I have set myself a really low target for 2019 with regards to my weight. I have decided that I do need to get back to my lowest recorded weight in recent years however my health, in general, is more important so I am not going to “diet” per se and I intend to actually move a bit more. But how is going so far?

So here we are again – another rotation around the sun. Did you have any goals with regards to your weight or physical well-being? How did you get on?
I made a fundamental lifestyle change in 2018 which may, or may not, have contributed to a slow year metabolism wise. I tried to go vegan but in the
Back 2015 I had set myself some goals for my weight. The first 20 weeks were spent trying to achieve these goals. After a couple of weeks in the UK, and some 5kg later, for the rest of the year I was playing catch up to make the weight again.
I have brought some exercise into my left, though that has subsided somewhat recently. However general well-being as improved, my blood pressure now falls into the “normal” bracket and I am trying to get a decent amount of quality sleep.
My second stint of dieting finished on Monday this week. Another stretch of 20 weeks to try to get my weight down to what I consider acceptable for me… After I Decided That I Had Lose Weight I managed to lose 15kg in my first phase of dieting – only to put 3 of it back during a 3 week holiday in Thailand.
After some time into this phase though I realized that I might have to modify my targets somewhat. Below are the key stats from the 20 week period up to May 30th this year.
Yesterday I summarized how I planned to lose 10kg in a 20 week period at the end of 2015. I set up a number of targets along the way to make the whole process SMART. In this post I will highlight a few facts and figures to show the status.
First things first my starting weight was 93,6kg. Pretty heavy for a small guy (173cm). We, my competition and I, had discussed the challenge for a while and I actually lost 0,6kg from the previous week. But that does not count for this period although I know in my heart of hearts that I had actually peaked in weight a few weeks before.
I’ve learned many things this year but after all the jubilation and success of 2016, exceeding my goals of losing 20 kgs, 2017 has been a bit of a scunner.
Things were going pretty well for the first half. I had conceded 0,5 kg as an acceptable “over” – surviving holidays away, partying with friends and general non-exercise that I’d tried to maintain since the turn of the year.
Normalization was a goal of mine after my weight loss efforts. Now I have another new toy to measure my normality and hopefully give me enough incentives to keep the weight off and eventually get a bit fitter too.
My diet ended officially on boxing day last year (2016) since then I have been trying to lead a normal life: no more souping!
