Setting my own challenges for this week
Sunday, April 10, 2016      3 comments

I survived another weekend without gaining weight, in fact I lost 0.4kg which is more than I achieved last week. I have been managing to have some of the treats that other people are having, but within the constraints of a healthy balanced diet... Read more

I didn't put on weight this weekend! This is fantastic for me as I virtually always put on weight at the weekends only to have to loose it again over the week before I weigh in on Friday. If I hadn't had support from people on SPARK then I wou... Read more
Has anyone ever taken a planned break from their diet? Does it work?

The weekend survival plan worked last week worked. I didn't loose weight last weekend, but I didn't put it on either. I'm feeling a bit down and in a rut at the moment. I was thinking about having the Easter weekend off. Just weighing in ... Read more
Weekend survival plan - I will not put on weight AGAIN this weekend.

I'm not recording my weigh in today, I don't believe I have put on weight, for various reasons. We ate really late last night, I got up early - hence weighed in quite close to a late main meal. I'm a bit bunged up and bloated. I will try agai... Read more
A problem with weekends.

One thing I have noticed since I started weighing (but not recording) myself on a Monday is that I put on weight over the weekend. Now that I have noticed this I need to find the exact cause and put a stop to it. It's not meal planning. I... Read more
Finally the scales have given a bit.

It is such a relief. Finally the scales have gone down again. When I weighted myself on Monday I had actually put on more weight so my loss is actually greater than recorded. Funny that this has happened on a week when I can't train. I have ... Read more

Day 35 This week the scales stubbornly refused to budge - again. So my plan had been to up the exercise. I don't think I should further lower my calorie input. The weather in February has been very hot, I found myself thinking that... Read more
It's not about the scales

I had a very disappointing weigh in this week. I put on 0.2kg, I wasn't expecting it and frankly felt gutted. I was expecting to bust my first milestone and be less than 105kg, but I didn't: I'd put on weight. It doesn't seem fair. I tol... Read more
Day 17 - there is less of me now than this time last week

It has been a difficult week in some ways. I've had a summer cold, which affected my balance and made me feel quite poorly. I've a bit more sympathy with man flu now. The first day I was ill I didn't bother to log what I was eating, I tho... Read more
Day 7 - Disaster day
Tuesday, February 02, 2016      5 comments

I am so cross with myself. I don't know why it happened yesterday but I completely failed at my diet. Whether it was the disappointing weigh-in, the hot, humid oppressive weather or a secret desire to keep the status quo. Yesterday I ate anyth... Read more

My new members challenge is to write a blog for about my progress over the past few days. The truth is I don't know how my diet is going. I will weigh myself tomorrow, day 7, but I'm going to be weighing myself on Fridays. I won't be getting ... Read more

Wow. I can't believe I did this. This is definitely going to be my sort of thing. This is the person I want to be. I was worried that there wouldn't be a wet suit my size. My worries were unfounded. But although it was a very snug and... Read more
The start of the venture

Over the years I have tried diets, some have worked for a while. And yet here I am with nearly 40kg to loose. That is nearly another person! But this time, this time will be different. I can't explain but I know it, I know it deep inside... Read more
