Centenary post / weight update and Comment Competition

This, believe it or not is my 100th post!

So in celebration, a few FatBlokeThin Statistics and a couple of competitions...

So, where are we now? The tale of the tape!

Number of Days since weight loss journey began - 90 days

Starting BMI - 38.7

Current BMI - 34.7

Starting weight 270.0

Current weight - 241.8

Weight loss - 28.2

%AGE weight loss - 10.4%

Lbs to lose to reach 1st target - 41.8


General weight update.

Weight - 241.8 (-28.2)
- 40 minute walk at lunchtime yesterday (during a fast - are you MAD?!)

The fast is going REALLY well. Yesterday was DAY1 and fluids only - I had the usual problems (excessive peeing, joint pain, interrupted sleep etc) but I kept focussed and woke up today feeling fresh and NOT remotely hungry.

I have eaten fresh fruit today with loads of fluids and will have vegetables and salad tonight.

The fast brought on a massive (for me) single day weight loss since yesterday - around 5lbs! Just think what it could have been if I hadn't ate like an idiot over the weekend - anyway, don't look back and it was mostly water anyway!


And now, my latest adventure in Link Love (as Shelly would call it) - over at This Eclectic life, she is both promoting a competion and holding her own. They are both 'refer-a-comment competitions' (no I had no idea what she was taking about either...).

Basically, follow the links below and leave a comment on the post using my URL as a referral (i.e. http://fatblokethin.co.uk/).

The winner is the person with the most referrals (not me as it helps to have a readership...lol!).

Finally, create a post linking to this one on your blog (just like this one) using the links to both the competition posts and hey-prosto, your in the game!

Does this make ANY more sense to you than it did to me?

Anyway, here are the links to follow :-



Best of luck!!

I'm trying to figure out this comments contest myself! Now that I've had an adequate supply of caffeine, I am going to re-visit Shelly's post and see if I can figure out what to do!

I tagged you on my blog for a "Moaning Meme". If you want to give it a try, that would be great! If not, not a problem! I'm just curious to see what you would write :)

I figured you'd play along or I wouldn't have tagged ya :)...sometimes, though, I get tagged for things I don't really want to play and then I feel obligated. I just didn't want you to feel obligated, that's all!!!

I'm glad you're going to do it! Rant AWAY!!!!

YAY! Someone who fasts! I got sooo much crap for fasting, you wouldn't believe how happy I am to find someone else who fasts.

Awesome blog. :)

Congrats on the weight loss. We're at about the same weight right now.

What a wonderful job you are doing, both losing weight and blogging. I gotta tell ya though, the comment contest is beyond my ADD mind. ;-) My eyes just kinda glaze over. :-) Oh Look, a chicken!
