A whole week of sub-72kg weights now. On to 70kg!

And three days of sub-71kg measurements. I just need to keep this up for another couple of months and I'll be at my target weight and can work on keeping to a weight rather than losing weight.

(I'm aiming at between 65kg and 70kg (closer to 70kg), which for me is BMI of 20-22 or so.)

I've just had a read back over my posts here for the past three years. I seem to have been cycling between 72kg and 75kg or so. Not good! It does seem to be the Christmas Holidays that are my big downfall, so this year I resolve to show a little bit more restraint.

I don't think I've recorded sub-71kg weights before now though, so perhaps I'll be able to get to my target weight and stay there this time.

Are you only using BMI or are you tracking body fat percentage too? I only ask because I've heard that highly trained athletes can show as obese in BMI.

Yes, muscle is dense and if you're heavily muscled you will have a high BMI. But I'm not a highly trained athlete.

BMI is only a very rough guide, of course, and shouldn't be used as the only measure. One could have a BMI in the 'good' range of 20-25 and be malnourished from a variety of reasons.

But I think I'm doing things OK. I don't obsess over food, and my weight has been in the 72-76kg range for the past four years or so (and I don't think I've ever been above 80kg or below about 67kg since I stopped getting taller.)

The lightest I've been was 70kg. The heaviest, 102kg. Last time I checked I was 89kg. I intend to exercise, but it's such a lonely activity.

I was shocked when I got on the scale and it had me at 160, I thought I had been gaining weight. I tend to fluctuate between 160 and 165. I am going to try a new gym in my area in September. It has a 30 day for $30 program and you can work with a trainer during that entire 30 days. I really need to kick start my workouts and am bored at the Y. Hopefully I will pick up some new exercises and get myself motivated again.

Does it make sense if I lose weight so that I can gain weight? I feel like I have to lose a couple more kg in time for Christmas so that I can binge on all those cakes and snacks when Christmas (and then New Year, Valentine Day and Lunar New Year) roll about and not feel too bad when I gained weight because of all those non-stop eating (sorry resistance is futile for me)...

Not a problem. You've still got 120 days before the big day!

Meanwhile, I've been putting on weight so I can lose weight. I've been putting on muscle mass on my thighs and shoulders, but losing size around my waist. Once I was able to get back to an active sport I really love, getting back in shape became much easier.

That is how I think too. I want to lost 5 kg before the festival of "Diwali" that my family celebrates.

Rofl, I think maintaining the diet and activity is harder than actually taking the first step with all these temptations around, especially if you have a sweet tooth and a weak willpower like me. All those expiring snacks at home are not helping as I feel like I need to help finish them so that they don't go to waste. No more spree buying anymore for me. Lesson learned! I need to lose some weight before Christmas, even 1 or 2kg is good enough considering I don't exercise much. I need to find an active sport I really like. Good luck to everyone in losing weight!

Today I had my first sub-70kg measurement! I expect it'll be a few more weeks before I'm regularly below 70kg, but it does seem that this time I'm going to get to my target weight. Now to make sure I stay there!

I'm still on this wheat-free diet (it's not a "diet", really, more a change of eating habits, as it is a permanent lifestyle change, and I don't calorie count or avoid anything else).

Although progress is slow, I have now lost 12 pounds (5.5Kg) and am currently 180 pounds (81Kg), exactly halfway to my target weight of 168 pounds (76Kg).
