  1. Well done. Any tips you've found helpful? I'm trying desperately to find the motivation but in my current situation it's hard to just get through the day.

  2. Great Work. It is amazing how much better you feel when you are eating healthier. I battle the bulge too.

  3. Well done John, when you get into a pattern it becomes slightly easier. Don't go too far!

  6. Well, at least I can fart without bending over. The latter is getting too difficult anyway. Yesterday in Waitrose I dropped a packet of Patna rice onto the floor and rather than simply pick it up had to get down on my hands and knees - khaki-shorted arse in air - then hoist myself up again using the shelves as leverage. What a sight! Though at least it was accomplished WITHOUT farting - I think.

    1. So sorry ... but I had to laugh at this ... not in a mean way, however, I could just picture it all!! You are lucky if you didn't fart after all that!

    2. Yes, it was funny, Marcia - though for me only in hindsight. When JayGee gets to my present age in 15 years' time he'll know how it feels. :-)

      Even at age 80, my sweet MIL could easily get down on the floor. As she said, "Getting up isn't pretty, but given time and something to hang on to, I can do it!"

      Hugs!

    4. Raybeard ... I will be 78 next month, farting is just part of life and, if we are lucky, they smell like roses! LOL I have 2 replaced knees, so I can't even get down on them. I would have to have help getting back up!

    5. I'd never have guessed, Marcia, but now I know what well could be in store for me too just round the corner. [Gulp].

      And hugs to you too, Barbara Anne. 'Ta' for your visit.

  16. That's very well done..gives me a good example to follow! (Only 3 kg down so far here)
    It does make getting up hills easier too, cycling or walking!!

    Go for it, John! It is the smallest most significant victories, the sort no-one ve r tells you about, that make all the differencd. And most of all let the inner you know the difference. Well done.

  18. good for you, that's great progress xx

  19. I can't imagine you not farting.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I always thought that old age brought on uncontrolled farting. Maybe you will go back to it.

    1. I never really left it…pressure farts have been succeeded by 24/7 farts…..a product of eating a stir fry daily

  21. Excellent progress!

  22. I so badly need to lose some poundage! Good for you!

  25. Well done chuck. It takes determination and self control and you clearly have that.

  26. You will soon be a slip of a thing John-but be careful your loose trousers don't surprise you and slip to your ankles univitedly x

  28. Had to look it up ... 8.3kg = 18.2983677613lbs! I never did know and still don't know the metrics ... thank goodness for Google and the Web!
    OMG ... just shy of 20 lbs off ... CONGRATULATIONS!!! 🎈🎉
    It's true ... the older we get, the more difficult it is to drop the weight, unless you are sick and on the way out of living altogether!!! And, we sure don't want that!!!

  29. Good on you! In more ways than one.

  30. That is great. As long as you are feeling good and eating healthy, that is what matters most.

    2. Rude! Keep your opinions to yourself anonymous.

    3. You Are ridiculous-I'm quite sure no one here is interested in your twaddle troll-so just Go away

  34. Go go go! 14lbs down here :-)

  35. An achievement. That's going on 20 lbs for those of us who disdain kg's. That's two clothing sizes, or one front pull.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Awesome! - good on you John😃

    ReplyDelete
  37. Wow! I won't ask what the time period of your weight loss is but that's a great result. And I think you'd appreciate it much more if, like Joanne above, you used lbs rather than kgs. Congratulations!

  38. Well done John. My downfall in the summer here in Canada 🇨🇦is having an ice cream cone often. I have put o 15 pounds of Covid weight.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Well done John !! It's getting beyond 5lbs without
    giving up is hard because no one notices 5 lbs but going on 20lbs everyone tends to cheer you on still do it for yourself not someone else.

  40. Fabulous effort, well done you. Bet you are chuffed.
