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.

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.
