Man took a photo of me yesterday and I am appalled.
This is not what I want to see when I look in the mirror.
So I said at the start of this blog that I needed to lose a few stone.
I’ve decided that few stone is probably four … well maybe five. Let’s go for four and a half just for good measure.
I am basing my current weight on the last time I got on the scales, which was probably about two weeks ago.
My main problem is that I don’t eat proper meals and then I snack on crap.
So, first step, eat proper meals, don’t snack between meals.
Second problem is not enough exercise.
Second step, 20 minutes’ exercise every day. Walking to start with I think then we will built up.
This week I’ve walked at least a couple of miles every day I think.
Third problem is I don’t eat enough fruit and vegetables.
Third step, find some time to shop properly so I’ve got fruit and vegetables easily accessible. It’s not as if I don’t like them.
Fourth problem … I’m very good at starting things and not carrying them through.
Fourth solution, put it out there so it’s not just me I’m kidding any more.
So, I’m going to shame myself into doing something about my weight and fitness.
Here’s the picture.
I’ll post another one in a month … and one the month after that etc etc.
This a real challenge for me on two counts. I have a weight problem and a self-image problem. I like to give the impression that I don’t give a damn, but I do … I care a lot so it’s time to do something about it.
July 11 2012 – minus three pounds. Woo hoo, I’m on my way. Actually it is minus 3.5 lbs, but I’m only dealing with full lbs here. 67 lbs to go :)
