ACF Losers Club 2011

Postby The Womble » Sun Dec 26, 2010 6:53 pm

It's still a few days out yet, but maybe we can start with our current weight and goal weight for the comi ng year to get us all in the mood for a fabo 2011!
As for me, surgery on my bum region 3 months ago has had me off the bike and unable to walk more than 2-3km at a time, and thats when I'm not bleeding.
As the surgery wasn't too successfull I've been told I have to go back in in the new year and I'm getting both angry and desperate to get stuck into things again. I've started the weights again in the last week and have avoided all the Christmas food so far. I'm just too aware of my weight in the last half of this year.
My current weight:124kg :evil:
my goal weight: 80kg (8 years ago)
2011 goals: first race in 20 years
Get back to 7.5 litres lung capacity (currently 5.1)
First EVER 200km ride (previous milestone 124km)
Good luck everyone!!!

We were thinking about a name change but meh whatever,yeah its best if losers weigh in and post their weight weekly but also alot of us not all have the whole years posts every week so people can follow their progress,i copy and paste mine from a word file so at the end of the year i'll have 50 odd weights posted plus weekly k's get posted next to my weight.does that make sense? Hope so

Current weight: 116kg, was 114kg prior to xmas. DAMN xmas lol
Desired weight: 85kg can't remember when, closest I've been is 90.9kg some 6 years ago
Goal: To get back on my bike when my ankle lets me! Got a trainer coming which should see me getting some km's in every day whilst I regain my strength

Its called a Spyrometer. You can pick them up cheaply enough. Or ask your GP for a test.
It isnt the same as a VO2 Max test

Hadnt decided,had 1/2 a dozen imaginative ideas but they didnt jump out at us,prob would have gone with something boring in the end like losers club or something,i thought my idea of '2011 tour de loser' was awesome tho! Lol

No problem. Cycling Health seems logical for this thread as this sub-forum didn't exist a the start of 2010.

Okay so somehow despite riding about 7000km last year I still finished up heavier than the same time the year before. Somehow being, eating way too much clearly. So I'll be in on this and stock with it this time.

My current weight:116kg
my goal weight: 85kg by 25th June (my birthday)
2011 goals: Ride 10000km's. Run a bit too, not something I've ever enjoyed. Want to run the City2Surf here in Sydney

01/01/2011: 116.2kg
