Week 280

1lb loss!

Phew! After last week's unexpected gain I had a moment of fear that it was going to unravel. However, it was just a blip and if I'd lost 0.4lbs last week and another 0.4lbs this week then I would have ended up in the same place and felt quite content.

Week 279

0.2lb gain :(

OK, I know 0.2lbs is little more than the weight of a good fart, but unfortunately it breaks the 15 week run I was whooping with joy about last week.

I really cannot think of anything I have done differently this week, so I'll just have to put it down to a blip and hope I continue in the right direction next week

Starting Weight: 19st 9lb - 275lbs
Current Weight: 12st 2lb - 170lbs
Body fat: 21.7%
Total Weight Loss: 105lbs

Week 278 - under 170lbs

1.6lb loss!

This is a bigger loss than expected, but then the thing is always to look at the trend in preference to the individual weeks.

And the trend is, over the past 10 weeks I've lost 9.2lbs. But the main thing is I've been consistently losing something every week for 15 weeks in a row, and that accumulates.

My 34" jeans are no longer tight and my baggy shirts are becoming rather ridiculously large.

At some point I am going to have to go out and buy some clothes that actually fit, rather than drape. But to be honest, I have no idea where to begin.

As I got larger, my clothes choice was dictated by what I could buy that was large enough to fit. And as I've been coming down, other than jeans and underwear, I've carried on wearing the same clothes.

I still haven't really accepted the idea that I can in fact walk into any high street shop now and find clothes that fit. But I've never been a fashionista, so actually have no idea what would suit me.

Week 277

0.4lb loss

Although I still have at least 13lbs to lose before I would stop being "overweight" and into the "normal" range, at this stage, every loss feels like an unexpected bonus.

Last time I was below 175lbs I just considered myself in maintenance mode, but I'm begining to think a couple more pounds loss is still likely

Body fat: 22.8%
Total Weight Loss: 103.6lbs
