Phase 2

Jul 15, 2013 - 0 comments

My initial target was 164 which would mean not being classed as overwieght. However now this is close I seem to have lost imPetus. I am therefore going to enter a more challenging goal of 147. This is the weight that, at 23, was the weight at which I used to start dieting.
Things are very stressful and I have given into wine and chocolate. I must get back on track.

Where I am

May 01, 2013 - 2 comments

Blood pressure okay at home but still too high at doctors
158/96 and 138/86, I think.
I have, for the most part, given up meat.
I still crave salt occasionally.
I need to get into the habit of drinking more water.
I have cut out butter completely.
I hace started drinking again so need to curb severely and maybe limit to certain days.
Hand in hand with drinking I have slipped back into eating chocolate in the evening.
I limit bread to breakfast-time only.
At work I only have fruit for lunch.
I never eat sweet biscuits.
I still have some things containing sugar. E.g. cocoa at work and sauce for stir frys.
I have limited my consumption of medjools, for now.
If I want non-vegan I generally have sardines or egg.
I take DHA 2-3 a day.
I take B12 most days.
I take Vitamin D some days.

Why I plateaued out

Mar 09, 2013 - 1 comments






I was stuck on 13 stone for 10 days. I am just creeping down again now. Yesterday I analysed what I have been eating and found I was deluding myself. Nuts and medjool dates may be healthy but also very fattening. I was amazed at the calorific value of the dates particularly. I am now being good and only eating a couple of dates instead of eight. (8medjools=400 cals!!!!). I am stopping the nuts altogether until I feel safe that I am on the right track again.
