Up a bit.

Up a bit.
I spoiled myself this week. After last weeks weigh in, it was time for a bit of a relax and a weekend filled with spectator sports and music. The only problem with that is that when you watch sport, it's always nice to have a beer or two. Coupled with that, listening to live music also involves a beer or two. This coupled with the wind down after the sport and live music also involves a beer or two. *rum may also make an appearance. So I wasn't surp...

Another step down…

Another step down…
Most people these days will tell you to take a step up. Step up and be a man. Step up and take it. Well, not me! I'm taking a step down and I'm bloody proud of it. Over the last seven months I've fallen. I started out at the heaviest weight I could ever be. I was just off 29 stone in weight. I could have been even heavier and something needed to change.  I'm honestly not quite sure why I started to change myself. I suppose I was facing redundancy fr...

Down but not out.

Down but not out.
God almighty, I've had a bit of a nightmare this week. I've struggled with my day to day and have my mind has been concentrating on a lot of things other than my food optimising. I'd not concentrated on what I've been eating but I suppose subconsciously I knew that I wasn't being as bad as I thought I'd been. So, stepping on the scales of doom, I was pleasantly surprised to see that I've lost another 4lbs this week. It certainly doesn't feel that I'...

On Fleek for Mr Sleek

On Fleek for Mr Sleek
So it's been a difficult week this week. Must admit that my mind isn't quite up to scratch at the moment and perhaps that explains the 1lb gain. It's been a mixed few weeks on and off plan. 4lbs on, 5lb off and another gain this week. Trying to balance my food with my mental health is a battle that I feel like I'm losing both. However, I was nominated for and won the group Mr Sleek award tonight. It's a vote to recognise someone in group who's life ...

Yo Yo Yo…

Yo Yo Yo…
Last week wasn't really a shock when I put on 4lbs. I knew straight off that I hadn't had a good week and it was going to take a miracle to pull it back this week.  I've had a good week and as you can perhaps see by the Food diaries I've been keeping, I'm looking after the syns and getting as much free and speed food that I can. So, the scales of doom this week registered a loss of 5lbs. So I'm back on track heading towards my next stone goal. I cer...
