I’m 1 stone above my ideal weight and 2 stone off the weight I want to be!
For a former anorexic, this is not good news!!
The last time I was this heavy I was about 7 months pregnant! No wonder I am finding my new fitness class hard work!!
A friend of mine sent me a link to a ‘Fitness Tracking Website‘ where you can enter your current height & weight, your ideal height & weight & what you eat every day to see how many calories, and how much Fat, Protein & Carbohydrate you eat.
I haven’t weighed myself in months, maybe years. I hide my weighing scales, there was a time I used to weigh myself every time I went upstairs. I don’t want my daughters getting into that trap, and I am easily tempted. If the scales were in the bathroom, I would weigh myself, constantly.
Anyway, the last time I weighed myself I was about 1½ stone lighter than I am now, which I was just about comfortable with. In my teens until I was 30 I wanted to be 3 stone lighter than I am now and wasn’t far off it. 1½ stone more was a massive achievement for me. Now i’m 3 stone heavier!! Not funny!!
I am trying to do 45 minutes of exercise twice a week, and have joined a great club, but I wore old shoes for my first few runs & hurt my Achilles Tendon, so can’t run at all at the moment! At least I don’t need a walking stick to get around now!! (Exercises from the NHS website for Plantar Fascia (which is related) have been absolutely brilliant). I’m still able to do the circuit training, but I was too sore today to do the training after Monday’s session, so will have to wait till Next week unless I can make myself do a workout on my own??
Anyway, in order to lose 1lb a week, which is the recommended weight loss plan, I have to eat no more than 1290 Calories a day, 177g of Carbs, 43g of Fat & 48g of Protein a day.
Today I ate 1716 Calories, 304 Carbs, 60g of Fat & 37g of Protein
At this rate, assuming I still do 45 mins of a workout twice a week, I will lose 1lb by Christmas! 😦
I guess the 7 slices of delicious Baklava that I ate after dinner weren’t such a good idea!!
