Or Perhaps There's Something in the Water...

I don't know what it is, but something is helping me lose weight at the moment. It's not the gym because I haven't been since the week before we moved; it's not the salad leaves and celery sticks I've been living on, because I detest celery and don't exactly love salad; it's not the never eating chocolate or cake or biscuits, because I eat all of those on a daily basis.

What I do know is that I'm sitting at my computer a lot less and out in the fresh air a lot more, so I guess the fact that I'm moving around more is leading to 1) less time sitting around eating = less calories in 2) more time moving around = more calories burnt; and we all know what that equation equals: pounds lost!

But, nonetheless, a 2lb overnight weightloss was a major surprise for me, especially this far into the journey when I've expected to have to fight for every ounce lost (and, I must admit, I've definitely not been fighting, but rather more going with the flow and enjoying the weightloss I've achieved so far.)

13st 5lbs - 187lbs - BMI 31.1

(a total loss so far of 75lbs; 19lbs to go)
