Been good today, stayed under 1700 calories without exercise.
Just hoping for at least a pound drop this week.
So I weighed myself today, I just wanted to see how I was doing.
All I can say is that it was very good, and hopefully it will be even better come Sunday!
Will post weigh-in results sometime tomorrow. Happy Sunday to you all!
At long last... I finally dropped a good amount of weight. The plateau is officially broken, and I can start losing weight again at a good pace.
This week, I weighed in at 298.0lbs - losing 3.4lbs. This is just... a massive day for me. I am now under the 300lb barrier, which was a short-term goal of mine when I started. Now I think the weight will be dropping off. Part of the new me has been born today, and it is a very special day. I am proud of myself.
Seeing that I have lost 20.4lbs now, suddenly it seems massive. By Feb 2014, it will be "120.4lbs dropped" :P
All I did differently this week was limit myself to 1700 a day. This week was sort of an experiment really... I exercised twice so I didn't do any hardcore physical activity consistently.
Also I kept track of every single calorie that went into my body, on MyFitnessPal. I can definitely see the benefits of this app now, and I think it will prove very useful in the many weeks to come.
And like always, have a good week people!
I knew that would give you a loss! You don't have to exercise like a loony yet. 3.4 lbs is brill!! Keep doing what you did this week and I bet you have further good losses
I'd worry about exercise when you stop losing.
You're doing what I'm doing - and I'm losing on it so no reason for you not to either!
Getting to under 300 is such a confidence boost for you. It may only be 2 under but you are no longer in the 2's! Enjoy the feeling xx

Brilliant. Into the 2's - there's no stopping you & before you know it people will start to notice the change in your weight and that helps you along as well. All the compliments become quite addictive and motivate you to keep going. All you have to do is repeat the last few months five times - that seems like hardly any time at all.
Have a great Sunday.
Yay, that's great Alex, glad you're getting good results! xx
I am not fussing over exercise too much. But exercising is something that I generally want to do. It makes me feel good afterwards, so I will keep exercising weekly. Being out of the 300-zone is an amazing feeling indeed

Anyway my motivation is higher than ever right now, cannot wait to start the next week.
Yes it was a great sight after several weeks of small losses, and some gains.

I know it is a bit far-fetched, and perhaps "rushing" it a bit too much. It is just a goal though. 3lb a week for 10 weeks would mean I would be 268lb. That is nearly half-way through to losing 128lb.
Still I will keep doing what I did this week. I may have found my recipe for success.
- Low fat, low sugars, low carbs. But still some of them.
- Exercise 3 times a week at least. More if I feel like I need too.
- Drink minimum 2litres of water a day.
Pretty generic plan for the next 10 weeks, but it will do the job.
As far as permanent lifestyle changes, I think I have conquered a few so far.
- Drinking water is a part of my life now. I see myself drinking water regularly for the rest of my life. I feel the benefits, and I find it REALLY tasty now.
- My mindset has completely changed in terms of food habits. Like I have said many times, I don't know how I lived like I used too. When I think about my diet back then, I actually find it revolting that I ate like that each and everyday.
Those are the two main permanent changes to my lifestyle so far. I now know for sure that drinking water and not abusing carbs is something I can live with happily.
Again, I wish you all a good week. Will check out some of your diaries tonight!
