It turns out that you can you can stick to your eating and exercise plan and still not lose weight. And that can be immensely frustrating. The scale is a liar!   For the last three days I’ve weighed in at 180 lbs, so you’d be forgiven for wondering whether I’ve lost my enthusiasm or maybe […]

Yesterday was a good day for diet adherence. I ate four pieces of fruit between lunchtime and dinner even though I had access to chocolate and a whole host of other great tasting–but calorie dense–food. I made a trip to the supermarket late morning and finished around midday… just at the point when my stomach […]

Yesterday was a stinker of a day. The sort that might drive a person straight to the chocolate cake. It started with me having a minor traffic accident on the way in to work. No one was injured, but it was a pain to have to deal with. And whilst my workday started ok, it […]

It would be crazy to eat lasagne and cheesecake two days in a row… wouldn’t it? Maybe not if you hate to see food go to waste. Not everybody has a bottomless pit of money to throw at their diet. After Sunday’s family gettogether there was a lot of food left over and I wasn’t […]

  As usual my Sunday weight is up on my Saturday weight. Yesterday I was 180.4 lbs, which is my lowest of the year, but today the scale reflects the extra meal I ate yesterday (as planned). Although this is my official weigh in day. I confess I’m much more interested in tracking Saturday weight, […]

180.4 lbs represents a 4 lb loss over 3 weeks. At just over a pound per week, that’s pretty good, and exactly what I was aiming for. We’re talking about 500 calories per day, which still gives me plenty of food, so I rarely feel like I’m missing out. I did my body weight exercises […]

Yet another crazy busy day. I got up late this morning. It was 6.20 before I stopped hitting the snooze button every five minutes from 5.30. Since then I’ve been on the go most of the day. I walked the dogs first thing and went to work. I ended up working two hours overtime to […]
