    Shame about Malta, Ed - I'd wondered about it for September.


    Good amounts paid off the cc though. And a good start to the diet.

    You will :)!

    You have just lost almost half a stone in two days - your body might go into starvation mode (metabolism slow-down to preserve itself) - what diet are you following?

    Of course it is Feed in Tariff (doh!)

    I am not going to miss rain or wind here now - I have three vases full (I mean full) of crimson roses and peonies that were either hanging down off the climber or flat on the ground with the impact of both - poor things, it was an act of mercy to bring them in. However fleetingly, they look fantastic and the roses smell gorgeous

    I suppose diet is somewhere in between low carb high protein and keto. It was intended as a boot up the bum to restart my good habits - I've been feeling a bit stymied of late as weightlifting is preventing me from losing weight despite sticking to a calorie restricted diet! I appreciate that muscle weighs more than fat, but I started weightlifting to lose weight, not keep it the same :D

    Great work on everything in your diary.

    I know you love seeing the scales move but focus on how your clothes fit too / looking in the mirror as that tends to be a better measure when weightlifting is part of your gym regime if you don't want to go about calculating bf%

    Thanks.

    That's exactly what one of my sporty siblings says and there have definitely been improvements in muscle definition/waist etc. 36" shorts that I bought for my last summer holiday were literally falling off this year as I forgot to bring a belt :rotfl:

    I've always had big quads, so it can make trouser buying uniquely frustrating!

    £5.92 paid off credit card, 0.6lbs lost today (7lbs this week).
