My goal for 2018 was to shed the excess of 2017 that I am going to attribute to quitting smoking. However, I fully intend to exercise to complement the eating program: simple kilos lost will not be my only goal.

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.
It’s been over 8 months since I last posted on this blog, Not So Heavy but I feel that must write again as the fight to lose weight is back on.
For many months, my weight had remained stable, around the 74kg mark. It was slightly up on my lowest weight but I was quite content, especially since I was not really exercising. I wasn’t drinking water like a boss and I wasn’t even getting to measure 10k steps per day on my toy any more.
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!
I’ve posted some of these images already, but here are some key weight stats for my 2016. As I got a funky set of scales for Christmas I won’t be using the old excel any more, but I thought that I would share my template with you if you want to record your weight too. More details in a coming post this week.
