Adventures in Weight Loss!

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!
