A Late 'Experiment' Update… 😁

Hi guys!

Just posting another update on my weight loss journey, and the ways I've been experimenting with my diet. I wasn't able to post earlier, because thee electric was out. 😥

Anywho! So, this week I had 3 meals a day. I ate these between 12pm-4pm. As with previous weeks, I had 1,700-2,000 calories per day, sometimes above 2,000 calories though! 😀 I had a Ting can earlier in the week, and ¼ of a Bounty bar. 😝 I'm glad it didn't negatively impact my weight loss, though.

I exercised a little differently. I exercised 3 times a day, for 15 minutes each time. That's 45 minutes. I don't do HIIT, because I'm not ready for that yet. How do people do that? 😓

Plenty of carbs as usual. No mashed potatoes! But loads white rice. 😈🍚

This is my typical daily meal.

Breakfast: LOTS of cornflakes, which I repeatedly top up. A little sugar, maybe 3 teaspoons. I'd estimate about 400-600 cal.

Lunch: Chicken wraps. I usually have chicken in the house that I use, and tortilla wraps. I use relish, and add some of my mother's salad. I also have fruit with this, usually purple grapes or bananas. 400-500 cal.

Dinner: Tomato Mackerel and rice. Sometimes a pattie with it. 700-900 cal, depending on how I want it.

As you can see, I like having 3 big meals. Snacks require too much maths for me. No thank you!

Drinks: 1 litre flavoured sugarless sparkling water. They sell them in Tesco, Morrison's, and Sainsbury's for about 45-50p. Sometimes you can get a pack of 4 1 litre bottles for £1.50p. I also drink water, and fruit juices.

Okay, as for my weight:

Last week I was 283.6lbs.

This week I am 280lbs.

That's a loss of 3.6lbs.

I hope to get into the 270s next week, but here's the exciting part. On my old Weight Watchers scales, it says I'm 20st 0¼lbs. I may be out of the 20s by next week. Fingers crossed!

Thanks for all the support guys! I don't think I would've achieved this without the support. 💞🙌

It's fantastic that you have found something that works for you and you can sustain. I am a carb addict too, so I can understand why you are eating what you are. If you stop losing weight then you already know what you have to do if you want to carry on losing. You are definitely on the right track in not snacking. Really well done for losing so much already, I am confident that you will be sub 20 next week!

Yes, it's something may have to look into soon, lol. I heard cauliflower could be a good substitute? I'll see eventually.

Thanks!

There is no substitute! I have just learnt to do with a lot less. Really well done on your excellent progress. James
