Week 25 - RESULTS

This will be my second fortnightly weigh in a row - how have the past TWO weeks affected my weight?

STARTING WEIGHT:   228.2 lbs

ENDING WEIGHT:  225.9 lbs

WEIGHT LOSS:  2.3 lbs

Well, the above loss isn't too bad at all. I wouldn't have been surprised to see a gain, or a smaller loss than this, so very pleased with that.

I have to get back into the swing of things, though. I know I've been moaning a lot recently about having recorded smaller losses, and some of you have commented that this is bound to happen - the more weight you lose, the harder it becomes to shift those final few pounds. This is absolutely true.

However, the last few months haven't exactly been filled with exercise either. I've been dieting when I've been home, but otherwise that's it. I think this is what I find the most frustrating - if I'd been able to exercise during the last few months, I would have lost even more weight.

But heck, I've listed over and again the other priorities I had during the last few months, so I won't bore you with them again. The important thing is that they are now done and dusted, leaving me free to get right back into the weight-loss mindset.

And that means, exercise! I still have a bit of a chesty cough, so don't want to risk a run just now, but that doesn't mean I have to sit on my ass all day. I bought a guidebook to London recently, to try and discover all the free attractions in my home town, so today I think I might wander down and give some museums and galleries a visit. Means I'm up and about, which will surely burn more calories than sat in front of my laptop!
