One thing to come out of this, I'm considering moving my goal a bit. I was looking to get to 16 stone which is still overweight for me really. But lately I've been mulling over:
1. get to 16 stone and maintain
2. get to 16 stone and come up the plans, so lose a bit more and maintain at whetever I come out at
3. get to 15 stone and maintain
4. get to 15 stone and then come up the plans
Still got a while to consider my options. I think I'll see how I feel in a few weeks
Good! I bet he has a whopping loss for his first week, and that'll help spur him on.
Big thing for me is the lack of 'temptational situations'; I lost touch with most of my friends and only get to keep up with them on t'internet. And most of my colleagues are 120 miles away so there's no chance of a swift half after work, and there isn't a lot of 'going down the pub' etc. Plus I don't drink anyway, so that's no booze, and no cheeky kebab/pizza/parmo on the way home either, and I think this has gone a long way to keeping me on the straight and narrow.
