Hello all just another weekly report for you to peruse. I have lost a satisfying 4lbs, I weighed myself yesterday as well and I had lost 3lbs. I had a bad day yesterday at lunch, Mum made some bread there were nuts and cheese that got eaten as well - portion control was not there, so I was so full afterwards that I told myself not to have any dinner, which must of paid off as now I have lost another 1lb on top.
So my weight is 16st 9lbs, I need to lose 2 more lbs to get to my first stone for the year, I weigh less then my lightest before Christmas (by 1 lb) and my new bmi is 39.9, so I just go into the under 40s (from the very beginning of the year my bmi was: 42).
I have done a calculation to see what I can do for the year as a long term goal, I worked out that if I lose 2lbs a week until Christmas then I will be down to about 10 stone. It should be doable, it should be motivating if I push myself each week and lose the 2lbs the diet may finish by Christmas. It will probably be slower by when I get closer to that sort of weight, and I may want to stop before 10 stone maybe I will be happy with 12 stone or 11 stone - we'll see - it is good to have a goal.
As for the rest of the week I have dodged hot chocolates and cream and marshmallows which was very difficult I managed to stay the same after mums stew and dumplings - which I have to say is amazing and also very delicious. I have gone on three 1 hr walks.
I hope everyone has a good week weight wise and enjoyment wise too, all the best. jp.
