I’ve still managed to hang on to some vestige of a plot, so here’s this month’s round-up, which is becoming a regular feature.
December 1: 216.0 pounds (15 stone 6.0 pounds, 98.0kg)
December 31: 215.2 pounds (15 stone 5.2 pounds, 97.6kg)
Difference: 0.8 pounds (0.4kg), which is not very good at all. On the other hand, if I regard today’s weight as a temporary aberration, and use the lowest weight of the month instead, which was 212.8 pounds (15 stone 2.8 pounds, 96.5kg) just a couple of days ago, the difference is a more impressive 3.2 pounds (1.5kg). That’s still a bit less than my rough target of a pound a week, but not too bad.
I’ve been keeping up the sandwich and fruit for lunch routine when I’m at work. Sometimes the sandwich is a slightly larger one from Subway, but I’m generally being well-behaved. I’ve also reduced the amount I eat at weekends, when despite being generally less active, I was eating more than during the week. I didn’t really overdo it much at Christmas, either. The other thing I’m trying to do is keep my alcohol consumption down.
No change from last month, really. I’ve still been walking to and from work at least half the time. This is mostly walking to work and getting the bus home, but I’m managing to persuade myself to walk home a wee bit more.
Despite being away for a week, and only making a few posts during that time, I’ve kept up the higher levels of posting that I started in October. In fact, this month is the busiest one ever, with this post taking the total to 97.
