This week I lost 2lb, which takes me back to where I was before my holiday. Mostly I've been fairly good this week, but I did have a flexible day yesterday and add an extra 15 sins to my normal weekly total. And I do think I was lucky to lose that much. I think the large losses I've been having lately and the very small gain I had last week from my holiday can only be explained by the fluoxitine I'm taking for my depression though: it did say weight loss was a possible side effect and I've not been anywhere near food enough lately to have lost so much weight without a little bit of extra help.
I was planning on stopping at 11 stone and staying there until after Christmas or so and then deciding if I wanted to lose another half stone at that point. Given I'm on a roll at the moment though I've decided tonight that I may as well lose that extra half stone now while I'm finding it easy. If I decide it's too much I can always put it back on again (now *that* will be novel!). And there's always the possibility that it'll come back again when I stop taking the pills anyway. So instead of only 1 lb to go I now have 8 again.
I suspect some people will think I should stop where I am, since I am looking pretty good, but I do know what size/fitness I was at 10.5 stone some years back, and did think I was a pretty good shape then. And I don't think another half stone is going to make me ridiculously skinny or anything. But anyway, I'll just have to see how it goes.
Over the past 11 months of dieting I've lost 4st 1lb, which amounts to 27% of my starting weight - my current weight is 11st 1lb
My average loss a week is 1¼lb
My target weight is 10st 7lb. I am currently 0st 8lb away from this.
My current BMI is 24.91; my target BMI is 23.62.
