How's everyone getting on?

I have now lost 6kg since September; body fat down to 19.2% from 24% in the same period. I'm 67.2kg now. Think I'll adjust my target to 66kg.

I also did my first 10k race in stormy conditions last Sunday, and managed a respectable 45:42. I did a 5k in 22:02 during that, too.

So things are going well. I feel like a runner again, and my body is visibly leaner.

Been working to lose weight since January, have lost 11.5kg so far, target is 80kg (I'm 6ft 4 so seems a good place to be) currently at 95.5kg.

Been doing it as a 500 cal deficit traking using Samsung Heath. Started having huel for lunch too which isnt making much for actual loss but means a static 400 cal for lunch and feel way healthy as it has all nutrients and that.

Getting to a point where all my clothes are a but baggy but cant really replace yet as would need to do it all again later.

80kg is real light for 6'4 I'd say

I’ve gone with nhs guidelines and 80 is in the healthy band. Fingers if I get near it and it feels like losing more is a bad idea I’ll stop and switch to maintaining.

80kg isnt light, its pretty 'normal' only gym-heads like us think its light Rocsteady :lol:
although to be fair going from 95 to 80 is quite a big loss so be prepared for it to take some time. also dont aim for 80 if youre actually slimmed down at say ~85. its just a guideline number, nothing else.

I’m under no illusion, 107 to 95 has taken nearly 3 months, I’m going intentionally slow to try and limit loose skin and that

How are you losing it, diet, exercise or both?
