I never realised being a fanatic was so easy!
Thursday, April 18, 2013      2 comments

So all through this weight loss journey I've been fairly fanatical about what I eat and my treadmill workouts. If I have to miss a workout or I'm not in a position to track my food I've always tried to err on the side of caution and go for a wa... Read more
Messing with food and exercise - controlled apathy experiment.
Saturday, April 06, 2013      0 comments

As I approach my target weight (for fat loss, not muscle gain), I have been trying to taper my weight loss to gently ease down to the the 75kg I'm aiming for. I figure I don't want to power down to 75kg then suddenly slam on the anchors and st... Read more
Time for some serious outdoor walking

Wow, it's been a while since my last post. I've had a cold or something for about 10 days now. It's not really bad which makes me wonder if it is an allergy cause by all the dry grass turning to dust over here (we have a drought at the moment)... Read more
Weight loss - Not as hard as society say's it is.
Tuesday, February 26, 2013      1 comments

I was just posting a thank you to another members page and it occurred to me that this weight loss journey has not been as difficult as I expected it would be back at the outset. I've tried to lose weight before and have lost and gained it ... Read more

Wow, 2 posts in one day. No wonder I'm not getting any work done! Well I thought if I was going to moan about a binge night I should at least celebrate a milestone. The scales told me today that I've lost 20kg. It took an extra 2 weeks t... Read more

Ah the best laid plans... out the window they went again. :) My wife and I attended a Linkin Park concert last Thursday. It involved a trip to Auckland and an overnight stay with a friend. It was supposed to be "dinner and a show" but tur... Read more
Tanita Scales - Getting a correct reading
Tuesday, February 19, 2013      0 comments

So for some reason I took a full diagnostic reading off my scales the other night, (I usually jump on in the morning before I fill myself up with a day of eating and drinking). I was amazed to see the scales claim my body fat and estimated ... Read more
Should I lose another 5kg? Time for re-evaluation.
Wednesday, February 13, 2013      0 comments

I've been focused on getting down to 80kg for so long that I've never taken the time to contemplate if I should in fact aim lower. I picked at the 80kg goal as I remembered being "OK" with my body when I used to be that weight. To be hon... Read more
Another week - Another KG range
Tuesday, February 12, 2013      0 comments

I managed to sneak into the 81's this morning. Due to the couple of plateaus I had earlier this year I will not be making my target of 80kg flat for my anniversary on the 20th. But I should be in the 80-point-something range, so as long ... Read more
Suspicious Weight - I trust ye not, scales!
Wednesday, February 06, 2013      4 comments

I've noticed that recently it's been very hard to get what I would consider an accurate weight. The change in eating habits and food types means certain regular bodily functions have changed their timing. Now I never know if I'm carrying "extr... Read more
Finally off the 85kg plateau!
Sunday, January 27, 2013      2 comments

Well I have spent that last few days hovering around the low to mid 84's so I'll take that as a legit drop from the 85kg range. Finally. I'll be starting some light free weight work this week but I'll be taking it slow. I don't want to come ... Read more
Argh! Back at 85kg
Tuesday, January 22, 2013      2 comments

Well it turns out being 84kg was too good to be true. I'm guessing that due to the spate of warm weather we have been experiencing that I may have been a tad dehydrated at that weigh in (even though I'd been good with my water intake). I'... Read more
75% stage of my Goal passed
Saturday, January 19, 2013      2 comments

So after the Christmas / New Year slump where I seemed to hover at 85kg I have finally broken into 84kg range. I'm currently 84.2kg which means I'm now 3 quarters of my way towards my goal of 80kg. I should hopefully be down to 83 something in... Read more
Time for a new goal
Friday, December 28, 2012      1 comments

Well I made it to my birthday hitting 86.4kg. As expected (with xmas only 3 days prior) I did not hit 86kg flat, but it is still a win in my book as it marks exactly 14kg (30.9lb) lost since I started this whole process. With the new year loo... Read more
Will be testing the "exercise improved mood" theory
Thursday, December 20, 2012      3 comments

Well last night wasn't too great. My cat "Freddie" got run over. I've only had him for a year but he had become my little buddy. As I work from home it was nice to have someone around to talk to. He would even sleep on his bed next to my mon... Read more
