Weight Loss Support Thread


Recommended Posts

I've backslid over the last four months since baby was born, and gained back about four kilos. I'm starting up the exercise routine again though, and this time my now-unencumbered wife is joining in with me. Minding our diet should be easier over the coming months as spring and summer roll around and we'll tend towards eating salads and lean meats.

It took me a moment to remember that you live in the southern hemisphere, LOL.

 

It's hard to keep the weight down after a baby comes, you get focused on making sure Mom and Baby. Only four kilos is pretty good actually, I've known guys who gained double that in the same situation.

OK, after some searching, the last time we did a weight loss support thread was over five years ago.  It didn't seem to make sense to threadomancy that since it is long out of date.  Anyway, I need to

So I finally got around to checking the "damage" done over the past few month of lax-ness. Turns out gained back 10lbs of what I lost. Still very much in the positive, but a disappointing trend. Now to get back on that treadmill and go back to where I want to be. As of today I am at 160, goal again is 150...

/blows away the dust

 

So things have happened, jobs were gained and lost, houses moved into and new awesome jobs were gained. Diets failed and exercising failures but something happened.

 

My new job is in the city. There are gourmet restaurants downstairs and an unlimited number of places that would deliver food.

 

However, my job offers free health snacks and drinks and access to cooking or eating with them. There's vegan chips, nuts of all kinds, every Wednesday they bring fresh fruits, there are several soda dispensers but they're rarely used (I drink 58oz of ice water a day) there's treadmills for active use in the office and a legitimate source of constant encouragement and care for your health.

 

Before I knew it, two months into this job, I have lost weight. Noticeably. My clothes aren't near as snug and my energy has improved. I dropped 20lbs in a month without thinking about it. I didn't have time to worry about dieting. I snacked on nuts, gluten free low calorie snacks and drank water while working.

 

I signed up for a biometric reading, figuring I would just learn that I'm an unhealthy fatty, it was covered by my company so I went. Instead I learned I had dropped 20lbs since my doctors appointment a few weeks before, and I have low cholesterol. Besides being fat, I'm okay.

 

Since I have a bit more balance in my life and a puppy to get me out walking, I think I may be a new Mrs. M eventually.

I think this was the most helpful thing that happened to me. 2-3 daily walks, some as long as an hour to tire out the puppy meant that I was up and moving too. I added in some dog agility after a year too, and that was kind of like a once or twice a week easy workout too.
