Might have dropped a Boo Boo

The wife & I joined 2 weeks ago and it didn't cross my mind (being a bloke) what I was wearing. Size 11 shoes, jeans with leather belt (44") lined zip up cardy, and pockets full of change, wallet, and a phone that weighs half a pound,
and a few ancillary items that I'm not discussing on here.
With this lot on I tipped the scales at 17-2 for my start weight.
Last week I tried to dress exactly the same, right down to the 8.79 in small change, and had lost 5.5 lbs. Tomorrow is weigh in number two. I don't want to cheat, but this could get complicated.
The other girls will soon be saying, "here comes the old boy with only one jumper."

Believe me they won't! In my group everyone wears virtually the same outfit each week, and you'll soon notice that with your group.
It's usually advised that you should weigh in the same/similar clothes you wear on your first WI to get a more accurate reading.


You can always change what you wear for WI, but if you change your outfit somehow one week, make sure you stick with that for the weeks afterwards
Just don't go wearing anything extra or heavier

I always wear exactly the same thing when I weigh-in at Boots every Monday morning just to be as accurate as possible

The only option would be a Duffle coat and divers boots.

:Rofl: haha!


I know it sounds daft, but I've seen people come in wearing an extra layer and then get annoyed when the scales say they've gained... I've done it before, weighed, gained and the half an hour later realised it's because I'm wearing jeans when I usually weigh in leggings

I'm going to have a banana to celebrate.

Very well done to both of you!
I do hope that your wife is aware that blokes lose weight much quicker than lasses .. as a rule .. so hopefully she won't get too upset when it happens ..as happen it is bound to!
