157.1lbs this week, up 0.9.  Hit a couple of the conservation areas this weekend and went across rocky and wet terrain for the first time in years, just over 10kms walking/hiking.  Seems a small thing but really was a big step mentally.  Niagara Escarpment is a great place to walk along, have a goal of doing the whole Bruce Trail from Niagara Falls to Tobermory at the end of the Bruce Peninsula on Georgian Bay, eventually at any rate, it's 900kms!

First club run in months last night. I don't normally care about being in a group (even if small) versus running alone but it was really positive last night.

Still not going anywhere near the scales.

Poor form this week - 67.8kg

First weekly rise since October. Two roast dinners, occasional snacking and less exercise are responsible. Time to knuckle down a bit, although I'd be happy if I consolidated now considering where I was last year. My resting heart rate has dropped 10 bpm since October as well.

Not as bad as feared. 81kg.

Time to stop eating when bored, drinking when bored, sitting still when bored.

Basically, time to stop being bored.

91 dead but I’m away again for a couple of weeks so will stick with that until I get back. I’ll then be expecting a sharp rise due to living on takeaways and beer gardens being back open.

Apologies to bobbruce for the delay in updating

Two points, one about me, one in general.

Firstly, my BMI is around 45, I'm 33 years old. I am going to go forward safely and healthily to reduce my BMI below 35 before I turn 35 years old in less than 18 months time. I know BMI is misleading but it has a nice ring to it.

Secondly, make sure your details are up to date with your doctors. I think I have fallen between the cracks for a vaccine because my BMI may have been just below 40 18 months / 2 years ago when I last went to see my specialist in person and got weighed for my records.

I made a point to check my weight* and update my records when I went to the GP last week, and my BMI is now the aforementioned 45. It seems I made the update too late for a vaccine call up.

*My bathroom scales weren't working properly, I would get on and get a reading, then a few further check readings in the next minute or so were very different each time, falling by 3-4 pounds each time. There be the Laws of Unintended Consequences.

Not to worry as I think it was more down to me being late posting my weight. As I said though I will stick on that for a couple of weeks while I’m away.

Down to 155lbs this week, down 2.5lbs.  I've upped the walking and jogging now the streets are safe (we're in lockdown 3 now, no gyms or pools open).  Still being mindful of portion control and tracking my food intake, but made more of a conscious effort on drinking more water.

This week is officially my one year anniversary of being at or below my 160lb goal weight, maintaining at 70-75lbs lost in total.  Really happy about that and this definitely feels like a sustainable lifestyle change.  Medical issues much more bearable, medication down and mental health is so much better too compared to where I was.

No going back!

158lbs this week, up 3lbs.  Ate some of the feelings with the separation this week (piled into Monster Much, Pot Noodles and Cornish pasties from the British shop in town that just opened), but I also did the longest distance on Runkeeper this week (5.8k) and also my fastest (7:00 min/k) pace in two different sessions.  I find I go up when increasing activity when I'm sore and retaining fluid.
