Shedding a few pounds

Time for Change

I've never really cared much about my weight. Over the years I've watched it gradually climb. I'd always weigh myself from time to time, and my internal "that's a bit much" limit was 100kg (15st.10lb).

Earlier this year I hit the 100kg mark again. To be fair I was never much below it anyway.

In the latter part of 2012 year my mindset started to change. I wasn't actively trying to lose weight but I was starting to think about it more seriously. Around the end of February I hit 101.2kg. I decided it was time to do something about it.

Increasing weight

The new regime

One thing I did not want to do was go on a crash diet; starving myself, being miserable and potentially damaging my health were not things I wanted to subject myself to. It was important to me that I eased into a new lifestyle that suited me and also helped buck the trend.
