Weight Log: 16 - Some much needed time off

Latest recorded weight: 178.5 kg - 393.5 lb - 28 stone and 1.5 lb - BMI: 55.1 A pattern emerging. Up and down, up and down. Bit of a pattern emerging here huh? Granted I’ve not really made and changes or pushes to break the plateau. Spoke with my clinical psychologist from the weight management clinic and she is very happy with where I am so next appointment will be in a year.

Weight Log: 15 - Welcome to the yo-yo

Latest recorded weight: 177.5 kg - 391.3 lb - 27 stone and 13.3 lb - BMI: 54.8 Left and right and up and down. I’ll be honest, I am so pessimistic every time I weight myself. Being harsh on myself feels natural. Yet whenever I think I’ve fucked things up, I’ve not. Back to where I was 1st September and I feel like now big social commitments/stresses are done and dusted, I can really re-focus on me again.

Weight Log: 14 - Some form of permanently exhausted pigeon

Latest recorded weight: 178.5 kg - 393.5 lb - 28 stone and 1.5 lb - BMI: 55.1 A couples of days late. As the title suggests, this post is a few days late. I feel like some form of permanently exhausted pigeon right now and its really messing me up. On top of being exhausted in general, I’ve had to cut down my intermittent fasting from 18 hours to 17 hours as I was starting to feel dizzy deep into fasting.

Weight Log: 13 - Just another weight update

Latest recorded weight: 177.5 kg - 391.3 lb - 27 stone and 13.3 lb - BMI: 54.8 No real update this time. Just want to say one thing, Happy Birthday Dad. You should have turned 61 today but you will be forever 59. Miss you. I’ll be having a proper Redington drink in honour later today. Normal update on 15th September.

Weight Log: 12 - Burnout

Latest recorded weight: 179.5 kg - 395.7 lb - 28 stone and 3.7 lb - BMI: 55.4 Bad eating, bad gains. Last 2 weeks have been rough. Work/life balance for me has been thrown off and its been so stressful. For about a week my body was physically burnt out to the point I could not do more than half a gym session without feeling dizzy. Having no time to even compose myself has left me so mentally wreaked.

Weight Log: 11 - Feel Good Inc.

Latest recorded weight: 176.5 kg - 389.1 lb - 27 stone and 11.1 lb - BMI: 54.5 Continued Progress. It’s official, this is the lightest I’ve been since around October 2019. I’m eating better, feeling better and exercise has become just a part of my weekly routine. In the past I’ve hovered and plateaued around this weight so while I am relishing the in the continued weight progress, I need to not let things slip.

Weight Log: 10 - 125 days of Intermittent fasting

Latest recorded weight: 178.7 kg - 394 lb - 28 stone and 2 lb - BMI: 55.2 Late posting but positive progress. Two months of stalling, gaining and struggling with weight again has now started to tread back downwards. This weigh in has been a massive motivation boost. The struggles, months of posting with no real results, the amazing support from all… it’s starting to feel like its paying off.

Weight Log: 9 - My new normal

Latest recorded weight: 182.3 kg - 401.9 lb - 28 stone and 9.9 lb - BMI: 56.3 Progress? Just not in the numbers. Weighing myself today, I had no idea how it would be. My comfort binge eating is still an issue when something beats me and drains my mental energy. Some people drink booze, some people smoke, I eat. That being said its not all bad news. I have been building my new routine and have been going to the gym for 1 hour sessions three times a week for the past 2-3 weeks now.

Weight Log: 7 - No title

Latest recorded weight: 180.3 kg - 397.5 lb - 28 stone and 5.5 lb - BMI: 55.6 With a very emotional anniversary coming ever closer, I’ve faltered on my eating some what. On top of that, just had 4 days of big eating to celebrate a birthday and finally being able to have family, friends etc indoors since Christmas. Still going to the gym for over an hour each time, 2-3 times a week.

Weight Log: 6 - Stalled and stressed

Latest recorded weight: 179.3 kg - 395.3 lb - 28 stone and 3.3 lb - BMI: 55.3 Stalled progress. Things became stalled once again and the cause, 29th April’s thing. Because of that, I had to stop overly stressing my heart (including going to the gym) until given the nod that it was okay. Because of that I got more panic/stress eaty to cope with my worries and just couldn’t focus on doing the right things.

Weight Log: 5 - Best result so far! - But health blip...

Latest recorded weight: 178.1 kg - 392.6 lb - 28 stone and 0.6 lb - BMI: 55.0 Best result so far! Whoh! Okay! Was not expecting this at all. Dropped a whole BMI point 👀. I did get my eating back under some control which is great. I had started going back to the gym twice a week since 12th April when it all opened up again from the ongoing Lockdown.

Weight Log: 4 - Stress eating strikes back

Latest recorded weight: 181.6 kg - 400.4 lb - 28 stone and 8.4 lb - BMI: 56.0 I suck at stress management. I’m back up to the weight I was at for Weight Log: 1 at the beginning of March and I can put this down to a poor coping mechanism, my stress eating. A poor excuse but something else I need to work on. As frustrating as it is, I am going to try and not let this blip get me down too much– Well if you’ve spoken to me already today, you know its getting me down but just need to keep going and see if I can curb things to get back on track.

Weight Log: 3.5 - New scales - New weight?!

Latest recorded weight: 179.8 kg - 396.4 lb - 28 stone and 4.4 lb - BMI: 55.5 New scales! Not much to say really. With new scales that go up to 200kg and have a larger standing area they gave me the same recording 3 times in a row so I’m happy. This does mean I will have to reset, start again with this being the new baseline since the last recordings were with different scales.

Weight Log: 3 - Scales are playing April fools...

Latest recorded weight: Unable to get stable measurement. Stalling weight loss. Not a weight loss story until you hit that wall huh? Low mood and Diverticulitis has been kicking my arse these recent weeks and well this didn’t help. I did bust out the scales middle of last week to check in before payday and.. scales said “ERR”. That hurt. I’m fasting for 18 hours a day and being strict about it.

Weight Log: 2 - Birthday indulgence

Latest recorded weight: 180.7 kg - 398.4 lb - 28 stone and 6.4 lb - BMI: 55.8 “All downhill from now”. While most people use this as a joke for now being 30, I’m going to use it for the trending progress I’m currently seeing in my weight loss 😂. This one was a shock for me, not going to lie. I had a weekend of indulgence in celebration of both my 30th birthday and mother’s day.

Weight Log: 1 - Overwhelming Support

Latest recorded weight: 181.7 kg - 400.6 lb - 28 stone and 8.6 lb - BMI: 56.1 Alright! Update number 1. As you can see in the “Progress since last post:” bit above, it says SOMETHING! I’m still above 180kg, but I got a consistent reading from my home scales. Woooo! Finally getting a reliable reading off my own scales is pretty big for me as its been a while since I’ve been able to measure such things.

Weight Log: 0 - Accountability

I think it is time to talk about the elephant in the room. Time to be open and transparent about a very obvious health problem I have: morbid obesity. Yes, I am morbidly obese (BMI over 40). Not nice to say it but it’s true. Whenever I am honest to people about my actual weight, people are shocked at the figure. I mean yes, I’ve always been a chunker but this has truly got out of hand and the numbers agree.
