    120.90kgs with morning at 7am.
    No loss this week as halloween frolics. Ha ha
    I'll see what next week brings.

    Need to find my losing streak before I forget what it is.

    70KG today (and for the previous five days or so). This is a drop of 1KG and not welcome (see signature below for history).

    If the past is any guide, it is a random fluctuation. I hope so.

    I skipped last friday's weigh in coz I'd done some fairly severe binging (alcohol and carbs both) and knew it couldn't be good news. Since last Monday I've been pretty strict though; no alcohol at all, and nothing more carby than cabbage. I'm also going to try 8 weeks with no alcohol at all, and see how that goes. Today I was 179lbs, which is considerably better than it could have been, but I've got a way to go yet.

    I wish we could all live in a Goldilocks world where everthing is Just Right.

    I've been a stringbean almost all of my life. Even as a child and teenager, the school nurses kept telling me I had to put on weight.

    Edited to add: When I saw the doctor for the first time after going-low carb to deal with T2D, he said I had lost too much weight. "If you lose any more weight, you will disappear." To which I replied: I am not trying to lose weight, it happened because of the low-carb diet you put me on! He laughed.

    Morning all. So I am experimenting with a “two weeks on, two weeks off” approach to my diet, with the aim of maintaining resting energy expenditure. So following my two weeks of one meal a day, this week I had no calorie restrictions (although I never eat breakfast and didn’t change that).

    Result? An 0.2 kg “gain”. I’ve stayed low carb, but eaten a lot more so happy with that. Same again next week!

    120.40kgs this morning. Fairly stable weight now. I've had halloween treats which are still hanging around.
    I'm happy to settle on this weight til after xmas, then go strict low carb.
    Financies are stopping me buying less stable carbs, which do give me carb cravings (a little).
    However if I get an opportunity to low carb, I will.

    (Will edit to put in my encouraging weight loss to date)
    Started. 144.20kgs (22st 8lb) 2nd Jan '17
    3wks ago.
    119.40kgs (18st 10lb) 20th Oct '17
    Today stable 120.40kgs (18st 13lb) 10th Nov' 17
    Lost.
    24.20kgs=approx 4st.

    Well done to everyone for your weekly efforts. :)

    Started 115.3 kg BMI 39.8 5.4.17
    Today 69.5 kg BMI 24
    Lost 45.8 kg

    So that's 0.8kg down this week - and my total is now over 100 pounds :)

    I would be happy to stay at this weight - though my "official" WW goal is 68kg

    I’ve reached another of my sub-targets this week, 4 stone lost! Down 0.7kg since last Friday :happy:
    Changed my Avatar last night to reflect my thinner face, I’ve put hearts in the background to signify my love for this forum, all the kind people and advice I’ve received that has got me where I am today, lighter and healthier! :)

    Started 115kg 9thMay’17
    Today 89.1kg 10th Nov’17
    Total lost = 25.9kg (4 stone 1lb)

    I am 70KG this morning, which is stable compared to a week ago but one kilo less than my "plateau" over the past six months.

    This downward trend should be a concern as my BMI is now 18.7 and hovering on the edge of "underweight." However, on reflection, BMI is bunk, at least in my case. I consider myself to have been overweight at T2D diagnosis even though my BMI was "only" 21.7 (I had a strange "beer paunch"). We each have our own body type.

    Today's 70KG brings me closer to where I used to be decades ago. For the whole of my 20s and 30s I wasn't much more than 60KG. So I have decided to Stop Worrying About It (unless there is a sudden, unexpected increase).

    I like the new avatar. Well done! Not going to change my avatar ... that is me 42 years ago and I look much the same. Giant nose, long untidy hair (but not grey yet).

    hello! This is an interesting idea. I am close to my target weight and aim to do something similar. Are you finding the restricted weeks hard after the anything-you-like weeks?
    And why 2 weeks? is that easier for you?

    many thanks. Lyn.
