...of adding a weight loss goal here as I’m cautious about overly focussing on losing weight due to my former issues.
My weight has been fairly stable the past few years, for the first time in my life I havent fluctuated much from 9st. I’d prefer to be closer to 8st but becoming obsessed poses severe risks to my mental health.
Unfortunately this past 6 months or so my weight has crept up due to lots of meals out, wine and using the biscuit tin at work as a stress management tool.
I want to be healthier and losing 14lb would also have the advantage of opening up my wardrobe as I have few lovely things I’m just a bit large for.
I was a bit dismayed to realise my bmi has crept up to 26 making me officially overweight at 136lb. If I lose 6lb I would be back in the healthy weight range. My aim is to lose 14lb and at 122lb I’d be safely in the middle of the healthy weight range.
I plan to work on getting back to 3 meals a day (still to include the occasional treat). I’ve quit alcohol for January and plan not to return to the levels I was drinking before. The I need to incorporate a little more exercise. Trying to set realistic achievable goals.
Planning to achieve this around Easter time. 4 months ago
