Quite the range of results.  I’m going to claim extra-ordinary circumstances as my post-op meds needed to be taken “with food”, and were timed in between meals.  So much for surgery being an advantage in the Blubbergeddon race, right?  (yeah… yeah… I know, I take responsibility for the result).

So, as a team we lost 15.1 kgs during week one.  That’s phenomenal.

bbw1Biggest loser for Week 1 was Lofty with 2.6 kg melted away.  And as it is Week 1, Lofty also takes out the percentage loss at 2.23%.  Awesome!

Congratulations everyone!  I like to see the stragglers (includes me!) lift their game just a little, and I do hope that those that lost 2+kgs are doing it in a healthy way.

I realise that by now most Blubbergeddonites will have settled on a method for weight loss, but our fearless leader is quite fond of the Paleo Diet.  There is an entertaining introduction to it here.  I may not follow it, but I do believe there is a lot of sense behind it.  Plus, it works.


Now.  Next week.

Next week is Queens Birthday weekend, and I, like some of you, will be making sure that they aren’t at home doing things like reading Whaleoil and being within weighing distance of  a set of scales.  More importantly, I will be heading for the hills for four days, so the weekly BLUBBERGEDDON post is  most likely going to be published a day or two later.

Please, still send in your weigh-in results on the Saturday – I’ll catch up with them as soon as I can.

Also, some of you are writing some nice narratives when you send me your result.  I wonder if you could be so kind to add “OK for publication” to it, if you don’t mind me sharing it with the rest of the world.  Some of the stories are either inspirational or funny, and it’s a pity they are going to waste.
