Today I am 105.4kg which is 232.3lbs or 16st 8lbs
What a few weeks it has been. My weight loss has slowed right down but not paused. That’s great news for my motivation. To be honest – breaking 106kg was quite a big deal in effort and concentration after the joy of being told by the doctor that I had returned to normal. And all this through low carb eating and simple walking on a treadmill.
I was eating low carb but burning the fat at the same time. Losing weight for me is a consequence, not the focus. Perhaps that’s why I am successful at losing weight. I simply don’t try losing weight, I just pay attention to my diet regime and the weight slips off sort of accidentally.
What totally threw me was a sudden urge to run. Well jog. Well move my bottom at a pace which to me resembled life or death but to a passing motorist would only present as mildly agitated walk but from my angle was a possible heart attack in progress. So I encouraged my boy to come for a run and after a personal best on the treadmill of 200m at 4kph I felt invincible and donned a pair of rugby shorts not seen on my legs since the middle of 1999. Next I slipped on a pair of cheap Tesco trainers I bought for a £10er and we were off. Then there was the hill. My boy was encouraging me and got me to a new personal best of 600m. So we did a little “dance of joy” as my Big Sis calls it and then came the heavy realisation I still had to get back home. I might have to rethink this running business.
Well tonight I am posting this under the blare of a fan trying to hold back the tidal wave of sweat as I cool down from a treadmill session with the following recorded details:
Speed – 5.6kp/h — Incline – 5.9% — Time – 22mins
This gave me
Distance – 2.05km — Altitude Climbed – 121.15m — Cals Burned – 262.71 (don’t forget the 0.71)
Oh and for the first time since we bought it many years ago – I went on our trampoline. Now I can see why the kids are on it all the time. What fun! 🙂
