Okay, so a diet update.
Been on target all week. Under 1700 every day and don't feel particularly hungry whatsoever.
I have perhaps eaten too much salt so far though. Need to cut it down for the second half of the week.
So far the week is going good. Don't see why there shouldn't be a 2lb loss this week, at least.
I'm going to keep my diet very low salt and drink a lot of water for the next few days.

you should (if you so wish) add these mini goals to your signature - something to be proud of when you get there. i would add mine but i have apparently reached my character limit for my sig, not sure what im gonna do when i reach another goal! x
Yeh I think I will add some things like that to it. I would love a BMI of under 35 this year. I need to work on a nice long list of goals like you have haha

Still worrying about my general salt intake this week, it is probably gunna come back to bite me. Even though I have been drinking gallons of water. As long as I haven't gained I will be content - even though I was pretty much 100% the whole week.
Nothing else to report really Will post result tomorrow.
Well done! You seem to be doing really well !
I'm really impressed with your general good outlook on it all and determination. Definitely inspiring. Well done on hitting your first major goal!
As for salt - is there any way that you could start looking into salt contents of things along side the calorie counting? Make it roughly a maximum of 6g per day.

I don't go over 6g, but I still think 4g is too much for me.

Salt becomes diluted and expelled through the system provided you drink enough water! If you ever have a day where you feel that you may have eaten a tad too much salt, just drink more water than you usually would in proportion to the extra salt, it will be fine! Good luck, hope you've lost!

Im definitely drinking plenty of water, so the salt shouldn't be a problem.
Thanks a lot bud, I hope too!
Ah well, regardless of what the scales say, this week has been a good week. This week I could feel myself getting fitter and stronger, which was a great feeling.

Hmmm I gained 1.4lb
I weighed myself at 299.4, kind of disappointed. I was good the whole week, exercised three times and generally felt good. Was under or around 1700 calories to entire week.
Well at least I didn't go above 300lb, that would have really been awful.
It could have just been retained water, which I was worrying about. May weigh myself again tomorrow and see if I get the same result.
Have to say cant understand the gain given you've stuck to plan and exercise? Have you tried an NSV method of measuring loss? A belt or trousers that are looser? The belt you can do up a firer notch or trousers that are loose?
Also are you weighing at roughly the same time of day on a Sunday? There can be a pound or so difference from weighing first thing in the morning to the afternoon and even more in the evening. No idea why but I have experience this myself a serial weighed!
I certainly feel better, and I know I am fitter. Which is why I am not taking the gain too much to heart.

I am going to drink plenty of water today, and weigh myself tomorrow. There must be something in my body that is making me heavier, most likely weight weight.
