This weeks increase of 1kg makes it clear that I am putting too many calories into a large hole with too few calories being discarded from a smaller hole :-[

A serious effort is needed to give visible results so here is the plan,arrived at after careful consideration over the last couple of days.

1. Get a sports bra to control recently developed man-boobs when going up & down the stairs to use the bathroom

2. Wear a smock(must get one with 3 pockets on the back) to disguise the 24 weeks pregnant waist profile.

3. Cut out bread,biscuits,crisps,vanilla slices & other anti-smoking substitutes & guilty pleasures.I think I may have broken the habit after 10 years.

4. Eat more fruit as snacks using the grazing method of combating hunger instead of 3 meals a day plus rubbish referred to in item 3.

5. Alter habits & routines to make more time available for exercise so that I can instigate an exercise programme

6. Cycle & walk more on short journeys.

I must admit that I find any attempt at dieting,however casual,extremely difficult & a severe test of will-power:so much so that I consider that I had less difficulty giving up smoking than I do with not eating the biscuits & vanilla slices that I am so fond of.

The most frustrating aspect is that I did lose 5kg over a period of Jan to Dec a couple of years ago with very little effort & now struggle to achieve the same results.Perhaps some new scales is the answer,from tha same company that made my spirit level with the bubble painted onto the glass ;)

Feel free to add any constructive comment or suggestions.

I would suggest WeightWatchers.  The support you get from a group is quite important I think.  Plus WeightWatchers is medically approved, which is vital, and they won't allow you to lose to much to quickly.  WW is about thcanging eating habits as much as anything.

Plus they do 'men only' groups - unfortunately, there isn't one near me.  Although the ladies are very supportive and weigh in is like being surrounded by a crowd of supportive mother hens!   ;D

I can just imagine it  ;D

86 kg for me today  :)

That's 6 kg down from January. This is despite regular gym attendance, plenty of protein, and noticeably (well, to me anyway) bigger legs. Mainly from simply being a little more conscious of what I eat, portion control, and spending a bit more time hungry.

All rather pointless until I give up smoking though  :-[

The layout has gone pear-shaped for reasons which are beyond me :-[ so I have put yesterday's weight in the "latest" line at the end.
The loss has not yet occurred again. :(

:-) I had a similar find this morning - 84.7, down from 92kg in January. I'm trying to stay more active, in addition to the cycling (gym, climbing, taking the stairs instead of the lifts, etc) but mostly I think it's down to having broken my brownie habit.

Regard it as an investment because when you give up smoking you will almost certainly put on a bit of weight. The trick is to cut out the fags and remain below what you were on 1/1/08. Result!

If you're aware and watchful of what you eat/drink before you give up the tabs then you much less likely to put on the pounds when you do give up.

And I can't say enough about the phrase "and spending a bit more time hungry". As I'm sure you know Sgt Pluck, it works a treat if you don't over-compensate when you finally do eat.

Mine's coming off quite nicely now too.  77.5Kg today and I started the year at 84.  Would like to end up at 70ish in due course, but 75 will be a big milestone as that's the best I achieved last year...

It was my weigh in last night.  Only 1/2lb down this week...  :(

That'll teach me to pig out last weekend.  I blame my 8 year old niece - it was her birthday party.

I'm 71.3kg.  Should lose a bit more this weekend. I think going under 70kg could be taking it too far.
