Two Stone, Twenty Eight Pounds and Ten Percent!

The running total this morning stands at twenty eight pounds!  That’s two whole stone!  That’s 14.6 kilos in new money!  That’s a grand total of just over 10% of my starting weight that has simply gone.  It is no more.  It has ceased to be.  It is ex-weight! (I’m aware that this probably wasn’t what […]

Give me an S! Give me a T! Give me an S!

STS! To the uninitiated amongst you, that’s three letters that I’ve not had to deal with on this journey so far. Stayed The Same I’m actually quite pleased with this (or perhaps I’m managing to allow my more positive/delusional side the ability to take control and make it seem like this was what I’d planned […]

Give me a B! Give me an M! Give me an I!

BMI Three letters that are guaranteed to strike a mixture of fear, confusion and amusement into the heart of any fat bloke. For the uninitiated amongst you, these letters mean very different things depending on who it is that’s using them.  In the hands of the medical profession, these letters are used to determine whether […]

Interesting Times

Hi I have a really interesting dilemma going on. A few days ago I was standing in our local Tesco Express (I’m not proud if it, but it happened…) when I caught a glimpse of something out of the corner of my eye.  It was as if I’d seen a sudden movement or a flash […]

Ten Weeks In

Hi. It’s been ten weeks since I started on this journey, but it feels like a lifetime.  Ten weeks that I’ve been working out points values of foods, paying attention to my stomach and what it’s telling me, planning what I eat, and basically enjoying what I’m eating more than ever before. It should be […]

If you’ve ever wondered…

If you’ve ever wondered just who would win in a fight between a badger and a hedgehog, it would be the badger. I have personally witnessed such an event, and it wasn’t a pretty sight, although the hedgehog won the prize for “most noise created by a supporting actor”. I suspect that this wasn’t much […]

Cardiology is a dirty word…

A month or so ago I had a bit of a fright while exercising on a treadmill in the gym (I think I mentioned it at the time).  Not a pain, but a very sudden, and very disturbing feeling of tightness in my chest that was directly related to increased effort.  Once I slowed down, […]

Holiday over, back to the scales…

Well I’m back from a week in the sun, and I’ve put on the grand total of 3lbs.  Not a glorified success by any means, but not a complete disaster either.  I didn’t stick to my points, and I put on weight.  That’s kind of useful in a way, because it sums up the whole […]
