Ugh! Where did the fat suit come from?!
I don't weigh myself, I avoid full-length mirrors and cameras, and I've been ignoring the fact that my clothes are getting too tight. So it's been quite a wake up call to look at some recent photos of myself and realise the "extra 1 or 2 kg" my mind thinks I'm carrying, is in reality more like an extra 10kgs. My BMI calculation puts me just into the "overweight" category, and my waist measurement is just under the "increased risk of chronic disease" measurement...
I don't want to throw myself into a diet & exercise regime that won't last - I need to do babysteps. We very rarely eat takeaway, but I do have a weakness for chips (crisps). I tend to grab for carb foods rather than fruit when I want a snack, and I lead a rather sedentary life.
* Cut my daily sugar intake in half by turning my "white with 2" tea into "white with 1"..
* Eat 1 piece of fruit / day
* Get off my backside and be active!! (still to be determined exactly how!)
I'll try not to bore anyone, but I'm going to try and report in each week. Feel free to skip!
