, and they start at $74.95 rrp"

Customer: "Ok. What's this one worth?" Customer picks out a cage.

Burt: "That one rrp's for $169.95."

Customer: "What's the difference between that and the cheap one?"

Burt: "They're different shapes, and the more expensive one is 20 grams lighter."

Customer: "Ok. I'll take the one for $169.95 thanks."

Burt: "No prob's. Cash or card?"

Customer: "Card thanks."

As they leave I make sure to mention not to drink too much on the weekend.

They NEVER get the joke!
