4 down, 20 to go…

January 28, 2013

tip of the icebergSo yay! This morning I was officially down 4 kilos since I started (yet another) get healthy and thinner plan, this latest one the day after my birthday. I got an unexpected “boost” of a 2.5 kilo loss when I was sick as a dog for several days, and so far that weight is staying off. Anyhow, I seem to be onto something. I don’t really want to talk about my “technique” since it’s actually very simple and sensible and somehow I don’t want to jinx what seems to be working by talking about it. I know that probably doesn’t make sense, but it does to me.

What I can say is that it has nothing to do with that idiotic new 5:2 fad diet going around in which you starve yourself 2 days a week on 500 calories and then “eat whatever you want” for the other 5 days. I mean, doesn’t that sound like a perfect breeding ground for new and unusual eating disorders?

Meanwhile, I do know that this is the tip of the iceberg since I still have 20 more kilos to go, and I also know I’ve been here before. But this time I feel very optimistic that this is my time for change. As long as I get a clean PET scan in March I reckon this is going to be My Year. :)

    Well, you have to start somewhere – and some time for that matter. And that sounds lke a pretty good one.

    My own weight loss seems to have stalled a bit – down 20lbs or so since before the attack, but seem to have hit a plateau. So, I need you to succeed, then hopefully that will inspire me to kick on a bit!

      20 pounds is pretty damn good! I don’t actually expect to lose 20 kilos any time soon, but I’d be happy with 10 by May.

      The good thing is I haven’t really “dieted” to achieve it, just made some basic changes. As I say, bit frustrating to be stuck where I am, but not too disappointed.

      Hopefully you can maintain the momentum you have started with – getting back to the gym and your normal lifestyle must help that as well.

    You’ve made a great start – Good luck!

      Thanks, though in theory luck shouldn’t really have anything to do with it. ;)
