Weight Watchers weigh-in Week 18

This week’s loss pales into insignificance in comparison to last week’s whopper loss. Nevertheless it is still a loss and not a gain. As Tesco slogan says every little helps. I just wish this little was a bit higher.

I normally do not like looking at myself in a full length mirror. Shoulders up is best. I did this morning. I have some way to go! What a mess. Flabby, man boobs and all loose.

Having said that it looks better than when I was 19lbs heavier. It will look far better with a further thirty one pounds lighter. I need to remember this when I just cannot stop eating. Why did I let myself go like this? Some would that this is just being middle aged. What tosh!

Hair loss and hair growing in places you do not want is being middle aged and getting old. Putting on weight is just neglect. Why make excuses? Okay my body slowed down, but this should have been backed up by lowering intake. In my case my intake went up.

I do not think my reason for neglect is that different to what others would say - concentrating on more important matters. What could be more important than my health and how I feel?

On reflection I should have taken steps to be healthy rather than gain one more qualification and get higher up the career ladder. The worst part is I have not changed much. I still do not make time to go the gym and overall look after my health. I want to expand my business first! This is stupid of me.


This week’s result – Loss .5lb (half a pound)

Total Weight loss to date: 19lbs

This week’s Weight: 12 stones 6lbs

Target Weight: 10 stones

Weight left to lose now: 31lbs

Had you thought about sticking some business-type audiobooks on your ipod (if you have one) and telling yourself that you're working at the same time as getting fit? Might encourage you to be a gym bunny more often if you're there having planned (in your daily work schedule) sessions on marketing or whatever via your headphones. And you might find yourself having brilliant ideas while you pound the treadmill or whatever just because you're letting your brain switch off from the office environment.

This blog is intended to reflect the highs and lows that I face day to day working as a sole practitioner.

I tend to blog regularly. I don't know why, but there is a strong need in me to blog my every day experience. I have no idea how long this will last.

All I can say is It helps me to put my thoughts, feelings and views on a blog. When writing I am not too concerned about spelling, grammar or even how I come across. I feel that if I worry about these areas, the subject matter I want to put across will not reflect how I am thinking and feeling at the time.

My blogs reflect the type of person I am. That is the nature of blogging. It is meant to reflect views and thoughts of the blogger.

I will not be to everyone's tastes. Thankfully AW has a good variety of bloggers. This means there are more than likely to be blogs more in keeping with your taste.

I am humbled by the fact that my blog is actually read! Not only this but some readers go as far as commenting.

Thank you for reading my blogs and commenting. I really do appreciate it.
