What I did in 2016 to Achieve My Weight Loss Targets

Achieving my weight loss targets for 2016 would be harder, I knew, after losing 15kg first phase in 2015.

As per previous posts on how to achieve SMART goals and targets, (and last year's too) and how I fared this year it is again time for the gory details of how I got to where I am today.

As I have stated previously, this is not a quick fix solution, I wanted to lose weight in a maintainable way.

As per my post summing up my activity last year, I continued with changing habits.

4 Ways to Achieve Weight Loss Targets

  • Taking in lots of the "super" foods
  • Being fairly active, 13 000 steps a day minimum
  • Reduced carbs intake
  • Drink water like a boss
I wasn't nearly so strict with the souping this time around though. I had a couple of "blow out" weekends that pushed the weight up by almost 2.5kg. I knew it was going to be tough and I persevered.

Now onto the normalization. As I write this I have had my first week without the burden of the weight loss challenge, soup is still on the menu but through choice.

I have also had my first 2 sessions of home gym workouts. So far so good. I know this may increase the weight a bit, but I still need to lose fat. All part of the master plan.

Look out for more updates on the normalization phase soon.
