Week 62

2lb loss!

Weyhey, woohoo, wiyi...

In addition to the weight loss, I punched an extra hole in my belt this week. This means that I'm 9 holes further down on the belt than I was when I started out on this healthy eating way of life. Getting the ruler out I discovered that this translates to 8 and a half inches off my waist over the past 14 months!

Starting Weight: 19st 9lb – 275lbs

Week 61


A little disappointed - I know I went over the top with a big meal out last week, but I have been reasonably active since.

However, I would like to say a huge


to Lord Chubalot, for achieving his target weight - the founder of the Knights of the Round Bottoms, and the first of us to succeed.

I doff my cap to you sir.

Current Weight: 13st 12lb – 194lbs

Week 60

2 lb loss!!


I'm under the 14 stone mark - I'm now 13st 12lb.

That also means that I've crossed the 80lb weight-loss barrier too!

Time to celebrate with a large chocolate fudge cake...

Week 59

Even again.

I can't believe that only 2 slices of cake (on separate evenings) and one lunch out (which was still quite healthy, if on the large size) have prevented me from losing any weight again, so I must conclude that once again it's down to lack of activity.

Fatmammycat has been giving me lots of support and encouragement over the past few months, and it's greatly appreciated. She has also been constantly nagging (in the nicest possible way) for me to get out and exercise. She is, of course, perfectly right and I'm glad she hasn't given up on me. But this is one are that I really struggle with.

I've never been much of a fitness or sports fanatic and have some serious psychological blocks against exercise.

Part of it is laziness, but I don't think it's the whole story. Some of it is to do with the fact that I have managed this far without getting involved in it, and partly it has to do with childhood experiences (see the latest entry on my main blog, PE Teachers Are Demons From Hell). But if I had to sum it up in one overwhelming word, I would have to say "daunting".

Fatmammycat suggests I start with a one-hour brisk walk a day. From her perspective it is nothing more than the next step up from walking to the car. But for me it feels like she's asking me to run a marathon or climb Everest and it fills me with utter dread.

Lord Lessismore has suggested that I get a friend to join me and I could see how that would work. The main problem there is that I don't have any that live closer than 100 miles away.

So I feel completely on my own with this, trying to tackle a demon that has no discernable shape and I don't know how to get a grip on.

It's sunny just now. I think I'll go for a 35 minute walk and think about it.
