I'm Angry Enough to Change Myself

I Guess I Wasn't Angry Enough!: Month One, Day 1 Re-Dux

It has been a while. Much water has passed under the bridge--and through my system.

I went to the doctor last week--Thursday 15 November--which is a year, 2 months and 15 days later only to have gone, according to the doctor's (electronic) scales, up to 111.4kg. This was strange, because I had been weighing myself (and tracking by way of a chart), and I was definitely less than 110kg. I had managed to go down to 105 kg at the beginning of the year, and had predicted going down to 100kg by June this year.

Alas, it wasn't to be. Apart from sporadic illnesses, I got complacent--and I'm pretty much back to square one.

I guess the import of all this is the blatant honesty I think I need to get my weight down.

I think it's important to keep it simple now. I don't need a gym. The folks purchased a few months ago equipment (arms, whatnot) that is much more than a gym for the home. So if I'm still this weight, it's down to ME. They exercise quite regularly, and I'm always making excuses.

Maybe I'mnot cut out for exercises. Maybe I am.

What I do know is that I grew hopelessly lazy, and took advantage of the rain to say that I would exercise later.

I know better now. I'm necessarily taking a laid-back approach to this weight loss, whilst contemporraneously getting serious about it.

Immediate STOPS:
  • no late-night nibbling before bed

  • no walking and eating!
  • (I like my cashews after a day's work!)

    TO DO (plenty more!!)
  • Take my dog for brisk walks at night

  • Walk more briskly

  • wake up at 5 am to exercise

  • resume sit-ups / pressups

  • drink at least 3 litres of water every day

  • eat everything in moderation!

    Let's start with that and get back to see how far I've gone.

    It starts today--and right now!!
