In the next couple of weeks there’s going to be a post for you about how I’ve decided to lose weight-and instead of just saying I’m going to go it like I have before I’ve actually stared to do it. That’s pretty exciting, and three weeks in I’m already seeing a difference in how my clothes fit. So, I thought I’d do a post now about what I’ve been doing, in case you fancy dropping a few pounds too (disclaimer-I’m not saying anyone needs to lose weight. I’m saying that I am 5 stone heavier than I want to be and so I CHOSE TO. You do you)
I’ve been eating two meals a day-a late brunch, and a late tea. If I was up early enough I’d have a proper breakfast but I’m not, so I go for eggs or cereal, a small glass of fruit juice and then a big bowl of fruit in the afternoon. I have a decent tea-usually some sort of meat, potatoes or rice and veg. I sometimes have a yoghurt afterwards too. Then if I’m hungry later (I’m usually awake until 3am) I have a bowl of cereal.
I’ve been trying to walk more, as well as going up and down the steps three or four times when I need to go once. As well as upping my step count I’ve been on my exercise bike in front of the tv, and I think when the weather is better I’ll be looking for somewhere with cycling bargains so I can buy myself a new bike and head outside to cycle there too.
There’ll be a full weightloss progress update post coming in the next couple of weeks when I’m a bit further into this journey, but I’m feeling good.
Have you ever tried to drop some weight? What’s worked for you?
