The Fight Is On … Time to Lose Weight Again

It’s been over 8 months since I last posted on this blog, Not So Heavy but I feel that must write again as the fight to lose weight is back on.

For many months, my weight had remained stable, around the 74kg mark. It was slightly up on my lowest weight but I was quite content, especially since I was not really exercising. I wasn’t drinking water like a boss and I wasn’t even getting to measure 10k steps per day on my toy any more.

Normalization and New Toys

Normalization was a goal of mine after my weight loss efforts. Now I have another new toy to measure my normality and hopefully give me enough incentives to keep the weight off and eventually get a bit fitter too.

More details in a coming post this week.

Weight Status 2016

Weight Status 2016

Back 2015 I had set myself some goals for my weight. The first 20 weeks were spent trying to achieve these goals. After a couple of weeks in the UK, and some 5kg later, for the rest of the year I was playing catch up to make the weight again.

I have brought some exercise into my left, though that has subsided somewhat recently. However general well-being as improved, my blood pressure now falls into the “normal” bracket and I am trying to get a decent amount of quality sleep.

Merry Christmas Everyone

Merry Christmas everyone. I am one day before my final weigh-in for this year and my “diet” has taken an interesting turn. Perhaps I shouldn’t say the diet per se, but the measurement.

Diet is a constant battle

Diet Is A Constant Battle

Diet is a constant battle. I have now been off the diet officially now for longer than I have been on it this year. Tomorrow’s weigh in will be week 22 post diet – I was dieting for 20 weeks prior. There have been some major weight swings and I have to take care of what I’m actually eating. That said – I expected no less.

15 Weeks Since Diet Ended – Gained Some Weight But …

So it’s 3,5 months since I officially stopped my diet and I have put on 3kg in that time. I’m not worried though as I have changed my lifestyle quite considerably since my “unsustainable” diet ended.

Soup is still in the menu a bit, but this to me is a bit like the 5 / 2 diet but less extreme. You can find out more why I’m not worried about the weight gain.

9 & 1/2 weeks since I ended my diet program

Last week marked one full year since I started my diet program – or change of lifestyle. I don’t normally take measurements too seriously midweek, but to mark the anniversary I decided to log the details.

I posted a few week ago about the 5 things I have learnt so far since ending my diet but as I hit the anniversary many things have become more apparent.
