I weighed myself today and am just 1lb heavier than the lightest I have been in 2013. I thought that was pretty good going, especially since my excercise has been limited by an inflamed tendon that won't ease up.
Based on Christmas 2011 and 2012, I gain 5lbs between December 1st and January 1st, and normally lose 3 of those before January 15th. I normally have a very slack December where I don't ride the bike much - this year I am going to make a special effort as I want to hit the 2000 mile mark for the year (currently 160 away with 18 days remaining - shouldn't be a problem really)
I am feeling positive and I hope that in 2014 I will finally get to 12 stone XX pounds.
How are all of the rest of you getting on - I know that those in America have had thanksgiving recently, so that may have knocked you back a bit, but are many of you at a personal lowest weight of the year?
