An interesting week - lost just over 1KG and without this forum I'd been thinking what's the point? All that effort and only a marginal loss of weight. So Checked my measurements and there are also 4 less cm round my waist. Then I remembered the 20 mile 2700 feet of ascent bike ride yesterday.... Which was effortless. Almost so effortless I discounted it. So something must be working. Haven't felt like that since my 20s.
I'm now at 104 kg its been years no decades since I was below 105 so thats significant. Next target is 103 KG which puts me into the overweight BMI category. Thats significant. The next target after that will be to go below 100kg which I hope to do by the end of the month.
I'm getting quite used to only having 1500 calories a day, its comfortable and not too harsh.
Looking back on my record sheets was interesting. slightly more calories this week than last and fewer trips to the gym - last week lost 500g more. Something to learn there. The cycling is going really well - I've a sportive in two weeks time so that focusses the mind but the next step for me is to get out running a bit - only a couple of K to start with but I'm considering the prospect of that with some anticipation rather than dread. I always fond it hard to get nutrition right around running so what I've decided to do is just start with shortish stints no matter when Ive eaten and see what happens.
Best part of this week - lots of old clothes are fitting again. In fact I'm regretting getting rid of a few things I thought I would never fit again. Never mind - I'll treat myself after week 12 to a couple of nice pairs of trousers and a couple of shirts- maybe even a T shirt as well - 'cos I won't look horrible it by then
Enjoy your week!
