Another weigh in day rolls around and I was a little disappointed with the result today. I weighed in at 91.0 kilos but felt I had lost more than that. My pants seem very loose and the belt has to be tightened at least a full notch from last week, but it is a loss of 1.3 kilos and a great result nevertheless.
This is a really positive result in the right direction and I am still on track to meet the mini goal of being below 90 kilos by October 1.
Overall since August 9, 2007, I have shed 6.2 kilograms or 11.44 lbs. Pretty good weight loss results for a 5 week period. Let's just recap on what changes I have made to lose those kilos.
Keep calories consumed to around 1500 or under per day.
Do moderate exercise 2 to 3 times per week of at least 30 minutes duration.
Made a hobby of photography that takes me out and about for 2 or 3 photo shoots per week.
Those changes to my lifestyle can't be called drastic changes. What it does do is highlight the need to eat sensibly, stay on track and stick with your resolve to lose weight. Just small changes can bring about a weight loss and over time the weight that comes off becomes very satisfying figures, both in terms of the weight lost and the benefit of a good looking body.
My belly doesn't look like a basketball anymore. It's still like a big pot belly but has lost that blown up bloated look. My clothes are getting loose and I feel so much better and can do things like tying up my shoe laces, washing my feet in the shower and getting up off the ground so much easier already.
I am really excited to think what I will feel like in 6 months from now. I hope you are excited also about your progress on the road to a slimmer, fitter, better looking you.
