First half of last year I lost a load of weight. I'd come back from a trip to Australia having regained almost a third of what I'd been working hard to lose. On December 28th 2020 I was at 138kg. On May 30th 2021, just before another trip to Oz, I was down at 113.5kg.... Continue Reading →
Sweet 17 (stone) and as close as can be to other milestones #delardification
My first 12 lap yomp in three weeks. Two weeks ago my faithful backpack disintegrated on lap one, and I didn't get a replacement for a few days. Then, out of - idleness? the seduction of failure? - something, I didn't do 12 laps last Sunday. Today, I knew I had to get back on... Continue Reading →
I don’t need this pressure Ron… #delardification
Count your blessings, obviously (I've lived a life of undeserved privilege and luck. That can change, obvs we all live under a sword of Damocles) but being grateful for what you've got, and trying to contribute meaningfully are apparently solid ways not to be a miserable douche. This particular maundering comes from the fact that... Continue Reading →
Whoop! Whoop! I am OVERWEIGHT!!
I stepped (staggered, actually) onto the scales an hour ago. 115.2kg blinked up at me. "Fry up!" I peremptorily bellowed to (feebly whispered in the direction of) The Wife, who has been her usual amazing supportive self throughout this delardification effort. When I crawl in the door, dehydrated and incoherent, there's a pint glass of... Continue Reading →

Past the (or this) plateau! #delardification
Another week, another blog post about what has (and has not) been achieved in Operation Delardification. For those new - in October 2019 I got on the talking scales and they said "one at a time please." I was 20kgs heavier than I would have guessed - i.e. 150kg. Sure, can blame "obesogenic" environments,and go... Continue Reading →
Weight loss plateau and (not) breaking on through to the other side…
On 28th March I got down to 119 kilos flat (massively dehydrated) and had a fry-up, which I blogged, obvs. And I promised myself I would blog weekly on the weight loss. Oops. I didn't blog last week, and since then I have only got under 120kg twice (so maybe it was an artefact?) HOWEVER,... Continue Reading →
De-lardification. Milestone: 20 percent of my initial body weight gone… more to come?
Well, the fry-up was bloody fantastic. Here's a pic. This was my reward for getting under 120kg. There's a few milestones in that. One is having lost 30kg - 20 per cent of my initial body weight (150kg in October 2019, which meant I was morbidly obese). Apparently losing 20% of your body weight is... Continue Reading →
