Today I realised the extent of the weightloss required. I wouldn't say I'm huge, but after reviewing my BMI I know that I have a lot of work to do.
It's not just about the weight though, I want to be healthier and fitter - I want to know that I'm putting the nutrients I need into my body and that I'm making good decisions... plus, I still want to be able to treat myself every so often, else I'll go mad.
My next step is to think about the things my body needs and how to get more of them in a cost effective manner, whilst avoiding any deprivation of calories etc. I don't want to go down the route of eating too little and causing the muscle I do have, to be burned for energy.
Hopefully along the way I'll learn more about what I need and how the things I'm eating/drinking affect my energy and weight.
At the moment, I'm at my heaviest... for now lets just see how I get on and use this as a journal to post my challenges, successes and losses - every little helps right?!
Weight: 16st 4lbs
Hopefully there'll be an improvement soon!
