|Fried cauliflower rice - what a delicious revelation. Who knew?!|
It has been quite a while since I updated on this matter, but never fear the weight is coming off slowly but surely. Posting every week was sort of boring me, so I stopped. I did not want this blog to become a weight-loss blog.
|Baked vegetables with a sprinkling|
of beef mince for flavour
I had some initial fast losses, which is pretty normal and then slowed right down. I have over the last few weeks focused on some other strategies that still honour being frugal yet not succumbing to the often-too-starchy food types available when being frugal (AKA bread! Delicious home made bread that I cannot control myself eating - sigh).
|Delicious chicken broth seasoned with white pepper and veggie salt.|
Knocking off all bread, eating no sugar and eating the protein portion of my meals first has made a huge difference to how I am actually feeling (weight loss aside).
|Soft boiled eggs for breakfast|
with a freshly brewed long black.
So I weighed in this morning to see how things were going, just to check that we are still slowly incrementally loosing - here tiz.
Start weight: 120.8 kg
Start BMI: 34
Target weight: 79 kg
Weighing in at 115.5 kg
Lost since last weigh-in: 1.6 kg
Total weight lost: 5.3 kg
Current BMI: 33 (still obese!)
My plan has never been to loose this weight quickly (as nice as that would be) as I do not have the discipline for that. As long as every time I weigh myself it is less than last time - even if that is 100 grams. Over a period of 5 years incremental, sustainable loss .... the goal will be achieved. It is a bit like saving money or paying off debt - I just need to be patient and not wish my life away.
So I'll check in again some time or other folks, and keep you updated.
So take care and stay nice folks.
