A huge drop!

Another one of those landmark days a HUGE drop in weight,
well from 88.1 kg to 87.5 kg

I have done next to nothing this week by way of exercise , had one ‘fast’ day, perhaps my poor old body needed a rest or perhaps something else is at play?

Whatever and whyever it is I am a happy bunny – even enjoying my porridge after handing over a full on fry up to son for his breakfast! I have my mini fried brekkie at the weekend when I can really savour it. i find that, for me, a ‘treat / cheat’ has to be that something special, time taken to truly enjoy it or there is no point.


The line that really matters is the orange line but the blue line is
pretty exciting at the moment. This is now a November challenge
to see just what is possible over one month.

The confusing thing is that we are now 18 days into a downward continuous
trend so I will post some numbers tomorrow or over the weekend.

So good or bad the 30 day November challenge is on.

This graph shows how the Measured & Smoothed figures vary

M&S - all-time -01-2013-11-01_194054

This is the M & S data plotted since records began


The “smoothed” figure is normally higher than the measured figure – the “maths” keeps a little credit or loss in reserve and drip feeds it into the results over time – assuming there is not a gain. If there is a gain it buffers the gain and uses its reserve to avoid sharp changes,

  1. I think the fasting works (as long as you eat normally the rest of the time). If you are exercising as well bingo! I was reviewing my diary a couple of days ago and I have lost a stone very slowly over the last year through running. I’m planning to try fasting after my half marathon and get a few more pound off over the winter. Although it’s not the main goal it is good to lose a bit of weight ( and it helps us to run better!) congratulations on your weight loss and on having the willpower to save your treats for treat time!

  2. I agree – fasting only works if your body is well nourished and you are confident in its ability. If you are stressed about a fast – you will not see any great benefit – the drop is not fluid loss or it would all be back the next day. Shouldn’t be muscle loss if the running / walking and strength training are in place. Quality rest and hydration are also helpful or again stress will wipe out the potential benefits,
