I’m on a 13 week diet to get into (a less round) shape for a family wedding. Click here for a quick explanation of what and why: but the short of it is this: having a Body Mass of over 30 (= “Obese Class 1”) in a suit at a wedding in the sun in Spain is not a good look!
This is quite serious, now. The first three weeks I lost weight, no problems. Then for the last four weeks I have flat-lined: I couldn’t have maintained my weight more exactly if I had tried. But this is no good! I have been eating a lot of veg. But even though I’ve changed my diet, I haven’t changed my mindset. And without changing that mindset which craves junk, I’ll never stop myself snacking.
Gonna have to get serious now. No more daily after-work bottle of beer. No more bickies. No more chocks. I’ve got to go hard core, cold turkey. After a few weeks without crap, you miss it less. Plus, starting to cycle again wouldn’t hurt; note that I lost the most weight when I had weeks doing a lot of exercise. I sense a connection…
