Week 34 of lockdown and 14 weeks home from hospital since discharge after stroke and I’m pleased to report that my weight did not change much with a loss of 0.1 lb which means I achieved the goal set last of standstill or a small loss . I have generally been keeping my calorie intake lower than energy expenditure with a deficit of 500 calories or more but had a couple of bad days with calorie loaded ready meals.The wet, cold and windy weather definitely curtailed the amount of outdoor exercise that I dd. I just managed a step average of about 5,000 steps a day. There has alsobeen more white carbs in my meals this week ( potatoes pasta and rice) and this is not good for weight loss. Next week weather permitting I hope to get more outside exercise and I plan to keep to my normal low white carbohydrate diet with loads of vegetables and berries. If I can do both I should record another small weight loss or at the very least a standstill next Sunday. That is my goal for the week ahead. However it’s Christmas time and I’ll need a lot of will power to avoid eating too many treats that Santa may have left.
I hope you all have had a good week and that you are keeping safe and fit in these uncertain times. I also hope that the lockdown, the easing of it and the threat from the new variant of the COVID virus is not having too much of a detrimental effect on your scales. Keep positive and safe and have a great Christmas
