Update on progress

The last update before "Big June" starts with all of its challenges then.

Mileage this week is a new record of 128 miles and my weight is a new low of 18 stones dead with a 2 Ib loss. While 2 Ibs might not seem a lot, to get to 18 stones is a massive psychological positive for me. I seemed to hover around 18 st 2Ib for ages and now to be 1 oz off 17 stones is brilliant. I now need to get rid of 10Ibs to reach the 5 Stones loss mark by June the 30th. Which as we all know is 1 of 2 challenges I have in June. The other is a 100 off road miles. Thanks for that Phill.

The pedal home yesterday was over the Beeches via the QE. It's a shame my Muvi is dead as otherwise I would have 2 scary incidents for you to see. A woman in  a VW Golf passed me that close that I wacked her side window. That woke her up, she obviously didn't know I was there and a bloke in a people carrier turned right across me to get into the QE hospital 300 yards later down the road. I had to swerve into the hospital to avoid him, he just smiled at me and drove off. The life of a commuter eh? Or nearly the death of one.

It's wee weeing down here today, the TV Virgin Box is broken with no engineer due until Monday, seriously thinking about going back to Sky as Virgin have been crap. Great Broadband, shite TV service, this will be our 4th new box in as many months. So it'll be DVDs then.

I'll be off to my Old Rugby Club later to watch the Guinness Premiership Final between Tigers and Saracens as we have no bloody telly here!

Have a good Bank Holiday weekend folks!


  1. Amazing week Clive, very well done. Also well done on the 2lb drop, great going and finally good luck with the big June challenges!

  2. Cheers Matty lad! Are you joining in the 100 miles challenge? I hope so! :-)

  3. I seem to have missed this 100 mile challenge, I know your going for 100 off road, which will be amazing!

  4. Bimble over to Phill's site and sign up, should be a giggle.

  5. Cheers Clive, bimbling that way now! my blog has just been updated too

  6. Well done! Bet you can't wait for the day when there's a 17 on the scales, and it wont be long I'm sure.

    I've been a right piggy with "sympathy food" since modifying my thumb so will need to put some serious effort in!

  7. Congratulations on the weight loss. You really do have two big challenges for June now. We'll be here to support you through it.

  8. Can I join in the bimbling? If so, I'll bimble into the kitchen and sort out something healthy for tonight's dinner, I think.

  9. Thanks all, your comments and support, or piss taking is always welcome! :-)

  10. Great job Clive hitting the weight loss milestones. I'm fighting so hard to get under 230 lbs. and I know exactly how great those intermediate numbers feel.

    Nice pics of the family too!!


  11. Hmmm Well done.....

    How about joining me in the 1000 mile a month challenge :-)

    Problem is I feel obliged to stuff my face afterwards :-)

  12. I'm so proud of you, Clive. Good to see things still moving forward. It's no surprise that so many people are inspired by you. Keep all the good stuff going.
