i'm up 1.5kg from 69.  Need to drop from 70.5 down to 66.5.  F---U---C---K!


Good thing is that i won't be racing for a long, long time, and last time when all i did was base, i went from 158 to 151 pretty easily.  Hell, i'd be happy at 67.5kg

After my first peak I intentionally rebounded up to ~146lbs during my midseason break. After about a month back on my diet I'm starting to lose weight again. The past few days I've had readings at ~144-145lbs. Hopefully I'll nail it and be down below 142lbs for Cascade.

Been staying at mine.  My wife has been on a pretty crazy diet recently and that's made it a lot easier for me.

My weight has creeped up a bit.  I didn't bring enough water on last nights 80 miler.  I was 6lbs lighter then my morning weigh-in. 


The lesson? If you are slipping and feeling fat, just go dehydrate yourself.

Also helps the leg veins look more impressive.

I was finally starting to slip close to my end-of-last-fall race weight, then spent all memorial day weekend boozing and eating like crap instead of workout out.  Amazing how quick you can erase a month's worth of weight loss.

I am maybe finally getting closer to not giving a **** about 1.5kg.  :o


Maybe. 168 is like, unbearable for me to maintain. I think about food all day. I am painfully hungry (in my mind) all the time.


171 is "OK, have that but not 5 of that" and totally doable.

Stick to 171.

I fluctuate between 138 and 142 and I'm fine with that. When I feel fat, I am on the high end. When I'm dizzy after standing, I'm on the low end.

Stepped on my scale half heartedly this evening to see how much i weigh.  To my surprise, it read 68.5kg!  I'm definitely over 4w/kg now.  Now just 2 more kilos and i'll be set as far as weight is concerned.

not even going to weigh myself anytime soon, lol. my weight really creeped up after the collegiate season ended and exam stress set in.


my goal at this point is just to eat well, eat controlled portions and ride a lot, with the hope that my weight will come down a bit. with only 6 weeks to get ready for my goal race, I only have time to take care of my fitness, and make weight the 2nd priority.


congrats on getting to 4w/kg echappist, I know that's been a goal of yours for a while.
You can be the strongest guy in the field but if you don't know how to use it, when to use it, and have the b*lls to use it at the right time, you'll lose.

I'm 10lbs over what my weight would normally be this time of the year and my BF is 4% up.  My goal is to lower the BF by 2% and lose 4-5lbs by July 30.

thanks Mikey.  I was surprised at how quickly it all came down after i put my mind to it.  Having a powertap to tell you consumption helps.  Riding helps, and tracking using the Lose It app helps, too.

Btw, you are living at home, right?  Maybe you could lessen the burden of your mom by cooking her dinner a few times a week.  You'll get to pick the ingredients and amount of oil to use, know how much you are nom nom noming down, and learn a few dishes to impress girls back at school.

In my experience, it takes a good two to three weeks for the weight to begin to come off, and it's easy to say eff it during the first week.  Doing base and not much top end stuff also helps.

I'm really lucky in the sense that my mom is also super health conscious (although she is having a hart time losing weight, I really feel bad for her), and cooks with olive oil, whole wheat pasta, mostly chicken for meat, etc., etc. but...just for the sake of being a nice son I should try and cook dinner. i can make a mean chicken quesadilla, that's about it.

Get a cookbook (or teh interwebs) and practice.  Cooking is easier than working on bikes.

You're lucky, I'm trying to get my parents to turn health conscious but it's so damn hard to change decades of bad habits...
it's getting better but nothing close to what I would love to.

I at least managed to get them to cook lesser junk food and such and we do not get food from fast food place anymore which definitely helped.



But sometimes they just get angry at me because I don't want to eat some stuff that I find unhealthy and if I want them to shut up I just eat it...

Oh and at these times, even if I tell them I'm going to cook myself something I'm going to get yelled at for cooking when they ordered some crap  :facepalm:
Challenge it because it is unreachable.

Got one word for you:  risotto.  Girls effing love it b/c you home-made something "exotic."  However, you do need someone to buy you some really dry white wine.

I make three versions of risotto:  a green stuff that only I eat but has a lot of veggie and protein, a vegetarian red risotto with tomatoes (sun-dried and grape) and asparagus, and a clam risotto with mushroom.  The latter two i wouldn't consider very healthy, but the first one is a 6 times/week staple of my diet, and i don't get tired of it.
