Week 300

0.6lb loss.

Week 300.

Few people are still going with weight-loss blogs this long - either because they've achieved their goals or have given up completely. So why am I still going?

The thing is, I think there's a good chance this is a lifelong thing for me. I don't think I will ever actually get to a point where food is no longer an issue for me. It will always be a struggle on some level or another, so my weight is always likely to bob up and down a bit, depending on my state of mental health.

The function of this blog has always been for me to write down my weight each week so I can either feel a sense of accomplishment if I've lost weight, or have to make a public excuse if I've put it on.

For the foreseeable future I don't see that changing.

Starting Weight: 19st 9lb - 275lbs
Current Weight: 11st 11.6lb - 165.6lbs
Body fat: 21.3%
Total Weight Loss: 109.4lbs

Congrats on 300. I feel the same: the act of logging the number and seeing it in black-and-white makes a difference.

My awareness of my body is at an all-time high. I know if I'm hydrated, if I'm getting enough fibre, and (shock! horror!) how hungry I am.

Anything that helps you know how you feel, or how things really are, is a good thing.

I'm glad you're keeping on. It stirs me to act in my own life.

Harry - I'm quite aware of my body. I just wish I didn't crave most of the time. Part of the problem is I also suffer from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. And when we are tired, we naturaly crave sweet things to give us a boost. Having CFS means I feel tired, and thus cravings, more often.

Morgen - if I don't keep on, then it all falls apart. It's like having a garden - you need to keep tending it to get it looking how you want. If you leave it, the default will turn it into something else. It's like that with me and food.
