First day (proper) on the diet.
Started the day with a slice of toast and a cup of tea, and tried to weigh myself, but the scales I had were the mechanical ones, and I couldnt see the numbers very well so, I decided to go into town and pick up electrical scales from Argos. was about a 2 mile walk, there and back. I weighed myself and for the starting point I am 16st6lbs. (With clothes on. I want to lose at least 2st.
After I weighed myself I went on my cycling machine and was on it for about an hour. At the same time I was using an abdominal belt as well. I then had dinner a little while after, a tin of soup and for tea I am having Spag Bol.
On Wednesday me and my friend are going walking. Either around our country park or in the countryside, we havent decided but it should be about 10k.
Because I am on antidepressant tablets, it is harder for me to lose weight as a side effect is that your weight changes. But I am hoping to keep it up.
To help me with it, when I get to 16stone or below, I will reward myself by getting a DVD or something like that.
I will weigh myself every Monday, and make a record of how much I weigh. To keep it as accurate as possible I will wear roughly the same clothes and weigh myself in the same area each time.
I have stopped having fizzy drinks like cola and am only drinking tea or water. I have cur out alcohol, I never really drank before anyway. I have also cut out fried foods, like instead of having chips I have oven chips and have been having less chips. I have also cut out crisps and I dont put margarine on my toast or bread . My biggest weakness is having a snack in the evening. But I am trying to stick to it.
