Now for the big push

June 13, 2023 Weight Loss Comments

The big push is now on. I have once again moonlighted with eating whatever the hell I wanted to and within three weeks I am back in the 16st region at 16st 1lbs. That for me is a signalling that it’s time to start losing it again. Hopefully Steve feels the same - in that I want to push myself now for the cruise in September.

So, starting from today I will once again be disciplined and resolute in making those goals happen. It is not hard to do - I just need to be focused and have a clear goal objective in my mind. My target is 14st 7lbs by September - which is easily achievable if I set my mind to it. I also need to start going down the gym again really. I need to stop making excuses and do it - even if it’s just resistance training.

Anyway, thought I would make a statement of intent here about it. Looking forward to Thursday. Another trip to Chessington looms, this time it is for my Nephews birthday.

Chow! xD

A weight update for you guys - I currently reside at 15st 8lbs which is the least amount I have weighed in over 10 years of my life. Fantastic news. To know you are in the zone is particular cases, such as last night. Steve has had a rubbish week and there are things going on at the moment out of his control that are dragging him down. He decided to get a chinese last night - but I flat out refused to partake in that. Instead I put some mixed vegetables in a wok, added some pepper and wasabi and cooked off a chicken breast. It was very nice and in terms of calories, pretty damn low! So I decided to treat myself to a cappuccino this morning.

These situations of saying no feel ultimately satisfying, I have a stead fast goal for September to be 14st 7lbs and I will reach that milestone. Whilst I am being disciplined I am not losing out - if I feel like I deserve a treat, instead of getting a takeaway I will have a nice coffee whether it liqour or with a squirt of syrup. It feels like a treat - many I know would have something like that everyday.

From the rapid weight loss of last week - it has now measured itself out to a smaller figure. Never be disheartened by this though - any loss is a good loss unless of course you are going to be on national TV then something like 3lb a week would be required so you don’t look like an idiot when it comes to the weigh in.

Anyway I am about to smash a chavs phone because he is blaring out music on his phone - see you later!

Beyond Expectation

May 19, 2023 Weight Loss Comments

Remember Monday when I said I would get back down into the fifteen stone region by the following Monday? Well, I have smashed that target well and truly. Beyond expectation I have gone from 16st 4lbs to 15st 11lbs in just as space of, yes, 72 hours.

I am blown away by this progress, surely I will now even out and lose perhaps just 1lb more by Monday. The unbelievable thing here is that I haven’t actually done any real exercise - I simply have not had the time either. This result has been a culmination of discipline and a need to re-address the balance of the indulgence of the previous weeks and boy did I shatter it.

Anyway better post this before the 3G loses it’s signal through Botley, chow x
