Fuzzy's Really Wild and Exciting Weight Loss Diary

S: 10st11lb C: 10st11lb G: 9st7lb Loss: 0st0lb(0%)
Well, its probably not really wild and exciting. In fact, I'd quite like it if it was nice, steady, and an unevenful weight loss. But life's not really like that, is it?

So here's my stats.
I'm female, 35 years old (goodness, thats scary!), 5 ft 5 inches tall and currently weigh: 10 stone, 10.5 pounds. Or 150.5 pounds. Thats 68.3kg, for those who prefer their figures in kilos (I prefer mine in slim trousers and a fitted teeshirt, but I might get arrested for that at the moment).

I want to weigh 9.5 stone. Or 133 pounds (60kg).
So I need to lose 17.5 lbs (8kgs)

I'd like to be there for the 20th of June. Thats 59 days away, and thats 8 weeks, 3 days. If I lost a nice simple 2lbs a week, I'd pretty much manage it.

How hard can it be? A few years back I did Lighterlife / Cambridge and threw off a few stone, but I've gained this weight and I want rid, and it feels important to me that I do it by sensible eating and exercise. When I was skinner, I actually ran a marathon, and I'm going to run next years London Marathon, so I need to exercise anyway.

I want to lose the weight because I want to be able to run better, and I want to have a good time on holiday - we're going to be doing a lot of hiking in California and theres no way I can really enjoy it if I go at this weight. Also, in Sept / Oct time I will be undergoing a fitness test and a medical examination for a job I really want to do, and if I'm too heavy and unfit, I will fail, and that job won't be mine! And I want to get back into my nicer clothes, not my men's teeshirts and baggy, illfitting jeans like I am now.

I'm looking at putting in about 1200 - 1500 calories a day, and running 6 miles every other day (thats 4 times a week). And I'm going to try and post in here every day, to keep myself accountable, even if it's just me reading it.

I'm only going to weigh myself once a week though; I know from experience it can really get me down if I do it more often that that.

START OF WEEK 0 MILES: 0 (so far, first run tonight!)

Oops, sorry DQ!

Well, its half two and a lovely day outside. Shame I'm stuck at work! :cry:

Its so tempting not to go for a run when I get home. I really do need to but I can feel myself thinking up excuses - mostly along the lines of "oooooh, I can go tomorrow.....". But it's always tomorrow, isn't it? Need to get going, especially if I'm going to make my goal weight in my goal time....

Bad news has seen me spend the last 20 minutes sniffling to myself, and feeling headachy. Guess I didnt' need much excuse not to go for that run after all, but I've got a dog, and he has to have a walk, so I'll make sure its a good long walk. Not as good for me as a run, but better than going home via the shop and buying ice-cream, right?

Thanks Jane, its appreciated :)

I didn't go for a run but I did go for a walk. I ended up having hot dogs and chips, and some wine, so pfff, not very 'good' but I enjoyed it, and while I know that food shouldn't be seen as something to cheer yourself with but I'm not quite that good yet.

Its not as hot today, and I am definitely going to go for a run. The bad news I had yesterday hasn't gone away but theres nothing I can do about either way except wait and see, and I can either wait and get thinner or wait and get fatter...and I know which I'd prefer to do!

So, I did go for a run today, although the other half had to yell at me a bit to make me go.
I was pleased I did, too, I could feel a difference between how I ran today and how I ran three weeks ago. I'm still really more jogging than running, but I'm not worried about speed right now. It took me 1hr10mins to do six miles - a bit shocking really when I used to be able to do the same route in about 50 minutes, but then I am substantially heavier!

My food intake wasn't too bad either. Not a bad day; I'm quite pleased with myself. I have drank the last of my Options Hot Chocolate though, and I won't be buying any more of that. I have a terrible tendency to drink lots of it. It might only be 40 calories a cup, but if you have 8 cups in a day....eeek. Moderation with it just doesn't work, so I shall instead ban it from my kitchen :)

No run tomorrow (its just every other day, so tomorrow is long dog walk), but one on Saturday. Go me! :D
