Weekly Update - Wed, May 20th:
wednesday-weight-club-screen-shot-2015-05-23-10.35.55.png

Busy week in the WWC this week - We welcome back Outdoorchick and Nicnac - GREAT to see you both again!

Great results above: No '+'s at all this week and going back to last week we had 2 milestones that should have been recognised - Patch and VaneKoS both crossed down a round stone!
WELL DONE!

Loser of the week this week was shared 2 ways between yours truly and VaneKoS...(You're really on a mission V!) - both with a -2 score.

Enjoy the long weekend over there this weekend - we're off next weekend on this side of the pond
Live The Dream!

When I started work I was fit, light. My job as a salesman in the 80s involved a lot of driving and a lot of lunches!

It was after the holiday which that picture was taken on that I decided to draw a line. I spent the whole time just knackered and didn't get to enjoy the time with my grandkids the way I should have.

Running gives me a focus, and making sure I am signed up for races keeps me on the straight and narrow.

Great post, but you definitely deserve praise for the weight loss.

You recognised why you got into that state but, more importantly, did something about it.

So many people won't face up to fixing the problem unless it's an instant fix solution.

No change for me...did lots of exercise, but unfortunately one party, two work's lunches and the in-laws visiting made up for it.

And Colin, that is an amazing transformation. You look great and a lot younger, too, if I may say so.

Lots of great numbers up there today, leading the way with a loss of 4lbs makes NicNac our loser of the week.

Others (me) not playing with the team this week, sorry all! Will be better next week!
keeptrying missed a post this week so I've given a no-change weight...can update next week...
Live the Dream!
