Hey every one :) As you can see from the title this is going to be a weight-related post so if you aren't interested in such things, please click off now :)
A couple of weeks ago I was having a down few minutes and decided to jump -figuratively speaking ;) - on the weighing scales. I have come to the conclusion it was to make myself feel worse that I already did. I didn't disappoint myself.
Although I am not ready to tell the world - or the few people who read my blog - what my start weight is I am happy to tell you my losses and gains between now and my target weight.
Since last week I have lost half a stone (7lbs)!
This may not sound a lot but it is a start. And considering that I haven't been being particularly careful with what I eat, it's a great accomplishment to me.
Since discovering yesterday that I had lost 5lbs I thought that it was a blessing, giving me the jump start I desperately needed. I have cut out Crisps, Chocolate and Biscuits completely. This may sound harsh to some but I do this ever year coming up to Easter for Lent so this will be easy for me.
What will be difficult is the exercise side of things. I would rather skip a mean than do 30/60 minutes of the damned stuff. I do however enjoy walking a hell of a lot. I have a rather large dog who also enjoys walking so for the past two days I have taken him for a 3.5 mile walk with a friend. It feels great to be in the fresh air whilst burning calories.
So that's my little round up of the past couple of quite eventful days. I have been given the opportunity to start what I have been wanting to do for so long now and I am hoping I wont screw it up.
Do you have any experiences with weight loss? Any tips for a beginner?
Thank you for reading :)
