well in ZZ, off out to the turbo now baa- edit 1 1/2 hours out on the bike, would have been a shame to pedal in the garage with the moon rising and a star studded velvet sky.
know what you mean kaiser but might just let people go with the measurement they prefer, as long as they keep to the same type going forward.

Nice group of folks now, kind of looking forward to wednesday night scores on the doors, who is going to lose/gain the most weight?

Aye, that and time. And exercise. I was around 17st when I left the US in 2004. It's doable.

Right, just weighed myself for first time in about 2 years, I'm officially a fat bastard. :oops:

5ft 6ins----- 167cms

11st 11lbs-- 75.5kgs

Age 58.5

BMI 26.8, jeez it used to be 21.5.

The thing that scares me is I'm a lazy bam and I need somebody with a cattle-prod to "motivate" me.

I can remember actually deliberately going hungry, when I was serious about climbing, to keep my weight down, although I didn't have a problem back then of putting on weight. OK there was a lot of exercise as well but the fact I could control my eating to that extent just to get better at climbing shows I could self-motivate myself.
The only other time I can remember being over-weight was during the miner's strike, too much home-brew and food, no exercise, I was 11st 10lbs. Lost it all, back down under 10st, in about 3 months when we went back to work.
That's not going to happen now I think. :roll:

I'm aiming to ride more this year, might give myself a target of 500 miles per month, means I wil have to dust off the hybrid bike :shock:

I have made a note of miles on my last 2 new bikes (as per signature) so I'm keen to work on this to see progress.

I use a iPhone app, cyclemeter, that also tells me the combined daily, weekly, monthly miles etc......currently at 81 miles this month....will work on this to encourage myself.
