Scale says 215lbs again. Another week with no loss ... and thankfully no gain either.

Bicycle race both Saturday and Sunday. Saturday had mid-race mechanical issues but still managed to finish. Fixed on Saturday night and different story on Sunday, 5th place finish. Couple of my racing buddies complemented my weight loss and improved cardio conditioning. Racing is so much better when I can hang and battle with the faster group. Havenít had this feeling in a few years.

199, the last six weeks have been good so far. Still a long way to get down to my target but I've got milestones at 195 (what I was bouncing around when my wife and I started dating), 185 (what I was hovering around at for the 5 years before that), and 172 (the weight i was at 18 years ago when I looked at a photo of myself and was horrified and started a serious gym commitment again to make up for no longer walking around NYC everyday and spending many hours a week out dancing). I figure at 172 I can evaluate if I need to keep losing weight, or if the years of eating+lifting mean my in shape weight is higher... Still a very long way to go to get to the 142.5 weight I was when I was at 17 years ago when I hit my best shape of my adult life, but the progress of the last six weeks has been very motivating.

173.3, down 0.5 lbs. Iím actually at a good weight now, but want to get down a few more pounds in case I gain weight from Thanksgiving through New Year. Iím worried about regaining weight, which Iíve done before. Anyone have any tips on how to transition from losing weight to maintaining weight?

214. Down a tiny bit. I lost 10lbs the week of my neck surgery, but quickly gained 6 back. Still, I'm happy. Down 21 for the year and 81 since I started MyFitnessPal a couple of years ago. Only 9 more pounds to get out of the obese category.

170.3 lbs, down 3 lbs since Wed. Weighing in early this week since Iím supposed to have surgery in a couple of days. Wonít be able to exercise for a while, so reaching 168 by Thanksgiving is starting to look pretty iffy.

Still sitting at 213 lbs. No loss or gain this week.

On the positive side, fitness continues to improve. Just back from a 7 mile / 1 hour road run. Havenít been on that pace in many years.

Cheers to my weight losing fellow retirees. Hope your week is awesome.

170.8, up 0.5 lbs in 10 days. Ate normal meals for three days getting ready for surgery, but then it was postponed. Oh well, back to the weight loss grindstone.

Stalled at 213 lbs.

Cyclocross bicycle race this Saturday. Unfortunately with Covid no mid-race beer or licorice hand ups from spectators (AKA Hecklers). Goal for this weeks race is to finish in the top ten. If I stay rubber side down thatís a realistic objective for slimmer and fitter me. Will report back next Wednesday and perhaps a photo or two if I can figure out how to upload.

Itís not Wednesday, but Iím posting early because I will have surgery tomorrow. 168.4, down 2.4 lbs since last Wed. A smidge over my goal of 168 by Thanksgiving. Pretty satisfied with that.

Had a great cyclocross bicycle race on Saturday. Took third place in my class of twenty 50 year old racers. Had an OMG moment at the start when I realized I was third into the first corner. Defended that position for the entire race. Couldnít close the 30 second gap on the first two guys though. Heart rate was maxed and lungs working at capacity. Diet and daily workouts are paying off. Has been a few years since I landed on the podium.

Current weight is 210 lbs, down 3 lbs from previous weeks and 40 lbs since May 1. BMI charts .... if you subscribe to those things ... no longer puts me in the obese category. Now just ďoverweightĒ.

Not Wednesday, but when I weighed in this morning I was at 167.8, which made my goal of 168 by Thanksgiving! No more trying to lose weight, but transitioning to trying to maintain.

Wish you all a happy and safe Thanksgiving.

No loss this week. Still at 210 lbs.

Registered for double header bicycle race next weekend. However with all the bad news about the pandemic, chances of the race actually happening are 50:50 at best.
