Week 69

1lb loss!

Another surprise loss this one, as at least twice over this past week I've had a buffet-style dinner that was high in processed foods and I've definitely over-eaten. The problem with a pick 'n' mix type of meal is that I invariable pick a lot more because I can have seconds and even thirds. Unlike a standard plate of food, I can't "see" how much I've eaten. And as I have a delayed off-switch that doesn't tell me I've had enough to eat until an hour later I end up feeling bloated and uncomfortable by the time my stomach catches up with my eyes.

So why have I still managed to lose a pound? In fact, how come I've been losing weight over the past few weeks when I've felt I probably shouldn't?

The only thing that I can think that I've been doing differently over the past couple of weeks is that I've become more regular with my Tai Chi. During the winter I can go a week at a time without practicing Tai Chi, but with the great weather we've been having recently I've pretty much been doing it every day. Maybe that's what's making the difference.

Statistical Significance – I have now lost over 40 kilos

Starting Weight: 19st 9lb – 275lbs
Current Weight: 13st 4lb – 186lbs
KoTRB Weight Lost: 24lbs
Total Weight Loss: 89lbs

Congratulations. You seem slimmer in your new photo.

Thanks Arlene. The last photo was taken last summer, but the latest one was taken the other evening. I've lost about 40 pounds in between.

Well done! Especially with becoming more active. It really does help.

Kim Ayres said...

Thanks Sir Squishy!

FMC - That's the odd thing. I've been less active, other than the Tai Chi, which is a slow movement and not about the opposite end of the scale to an aerobic exercise.
