Yes I have lost some weight. Not much but more to the point I have tried to institute a lifestyle change. There are two major areas that I have addressed:
I am not on a diet. I still have some fries when I feel like it although I am trying to feel like it less. Chocolate is still there but more occasionally. I am trying to eat more salads, fruits and vegetables. Even with main meals I am trying to up their intake and lower my meat intake.
I am exercising. It is amazing how much better this makes me feel.Â More importantly it means that I don’t have to watch as carefully what I eat. Because I don’t need to lose a lot of weight (I think about 7 kilos)Â I have a bit of flexibility in this a area. The 8 seconds at a time is a bit tedious. Even though I know that it will help me to lose weight quickly there also has to be a level of enjoyment in it all. I like to exercise and think. Concentrating on pedaling fast for 8 seconds precludes this. Most of the time I try to ensure that my pulse is in the working heart rate zone and I forget about the 8 second sprints. I
am looking forward to getting back out on the road again. But, the beauty of an exercise bike is that I can do it at night when its dark because that’s the time that I often get home. I am also using a rowing machine. This is good too because it is more an overall workout.
So there you have it. Not big changes but a couple of kilos is the result. Two kilos means that I can fit back into clothes a bit more comfortably. It has meant about an inch off my waist measurement. And I feel a little bit better about myself because I have achieved something positive. To me they are all good results so far.
