117kg :)

Down to 117 kg dead today. Happy days!
The first magic figure will be 115.5kg. This will be the first stone lost. Looking forward to that day! Maybe treat myself to a massive domino's pizza? ;)

Ow!

As part of the metapredict study I'm doing at the University I had a fat biopsy taken today.
I thought they'd just stick me with a needle and suck some out.

Nope, they wiggle that needle around for about 10 minutes and some teeny tiny little amount comes out.

I don't think they are wrong when they say there will be some bruising!

Back to the diet

So, the diet went completely out of the window whilst I was away at Cisco Live. I always knew it would but I wasn't prepared to go straight back to my start weight :(
Back to the diet grindstone then.
It feels tougher now though. Really got to work at it right now.
In other news I've been accepted onto the metapredict study here at Loughborough into obesity, diabetes and the effect of high intensity training. I had a load of tests that basically showed no undue health problems (phew) so I am good to go.
I'm currently wearing an activity and heart monitor for a week so they can see just how lazy and unfit I am. Then they do a load more tests (some a little invasive) and ten in a couple of weeks the training starts for 6 weeks.
I've not really volunteered for this for weight loss, it's more about getting my health checked and starting to get see to exercise again.
When the study finishes in a few months I will join a gym.
Well, that's the plan...
