Week 72 and a Milestone Re-reached

Morning all 🙂 Hope you’re having a marvellous weekend and all that.  The weigh-in for week 72 has been completed, and I’m part-pleased and part-disappointed to report a -1.  In itself that’s a sign that I’m getting myself back on track, as I’d have bitten my arm off for a -1 a few weeks ago, […]

Life is getting in the way…

Hi all, I’m really quite sorry to have been so sloppy in my updates over the past month or two.  A combination of holiday (good excuse), loads of work (good excuse), loads of study deadlines (remarkably good excuse) and a whole load of couldn’t be bothered at the time (less than good excuse) has led […]

Stepping in the right direction

Morning all. First of all, thanks for everyone who got in touch last week following my rather gloomy update.  Your kinds words were much appreciated, and certainly helped make Shrinking World (not a phrase I’ve used before – that might stick!) a less isolated place.  For those of you who got in touch last week […]

Good Evening England, this is Stockholm calling!

Morning all 🙂

I hope you’ve had a delightful week – I certainly have! I’ve been in Stockholm on business all week, and can safely say that I have never seen a more beautiful city in my life. We’ve had warm, sunny weather, I’ve spent a week with some great people, and all in all I’ve had a fantastic time.

On the verge of a great breakthrough!

Morning all! The weigh-in for week 54 has just been completed, and I’m pleased to announce the departure of another pound.  A -1 for the week brings me up to 62lb lost, and down to 13st 12lb, and that weight is really significant to me.  I’ve mentioned in previous blogs that I’ve lost weight on […]

Goodbye 14st Somethings – Hello 13st Somethings!

Morning all! The Shrinking Man is absolutely ecstatic to announce the departure of 14st-something man, and equally proud to announce the arrival of 13st-something man.  Indeed I am 🙂  Weigh-In number 53 has just been completed, and a whopping -4 brings me to 13st 13lb (195lb/88.6kg) and puts my total weight-loss to date as 4st […]

Crumbs! That’s a lot of biscuits!

Morning all. Week 51 weigh-in just completed, and I’m pleased to report a -1 for all my hard work.  After three weeks of STS, it’s nice to see a little bit of movement in the right direction, although it’s still difficult to see it as ‘real’ progress.  I’m stuck in a similar position to where […]

Something tells me my lucky number’s gon-na be thirty-four

Happy Easter! I hope you’ve all had a good week, and that you are currently staring at a huge pile of chocolate and cursing your family for their lack of understanding and consideration.  Mine aren’t up yet, but I’m certainly hoping they’ve followed instructions and bought me loads of really top quality chocolate – it’s […]

Four steps forward, after one step back…

Morning all! The weigh-in for week 45 has just been completed, and I’m delighted to announce a whopping great big 4lb loss.  That brings me under 200lb, under 90kg (thanks for that one Reg!) and very close to my next target.  Just to recap my total progress so far, that means that in the last […]

I’ve always liked the number 42…

Morning 🙂 Dear reader, this is a significant moment for me.  Week 42’s weigh-in has just been completed, and I am thrilled and delighted to announce that I tipped the scales at 14st 4lb/200lb/90.9kg.  That means that in the 42 weeks since that spur of the moment decision to do something about my weight back […]

41 Weeks and Counting

Morning all! My name is TSM, and it’s been more than two weeks now since I last had a Tesco’s Value Midget Gem… The weigh-in for week 41 has just been carried out, and I am pleased to announce that the scales are showing a -1.  I must confess that they didn’t at first, but […]

Well I’m Still Here!

Morning everyone 🙂 The weigh-in for week 40 has just been completed, and I’m chuffed, relieved and more than slightly proud to report a -4 to get me back on track. As of this morning, I weigh a grand total of 14st 7lb.  That’s 14 and a half stone, 203 lbs or 92.3kg in new […]

Another one bites the dust…

Morning all 🙂 Weigh-in number 33 completed and another 1lb lost.  Mildly disappointed, as I felt like I’d earned a little bit more this week to be completely honest with you, and I also physically ‘felt’ like I’d lost more too.  A loss is still a loss though, and it keeps me moving in the […]

Mumble grumble moan etc.

What is it about me that means that whenever I really apply myself to this and get a great result, I seem to fall apart the next week?  There’s definitely a pattern here, and it’s stupid, annoying and frankly a bit ridiculous! Hi by the way 🙂 Week 32 weigh-in just completed, and 1lb lost.  […]

Well that’s a bit better then…

Morning all 🙂 Weigh-in number 31 done and 5lb lost.  Isn’t the body a fascinating thing?  You eat without control for a couple of weeks and stop exercising, and you put on 10lb.  You control what you eat and do lots of exercise, and you lose 5lb.  That’s scarily like common sense! It’s been an […]
