October round-up

As I started my latest new weight reduction plan at the beginning of the month which is now ending, I thought it would be a good time to see how things are going.

Weight

October 1: 224.4 pounds (16 stone 0.4 pounds, 101.8kg)
October 31: 218.2 pounds (15 stone 8.2 pounds, 99.0kg)

Difference: 6.2 pounds (2.8kg)

That’s nearly 1½ pounds per week, which is a good start.

Eating

I’ve got back into the habit of having a sandwich and some fruit for lunch rather than a sandwich, two sausage rolls and some chocolate. I suspect that most of the weight loss is coming from eliminating those extra calories. I’ve also managed to get my general chocolate eating back to my monthly box from the Chocolate Tasting Club, and an occasional bar of something less exotic[1]. That’s another pile of extra calories eliminated.

Exercise

Doing better at this – I’m managing to walk to or from work roughly half the time. I’ll try to build that up a bit more, as I do need to be more active.

Unless I lose the plot, I’ll do a similar report at the end of next month…

[1] I did succumb to the lure of the recently revived Wispa bar yesterday. Nice.
