I recently conducted a little experiment.

I put a ‘poll’ in our members only Facebook group.

It said “On a scale of 1 to 10, where 1 is all day in bed and 10 is so busy you might die, how “busy” would you say you are on an average week?”

And people were able to select a number between one and ten.

There were about 40 replies.

So a relatively small sample size.

But interesting results nonetheless.

Everyone picked between 6 and 9.

Which is roughly what I’d expect.

No one’s picking a 10 from that description.

A five or less feels like you aren’t doing much.

And if you gauged yourself as a three, you might not feel comfortable sharing that.

What I then did was check two things for everyone who had picked an option.

How many sessions they have done so far this month, averaged per week.

And how much weight they have lost this year.

And then averaged each for the ‘group’.

There was, of course, large varieties within the group.

And there were people answering who aren’t looking to lose weight.

But I thought the averages might be interesting.

Here’s what I found.


Average sessions: 4.2
Average weight loss this year: 8.6kg


Average sessions: 3.5
Average weight loss this year: 2.8kg


Average sessions: 2.9
Average weight loss this year: 4kg


Average sessions: 2.5
Average weight loss this year: 5.4kg

It’s probably unsurprising that those that considered themselves busier made less sessions on average.

But each group average more than enough to make good progress.

But, in terms of ‘results’, busy-ness didn’t seem to make all that much difference.

The 6/10 group had the best results but were some what skewed by a few ‘big hitters’ who’d lost 20+ kilos each.

It was then the ‘busiest’ group that had the next ‘best’ results followed by the 8/10 followed by the 7/10.

Again, there’s only so much to be taken from such small sample sizes (and self assessments).

But, it’s interesting isn’t it?

A reminder that how busy we are doesn’t have to negatively effect our results.

If we chose for it not to.

Much love,
