At this moment in time I’m currently sitting on just over a stone and a half. Which translates to 21.6 pounds (give or take)
I’m incredibly happy with this and I have just joined the gym so I will probably not lose a lot more, as it will just be kind of toning what i’m at now.
I’m pretty much at the goal I set myself when I first started trying to lose weight about a year ago
and when I was actually focused and trying it took me just under 2 months. Ridiculous.
I’m really happy
But i suppose I should update you all (The 5 of you that’re here) I have been dieting and not mentioned it to many people.
But I have lost 18.5 pounds. I’m incredibly happy about this and hopefully it can only continue, because not only am I noticing the loss, but I feel better too.
It makes me feel stupid for not doing this earlier as it turns out be so easy.
So just a little update for you all.
I woke up early (about 10ish, early for a day off) and had Corn Flakes and a cup of coffee.
After that I headed to the gym and did about 2 hours work. Showed me how unfit I am as I was fucked after it.
After the gym I met 2 of my friends and we went for a swim, more productive than normal because we actually did some lengths and stuff rather than just sitting in the sauna, although we did that too.
Afterwords I turned down not one, but two take-aways, and I’m proud of that fact.
There was a time not too long ago
a nigga like myself had to strong arm a hoe where I would have had both without even thinking about it, so its a sign of progress I hope.
No one got back to me on whether or not you’d like to hear my starting weight, but I decided I’d tell yous anyway.
13 stone 5 pounds.
I am now at 12 stone 11.
My deadline is July 12th, I hope to be under 12 stone, but I’m over the moon with my weight loss so far. What I find amazing is the fact that it isn’t even difficult really, once you cut out all the real shit its easy.
For example, my main vice was always crisps (outside of take aways of course) and I can honestly say I’ve had maybe 3 packets of crisps in the past month, and the thing is, you don’t even think about it really.
I honestly hope people are getting something out of this, because it is just a place for me to vent what I’ve done, and partly to gloat (I’m not ashamed, everyone needs a pat on the back sometimes) and maybe if I’m successful to look back on if I ever get tempted, just to have to look at all the shit I’ve went through.
I’ll leave you with a quote for today from Bobby Kennedy.
Physical fitness is not only
one of the most important keys to a healthy body;
it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity.
-John F. Kennedy
Went round yesterday and sorted it, I am now a member of the gym and have paid my money. I plan on going 3-4 times a week but it’ll vary depending on uni work and work work.
Today, I have work so I didn’t have time to go to the gym before it, but depending on what time its open till I might go straight after work.
In case I don’t go though I’ve done some exercise in the house:
Sit-ups = 100
Planks = 3x40 seconds hold.
Sprints (up and down the stairs) = 20
and that’s all I had time for.
In terms of food, I’ve eaten some noodles and one packet of crisps.
I’m having a Chicken Tikka Masala tonight, but not ordered, I’m making it myself.
First off, I apologize for not updating for a few days. The truth is I’ve had nothing to say.
My attempts to join the gym keep failing as something always gets in the way be it uni work or work work.
But tonight will be the change, I was playing a game of 5s tonight for the first time in ages, and that’s been organized so that it is a weekly thing now, so its something to build on.
I plan on joining the gym this week, it will happen and it needs to happen really.
Outwith that I’ve still been doing my daily exercises, planks and sit ups etc.
But my diet fell away a little bit and I’ve been a little over indulgent this week. Its better it happened now I guess, rather than later on through the diet.
So I hope you all stick around (all three of you ((not that I’m ungrateful, I’m very grateful you guys are even here reading this)) so I can hopefully get things back on track and start to fix it all.
Btw out of curiosity, would you guys wanna know my starting weight, I’ve been debating whether or not to put it up. So I’ll leave it up to yous.
Again, thanks for even being here. :)
After work today I walk to the gym so I can renew my membership, pretty tired but I was determined.
So I get to the gym and realise I have no cash with me, but I think its all good they’ll have a card machine. I go through all the shit I have to do to renew then when it comes to payment I ask for their card machine. Its broken.
So now I have to go down there tomorrow with money this time.
In other news, this morning I had corn flakes, then went to work. At my break I had a cup of water and a packet of walkers lights.
I’m having some wholewheat toast and salmon just now.
Tonight I’ll be having Spaghetti Bolognese.
Tomorrow we try the gym again.
I’ll let you guys know how it goes.
about my progressive weight loss programme over the next few months.
I’ve been living on a shit diet for the past 3 years and now my body has got to a point where it is affecting my mood and making me unhappy.
My diet mainly consisted of about 4-5 take-aways a week and little to no exercise. You can understand that this kind of diet for around 3 years hasn’t had a good affect on me and my life.
So for the past month I have been changing my diet and trying to fix that before I went into any heavy exercise plan. My reason for this was, what would be the point in exercising frequently if I still had a shit diet that was causing the weight loss to slow.
I’m mainly making this blog to make myself accountable to this weight loss program i’m gonna try
I’m gonna try and document it daily and let you all know what I’m doing that day, maybe even say what I have eaten that day.
Its mainly for myself, but if it helps anyone else maybe find their way into a diet plan then I’m doing something right.
Also it coincides with lent, not that I’m particularly religious, but its as good a starting point as any.
So tomorrow I re-join the gym and the real diet starts.
