How Can I Test The Accuracy Of My Treadmill ?

Neil why not ditch the treadmill and go for a good, long walk instead that's free then chalk also measurements as such wont matter. Take the family possibly.

That's a great idea Rosalind and we all do go for walks and I supplement my time on the treadmill with cycling too.

But, when it's snowing or raining, or 3am for instance..it's so much easier to jump on the treadmill. I get a recording of how far I have gone (yesterday for example I did 8.1 miles...and I average about 5mph...I do fast walking and there's no way my family would be able to keep up !....This determination to lose weight and regain the use of 75% of the clothes in my wardrobe is unfailing. In May (when I had a full health check MOT)..I was 16 stone 11lbs ( that's 235lbs or 107kg)

..TODAY !!..I am 13 stone 2lbs (184lbs or 83.5kgs)....my target weight is 11 stone..and you know what ?...I AM going to do it too....and you know what else ?..I am going to maintain that weight off too !

Never been so focused about anything before in my life !

YAYYYYYYYYYYYYY !!!!

So, yes, I do go walking...but I need the treadmill to calculate/guage/test myself and for covenience when it comes to the kind of hours I keep !













Neily This is so terrific.. you have done exceptionally well! Great job! I know you will keep it off this time...

You will be looking so spiffy in all your old clothes and do treat yourself to a nice new set also! Perhaps a zoot suit! YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYY! Great job Mr. Skinny!

Good to hear that and well done, hope you carry on being so positive.

Pity you couldn't save some of the weight loss and give it me. I need about another 2 stone.  ;D

But seriously, what's your average calorific intake per day?

I am so determined and focused TMM that no way am I going to not do this !...I am extremely highly motivated.

Thank you so much for your kind support and encouragement !

I still have two stone to lose so, i'll save them for you and then they're all yours !


My daily intake is circa 1000 calories...but my daily burning on the treadmill is about *goes to average August *..ok..in Augsust...doing six days a week I averaged a burn of 772 calories a day on the treadmill. On Sundays, I take a whole day off and go on a free for all eating session !...I don't pig out but allow myself a day of treats !!..ie a proper meal out....no holds barred !!

Because of this..on Saturdays I usually do a good couple of hours or more and have burned in excess of 1200 calories , supplementing with isotonic drinks !..I feel fantastic !!

Today I cycled 4 miles


.... and did 7.1 miles on the treadmill..that burned 862 !(according to the treadmill readout...

gonna do it !!...gonna do it...gonna maintain it too !!..I have to !!
