But anyway, 10 days till wedding, 4lb's to lose........
Well done Iain, that's really good going
For me, the weight loss stalled a bit over the last month as I've been trying different diets and some I was putting weight on! Got one that works for me now and am also getting out walking most evenings which I'm really enjoying and has taken off the weight I put on plus a couple of pounds.

I'm not measuring weight as I don't get on the scales too often to keep track, so instead I've decided to measure by size.
I started my new job a waist size 54 (yes you are reading that correctly), after nearly 2 months in my job, I am pleased to say its down to 46/47.
I do know my starting weight and current weight also, they were 163kgs starting weight and 141.6kgs now. It's an average of 11kgs a month / 1.1kg every 3 days.

Nobody has been in this thread for a while so I thought I'd pop in and say I ran my first organised 10K today - what a bitch it was as well. It was stupidly warm (yes I know it's been raining). I came 99th (out of 104) - The majority of the runners were club runners so I was out of my league.
Still- onwards and upwards. Not my fastest 10K and i'm a little let down by myself - but it was very hilly.
Thanks guys. My mother just told me off for being so self-depreciating (is that even a saying?).
Swansea 10k in September. I'm chuffed really with the running but cannot loose weight at all. Putting 14.5 stone around a 10k cannot be good. I need to loose more weight!
How is everyone else getting along?
To go along with gareth and update this myself...I have dropped a further 6gs...it went slowly as I sprained my ankle and had a microfracture on a metatarsal so was restricted to light duties...now I am at 135kgs...total weight loss so far is 28kgs (4stone nearly). Waist size is now 44/45 (depends on clothes maker). It is slowly coming off and I am happy.
Gareth massive well done to you mate

As for weight loss though - I'm afraid that your body gets used to the running if you don't vary it. Can I suggest you look at interval training? This is supposed to be the best way to lose weight etc. And of course muscle is heavier than fat so you probably have lost weight anyway.
See: Interval Training Workout Routines - How to Design Interval Training Workout Routines
Basically you warm up and then alternate very fast and slower running.
and @nephilim - well done!

Mrs Dook and I stopped fretting about it all and have lapsed a fair bit, putting on some weight. We have started again but have decided not to go for a weekly weigh in because those sort of groups are just not for us. Even updating things on Facebook can end up being too pressured.
The secret for us is to relax, be sensible and crack on with it.
We have a big lifestyle coming up anyway and that is taking priority.
Well done to those who have been sticking with it all ... you are a source of inspiration.

Like Mr & Mrs Dook... I've lapsed a bit, but am still nowhere near the weight I started at
Regular exercise and avoiding snacking have been the key for me!
I always like my portions of a size I can manage without over stretching myself, I always like to fulfil my needs and that of others with a portion that suits that persons requirements don't you think?
