It is disheartening Rob. Remember that calorie counts on food are pretty ball park so if you are jsut hitting the deficit to drop .5kg a week a little bit of mis-measuring can mean that you are not hitting the deficit you think you are. 

Hang in there you will get to where you want.

Was aiming for 0.9KG per week, and mostly hitting the deficit goal (sometimes under and sometimes a little over, basically a 1000 under by Fitbit tracking. less by MyFitnessPal).

Keep up the good work Rob, remember that every little bit counts and will all add to your long term goal it may just take a little longer than you would like.

I seem to have stumbled recently as I'm drinking a can of cola a day (for the last 3-4 days, skipped one day) and today I have quite incredible sugar cravings. Already over budget on Sugar today and staring at a cola can and kitkat on the table right in front of me.

If it wasn't teeming with rain and I didn't have my bike trailer with me (I'm in pool cafe while son is at Football training) I'd go out for a walk to see if that distracted me.

Rob it is far from easy. I know how you feel. Hang in there and everyday is a new day. If you stumble, get up and carry on. Best wishes.

Down 1.1kg (or 1.5kg)

Total Lost so far: 3.7kg (started 87.6)


2013/09/04 -- 83.9kg -- -1.1kg
2013/08/28 -- 85.0kg -- -0.2kg


Thanks Den and also Cookie. Since posting the weight has dropped off the last couple of days.

As to the down 1.1 or 1.5, well when I weighed myself this am (6:30am) I was 83.9, however when I got back from taking Mareike to school & going for a walk I was down to 83.5. Wasn't sure which to go with as other days my weight has been the same pre-post walk in the morning.

Really really want this to keep going at that rate so that come October 10th (my wedding anniversary) I'm down to 80kg. Unlikely but I'm hopeful :)

Rob, Muscle weighs more than fat., so you could be losing fat, and getting fitter, and putting on muscle. ;D

Me I am the same, but my walking is helping. :)

Quite possible Obbie, I haven't really been tracking body fat. I have to use a different scales to do so, which my wife doesn't want out for the kids to use, so it tends to live in its box. When I did it the other week I had 27.7% body fat

Total Lost so far: 4.2kg (started 87.6)


2013/09/11 -- 83.2kg -- -0.7kg
2013/09/04 -- 83.9kg -- -1.1kg


Surprised I went down at all this week, I actually spent most days (i.e 5-10) flitting around 83.9-84.1 and then suddenly yesterday and today I was 83.2. Go figure. According to Trendweight / Hackers Diet websites, my trend weight is actually 84.2 at the moment.

Total Lost so far: 4.6kg (started 87.6)


2013/09/18 -- 83.0kg -- -0.2kg
2013/09/11 -- 83.2kg -- -0.7kg


A week of flitting between 82.9 and 83.1, I'd probably have been a little lower today had I not gone to bed at 1:30am and only got 5 hours sleep. Still, annoying considering the 1k calorie deficit. Though TrendWeight.com & HackersDiet calculate my deficit, based on weight, as only -600 to -700

TrendWeight.com says 83.7kg & HackersDiet says 83.6. Both plot your weight with a form of weighted running average.

Cheers everyone. I've slip a little the last few days where I was eating more calories than my 1k deficit.

Also been drinking coke over the last half of the week and multiple on a couple of days :/ So far just water today.

Everyone falls off the wagon sometime. As long as you get back on that is all that matters.  ;)
