Weight Watchers weigh-in Week 24

 I am not too disappointed with a gain this week. The main reason for this gain is that I missed out on three days of cycling to the office as a result of the weather. My intake remained the same.

This week I was comparing my time on Lighter Life (starvation diet)  with Weight Watchers. I was on LL from Feb 2010 to May 2010. It was a quick weight loss. I was starving all the time. I missed food so much. Once I came off LL, the weight just piled on. These fast weight loss diets do not work for the long term.

With Weight Watchers it is a gradual weight loss and I do not feel hungry. I stopped counting points in my third week with Weight Watchers. I just follow overall guidance. I want to make sure that after Weight Watchers, I maintain my weight without any point counting.

I hope the weather improves so that I can cycle to the office every day.


This week’s result– Gained 1lbs (one pounds)

Total Weight loss to date: 26lbs

This week’s Weight:11 stones 13lbs

Target Weight:10 stones

Weight left to lose now:26lbs

The most effective way to lose weight is exercise. When I was in my thirties I would do a lot of exercise and ate anything I wanted and I was very slim.

As I've concentrated on my own business, like you, I have adopted a sedentary lifestyle and the pounds have piled on.

As well as some exercise we need to solve the problem with diet. Last week I decided to go on a diet. I wish I had weighed myself when I made the decision. I am not going to go to Weight Watchers. I think the best way is to use will power. I have only been eating healthy food. I don't change my diet for anything. I used to go to Sainsbury's and - although they do have some healthy food - I have started to shop at Waitrose. Waitrose has much more healthy food combined with it looking enticing.

I weighed myself late last year and since then I have lost 12 kgs. My wife says I should try to only lose 0.5 kg a week but I'd like to aim for 1 kg a week.

... I had you down as a pounds and ounces sort of guy - :o)

I'm wit you though, 2lb a week is a good target, and 2 stone since Christmas is impressive.When it comes to weight, you loose it quicker in pounds, when driving you get there quicker in kilometers - rofl

It's the influence of my wife - she's from Poland.

If I mention pounds and ounces she doesn't have a clue.

I think we should be talking about stones and pounds not pounds and ounces.

This blog is intended to show the highs and lows I face day-to-day working as an ambitious and highly driven small practice owner.

My blogs will be both professional and personal. What happens in my personal life affects my professional life and vice versa.

Just covering one aspect and not the other means that I will not learn how to improve and change.

Weight loss is an ongoing issue for me. You will find my weight loss blog on http://firsttab.co.uk/

My key motivation for blogging is constant and never ending improvement. Writing helps me to do this.

I hope you find my blogs of some interest.
