First Week of the New Diet!

First Week of the New Diet!

It’s my first full week re-committing to my diet, and here are the results!

S – 980 kcal consumed, 0 miles walked, 100 kcal exercised: 10 pts

S – 990 kcal consumed, 0 miles walked, 100 kcal exercised: 0 pts

M – 970 kcal consumed, 1 miles walked, 0 kcal exercised:  10 pts

T – 1500 kcal consumed, 2 miles walked, 0 kcal exercised: -30 pts

W – 990 kcal consumed, 2 miles walked, 0 kcal exercised: 20 pts

T – 1500 kcal consumed, 2 miles walked, 0 kcal exercised: -30 pts

Last measured weight: 102.8 kg

This week’s weight: 103.9 kg

Weight difference +1.1 kg: -25 pts

Total points: -45 pts

It’s easy to misinterpret this as a bad week, but there are a few things to be considered:

  • In the grand scheme of things, I’ve only gained a kilo.
  • While I’ve fallen short of my target, it’s still under the average energy requirement per day

What does this mean? Well, for one thing; I don’t have as far to go as I’d feared I had which is a HUGE motivator. Secondly, while life and work is tough I’ll find myself eating more than my target intake, I can still have something a little extra and continue to lose weight. As I’ve written about before, it just extends the period of time I need to diet!

So, my targets for this week: Increase the amount of exercise that I do, try and stick to target, and make sure next week’s weight is lower than this week’s! Thanks for keeping me motivated guys!

Starting Over!

Saturday, March 22nd, 2014

Hello all,First off,  and welcome back to slimblog!

First off, l just went to thank the readers and friends who wouldn’t let me give up on my slimming mission; It’s been a tough couple of months, and I’ve put back on some of the weight I lost, but the diet starts again today! I managed it before, and I can do it again. I just need to refocus my efforts, take some of the good advice I’ve been given, and learn to take problems in my stride!

So, tune in next week for the first of the new diet posts! I’d really appreciate it if you all kept me on the straight and narrow, again!
