As I said in the last post, I have been finding my time-limited weight loss programs counter-productive in the end. You know, where you try to lose X amount of weight in such-and-such time period. Whenever I would have a bad week and miss my target, everything always seemed so insurmountable and I would just get off-track for weeks at a time. The feeling of failure was always near. But this has all been made worse by certain life stresses, which one day I may go into, and the general festive Yule period of Gluttomas.
So now the goal is not to time-limit my diet, although I will give myself “guideline targets”. This way, I feel that if I feel like I’m having a poor week, I won’t get all stressed out and depressed about it.
As stated in previous posts, a healthy weight for me is 13 stone 7 pounds (189lb, ~86kg). I am currently my fattest ever: 18st 0.2lb (252.02lb)!! That is literally 1/8 of a ton. What in the literal fuck!?
So, I’m going to go for half a stone (7lb) a month. That is just under 2lb a week, and I think very reasonable. By checking in monthly, I don’t feel pressured and can make up for a bad week with a good one.
My first guideline target is to drop 7.2lb by the end of January. That would make me 17st 7lb (245lb) on 1st February 2018.
Seriously, let’s do this!
