Marvellous Weight Loss!

DID I TELL YOU how severely I lost my appetite last week? So extremely that I could barely eat and drink 500 calories a day. I put off going near food for hours because the prospect of eating just made me feel sick. I never felt hungry, just nauseated. A feeling that made me want to touch food even less, even though I know from experience it means I "need to eat".

I LOST NEARLY 5KG IN A WEEK! That's 11 pounds. I'm so happy. It's worth any amount of nausea to lose that weight.

I desperately needed to lose that weight as I was just a few grams under ONE HUNDRED KILOS. That's 220lbs or FIFTEEN STONE SEVEN! Overweight women like to say that I don't look fat, which is true. My silhouette in clothes, even at this extravagant poundage, looks normal. But when I wear a wooly hat my face looks like the moon, which I don't like. As my house is freezing, so I wear a woolen hat all the time. I even sleep with it on.

Well the diet is going to pot. I consumed nearly 1500 calories in food and drink yesterday. 1500 is the most a person in my position should ever consume. All this crap about a man needing 2500 cals a day. Well yes, maybe, if he works as a hod-carrying bricklayer and wants to look tubby then yes 2500 is fine. But THE VAST MAJORITY OF THE WORLD'S POPULATION SURVIVE PERFECTLY WELL ON CONSIDERABLY LESS THAN THE 2500/2000 Calorie a day recommendations of western health professionals!

I went to India in 2000 and saw their portion-sizes. Their main course is like a western starter. They don't eat puddings or sweets at all, with the possible exception of some fruits that aren't too expensive. (Most Indians are poor.) But more to the point, ALL Indians I saw were thin, with the single exception of the police, who everyone knows live on bribes, backhanders and money scammed from the people they are meant to protect.

5 kilos a week isn't bad. At this rate I can stop worrying about weight loss in another seven weeks. Though I can never go back to the diet I was on before. The ONLY diet that works long-term is a permanent, life-long change in diet. Anyone who believes they can go "on" a diet for a few weeks and then somehow sustain the weightloss achieved despite reverting to their previous lousy eating habits is sadly mistaken.

I'm hoping to go down to 10 stone/130 pounds ~ wish me luck!

PS my mood is down to "normal". Even though it felt perfectly normal before, I insist it is more "normal" now. I'm not pacing around laughing uncontrollably today... know what I mean?...

That's a lot to lose in a week! Gradual weight loss is better. You're right one can't diet for just a few weeks, one needs to eat healthily for ever. Good luck with it, I'll be starting in the new year.

Well, I'm sorry the weight loss came as a result of feeling ill but congrats on losing so much in a week. Wow! Isn't it shocking how many calories the experts say we should be consuming? I try to hang out in the 1200 a day range...holidays aside, lol.

"Hoping to go down to 10 stone~" I don't really want to be that thin. Maybe 11 or 12! 154 to 168lb ~~ 69-76kg :-)

That is good.I bet you have a great physique.I like the little birdies up there.Since your loosing weight heres some mineral water to keep your caboose in top shapeXoXo

Gledwood said...

Beverly: don't the little blue and green chirpers look lovely? I'd really like a blue parrotlet... or a blue ringneck parrakeet like in your video. What with its talk and it's hyper-vivid plumage, that bird looks like an hallucination!

Springwater flavour kisses? Wow that would be a first for me. Because I'm quite sure that mine, if they're not laden down with some artificial flavour or other, will taste strongly of bad breath!

So I'm sending Mr Kiplings Black Forest G√Ęteau Surprise XxXxXxXs!
