Weighty matters

Ten minutes ago, I was elated: by finally deigning to use one of those infernal treadmills at my physiotherapist's, and noticing that it displayed weight, heart rate and time in flickering red LEDs, I found out I currently weigh in at 75 kg exactly. 75 kilos*! That means that over the summer, I've lost 15!

That was before I logged on to the web and calculated that my BMI is 26, which means that I'm still overweight. Apparently, there's another 15 to come off before I reach the ideal weight for my height. :(

* 75 kg= 165.3466966387 lb; 15 kg = 33.0693393277 lb

Why grumpy? You've done amazingly well and by Christmas you'll be there!

Thank you!

Why grumpy?

I've been having visions of treacle tart, Battenberg cake, and sticky toffee pudding of late, thinking I might indulge when I reach London (only a week and a half away now!). Even here, every time I go outside, there's the smell of speculaas, a seasonal treat, wafting on the still wintry air from every bakery.

But today's revelation means I'd better not risk it.

Build the occasional treat into your menu

as long as it's once in a while it will do no harm and you can always step up th exercise a bit to compensate now your ankle is better ( which. by the way, is also great news)

It is, isn't it? At least, I thought so too, until Rutger put a dampener on it by explaining to me this afternoon that although it's much improved by the surgery and his and my good work, I shouldn't think of it as good as new. It's a severely damaged joint and will need much care and attention (i.e. exercise) from now until forever, really...well, you'll know all about that.
