July 2016 Round-up

Well, that’s another month drifting off, so it must be time for this old thing


More movement in a downward direction…

July 1: 221.6 pounds (15 stone 11.6 pounds, 100.5 kg)
July 31: 215.3 pounds (15 stone 5.3 pounds, 97.7 kg)

That’s a quite significant drop of 6.3 pounds (2.9kg), which is not bad at all.


Well, now the progress is being made, I can reveal my Cunning Plan: eat a wee bit less, and no wine during the week. Seems to be working…


I’ve managed some more weekend photographic expeditions, some of which have involved a fair bit of walking. Just need to get back into getting out of the office at lunchtime…


It’s been a moderately quiet month, with this report bringing the total to 41.


Hmmm, went to the air show, been out and about a bit, had fun with my 2x teleconverter.
