I've weighed under 90kg for 4 days in a row, though the weighted average hasn't quite caught up, it seems pretty likely that it will soon. I've officially lost 30kg in a little over 2 years. That's the equivalent of 15 2 liter bottles I was carrying around. My 21" monitor is 27.5 kg, I think in the box it would probably be 30kg. Though I remember having trouble trying to carry it, I don't really notice that I've stopped carrying around an equivalent amount of weight.

Just wanted to give a quick humble bow, as you caught my journal-reading eye and all.

And a 'bully on!' for the weight loss. I assume with the weighted average, you're another Hacker's Diet type (weight loss through recreational mathematics). I lost 25+ kilos in the last couple years, of which 10 have returned rather recently (too cold for serious cycling, hoping spring springs soon). But, thanks to the spreadsheet, I'm fully aware of this fact, which I would sadly not have been otherwise.

I'm following the weight monitoring portion of the hackers diet, but I've been too lazy to actually track my caloric intake. (or was it too much of a perfectionist, as my vision of how to track ones caloric intake frequently involves digital scales and bar code readers)

What helped me to lose weight was noticing what things caused my weight to spike up and to stop eating them. For instance I noticed every time that I drank root beer my weight the next day had climbed, so I cut that out.

Also I moved toward eating a home cooked vegan diet. I think that helped as most of that food has a low caloric density, so I felt full but didn't consume too many calories.

Wozers, that's 25% of your body weight that you're dropped!

i feel like i oughtn't say how much i've lost

I usually think of extra weight as the number of cats I am/was carrying around. :)
