Update on my Diet 'Experiments'…

Hiya. This week went a little better.

As usual, I ate 3 meals a day, averaging at about 1,700-2,000 calories. I cut out mashed potatoes this week! But I still have white rice, everyday.

What I did change is that I unintentionally exercised less. I did about 30 minutes, sometimes less than that.

So...

Last week I was 287.2lbs.

This week I am 283.6lbs.

That's a loss of 3.6lbs.

That's very strange, considering I felt like I overate on some days. Either way, I'm glad.

Also, I reached a milestone!

Earlier in the year, I tried to lose weight by only eating once a day, and over-exercising. I relapsed, hard. I gained weight quite quickly. At that time, I remember being 20st 4lbs on the old Weight Watchers scales. Well, I'm now back to 20st 4lbs. I consider this the begining of my weight loss, properly. When I lose weight past this point, I'll be very happy.

My next goal is to get myself into the 19s, or on pounds, the 270s. That'd be a dream! I hope to achieve this by the time I start college in September.

I'll update you all next week. 🙋

It is going well DiDiZia keep it up.

You are so much more positive and I know you have been waiting for the day when you got to this weight so that you could really start you weight loss journey in your own mind. I think you have already been on that journey.

Keep clear of the mashed potato seems to be a good message for you.

Great loss DiDiZia and really glad that you've reached such an important goal. The 19s aren't far away and probably well within reach for you for the start of college.

All the best for your continuing journey.
