Week 106

1.4lb gain.

Aw shite.

Well the only consolation with the weight gain this week is at least it came from a nice weekend away with my wife - coffees & shortbread in the afternoons, a meal out in the evening and a full English fry-up for breakfast.

But now the excuses are really all used up and I hope that next week will show a change in the direction of my weight.

Week 105

1.2lb gain.

Considering it was my daughter's birthday on Wednesday, and we were out for a big family meal on Thursday, and I was eating popcorn at the cinema on Friday, and my wife decided to make a fruit crumble for pudding last night because my stepson is down visiting, it's hardly surprising I put on what I'd lost the week before.

I'm out for a meal today too, but after that there are no excuses on the horizon, so it should be back to normal.

I am now past the 2nd anniversary (15th Feb) of the change to our eating lifestyle, and as promised, below are some photos that document the weight loss. It wasn't easy finding them because I'm usually the one behind the camera.

The first was taken in January 2005, one month before we began.

The second was taken in June 2005, when 4 months had passed and you can see the difference was quite noticeable. As with any change like this, you lose the weight quickest at the beginning, and at this point I had already lost over 40lbs

The third photo was taken at my father's birthday at the end of last September. Because of Christmas and various birthdays I'm only about 7lbs lighter now, so there's no noticeable difference in the face. However, I can wear my 34inch waist jeans now, whereas back then I was still wearing the 36s.

Changing faces

Week 104

1.2lb loss!

I'm happy with that. It takes me to within half a pound of my pre-feastmas lowest point of 178.2lbs.

In 3 days time it will be the 2nd anniversary of when we began the change in eating.

When I add up all the times I've put on a pound or two (especially over 2 xmases) and had to take it off again, I find I've actually lost about 121lbs in the past 2 years - several pounds more than the hundredweight of the title of this blog. However because all these little pounds add up to about 25lbs, my nett loss to date is 96.4lbs.

Next week will be just past the 2nd anniversary, so I'll see if I can dig out some then & now photos.

Starting Weight: 19st 9lb - 275lbs
Current Weight: 12st 10.6lb - 178.6lbs

Week 103


To be honest, I'm a little disappointed in that. There have been struggles throughout the week, but I've pretty much had things under control. I was hoping to have continued the trend of the past couple of weeks, but apparently not.

Current Weight: 12st 11.8lb – 179.8lbs
