Mid forties and Fed Up of being over weight. Time to track and learn what's what! I have been 'dieting' ALL my life... and have been getting bigger and bigger ALL my life... Something is not right here....
Date - Current weight : weekly loss : total loss : Thoughts on the week gone and the week ahead.

28th Jan - 279 : 2.5 : 12
Under 20 stone! Yipee!!! A good week, I was properly tired. Ate mostly within the calories bar Sat night where I binged on cheese and biscuits after visiting friends... It happens. Re activated my gym membership, went swimming twice and have a gym induction today. Do not feel any different bar food tasting nice. Body fat % is rather high.Still constipated, and TOM began today.

21st Jan - 281.5 : 1.5 : 9.5
Getting better with the logging and tracking. Water jug is 2 litres, so interim goal is to drink one of those a day, plus decaf tea and green/herbal tea. Am considering pulling out the yoga DVD's. Dog walks are good, now I have my yellow ankle wellies and 'proper' coat, though I have the usual blisters.... The IBS is flaring up and so the inevitable constipation.... Need to start working on the re introduction properly as per the FOD MAP advice leaflets from the dietitian. Food is becoming very tasty and I am enjoying cooking and eating(!) it. I am using so little now..... Almost lost 10lbs...! Almost under 20 stone....!

- Sometimes you just have to pull up your big girl panties and do it, whether you want to or not.

19th Jan - 283 : 3.5 : 8
Meh! Not good at updating this regularly. Will come in time but I DID lose 8 lbs in total and weighed myself on Mon (14/1). This week, have realised I prob eat too much butter and spelt bread as well as still trying to manage the fat intake. Still, slowly does.

- Be on a mission that doesn't suck.

11th Jan 2013 : 286.5 : 4.5 : 4.5
Set up this page a few days ago as way of tracking my thoughts and achievements.

1) I ate too much fat - saw this in the first few days with the nutrition tracker.
2) Need to up fibre and so began monitoring that.
3) Only I put food in my mouth, only I move (or not). This is ALL within MY control.
4) By accident (ran out of 'proper' coffee and started to use the decaf I bought for a friend) I have given up caffeine - and so the headaches are a pain - Still tis not a bad thing.

1st Jan 2013 : 291 : BMI : 44.26 (Severe/Morbid obesity!!!) Not as a new year resolution, but more as a now is the time to DO something. And so, here I am, tracking online and recording many things. Time will tell in all matters.

    "Transformation is not five minutes from now; it's a present activity. In this moment you can make a different choice, and it's these small choices and successes that build up over time to help cultivate a healthy self-image and self esteem."

Don't forget....you are worth the effort!

    "Every day of our lives we are faced with a choice.
    The choice to BE, or to be truly AMAZING.
    Ask yourself if what you're doing today is getting you closer to where you want to be tomorrow.
    No matter who you are, or what you do, you absolutely, positively do have the power to TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE."
    -Lorna Jane

    "Whenever you make a mistake or get knocked down by life, don't look back at it too long.
    Mistakes are life's way of teaching you. Your capacity for occasional blunders is inseparable from your capacity to reach your goals.
    No one wins them all, and your failures, when they happen, are just part of your growth. Shake off your blunders.
    How will you know your limits without an occasional failure? Never quit. Your turn will come."

    "Three of the most powerful words in the English language are 'I AM RESPONSIBLE.' It's tough to do, but when the day comes that you can say those words, believe them, and mean them, it will be the most liberating moment of your life. Taking responsibility for all of your results, for better or for worse, is taking back your power to create results in your life."
    -Tom Venuto
