Surely the calories in red wine don't count. :shock: :lol:
It would not be at all strange if history came to the conclusion that the perfection of the bicycle was the greatest achievement of the nineteenth century.

ah well red wine is about 120 cal per glass, so one can get pissed for less calories.

there is an interesting question; whats the lowest calorie way of getting drunk?
for heavens sake dont tell me low carb beer!
Keep flexing, spinning, rolling, coasting, pushing, pulling, drafting, sprinting, time trialling, touring, climbing, descending, hot dogging, crit-ing, racing, weaving, dodging, dropping, tanking, chasing... but most of all - just keep f'ing riding!

Lost a bit more weight this morning when I came a cropper on the river loop and took some bark off my elbow and hip.... :cry: Hit a bump and my right hand got knocked off the hoods. After that it was a swerve, death wobble and then a high side. Landed on my head and smashed my helmet to bits. Better than my head I suppose.... :lol:


Went backwards a little in April after the stack and was 106-107 most times I'd weigh in. Too much bad food and not enough riding.

The past couple of weeks I've gotten back on the wagon and have seen 103-104kgs this week. I'm feeling stronger and trimmer. Down to my last notch on the belt and my size 38 pants are loose now! Did a 29.3km/h avg on the river loop this morning without drafting, which I'm happy with.

I'd love to get to 96kgs by my 10 year wedding anniversary in September. That was what I weighed when I got married and I was fairly happy at that weight.

Longer term, the goal is still 89kgs and a healthy BMI for my 188cms...

Is it too late to join? I'm not going by weight, since I'm trying to gain muscles and lose fat, but I have been taking body measurements.

1/1/12 = 44 - 31 - 44
26/5/12 = 43 - 29 - 43

Goal = 27 inch waist, whatever that means for the rest of me :roll:

Have pretty much given up the booze (maybe a glass or two of wine a month), need to work on giving up cake. Mmmmmmm, cake...

Lose another 800 grams and I’ll be moving from “Obese” to “Overweight” BMI :shock:

Ok bike is now aquired and commuting has begun will weigh myself again tonight but guessing I am around the 114kg mark.

Goal is a healthy 100kg last body scan I had put my lean mass at 84.4 kg so aim to move that up closer to 90 and get fat down.
Think I will be happy to sit around that mark as am considering playing rugby again so will never be a lightweight.

Nice work.


I find that my weight fluctuates. I hit a new low then the weight goes up only to come back down even lower..... then back up but not as high as before. It’s a trend that I’m happy with.


A nice steady weight loss that to my way of thinking means that I’m not doing anything extreme and unsustainable.

Speaking of which



This morning 92.2kg (Highest weight 107(ish) kg and 101.7kg when I started riding) which means that when I lose more 500 grams I move from being “Obese” to “Overweight” according to the BMI charts that is. My legs are letting me down because there is no denying that they’ve put on mass (I’m awesome) 8)

+1 to that. That’s awesome work. Care to share what your typical week is like?







My own scales this morning and yesterday 91.4kg which is BMI 29.8 which means I’m no longer obese but rather I’m overweight. First time in a decade 8)

Happy to be in double digits - just!! Can't remember the last time, maybe in high school.
