Taking Consequences

From now my intention is to blog weekly to report on my progress. There are two reasons for this. One – most humble – is that maybe I can inspire other chubby foodies to find a way to kick-start that old metabolism. The other is purely egoistic: I gather that if I go public with my struggles it will motivate me to keep on the straight and narrow. I shall not want to lose face and admit that I haven’t lost BMI points. Let’s see if that works.

Well, I’m here to tell you that after a rather bumpy ride this autumn I was quite pleased to be approaching a BMI of 31. That’s when I got the opportunity to have a long weekend in Milan, a treat I couldn’t resist. I even decided to put all ideas about sensible eating on hold and just indulge, well aware that there would be consequences.

I’m a pasta addict. I love Italian food and there was no way I wouldn’t let myself enjoy four days in this fantastic city.

There were consequences, of course. When I came back my weighing machine told me I was up to 32.8. But, with my wonderful new lifestyle after ten days I’m down to 31.7 and I haven’t even suffered. Much.

My goal is to be down below 30 in January. That will be a challenge, but it’s not inconcievable. My long term goal is to reach BMI 25 before the end of 2018. And stay there. Please cheer me on!

This shows my BMI loss before I went to Italy.
