And back again on a very special day for me smile
After holidays and various celebrations I've gained a pound or two, but hopefully I am in "diet mode" good and proper until November! I weigh Nine Stone Three and three quarter pounds which I am happy about!
Today - 22nd August - always holds a special place in my heart, and in the immediate family. Because twelve years ago, I made my enormous life-changing decision, to change my eating habits. Back then I was fourteen stone ... and more than probably more! - and my quality of life was more or less zero. General aches and pains, rarely a week went by when I didn't visit my doctor, then using a manual wheelchair for getting about on long and short journeys. It couldn't have been easy for Dad to be pushing me, or Mum either. I snacked on pastries, biscuits by the handful and chocolate bars. I must have known I was overweight - I was certainly more than a little depressed - but didn't "want" to do anything about it. Until I had a blood-test to see if that brought up anything - a trial in itself since I was terrified of injections. What the test came back with was seriously scary - I was borderline diabetes and if I didn't stop my "unhealthy eating" almost at once, I would be injecting myself every day.
It was a massive shock to me, Mum and Dad, and the immediate family. But, the next morning, I decided it was going to be a brand new start. All the goodies were taken out of the house and stored outside, in the shed, to remove temptation. And slowly but surely, with determination, the pounds started to fall off. And the beauty of it, is that I don't do a diet as such, I just try and cut down on the treats. Before, I was having "treats" six or seven times a week - these days its maybe three times a week. When there's a family celebration, Easter or Christmas, I eat what I want, but then cut down the rest of the week smile Dad was so proud of my weight loss - as is Mum - but all my friends on Funtrivia have helped me with their support too. Many thanks, one and all xxxxxxxx

I know it's been a "few weeks" since I've posted my weight. I've been either maintaining or losing a quarter of a pound/half a pound. But today, I'm pleased to say I've reached ... EIGHT STONE thirteen pounds and three quarters smile smile smile It's been at least four or five years since I've been in the "eights"! laugh I'm still limiting my "treats" to two/three times a week rather than seven days a week smile but I hope to lose two or three more pounds before December, when I can really enjoy myself until January1 Thanks to all my Funtrivia friends for watching and supporting my weight journey xxx

So, I've just decided to start loosing weight. I finally got the courage together to weigh myself for the first time in years, and I'm starting out at 289... not my proudest moment. For the last week I've been walking every other day, and on the days in between working out my upper body by teaching myself to fight with a quarterstaff. Figured it'd be more fun than 'move the weight from A to B'. I haven't really been at it long enough to see any change, but I figured posting where I'm starting from might force some accountability and help me stick to my routine.

Didn't have access to a scale last week, and having to make an unexpected trip to Missouri, I went up 2.2 (new scale that goes in 0.1 increments instead of 0.5) to sit at 12 st 5.2 pounds.

Was slightly more active (or so I thought), and went up 2.6 to sit at 12 st 9.6 pounds. May have to think about dropping calorie counts back a bit.
