I have been on a lifestyle change over the past 18 months. Not just a diet, not just a fitness program and not just a fad. I have integrated healthier eating with lowering my intake of calories and increasing my high energy exercise. Any one of those would help me to lose weight but all three combined have slowly and methodically reduced my weight (and increased my fitness) to a level I didnt think possible. I am now at a weight I havent been at since in my twenties and am only a couple of pounds off my “ideal” weight (according to BMI anyway).
Do I do a drum roll? Not really. I just feel really pleased that I have now lost 3 stone since I started out on this course last year and have managed to sustain it. Am I finished? No, I want to continue in this vein and not necessarily to lose more weight but to just maintain my lifestyle and feeling good.If I could reintroduce a bit more walking and camping to compliment the cycling….that would be perfection! 🙂
