I have bought a turbo trainer to cycle indoors, but it is such hard work, and very boring.
I finally got out in the real world today, weighing 14-10, which is to be expected. I have not been out on my bike for 12 days until now, it's my birthday tomorrow, then new years eve !
I must try and get a few more rides in, before January !

Monday, 15 December 2014
I weighed myself today, 14-7 that is the best weight I have been in over 10 years, and a good way from the colossal 17-6 at my worse.
I am a bit concerned about the weekend coming up though, me and Angie are both working 7 solid, then we are both off Fri, Sat, and Sun.
There is so much to do, drinks with friends out at the Christmas market fri night, watching our friends who are in a band sat night, then Sunday my works kids Christmas party, then a wedding reception !
I have to cram a bike ride or to in somewhere !!

Well I smashed riding 350 miles in November, still giving it stick,upto 123 already this month. Went totally off the rails Saturday with a lot of family round, so nice though. Weighed myself this morning, showing 14.10.25, so hopefully will be 14.10 or less by Saturday my official weigh in day.

It was a very long day for me, as after the wake I traveled to Glossop for a meal with my brother and his wife, as she was celebrating her 60th.
The day after I managed 13 miles on my bike, another 21 Sunday and another 21 Monday.
I am off for another ride soon, which will smash my 250 miles in November target.
It is also the start of seven days in work for me, so I can track everything I eat and drink, and hopefully get under 15 stones again !

well,I have been cycling a lot,doing challenges with fellow weight watchers on Facebook, spend a lot of time on there.
A very dear friend who introduced me to blogging by reading his died in a terrible accident last week,he had lost loads of weight, so i am going to try even harder now,in his honour
I was doing really well, saw 14 stone 12 a few weeks ago, but then had five days off,and it all went to pot.
Busy weekend coming up,funeral for my friend, 60th meal with my brother and his wife, then a silver wedding 💒 on Saturday, I must stay strong :-)

Yesterday, I dug out the bike my wifes mum gave to her a while ago, blew up the tyres, and asked Angie to join me in my ride today.

The days are drifting into one now, I am on shift eight of twelve, and had to check my watch before, to look what day it is !
Thursday, 10 July 2014
I have dreamed about having a bike like this, and it is really going to get some hammer.
My weight is very stable at the moment, been on full time lates for 10 weeks now, somy eating pattern is very disturbed, and drinking is much reduced.
I am doing a lot of overtime too, today will be my fourth night of Twelve in !
I have my own car too now, a little Peugeot 106, which means I get home from work much quicker than waiting for the taxi bus.
Family is all good, Hannah is due in a few weeks, going for a 4D scan on Saturday morning, can't wait !

Well I weighed myself this morning, 15.13.75, so hoping for a bit less tomorrow.
Just walked four and a half miles with angie, the weather is glorious sunshine at the moment.
We are having a new boiler fitted tomorrow, so I am up early to have a shower, before the water goes off, as I am working tomorrow too, then off for three days, where much exercise will be done :-)
Friday, 16 May 2014
Done a five mile walk today, I have walked further this month than any month before, and we are only half way through it !
planted some fuschia's and petunia's today, hoping to have a nice garden again this summer, not done flowers for a few years now !

Weighed myself Monday morning, had only put a quarter of a pound.
Felt like shit all day yesterday, had a chilli pasty from the pound bakery, then a take out curry for tea, which wasn't very nice, I ate one poppadum, and half a garlic nan, dipped in the curry sauce, i left my curry, didn't like it.
weighed myself this morning, showing 16-2, but knuckling back down now, and just done a four mile walk, to claw some of the damage back!
I am back pointing everything today, and Sunday is a way off, so got time to sort it ( I hope )
Back to work this afternoon, which is easier than being at home !
Sunday, 11 May 2014
We are off to Whitby today, on a works trip, all the food we are taking has been pointed up, but i am looking forward to fish and chips at the seaside !
I presume we will be doing quite a bit of walking, so I will track that too, and try ans claw a few points back !
I had a good scoop Friday night, that gave me 15-12 on the scales, but I am not that fickle to use yesterday's weight in, that would be cheating, but would of made me feel a lot better :-)

Getting plenty of exercise, in and out of the house, working lates it's very easy to get a walk in before work.
I had a bit of a panic attack, I had weighed myself,but then Angie remarked the battery in the scales had gone.
It then became a mission to get a new one, from the local Poundland, I would be lost if my morning ritual of going for a pee then weighing myself was interrupted !
We are off to Whitby Sunday, it is my long weekend, so I am going to allow myself a treat of a few scoops and Fish & Chips, I have never used all my points in the 9 Days so far with WW !
Monday, 5 May 2014
Very long shift today ,decided to take my bus back to the depot for my break, then I can have a hot WW meal, i weighed myself this morning, according to the scales i have lost another 2lbs yesterday !
This is the first bank holiday Angie has been off, and it's weird with me working, but i need to bank these holiday's, for use later on in the year !
Sunday, 4 May 2014
My weigh in this morning gave me six and three quarters of a pound off, I am well chuffed with that, but have been here so many times before, and know here is where the real hard work starts.

Going great, can't wait for my first official weigh in on Sunday,I am off work tomorrow but determined to be good.
I have rescued a baby black bird today,I am hoping it is still alive in the morning, my Mrs wanted me to leave it for the cats, but I couldn't let nature take its course.

Also, this now means I can join a gym, which I would love to do, as my earliest start is 13.45 now, so every morning is free !

Wednesday, 2 April 2014
Already lost 2.5 lbs in one day :-)
Going to walk to work again today, I enjoy the excersise.
The boss has bought me a huge Beef & Black Bean sauce with fried rice from the co op for my meal at work tonight, a whopping big 660 calories in, so must be very careful what I eat today !
Well another month starts, so trying yet again to get my weight down, the wife told me my belly was getting bigger yesterday, which hurt,I weighed myself this morning, and I am still 16.8 which is pretty stable for me, but still hurt!
She is off to a hen night on Saturday, first time ever, and I am so worried she will get that drunk and fall and hurt herself,I hope she doesn't. I have just finished work, hopefully getting on lates permanent soon, that will keep me off the beer :-)

But struggling, everything is in the air, down to 2 kids at home now, so everything is different, food is going moldy, other stuff is affected too, dishwasher and the washing.
The weather has been atrocious, with lots of trees and other damage being caused. Can't wait until it is nicer and I can exercise!
Saturday, 8 February 2014
Angie was run off her feet at home, and by the time I had finished, it was a chippy tea, so I ended up having special fried rice, chips and prawn crackers !
I then washed that down with 3 litres of Cider !
Yesterday was much better, and i finished up 400 calories under.
The weather does not help at all, constant cold rain and very windy.
I am off tomorrow, so will get some exercise in !
Thursday, 6 February 2014
Trying with map my fitness again.
An old friend of mine has promised to try find some pictures of me when I lost all my weight in the early 90s, and beefed up, and was known locally as " Little Arnie "
those days are long gone, but to see myself then would be an inspiration.
Still working, still loving my job, trying to get on the late rota, I love the later shifts.
We are looking forward to another granddaughter, should be arriving in the next few weeks.
Weather is woeful, been rainig for weeks now !
