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).
Our 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.
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!
And yes, chocolate, crisps, biscuits and cake are still off the shopping list.
Wow! Very well done! It is SO hard to lose Any weight once you get a little older!
Thanks. We have just got back from another mile and a half walk. Maggie thinks it’s all pretty terrific (actually we went out earlier than normal to beat the rain!)
