Day 3 – Inconsistency

BMI: 32.84

Higher than my first day, but lower than my second. Might sound odd, but this is likely due to doing it at different times of the day – your weight varies considerably depending on a bunch of different factors. Chances are I just didn’t weight as much on the first day at the time of weighing. You’re really supposed to do it as a consistent part of your routine. I doubt it was over-eating at least, whilst I did forget I was on a diet long enough to munch my way through a chocolate egg (which was crap, standard cocoa mix chocolate shell surrounding a weird mousse thing?), but hey, probably burned that off with a walking trip into town and back to try on some contact lenses. Sadly, they were a bit too busy to actually see us due to being short staffed and incredibly busy, but the people there are lovely, so anyway, early Thursday appointment instead. And for dinner, we did get burgers, but then with all the extra walking, it probably worked out fine.

Today, it went much better, no snacks, light dinner, not so heavy tea (or lunch and dinner if you’re less Northern). Felt good about it, especially weighed against the second day. Do need to incorporate into routine though. It will even out quickly and give me a better idea of how I’m doing day to day, as well as making it easier to bolt on other bits of routine, being better organised with exercise.

I was also a bit tempted to do before / after photos, but these always feel tacky and a little fake, but I haven’t decided completely. Most images I’ll be posting will be about visual interest, to look good or to be illustrative, although I guess a blog about weight loss would be illustrated pretty well by having a before shot, right? With the weight not being settled yet, I guess it isn’t an important thing to rush.

We’ll see.
