Weigh in result

It’s been a week, and we have both been very good, even walking past our favourite white chocolate honeycomb rack in one of the retailers (OK, I picked it up and put it back, my form of denial therapy).
scalesOur goal is to lose the 10 kilos Hubby has put on and the 2 and a half that I had.

Previous posts have sort of charted my struggle with weight control which goes back to my school days. I’d tried all the fad diets over the years, screwing up my system in the process and it wasn’t until we’d moved and changed GP that I eventually started to make progress.

One of the key things I learned was that weight that goes on fast comes off fast.
For me, this is not a myth, but fact, though I’m not using it as an excuse. Too many pounds of the non monetary variety is bad for my health (type 2 diabetes) and even more detrimental to Hubby’s, so it’s imperative that our weight doesn’t get out of control.

Weight loss for me has always been difficult, mainly because most of it was OLD weight, so tougher to get rid of. However, with an increase in exercise, a change of diet and lifestyle, the pounds slowly started to drop off , and even better, have stayed off.
Sadly I never won the battle with that last half a stone, but hey, I had won the war against the other four and a half.

OK then.
Our scales show our weight in kilos, stones and pounds, or just pounds.
I have lost 1.3 kilos (3lbs).
Hubby however wins the star of the week as he has lost a whopping 5.8 kilos (12lbs).

Result: we are both half way there, which is great!
successAnd yes, chocolate, crisps, biscuits and cake are still off the shopping list.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
