Pretty much everyone who is reading this has likely seen some of the vaccination stuff I’ve been doing. I don’t want to write about that again, at least for now, because this is not a vaccination blog. That wouldn’t be sufficiently chaotic. However, I will ask that you go to http://redd.it/wd18j and vote up my article. It’s getting a fair bit of attention, but a bit more won’t go astray.
This post is just a quick diet note. In the first, admittedly fairly strict, two weeks of the diet I lost 4 kilos. That’s half of what I want to lose, and I never got hungry. I assume that I ate fewer calories and that some of the weight loss is fluid, but it’s pretty surprising to me. I ate plenty.
It’s interesting. I’ve spent a long time intending to do something about my slowing increasing weight. I’d look at the scale in the morning and tell myself, in one of a range of tones of voice, that it’s time. At any time I could have done something about it. But I didn’t. And now I’m doing something about it. So what’s the difference between then and now. Have I suddenly discovered a discipline gene?
I don’t think there is anything different. In the past I put more energy into excuses and at the moment I’m not. Nothing has changed except that now I’m losing weight and before I wasn’t. Nothing. And yet whatever that nothing is I’d love to be able to bottle it.
I’m sure you know what I mean.
By the way, my BMI is now 24, safely in the normal range. My beach ball is intact, though tending towards basketball. I’m sticking with this regime until I hit 75kg. Then I’ll have to figure out how to stay there.
