So Here I am determined to give this a go. Stumbled on NHS choices by accident looking for a BMI calculator. Just still overweight as opposed to obese. I have two stone to lose. I have been kidding myself about losing weight but actually the trend is upwards. I have reasoanble success in the past with weight watchers and protien based diet. But it is not working this time. I am good in the week and then have blow out weekends. I am nearly 49, pretty unfit and don't like wht I see in the mirror. Two years ago I was two stone lighter, very fit running half marathons and a keen cyclist. I now do de nada.
So I need to do something differenet to make a difference. So week one began 1 March. diet all over the place in terms of calories consumed - but I have started exercising. i have invested in a 10 week strength and fitness course with a personal trainer. No alchol and pretty much sticking to 1500 calories a day.
I have to say very disappointed with the results this week. Actually put on weight at begining on week - but it has dropped back a bit now - maybe two pound. I am going to weigh in monday. I have also taken measurements including my BMI. Will monitor and count calories thorugh my fitness pal. will drop back to 1400 calories a day.
So wish me luck - this really is it now.
