Weight Log: 8 - Just the weight update

Latest recorded weight: 181.4 kg - 399.9 lb - 28 stone and 7.9 lb - BMI: 56 Back to regular blogging 1st July.


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.
