How far have I come in a year since starting this blog about my diet trials with Paul Mckenna? Well I have started 2007 off with a diet!
I doubt that I am alone in my, what seems like and endless struggle with my weight, but I have piled it on over the weeks leading upto Christmas. I am currently at 18 stone and 4 pounds which is 4 pounds heavier than when I started off a year ago. Not too great! But along the way I have learnt a lot about losing weight and various methods that do and don’t work.
I started off with the Golden Rules to Losing Weight with Paul Mckenna which did work but I found that I just didn’t stick to the eating consciously part which meant I was eating as much as I had been doing. I had always managed to lose weight on the Atkins Diet and I was back on it by March. I managed to lose some weight but was shocked when I went to the doctors for a cholesterol test and was told mine was much higher than it should be. So I decided that it was more important for me to try and have a healthy diet of lots of fruit and veg. This made me feel generally better and healthier.
One big health push was stopping smoking back at the end of June which is still going well. I have also learnt on the way a lot about diet pills and it is one thing that I am considering as my next option, so I may be trying out Acomplia some time in 2007… but for now I’m doing a few weeks of the Atkins.
