  • Hi Bunblebeaz,

    Good luck with your goals - I like the way you've put your fitness measurement, as it's a good way to assess how you're doing. You're relatively close to your fitness goal already - shouldn't be long!

    Hope you have a great week.

    Lowcal :-)

  • Thanks! I speed the treadmill up gradually, it'll take a couple of weeks, and then I can readjust my goal. Ultimately I'm aiming for forces fitness which for my age group is 1.5 miles in 13 min 50 sec

  • Hi bundlebeaz,

    Best laid plans of mice and men, eh?

    And you're still riding the weight loss bus - such commitment, well done indeed.

    Actually, I've found maintaining my healthy weight (at the top of the healthy range) quite achievable. Though I do keep a close eye on it as I have no intention whatsover of going back to the weight I was, or of getting back into my former daft and unhealthly eating habits.

    Good luck with your ongoing weight loss efforts.

  • Lol Doikosp I am just clearing out my last few larger clothes I have no intention to returning to my old size - always in the past I have hung on BUT NO MORE! so if I put weight on I shall be running round naked! Bunble I admire your goal mine is just to get to 25!

  • haha, nice one ;p

  • Thank you! after having 6 weeks off I thought I'd have put on more than I did, so am happy. For me it'd be too easy to let crap food sneak back in as soon as I hit bmi25 and then I'd be overweight again, plus the weight I'd like to be puts me somewhere around the middle of the normal sector.
