Week 150

4.2lb gain

Back over the 180lbs mark. Still, despite some serious over indulges this week, I have still been aware of trying to limit the damage and I could easily have put on more.

We all knew no one was going to come out of Feastmas unscathed, but I've managed to remain under 13 stone, so I take this as a triumph of sorts.

Wishing you all the very best for the New Year!

Week 149 - Merry Feastmas!

0.2lb loss!

The fact that I haven't put on 3lbs this week has somewhat astounded me, given my reaction to unsettling news last week, and various pre-feastmas treats cropping up all over the place.

However, I am still mindful of a certain level of damage limitation where, for example, I decide not to have the 3rd piece of shortbread, even though it's available. If I put on 5lbs over the next week or 2, it's still better than putting on 10lbs.

Still, I'm toying with the idea of creating a new strategy to cope with Feastmas: I'm going to speed up my metabolism by eating too much...

Wishing you all, all the best. May you enjoy your food without too much impact. Make a deal with yourself that you will only over-indulge in the stuff that's really worth it. If you're going to put on a pound, make it worthwhile, and not on some junk thing that you either don't like, or don't even notice you're eating.

Have a good one!

Week 148

0.2lb gain

I can live with that - I had a huge meal out last week, and the little extras are starting to slip in before Feastmas really kicks in.

From now on it's into damage limitation mode for the next 2 and a half weeks.

I will still keep posting as I think it's disasterous to just take your eye off the ball altogether.

Week 147

1.4lb loss!

Reeling it back in...

I didn't get the chance to post yesterday as I was 120 miles away having an xmas lunch with friends. Which will probably show up next week...

With Feastmas looming, the question is how much I can limit the damage over the next 3 weeks?

Week 146

2.6lb gain


It has been such a tough week. In fact the past fortnight has been intense, leading me to feel even more tired and emotionally vulnerable.

Since last Monday I can easily look at the large slice of cake at the last philosophy class of the term I taught, plus one night where 4 small squares of chocolate turned into a 150g bar, and a litre tub of chocolate ice cream disappeared over 2 nights.

Combined with the less activity I'm capable of these days, it's unsurprising there should be such a jump.

Unfortunately this now puts me at the heaviest I've been since April.
