Since the weight hasn’t been falling away quite as fast as I’d hoped, I’ve decided to get a bit more serious about it and set up a profile at MyFitnessPal (ugh what a terrible name!) as recommended to me by Michael T, who apparently used to be something of a fatty with high blood pressure himself :)
Ideally I’d like to drop another 19kg (at the rate I’ve been going this would take another year at least).
I’ll be using it to track diet and exercise, as well as weight, blood pressure, waist measurements, and fat and muscle percentages as recorded by my new cheap-ass bathroom scales. These last two are unlikely to be reliable numbers except for tracking change, and may indicate why I haven’t lost a lot of weight so far. According to these readings my body fat % has steadily decreased in the last few weeks from about 25.5% to 24.3%, with a corresponding increase in muscle percentage. So that’s promising!
Weight: 101 kg
Waist: 112 cm
Blood Pressure: 140/95
