Weight Watchers weigh-in Weeks 28 to 34

It has been a long time since my last blog posting on my weight loss journey. It is not that I was embarrassed in any sense about my lack of recent progress. I just was not in the right frame of mind for Accounting Web posting.

The point about my blog as many know is to reflect how it is – the good, the bad and the damn right ugly. Looking at my lack of progress it has been ugly over the past few weeks. Only a pound weight loss in 6 weeks -as shown in the table below.

 

Week  

Weight loss/gain

29

Gained one pound

30

Loss 4.5 lbs (four and a half pounds)

31

Loss I pound

32

Gained half a pound

33

Gained 2 pounds

34

Gained 1 pound

Net result

Loss of one pound only!

 

I have a good excuse for the lack of progress – I have not been in a good mental state. It will take time to recover,

I have realised over the past few weeks that  the lack of control on myself makes me feel worse so I need to gain back control and try and get back on weight loss track again. Gaining weight will make me feel terrible.

This week has been made terrible food wise so I am expecting another gain. I will aim for weight loss effective from today!

Thank you so much Tim Robinson and David Winch for your PM. It meant a lot.

On the first of May 2012, I weighed 102.9 Kg's    1 thanks

So from 102.9, I am now 93.8 in 70 days (I think it's 70) 

My target is 80 kg's which would put me right back to where I was aged 22 when I graduated some 23 years ago. 

To achieve this I am weighing myself DAILY, at 6 am and if I've not lost 0.15 Kg's, I reflect on the amount of exercise and the amount of food (and reflect on my estimate of it's calories) and decide if my behaviour is the cause or it's just a random blip, caused by nothing in particular. 

I've taken to cycling to work 3 days a week, climbing one night a week, and at the weekends running rather than walking the dog on the beach. 

If you lack control, you need this level of anality (is that a word?).  You have to become slightly obsessed by the target, and start to really face the facts about what you consume.

I'll give you an example.  I work in an office with 100 plus engineers, and purchasing people, with a 'rule' that if someone has a birthday, or goes holiday, or goes away on business, they bring in treats, and then there's the Unfinished Buffet lunches, from meetings with external suppliers and customers.  When I previously tried to loose weight, I found this 'feast' too tempting, and I estimate that per day I was actually consuming 1000 calories extra.  A Sweet here, a slice of cake, deep fried samosas, pork pies, extra sandwhiches. 

But I see it now and I'm disgusted with my previous self. 

Christmas is my current estimate.

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.
