On 22nd February 2010 I started trying to lose weight. 1st May 2010 I gave up coca-cola and all products containing chocolate. That's when my weight loss really kick started. September time I hit a bit of a plateau and was losing a few pounds, gaining them back. And towards the end of November (almost 7 months later) I started eating chocolate and drinking coke again. There have been a few days since then when I haven't eaten chocolate but not any where I've not drunk coke.
Until today. I've gone coke and chocolate free again as of today.
My weight is up, I'm 17 stone 12. Which given that today is the day after a weekend away of eating out each night and is the same as my weight on Thursday (my usual weigh day but I wanted to weigh today as well as it's a starting point) is pretty good. Given that I was pretty consistently around the 17 stone 4 mark before this, not so much but I'm not beating myself up over it. I don't see the point.
My starting weight on Feb 22nd 2010 was 18 stone 13 1/2 so I've still lost and maintained a one stone weight loss over the last year. I don't have a set goal weight and never did. I don't want to be thin, I want to be healthier.
It's definitely time to start moving back in the right direction though and I'm glad I'm doing it again at last.
