I was down to 83.1 kg this morning, but that's still 3.1 kg (not quite 7 pounds) short of target. I must be getting quite close to my natural sustainable weight, and those last few pounds will be difficult. Well, leaner meals and a good deal of walking about should do the trick. I find that any main meal based around chicken is a winner for modest calories intake, and I've got enough chicken in my freezer to make me skeletal! And spring is in the air, so that a stroll in the sunshine is an attractive possibility.
The funny thing is, that although the scales tell me I'm still heavy, and I mean quite a bit heavier than many of my friends, my arms and legs are definitely getting more slender. Here's a few shots of myself being silly in last week's pre-badminton warm up:
I think you'll grant that, while not a stick insect, I'm far from obese.
Incidentally that was a hot outfit to wear. I undid a few buttons, but still steamed. I should have worn a sleeveless top; and I'll be glad when I can put on shorts, and dispense with leggings and the necessary mini-skirt!
I'm pleased with the slimmed down look, and will try to stay with it in the months ahead. But if I plump up a bit, and that may be unavoidable during my convalescence, well, that'll be perfectly OK with me. I don't want to develop bingo wings, but I'd much rather be rounded and cuddly, than thin and scrawny. So I'm not throwing away my size 16 and 18 clothes just yet!
