Loosing weight slowly plateau

Weight loss update

In the last 4 weeks I've went from weighing 105.3 kilo's to 103 kilo's. That's a loss of 2.3 kilo's which is roughly half a kilo per week. I'm finding even though it may seem like a slow way to loose weight, it is a realistic pace for me personally and one I know I can stick to for life. For instance, I still enjoy one night out per week to my favorite local harbour side restaurant here in Mackay, Australia. Plus, one Sunday lazy lunch per week of fish and chips at the Marina in Mackay. The point being, the other 95% of the time I eat healthily and to controlled calorie servings.

Weight loss plateau

Similar to many women, I find I have a weight loss plateau 2 weeks leading up to menstruation. This is something I've simply gotten used to and I dont' let it effect my overall eating plan. I always find at the other end of the scale, I tend to loose 2-3 kilo's the first couple of weeks afterwards. Therefore, it does balance out for the month as a whole. The main thing, is to know your own body and not to give up when you're on a plateau.

difference loosing 14 kilos / 30.80 pounds makes to life

Nearly time to buy new clothes and refresh my wardrobe

When I first purchased the pants shown in the photographs below, I was 117 kilo's (257.40 pounds). Since then I've lost 14 kilo's or 30.80 pounds. I'm now starting to notice the weight loss in a lot of different ways. For example, my clothes are now a lot bigger.

I find when playing golf (a favorite personal sport), I can now pick the ball up out of the hole a lot easier. I also don't tend to be physically tired by the 12th these days. When I go for a daily walk out at the local marina, I can now easily do the full hour and not cough from asthma afterwards. I enjoy photography as a hobby and can now take some fantastic close up shots of flowers, bugs and mushrooms by easily getting on ground level or laying on my stomach. 6 months ago at 117 kilo's, this would have been hard work and most of my images were taken from a standing view point.

Yes, life seems a whole lot easier without the extra 14 kilo's to lugg around. Anyway, I must go and buy some new pants :)

Start eating breakfast to lose weight

Much to my delight, I jumped on the scales yesterday and found I'd lost another kilo without the usual 2 week plateau. I havn't upped the exercise at all. I still play golf a couple of times per week and walk every other morning for an hour at a time. However, I did start eating a small single serving of yoghurt with some bran thrown in, for breakfast each morning. I've never been a breakfast eater, instead having my first meal of the day at lunch time.

Last week I read an article that said eating breakfast will kick start your metabolism for the day. Otherwise, your body will go into starvation mode and you'll find it harder to burn off calories you've eaten for the day. So far, this seems to be true. I'm now down to 102 kilograms or 224.40 pounds. One step closer to my overall weight loss goal.
