- Weight @ WW: 139 kg (ate just before weigh in, shoes, keys, wallet, coins, first day of large water intake etc)
- Weight @ Home: 137.5 kg (so personal scales are 1.5 kg out from WW scales)
- Next WW goal weight: 125.1 (-13.9 kg)
- Next personal WW goal weight: 134 kg (-5 kg)
- Exercise goal: 3 gardening sessions of at least an hour each, and housework of around 8 hours (it really takes that long) (0 hours of exercise so far this week)
Well, it’s done. I’m a member of Weight Watchers … again. If only losing weight was as easy as going to McDonalds.
I was a good boy today; I ate:
- a tomato and ham on brown bread without marg (4 points) 2 cereal
- tuna salad for lunch (no dressing) (1 point)
- apple (1 point)
- plain hamburger with egg and pineapple (10 points) = at least 2 cereal, plus lots of saturated fats (bad)
- 2 steamed dim sims (4 points)
~ 20 points or thereabouts. I have 23-27 to burn each day, but as 10 of those were oily / greasy, I’m not fussed about the missing 3 points.
I’ve drunk about 2 litres of various fluids today, and it’s hard doing it properly. So almost the quintessential WW day.
Sat through the leader talking up carbs. Interesting. Once I’ve lost a bit of weight, I might experiment with differing levels of carbs and see if there’s any differences for me. I know I have a glacial metabolism, so anything that slows down weight loss is out as far as I’m concerned. At least we got the talk about low GI foods. Still – they want us to have five cereals a day or at least five points from cereals. I have at least 60 weeks on this program ahead of me, plenty of time to conduct experiments.
Might start with porridge. I love porridge and it’s low GI … as long as I don’t toss sugar on it.
Things I’m going to miss:
- Big breakfasts at La Dolce Vita
- Pancakes with maple syrup on a regular basis
- Belgian Beer Cafe’s beer, bangers and mash
There will be a starting photo soon. I’m also going to modify MT to cope with a WW journal style of entry, but don’t hold your breath as I’m very bad at finishing things I start.
PS. Catherine – saw your search … in general, I tend not to mention people I meet in my daily travels unless I’ve talked about my blog with them on the day I’m likely to blog them into posterity. I don’t know who reads this, and I think many like their privacy.
