My Weight Loss Journey

My Weight Loss Journey – Week 10

Week 10

Summary

Woohoo! I finally did it! My weight finally, officially dropped below the dreaded 76kg! It was a long and winding road, but I made it to this milestone. All I needed was a weekend without celebrating one thing or another.

Was it a good week? No, it wasn’t. I was going down my rabbit hole of depression as I have finished writing my trilogy and am at a bit of a loss for what to write next. My brain can’t seem to focus on anything, and all I want to do is eat and play this puzzle game on my phone. I should spend this precious time reading up on all those lovely indie authors whom I promised to read their books. And promoting my books…

Exercise

Needless to say, I didn’t stick to my exercise routine. I didn’t do any yoga either over the weekend, not the new ones or the old ones. Result: a terribly locked up-right shoulder that keeps me from sleeping without painkillers. I took the armrests off my desk chair yesterday in the hope this alleviated the pain, but it only seems to have made it worse. As a last resort, I have swapped my large keyboard for a narrower one, hoping that not having to reach out with my right arm to get to my mouse helps. I’ve only been sitting like this for 1.5 hours now and I can already feel my back starting to hurt. It appears that my back muscles are not as strong as my front muscles, pulling me into a fetal position; i.e. with a crooked back. I need to do strengthening exercises for my back muscles so they can compensate the pulling at the front.

Results

As mentioned, I am very proud to tell you that my weight this morning was 75.7kg (11.9 stone) and my waist has shrunken yet again to 80.5 cm (31.7 inches). I must admit that measuring my waist is slightly subjective, but I do my best not to lie to myself 🙂 .

I tried to smile for the photo, but it seems like I have a toothache. I won’t do it again.

I find this photo shows the best what I have achieved so far. My belly is almost at boob-level, my thighs are a smidgen less fat, and my butt has a nicer shape. I don’t know if it’s just me, but I think my arm is also a smidgen less fat. Could be it only looks that way because of the shade though.

Last week, I was so chaotic that I completely forgot to post my meal photos! I haven’t been taking a lot of photos anyway because they’re beginning to get a bit repetitive, but here they are from the last two weeks.

My goal for next week is to exercise every day and get rid of this back problem 🙂
