Week Seven is over – Long Live Week Eight!

A very quick update here, as today is going to be rather busy… OK – important update first.  I’ve weighed in a day early as I’m off on holiday for a week tomorrow morning, and have lost 2lbs.  That brings me down to exactly 17st and I’m really pleased about that.  To be completely honest, […]

I need to get me some goals…

I’ve mentioned a couple of times that I’m not sure what my end-goal needs to be, and that I’m pretty certain that I don’t even want to think about something that far off right now.  That’s still true, but I need to think of some interesting goals along the way, as they might be really […]

Nothing like a bit of moral support…

Just a brief update here, but I had to share a conversation that I had earlier today. I happened to be discussing my progress with my good lady wife earlier today (alright I was boring the pants off of her with it like I have been doing for six weeks now) and mentioned that very […]

And we’re back on track…

Sixth weigh-in and 4lb off.  To say I’m relieved would be something of an understatement.  In fact, to say that I’m totally, completely, 100%, unbelievably, ‘think of just how relieved you think anyone could possibly ever be and multiply it by 10’ relieved would still be something of an understatement. I’m grinning too, which is […]

Isn’t it strange…

Isn’t it strange that following last weekend’s traumas, I haven’t felt the need to update the blog at all?  Well it’s strange for me anyway – not sure it’s all that important how you feel about it, what with there probably being no-one who is actually reading this anyway 😉  Must do something to publicise […]

That which I have feared greatly…

It’s Sunday morning, the sun is trying to clear away the rain, and I’m sitting at my desk with tears flooding down my cheeks.  I’m aware that this is a rather ridiculous state of affairs, but as usual, this is hot off the press, real life being played out before your very eyes, so you […]

Chinese Buffet Blow Out

Went out for a Chinese buffet last night, and ate myself stupid 🙂 There are some positives and some negatives to take from the experience. First of all the negatives: I didn’t really think things through very well before I went I didn’t stick to the plans that I did make I ate way more […]

One of ‘those’ conversations…

Just a quick update today – I mentioned this in a previous post, but it’s happened again, and I’m not sure if I should even be paying attention to it, but it really bugs me at the moment. During a facebook conversation with someone who’s become a pretty good friend recently, we were chatting about […]

An interesting few days…

Hi – I’ve had a couple of interesting experiences over the past couple of days, so thought I’d better share 🙂 First of all, I had a bit of a scare at the gym.  I was on the treadmill, and I was pushing myself quite hard.  It’s probably worth noting here, that this is all […]

First Target Reached :-)

Right – first of all, I’m really pleased with myself right now.    I started this journey at 18st 4lbs and I tipped the scales yesterday morning at 17st 5lbs, which means that I’ve just reached my first target, which was to lose 5% of my starting weight.  This is what is generally regarded as a […]

The first really difficult day

I’m not sure why it’s been difficult, but today has been pretty horrible.  For no reason that I can discern, I’ve felt an overwhelming compulsion to eat on a number of occasions.  It’s a feeling that I’m familiar with, as it’s been a fairly regular visitor for as long as I can remember, and it’s […]
