I’ve rebooted my strategy to getting into shape: see here for the outline. Basically, instead of setting myself weekly hard-and-fast goals, the idea is to set monthly non-binding goals. This means I won’t theoretically get downhearted when I have a wobbly week as I will be able to catch up the following week. I have set myself the goal of losing 7lb a month. I was therefore hoping to get down to 17st 7lb (245lb) by the end of January.
The only change to my routine for January was the lack of mince pies and sherry! And I ended up at 17st 9lb. A five pound loss is not bad. Instead of now saying I need to lose 9lbs by the end of February — the monthly 7lb + the 2lb I did not lose last month — I am simply resetting and saying I need to lose 7lb. This prevents a backlog of unfulfilled weight loss goals which I have found so discouraging.
Therefore, by the end of February, I hope to get down to 17st 2lb (240lb). My plan of action is the simple stuff: cut the wintery comfort snacks down.
