For anyone that's in the remotest bit interested, I'm about to find out.
I last smoked on 3rd Dec 2012, I'm halfway through month four. Now admittedly Xmas came pretty soon into my quit, but in that time I've put on a real lump of weight. Here are the stats:
Adult male (oh yeah, really??)
6' tall, right on the nose.
Weight pre-quit: 14 stone 7 lbs - all muscle, honest
Current weight: 15 stone, 9 lbs
Weight gain - 16lbs.
That gives me a BMI of 29.68 which according to the NHS is borderline obese. :eek: That's proper tosh in my view, as is the 'desired' weight of 13 stone 2 lbs for my frame which gets me back to 'normal'. I'm sure a doctor may advise me otherwise, if he does then he can tell the entire welsh rugby team too, and see what happens.
I'm splitting the difference and going for 14 stone 5 lbs by the 23rd of May. That's 18 lbs off, in 9 weeks, 2 lbs per week.
Last night Mrs Hawkeye ordered the cross-trainer, which I'm sure will come with an appropriate exercise routine and a way of avoiding my neighbours hearing the grunts from the garage. And as of today I'm on a diet of zero red meat, cheese or alcohol. It's gonna feel like I'm living like a monk for a while
There. I need to get back into my shorts by the time the May half term holibob comes around.
How hard can it be???
