Week 8 - RESULTS

It's that time!

STARTING WEIGHT:   265.2 lbs

ENDING WEIGHT:  264.6 lbs

WEIGHT LOSS:  0.6 lbs

This was a difficult one to gauge, as this morning I was still at home after a little weekend break. The scales I had to use didn't measure in pounds, so I had to see what they said in stone, and then do a conversion to get my weight in pounds. The thing is, the numbers are very close together on those scales, and not being electronic, seem to shift around by several pounds-worth depending on your posture, position etc.

In the end, I hedged my bets, and took the lowest loss that I recorded. I only really trust the scales I've been using in my flat, and wanted to avoid another overestimation this week.

So I've settled for the loss of 0.6 lbs. Its my second-lowest weekly loss, but I'm more than happy to take it. It's also my eighth successive loss, which I'm very happy about. When I weigh on my usual scales tomorrow I may find that I lost much more than this (which will simply give me a headstart on next week's weigh-in), or that I actually didn't lose this much/gained weight (in which case, I'll at least have a week to set it right). Feels a bit of a cheat, just estimating my weight, but it means that this week I'm determined to make sure its accurate, and to keep on my downward trend.

And that's important this coming week, as I have no more lectures, and could conceivably spend the entire week in my room revising. That's hardly conducive to exercise, so I'm going to make sure I do my weights and go for runs on alternate days (went for a run while I was at home, and managed my old distance of 4 miles - actually found it a lot easier than I used to, so will try and up my distance here in London to match it!).

Anyhow, time for my total tally. I will upload my progress photos tomorrow - don't want to do it now, as its already the afternoon and I've had my breakfast etc, so I'll probably look bigger than I ought to!
